Build A Scene with Accessory Stamps | Gerda Steiner Designs

Why to use accessory stamps included in sets?  How can you stretch your stamps sets with smaller stamps?

Hello Everybody!

This is my second post as a guest designer for Gerda Steiner Designs in October. The first Guest Designing post you can read HERE.

Today I am featuring the Gerda Steiner Designs REINDEER AND A TREE Clear Stamp Set ( SSS | GSD ). This set includes eight main stamps - a tree, Santa and six reindeers, as well as several accessory stamps for decorating Christmas Tree.

My FIRST card with this set illustrated a scene of decorating a tree.

This time my aim is to show you how to build a new scene with accessory stamps, like light bulbs from the Reindeer And A Tree stamp set, for instance.

Accessory stamps are small images complementing the main images, which can be used for decorating a card.

Using accessory stamps
  • stretch your stamps sets possibilities 
  • facilitate creating new scenes
  • connect images in one design
  • and introduce colourful details.

Tips on making this card

  • Start with stamping Santa and three reindeers from the Reindeer And A Tree stamp set down onto a white card stock panel sized 5 3/8" by 4 1/8" in alcohol marker friendly ink.
  • Trace a wire with a pencil and stamp down light bulbs.
  • Using Copic Sketch markers colour the images.
  • Apply Glossy Accents to the light bulbs and let it air dry completely. It is difficult to make tiny masks for light bulbs. Glossy coverage will resist inks during ink blending.

  • Stamp reindeers and Santa images to a masking paper and fussy cut out the images.  
  • Cover the reindeers and Santa with masks and mask off the lower part of the card panel with a fussy cut mask to create a horizon line. 
  • Blend softly two shades of Distress inks above the mask.
  • Remove all the masks and add shadows on the snow with an alcohol marker.
  • Draw a wire with a permanent ink pen.
  • To create ombre effect on the sentiment pick two shades of red inks. Firstly, ink the sentiment with the lighter shade ink completely and stamp down to the card panel. 
  • Then apply the darker ink to the lower part of the sentiment stamp and dab off ink with a soft paper tissue, then stamp it down.
  • Trim a bright patterned paper sheet to 5 1/2" by 4 1/4" and glue it to a white card note.
  • Foam mount the card panel over.
