Birthday Gnomes Card with Maria

Hello! Maria Russell here on the blog with you. I hope you all had a great week. Happy Saturday! My Canon camera finally gave up on me so while I am waiting for the replacement (it takes 3 to 4 weeks to get to me now since I am overseas), I will be sharing some projects on the blog with you instead of the YT channel.

For my card today, I used a LOT of products from the shop. I am showcasing the adorable Make A Wish stamp set, Just For You stamp set, Create with Trinity stamp set. The dies I used for this card are the Stitched Card Panels and Windows with the Serious Celebration die set.

I started by using the biggest die from the Stitched Card Panels & Windows die set to die cut some Bristol smooth white card stock. I ink-blended this panel with some distress oxide inks with the Trinity Blending Buddy brushes and used my paintbrush and to flick some water on this panel for added texture. I picked the excess water with some paper towel.

I die-cut some Neenah solar white card stock using the windows panel die. I foam-mounted this piece on the ink-blended background for added dimension.

I stamped and colored the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and used my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers to color the images in. Since I didn’t get the coordinating dies, I used my precision snips to fussy-cut the images. I foam mounted them onto the window panel for added dimension.

I love coloring my images with bright colors!

For added texture, I die-cut the stars from the Serious Celebration die set and adhered them on the card with some liquid glue. I adhered the colored panel on an 8 1/2 by 7 inches slimline card base. Here’s a closer look:

To finish my design I stamped the sentiment from the Create with Trinity stamp set and Just For You stamp set.

I hope you like my card today. The supplies I use are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
