Gnome so thankful


A very quick post from me today because I'm looking after a poorly hubby again.  This is my second card from the latest Whimsy Stamps release, and I'm thrilled that there are more gnomes, and I've used the Gnome So Thankful stamp set.  Nobody does gnomies quite like Whimsy Stamps does, just saying.

I created a background using distress oxides in Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio then added in some flicks of grass with a copic marker.  I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the gnome and apple barrel with copic markers, using the following colours:

Reds: R59, 46, 24, 14 (and a touch of YG03 for the apples)
Skin: E04, 11, 000
Beard: BV31, E41, E40
Barrel@ E25, 23, 21; C5, 3, 1, 0

I finished off with a sentiment from the Simple Sentiment Strips Stamps and Simple Sentiment Strips Dies

Have a blast


It's all about aliens and UFO's for this new Whimsy Stamps release, though there are some adorable gnomes that were also released (more on those tomorrow!)

I started this card off with the fab background paper from the Slimline Lost in Space paper pack. I then inked up a panel of cardstock with black distress oxide ink and cut out a shape with the new Revealers 2 die set so the moon would just be peeking out.  I adhered this to the background with foam tape.

I die cut the new UFO Die Set from mirror card as well as white card and used copic markers to add colour.  I coloured a piece of vellum with yellow copics and cut out the "beam" also with the UFO Die Set, and finished off with some green aliens and tiny holographic star confetti and a sentiment from the Simple Sentiment Strips Clear Stamps and co-ordinating Die Set
