You Are koalafied for a hug!

September 15, 2017 in Gerda Steiner Designs - No Comments

Hi again and happy Friday!  I haven’t been able to do much crafting or post over the past couple weeks due to family circumstances and Hurricane Irma rolling through town and knocking out our power for a few days, but I’m finally back with a new card to share.

I’ve used quite a few MFT products on this one and the cute koala stamp is from Gerda Steiner Designs “You’re Koalafied” stamp set.

First I cut a piece of white cardstock 3 3/4″ x 5″ and a piece of vellum 4 3/4″ x 6″. I created a stencil out of the vellum piece by die-cutting an MFT Stitched Dome Stax die-namics die about 1 1/2″ from the top edge of the vellum and centered left and right. I then taped the vellum over the white cardstock overlapping the edges of the white cardstock by 1″ all around (this gave me an edge of the vellum to tape down).

I airbrushed the dome area using Copic Y21 and then taped an MFT Radiating Rays stencil over the top of the vellum and airbrushed again with Copic Y23 and Y26.

I added a thin die-cut strip of green cardstock using the MFT Grassy Edges die-namics  and stamped, colored and die-cut my koala from the Gerda Steiner Designs set. I stamped a sentiment from this set below the scene.

For the “hug” sentiment, I airbrushed a small piece of white cardstock using Copic YR61, YR02, YR65 and R01 and then die-cut from this piece using the MFT Hugs die-namics die. I cut the “s” off of the end of this die-cut to fit my sentiment.

The patterned paper underneath is an MFT paper.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card and have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!
