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!
