I caught a glimpse of these gnomes in my garden today. It’s nice to know they are guarding the earth’s treasures.
The three gnome’s creation began with hats from Ornate Garden Designer Paper, cut with a Paisley Die. The Paisley Die Set has retired, but you can see it in my Product List. I know some of you Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators save everything, so you will have it. The gnome’s nose is a Paisley Die also.
Next, was the beard, which is Whisper White Cardstock cut with a Nature’s Roots (leaf) Die. I glued the hat, the nose, and the beard together, and placed them on Dimensionals. If you turn their heads a bit, they can talk to each other.
The gnome’s body was made with the Balloon Bouquet Punch, and In Color 6X6 DSP in Terracotta Tile gingham.
The shoes were made with the Leaf Punch, and easily attached by just snipping one leaf from the middle. I decided to make their shoes Old Olive, after taking the picture.
Their background is a Thick Whisper White card base, embossed with the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder. I added a large circle, using a retired die, because of the Fusion challenge sketch.
“You made my day!” is from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set, stamped in Old Olive Ink, and cut with a Stitched Rectangles Die.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you see some gnomes running around on your crafting table!
