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!

Stampin’ Up!® Tree Angle for the Cardz4Guyz Challenge #259- Traditional Christmas

Hello and Happy Monday! I hope you all had a crafty weekend!

Today’s card satisfies two challenges: my own 15-Day Christmas Card Challenge and the Cardz4Guyz Challenge #259-Traditional Christmas.

I designed this card with a traditional color combination and slightly modern Christmas trees from the Stampin’ Up!® Tree Angle stamp set.

The Tree Angle stamp set is from the 2020 August-December Stampin’ Up!® Mini Catalog. Tuesday December 8 is the start of the Giant End of Year Close Out Sale! I listed the retiring products and discounts which you can download here:

Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS) card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches; Whisper White CS: 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches embossed with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder, 3 x 5 inches to die cut a stitched rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles Dies and also to cut 2 stitched triangles from the Stitched Triangles Dies; and Red Foil Sheet: two strips at 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches and 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches to die cut the stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

Using the Shaded Spruce ink stamp the sentiment “Joy & Cheer” onto the Stitched Rectangle Die Cut. For the Stitched Triangle Die-Cut Christmas Tree I tried both stamping first then die-cutting and die-cutting then stamping. Lining up the stamp on the cut Stitched Triangle is easier.

Stamp the inside of the Whisper White CS card base with the sentiment “Happy wishes to you and yours” in Shaded Spruce ink. Stamp the small group of ornaments in the upper right-hand corner first in Shaded Spruce ink, then in Real Red ink. Stamp the smaller triangle in Real Red ink on to the smaller Stitched Triangle Die-Cut.

Adhere the Red Foil 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch strips to the back of the Whisper White CS embossed with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. I use the Silicon Sheet to be sure the excess glue won’t stick to my table. Adhere this card piece to the front of the Whisper White CS card base.

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Red Foil stitched circle and stitched rectangle with the sentiment stamped on it.

To adhere the green Christmas Tree I applied two Stampin’ Dimensionals to the bottom and used the Multipurpose Glue on the top.

Adhere the red Christmas tree to the card front with the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

You guessed it-time for Bling!

I used the pick side of the Take Your Pick tool to transfer the Star Designer Elements and the putty side to transfer the small silver circle sequins in the Snowflake Sequins. I wanted to add a little snow to the snowflake background with the silver sequins.

And Viola! you have a Traditional Christmas card to send to your favorite guy!
