Welcome To The World

Hello, crafty friends! I'm back today with another card featuring a very cute and recently released Go Wild Clear Stamp Set by Gerda Steiner Designs which turns out to be perfect for creating any adventure scenes with adorable animals. 

And here is what I came up with for today:

Yes, this stamp set came also in handy for making newborn baby cards 😊

I started off by creating ink blended background and then spritzed some water on the panel to get the spots. Once this was done, I die cut a star on one side of the panel and added some false stitches on the other one. After placing a piece of design paper and the panel on the card base, I stamped a mouse, an elephant and balloons onto a piece of paper and colored them with my Copics. Then I put all the elements together and added the stamped sentiment. Since the card looked a little empty I added a butterfly and a cloud to fill in the empty space. And that's how this project was created 😃

Well, I guess that's all for today 😊

Thanks for stopping by! See you next time!

Wild Birthday

Hi there, everyone! Hope you're doing well. Today I would like to reveal some great news I've been waiting to share with you for quite some time now. I'm really happy to announce that I'll be once again guest designing for my all time favorite Gerda Steiner Designs 💃

For the next couple of weeks I'll be sharing with you some projects of mine featuring the recently released Go Wild Clear Stamp Set which is perfect for any adventure scenes with cute animals and a ranger. For today's project I wanted to use as many images from the set as possible, that's why I decided to go with a tunnel card. I practically reached my goal (and even used a bunny from Hoppiness Clear Stamp Set), but in the end it turned out that an elephant was taking too much space on the card, so you will see him in my next project 😉 

And here is what I came up with:

To create this card I cut three windows in two panels and a card base and stamped the sentiment inside the card. All layers of the tunnel were colored with blue and green distress inks - like the sky and the grass, and, of course, spritzed with some water to get the spots. Then I placed all the characters on the layers which actually turned out to be the most challenging part of the project 😃

To tell you the truth, it's been always hard for me to find stamps for creating cards for boys, but now with this great set it became just a piece of cake. Thank you, Gerda, for such a great design!

I hope you liked my little inspiration. Thanks for stopping by! See you next time!
