I could not decide what I wanted to focus on … so I went for a few of my favorite things the Gnomes, Oxide Inks, and Stencils.

For this card I crated a background with Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint Oxide inks. I then used the Stencil Pack #3 with Peacock Feathers on Daisy White Cardstock. I then cut the “happy” using the Simple Serif Uppercase Thin Cuts. The “Birthday” was stamped using the October Stamp of the Month ~ With All My Love. I could not resist using the adorable gnomes from the Garden Gnome Stamp and Thin Cuts. I colored the gnome and mushroom with my Triblend markers. I added a couple of Crystal Sparkles and a Bitty Sparkles that I colored with my TriBlend Markers.

For this card I use the same Garden Gnome Stamp and Thin Cuts. I cut the mushrooms from my Cricut. I made it into a card by welding two of the bases together. I cut the layers of the mushroom with Almond, Pewter, Daisy White and Lagoon Cardstock. I also adde a bit of glitter with the White Glitter Paper and Silver Stickles Glue to the belt buckle.

My last card I designed a thanks card using the Thanks Thin Cuts. I used the new Grape cardstock with Vellum as the outline. I created the sunburst pattern using Stencil Pack #3 on Daisy White Cardstock. I use Chipped Sapphire and Seedless Preserves Oxide inks. I then wanted to add some glitter, so I added Icicle Stickle Glue to one of the layers with the stencil.
