The Gnomes Dies make the cutest gnomes, don’t you think?  I spied a gnome yesterday morning, darting around in a Christmas tree lot, and he was a little upset that I found him. He asked if I could help him be camouflaged, so this is what we did:

His beard and nose were already cut from Basic White Cardstock, and his nose was colored with an Ivory Stampin’ Blend. I added his hat, cut from Regals 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper in Shaded Spruce plaid, and his pants and shoes, cut from Shaded Spruce Cardstock. He was pleased with his outfit, and confident he could hide among the trees.

Whimsical Gnome


The trees were embossed on Basic White Cardstock with the Whimsical Woodland Embossing Folder, and colored with a Blending Brush and Shaded Spruce Ink. To complete the tree lot, I glued the trees to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.


Next, the gnome told me how he loves this time of year, and wanted to make a sign for the tree lot. He said the Kindest Gnomes Stamp Set had the perfect words for his sign, “Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year.” Following his directions, I stamped the words on Thick Basic White Cardstock in Shaded Spruce Ink, and used a Natural Prints Die for cutting.

I even decorated the bottom of the sign with three, Fine Sparkle Gems, per request. As soon as the gnome approved the sign, he said thank you, and scurried away. I don’t know if we’ll see him again before Christmas. But, everyone who comes to this tree lot will feel welcomed by his sign.


I was inspired by TGIF.
