Hi, it’s Maureen Hayes back with another guest post here on the Gerda Steiner Blog. I love the Little Reindeer stamp set, and even though I’ve owned it for several years, I find myself reaching for it each season. It’s just so darn cute and always makes me smile! Today I created a card for Christmas combining images from several Gerda Steiner stamp sets, including of course Little Reindeer, Christmas Kitten, Carol Kitten and Up On The Housetop.
Each of the sets make lovely cards on their own, but I used MFT’s Stitched Collage Frame Die to allow me to use images from each on one card. I hope you like it.
I started by stamping all my images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Neenah 80lb. Solar White Cardstock. I had already cute my collage frame and made sure that I stamped each image where I wanted it to appear in the frame. I used Neenah paper because I knew I would be using my Copic markers to color and I find I get the best blend with Neenah. You can use any paper or coloring medium of your choice.
The Copic Markers I used are:R29, R37, R32, G07, G28, E00, E31, E35, E55, E57, Y06, C0, C02, C3, C9I also used my Signo Gel pens in White and Silver
Once I completed my coloring I glued my Stitched Collage Frame down and adhered the whole thing to a card base with plaid paper to give it a more festive, “Christmas” feel. I also added some Glossy accents to give some dimension to the ornaments, etc…
I hope you enjoyed the card and will consider looking at your sets of stamps to see what you can mix and match to create your own card!
I want to thank Gerda Steiner for allowing me to guest design here, it truly has been such a dream come come true and I can’t say enough about how wonderful they were to me or how much they helped. As a “super fan” of many years, it was a true honor to get to use their products on their blog.
