Welcome to the National Coffee Day/Week 2021 Blog Hop
Hello Crafty Friends!!
Larissa here today to share a SWEET There’s Gnome Place like Home for the Holidays w/ Coffee Card using some of the NEW Gina K Designs Products that are SURE to make your Holiday Cards SHINE this Holiday Season!!
I Started by creating the Card Panel using Distress Oxide Inks in Salvaged Patina and Hickory Smoke!! I added some Water Splatter for some Dimension!!
Next, I Created the Sweet Christmas Tree using the coordinating Dies and Die Cutting the Tree from some Green Envy Deco Foil Flock Sheets after I adhered the Green Envy Deco Foil Flock to a Piece of Green Cardstock using the Easy Cut Adhesive Sheets and running it through my Die Cutting Machine to burnish it into the adhesive!! I peeled back the Protective Sheet and Die Cut the Tree!! It die cuts like Butter!!
Next, I Sprayed the backside of the coordinating Stencil with some Pixie Spray and applied it over the Die Cut Tree!! Then I applied some Lovely Lavender Gina K. Designs Glitz Glitter Gel using my Stencil Pal and Set it aside to Dry!!
Once Dry I replaced the Stencil over the Tree Die Cut lining up the Ornaments and applied the Gina K. Designs Iridescent Glitz Glitter Gel and set it aside to dry!!
I started with the negative to the Gina K. Designs Turquoise Sea Fancy Foils that was a Negative leftover from one of her older Basket Weave Foil-Mates!! I placed it over a Deco Foil Toner Sheet and ran it through my Laminating Machine!!
I removed the Film and then cut a Piece of the Gina K. Designs Twinkling Pink Fancy Foil and placed it over the Foiled Deco Foil Toner Sheet and ran it back through the Laminating Machine!!
SWOON!! I LOVE this Color Combo and the FUN Pattern!! Again, KEEP that Negative Foil and repeat the process to create the reverse of this Design, or switch it up by using a different color for a completely different look!! ENDLESS Possibilities!!
I chose to use the Negative Twinkling Pink Fancy Foil and placed it over a piece of Deco Foil Toner Sheets and ran it through my Laminating Machine!! Then I removed the Film and cut a piece of the Gina K. Designs Glittering Green Fancy Foil and placed it over the Foiled Deco Foil Toner Sheet and ran in through my Laminating Machine again!!
Next, I created the Outfits for the Gnomes and I wanted to add some texture to them so I used the coordinating Stencil to add some Patterns!! (TIP: This Stencil really isn’t designed to use with the outfits, but remember to think OUTSIDE of the Box and use the different patterns for the outfits or for other FUN Textural Elements for your Cards/Projects)
Once I Die Cut the Beards I added some Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink using a Blender Brush to add some Shading!! Then I added some Copic Marker Details to add the look of Hair Strands!! I LOVE how it really makes them POP!!
Here’s a close-up look at these CUTIES Put together!! Again I Die Cut both of the Hats and the Shoes from the FUN Patterned Foiled Sheets that we created!! SWOON!! I just LOVE the Colors and Pattern as it really gives these Gnomes LOTS of Personalities!! I adhered some coordinating Mini Jingle Bells to the ends of the Hats for some extra Sparkle and Holiday Cheer!! Then I adhered some of the Coffee Cups that I Die Cut from the NEW Gina K. Designs Stamp-n-Stencil Craft Kit: Gnome for the Holidays Festive Fall Add-On Set!!I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment from the sentiment using Versa Fine Black Onyx Ink and WoW Neutral Shimmer Embossing Powder!! I just LOVE that Iridescent Sparkle!!Here’s the Finished Card!! I hope I’ve INSPIRED you today with some ways to use up those Negative Foil Pieces you might have in your stash, and if you don’t have any you can create your own with Stencils, Toner Patterned Papers, or even just my using the Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo!! So many options!!
