Cuteness Overload

Simon Says Stamp has a stencil for the insanely popular Gnomes.  While I have already made some cards with the “sold out” large Gnome die, that I ordered for and stole from Sandra, this time I wanted a one-layer rather than pieced Gnome.

Using the stencil involved some extensive masking.  I may end up making my own layered stencil to avoid having to do all this masking in the future.  In the meantime, after a couple of ruined cards with some stray ink on them, I got it right.

This card is just so stinkin’ cute, that I am sure I will be making more.

I used the Swirls background die from Concord and 9th which just tucked around the Gnome perfectly.  Sequins from Lucie’s Little Things and some glittery Nuvo drops complete the card.  His nose is made with transparent pink Nuvo drops and gives perfect colour and dimension.

  1. Very cute Deb! What did you use to get the texture on his beard?

    • Very observant of you. I used this texture paste from Stamperia, that I got from Scrapendipity Orderz. I just ordered it not knowing anything about it, but knowing that Stamperia makes quality stuff. It smells just like the spackle you would use to stipple a ceiling. The nice thing is you can spread it as thin or as thick as you want. It is meant to be slathered on as snowy, textured hills, but it worked nicely for this as well.
