Club Scrap Holiday Blog Hop!

Welcome to my stop on the Club Scrap Holiday Blog Hop! The featured stamps for the hop are from Club Scrap’s Gnome for the Holidays and I’ll be Gnome for Christmas. I ♥ these stamps!

I’m changing things up a little bit today, my husband coaxed me to make a video…

 Here’s a closer peek at Santa’s Workshop…

The triptych is from the Club Stamp Generations kit 2008. I painted it gold. The doors are Club Scrap cardstock embossed with the Cuttlebug using a Tim Holtz wood grain embossing folder. I heat embossed the candy canes and “watercolor” painted with Perfect Pearls mica powder. I have no idea where the brackets came from!

Inside Santa’s Workshop! This is where the magic happens. Papa Gnomie needs a spot to relax after all his hard work. He has his favorite comfy chair and a nice light to read his list by and check it twice! Mama Gnomie has some good hearty stew cooking over the fire while she wraps presents for all the good boys and girls!

Check out the fireplace. That is the stencil from Adobe 2010! I used Distress inks and Distress embossing powder so it looks and feels like brick. I free hand cut the fire and the logs. The kettle was cut from a Cricut cartridge and embossed with UTEE. I sprayed the fire with gold perfect pearls. The stockings are heat embossed and “watercolored” with Perfect Pearls powder.

Mama and Papa Gnomie! They like to dress in their finest for special occasions. Here they are in their Christmas attire!
 I stamped the “gnomies” and colored using the coordinating stencils. Stickles for bling. I used some flocking on his pants.

Papa’s comfy chair…

The background stamps are from Old World Christmas 2008. The candle image is from Holiday WOW 2010 and the chair I cut from a printed cut apart from the 2011 Welcome kit.

Every house has family portraits on the wall! These were done a loooooong time ago, see how young they look?! Papa said the tree needed a blinking star, even though Mama wanted a big bow. Don’t worry, she isn’t finished wrapping gifts yet!
 The tree is the stencil from Groovy Christmas! More Perfect Pearls watercoloring! The portraits are made with Spellbinders dies. Cool huh?

I had so much fun designing and putting this together! (Shhhhhh, I still haven’t decorated my own house for Christmas yet! The boxes are down from the attic though!) From our gnome to yours, Merry Christmas! 

Your next stop is Kay’s Keepsakes
