Today’s card is a clean and simple, “one-layer” card. I began by stamping the adorable gnome, from the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog, in Memento Black Ink. I stamped him directly on a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I used Stampin’ Blends for coloring: Orchid Oasis for his pants, Crumb Cake for his shirt and shoes, Mint Macaron and Soft Sea Foam for his hat and mittens, Ivory for his face, and Basic Black for his eyes.
To avoid going outside the lines in small spaces, I touch the tip of the brush end close to the line, and let it spread closer. You will get some bleeding through the card front, so do the coloring with the card base open.
Next, using the Stamparatus for placement, I stamped the flowers from the Wonderful World Stamp Set in Orchid Oasis Ink, one of the new, 2022-2024 In Colors. This stamp set comes with Wonderful World Designer Paper, and I used one of the patterns to photograph my card. Not only is it fabulous, but it’s a FREE Sale-a-bration item with a $100.00 order!
I’ve been asked the name of this flower, so if you’re reading this, you’ll now find out it’s a German Cornflower. The partially hidden flower on the front of the stamp set is an English Rose, and the bottom flower is a French Iris. This info was provided by Stampin’ Up in a video I was able to view as a Demonstrator, one of the many perks. Would you like to be a Demonstrator? I’d love for you to join my team. Click Here.
To give some ground to the scene, I stamped three patches of grass in Garden Green. This stamp is in the Easter Friends Stamp Set, still available in the Last Chance Products sale, but only until June 30th. You can click on the Last Chance button below to see all of the Last Chance Products.
At the bottom of the card, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black Ink. “Your kindness does not go unnoticed” is from the Kindest Gnomes Stamp Set, showing the seasonal versatility of the set. Get ready to order July 1st!
I was inspired by the Paper Players.
