As soon as I saw these adorable little gnomes in the Stampin’ Up August-December Mini Catalog, I knew I had to own them. And I’ve been playing with this set ever since, really.
In fact, I designed my October Stamp Club Class around it because I loved it so much. (Registration for that class is open for just one more day!).
But, it is so much more than Christmas… I paired it with a sentiment from the Dino Days stamp set, and we have a super fun and festive Valentine’s Day card (I know, I know — I’m super early — but this is really the only time you can say that about me!).
But what I want you to pay close attention to on this card is actually the detailed heart dies that are in the background.
That die is amazing, and adds such pizzazz to a card, but if you’ve ever fussed with trying to glue a detailed die-cut down using liquid adhesive, you know that it can be a real challenge. Enter in the Stampin’ Up Self-Adhesive sheets! I’m sharing a video on this below — but let me just tell you these little beauties are a GAME. CHANGER. for your detailed dies.
Essentially, you apply the sticker sheet to your cardstock before you run it through your die-cutting machine, and then when you’re finished, the die-cut becomes a giant sticker where you can basically peel off the back and attach to your project.
