Gnome Family (CCMC179, KKCO7)

My package arrived today from Stampin' UP!, full of sneak peek goodies in the upcoming 2012 Occasions Mini and 2012 Sale-A-Bration...SO EXCITING!!  The new products are once again absolutely amazing and I couldn't help but indulge in lots of new tools, stamps, and accessories.

To put my new toys to use, I made a card for Create with Connie and Mary's fun color challenge using Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade, and Basic Gray.  I combined it with the KAPOW Kreative Challenge which is a great sketch this week.

I used Gnome Sweet Gnome and Gnomenclature from the upcoming 2012 Occasions Mini for all of the stamped images on this card.  The background is a piece of Lucky Limeade Cardstock stamped with the wagon, grass, flowers and watering can in Lucky Limeade Ink.
The Poppy Parade ribbon and co-ordinating brad came from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog, Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack. How much fun are those patterned brads?!?  Love them!
I stamped the Gnomes in Basic Gray Ink and colored them with Stampin UP! markers.  Unfortunately, I did not have all of the co-ordinating markers so I used Real Red, Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, Basic Gray and Blush Blossom.
Don't forget to check out the challenge websites to see the Design Teams beautiful projects and other great entries!
Thanks for stopping by:)!
