Warm Thoughts

Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge #10 – Gnomes & Challenge #285 – Aurora

As You See It has a colour challenge and Caffeinated Christmas needs gnomes so I combined the two challenges into one card. My gnome is from a SSS set, and the cup image is a stamp I’ve had for while, but the label has come off so I don’t know the manufacturer. I coloured my gnome using Prisma pencils and one or two Sakura glaze pens and then fussy cut him. The cup was done with Spectrum Noir pens and also fussy cut. Each image was popped up with foam tape. The oval PP is from StampinUp and the background piece is another company, however I’ve forgotten the name at the moment. The background was die cut with a rectangle stitched die also unbranded and the oval uses Infinity Dies from Hero Arts. The letters forming the word are from MFT, the same set I used the other day and as you can see the puffy look works on more than just the metallic paper I used on that project. This lime green paper is fairly thin but it still gives a slightly puffy look. Inside the card it reads Warm thoughts of you, all words that came with the cup stamp set. Thanks for taking a look and I hope your day is going well.

  1. Fun card! You found a good substitute for Parakeet Party. It is a fairly bright color and your lime is a good match. I like how you combined both challenges.

  2. What a great creation, made from such a range from your extensive collection! Very pleasing when that happens. I like the star in the letter o and I think your gnome is lovely. You’ve done such a great job colouring with pencils – I never seem to get it looking so good! Thanks for joining in again with us at As You See It Challenge.

    1. I’m glad the background gives off the vibe you mention as that was what I was hoping for. Thanks for commenting.


  3. Great job matching colours and colouring with a variety of media, Johanna! That background makes it look so cold and I’m sure that poor little gnome is ready for some hot cocoa AND a cupcake! Thanks for getting colourful with us at As You See It Challenges.
