Peek-a-boo Pull Tab card | GSD

Hi there! It’s Jeannie and I’m so happy to be back to share a card as an official Design Team member.

Gerda Steiner Designs recently released a handful of new stamp sets and they are all adorable! Today, I’m focusing one of the smaller sets, Upside Down Flamingo. This set comes with one large flamingo and two large sentiments. I think it’s such a cute image… it’s so silly and I love it!

When I first saw this stamp set, I liked how the head was between the legs peeking at you. I thought it was perfect for an interactive card.

Putting this together was a little tricky because I just wasn’t sure how to go about creating it but once I figured it out, it turned better than expected. It’s also just as silly as the image.

This is a spin on a pull tab using the element of the stamp image itself. Check it out in my video tutorial here:

Hope you love this card as much as I do. I think it’ll bring a smile to anyone’s face. It’s so random and unexpected.

Have a Ball! | Gerda Steiner Designs

Hello everyone! It’s been awhile since I’ve shared one of my cards and I really am loving this one. If you’re a fan of animals, especially doggies, this Dachshunds stamp set is for you! You’ll see that I used the Hoppiness stamp set as well to add a few extra elements to the card as well.

I used a grassy hills die to create a stencil. Using distress inks, I colored two layers of the grass. I definitely wanted to use two of the dogs in the set. I like how the first dog is looking back. I can’t really tell if he’s looking at that butterfly on his tail or the other dog chasing the tennis ball.

Since the second dog looked to be moving, I wanted to put him in action. And what dog doesn’t love chasing balls? I just had to have him chase the tennis ball included in this set. I create a pull tab channel so he could run towards the ball.

I used two sentiments in this card: It’s Your Birthday and Have A Ball. The first one is prominent on the front of the card, but the second one is hidden until the dog fetches the ball. It’s a small surprise for the card recipient.

I used the hearts and the butterfly from the Hoppiness set so I could add pop of color to the card. It looked a little too plain with just the doggies. I think it helps add that special something to the card.

I hope you enjoyed this card and picked up the set. It’s so fun! Thanks for stopping by!
