Simon Say Stamp - Gnome Lucky Card



Hello Lovelies! We have over a week before St. Paddies Day, but I'm already seeing green with my Gnome Lucky Card from Simon Says Stamp's Good Luck Charm Release!


As you may be able to tell if you've seen my craft space, I kinda have a thing for green, so I truly indulged myself here with green cardstock, ink and markers for this festive card. The pop of yellow, gives contrast and your eyes an opportunity to rest from all of that green.


I think that I may be the only PaperCrafter that does not enjoy coloring with markers as much as I should, but I'm so glad that I made the effort here on my little gnome. In addition to markers, let's review the key supplies for this card.

PREPARE THE STENCIL BACKGROUND & INK-BLENDED DIECUT

Secure largest-size Layered Confetti stencil over white cardstock.













Apply Sprout ink with Lucky Blending Brush through openings in stencil.













Apply Fairway ink with Lucky Blending Brush through openings in stencil.













Apply Field ink with Lucky Blending Brush through openings in stencil.













Completed stenciled background should look like this.
















Stamp the Lucky Gnome image in Intense Black over the stenciled background as shown.













Die-cut the image using the corresponding Lucky Gnome outline die.














Die-cut a dome out of white cardstock.















Ink with Lemonade as shown using the Citrine Blending Brush.













Ink with Citrine around the top and 3/4 way down the die-cut as shown using the Citrine Blending Brush.













 


PREPARE DIE-CUTS

Stamp the Lucky Gnome image again, as well as the horseshoe in Intense Black onto plain white cardstock.


Stamp two clovers, one in Sprout and one in Fairway.









Color gnome with Copics as follows:

  • Hat Band - C5, C6

  • Skin - E31, E35

  • Beard - YR12, YR27

  • Hat Buckle/Horseshoe - Y08

  • Hat/Clothing - G07, G14








Completed gnome should look like this minus where I colored outside the lines. :-)












Die-cut Gnome, Horseshoe and Clovers. I am using 3M Artist Tape to secure my dies without damaging my coloring. I also like Thermoweb Pixie Tape, it's very gentle.










With die-cut pieces prepared, use a sharp scissors to sharp scissored to separate the Copic-colored gnome from the "L" and the "C".

























Adhere the Copic-colored gnome over the stenciled confetti gnome.



























Cut 3 strips of green cardstock using the Strips 1 die.















 

EMBELLISH & LAYER

Strips are adhered first, followed by the trimmed domed arch and then die-cuts. The stamped/stenciled gnome lucky diecut and lighter clover are popped up on foam tape.




Select, trim and adhere the "I'm Feeling" phrase from the Lucky Reverse Sentiment Strips Set.


Stamp, trim and pop-up the "Let the Shenanigans..." sentiment from the Gnome Lucky Stamp Set.


 

Last look!


 

Lovelies, many holidays have theme colors and when you are stuck for color inspiration, choosing a monochromatic scheme from that theme can kick start you card.


Thank you for visiting and see you soon!
