It's New Release Day at Paper Sweeties

I've been craftin'.  Most of the time, I'm crafting alone; but today I'm Craftin' With My Gnomies.  Paper Sweeties invites YOU to start Craftin' With Your Gnomies as well; and it can all  be done by purchasing the DARLING new Build A Gnome Stamp Set, Build a Gnome Sweet Cuts, Craftin With My Gnomies Stamp Set and Sweet Cuts, and the FUN Photoplay Craftin' With My Gnomies products.  They are SO much fun.
This card uses a piece of basic white cardstock to which I attached some patterned papers from the Photoplay Craftin' With  My Gnomies Paper Pad.  I inked my patterned papers and machine stitched them in black to create my background.  I stamped, cut and colored the gnomes using the Build a Gnome Stamp Set and Sweet Cuts and my Copics.  The sentiment (Craftin' With My Gnomies) as well as the pencil, scissors, heart and flowers are from the new Craftin' With My Gnomies Stamp Set and Sweet Cuts.
I stamped all the images using the Coal Black Ink Pad.  I also ran a length of knotted Bubblegum Baker's Twine around my card and tied a bow with it.  As you can see, I stamped the same gnome twice.  The one on the left (shown above) is colored in teal with pink accents.  He's holding his scissors from the Craftin' With My Gnomies Stamp Set, and he's all ready to get craftin'.
The colors found in the Photoplay Paper Pad are bright and cheery, and they were very easy to match up with other Paper Sweeties products.  The black machine stitching pulls out the Coal Black Ink on all the stamped edges as well as the sentiments.  All the images in the new sets are adorable.  It's never a problem matching colors of Ink Pads, Seam Binding, Sequins and more at Paper Sweeties.
As you'll see in the photo above, the gnome on the right side of my heart was colored in the opposite colors - pink with teal accents.  This gnome is holding his pencil because he wants to take notes on all the cute things he sees over at Paper Sweeties.  He's writing up his Paper Sweeties wish list.  You'll want to do the same.
In my last photo, shown above, you'll see that I created a matching envelope for my card.  These darling Photoplay Patterned Papers make it easy to create a coordinating envelope.  I cut a piece of the same polka dot patterned paper as used on my card, and I cut an insert for the envelope.  I scored it on the fold, and wha-la!!  Here are the links to the blogs of my talented teammates who have prepared some extra inspiration for you today.  Just click on the links below to be taken directly to their blog to see today's projects.
