Gnomes Are Stealing My Sanity

Gnomes Are Stealing My Sanity

Hi! Thanks for checking out my first blog post as a Viva Las Vegastamps! Design Team member. I have a strange sense of humor, as you will see in some of my postings. For this project I decided to make a card using three stamps from Viva Las Vegastamps!

To start out, I stamped the crazy lady and the gnome on white cardstock with black Memento ink and colored them with Copic markers and then cut them out. I cut the window frame by hand with a razor and then inked it with a cat’s eye ink pad. I cut the thought bubbles using software and my electronic cutting machine. I used blue Distress Ink to color the piece that goes outside the window. After that, I just assembled the pieces as you see here in the finished card. The crazy lady and the large thought bubble are adhered with popdots to add dimension.

Here are the item numbers for the stamps I used, and they can all be found at the Viva Las Vegastamps! Online Store.

  • Gnome in Mushrooms  17244
  • Hear No Evil Lady  4271
  • One by One, The Gnomes  17230

That’s it for this week, keep checking back for more ideas. And be sure to check out the Viva Las Vegastamps! blog for more creative ideas from the rest of the design team!
