To Gnome You is to Love You

Hi All! I have a sweet little card to share with you today. It is inspired by this gem of a scrapbook page designed by Erica Cerwin. She must be very flattered as I've seen this page used as inspiration on a couple of other blogs. What can we say...she's got a great eye!


I was drawn to the sweet, simple design that she chose to use. And, I love that she paired these two little cuties with the Everyda
y Enchantment DSP. They work so perfectly together.

Since I was scaling the design down to a card, I chose to work with her focal image. The gnomes are colored using my stamp pads and Blender Pens. I layered in some Nesties and added a swirled metal clip from my Hodgepodge Hardware stash. The Lucky Limeade and the Calypso Coral Organdy Ribbon are from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. They come with a Brad Pack that coordinates perfectly with the Everyday Enchantment DSP. The heart was cut with my Heart Framelits.

It's Sale-A-Bration time at Stampin' Up, so if you're looking to place an order, now's the time. Through March 31st, every time you spend $50, you get a FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. The Everyday Enchantment DSP and the Ribbon/Brad Pack are two of the great choices that you have. Click on my Order button to see a catalog or to place an order. Email is always an option too.

We've watched The Amazing Race for years and I can't help but think of it when I see these gnomes. I can't wait to make a more traditional colored one! Hope you think they are as cute as I do. Thanks for stopping by!
