No Place Like Gnome Holiday Cards
Do you love to color?  I do!  It's very relaxing for me. Today's cards are perfect for coloring and they are completely adorable! I created these fun recessed window style cards to really spotlight the colorful scene.

Layered Basics—There are several layers for this card, beginning with a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Shaded Spruce that's mounted onto a Whisper White Thick card base. The scene is stamped on a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of Whisper White and recessed behind a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Whisper White with a Stitched Shapes oval die-cut window.

Colorful Scene—I stamped the tree trunk Gnome For The Holidays image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the Whisper White backdrop, then colored it with Stampin' Blends Markers. You can watch the LIVE Class Replay for tips on how to achieve the shaded look with these awesome markers. Here are the colors I used:
  • Light Crumb Cake for tree trunk, shaded with Light Soft Suede.
  • Light bulbs in Shaded Spruce, Old Granny Apple Green and Balmy Blue, with Smoky Slate bases.
  • Leaves and grass in Old Olive.
  • Pebbles and path in Gray Granite.

I extended the grass and pathway down the piece, so that it fills up the oval window nicely. Once the coloring was done, I popped up the window layer over the top, then adhered both layers to the card front with SEAL Adhesive.

Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the Gnome For The Holidays sentiment in Memento Black ink onto a 3-3/4" x 3/4" strip of Pear Pizzazz, then adhered the ends so the strip is positioned over the oval.

Nice Gnome—I stamped the gnome image in Memento Black onto Whisper White, then colored it with similar Blends Markers.
  • The hat is colored with Shaded Spruce, Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green.
  • Mistletoe is in Granny Apple Green and Shaded Spruce.
  • His outfit is Shaded Spruce with Granny Apple Green shoes.
  • His face is Petal Pink and his beard has Smoky Slate accents.
  • The ornament is Granny Apple Green and Balmy Blue

I hand-cut the image and adhered it to the side of the oval and standing on the Pear Pizzazz strip.

I finished by adding a few Rhinestone Jewels around the oval.

Two Cool—For the second card, I tried the same scene with a horizontal card. I swapped out the Shaded Spruce accent layer for Real Red.

Sweet Scene—This time, I added light bulbs in Shaded Spruce, Mango Melody and Real Red. The gnome is dressed in Real Red and Old Olive, and the ornament is Real Red and Shaded Spruce.

One More—During the LIVE Class, I created a vertical with a Real Red layer, and this one is the card that will be included in the 5-Card LIVE Kit.
