Cuteness overload! These Birdie Brown sets from My Favorite Things are so flipping adorable!! Today’s project features the MFT Hanging With My Gnomies stamp set. I used the sweet stamps from this set to make a ‘New Home’ card.
While I cannot say this is exactly a one-layer card, it’s pretty close. I knew I wanted to do masking and a scene. To begin, I chose the stamps I was going to use and stamped them onto masking paper. After cutting the masks, I stamped onto a panel of Neenah Solar White 80# cardstock and lightly colored with Copic Marker. I also applied the masks and used the MFT Radiating Rays stencil along with Distress Ink in Squeezed Lemonade, Abandoned Coral, and Fossilized Amber for the background.
After coloring with markers, I used Poloychromos pencils to add depth to the card.

After coloring, I trimmed the panel a quarter of an inch off horizontally and vertically and adhered to a white card base.
On a scrap of black cardstock I white heat embossed a sentiment from the Hanging With My Gnomies stamp set and used thin foam circles to adhere it to the card.
Using the MFT Cute Cloud Outlines die, I cut out a few clouds from white cardstock and inked the edges using Tumbled Glass Distress ink. I adhered them onto the card and then finished up by adding accents with a white gel pen and a black multiliner.
That’s it for today’s project. Thanks for stopping by.
