Hey all, Cristina here with you today! You know how much I love Gnomes! I am so excited that Rubbernecker Stamps has just released this week Winter Gnomes! They are so darn cute, and make the perfect holiday card! I love them to bits.
I had to get them on a card right away so I could show them to you all. They are named Michael, Thomas, William, and Andre.
I just lined them up as if they were standing for one of my mother-in-law’s photos at Christmas time haha! I needed some texture.. you know how I am so I used one of the new stencils in the background, Mixed Circles Stencil. Although the Mixed Circles Stencil looks more like bubbles to me so I love it. Two of my favorite things in the world… gnomes and bubbles!
I also used some of my wooden snowflakes that I purchased 2 years ago thinking “ooo I can use this on…. ” but then never used them haha! So I rescued them from the jar they were in and put a few on this card. I am hoping to use a few more of them in the future.
In one of the photos above you can see that I used some Nuvo drops. I love those as well they are so fun because you can make them any size that you want. I also used them on Winter Gnome Michael’s hat. I originally had colored them to look fuzzy like the brim of his hat but then I just had to use the Nuvo drops.
The sentiment I used I thought was perfect for winter gnomes and Christmas alike. I used the “Magic of the season” sentiment. It is a bit older but it is a wonderful sentiment and one of my favorites for Christmas cards.
I actually used 2 different die cuts to get this banner the right size for the sentiment. I first used the Stitched Tags to cut the sentiment out because the Stitched Banner die cuts were to short or to thick. But I still used the Stitched Banner die to do the flags end.
Here is a little bit of a better look at the boy’s hats. I had so much fun coloring them. I love how the artist drew them making it easy to see where the folds in their hats would be for coloring.
Here is one last good look at all of them together.
The Copic markers I used for these cute winter gnomes are:
Reds: R05, 27, 29, 59
Greens: YG05, 03, 01, Y11
Oranges: YR12, 14
Blacks: C3, 5, 7
Fuzzy hat brims: C00, 1, 3
Beards: W4, 2
Blues: B00, 02
