The Gnome for the Holidays stamp set from Stampin’ Up’s August–December 2020 Mini Catalog was a must have for me. I mean who doesn’t love a good gnome pun? Well, probably people who don’t like gnomes or people who don’t like puns, but I’m going to pretend that those people don’t exist and share my excitement about this set.
I found so many fabulous examples of cards made with this set on Pinterest and Stampin’ Up groups on Facebook. I CASEd many of them and still haven’t started designing my own. If you click the right arrow on the pictures of my cards, you can see the cards that inspired my designs.
First, I’m going to share a card inspired by this card made by Karla Anders. Her card uses traditional Christmas colors but I decided to jazz mine up by using the color scheme from the Snowflake Splendor product suite in Stampin’ Up’s August–December 2020 Mini Catalog.
Some day I’ll figure out how to photograph glitter paper well, but for now we’re stuck with this. Here’s my card:
My next card is inspired by one made by Garry-Pauline McArdle, a Stampin’ Up demonstrator from New Zealand. I switched up the design by using elements from the Snowflake Splendor product suite.
I brightened up the card by using Pacific Point paper. I didn’t have the pretty flocked vellum that Christy did, so I made due with plain vellum and a retired embossing folder called Scattered Sequins.Product List
