Hey there, I know, I know...I barely spend any time on my blog any more.  Although I haven't been coloring much, I have at least been getting my craft on with some die cut projects.  They are quick and easy and offer instant gratification.  Here's an easy peasy one that I made with My Favorite Things dies and stamps.  So simple, yet kind of elegant...don't you think?

STAMPS:  MFT More Essential Sentiments
PAPER:  Neenah Solar White; Bella Blvd Sand & Surf; Bazzill
INK:  Memento Tuxedo Black 
ACCESSORIES:  Sizzix Big Shot; MFT Die-namics (Blueprints 15, Wild Greenery); MISTI; Zig 2-Way Glue pen; KaiserCraft Black Pearls; adhesive
SIZE OF FINISHED PROJECT:   A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2")

So...let's talk about either like them or you don't.  Am I right?!?  I have some gnomes in my garden, so I guess I would be in the "not a hater" category.  My preference is the cute, little guys...not the creepy, sneaky ones that like to play tricks when you aren't looking!  *snort*  Anyway, have you seen MFT "You Gnome Me" illustrated by Birdie Brown?  Amazingly adorable, I tell ya!  I couldn't wait to break out my markers for this one!  Yep, that's right...I colored!  Ha!

Blueprints 16 was used to cut the background panel.  A Stitched Circle Frame was cut from Kraft and white card stock.  The Kraft pieces were stamped with the Woodgrain Background.  Acetate encloses the "window" while the white frame finishes the inside.  The new Simple Leaf Flourishes is the perfect touch to lay down the base for the greenery.  The red rose is the Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose and I absolutely love how it can be shaped to look so realistic!  QC Fringed Mum and Magnolia leaves were used as filler too complete the card front.

Here's the inside...the stitched panel was cut with Blueprints 21, stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah then colored with Copic markers.  I really had a blast coloring this!
