Gnome Birthday Wishes



This card is for a good friend that I met online and have 
been lucky enough to meet up with a a Stamping 
Convention.  Gnome and front sentiment are from
Technique Junkies, die cuts by Lawn Fawn and Stampin Up, 
papers from Stampin Up, and inside sentiment by IO. 
I added Wink of Stella to the hat, and added Sakura gel pen
 and white gel pen accents to the patterned paper.   I added
 a wobble element to the gnome for fun.

Snippet card



I got a new die from Simon Says stamp, Circle of Leaves, and can see
so many ways to use it. I had to play with it right away but am just now
posting the cards I made.  I went to my container of backgrounds
for these cards.

JDS-Free Merry Christmas and Candy Cane

 It's mid month at the monthly challenge at Jan's Digi Stamps.


 I thought this free Merry Christmas would be perfect for a
shaker card.  I added the Holly from Mrs. Teddy Bear.  I cut 5 layers 
of my  frame versus using foam tape-I think this gives a nicer
 look even  though it is more time consuming.  Sequins 
from my stash.

Pumpkin Pie

It's a new month so time for new releases and a new monthly
challenge at Jan's Digi Stamps.

I had so much fun making this card.  I used the new set
Pumpkin Pie, ( part of the Fall sale) papers by Stampin Up.  
This was the easiest fun  fold I have ever made. I cut two colored 
panels 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches.  White card stock is 4 by 11 1/2 inches 
and scored at2" and 6 1/2 ", fold and set closed on the back panel,  
glue the back panel then fold and put glue on the smallest panel, 
keeping it closed and set the front panel on top to line up with
the back panel.  Design your card either vertical or horizontal.
That's it-so easy!
