Stampin’ Up! Mistletoe Gnome For The Holidays

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  We’re halfway through the week and heading to the weekend already.  Hope you are having a very productive week. Yesterday was my only day off this week and boy did I hit the ground running when I got up.  I was non stop all day from around 6am till almost midnight.  My boss is always teasing me that I come to work to relax.

I have a fun card for you today using one of my favorite sets from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My sketch is from Sunday Stamps Time To Get Sketchy Challenge #240.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of ‘Tis The Season Designer Series Paper to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I cut another panel of ‘Tis The Season DSP using the 5th largest Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered it to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal.  I then adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the adorable gnome image from the Stampin’ Up! Gnome For The Holidays Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Gray Granite, Ivory and Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker. I cut the image out using the 2nd largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut  a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Dies from a panel of Garden Green cardstock and adhered the artwork to it using Stampin’ Seal.  I cut a strip of ‘Tis The Season DSP and adhered it to the top section of the card front using Glue Dots.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Gnome For The Holidays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and adhered it to the bottom portion of the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few of the clear epoxy droplets from the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Gnome For The Holidays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered 2 strips of ‘Tis The Season DSP to the sides of the panel using Stampin’ Seal.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the gnome image from Gnome For The Holidays stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of ‘Tis The Season DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
