Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with one of Gerda Steiner Designs’ newer release items with the amazing stamp set named, Pumpkin Bear. This is a smaller stamp set, but oh so adorable!
Lately, I've been really into scene cards and this was totally perfect for it. When I saw it, I felt all the autumn vibes with the red, orange, and yellows! Since this is a smaller set, I pulled an additional stamp set to help me out. Fall in Love is the perfect compliment to this card because I wanted to add a tree to the scene.
I went ahead and stamped out all the images from the set. I did minimal masking but I wanted the little bear to be in a pumpkin patch, where he decided on a pumpkin, so I added pumpkins everywhere. Once I colored in all the images, I really needed to set the scene by creating the ground. My coloring was very minimal, even though it looks like I spent a lot of time creating it. If you look closely, I used a dotting method with a lot of different colors. I kept the darker colors right under where images needed to be grounded (tree, pumpkins, bear) and worked my way out.
To finish off the sentiment, I stamped one of the ones from the set and added the little leaves around it. It really finished off the card and filled in the white space.
I love how this card turned out and am just in love with the colors and autumn vibes.
Thanks for stopping by! Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!
