Greetings! Gnomes seem to be all the rage right now, so many of you may really love this “Gnome Love” stamp from Stampendous. It definitely works for a Christmas stamp, but you can also use it for other things, depending on your color palette. I opted to go with pastels, which opens up the possibilities for what the card can be used for. My full instructions are below. Plus, read through the entire post to see how you can win a set of Holiday Gnomes (a different stamp set) from Stampendous.
