Can't Have A Rainbow Without A Little Rain + Gnome Face Tutorial!

 Happy Friday everyone! I'm back today with my latest project for Jaded Blossom. I'm having a blast with the last release so I've created another scene card. My gnome is outside enjoying a cup of coffee, the warm sun, and beautiful rainbow!

I've been asked a lot in the Jaded Blossom Facebook Group how I create the face on the gnome so keep scrolling through this post for a short tutorial. :)

To create this card, I used the Gnome Dies with the Weather Add Ons (rain hat, sun, and cloud). The rainbow is from the Rainbow Dies. The grassy knoll was cut out using the grass border die from Mushroom Dies. I raised the sun, rainbow, and cloud on foam tape for extra dimension.

Now for the long awaited Gnome Face Tutorial. You're gonna be surprised at how easy it is. :)
Step 1: Cut your gnome body from white paper. Since I color with Copic Markers, I cut the gnome from Xpress It Blending Card. Now, all you do is color in the bottom portion of the "hat" in skin tone colors to create the face. I used E000, E00, E01, E11, and E13. You can use any skin tone coloring medium you have....colored pencils, markers, or crayons! If you don't want to mess with colorong, then just cut the gnome shape from cream or tan cardstock...easy peasy!

**NOTE: If you want him to have rosy cheeks you can use a cotton swab with pink chalk and add it to the lower sides of his face. If you want to add cheeks closer to his nose, then do this step now before you glue down his mustache.

Step 2: I cut the rest of the pieces I was going to use from Copic Xpress It Blending Card and once again used my Copic Markers to color in the pieces.
Do you see the hands by the nose piece? Those are going to be his ears!

Step 3: Adhere his beard, mustache, and nose using glue. Next grab a black pen because we are going to draw in his eyes.

Step 4: I just free-hand the eyes using the Copic Multiliner Pen and color little oval shapes. If you have stamps, you could also use those.

Step 5: Next, you are going to add the extra set of hands to the sides of his head for ears. I usually lay my hat over the top of his head to gauge where his ears should go.

Step 6: The last step is to add his hat and whatever he is holding (coffee mug in this case). I did something a little different with the rain hat this time around. I used my cutting knife and cut a slit along the perforated line so I could slide his head under the rain hat. I liked it better because I was able to line up the hat right above his eyes and his ears.

I hope this inspires you to try adding a face to your gnomes! Also, remember we have a current monthly challenge going on right now. The theme is
POLKA DOTS, and you have until May 6th to play along! Be sure to check out the Jaded Blossom Store for all your stamps and gift giving supplies. They have various Cutting Dies to make party favors along with Favor Bags and Boxes. 

Have a great weekend!

For My Mom

 Hello, friends! Cynthia here sharing a new project just in time for Mother's Day! I love flowers and the Tropical Flower Dies are perfect for this special occasion!

I die cut the little flowers in a light pink and edged each one with Distress Ink. I punched 3/8" circles for the centers and used some gold glittery gems for some added dimension. I die cut some greenery for accents from the die set. I used the barrel die for the foundation of the bouquet and added the wooden sign to highlight "MOM" from the Gnome Dies: Spring Add Ons. 

I die cut a white background and also die cut a farmer's market themed patterned paper for the base. I added a sentiment from the Mother's Day set and the card is done!

Thanks for stopping by!

Tulips for Sale

Hi friends! It's Julee here today with a bit of Spring inspiration for you. We're in like 7th winter here, with snowfall as recently as last week, so I'm really hoping spring actually comes this year! At least it has sprung in my craft room, if not outside.

For this card, I used the beautiful multi-step stamping Tulips set. I picked a couple of pinks and a couple of greens and got to work stamping up a garden. I then cut each piece with the coordinating Tulips Outline Dies.

Next up I pulled out the tulip dies from the Gnome Dies: Easter Add Ons 2. I just love these dies. I cut from pink cardstock, then lightly sponged around the edges before adhering together. For the "planter box" I used the rectangle from the Build a Booth Dies, cut from green cardstock,  I then embossed The Tulips for Sale sentiment from the Carrots for Sale set.  For the background, I used the Card Mat Dies on pink cardstock, then stenciled the Polka Dot Stencil tone on tone.  I liked the look, so decided to do the same with the tulips for sale panel, then glued everything together.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulously creative day!
