Gnome One Else

Hey! Long time no see!

I have been busy as a bee over here, getting the house ready to put up for sale, finishing the school year, and chasing the toddler! Card making for the fun of it has sadly been put on the back burner for awhile, until I get a bit more free time. I am sure you can relate. I did have a fantastic weekend down in Berlin with my crafty gals. Time away to sit and craft? YES, please! I made up this card while I was down there, using the You Gnome Me set from My Favorite Things.

I started by stamping the gnome, and masking him off. I then stamped the sentiment, and removed the mask. I then lined up the die using a negative piece, and ran it through partially, trimming away the excess on both sides of him. I then took my colored pencils, and Gamsol, and colored him in.

I used a bit of Avery Elle's Everyday Collection, and adhered a piece to a white card base. I then adhered the gnome piece with foam tape, finishing it with enamel dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today! I hope you have a great rest of the week.
