The Spot Challenge #125 - Sketch Challenge with Stampin' Up! Gnome For The Holidays

 Hi there!  Hope you are doing well this week!  I have finally used the adorable new Gnome For The Holidays Stamp Set this week.  It's been stacked on one of my craft tables for a week or so and every time I have seen it I knew I had to find a chance to use it soon.  It is just too adorable!  This week's sketch challenge over at The Spot seemed like the perfect opportunity!

Here's this week's Sketch..

I absolutely LOVE this sketch!  There are sooo many possiblities but as I said.. I need to ink up my Gnome For The Holidays Stamp set so here's what I made..

So I was thumbing through my Snowflake Splendor DSP when I saw this gorgous watercolored snowflake background, I was in loooooove!  It is absolutley gorgeous!  I used a Pacific Point 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" cardbase, scored at 4 1/4 for a top folding landscape card.  I matted my gorgeous DSP with a thin layer of Whisper White Cardstock and ran some of the beautiful Pool Party 3/8" sheer ribbon around the panel after it was attached to the card base.  I did a watercolor wash with Balmy Blue Ink onto a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Once dry, I used the largest of the Stitched Circle dies to cut it out.  The circle was attached with dimensionals onto the card front.  The gnomes were stamped onto  a scrap of Whisper White cardstock with Basic Gray Ink and colored in with my Stampin' Blends.  I used my paper snips to fussy cut the gnomes out and attached them to the circle with Multipurpose adhesive. I stamped the "you're a freind like gnome other" sentiment in Pacific Point ink onto a strip of Whisper White Cardstock and attached with Multipurpose adhesive over the gnome's feet and with a mini dimensional on each side of the circle.   Such a quick and easy card except for the little bit of coloring with my blends.  I find coloring pretty relaxing so I stamped them earlier and then brought them into the living room while Jeff and I were watching tv and colored them.  Multi-tasking at it's best.  I should have stamped multiple while I was coloring.... right?
