Hey Procraftinators! It's been a LONG time since I have shared any of my cards anywhere out on the web. I'm not making videos, currently, but I thought that I would maybe start sharing my cards here and on my social media for anyone that might be interested in taking a peek.
Today, I am sharing this adorable gnome card made with the Woodware
Crafts Collection Tree Gnome. He's just so cute wearing his Christmas
tree hat! I copic colored him and I am sorry, I did not take note of the
color combinations that I used. I just sat and enjoyed coloring him
watching TV one night. I wasn't really thinking that I would share him
so I did not bother taking note of what markers that I used. I used some
clear Nuvo drops over the ornaments on the tree, the candle flames and
the ornament that he is holding in his hand, after he was adhered on the
card. Normally, I would use glossy accents for this sort of thing, but
my bottle of glossy accents was really old and got too hard to squeeze
out of the bottle this year. So, I had to chuck it. I have another
bottle somewhere, but it's packed in a box. We are planning to move in
the next several months and unfortunately, I packed up a good majority
of my craft room much sooner than I should have. So, in a pinch, clear
Nuvo drops make an ok replacement for Glossy Accents.
Each gnome is mounted on a white panel that was dry embossed using the Argyle Socks embossing folder from Spellbinders, which was first cut using the largest of the Stitched Slimline dies from Pink and Main. After I embossed, I ink blended around each panel in a color that I felt contrasted, but coordinated well with each gnome. So, for instance the blue gnome got Crackling Campfire, the orange gnome got Salty Ocean, the purple gnome got Peacock Feathers and the teal gnome got Villainous Potion. Then, each panel was mounted on another panel that was 1/4in larger in a color that closely matched the gnome (as close as I could come, at least).
Next, I stamped one of the sentiments from the Tree Gnome stamp set and cut it out with one of the smaller dies from one of my A2 nesting rectangle die sets. I ink blending around the edges of each one of the sentiments in the color that matched the gnome (same ink colors as listed above). I had some leftover holographic snowflakes from another Christmas card project from some Spellbinders die sets: Deck the Halls and Holiday Decorations. I adhered everything flat.
