The Gnomes Part 2

If you came here today expecting a dignified post and intelligent conversation, SORRY!!  Remember my Gnome Sweet Gnome  card?  I was trying  to come up with a cute little saying to put inside and my blogging friend, Lisa,  gave me several ideas.  I settled on "Gnome-one is as special as you!".  She also planted the seed of a sequel as she was wondering where they were off to and what adventure they would have.  Well...I can't tell you all of the details, since neither would kiss and tell, but Chip and Rocky (he's a little chipped and she's made of stone, get it?!) wanted me to share their latest adventure...

That's right, they fell in love, are now happily married and living in Boulder (sorry...couldn't resist)!

Check out Chip's fancy suit and his crystal effects hat, jacket, and shoes.  Of course, Rocky is all dressed up as well.  Did you know that when you put lots of dazzling details on vellum, it wrinkles?  I didn't. However, since it is her wedding day, we are calling them ruffles and just attached the vellum to a piece of blushing bride card stock!!

I had so much fun with this card, especially since it really wasn't for anyone other than me!   Oh, just a heads up that Chip and Rocky are keeping in touch and may show up on my blog again for another adventure.  I hope you have enjoyed my 'pun'filled adventures of Chip and Rocky! If not, I blame Lisa! She started it!!

On a more professional, crafty note, I used my heart framelits for the first time on this card. I LOVE THESE THINGS!!! Can't wait to see what SU comes out with next in this department!!

Card Recipe: Cardstock-very vanilla, Sending Love DSP (ret), real red, vellum, Stamp Set-Gnome Sweet Gnome, Ink-stazon black, assorted markers, Accessories-very vanilla seam binding, cherry cobbler & original dazzling details, crystal effects, snow burst embossing folder, hearts collection framelits


  1. Hahahaha, you had me laughing at their names, Chip and Rocky, but when you threw out Boulder...LOLOLOL...that really got me. :D

    Love the continuation of the story and I look forward to more of their appearances on your blog. How cute that you made her a veil too!! Her "ruffles" turned out perfectly.

    Thanks for the great morning giggles....

    "Boulder" hahahahahaha....

  2. Those ruffles on the wedding dress are perfect. I've been meaning to ink up my gnome set. Today's the day!

  3. There's more of those little people again and just as cute as ever! LOVE all the shimmer and shine on this cute "love" card.

  4. How sweet it is!! You are rockin the gnomes! This is the perfect valentines card too! Big hugs to you and I hope you are enjoying your long weekend!

  5. I think I am a little in love with Chip and Rocky. They are so cute. I hope they had a lovely wedding day. Can't wait to see their honeymoon 'snaps'. Hope they are enjoying living in Boulder too. (Too funny!!!)

  6. This is tooo cute!! Who knew that Vellum would wrinkle with Dazzling Details? I looked at it and thought it was material. Can't wait to use this set and can't wait to see what else you have in store with these two:)

  7.'re so funny! Cute card and I had no idea about vellum doing that, so good to know!


I would love to know what you think! Thanks for commenting!
