You lift me up

Hi there,

I created this Birthday Card using the sweet giraffe from WPlus9 as inspiration for the Addicted to Stamps and More Anything goes Challenge:

  • stamp the adorable giraffe, the balloon and the sentiment from the Wplus9 Party Animal set with Versafine (Onyx Black) onto a stitched panel of watercolor paper
  • color the image and the background with Derwent Inktense Pencils and a damp watercolor brush
  • layer the panel onto a piece of purple foiled cardstock before adhering all the layers to the cardbase

I hope you got inspired.

Yours,

Congrats Puppy

Hi there,

today, I would like to show you that you can use stamps from the Gerda Steiner Designs Christmas Puppies set all year round:


  • stamp the adorable little puppy from the Gerda Steiner Designs Christmas Puppies set with Versafine Onyx Black and color the image with Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor pencils
  • add highlights with a white gel pen
  • create a background on a stitched panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock with the help of the Altenew Simple Flowers set, Distress Inks (Aged Mahogany, Pumice Stone, Victorian Velvet) and water from your Mini Mister for a faux watercolor effect
  • add splatters with watered-down Distress Ink Black Soot
  • adhere the puppy to a strip of torn vellum
  • create the sentiment using the Lawn Fawn Big Scripty Words stamp set and the matching dies, Versamark, WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder and a piece of grey cardstock
  • mount all the elements onto a panel of that same grey cardstock used for the sentiment before adhering everything to the cardbase

Thanks for stopping by.

Yours,
