Teamwork makes the dream work

9/30/22 Runner Up Winner at Classic Design Challenge!

Hey everybody! Happy Happy Tuesday! Is it (finally) cooling off where you are?! I hope so – we’re having some beautiful nighttime temps here in southwestern Colorado! Okay, I have to tell you – Keep It Simple has done it again! They’ve released another amazing collection and this one is called Household Chore Gnomes! I’m having a large time playing with these products! I created a thank you card featuring items from the Spring Cleaning Stamp & Die Bundle and Work Hard Stamp & Die Bundle. I also used the Back to Basics Royal Collection Pack 6×6 Double-Sided Cardstock and Royal Enamel Dots which are both already in the store.

I cut a top-folding square card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from the Back to Basics Royal Collection Pack. I created a wood floor by covering a strip of Solar White cardstock with Eyelet Outlet Wood washi tape. I stamped, colored and die cut gnomes from the Spring Cleaning Stamp & Die Bundle and the Work Hard Stamp & Die Bundle. I stamped a sentiment from the Spring Cleaning Stamps, punched it with a circle punch and layered it on a slightly larger punched circle. The finishing touch was adding several Back to Basics Royal Enamel Dots.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock along with strips from the Back to Basics Royal Collection Pack, and then stamped a sentiment from the Work Hard Stamps.

And one more peek… love, love, love this card! What a super fun way to say thanks! Have I mentioned how much I love playing with this bundle?! LOL!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
