Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes!

Hey there! Today I have another one of the cards we made at my Christmas in July in August class last weekend. This card was inspired by a swap I received from Laura Milligan with the Kindest Gnomes Bundle of stamps and dies and Storybook Gnomes Designer Paper. It's so cute!


One of the few changes I made from Laura's creation was to cut the gnome's hat and boots from Poppy Parade card stock. On Laura's original she used Calypso Coral, which did coordinate just fine, but the Poppy Parade just POPS more against the Storybook Gnomes Designer Paper print in the background and looks a little bit more "Christmas-y".

I cut 24 packets of each card for my class. I usually let my stampers cut everything out themselves with the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine, but I had Darcy (she's 7) visiting me a few days before class so I had her cut out all of the noses for these adorable little men from Petal Pink card stock. One thing I really like about these dies is the detail they add with the stitching around the hat, the texture to the beard, and the extra touches to the boots! We added a couple of snippets of Balmy Blue & White 3/8" Double-Stitched Ribbon to his hat with glue dots, then cut the ends at an angle to give the look of feathers. A Balmy Blue Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gem is this finishing touch.


The Poppy Parade-stamped greeting is from Kindest Gnomes, cut with a Seasonal Labels Die.


Inside we kept the stamping simple, with another Kindest Gnomes sentiment and a gnome down in the corner, all in Poppy Parade ink. I of course stamped the envelope!
