Hanging with my gnomies!

Today I used a stamp set from MFT that I have used before, but I love it so much. Its a set called “Hanging with my gnomies”. Here’s the card:

I created the background using some die cuts from Elizabeth Craft Designs and also ink blended the sky using a cloud stencil from MFT.

I stamped the images of the gnomes and ladybugs and colored them using copic markers. I then cut them out using the coordinating dies.

I stamped the sentiment and then layered the scene and glued it all together. I framed the panel with some black cardstock and adhered it to a white card base.

Here is a list of some of the supplies I used for this card:

Good start to the day

I have a birthday coming up, a big birthday! Its tomorrow. This morning there were some flowers delivered to me from one of my best friends who I don’t get to see much anymore since we moved away. All of my close friends live far away. Its hard at times. Anyway, the flowers are beautiful. My friend chose my favorite colors and it was a wonderful start to the day.

Then one of my brothers, who lives in Scotland, messaged me to set up a time to video chat tomorrow. So, I’m looking forward to that.

Every few days lately, people line our neighborhood streets with their children and a parade of cars goes by. The cars are decorated by the local teachers and they are able to wave to their students as they drive by. Its so heartwarming.

So, onto a card! This one took a while. Mostly because when I stamped the sentiment at the end, I smeared the ink. So I had to try to remove the stamped images to put onto another background. I did okay until I got the the house and then I ripped it. So I had to redo the house completely. It all turned out ok in the end and I love it.

For this card I used the stamp set “Hanging with my gnomies” from My Favorite Things. I love this stamp set, there are so many images and so many possiblities with it. So I chose the image of the house, the lady gnome and the gnome holding flowers. I also used a couple of the lady bug images. I stamped those images on to Neenah Classic Crest Solar white 80lb cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I then colored them with copic and spectrum noir alchohol markers.

For the background I used a stencil from Simon Says Stamp for the clouds and then die cut some green cardstock for the grass with Honey Bee grass edge die. I then stamped the sentiment “To gnome you is to love you”. I then glued everything onto the card using art glitter glue. I framed the panel with some light blue cardstock and adhered it to an A2 size card base.

Despite the trouble I had, it was worth the effort and I think it turned out so cute!

A quick update on our baby birds….they are growing SO fast! All three look very healthy.

I hope you are all well. See you next time!
