Puppy Mail - Colorful card by Jeannie with insideoutjeans

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with Gerda Steiner Design’s stamp set named, Puppy Mail. It's an adorable set that I see as pretty versatile. I have a couple of ideas to go with this stamp set, but I decided to start where I'm comfortable... a scene card! This set has the perfect components to create a fun scene using quite a few of these images and it's pretty easy! 


I stamped out these images on my A2 card panel and I also stamped them out on masking paper so I could mask them off. I wanted to use distress inks to create a quick scene. I started off by adding the road using browns, then added the sky above with some blues, and the filled in the rest with greens for the grassy areas. 


Once the distress inks filled up the background, all I needed to do was color. I added some details to the green grassy areas so they had some texture and it wasn't so flat. To finish off the card, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and matted my card panel on a black card base. 


Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get inspired to create. Come back again soon for more inspiration and ideas! Happy Crafting!
