Gnoming You Better

Hello friends! I'm back on the High Hopes blog today with a card featuring stamps from their newest release Get Well Soon - these are perfect for those cards that we don't like giving out (because it means someone isn't feeling well), but hopefully the cute characters and sentiments in this release will help brighten their day.

You can watch the card process video below or in full HD on my YouTube channel:

I used Copic markers to color the Gnoming You Better stamp. Here are the colors I used:

White Coats: BG 70 & Colorless Blender
Hair: YR 20, YR 21, YR 23, & YR 27
Beard: N 0, N 2, & N 4
Clipboard: E 11, E 13, & E 15
Pants: BG 09
Red cross: R27 & R 29
Lips: R24
Faces: E 0000, E 00, & E 11
Stethoscope: N 2, N 4, & N 6
Needle: YR 30 & Colorless Blender
Shoes: N 0, N 2, N 4, & N 6

It really didn't take me very long to color these gnomes because they're wearing white scrubs! I just added a little bit of shading with BG 70 and blended that out with the Colorless Blender.

The sentiment I used for this card is the We Gnome Best stamp that I heat embossed on vellum. I've been really into sentiment strips on vellum. I love how that although it goes over part of the card design, it doesn't completely cover it up.

Thank you all so very much for stopping by! I hope you'll check out the Get Well Soon release over in the High Hopes shop. And if you create a project with a High Hopes stamp, then we'd love to see it! Tag High Hopes on social media and join us in our Facebook group. Have a great day!
