Gnomes! Gnomes!

Oh my goodness!! For some reason, I HAD to get those gnomes stamp set with coordinating thin-cuts from Close to my Heart when they were released! Seem like it’s a trend now, LOL. Yesterday I was able to get into the studio and get creative for a bit. I created four thank you cards using the Gnomes Matters and Time to Celebrate (S2005 – retired) I kept the card sketch simple as I CASED it from this sketch.

I started off with a White Daisy card base from a Card & Envelope Bundle that CTMH used to have in the back days, matted it off with Sapphire cardstock, then topped it with White Daisy cardstock stitched frame using the Stitched Rectangle Frames Z4260.

I stamped “Thank You” in archival black ink-pad and cut it out with a label die-cut (brand unknown). I attached it to the White Daisy mat with double side sticky tape with a strip of Silver Shimmer Tape.

I stamped the gnomes using the Archival Black ink-pad and used the TriBlends Markers in various of colors to color the gnomes. Colors: Pale Pink, Purple, Fair Skin, Lavender, Brown Grey, Orange, True Blue, Dark Red, Light Green, True Black, Ice Grey and Blender. You can find those colors at this link. I attached the gnome body to the white daisy mat using the 3D foam tape.

I order all of my Close to my Heart (CTMH) products from my consultant, Shannon Baker – StampinBuds. Here is her website.

Here is the final photo of the 4 cards.
