Stay Humble-Work Hard-Be Kind

2/3/23 Rising Star at A Place To Start!

Hey everybody! Happy first day of February… already! Can you believe it?! Mom and Dad would have been married 75 years today and I’m sure they are celebrating that Diamond Anniversary in Heaven! I’m delighted to be back with another Keep It Simple DT inspiration project to share! This mini slimline features products from the Household Chore Gnomes collection that was released last September! You know I love me some gnomes and these are some of the cutest ever!

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with strips and a layering panel from papers in the Household Chore Gnomes Collection Pack and the Back To Basics Royal Collection Pack. I stamped the gnome, bubbles and soap from the Household Chore Gnomes Work Hard Stamps in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Solar White cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers, and cut them with the coordinating Household Chore Gnomes Work Hard Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Catherine Poole Suede Shoes ink and added several Back To Basics Royal Enamel Dots.

I cut the inside panel from Solar White cardstock, embellished it with strips of the papers used on the front, and stamped the sentiment in blue ink.

Sharing in the following challenges:
1. A Place To Start: January 2023 Anything Goes
2. The Crafter’s Cafe: #293 – Colors of the Rainbow and More (use bright colors)

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
