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

February 26, 2018

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

I, more or less, made the same noises when I saw her post a sneak of this cutie pie on her Instagram awhile back. It's adorable and I'm so excited that she created a full set with them.

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

I chose to use Kraft cardstock for my background so I use colored pencils. I stamped the two lettuce images onto the background in no particular pattern using white pigment ink. From experience, I learned to use lighter colors for the edges of an image so there's more of a contrast of colors against the background. It does make the lettuce pop, doesn't it?

I fussy cut the main guinea pig image that I loved so much from the sneak peek and wanted him to stand on the sentiment, which I heat embossed in white on a piece of vellum. I chose to add vellum because I have such a busy background, I didn't want him to get lost in front of it. It helps spotlight him so your eyes first go to him.

Here's my finished card.


I hope you like it as much as I do. I adore this set! Check out the new release, Wheek Wheek Wheek and Easter Friends. I'll be back at the end of the week to share a card using Easter Friends so come back soon!

Hello! It's Karla back today with a pretty Christmas card featuring the super cute Santa Owl digi stamp from the Gerda Steiner Designs Shop.
