Is there any such thing as too many gnome card ideas?
Today Lisa is sharing a both cute and stunning fall version of gnome card ideas that we plan on keeping around forever! We hear all the time that our gnomes are the cutest out there with our Christmas Gnomes being fan favorites. Today, Lisa shows that these holiday forward fellas can be used for any season and we just love their message! Let’s look at how she made this card for us.
First, Lisa took a piece of fall colored paper she’d created in a previous project using her gel plate. She shares some great tips in previous projects here and here so if you haven’t checked them out, do! She gave our new Fall Leaf Stencil a spritz of Pixie Spray and pressed it down into her gel press panel.
She then applied some darker shades of Color Fuse Ink from Sets #1, #2 and #3 through the stencil over her print and before removing the stencil, splattered some Chroma Mist over the top in some autumn colors. She removed the stencil and let the panel dry completely.
While her stunning, rich background was drying she stamped all of the images from our Christmas Gnomes set and cut them out with our coordinating die. She played around with her images and when she’d chosen the ones she liked best for the card, she came up with a color combo she felt was complementary to all her textural colors in her background. Using those colors in Copics, she colored up her little pals.
Then she stamped part of a sentiment from our Thanks set into the little sign that comes in the Christmas Gnomes set. Lisa says “I love that this stamp is separate so it can be stamped and popped up over either of these two gnomes to hold or not!” She also stamped her “are” on a scrap of white card stock and trimmed it down closely.
Lisa then used our You Script With Shadow die set and cut the script portion from more of her gel plate pattern and the shadow from a scrap of dark brown card stock and adhered them together with liquid glue.
When her stenciled panel was completely dry, Lisa used a die from our Nested Rectangle Small Stitch set to cut it out and layered it over orange card stock with a 1/8″ border and then layered that onto her brown card base.
All she had left to do was to arrange her elements over her gorgeous background using varying thicknesses of dimensional adhesive to build the dimension she wanted.
What a great combination of luxury and whimsy! Here’s what Lisa used from the store so you know what you need to add to your shopping cart:
We are sure you are with us when you feel like you just can’t get enough gnome card ideas and we are so excited to have been able to see how Lisa made this one with the cuteness of the gnomes in starring roles and with that beautifully detailed background as the perfect setting.
