Sweet Garden Gnome Elsie…


Hi everyone!  It’s CC Designs Thursday Review day on the ATS blog… HERE.  Illustrator Amy Young’s newest line is the Sweet November Garden Gnomes, Adele, Elsie and Tilly.  So charming!


I used some October Afternoon pattern paper from an 8×8 pad..Sidewalks.  I paper pieced Elsie’s clothes, shoe and watering can.  I hand stitched the stamped stitched marks.  Some Prima flowers, a Wilton 4 in. doily from Walmart, machine stitching and the Leafy Branch die.  Oh,  I punched circles for the flower centers.  Used a stylus and mouse pad to make them round up and stuck them on a bitty piece of mounting tape.  Layers are all cut with the PERFECT LAYERING TOOLS!  love them!  Links below…


I edged all the papers with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress ink and the ink blending tool.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Looking forward to a pleasant weekend… lots of memories to treasure and more to make with family!  Some more stamping coming too! Take care!  ttul!

Stamps and Such…

I love all the details and stitching and am amazed how you used all the different papers from the Sidewalk set of papers. I wish the camera could pick up more of the paper piecing details. Beautiful card! Thanks! Pam!
