Hello! I'm Dee from deesdesigns and I'm so excited to be a guest designer for Gerda Steiner Designs this month. Today I'm sharing a couple of creations using the Pumpkin Mouse stamp set. For those that may not know me, I prefer to make A7 size cards so the scale of my designs may be a bit different than you are used to.
I started out by stamping the pumpkin row on to some Neenah cardstock and colored the image with copic markers. After coloring the image I felt it was missing something so I looked over and saw the little mouse all colored up just waiting to be used. I embellished the card with a fall leaf diecut and framed the entire panel with gold foil cardstock. I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark ink, sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set the sentiment to coordinate with the gold foil frame.
When I'm looking for inspiration, I'll often grab a piece of patterned paper and pull colors of cardstock that coordinate with the paper. For today's card, I pulled 5 different fall shades. I know it is difficult to tell but there are two different shades of orange 😀
I stamped the sentiment on to the yellow panel with VersaFine Claire ink. Using a t-square ruler I lined up the panel on a piece of text paper to ensure everything would be square when adding the remaining rows. Between each of the rows of colored cardstock, I added thin strips of gold foil cardstock. There is something magical about using gold foil on fall-themed cards!
I hope I've inspired you to check out this adorable stamp set. I can't wait to see your creations.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
