A Trio of Gnomes

Hi my friends, apologies in advance for sharing yet another project featuring those adorable gnomes from Simon Says Stamp but I had 3 of the white bases left over from the fundraising production line and I wasn't going to waste them, so I made another card with the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Mini Weathered Winter stamp set and the Idea-ology Christmas papers and Design Tapes still sitting on my workdesk.
I trimmed Tim Holtz Idea-ology Christmas paper from last year's collection to measure 4.1/4" x 8", added a mix of last year's and the latest Christmas Design Tapes and stamped the snowflakes from Mini Weathered Winter, inked with Versamark and heat embossed with Ranger Superfine White Embossing Powder.
I die-cut the hats for the gnomes from Simon Says Stamp Schoolhouse Red card, added the waste dots from the body section on one and doodled stripes and checks with a Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen on the other two.
I die-cut the noses and beards from white card and coloured with Worn Lipstick and Ground Espresso Distress Oxide inks using a mini round blending tool.
I inked the sentiment from Merry Misfits with Versamark, stamped on to a strip of Schoolhouse Red card and heat embossed with Ranger Superfine White Embossing Powder.
I trimmed around the beards leaving a small border, fixed the gnomes and sentiment to the panel, added glossy accents to the noses and matted on to a white card blank measuring 4.1/2" x 8.1/4" and hey this must be one of the quickest cards I've ever made.
Have a great weekend everyone and I'll be back on Sunday to share a sneaky peek from the Sizzix Blog of a project I made using Tim Holtz Chapter 4 dies and on Monday to share my DT project for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and I promise it won't feature GNOMES.
Toodle-oo for now
