Moose Friend - Masculine Birthday Card

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today to share a card I created using Gerda Steiner’s upcoming new release named, Moose Friend. 
 
Honestly, I'm pretty neutral to moose generally but I will say this set is adorable and I love his expression. This is the perfect set that can be used for a masculine card and I know we all have a shortage of images that aren't too cutesy for the men in our lives.
 
For today's card, I stamped out the main moose image and colored him up. I decided to fussy cut him out because I couldn't decide what to do with him. I thought about putting him against a woodgrain background or maybe even have him up on a wall... but in the end, I found this piece of plaid patterned paper that was just perfect! The card came together quickly after that.

I trimmed down the patterned paper on the sides by half an inch and matted it on kraft cardstock. There is a small heart image, which I stamped in between all the black squares and heat embossed using gold embossing powder. It added a subtle detail to the background. 
 
For the sentiment, I decided to stamp the sentiment on black cardstock and heat embossed it using the same gold embossing powder. 
 
This turned out to be a perfect masculine card and now I have it ready in my stash for any guy's birthday, it's not too girly or cutesy and has a bit of a woodsy feel to it. What do you think? 

I have a few more ideas for this stamp set, so I'll pop in with more ideas to share with you! Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with one of Gerda Steiner Designs' newer stamp sets named, Meerkats on the Lookout! Isn't it super cute?



Per usual, I went first with a scene card because I wanted to use all the stamp images. I stamped everything out and masked everything as well because I wanted to do an ink blended background. I first blended browns and greens for the...

Girl and Bunny

 Hi, Margreet here.
I created a spring card with the sweet digital stamp Girl and Bunny from Gerda Steiner Designs.
I started with glueing the design paper onto a kraft card. I distressed the DP with a paper distresser.
Then I die cut the grass border twice and glued it on the border with the bunnies.
Printed and colored the image with copics, fussy cut and placed it behind the die cut with the...
