I am so excited to share all of my gnome cards this week! Recently I ordered the Gnome for the Holidays Stamp Set, and I love it! I adore it! The little gnomes are so cute, and really more versatile than you may think! Gnome for the Holidays is a Christmas set, but with a few little tweaks, a few additional products and some fussy cutting, the gnomes are good to go for any season of the year!
Today I am sharing my fall version of Gnome for the Holidays!
This is the first card I made with this set! This is the card that started the wheels turning and got my creative juices flowing!
I started with the gnomes. For the green and orange gnome, all I had to do was trim trim off the ornament and the mistletoe hanging off his hat when I was cutting him out. I used Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Mossy Meadow Stampin' Blends to color him in, with a little Light Smoky Slate on his beard.
For the red gnome, I masked off the snowflakes on his hat. In order to mask off the snowflakes, I stamped the hat on the sticky side of a Post It Note. After cutting the hat out inside the hat lines , I stuck it onto the stamp and inked it up. Remember to remove the mask before you stamp! Then I stamped the image onto my cardstock and Voila! No snowflakes on my gnomie's hat! I used Poppy Parade and Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends on this guy!
To make the path coming from the tree, I tore a scrap of cardstock to get an uneven edge and held it in place where I wanted the path to be. Then I used a Sponge Dauber to lightly apply the ink-Crumb Cake for the path, and Old Olive for the grass.
I used Bronze and Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends for the trunk and Daffodil Delight Blends for the lights. The leaves are from the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set, colored with Cherry Cobbler, Real Red, Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pie Blends.
The Pumpkin are from the Gather Together Bundle.
Just an FYI-the Merry and Bright Online Extravaganza is happening now-today only (Nov. 24th). The Stampin' Blends are 10% off!
