Happy Heart Day Series | Beary Lovable ft. Gerda Steiner "Warm Fuzzies"
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
Today's card fits in two different series', but in the interest of not having a title as long as the blog itself, I'll keep it to my Happy Heart Day Series today; though, as you can see it would also fit in the Coloured on Kraft Series.
Anyone who watches card making videos on YouTube has had to have seen stamps by Gerda Steiner Designs. This is the first time that I am trying them out and I have to say that I'm very much impressed. They have a bunch of sets and I'm very excited to get my hands on more of them.
To begin, I stamped this bear from Gerda Steiner's "Warm Fuzzies" with VersaMark ink on 65lb Kraft paper by Recollections, then coloured him with Prismacolor Premier pencils.
I used an inside out stitched rectangle to cut him from the centre of the paper. I then used an open heart stamp randomly about the outer frame and then coloured them with pencils as well. I adhered the frame to the front of a standard A2 sized card base and added the little bear piece back inside.
To cover the cut edge, but preserve the stitching, I laid down a line of liquid adhesive and sprinkled red glitter over it.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar or over on Facebook, so you don't miss any future posts. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
