I'm finally back to stamping, after a two-week hiatus during the Holidays. I have been itching to ink the Gnome Sweet Gnome set from the Occasions mini, which I was lucky enough to get for free from SU! after taking part in the Book-a-Thon they did last December. Those gnomes are just so sweet, I was really happy to score a set for myself.
I drew inspiration from the Mojo Monday sketch and used one of the sentiments from the Effervescence set, one of the items that will be available for free during SAB. It says, "You make me glow," which is perfect with the lantern image. I was trying to decide how big a circle to punch around the sentiment and finally decided to layer those circles to make it look like a sun, which I think looks great! All of the patterned papers come from the Pocketful of Posies pack. I used the new scallop Edgelit die on the green paper at the bottom and used my snips to create a row of grass. The gnome was embossed with black powder on watercolor paper and die-cut using one of the new Framelits, then colored with inks. I added stitching using the new Island Indigo baker's twine around the pennant and added two glimmer brads. Simple, but cute. This could make a great masculine card.
Hope you like it and that it makes you look forward to Sale-a-Bration! Don't forget that the Occasions mini is now online, if you want to take a peek.
