Christmas Greetings, Poppy Peeps! Are you a fan of gnomes? Jolly 'ol bearded folk that bring. a smile every time. I've brought you a couple of cards using the new Poppystamps Whittle Gnome.
For the background oval I used a die to create a stencil.
I die cut Snowflake Flurry Collage with a heavy piece of cardstock, this one is vellum. Then lightly sprayed the back with Pixie adhesive. The die cut can be used successfully twice. Then if you need more, cut another stencil.The image creates a great textured background.
This card was stenciled with Ranger Stickles Glitter Gel. My gnome has a felt cap with red felt brim and pom. His beard is the fun part! I applied Fun Flock (Stampendous) onto wet glue, added more glue and sprinkled on glitter and mica flakes. It's a 'snow' I've had for a long time and use for background photos at Christmastime. Gnomes' nose is cut from pink shimmer.
See his sprig on his cap brim? That's the top piece of Poppystamps Pine Needle Shoots.
Card 2 has my gnome with a red felt cap and white felt brim and pom. This time the background stencil is with opaque paste with the Stickles mixed in.
Don't you love his fuzzy blingy beard? See the snowflake on hat brim? It's a piece of the die cut with Fairy Sugar. If you like the Oval Frame, it's created with Poppy's Basic Oval Set. Peeps I've use that die set so many times! One of those 'must haves!'
2 Christmas cards with the new Whittle Gnome. Such a fun die to dress up for any season!
