To Gnome Me is to Love Me – Flora & Fauna Clear

Another adorable set from Flora & Fauna Clear, this one with a little gnome and terrarium parts. Complete with little sign posts, sentiments and mushrooms.

This little guy comes alive with a little masking using stamping masking paper to make a mask covering the gnome so that you can easily stamp some greenery behind him. I chose to fussy cut the little sign and mount it outside the terrarium for something different.

A little forest green twine at the top of the terrarium finishes it off. A bit of holiday whimsy before the “busy ness” of the season.

Linking some of the supplies below for which I may receive some small bits of remuneration.


Cheers to a great week!


Happy Howl-idays! – Art Impressions

What could be better than “howling” with your dog friends? We were up for that and had a trip planned to visit friends at the Eastern Shore in Salisbury Maryland and show our dogs at these shows over a 5 day period. We howled, and enjoyed great meals together and did some winning.  So perfect image to play with today as this Art Impressions set was waiting for me when I got home.

Happy Howling

After stamping this cute image with Memento Tuxedo Black using my Misti, I colored the images with Copic Markers and popped it up using Scrapbook Adhesives dimensional foam squares. Oh, and those new Doodlebug papers! Used a soft teal green snowflake pattern from the Milk and Cookies pad for my background decorative paper. Sequins and the popped up sentiment on foam squares, attaching a bone image for the finish.

One exciting thing about this show was that we were able to have the entire litter of puppies together again, 14 plus months after they were born. Luna lives in Massachusetts and Faye in West Virginia and Lolly and Bravo in Anchorage, so for us it was so sweet to have them together again. We are so proud of this last breeding as the pups have all enjoyed wins this past week. Lolly finished her Championship, Luna picked up a major 4 point win as did Bravo and Faye competed to a Group 3 in the Bred By Exhibitor ring.

Like any paper crafter away from her studio though I was happy to get back to paper and ink. And, we brought back a few bugs. Many of us coughing and hacking and Bravo a special bug of his own. After his bath today, Rick found a tick at the base of his ear. Lolly’s dad came to his rescue and removed and treated it until we have a check up at the vet’s this week.
