Hey everyone! Angela back, with a fun card featuring Gnoel, one of the July digital stamps. I printed the version that has both the gnome but also the sentiment and cut down to a rectangle. Next I printed the gnome with the ornament and cut with my scan n cut.
Once cut colored with copics-
Skin- E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair and Mustache: W1, W3, W5
Hat: RV29, RV69, R35, R37, N1, N3, N5
Ornament: G05, G17, G28, YG09
Shoes: T1, T3, T5
Next I cut a pieces of cardstock down for a slimline card. I inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Next I cut pattern papers from the Simple Stories Simple Vintage Christmas to make my various layers. I inked all papers with the same walnut stain ink.
I used foam tape to pop the Gnome up on the card and add some dimension. I then added some enamel dots to the corners to add the finishing touches to the card.
I hope you enjoyed my card- and don’t forget the sale going on- 60% off stamps, dies, stencils and embellishments.

This set is jam packed with Ten Little Gnomes that you can mix and match. Christine Okken shows off exactly what I mean. Two sweet gnomes gather around a mushroom to wish you “hello”. Christine also uses our NEW Grassy Patches CutUps Die and sets the whole thing against a Snowglobe CutUps.
Along with the gnomes our Welcome Gnome Stamp Set features stars, a cloud and a large mushroom, as well as other accessories and sentiments to go with. If you have an electronic cutting machine, we have the FREE Cutting Files for this set so there is no need to buy a die set.
Getting ready for Valentine’s Day? Kerry Urbatch creates this lovely card featuring a tag full of gnomes. She adds the heart to the gnome’s hat for even more cuteness. The little gnome in front uses the grassy patch for cover.
Nancy Thomas’ card is so darling she masks out the using sitting gnome and the mushrooms to give this card depth. A string of hearts stamped on the gnome on the left personalizes this card even further.
I am such a fan of this card from Brenda Nakandakari . She welcomes the new kid on the plot with this darling card. She cuts dotted designer paper using one of the NEW Grassy Patches and uses it as a background for this two adorable gnomes.

Who wants a Trick if you can have a Treat? That’s what I always say. Stick a “gnome” in there, and it’s a no brainer.
I’ve been loving all the gnomes EVERYWHERE! So, I decided to create these sweet treat holders with gnomes in mind. (If you don’t have a crimper, add glue with the tape)
I started with a 6” x 6” sheet of Christmas paper and added double-sided tape to three sides on the “bad/other” side of the paper to form a “u” .
Join the bottom of the “u” to the other side forming a tube.
Then, insert into a crimper and crimp about 1/2” and fold over.
Fold the bottom of the tube together and crimp trying not to place the first crimp from #2 in the center
Add the treat, and press the top of the tube together at a 90 degree angle from the bottom and crimp
It’s that simple. Now you can spend your time decorating. I used our Beard CutUps Die and embossed it with our Woodgrain Stencilz to give the impression of hair. Place the beard in the bottom section of the holder with the top part of the treat holder forming the hat.
I added a nose cut from our Rudolph die, but you can use an oval or circle punch. I put the nose over the mouth hole in the beard, so the mustache became eyebrows. Then, embellish to your heart’s content. For this gnome, I finished it off with a felt Poinsettia and button.
I think that gnomes are not just for Christmas, so I created a couple of different gnomes for different times of year.
Here’s my Halloween Gnome. I added a spooky eye sticker and big black nose.
How about a gnome for your sweetie? I had this metal embellishment and added “hands” made from folded black ovals. A plaid bow completes the look.
Spring is Gnoming. This sweet gnome has a plaid bow and felt flower for his hat.
