Pop a Squat

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!

Paper: Soft Sky, Early Espresso, So Saffron (SU!), Ripe Avocado, white (PTI), Stella Rose – Gertie (My Mind’s Eye).
