Merry Christmas Big Time!

December 20, 2019 in Gerda Steiner Designs - No Comments

Happy Friday! I’ve got one more Christmas card to share today using the adorable Oh Manatee stamps from Gerda Steiner Designs. I couldn’t resist putting a Santa hat on this cutie!

The Santa hat is from the On The Table stamp set and it fits so many of the GSD critters!

I inked a background with Tumbled glass, Broken China, Peacock Feathers and a little bit of Evergreen Bough distress inks. I sprinkled a little water on it with a paintbrush and matted the background on a patterned paper from the new “Little Merry Christmas” paper pack from La-La Land Crafts.

I heat embossed sentiments from this stamp set and the Balancing Mouse stamp set using Wow! Apple Red embossing powder. I love how the font of the sentiments matched up pretty closely.

I then stamped the Santa hat on Copic friendly cardstock, masked it and stamped the manatee. I stamped the kelp 5 times and colored all of the images with Copics. I fussy cut everything and created the little scene.

Pretty quick and easy!

Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!
