ATS July Review

Today All That Scraps is having a review for the Sweet November July stamp releases.  My card once again features Garden Gnome Gertie.  Rather than the rubber stamp, this time I used the digi image and paper pieced her outfit.  I didn't have a problem until the little butterfly on her apron...yikes is it tiny!  I had to use my fingernails to try and hold the paper.  If I use this design again and decide to paper piece, I'll make the image a little bit bigger.  To make the green plants coordinate with the sprouts in Gertie's nut planter, I used the C.C. Designs die Mistletoe and cut the branches apart.  Gertie's frame is the Spellbinders Lacey Ovals.  The papers are from Pebbles Sunny Side, and the sentiments were cut from one of the papers in the pad.

Please check out Amy's blog, A Thousand Sheets of Paper, Nancy's blog, Creative Palette, Marion's blog, Card's by MarionE, and the design team girls at ATS to see their cards for the review, and remember the stamps, both digi and rubber, are available for purchase at All That Scraps.

  1. Oh Tress, I completely adore these bright and colorful papers that you used both for the card and for Gertie's lovely outfit, she looks so stylish! Really clever use of the mistletoe die too, everything about this card is just fantastic! Thanks SO much for being an amazing SN guest this month, I can't tell you how much I appreciate all of your time and talent! :)
