Happy Halloween with Gerda Steiner Designs

Hello everyone! Hope your weekend has been great so far as I was busy fulfilling card orders and making a craft haul purchase!

Firstly, i have an announcement to make - I MADE IT TO THE GERDA STEINER DESIGN TEAM! My first official stamp company DT. Gerda Steiner designs and illustrates her own Digital Stamps and i found her on Instagram a few weeks ago when there was a cute image of a dog on scooter. Then i fell in love with her Diving Hippo, which i am so glad that she decided to use the hippo as the DT badge! Now i can look at it everyday on my blog! Hahaha.. And in case you are wondering, you can purchase the Diving Hippo Digital Stamp in her shop (Click on the Badge for the link). I love to see her sketches posted on her instagram as it is so behind-the-scene! Follow her and send her some love! Instagram: Gerda Steiner Designs

Here's a card i made for GSD August Progressive Challenge: Halloween Themed.

In Asian countries, we don't celebrate Halloween as much as the states. To me, the Seventh Month Ghost Festival gets more attention than Halloween Party. Anyway, the digital stamp to download this month is the Kid in Pumpkin Costume.

Check out the Challenge Blog to participate and stand a chance to win more digital stamps.

For this card, i used Prismacolor color pencils to color the digital image. Safe colors to stick with are: Purple, Green, Orange and Black - Totally Halloween-ed colors!

I printed an additional image to color the pumpkin only and cut the pumpkin pieces out. Using a penknife, i carefully cut the eyes and mouth out too. Remember to use a black marker to outline the outside so no white edges can be seen. Next, i used 3D foam squares to pop up the pumpkin so it it will look like its glowing inside!

Papers from Graphic 45 and Webster Pages. The sentiment "Too cute to spook" is also from the Webster Pages paper, which i cut out from. This boy in the pumpkin isn't scary at all, right?! So this sentiment fits it perfectly!


Hiya Madey nice to meet you we are design buddies for Gerda. Looking forward to getting to know you. Love your creations.
