Some eagle eyed viewers may have noticed from my post on Wednesday that I have joined the Seven Hills Crafts design team. I’m excited to join Tara and the other fantastic DT members! My posts will be scheduled every Wednesday so keep a lookout. 🙂
This week my first post featured the MFT You Gnome Me and Spotlight Sentiments sets. I have had the Gnome set for a while, in fact purchasing it because I have some friends who love their gnomes with the intention that every Christmas, Birthday and Anniversary card will feature these little guys. I just love their little ears and faces!
I stamped this little guy out using some MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and coloured him in using my Copic markers. I wanted to avoid a Christmassy vibe so I chose some BG markers to partner the Rs. I then cut him out with the coordinating dies.
I needed a bold background for him to stand against so I chose the MFT Spotlight Sentiments set. I stamped it repeatedly on a white card panel in a gradient pattern using the Merman, Peacock, Tea Dye and Walnut inks from the Lawn Fawn Gazebo, Candy Store and Tea Party Ink Cubes. Once dry, I die cut it using the largest frame from the Wonky Stitches Elle-ments dies and adhered some teal ribbon from my stash to break up the border between the brown and teals.
With a little bit of foam tape on the back of the little gnome I popped him up on the front panel, which I then adhered to an A2 side folding kraft card base. I felt like it needed a little something else so I stamped an additional sentiment from the MFT Things With Wings stamp set, coloured with the same red Copic markers and made into a banner. That and a few clear sequins finishes it off nicely, I think.
Look out every Wednesday for my DT posts!
Thanks for reading.
