Guest Designer at Gerda Steiner Designs...

Morning Everyone.

WOW where did January go to? I cant beleive we are already in February!!!

Im  here today with a couple of creations from the Lovey Gerda Steiner Designs.  I was over the moon to be asked to be a Guest Designer with them this month and showcase some crafty makes using their latest release a Stamp Set called Hoppiness.
Hoppiness 4x6 Clear Stamp Set
The stamps are beautiful and ink wonderfully. I have to say delivery was mega fast as well. They arrived within 5 days of being sent from America to here in Scotland!!! The store has some amazing  Digi Images as well if you can't wait for The Post Peep to come deliver to you.

I thought I would make a candle and card set. I think it would be a great gift for a special someone. 
Stamps with a Candle Tutorial is HERE!  (golly I thought it was only about 2 years ago I did it!! Turns out it was 2012!!! Golly where do the years go!!!! )

My second creation today has a more masculine feel to it.  I really loved the cute wee owls as well so had a play with him and turned him into triplets. 
Ive coloured with Owls in with promarkers and then added a little prismacolour pencil for their feathers. I also used my promarkers for the sunset background. 
As I used a tweed type paper I thought I would follow my Scottish theme and use a wee Rennie Mackintosh style Border on the inside.
