Guest Designer - Two Cards & Two Videos by Therese Calvird!

Hi there,
I'm Therese from www.lostinpaper.com  and I am so excited to share two cards and two videos today.  My first design features a sweet stamp set called Coffeesaurus and I filmed as I created so you could watch the process.

I kept the design fun and simple and used a sentiment from Hedgehog with Sign so that I could use this as an all occasion card, who knows when you are going to need a coffee drinking dinosaur, right?





For my second design I wanted to make it look like this little Pool Piggie was in a swimming pool and I thought it would be fun to make an easy Circle Slider card.


The sentiment for this set came from the Go Wild stamp set


and I have a video here showing you how this came together.


Hope you have enjoyed both of my cards and videos today!  Have a great and crafty day, Hugs,

Guest Designer Pri - i love us

Hello...Pri here guest designing for Gerda Steiner Designs today...and I'm sharing yet another creation that I have made using the Pool Piggies stamp set...I guess I was on a roll when I was creating cards with this stamp set...loved every minute..!!

Me And My Daily Papercraft Blog - Handmade By Pri

The card base of my card is made from a blue textured cardstock card base... and I have used plain white cardstock cut to size for the top layer...I used the waves WRMK next level embossing folder to emboss this top layer and then sponged in some blue distress inks to give it a watery feel....I have used salty ocean,tumbles glass and blueprint sketch shades here..I have also splattered some water and white acrylic paint on this layer...

Using my alphabet dies and a heart die,I die cut the sentiment from glitter cardstock and layered it with white craft foam and adhered it at the top left of my card..

On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped the piggies and two float mats and coloured them in and cut them out...I adhered one piggy on each of the mat and used some craft foam underneath before adhering them to the card...

To embellish my card,I have used clear sequins in various sizes on which I have adhered some tiny dark blue rhinestones as well...

Be happier than a Unicorn

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and the Gerda Steiner Designs Moody Unicorns stamp set is probably my favorite unicorn set of all times and as you all know they are quite trendy at the moment:


  • stamp one of the Gerda Steiner Designs Moody Unicorns and the cupcake from the same set with Versafine (Onyx Black) onto a piece of watercolor paper
  • color the images with Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer Pencils and a damp watercolor brush
  • cut out a stitched panel from watercolor paper and create a background using Distress Inks (Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass)
  • mist the background with pearlized water for more texture
  • cut some cloud shapes from vellum using the Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Borders dies
  • stamp the sentiment from the Mama Elephant Unicorns and Rainbows set with Altenew Crisp Ink (Cotton Candy)
  • cut out some hearts from purple glitter cardstock with the help of the Mama Elephant Confetti die and add some of them as final embellishments

Leave a little sparkle wherever you go.

Yours,
