Lori and I ordered some of the new Whiff of Joy stamps. Lori sent an image to Jenn and challenged us to post a card with them today.  I used colors from this weeks Crazy 4 Challenges challenge and the layout from the current CPS sketch.

I stamped the I’m sorry Gnome in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a 2 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Neenah Kraft cardstock. The corners were rounded and the image was colored with Copic Markers (Shoes, jacket, hat: E33, E35, E37   Jacket, Socks, Grass: YG03, YG25, YG17   Shirt: BG01, BG02, BG05   Skin: E02, E04   Flowers: R21, R22, R24, Y38, YR18). Fine sparkle was added over the flowers with a clear Spica pen. The cardstock was sponged with Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint Distress inks before it was adhered to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Canyon Brown cardstock. The edges of the image layer were paper pierced.

A 4″ x 5 1/5″ piece of MME Stella & Rose Gertie paper piece was stitched to a 3 1/6″ bigger piece of Canyon brown cardstock. Three pieces from the same paper pack were stitched to the right hand side of the layers. The pink ones measuring 1 1/2″ x 2″, the aqua layer is a 2″ square. Cappuccino Twine was wrapped around the pieces. A Kraft piece of cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest of the Tag Trio dies was tied to the twin after a sentiment from Magical Wishes was stamped on it. Orange Kaisercraft Rhinestones on the tag as well as the image layer finish off this card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
Hugs and smiles
