Coming soon! - You Lift Me Up | Jeannie Lieu

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today a fun new card with one of the newer Gerda Steiner Designs stamp set named You Lift Me Up. I laughed when I first saw this card and thought it was such a fun one. How many of us have said the phrase "when pigs fly"? I know I have.

This is one of the smaller stamp sets and if you follow me, you know that I love Gerda's smaller sets because you really can do so much with them and I usually utilize all the images and sentiments. 

For this particular card, I kept it really simple stamping out the pig and the balloon. I wanted a fun background but not too simple, and I achieved that by masking. I used a bunch of rectangular dies and masking paper combined with distress inks to color up the background. I haven't tried this technique before but I think it turned out to be pretty fun, don't you think? 

I have a couple of other ideas for this set so I hope you enjoyed today's card and I'll be back with more soon!

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