Woodware USA Monday...

Hey stamping friends.  It's WoodwareUSA Monday and I've got something NEW to share...Well, two somethings, to be exact!  Just last week I noticed that Woodware USA posted some brand spankin' new sets aptly titled "2011 FALL RELEASE" and practically wet my pants with joy!  SOOO many fabulous stamp sets just sneaked up on me.  I was soooo giddy!  So giddy in fact that I purchased two sets.  They arrived on Friday (all the way from California) and I knew I had to play with them right away!  SUPER fast shipping don't you think? 

Anyway, what did I get you may ask?  Well, I think I put about seven or eight of the new sets in my shopping cart but upon checkout I rethought that idea since school is starting soon and I need all the extra funds I can get to get my classroom ready for new students.  SOOO...I put things back on the shelf (wink) except for two sets that wouldn't budge this time...

Cute 'eh?  Isn't this gnome adorable?  How about that ribbon banner and sentiment?  PERFECT!!!  I colored up this little gnome with no blending of color...I wanted him to be flat and colorful.  I did think about the colors.  I colored a few of these gnomes with red hats (like the ones in gardens) and also colored some with yellow hats.  I REALLY love it!  Since this week is all about "use a new technique", I decided to do a little strip of fabric-well, not really a strip of fabric but 1/2 x 1/x inch squares of patterned paper from My Minds Eye that I got NEW last week.  It's called Everyday Flair and I'm in LUVVV! 
So...Not really a new technique, but I did use all NEW stamps and NEW paper....That's gotta count for something right? 
This is a close up of the paper, stitching and the sentiment.  I just love the gingham checks int this paper set.
