Simon Says Stamp Gnome on a Swing

Hi Stamping friends – welcome back.  Over the holidays I was surfing the Simon Says Stamp site and I came upon this adorable Simon Says Stamp Gnome on a Swing stamp set by StampingBella.  Well, I had to have this little guy he was too cute to pass up.  So yesterday, while the sun was beaming in my studio window, the corgis (and my husband) where snoring in front of the t.v. upstairs, I got out my Copic Markers for a little coloring fun.

Card Details for the Simon Says Stamp – Gnome on a Swing Card:

Start by die cutting a piece of Hammermill White cardstock with the Wonky Rectangles dies (middle one), and the mat from a piece of Stampin Up Bermuda Bay cardstock.  These dies not only cut the outside edge for you – for perfect layering every time! –  they add the fun “wonky” stitched lines to each piece as well.  There is also a smaller one and a sentiment in the set.

Next, place the art piece into the Misti stamping Tool and stamp the image in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

Next , use Copic Markers to color the image.

Isn’t that little caterpillar just the cutest?  haha.

Add Additional leaves for a 3D Effect:

Stamp the image a couple more times on scrap paper.  Color the leaves sand cut them out.  Glue them over the existing leaves for a 3-D effect.

Adhere the die cut mat piece to a Hammermill A2 White card base and them foam mount the art piece to the center.  I used Gina K Connect Glue to attach the cut out leaves and branches before embellishing with a few Caribbean Sunset Sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping in today
