Happy Birthday Gnomie!!!!

Hey everyone, Britney here! I am so excited to be on the Pawsome Stamps blog today featuring the Gnomies stamp set. 

I always like to start with my background first and I build up from there. I cut some background panels with stitched rectangle dies out of solid cardstock, patterned paper, and plain white cardstock. I stenciled on the grass and clouds of background on the plain white panel. I wanted to create depth without creating a lot of bulk. I embossed a sentiment on a scrap of the background cardstock. 

Stamping an image and sentiment on the inside finishes the card off nicely. It is easier to stamp an image and/or sentiment on the inside of the card before adhering the card panel to the base. The bulk of the foam tape can make it difficult to get a good impression using a Misti Stamping tool. I stamped the inside of the card with an image from the stamp set and a sentiment from the Gnomies and Macarons stamp sets.

I used the Misti Stamping Tool and a Copic-friendly ink to stamp images onto a piece of smooth, white cardstock. Use your favorite color medium to color in the images. I prefer Copics usually. You can fussy cut the images or use the coordinating dies. I laid out my images to get perfect placement and popped them up using foam tape. I finished off my images using white gel pen to add some accents.

I finished off my images using some Nuvo Drops on the glass. I love adding a lot of final details to a card to give it a little something extra. I hope you enjoyed today's card. Have a wonderful day and make sure to check out all the goodies in the Pawsome Stamps shop
