Gnome Home/Stamptember

I love using Toadstools houses for a New Home card and the new stamp set from Simon Says Stamp Secret Garden has a perfect one.

I fussy cut the windows, doors etc to layer and I stamped a standalone toadstool so I could add it. The papers are Echo Park Happy Summer, I used the Simon Says Stamp Wavy Stitched Scallop border on the sky piece and layered over the green abstract pattern one then used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle over then both.

I haven't used the sentiments on the stamp set, for example Gnome Sweet Gnome wouldn't work because I didn't use the gnome! So I used the Simon Says Stamp Furry Cat in a box which has several occassions covered.

I confess that I don't bother trying to avoid the dots on the toadstools I much prefer to use a Unit-Ball White pen works a treat.

A heatwave is expected here in the UK so not sure how much card making will be happening may need to hide out in the coldest room in the house with a fan on!

    Wish we could have a heatwave, in my part of Wales, it dull and overcast with sprinkles of rain and I'm sitting in my room with a cardie on! Hoping it will warm up tomorrow!
