A fun trifold card using Beach Gnome, Dad & Kid Gnome and Fourth of July Gnome from KLM Digital Designs

I decided to create a fun trifild card for my husband for Father's Day. I love creating a story with a trifold card, so I just knew that these three stamps would be perfect: Beach Gnome, Dad & Kid Gnome, and Fourth of July Gnome from KLM Digital Designs.

I used paper from my stash and colored the images with my hodgepodge of Spectrum Noir markers. I love using digi images. You can print them any size that you like. These are printed at 3 inches each. I also love mixing and matching my images for a fun card. 

Tea Time

I love this image. It is Tea Time by Digi Doodles Studio. I created this card for my mother. She and I just love tea. I thought she would certainly enjoy this sweet card.

 I created a 6x6 card. I used paper from my stash, which was gifted to me, and I just love! The pretty pinks and yellow in the pack inspired my section of markers. I die cut 2 ovals to place tea party image on. I think it just makes the girls pop! I added lace and flowers to the card too. I typed up the sentiment on my computer and printed. I love the flexibility of adding my own sentiments. I used a stencil and inked dots on the sentiment. It adds a nice touch.


I used the following copic:

  • Hair - E79, E74, E71, and E70. I made one of the girls a bit more brunette
  • Skin - E000, E01, E02, E11, and R30 for the rouge

You're Awesome! Banner Gnome by KLM Designs

Banner Gnome

For this card, I used Banner Gnome a KLM Designs stamp. This is such an adorable stamp, which can be used for any number of occasions. I used the sentiment that came with the stamp, but you could put any sentiment which fits on the banner. I plan to give this card to my husband for Father’s Day.

To create the background for the rectangle and for the matted card, I used a Tim Holtz stencil to create the paint droplets. I used a variety of Distress Inks to compliment the gnome.

 This was a fun card to create. It is a 6x6 card. The frame in the center is 3x3.

Floral Bird Arch

This is Floral Bird Arch from KLM Digital Stamps. I thought it would make the perfect thank you card.

I recently the nicest gift from Sandra V. She sent a sweet little stuffed toy to our little one for her birthday. It was such a wonderful surprise. So, I wanted to make a very special card to show her how appreciative I am to her. 

 I created a 6x6 card using paper from my stash. I colored the floral wreath with the following Copics:

  • Bird - RV10, RV11 and RV13
  • Yellow flowers - Y06, Y08, and Y13
  • Purple flower - V12, V17, and V20
  • Pink flower - R20, R21, and R30
  • Leaves - G02, and G05

I used sparkle ink over the top of the flowers to add a bit of shimmer

The thank you sentiment came with this beautiful stamp. I did use a bit of green alcohol ink to add a bit of pop to the sentiment. I wanted to keep the card a bit simpler so that the wreath would stand out. This is such a pretty, pretty stamp. 

I created a card using pencils colored on craft too. For this card, I used the following Prismacolor pencils:

Bird - clouded blue, blue lake, blue slate, and  perwinkle with a touch of spanish orhange for the bleak. 

  • Leaves - light green, aquamarine, and cobalt turquoise
  • Flower pink - deco pink, deco peach , and neon pink
  • Flower Purple -parma violet, lilac, and black cherry
  • Flower yellow - jasmine, light yellow, and cream
I used a pale lilac to color around the edge of the arch. I colored on craft paper, which I matted with a black card stock underneath.

Whether you use markers or pencils - you can make a beautiful thank you card.
