Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
I hope you all have a wonderful day with good food and family! Today I am sharing my Spring version of the Gnomes for all Seasons! This one was a fun card to make!
The stamp set with all of these adorable gnomes is called Gnome for the Holidays. It is such a fun Christmas Set, but there is so much potential for other occasions! Here are a few instructions for making this card!
I used a large circle from the Layering Circles Dies to cut a circle into a scrap piece of paper measuring 4 x 5 1/4 inches to create a mask. Using Washi tape, secure the the mask to the back of a 4 x 5 1/4 inch piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Use Sponge Daubers to create the background, Granny Apple Green Ink for the grass, Crumb Cake for the path and Balmy Blue for the sky. I also sponged some Granny Apple Green very lightly where the leaves of the tree would be. Remove the mask.
The flowers framing the circle are from the Menagerie Dies colored with Stampin' Blends, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight. Save some of the punched out petals and circles from the die! I used them to create the flowers on the girl gnome's hat and apron!
I also used Stampin' Blends to color in the gnomes. I wanted a soft look for spring so I used Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends, pool party, Highland heather, Flirty Flamingo and So Saffron. Ivory for the skin and Flirty Flamingo for the nose and cheeks! I created a new hat For the girl gnome and cut them both out with Paper Snips. The trunk is colored with Soft Suede Stampin' Blends And the lights are colored with So Safron.
The sentiment was created using the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker. First I colored in 'you're' and then stamped it. After cleaning off the stamp, I inked colored in 'like gnome other' then stamped that on, being careful to line it up correctly.
There you have it! Tune in on Friday for the Summer gnome card!
Now go have some more pumpkin pie!
