Last month, we had another “Book-a-thon” with Stampin’ Up!. Any demonstrators who participated received a pack of brights brads, and because we reached the booking goal, we also got stamp sets from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I was really excited, because one of the sets was “Gnome Sweet Gnome.” I watched Gnomeo & Juliet with Rachel one night, and it was so cute. When I saw the stamp set, I really wanted it, because one of the gnomes looked a lot like Gnomeo.

I wanted to do a valentine, so I used the hearts framelits, then just added the gnomes and other images. Inside, I used a stamp from “Full of Life.” It says, “Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale.” It seemed to fit this card really well. I needed a little glimmer for the belt buckle and flowers, so I used Dazzling Details with Daffodil Delight and Blushing Bride classic ink refills. I love making my own colored details. It’s always ready to go, and so simple to do.
I got some great ideas from Rachel about some other projects; she’s my gnome expert. So tomorrow, after I finish up a little project for Mike, I’ll be in Gnomeland!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day.
