Pool Piggies Guest Design Gerda Steiner Designs

Hello!! I'm super excited to be Guest Designing for Gerda Steiner Designs for this super cute Pool Piggies stamp set! There are so many super fun summer cards I have in mind!

My first card is with a fun distressed background. I used my Tim Holtz distress inks but this background was one of a few that I was experimenting with and unfortunately forgot to write down my colors. Lesson learned! If I were to venture a guess, I would say I used Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Faded Jeans. I diecut the distressed background with my Striped Sentiment Strip Die to create the white lines. I thought it broke up the background nicely.

I colored up my cute piggie and raft and cut them out with my Scan N Cut machine then pop dotted it onto my card front.



Copics
Raft - YR14, YR16, YR18
Shorts - B02, B04, YG09, YG06, YG03

Distress Inks & Magical Day 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store

Happy Saturday! I have two posts today so if you are looking for the Kraftin Kimmie Saturday Challenge please click HERE.

I'm on the blog today for 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store with a super fun distressed background AND .... I have a process video to go with it ! Please excuse my voice in it as I'm just getting over a head cold .

For this background I'm using my Distress Ink Oxides and a ziploc bag! Crazy what we find around the house to use on our projects! I'll have all the supplies listed out below the picture and be sure to check out my video! 

I colored up my adorable little unicorn with copic markers and cut it out with my Scan n Cut. I highly recommend getting one of these if you plan on stamping a lot - that is - if you HATE fussy cutting like me ha! I know they are pricey - but totally worth it! 

Anywho - I used pop dots for my unicorn for some dimension and the sentiment I stamped straight onto my card. I use the Misti Stamping Tool to do all my stamping. I seriously cannot say enough good things about this tool. I am horrible at lining things up straight or sometimes things don't stamp all the way and good luck trying to line it back up - clear block or not - its a pain. This stamping tool is awesome! 




Supplies
(regular distress inks will work too!)
Neenah White Solar Cardstock
Papertrey Ink cardstock (purple base)
Craft Mat
Spritz bottle
Paper Towel
Ziploc Bag
Copics
Body - C2, C1, C0, C00

C. C. Designs Popsicle & Distress Inks

Hope you are all having a wonderful day! I was experimenting the other day with my distress inks and tried my hand at creating a background with my tool.

I took my blending tool and just pressed down and turned to create these circles. Something different to try - 

Then I colored up my little Popsicle girl from C.C. Designs, trying to match colors and cut her out with my Scan and Cut. Poof! Done!

Cutie Butterfly C.C. Designs

I had a lot of fun making this card! This is Cutie Butterfly from the May release of C.C. Designs. Fantastic release this month - as usual I'm in love with them all!!

For this one, I dug out my distress ink oxides. I created my background by blending my oxides and spritzing with water. My image I colored with copic markers and cut out with my Scan n Cut. I adhered it to my card with foam squares. The sentiment is heat embossed and finished off the final touches with some Nuvo drops! Everything I love to play with on one card! My world is complete ha!
