Pink Cat Studio ~ Feb 24th Digi Release!

Welcome to one of the most anticipated Pink Cat Studio digi releases ever! This post is filled with gnomey goodness so make yourself comfy and enjoy. I went with a modern folk theme for my cards this week to show you that you don't have to stick to gnomey themes with these images. They are so cute, they will work with just about anything!

First up is a card using the little girl from the gnome family, Lulibell. I love her with the little deer! I paired her up with one of my favourite sentiments from Unity's One of a Kind. Gnomes are funky, aren't they? LOL Then I embellished this card with stickers from Echo Park's A Walk in the Park Collection. I popped Lulibell on to the card base with foam adhesive and rounded one corner of the card.

Next up is a card using the little boy from the gnome family, Finnbert. Don't you just love the names Melissa has given these gnomes? I paired him up with a sentiment from Unity's Boys Will Be Boys and the 'caution' part gave me the idea of pairing up black and yellow baker's twine from The Twinery. My son was driving me batty the day I made this and his craziness inspired this background.

After I popped Finnbert on to the card base with foam adhesive, I felt that the card needed an anchor so I die cut some patterned paper from Echo Park's A Walk in the Park Collection with the notebook edge die from My Favorite Things, something I hadn't used yet.

Finally, here are the parents (who could also double-up as grandparents), Ninbert and Gladibell! I thought I'd use them to make a cute little anniversary card. Aren't they adorable? I can see them welcoming you to a new home, to the neighbourhood, just to say hello and thanks... pretty much anything! Who knew gnomes could be so versatile, eh? :)

Oh my, this release was so fun to colour and all of these gnomey images just make me smile. Imagine all the sentiments you could pair with them! I hope you've been inspired. If not, or if you need more inspiration, just head on over to the Pink Cat Studio Blog or click on the DT links on my sidebar. Have a wonderful day!

I'm seriously blown away every time I visit your blog...Your cards are so creative and CAS at the same time! Only you can do this. I love the gnomes (Have you seen Gnomeo and Juliet?
