Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop #44

Yay! it's time for another Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop! And this month's theme is great - anything from the new catalogue. Trouble is I love it all and didn't know which stamp set to pick!! What a happy dilemma :)

I ended up choosing the gnomes - how adorable are they? 

I decided to die cut the images directly from the designer series paper (what a genius idea that the dies fit perfectly!)  

Then I decided to build a scene with a shaker card - but not just any shaker card - a faker shaker card!! This shaker card is made using a piece of DSP inside a clear envelope with some sequins added. Then the envelope is sealed up and glued to the card base. Quick and easy. 

I used a wonderful snowflake in the background then added the toadstool and gnome using dimensionals.  I then added the sentiment. 

I hope you give these faker shaker cards a try - they are so much easier than the traditional ones. 

Next up on the blog hop is Sharon, I cannot wait to see what she has created.

Below is the full list of participants.
