Happy Birthday Badge-Card

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I created this fun badge-card using the Gerda Steiner Designs Juggling Tiger:

  • resize the adorable Gerda Steiner Designs Juggling Tiger in order to fit his face to a 3 cm (1.2'') badge and print it out twice
  • color both images identically with Delta and Touch Twin Brush Markers
  • add highlights with a white gel pen
  • I used my new Bandai Badge it! to create the pin out of one of the images - so many possibilities, don't you think?
  • cut out a stitched panel around the second image and color the background with alcohol markers as well
  • stamp the sentiment from the Gerda Steiner Designs Happy Hoppy stamp set with Versafine (Onyx Black)
  • I adhered the badge to the card with three rolled glue dots ... the recipient should be able to take off the badge without ruining the card itself

This is a picture of the card without the badge:


The Gerda Steiner Designs Juggling Tiger was part of the Digital Stamp Bundle August 2016 and is now sold separately. If you like stamp bundles with adorable images and a discount on top, you should really check out the Digital Stamp Bundle September 2016 which is available until the end of the month.


I hope you got inspired.

Yours,

A Very Thankful Mouse

Hi there!
I'm Anna (al_handmade) and today I want to share with you a project featuring a sweet little mouse from the super adorable “Fall Mice” stamp set.



For this card I wanted to create a nice background to my lovely furry friend. I started drawing a sun ray shape on a white card panel and cut it off. Then I stamped some fruits and veggies with Memento Ink London Fog on copic-friendly paper and colored them with Copic Markers in order to create a colorful background pattern.
At first, I wanted to use saturated fall colors but then I decided to go for softer shades. Maybe I'm not in an autumnal state of mind yet! :) Finally I masked my colored background with the sun ray frame previously cut.



I stamped the cute critter and colored it with my Copic markers - trying to give him a furry look. Since I wanted to use a sentiment about love and affection, I added a big glossy heart in his arms.

Finally I heat embossed the sentiment on vellum with some golden powder - adding one last shiny touch to my card.



Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed this project.
See you next week!
