Gnome for the Holidays! Watercolor Card Using December 2019 Card Kit

Hi all! Kristina Werner here. Today I have a fun card for you made using the December 2019 card kit, which has both a new stencil and stamp set! The Gnome For the Holidays stamp set has adorable gnomes, and the Christmas Gnome Home stencil is perfect for creating a background scene for the gnomes.

I started by using the stencil to pencil a design on watercolor paper. Then I used Paper Fashion watercolors to paint the background.

The gnomes from the stamp set were stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink, painted using the same watercolors, and then “fussy cut” using scissors.

To finish off the card, I created a greeting area by watercoloring a red color over watercolor paper (creating my own DIY colored paper), and embossed the greeting using white embossing powder.

Also included in the kit are mini action wobbles! I put a wobble behind each of the gnomes and adhered them to the card. So cute!

Thanks for stopping by! You can pick up with December 2019 card kit HERE, or subscribe to receive the card kit each month HERE.

The Magic of Christmas: Limited Edition 2019 Holiday Kit

Hi friends! TGIF! ‘Tis the season for our highly anticipated Limited Edition 2019 Holiday Card Kit! This year it’s lovingly titled, The Magic of the Season! This kit was lovingly assembled with the traditional crafter in mind that gives a tip of the hat to classic colors or red and green, rich plaids, classic Santas, classic winter botanicals, and MORE!

Please note that this card kit is not part of our monthly card kit subscription. Even if you are a subscriber, you must purchase this kit separately if you would like to.

While we are pleased to offer many pieces of this kit individually, like our brand NEW The Magic of Christmas stamp set, this kit packs a major VALUE in buying as a set and is only available in a smaller batch while supplies last!
