{Two Many Cards Video Series} featuring Gerda Steiner Designs + Giveaway!

Hi, everyone! Kalyn and I are back with our video series, Two Many Cards. If you missed our other videos in this series, check out the original post HERE, which explains how and why we're sharing our own unique take on the same products. 

Today, we're featuring On the Bookshelf by Gerda Steiner Designs! These stamps and dies are also sold separately at Ellen Hutson and Simon Says Stamp, and you can find those links below. There are a lot of sales going on this week so be sure to check 'em out!

This is one of my favourite sets by Gerda Steiner Designs. It has kitties, books, plants, a globe and a picture frame and, of course, a shelf that doubles as a desk and frame. Yes, really!

For my first card, I flipped the shelf and made it a desk for bookish kitty and her must-haves. All of the images were stamped with Archival Jet Black ink and watercoloured with distress inks. You can find all of the colours I used in the supply links below.

I love the simplicity of this first card, especially with the splattered glow anchoring the desk.

I went for a more artistic look for my second card. I also turned it into a shaker card by using the die for the desk as a frame.

My favourite part of this card is the repeating sentiment, which I stamped with the same distress inks I used to colour all of the images.

I filled the border with crystal from Studio Katia and retired sequins from Neat & Tangled. I've listed all of these supplies and substitutes below for your shopping convenience.

We’re giving away one $15 gift certificate to the Gerda Steiner Designs shop. One lucky winner will be chosen randomly from my video or Kalyn’s video. You must be a subscriber to both our channels!

Be sure to leave some love for both of us to increase your chances of winning! Comments will close at 11:59pm EST on November 27, 2018 and the winner will be announced in the YouTube description for today's video before the next video goes live. Be sure to check back to see if you're the lucky winner!

Please head over to Kalyn's blog and YouTube channel to see her beautiful take on On the Bookshelf!

Hi Emily, can you tell me who won this giveaway. I've looked but don't see it posted. Just curious.
