Early morning creating

So today is the first day of my new job and I’m up way to early with anticipation. What’s a girl to do till she has to go to the train station? Create of course!

I seem to be enamored with these adorable gnomes from Apple Blossom and a simple striped background from Stampin Up using Brushstrokes was the perfect addition for balance. I used a new ink from Catherine Pooler Designs Spa ink collection called Eucalyptus for the background – love these new colours, slightly muted yet still gorgeous. I added a little bit of puff paint for the snow at my gnomes feet and I was done.


I used the current sketch over on TGIF Challenges #137 to inspire me. my design.


I managed to squeeze one more card in before heading out the door.


This one I used Stampin Up Coffee Cafe stamps and DSP and the sentiment is from another Stampin Up set called Jar of Cheer.The elements of this card were inspired by the current Tic Tac Toe challenge #027 where I chose the ribbon/patterned paper/coffee or tea line.


Thanks for looking and I’m now off to start my next career adventure.

  1. Tristan, I hope your first day on your new job went well! I just subscribed to your blog. I saw your work on Gerda Steiner and enjoyed it. You may remember me from Stamp Nation, lovinpaper. Nice to chat a little and to see your work. Your blog is very enjoyable.
