I Don’t Bite….Usually!!

Today I’m sharing¬† Vampire Gnome (KLM Digital Designs) image from the October release. This adorable little Gnome comes with 5 different sentiments. Two of them, I have used here. The others are “2020 Sucks”, “Bats About You” and “Don’t Let These Times Drain You”. I love this little gnome and with these fun sentiments, there are so many different cards that you can make.

I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers.  I added some Clear РWink of Stella to the stars, moon and coloured squares on his hat and gown. The sentiments were printed out on orange cardstock. I cut them and then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink РSpiced Marmalade.

For the oval, I used Echo Park – I Love Halloween paper and die cut using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies. I also, used this paper on the top and bottom of my card. For the centre background, I used To Every Season – Stampin’ Up paper. I used some double-sided tape to join the top paper with stars to the haunted house background. Then I cut the background to 5.25″ x 4″ and inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. I also used the same ink to go around the edges of the oval.

To assemble the card, I began with an orange card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ by using a pre-cut card by The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours. The edges were all inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. The background was adhered to the base using double-sided tape. The image, sentiments and oval were both popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Finally, some Recollections Bling Stickers were added as embellishments to finish off the card.
