"Gnome Sweet Gnome": Lawn Fawn Inspiration week

February 24, 2012

Hey there, everyone!  So- did you just love seeing all the projects with the Bright Side paper collection yesterday?  I love that Lawn Fawn has continued to grow, and are creating cute paper lines that match the fun and whimsical feel of their stamp sets!  I am also just a huge fan when a small business succeeds in this day and age!!

Today we are showcasing a new stamp set called "Gnome Sweet Gnome"...which is the epitome of Lawn Fawn!  It goes well with the critters sets, and you are going to love mixing and matching with all of your other Lawn Fawn stamps.  Of course, I chose to paper piece all the fun elements that I used on my card...with the new Bright Side papers, which were a perfect fit!  Here is what I created!
"Gnome Place Like Home" supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (smooth white) 
Paper: Lawn Fawn (Bright Side 6x6 pad: upbeat, spoonful of sugar, bright-eyed, happy thoughts, smell the roses, silver lining)
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Gnome Sweet Gnome & Critters in the Forest sets)
Ink: Clearsnap (Stephanie Bernard Dye: chocolate, Top Boss embossing)
Embossing Powder: Stampendous! (detail white) 
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Felt: Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Circle Punch: Marvy Uchida
Corner Rounder: Creative Memories
Dies: Papertrey Ink (In The Meadow & Clouds dies)
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft 

Instructions:  Make card from smooth white cardstock, then round the bottom corners.  Cut aqua paper slightly smaller, round the top corners and adhere to the front. Diecut the grass from two different green patterned papers and trim to the correct length.  Round the bottom corners, then layer together to the bottom of the card.  Punch a circle from sun dotted paper, and diecut two clouds from vintage cream felt.  Adhere the clouds to the bottom of the circle.  Cut triangles from orange paper and adhere to the top part of the sun, adhere to the card and accent with pearls.  Stamp and heat emboss the sentiment to the bottom of the card.  Stamp the remaining images to all the necessary papers, cut out and layer together.  Adhere each item to the card front as shown to finish.

-CAS-ual Friday #41- punny sentiment
