"I'm Back Again"

Saturday, September 17, 2011


Well after about a month I'm back up and running.

I was very surprised when the company that I had been demonstrating for, "The Angel Company" for twelve (12) years closed up business without any notice. It made it pretty ruff, because I had taken a bunch of customer order, and had to return the money. I signed up with "Close to My Heart" and I am, so far very happy with them.


They have a great line of products and very low prices on thier product.


Any who, this is one of the cards that I demonstrated at my last gathering;



"Gnome House"




The image is from "Close to My Heart" from a set called "Gnome Garden" number C1470. It has nine stamps in the set and cost $13.95.


I wanted the card to be decorative on the edge, so I used ther Spellbinder "Label 8" to cut the edge of the card body and both pieces of the mat paper. Gives it a little different look. The only thing that you have to do different is to cut the card body down from 5 1/2" to 5 1/8" so that it will fit inside of the die.


The image was colored with Copic markers;

Roof and door frame B02,B05,

Door ; E33,E15

Walls; Y11,Y17

Grass; G00, G02


The hinges and door knob were colored with a "Gell Roll" gold glitter pen. It's hard to see in the picture but it's there.


The corner of the stamp mat and the mat where cut with a "Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper"in the "Cloud" pattern. These Corner Chompers are great and have two patterns on each.


Hope you enjoy todays creation, and will leave a comment. All comments are appreciated.


Have a GREAT DAY!!!

    Love the gnome house! My kids and I build fairy houses, and the year I was taking an art class, I drew them :)

    Great card.
