It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Crafty Gnome using Let’s Color – TLF028 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Created With Love – FFL012 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Crafting is always so much fun and I love to colour up new stamps all the time! This month’s Gnome Mania at High Hopes Rubber Stamps has a lot of fun new gnome stamps to choose from.
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 5.5″. I cut the background paper from Photo-Play – Crafting With My Gnomies Paper Pack to be the same size and applied this directly to the base card using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Twisted Citron was used to ink around all of the edges. Using my Cuttlebug and dies from My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then stamped the image onto it using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. My Creative Time – Stitched Zig Zag Tie die was used to die cut Hammermill – Premium Colour cardstock and the sentiment was stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the main image with Copic markers and then Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Twisted Citron was used to go around the edges of both die cuts. The image and sentiment were both popped up onto the background using U-Line double-sided tape. Finally, I ran small pieces of paper through my Xyron Create a Sticker from Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones paper pack and then through my Cuttlebug using My Creative Time – Stitched Zig Zag Ties die cuts. I placed the hearts onto the card to finish it off.
