Guest Designer at Gerda Steiner Designs.

Hi Folks,

Im here today with my second Guest Designer Post for Gerda Steiner Designs.  

I loved playing with the ever so sweet bunnies and their friends over the last couple of weeks.

 Stamp Set I got to play with is called Hoppiness 
Hoppiness 4x6 Clear Stamp Set
How cute are the bunnies and their buddies!!! Hop on over and grab a set too!!! 
For my first creation I wanted something CAS. I went for this cute pair of Love Buns!!! I made the background behind them with the fence stamp and then added a distress ink Northern Nights effect sky. By chance I had some tiny star gems so added them to finish it off. 
I decorated the insert with one of the dinky stamps from the set too.

Since there are bunnies it made me think of Easter and chocolate!! So my second creation today is a wee Easter Basket with a tag. Oh those mini eggs were tasty!!!

Thank You Teacher...

Hi Folks,

Happy Weekend!!!

Im here today with a thank you card that Tom wanted me to make for one of his Teachers who left the school yesterday. He and his friend Dylan signed it and off they popped to give it to him. 

He got on so well with Dr Milne and he and Dylan would stay behind after school to learn more about his travels. 

It was serendipity as well as I wanted to make a Thank You card for the challenge my Blog Buddy Janice is Hostessing over on Oh La La Challenge this week!!!

Guest Designer at Gerda Steiner Designs...

Morning Everyone.

WOW where did January go to? I cant beleive we are already in February!!!

Im  here today with a couple of creations from the Lovey Gerda Steiner Designs.  I was over the moon to be asked to be a Guest Designer with them this month and showcase some crafty makes using their latest release a Stamp Set called Hoppiness.
Hoppiness 4x6 Clear Stamp Set
The stamps are beautiful and ink wonderfully. I have to say delivery was mega fast as well. They arrived within 5 days of being sent from America to here in Scotland!!! The store has some amazing  Digi Images as well if you can't wait for The Post Peep to come deliver to you.

I thought I would make a candle and card set. I think it would be a great gift for a special someone. 
Stamps with a Candle Tutorial is HERE!  (golly I thought it was only about 2 years ago I did it!! Turns out it was 2012!!! Golly where do the years go!!!! )

My second creation today has a more masculine feel to it.  I really loved the cute wee owls as well so had a play with him and turned him into triplets. 
Ive coloured with Owls in with promarkers and then added a little prismacolour pencil for their feathers. I also used my promarkers for the sunset background. 
As I used a tweed type paper I thought I would follow my Scottish theme and use a wee Rennie Mackintosh style Border on the inside.
