gnomie fun

Although I have a few gnome stamps none are specific to Christmas so I improvised. The gnome with the green hat originally held a garden spade which I cut off and replaced with the tree. The other gnome is more generic so I left him as is. I used an MFT stitched circle die to create the apertures and backed it with some gold plaid PP. This was added using foam tape so the front panel is slightly lifted. Gnomes were stamped cut and coloured before popping into the circles. Stamp sets are from MFT, SSS, Woodware and Gina K. I fussy cut the tree and the gifts and all are coloured with Inktense pencils and a Sakura glitter pen. I also used some snowflake stamps from the Gina K set to stamp faint snowflakes on the white panel. The plaid is slightly stronger in the background than I realized initially so I decided not to add any embellishments to this card.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope the weather in your corner of the world is beginning to be pleasant.

    1. Improvisation is the way to go when one doesn’t have the right stamps. I love that paper myself and it is funny because when I really like paper I have a hard time cutting it.


    1. Thanks – I like that background paper a lot too. Altering an image is a good way to use a stamp that isn’t quite right for the theme.
