Happy Birthday to My Favorite Gnomie – My Favorite Things

Hi everyone! These little gnomies are ready to party! How about you?! This month Cloud9 Crafts is celebrating its 5th anniversary. So keep an eye out for the festivities later on this month.

Before I’m diving into the cardmaking process, I want to mention we have a challenge running over at Cloud9 Crafts. The theme of this month is “Birthday”. Head over to Instagram to see how you can participate and be eligible to win a prize!

First I stamped the gnomes from Happy Birthday to My Favorite Gnomie on Perfect Colouring paper and colored them with Copic markers:

  • Orange: YR04, YR21, YR20, YR000
  • Purple: V17, V15, V12, V000
  • Pink: RV14, RV13, RV11, RV000
  • Beard: E000, W2, W0
  • Skin: E13, E11, E00
  • Cake: E53, E51, E50

After coloring, I fussy die cut the image with Cutter Bee scissors.

On the background panel, I stamped the Happy with Distress Oxide inks: Picked Raspberry, Shaded Lilac, Dried Marigold, Kitsch Flamingo, and Dusty Concord. Around the sentiment I also stamped Delicate Foliage with Milled Lavender to fill up the white space a bit. After I was done with all the stamping, I trimmed the panel with a Watercolor Rectangle die.

On the cardbase I adhered pattern paper from the Orange Sherbet pack. When picking the colors for the card, I had this pattern paper in mind. This ensures ending up with a cohesive look.

I hope you like this card, and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
