Hello! Been a while, hasn’t it? I took a little break from blogging the last few days because my allergies were on the rampage. Blech! But I’m back and crafting again. So the first set I grabbed was the new My Little Friend from TSG. I used three stamps from the set: an extra cute gnome home, a sitting gnome and the hilarious sentiment “Pop a squat and stay awhile.”
I stamped the gnome and the home on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers before trimming. I layered the gnome on the rooftop using foam dimensionals. I added just a touch of Ranger Glossy Accents to the images and colored the mushroom spots with a Copic Spica AtYou glitter pen. Next I diecut a Lacey Circle and a Circle using Nestabilities and adhered together. I outlined the edge of the circle with Bisque Liquid Pearls and once dry added the main image using dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment on So Saffron cardstock and trimmed the ends with my scissors to create a little banner. I used my fingers to add a bit of arch to the banner and adhered in place before adding a couple of brads and an acetate flower.
A little designer paper and a bit of dyed seam binding finished my card. And did you notice? No stitching at all on this card… gasp. Hee hee hee!
