Kraftin' Kimmie Gnomes!! (Day Two of the March Sneak Peeks!)

Hi krafty friends!! We've got another round of Kraftin' Kimmie sneak peeks to share with you today featuring two brand new sets of gnomes by Krafty Artist Emilie Goulet!! The sets are called "Hangin' With My Gnomies" and "What's Up, Gnomie?". Each includes three main image stamps and an assortment of coordinating sentiments.

I've used this adorable knitting gnome from the Hangin' With My Gnomies Set...isn't she cute?! :)  I reached for the same MME papers (Gertie) that were on my card from yesterday, partly because I love them and partly because they were within arm's reach. lol  I cut her out and framed her with Spellbinders Labels 8 and used Spellbinders Fancy Tags for the sentiment, which is one you'll receive in the set. I also added some faux stitching with the In Stitches Set...love this handy set! The stitches were stamped with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. To finish it off, I added some pearls made with my Viva Decor Pearl Pen.


She was stamped on Neenah paper in Memento Ink and coloured with Copics. Guess I've been in a bit of paper-piecing mood. :)  Her hat, vest and skirt were all pieced with different patterns of the MME paper, and shading was added with my Copics.
