Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Gallery- November 2022- Stampin’ Up!® Fitting Florets with the Kindest Gnomes

I am delighted to be participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight Gallery with Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world today! The theme for the Gallery is “Thank You”. We often forget those simple words – Thank you. It is so important to show your appreciation to the people in your lives who have inspired you, helped you, and supported you by sending them a thank you card.

This cute little gnome really makes this fall thank you card fun. The background is from the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper (DSP). The gnome hat is made with the Celebrate Everything DSP. The leaves and oval are from the Framed Florets Dies which is part of the Fitting Florets Collection that just came out.

Stampin’ Up!® Punch Art Gnome Using the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch and Stitched Triangle Dies

Greetings! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful day. I have a little Stampin’ Up! Punch Art Gnome to brighten your day if you need it! This card is for The Paper Players Challenge PP 568 CAS(Clean and Simple) Gnomes or Fairies.

My Gnome Punch Art Card

I did not have any stamps with gnomes or fairies. I decided to try to make a gnome with Punch Art. Punch Art used to be the art of making images using the Stampin’ Up! punches. However, right now there are not many punches in basic shapes like circles, squares and triangles. But there are many shapes in the Stampin’ Up! Dies that can be used!

The face and the boots are made from the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch. The black lines are where I cut the punch. The little pompom for the gnome hat is from the Pierced Blooms Dies. The remaining pieces are different sizes of triangles from the Stitched Triangle Dies. The face is Blushing Bride Card Stock (CS). For the hat I used the Tidings of Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (DSP). The boots are made with Early Espresso CS and the body is made with Soft Succulent CS. The beard and the pompom are in Basic White CS.

Assembly

First place the triangle for the body on the card front to be able to position the boots. After adhering the boots, use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the body. Trim off the very tip of the triangle for the body.

Slide the white beard triangle under the “nose”. Then adhere the hat. Position the Stampin’ Dimensionals as shown.

Adhere the face with the beard and hat over the body. Stamp your greeting. I used the greeting from the Joyful Life stamp. The greeting is stamped in Soft Succulent ink.

Adhere the card front to a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of the Christmas Tidings DSP. Finish the card by adhering this piece to the front of an 11 x 4 1/4 inch Basic White CS card base.

Voila! A cute gnome is created for a whimsical holiday card! Stop by The Paper Players Challenge PP568 to see more cards made in the “Clean and Simple” style with gnomes or fairies.

I hope this card has brightened your day a little if you needed it. Stop by tomorrow for a 3D Thanksgiving shaker card made with the Stampin’ Up! Cloche Shaker Dome!
