Hello Spring

February 15, 2016

Hello, Jeanin here and I am super excited to be Guest Designing for Gerda Steiner Designs today. I have a card to share using the adorable Happy Spring Set.

I started off by stamping the little bunny using black waterproof ink on some white cardstock. I also created a mask for the bunny because I wanted to stamp the grass stamp along the bottom of the card behind the bunny. For the background I used a self-made stencil to create some fluffy clouds. I placed the stencil on my cardstock and applied a light blue ink with a blending tool along the edge of the stencil. To give the scene a little bit more detail I also stamped two of the flower stamps along the grass and wanted to let the bunny blow some soap bubbles, which I stamped across the cloudy background. 



I colored in the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and added the sentiment "Hello Spring" in the top center of the card using blue ink. To finish off my card I die cut my panel with a stitched rectangle die and adhered it to a top-folding white notecard. I also applied a bit of Glossy Accents to the soap bubbles.

I really, really love this set. It includes so many fun images to build a variety of scenes.
