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.

  1. I haven’t pulled out my mini-wobblers for a while! I need to do that again. Love this card, so so cute. And your water colouring is amazing!

  2. Cute card! I love the scene you created with the stencil- beautiful watercoloring! I really enjoy using action wobblers on cards!

  3. Never been a big gnome fan, but that may change now! This card is adorable! It is somewhat deceptive, though. Kristina makes that water coloring look easy! Ha! She’s just so good at it!

  4. This is so cute! I love how the backdrop is sort of soft to give it the depth you might find in a photograph. Beautiful, Christina!
