Gnoming me... Gnoming you......

Hi There Lovelies...

Happy Sunday!

Hope you're all excited seeing these wonderful new images from the epic new release at Stamping Bella..  today I'm sharing my Gnome makes!!

My first card is using 'Gnome on a Swing' -  named for obvious reasons!!  LOL!  This little guy is swinging away, enjoying life - wouldn't we all love to do that one sunny afternoon? I wanted to fussy cut the image....  and yes.....  I managed to fussy cut the swing ropes... get me!!  Then a lovely friend inspired me to create a shaker - and here's the result... 

Card Info:
Image and Sentiment - Stamping Bella Gnome on a Swing (available 6 March), Die - Your Next Stamp Stitched Scalloped Rectangle, Colouring - Copics - Gnome BG53/57, T0/1/3/5, N0/1/3, Leaves G07/14, Caterpillar W0/1/3, Clouds sponged with Distress Inks, Sequins

I also stamped a second gnome, and fussy cut his nose and feet from the image(ouch!) 3D-ing them up to give the card depth. 


My second card today is using 'The Gnome and The Butterfly' - don't you just love these little characters???  This one is having a little chat to his friend the butterfly, shouting to be heard over the noise of the sequins rattling!  Of course, the butterfly deserved lots of glitter... I do wish you could see it in real life..  photographs never do glitter justice, and when I took these photos, the light was poor too.

Card Info:
Image and Sentiment - Stamping Bella The Gnome and The Butterfly (available 6 March), MFT Square Peek-a-Boo die, Paper - Doodlebug Designs, Colouring - Copics - Butterfly - V000/01/15/20 RV52/55 Gnome - Skin E000/00 Hat - G07/14 Coat - B23/26/28 Beard T0/1

I also stamped and cut an extra wing - so I could 3D it - making the butterfly look like it's actually perched on the card...

I'll be back tomorrow with yet more fabulousness from Stamping Bella..  I think we're all going to be poised over the Stamping Bella website waiting to get our orders in on Tuesday!!

Happy Crafting...
