Cuteness Overload

Simon Says Stamp has a stencil for the insanely popular Gnomes.  While I have already made some cards with the “sold out” large Gnome die, that I ordered for and stole from Sandra, this time I wanted a one-layer rather than pieced Gnome.

Using the stencil involved some extensive masking.  I may end up making my own layered stencil to avoid having to do all this masking in the future.  In the meantime, after a couple of ruined cards with some stray ink on them, I got it right.

This card is just so stinkin’ cute, that I am sure I will be making more.

I used the Swirls background die from Concord and 9th which just tucked around the Gnome perfectly.  Sequins from Lucie’s Little Things and some glittery Nuvo drops complete the card.  His nose is made with transparent pink Nuvo drops and gives perfect colour and dimension.
