Tomte Christmas Carols by Penny

Goodly morning peeps, I hope you are all well and not too wet lol!  It's my turn to share some craftiness with you today, another of my June CB samples.  Like my teamies I absolutely loved the set of Gnomes stamps and this was the first card I made with them.

Tomte Christmas Carols.

  I used stamps from the A Tomte Christmas and A Christmas Flourish sets; CB Masking Tissue, CB Luxury Smooth White paper, alcohol pens, Distress Ink, fluffy fake snow, a die, a stencil and an embossing folder from my stash and some silver gilding wax.     

I stamped a large gnome onto the smooth paper in grey Versafine ink, masked the image and stamped it twice more to create a group.  I removed the masking tissue then coloured the images in.
I took a die from my stash and cut a vintage style lamp post out of black card.  I also cut a single lantern and added silver gilding wax to the lamps.  I stamped some candles from the Christmas Garden set onto another piece of card.  I coloured the images and cut around them, then attached them to the back of the lamps.

I took a stencil from my stash and added rays of light with yellow DI.  I used the embossing folder with a piece of black card to create a border for the focal panel which I highlighted with silver wax.  I then attached the panel.  On spare card I stamped and embossed two sentiments then cut around them.  I attached them to the card and added some music notes, a single lantern hanging from a shepherds crook made from black card and some fluffy snow.

Santa Gnome's Bauble

I took a papier mache bauble from my stash and painted it both sides with dark blue and white acrylic paints to creat a snowy nightime scene.  I then took a piece of smooth white paper and stamped and embossed two images of gnomes, one with a reindeer and one with a sleigh.  I coloured them with alcohol pens then fussy cut them.   

I added some falling snow by dipping the end of a paint brush into white paint and dotting it randomly over the sky.  I added some glitter to the snow and attached the stamped images, one on each side.

Thank you for dropping in today, I hope that I've given you a few ideas for your Christmas makes!
I shall be back next month with some more crafty fun, in the meantime check out the projects of my teamies on this blog.

Take care,

  3. Two great Christmas makes Penny using the Tomte Gnomes and I love the carol singing gnomes with the lamps and lantern and the central one holding some music, just such fun, and the two smaller gnome images fit beautifully on the MDF bauble. Really cleverly done. x
