My Favorite Things is running the 2016 Card Design Superstar contest and I saw the current entries from MFT blog. There’s a lot of amazing card submissions and its so great to see so many ways one can do on a stamp set 🙂 It will be closing in a few days but I’m taking my chance to share my take. I have nothing to lose right? It will always be fun.
I only have 3 stamp sets from MFT. One is the Santa set and the other the Pig and Gnome sets. I also have a very limited dies from MFT so I need to utilize whatever I have to create something fun for the challenge. One of the conditions is of course to use MFT stamps and dies only.
So here’s my contribution. I used a combination of the 2 stamp sets I have (Pig & Gnome) to create a small flower-pot scene. I first partially diecut the 3 gnomes in 2 separate panels, colored them with promarkers then later layered them using dimensional adhesive.
I also stamped other elements like the palette, flower pots, snails and mushrooms. Each and everyone is colored with promarker 🙂 I only have the coordinating dies for the gnomes so for the elements from the pig stamp like the flower pots and palettes, I fussy cut them. I know it will take a bit more time cutting but I love fussy cutting too 🙂
For my border, I used the wonky rectangles to add some accents.

A closer look at the colored images. Love coloring them 🙂
Another closer look of the layering and partial die cutting I did on this card.
Partial die cutting and panel layers. There are 2 different white panels with the gnomes, one has the 2 gnomes and the other layer with 1 gnome partially die cut with the rest of the flower pots etc.
