Halloween Cat

Hi there,

it's time for a new Challenge over at the Skipping Stones Design Blog and this time we would like to see some Halloween Projects:

  • stamp the adorable cat from the Skipping Stones Design Holiday Cats stamp set with Versafine (Vintage Sepia) onto a stitched panel cut from Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardstock
  • color the image with Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor Pencils and Zest-it
  • add a highlight to the nose with a white gel pen
  • stamp the sentiment from the same set with Versamark onto a strip of patterned paper from the Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale Patternd & Solids 6x6 paper pad and heat-emboss it with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder
  • layer the orange strip on top of a purple strip from the same patterned paper pad and add stitching using one of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders dies
  • add a strip of dark brown cardstock and a strip of patterend paper to the left side of the panel before adhering it to a cardbase

I can't wait to see your creations in the gallery.

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:
