Gnomes for Christmas

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How was your weekend? I hope you did something nice. We went to stay in Wells so that we could visit the Crafts 4 Crafters show at the Bath and West Showground in Shepton Mallet - I had won tickets. On the way there we stopped off to visit Stourhead. The garden was beautiful in its Autumn colours. All in all it was a good weekend.

I bought the magazine with the free Enchanted Corner Gnome outline stamp and die set some time ago. I decided it was time to use this set after seeing so many gorgeous cards on Facebook made with the stamps and dies.

I decided to make A5 cards that are nice and flat for posting. The paper was from my stash. The topper I placed the gnomes on was from a stack from Kanban. I have been struggling to know how to use up these toppers. There are still a lot left. 

The gnomes were stamped onto card with grey memento ink and coloured with Promarkers. I used the dies that came with the set to cut out the gnomes and their hands. 

The sentiment is one from Creative Expressions. 

Here is one of my photos from Stourhead. We were very lucky with the weather the garden was so pretty. We did go back on the Sunday to visit the house. The car park was so busy we had to park some way away in an overflow car park which meant a long walk to the house. 

I made six for my Christmas card stash. This year I don't really know how many I will need but I am going to keep making them. 

Enjoy the week ahead. I know some people are on half term holiday. I have a few things lined up and the drive should be finished. Next weekend is going to be busy but more of that later. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
