To Gnome You is to Love You!

  I duplicated the baby gnome digital stamp  from Pink Cat Studio for this card. I wanted one gnome to stand out from the rest because the inside sentiment reads, “You’re One of a Kind”. The orange gnome is also the only one covered with Glossy Accents so he is nice and shiny.

This is an older version of the card above. You can tell that I colored this one before I got my Copic Markers! Stamp markers just don’t blend very well.

This is the Lulibell & Friends digital stamp from Pink Cat Studio. I sponged the clouds on with a Stampin’ Up Sponge Dauber and Tempting Turquoise ink. I made the grass by simply cutting little strips on the top of the paper with a pair of scissors. I actually impressed myself with my cloud making abilities. (LOL)

These two are dear friends. And they are friends with deer too! I used the same sponging technique as above to make the clouds and I used Smooch Spritz Vanilla Shimmer to give the whole background a bit of sparkle!

These cards are some of the few cards I have made recently using Prisma Color pencils. I like the translucent quality the pencils gave the colors in this images but. I was painfully reminded that blending the pencils with gamsol and paper stubs really makes my hand cramp up! (Years ago I had surgery on a tendon in my thumb and my right hand is arthritic at times because of it.)

This card is my favorite of the bunch. No matter how much I try, I can’t seem to move away from clean and simple cards. I craft like I live my life; straight forward and without a lot of fluff. However, I do like a little bit of bling now and again so I added some little pearls to every other heart.

Paper crafting is my Yoga. It takes my mind off any stress that I might have at the time. My daughter loves to get involved in my projects too and it is a great way to connect with her. Sixteen years ago I began scrapbooking but, my new true love is card making!
