Anything Goes with Scrapflower Estudio

Hey there - I'm providing inspiration at Die Cut Divas today using digis from our amazing March sponsor Scrapflower Estudio. We have "Anything Goes" as the theme - no need to use digis; just be sure to use a die cut &/or embossing folder in your design.

Supplies: Paper - Park Lane A2 card; 
Graphic 45 Artisan Style 6x6 (2015)
Digi stamp - Scrapflower Estudio Reading Nordic Gnome
Dies - Hero Arts Stacked BooksPenny Black Wood Floors
Other - Copic Markers & Hero Arts water reactive inks

Scrapflower Estudio

I love, love, LOVE to read so I was delighted to see this adorable new file from Scrapflower Estudio. Perfect for Copics or pencils or whatever your fave medium for coloring! I chose Copics to color my reading gnome - looks like an English Literature professor in his study - LOL. I colored & fussy cut, then paired him with a die cut stack of books colored with water reactive inks. I left the sentiment off the front but will put something book related on the inside.

Literally, a book stack like this appears many places in my house - some already read & others waiting. I just finished "The Therapist" by B.A. Paris - love all the twists in that one! 

Now for a bonus - another gnome from the same file. For the girl gnome atop books, I added another book stack. This time I die cut it from Neenah, colored with Copics, and cut into three parts. Added a few books to the bottom of the girl gnome stack & tucked the rest behind her. Had one little cocktail sticker left from other cards and it found its way onto a book stack. The preprinted sentiment was in my bits box - not sure of the brand.

That's it for today - hope to see you in the March Diva gallery! And if you are reading something & want to share, let me know in the comments. 

Thanks for visiting! And special thanks to teamie Arlene (A Bit of This and That) for printing off this month's digis for me (still no working printer at my house). Happy crafting (and reading)!!

Fabulous cards Linda, love those gnome digis. I have read a few B.A.Paris books but not the Therapist I will add it to my ever growing list!

Yes, the cards are perfect for you, I think you could have taken a picture of yourself too... *LOL* Great job and I love both versions!!!

Two fab cards Linda, love the slightly tumbledown stack in the second one (that being the perilous state of many of mine own stacks around the house!). I’m reading Mrs England by Stacey Halls at the moment for my next book group — it’s a good read.

Arlene said...

I love the scene you created with the gnome reading in the chair and then your second card is just so much fun. I especially love seeing that drink on top of the books - I'm still grinning.

Love all the piles of books! I have a couple of spots in my house that seem to collect piles waiting patiently to be read! Julia xx
