Good Things To Come!!


Sharing a card I made today using KLM Digital Designs – Jumping Gnome for the main image and Thumbs Up Gnome for the sentiment from the new September release.

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I die-cut the image using Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Noble Dies – Double Pierced Squares – Set B. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. I printed out the black and white image again onto regular photocopy paper and used by Brother Scan and Cut to die cut the image to use as a mask. I created the grass background and then attached the mask to the coloured image. A combination of Avery Elle – Pierced Clouds Die (D-05-01) which I created stencils from and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salty Ocean and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass were used to create the clouds in the sky. I accidentally used too much ink for the one cloud, so I decided to cover it up by creating a few trees in the background.

For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock and cut it and scored it to be 5.5″ x 5.5″.  Using double-sided tape, I attached the coloured image to some black cardstock and then used my trimmer to create a small border. I then added double-sided tape to the back of the black cardstock and adhered it directly to the base to finish off my card.
