Gnome for Christmas

  Good Saturday morning on this beautiful fall morning.  We are getting ready to go on a trail ride in our side by side to see some beautiful fall colors.  

This morning it is my turn on the Techniques blog, as guest designer, to post to share a couple of cute/pretty holiday cards that I designed with the new October fall release.  

 Using one of the cute gnomes from Gnome for Christmas, I made a Christmas card using a library card that I had in my stash, colored the gnome with copic markers fussy cut him out and popped him up on a couple of pretty design papers for the holidays.  my sentiment came from the same set and I thought that it was fitting for this library card.  I distressed the library card a bit with some antique linen distress ink and a pair of scissors.  I knew I saved the library cards for a reason.  

My next card 

was made using Wise Men  which is a beautiful stand alone stamp, and using the Cloud Edger Stencil  I made the backgound with three various colors of distress oxide inks using my blending brushes. I watched a quick from Pat Huntoons blog on some tips in using this beautiful stencil.
