Gerda Steiner Designs - Blog Hop from Outer Space

Hey everyone!

... and welcome to our Blog Hop from Outer Space! Gerda Steiner Designs and the awesome Design Team invite all of you to participate in the celebration!




So there are two new and absolutely ADORABLE new clear stamp sets in da house! To celebrate the new release, we decided on making a blog hop for you guys! Feel free to hop with us and see all of the amazing projects!


                                                                                   Alien Invasion                       Blast Off



With my first two cards, I focused on the Blast Off stamp set. I created an Ink blended background with a few water and white Ink droplets. Then I placed my white heat embossed sentiment and the rocket on it. Isn't the rocket just so cool?! I loved coloring it out with Copic Markers!




I'm a big fan of watercoloring lately! Especially the "messy kind of" watercoloring! (is it so called?!) On that card, I stamped all of my elements on watercolor cardstock and put some color with lots of water on my elements. All of the aliens included in both of the sets are super fun to color! Because hey - I expect nobody knows what they really look like, haha! And I went with a green one here :)
Do you see the flag? Most of the sentiments fit into it!





I wanted an interactive card so bad for this blog hop! Universe and aliens and planets - all of that just screams for dynamic and interactive elements. Sooooooo I cut out a few of these planets from the Alien Invasion stamp set and hung them up on threads. Then I created (once again) a watercolored background in blue tones. To let the planets and the earth (I consider it to be the earth) really be the focal point, I put a piece of vellum over the inner part of the background. Afterwards, I fixed everything with lots and lots of foam tape! Oh! And for Mr. Alien sitting in his UFO, I created a mask underneath the globe of the UFO ;)




These were my inspiration cards for the release of the brandnew Blast Off and Alien Invasion stamp sets!
