Happy Birthday Rainbow Card

Hi there,

it's time for a new Challenge over on the Addicted to Stamps and More Blog and I would like to show you this Rainbow Birthday Card:

  • cut put a stitched panel from white cardstock and stamp the sentiment from the Gerda Steiner Designs Happy Hoppy set with Altenew Crisp Ink (Crimson, Coral Berry, Orange Cream, Warm Sunshine, Parrot, Persian Blue, Deep Iris)
  • stamp the cat from the Taylored Expressions If Cats could talk set with Memento (Tuxedo Black) and color the image with Delta, Touch Twin Brush and Copic Markers
  • mount the panel onto a Neenah Desert Storm Kraft cardbase

I hope you got inspired.

Reindeer Shaker

Hi there,

I created this sweet little shaker card using stamps from the Gerda Steiner Designs Peeking Friends stamp set:

  • cut out a stitched panel from Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardstock using one of the My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Rectangles 
  • cut out a Christmas Tree from that panel with the help of one of the dies from the Sizzix Festive Fancies set
  • glue a piece of acetate behind the oping and surround it with a double layer of double-sided foam tape
  • fill the shaker element with clear and green seed beads and close it with a piece of patterned paper from the Crate Paper Snow & Cocoa 6x6 paper pad
  • cut out another wonky stitched panel from patterned paper from that same paper pad and adhere all the layers to a Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardbase
  • stamp the cute little reindeer from the Gerda Steiner Designs Peeking Friends set with Versafine Onyx Black
  • color the image with Faber-Castell Albrecht-Dürer pencils and add Stickles Glitter Glue Christmas Red to its nose
  • add highlights with a white gel pen
  • stamp the sentiment from the same stamp set onto a strip of patterned paper with Versafine Onyx Black and heat-emboss it with clear embossing powder for extra dimension
  • layer a thin strip of red glitter paper underneath the sentiment strip to match the nose of the reindeer

Here is an additional picture o the card:
