Hi everyone! Have you seen the latest Simon Says Stamp release? Oh my gosh, such cuteness! I just had to have Secret Garden with it’s coordinating dies. (I also had to have one of the new wine themed sets. I’ll share that later.)
All of my images were stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. To “hang” the gnome from the sign, I cut a little slit around his hand to insert the bottom edge of the sign, and I cut off his feet (gasp!) so that I could extend them past the top edge of the sign. (That portion is raised on 1/2″ foam tape.)
To assemble all the pieces, I used X-Press It’s Medium Glue Pen and Wide Glue Marker. (My favorite is the wide marker.) Each dries strong and clear and can be used as either a permanent or temporary adhesive. If the nibs get dirty, they can be pulled out and rinsed or even reversed for a fresh nib. Super cool.
I’ll be using other elements from this super-cute stamp/die set very soon.
Thanks so much for visiting today!
