Mix it up!

Hi there! It's Jeannie and I'm back to share a really simple card that I put together to share with you today.

I wanted to use the Christmas Puppies set but I didn't want to create anything Christmas themed. I chose to use the puppy in the present bag. This is an easy image that can be used for birthdays and that's just want I decided to to.

I used a piece of Bristol Smooth paper. I masked off part...

Flamingo!

Hey there! Today, I'm sharing a card using a new set in the Gerda Steiner Designs store, Upside Down Flamingo. This is a smaller set, but it has one large image and two large sentiments. 

This flamingo is so silly and it's peeking between the legs. I wanted to do something simple with this card since it's a large image. 

I colored the flamingo in typical pink and yellow colors. I wanted to play off...

Night time Scene with Foxes - InsideoutJeans

Hi there!

Gerda Steiner Designs is releasing two new stamp sets on August 16 (three days!) and I wanted to share a sneak peek of a project using the set. The set is super adorable and even though its name is Foxes, it has an adorable owl in it.

I definitely wanted to use the owl so I decided to to create a nighttime scene. I used black cardstock and used bright distress oxide inks. As an finishing...

Turtley Great - InsideoutJeans

Hi there! Jeannie back again with another card using the Turtley Great stamp set. There's so many things that you can do with this set. The last two cards I created focused mainly on the turtles. For this card, I wanted to include the present and the slug for a cute birthday card. 


I really love the baby turtle who is just following the really happy slug, who's slowly heading to the present. I...

Turtley Great in Black & White

Hello everyone! I'm back to share another card using Turtley Great stamp set. I can't get myself past the typical colors for turtles so I'm back with another green tint card.

To create my background, I decided I wanted to use some alcohol inks to create a pretty subtle background using greens and one yellow ink. I wanted something soft so the turtles will stand out. As with all alcohol ink...

Turtley Great!

Hi there! Jeannie here, back to share a card I created using the Turtley Great stamp set. It's such a super cute set. I love the variety of turtles in this set.  

For today's card, I decide to mimic the turtle shell in the background to create a simple card. I used a hexagon stencil, and used distress inks to create the look near the bottom right of the card panel. 


Because I didn't want to mask off...

More Than Pie - Pull Up card

Hi there!

Today I'm sharing this card using the More Than Pie stamp set that I adore! It's a cute set with bears and pies... who doesn't love that?

I had this idea in my head for awhile but when I went to the stamp set, I realized that the bear I wanted to use was actually holding the pie in his hand. I really wanted to make it so he would pop up from a window to peek at the pie with his mischievous...

On the Bookshelf - Jeannie (InsideoutJeans)

Hello there! Today, I'm back with another card using the On the Bookshelf stamp set. I'm a sucker for nerdy glasses and since I didn't use the main cat with the adorable Harry Potter-esque glasses, I had to this time.

I wanted to do a pretty simple card, so I decided to create a circular frame of the items in the stamp set. I stamped these out and created a mask for the circle of the items. I used...

On The Bookshelf - Jeannie (InsideoutJeans)

Hello all,

Today I'm sharing a card using the new set, On the Bookshelf. This set is absolutely adorable and I had to create something immediately. Of course, I automatically went to an one layer card which mimicked a bookshelf. This set has so many items that you can find on a bookshelf that the scene came together really quickly.

I decided that instead of using the bookshelf nooks provided in the...

Vrooming By (into the weekend!) - Jeannie

Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing a card using the Vrooming By clear stamp set, which has a similar digital stamp image. Personally, I prefer having an actual stamp because I don't have easy access to a printer so I was delighted to play with this cute image.

I wanted to depict how fast the dog was going on his scooter and decided to do this using the second and third generation stamping. A stamp...

Floating Floor Pop Up - Go Wild - Jeannie Lieu

Hello! Today I'm back to share this card I made using the Go Wild stamp set. Going on a safari is on my bucket list and in the meantime, making a card is almost the same thing right?



I colored all my images using Copic and Spectrum Noir markers... this part of the process was probably the longest.

The background of the scene was created with distress inks blended on Bristol Smooth paper. I also...

Unexpected card using Dachshunds - Jeannie Lieu (InsideoutJeans)

Hi there! Today, I'm focusing one image from the Dachshunds stamp set to be the main focus of the card. It's a bit unexpected since this set is mainly about the dogs and I'm using just the balloon.

I wanted to use Kraft paper for the card along with colored pencils. I used a pigment ink and full adhesive Post-its to stamp and add multiple balloons to the card. Using colored pencils, I laid down...

Have a Ball! - Jeannie Lieu (InsideoutJeans)

Hello everyone! It's been awhile since I've shared one of my cards and I really am loving this one. If you're a fan of animals, especially doggies, this Dachshunds stamp set is for you! You'll see that I used the Hoppiness stamp set as well to add a few extra elements to the card as well.

I used a grassy hills die to create a stencil. Using distress inks, I colored two layers of the grass. I...

Peeking Easter Friends - Jeannie Lieu (InsideoutJeans)

Hey there! Today I'm sharing another card using the Peeking Easter Friends. I still can't get over how cute this set is and I just want to take advantage of the animals peeking, so I used a die cut that had some borders for peeking purposes.

This worked perfectly for this set. It has three main windows and a top window for the sentiment. For this card, I had to fussy cut these images so it looked...

Peeking Easter Friends - Shaker Card | Jeannie Lieu (InsideoutJeans)

Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing my card using the newly released Peeking Easter Friends. Does this set not scream spring time!? Did you pick up this set for Easter? 

When I saw this stamp set, it reminded me of one of my favorite GSD sets, Hoppiness. Unlike the Hoppiness set (where there's a fence), I needed to create something for the animals to be peeking from so I came up with a border of...

Wheek Wheek Wheek! Release Day! - Jeannie Lieu (InsideoutJeans)

Wheek Wheek Wheek! It's Monday and the new Gerda Steiner Design's stamp sets will be released soon.

Today, I'm sharing a card I made using this stamp set. I'm loving the punny sentiments and just had to use "Lettuce...

Oh Manatee! & Zig Coloring - Jeannie Lieu (InsideoutJeans)

Hi all! I'm stopping by today to share a fun card with you. To be honest, I wasn't sure what I wanted create at first. I actually stamped all the little manatees and colored them in, not knowing. Eventually, I thought an underwater scene would be perfect for them and I ran with that idea.

I knew that I wanted the kelp to be a large part of setting the scene and I wanted to incorporate it with the...

Lucky Duck Pop Up Box with Bottom Window - InsideoutJeans (Jeannie)

Hello everyone! I had made this pop up box awhile back for fun and Gerda had asked me to make a tutorial because there were a lot of questions about how to go about doing it.
It's actually a pretty simple card, especially now since there are pop up box dies out there. I, however, did it the old fashioned way and made mine from scratch. It's actually bigger than the pop up box dies since those are...

More than Pie - Peek a Boo card - Jeannie Lieu (InsideoutJeans)

Hello everyone! It's Jeannie back again with another card using one of the newest stamp set, More than Pie. These bears are ADORABLE!

I really liked the stamp of the bear staring at the pie and the bear eating the pie. It tells a pretty simple story so I wanted to translate it into a card. More specifically, I used these two stamps in a Peek a Boo card. The idea is that when you open the card up, a...

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....

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...

Hi everyone! Jeannie here from InsideoutJeans... annnnd... is it summer yet?! This new Pool Piggies stamp set makes me want to head to the pool ASAP.

I was really excited about this set and as you can tell I had to use all of them at once, which needed a larger card size (5x7). I think it turned out really well and SURPRISE! the piggies in the ocean can float around...
