There's a new ThermOWeb and Gina K Designs Stamp n Stencil that's just been released! This adorable Gnome for the Holidays Stamp n Stencil is sold as a stamp, stencil, and die set all in one craft kit. You can use all of these products together with ThermOWeb goodies to make cute wintery cards!
The stamp set in the Gnome for the Holidays Stamp n Stencil Craft Kit pairs PERFECTLY with the dies and with the stencil! The dies allow you to cut all the pieces you need to build cute little gnomes and then you can stamp or stencil details onto the pieces to customize your little cuties! I die cut all the pieces I needed to build two gnomes, including two different styles of hats. I sprayed the back of the Gnome for the Holidays Stencil with a bit of Pixie Spray, lined up the corresponding patterns onto the die cut hats, and spread some Deco Foil Transfer Gel DUO over the stencil with a Stencil Pal.
The Transfer Gel DUO only needed to dry for an hour or two - the stenciled details use very little product. Once the Transfer Gel DUO changed from white to completely clear it's time to add some fun to the details! You can use Enamels, Flock, or Foil and I went for the shininess of Gold Deco Foil Transfer Sheets. I simply cut a piece of the Gold Foil and placed it "pretty side" up into the Transfer Gel DUO and ran the little hats through my die cutting machine. The pressure of the machine transfers the foil into the gel and I have pretty gold foiled dots and stripes for my gnome hats!
I stamped the mountain range from the Gnome for the Holidays Stamp Set a bit more than half way up my card using gray ink. I wanted to create some snowy hills in the foreground, so I used both sides of the bottom of the Gnome for the Holidays Stamp Set and blended on gray ink. I love flipping my stencil over on the back - you get so much more use out of the stencil! You can flip over your die cuts and have the hats pointing the other way, too!
To add some glam to the background I used the Gnome for the Holidays Stencil and added some Silver Glitz Glitter Gel to the mountains and some White Glitz Glitter Gel to the tops of the hills for a glittery snow effect.
I put together the gnomes using some iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive. This gives me just enough time to wiggle the pieces around before it holds on tight! I added the gnomes to the background with iCraft 3D Foam Squares for dimension and stamped a sentiment in the corner from the Gnome for the Holidays Stamp Set to finish this card. See you soon!
