Oh Gnome!

Oh, Gnome……. Is it snowing? This poor little gnome is being snowed on just when he thought winter was over (he lives in Texas). This card was initially inspired by the current Fusion card challenge. However, by the time I finished, it fulfills the challenges for both the LawnFawnatics challenge and the Double Trouble Paper Crafting challenge. The background paper has the outlines of the door and cabinet insets similar to the Fusion Challenge background. Clearly, the gingham hearts and gnome fit right in, along with the banners. The center flag was fashioned after the “brick” that states, “you are so loved.” The card is embellished with snowflakes, Spectrum Noir glitter pen, glossy accents, and a little embossing with Emerald Creek’s Black Cherry embossing powder and Versamark Onxy Black ink.

Pastel Skies

Good evening, crafters! MFT has a sketch challenge that was too fun to pass up! I used their radiating rays stencil along with Tim Holt’s Antique Linen, Tattered Rose and Dusty Concord for the background. BB Adorable Elephants with some simple copic coloring and glossy accents finished the card.

Keep smiling!

Hearts Abound

Welcome, Weekend Crafters!!! I have for you today a little girl and her doll taking a stroll through the park. I’m not sure what I will use this card for, perhaps Mother’s Day? This card was inspired by the lovely people over at Double Trouble Paper Crafting along with Allsorts Challenge.. Momenta’s Intricate Heart Tree was used to create my background. Craftin’ Desert Diva’s “Happy Girls” stamp set provided my image. She was stamped with Momento brown ink and colored with Copic markers. I paper pieced the carriage using wicker card stock along with Prismacolor pencils to add some dimension. I added some small embellishments with a red gel pen (the polka dots), White Nuvo drops (look carefully, she is wearing a pear bracelet), Irrredescent heart sequins (the wheels of the carriage), and a red heart (center of the hairbow).

Have a fantastic evening, everyone!

A Friend Loves

Good Morning, crafters! It’s a pastel heart sort of morning. I cannot help but think of this cute Rosie and Bernie stamp by Stamping Bella anytime I think of hearts of Valentines Day. I stamped the image with Versafine Onxy Black Ink on some Strathmore colored pencil 80lb paper. The sentiment is from a retired MayMayMade It set and stamped with Versafine Ink as well. Rosie and Bernie were colored with BlackWidow pencils. A yellow gel pen added the polka dots to the dress. Nuvo drops in rhubarb crumble were used for the heart ears. A little bit of Spectrum Noir clear was used on Bernie’s horn and hooves along with some white metallic watercolor for his mane. The background is done with pencil shavings.
