Hippo & Friends - Jeannie Lieu (InsideoutJeans)

Hello all! I'm back with a compilation of some of my favorite stamp sets (Moody Unicorn, Hippo with Butterly, Hoppiness). The best thing about GSD stamps is that they work well together and you can easily mix and match.


Since the main card is focused on the different animals, I wanted to use a background that was colorful and fun. I've been really enjoying playing with distress oxide inks lately. Even though I don't have many of them, I love how I was able to use three of them (Worn Lipstick, Broken China, Fossilized Amber) to create six different colors, essentially the rainbow! I sprinkled a bit of water and picked it up with a paper towel. And if that wasn't enough, I wanted to add a little pizzazz so I used the gold color from the Finetec watercolor palette and sprinkled it over the background. It's a bit hard to pick up in the pictures but you can see how subtly pretty it makes the background. I'm in love! 



I really loved how this card turned out and I hope you all enjoyed it too. Have a great day!!!

Strawberry Mouse

Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I would like to show you how to create this quick and easy greeting card:

  • color the Gerda Steiner Designs Strawberry Mouse with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens, Distress Markers and a damp watercolor Brush
  • use one of the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches dies to cut put a stitched panel from watercolor paper
  • create a quick watercolor background using Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors
  • stamp the sentiment from the Paper Smooches Sugar Rush set with Versafine (Onyx Black)
  • use kraft cardstock as a base

Thanks for stopping by.

Yours,

Shaking Hippo - Jeannie Lieu (InsideoutJeans)

Hello everyone! I'm back again with another card featuring the new Hippo with Butterfly stamp. This time the Hippo isn't hiding behind a fence. I wanted to mimic Gerda's logo that you see on your stamp sets.

The butterfly that comes along with the set is super cute and perfect for being part of a shaker card. It was a little tough to fussy cut but it was totally worth it. I used a heart die to cut the opening of the shaker and filled it with sequins and the butterflies. It is a simple card, but I think it turned our really cute. The hippo is SO lovable! I just can't wait to see what everyone does with this set.

Until next time!
