Hand Picked For You-Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb


Hello and happy Sunday! This month Deb and I thought it would be fun to create gnome cards, since they are so popular right now. I created my card by partially stenciling the front of my white A2 white card using Stampin' Up's daffodil delight ink and a fun honeycomb stencil from TCW. I then stamped the sentiment from the Stampendous True Friends stamp set using Versafine onyx black ink so I could get a nice crisp impression. On some Copic-friendly white cardstock I stamped the gnome and butterfly from the Inkadinkado Garden Gnome stamp set, colored them with my alcohol markers, and fussy cut them out. I attached them to my card using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I finished off my card by adding some white gel pen details the images. I'm not very good at clean and simple cards but this was was so easy and fun to create! 
So, my small town in Southeast Missouri has recently had a boom in coffee shops, some commercial and some small, locally owned. I popped in to a little place here called Mana-Tea and happened upon the most amazing Vietnamese coffee I've ever had! So rich, creamy, and delicious. Now be sure to pop on over to Debra's blog and see how she was inspired by our gnome challenge!

Delightfully fun summertime gnomie card.

Goodness, do I hear you regarding struggling with CAS designs. They are the polar opposite to my natural paper crafting style, but it can be fun nevertheless to dip my toes in the CAS pool every now and then as I find pushing ourselves outside of our comfort zone can often inject a fresh hit of creativity into our work (of all styles).
