Hey everyone! Welcome to Simon Says Stamp Lucky To Know You release blog hop! Today is day #2 of the hop.
If you have come from Bibi Cameron‘s blog, welcome! If this is your first stop, then don’t worry, I will list all the designers of this hop towards the end of this post for you to hop and get inspired. I am so excited to share my project with you using one of the newly released stamp set. The stamp set I used and my most favourite in the release is called Spring Gnomes. I love gnomes and there are three of them in this set which are very adorable. I used all of them to make this card.
I could not choose one gnome image to stamp and colour. Hence I used all the three gnomes. I stamped them on masking paper and cut them out to make masks. Then I stamped the she gnomes first, masked her and stamped the other two gnomes besides the she gnome. I masked both of them too to sponge the cloud background.
For the background, I used Simon’s Clouds for Days. This stencil was sitting on my desk and hence I used it. I sponged pastel shades of yellow, orange and pink distress inks. They are Spun Sugar, Dried Marigold and Squeezed Lemonade. Love the pastel coloured clouds on the background.
I removed the masks and coloured the gnomes using copic markers. I added highlights to the images using white gel pen. Then I die cut the panel using Simon’s Postage Stamp Edge die. I used the largest die in the set. I stamped the sentiment from the Spring Gnomes stamp set on top of the gnome trio images in black. Using the solid heart stamp from the stamp set, I stamped some pink heart using Simon’s Teeny Bikini dye ink and added highlights to them using white gel pen as well.
This panel is adhered on white card base using foam adhesive and a few Moonshine sequins scattered around to finish the card. How adorable are these gnomes? The Spring Gnomes stamp set also has coordinating dies. I do not have the dies yet hence I used masking technique to stamp the three gnomes. If I had the dies with me, I would have used them to die cut each of the gnomes and popped them using foam adhesives instead. Just wanted to let you know that is an option if you have the dies. Here are some more photos of the card.
