Using Stampin' Blends To Colour Christmas Gnomes

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate. Today I am bringing you the tutorial for the card I made for  the Ink Stamp Share Special Blog Hop. I have been practicing colouring with blends recently so decided to use blends on the Gnome For The Holidays set. I was really pleased with how this turned out. Such a cute set. I have used the stitched rectangles to frame the scene so cut the card base down so it fits nicely. These dies are sized for the US card stock size which is different to UK size. I do not always trim my bases down but with this card I thought it was worth doing.
