Happy Birthday Badge-Card

Hi there,

I created this fun badge-card using a brand new Digital Stamp from Gerda Steiner Designs:
  • resize the adorable Gerda Steiner Designs Juggling Tiger in order to fit his face to a 3 cm (1.2'') badge and print it out twice
  • color both images identically with Delta and Touch Twin Brush Markers
  • add highlights with a white gel pen
  • I used my new Bandai Badge it! to create the pin out of one of the images - so many possibilities, don't you think?
  • cut out a stitched panel around the second image and color the background with alcohol markers as well
  • stamp the sentiment from the Gerda Steiner Designs Happy Hoppy stamp set with Versafine (Onyx Black)
  • I adhered the badge to the card with three rolled glue dots ... the recipient should be able to take off the badge without ruining the card itself

This is a picture of the card without the badge:

I hope you got inspired.

1 Die 8 Looks: Part 4 - Embossing with the Die

Hi there,

this is the next part of my series over at the Karten-Kunst Blog. Part 4 is all about embossing with the flower die:

  • emboss the Memory Box Sketch Daisy onto a piece of watercolor paper
  • stamp the sentiment from the Karten-Kunst Frühlingserwachen set with Versafine (Smokey Gray)
  • create a background using watered-down Distress Inks (Wild Honey, Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalde) and a watercolor brush
  • add splatters with the same inks
  • add the left over silhouette from Project 3
  • mat the panel onto a piece of grey cardstock and create a 1/16'' border with the help of the Mini Perfect Layers Tool

Here are the links to the other parts:
Part 1 - Black Silhouette against Alcohol Ink Background
Part 2 - Flower against Watercolor Background
Part 3 - Vellum Cutout

Be sure to visit again next week for Part 5 of my little series 1 Die 8 Looks.
