Useless Trinkets

Hello everyone 🙂 My new card today features this super cute image from called Gustav 🙂 he is just the cutest and if you take a look at the blog you’ll discover that there is tons of free digital stamps just like it. My inspiration came from Julia Altermann at and all her YouTube videos are amazing so please check her out. I have coloured him up with my Prismacolor pencils on kraft and I’ve gone super colourful this time, or you could say a little bit crazy. I cut him out with my Crea-Nest XXL square dies, and the size of this particular one i’ve used it 4.5″. The sentiment is also from useless trinkets 🙂 and I’ve cut that out with the stitched label dies from Lawn Fawn and popped it up on some mini foam pads. My paper choice for today is taken it from the Birthday Bisque 6×6 paper pad by jillibean soup, all fun and colourful papers in this pad, great for this image. I have matted this with some plain blue card from my stash. I have also popped the image up on some mini foam pads and i’ve added some small googley eyes for a little bit of embellishment. As always i’ve used a 6×6 pre-scored card for my base. I hope you like it xx

  1. I use lots of layers. I set down my main lightest colour all over the face and then I build up with my other shades. I use dark to light and then fill in the whole face with my last colour. I hope this helps.
