Hello crafty peeps!
Crystal here with an adorable card using Heffy Doodle’s Gnome Matter What stamp set.
How cute are these gnomes!?!
I just adore them! I inked them up along with a bunch of other images from this set using Memento tuxedo black ink and then colored them in using the following Copic markers: Y06, Y35, YG11, YG23, RV000, RV00, RV14, RV21, RV29, E000, E00, E11, N0, N1, N2, N5, N8, B000, B00, B02.
To build my scene I die cut a piece of white card stock using the Memory Box Wrapped Scalloped die and then I blended a little Tumbled Glass distress ink for my sky. I then cut a strip of patterned paper for my ‘ground’ from the Echo Park Spring Fling paper pad and also die cut the grass from the same paper pad. I adhered the grass to the back of the ‘ground’ paper and then adhered just the bottom portion of the combined papers to the scene so that I could be free to place things in amongst the grass, like the cute mushroom. I adhered all the images to create my scene and then popped up the focal panel on a white card base. To finish off the front of the card, I stamped my sentiment using my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. Now, just a little tip… I should have stamped the sentiment before I popped up the focal panel, but because I used the Stamp Platform I was able to stamp the sentiment a few times to get the crisp sentiment I wanted.
The sentiment on the front of the card just keeps you hanging so I just HAD to add to the inside of the card. I combined the patterned papers again to continue the design on the inside of the card. I added another gnome… I colored several since I was on a roll. LOL
And then I stamped the sentiment for the inside of the card. I decided to add the little clock to this gnome’s hand to tie in the sentiment… so cute! Now, I got to thinking you could leave the card like this basically saying that the card is the recipient’s birthday gift. Or…
You could slide a gift card in there for just a little something… a quick gift idea!
Here’s a close up of the scene on the front of the card… I went a little crazy with the flowers, but couldn’t help myself! So many cute images to color in this set!
