MFT Stamps | Gnome for the Holidays – September Release Countdown Day 3

September 4, 2021

Hello crafty friends! I have a fun stamp set to share with you for Day 3 of the MFT Stamps September Release Countdown! We’re halfway through the countdown and we still have a lot of cute new products to share with you!

I created a festive Christmas slimline card featuring the new Gnome for the Holidays Stamp Set. I don’t know about you, but these cute little gnomes remind me of the cute little M&M characters that you sometimes see on commercials during the holidays lol. I stamped all of my images onto a sheet of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copic Markers, and used the coordinating Gnome for the Holiday Die-namics to cut them out.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Reds: R14, R46, R89
  • Greens: YG01, YG07, YG17, YG67
  • White: 0, C00, C1, C3
  • Arms & Legs: W5, W7
  • Noses: E000, E11

For my card background, I trimmed another piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock to 3.5″ x 8.5″ and blended a section of it with Evergreen Bough and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Inks. I covered the top portion of my card with a piece of scrap paper and lightly splattered the ink blended portion with some diluted Opaque White Paint to resemble snow. Once dry, I then diecut this piece with the Slimline Double Stitched Rectangle Die-namics.

Next, I cut another piece of Smooth White Card Stock to 8.5″ X 2″. I diecut the top portion of this piece with the Stitched Slimline Snow Drifts Die-namics. Once finished, I diecut this piece again with the Slimline Double Stitched Rectangle Die-namics so that the base of my snow drift would match with the base of my ink-blended piece. I stamped my sentiment onto my snow drift with black ink prio to adhering it to my card base with 3D Foam Adhesive Tape. I then layered my entire base piece with a 3.5″ x 8.5″ piece of Field Day Prestige Card Stock. Lastly, I added my images with more 3D Foam Adhesive Tape for lots of dimension.

    I giggled as I looked at this card, such cute gnomie characters. They could get into a lot of mischief! Your coloring looks fantastic. Thank you for sharing the Copic color combos you use. It really helps me learn more about what works well together. Your card design is always top notch, too. Thanks so much for sharing. 🙂
