This gnome is so kind and gentle that I thought he would make a perfect companion for December. In a month when it’s easy to get lost in Things To Do and Places To Go, holding out a light to help someone find their way seems like a perfect message for this month.
- Stamps: Peaceful Deer, Kindest Gnomes, Friends are Like Seashells (stars)
- Color Palette: Basic White, Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake, Real Red, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Smokey Slate, Basic Gray
- Accessories: Big Boss, Gnome dies, Paper Snips, Stampin’ Blends, Stampin’ Dimensionals
It was a happy accident when I realized the images from Peaceful Deer were in perfect scale to use with Kindest Gnomes. The result is a Winter Wonderland feeling, and though it doesn’t really represent living on an island in the middle of the Pacific, it does represent my desire to slow down when things get overwhelming.
I colored the gnome’s beard and used the Color Lifter to create a softer (dare I say gentler?) beard. The light in his lantern is layered so it seems to glow. And when I colored the bunny I left a white patch on the chest and of course the cottontail!
(HINT: The Gnomes BUNDLE is retiring, but the dies will carry over into the spring. That means the Gnome stamps are retiring but there just might be a new coordinating set of stamps in January. Get the bundle and save. IYKYK.)
