This fun little card features the cute little toadstools and the toad! I stamped the toad image onto yellow card stock and colored with Copic markers before cutting him out. I then added Glossy Accents to him. The toadstool image was stamped onto white, colored with Copic markers and then cut/embossed using Spellbinders dies. I added the Hello sentiment to the lower right hand corner, stamping in green ink. The bee image is on the designer paper I used. I added the green ribbon which has a little copper in it as well.
What a cute little gnome! I stamped him onto white card stock and colored with Distress markers before cutting/embossing with Spellbinders oval dies. I stamped the butterflies from the set onto white card stock and colored them with Copic markers before cutting and mounting them onto the card front. I used a bit of foam mounting tape behind the wings to hold them up just a big. The brick red panel is embossed using the Spellbinders Flora M-bossabilities folder. The vine is cut with another die and added behind for a bit more dimension and interest.

This Bee saw the Bee on the 1st card instantly. What stamp did you sue for the Bee? Like the coloring. Especially like how you popped up the Butterflies. When I think of gnomes I think of the statue one a friend painted for me & gave to me when I was younger and I still have it.
