Step 1 – Diecut Nested Tags 2 times using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a Bone Folder score at 11/16″ to one of the diecuts. Apply Kid’s Choice to the upper part of the score line and place the 2nd diecut on top. (You now have a Tag Card)

Step 2 – Optional – Place a stencil from Planner Stencil 2 on top of the card front and apply ink of your choice using a blender brush.

Step 3 – Diecut Warm Winter Mug in various colors of cardstock, diecut Gnomes (hearts) and Monster 2 (flowers). Assemble and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 4 – Stamp Holiday Treats using Versafine Onyx Black Ink on Soft Yellow Cardstock. Diecut the sentiment using the Fitted Fishtails.

Be Mine Mini Slimline Card

January 10, 2023

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Happy New Year! I wish you all a healthy and happy 2023. This is my first blog post for the new year. I can’t believe it. The next holiday to look forward to is Valentine’s Day. Below you will find a card using the Gnomes Dies, Dotted Background Die and the Love Sentiments Stamps from Joset Designs.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish 110 lbs to 7″ x 6″, score at 3 1/2″ and fold in half for a horizontal top fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish 110 lbs to 3 3/8″ x 5 7/8″. Apply Inks of your choice using colors Fuchsia, Lt. Red, Lt. Orange and Yellow. Set aside to dry.

Step 3 – Diecut Dotted Background using a scrap piece of cardstock to use as a stencil. Place it on top of the panel created in Step 2. Apply Texture Paste Translucent Gloss, remove the stencil. Quickly add some Soft Microfine Glitter Cool Diamond before the Paste dries. This will secure the Glitter. Let dry then adhere to the card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 4 – Diecut Gnomes using White Soft Finished Cardstock 110 lbs. Color in using any color medium of your choice. I used Copics. Be sure to only use the same colors for your background. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 5 – Stamp Love Sentiments using Ink in a Fuchsia color. Place the Gnomes on the card front first before stamping to make sure the positioning will not hide the sentiment. Once the sentiment is stamped adhere the Gnomes using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 6 – Optional – For added interest apply some Shimmer to the glasses and flower center using a Shimmer Pen.

This card can be used for several occasions by simply changing the colors and sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Merry Day After Christmas

December 26, 2022

Karen here hoping your Christmas Day was filled with love and good memories. There’s no better way to preserve those memories than in a scrapbook! Creating pages using the Planner Essentials line is easy and fun! Today’s pages are for Day 25 of my December Day-by-Day album! (I created these pages right before Christmas, so I’ll add pictures to them later…)

I used a Planner Essentials 55 (over a Planner Essentials 4) for the front of the page. How fun are these file folder pockets. I added a strip of paper to each of the tops of the pockets and dotted the bottom to make sure they stood out. I used the Library Pocket Filler Cards (one of them is cut down to fit the page) for the tags and added the small heart from the Gnomes set to keep the cards from slipping down. I’ll add pictures to the tags soon. And, of course, you can see that I added a sweet Gnome too! That fun ribbon is from a present someone wrapped for me. I didn’t yet open the present, but I had to steal the ribbon off of it.

On the back of the page is a space for more pictures along with a Stitched Circle and another Gnome. All of the paper I used on these pages is from the Christmas Lives Here set, except for this green snowflake paper. Of course, no page is complete without some fun reinforcements. (I’m addicted to them!)

Craftily yours, Karen

Cozy Winter Vibes

November 23, 2022

Hello everyone, Alice here with another creation today. This time I made a double card with the label die. And of course a shaker part on it. Shaker cards are my favorite!

First you take your cardstock and fold it in half. Then you take your die, place it a little bit over de edge of the fold and die cut. This way that side wil not be die cut.

This way you can made a double card with the label die. I love to use the die this way.

In front of this card I made a shaker part with the snowglobe die. First I cut out the die from craft cardstock. Behind this part I made a transparent sheet. With foam tape you make the shaker part.

For the background of the shaker part I made a scenery with the moose and a cute little gnome. The gnome has a Christmas ball in his hands to add to the trees in the background. The trees are from the Mason Jar set. I love these trees and use theme a lot. Specially for winter scenes.

After that I put some shaker material in the shaker part. This time I choose some shaker material from Picket Fence in the colors white and blue. These colors are matching perfect with the background paper that I used. The background paper is one of a paper pad from Moda Scrap.

Now you can make the shaker part on your double tag card. How lovely is this! You can add some ribbon on top of the card through the tag whole or just leave it as I did.

I hope you like this double tag shaker card as much as I do.

See you next time!

Gnome Sweet Gnome

September 5, 2022

Hello all. Jackie here today with a little Halloween/Autumn card using the mushroom house die set 1796. I have made the wizardy gnome able to stand forward from the house and still be able to fold flat for posting.

Step one:

Die cut and build the wizard as normal then use a white gel pen to add the jagged line, then add the broom from die set – witch 1906 slightly bend the fingers around the boom.

Step two:

Next die cut and build the mushroom house, add extra yellow paper behind the windows to give the effect of a light on.

Step three:

I added pumpkins from die set – hay ride 1909

Step four:

To attach the wizard. Make a small Z shape from strong cardstock then glue one end to the house wherever you want your wizard to stand.

Step five:

Glue the wizard to the Z piece ensuring he stands on the floor when the card is stood upright. You can wiggle him in place whilst the glue is still wet.

This Z fold piece could work for a number of different designs creating a fun 3d look that folds flat. I hope I have inspired you to have a go – Happy crafting Jackie x

There’s no place like Gnome.

June 18, 2022
Gnome Planner pages!

Hi Everyone, Thank you for joining me today! As we are celebrating Father’s day on this Sunday I take time to be thankful for all types of families we are part of and how happy that there is no place like Gnome. Lets get started…


Step 1: Out of different colored cardstock cut out your gnomes, hills, flowers, fence, sky and cattails from Adventures Edges 2, Once up a time accessories and Gnomes. I inked the edges with coordinating distress ink just a shade darker to highlight your images. Once you have attached your images together and inked your edges, put aside.

Step 2: For the Second page cut out another mushroom, cattails, fence, hill and flowers from Adventures Edges 2 and Once Upon a Time Accessories from your choice of cardstock and ink the edges .

Step 3: Out of Planner Essentials 4 , cut out 2 planner pages from your choice of designer paper and ink your edges. As per the main image.

Step 4: Cut out your Mushroom House card, next out of the same color of card stock cut out your front part of your mushroom house and accessories, including the top, door, window, small mushroom, grass, flowers, butterfly (from Once Upon a Time Accessories) from your choice of cardstock. Once everything is cut I inked my edges with Brown Distress ink and assembled my pieces. I added the insert piece to the back of my house so I can add this insert to my planner book. In the inside of my mushroom house I added a photo mat for a 3×3 photo, a small mushroom, grass and a few flowers.

Step 5: Once all my pages have been assembled I will add my reinforcement rings and speckle my pages with white paint.

I hope you enjoyed my blog post, if you have any questions about my post please send me your question to Katie Porcina on FB.

Happy Creating and have a wonderful day!

Flower Pot

April 18, 2022

Hello everyone, it’s Alice here. Hope you all had a wonderful Easter. I’m very much into Spring mood these day with the beautiful sun shining here in the Netherlands. I therefore decided to make a colorful card using some lovely flower dies and the gnomes! I hope you enjoy creating this card or some of the techniques I will show you in this post.

First I started with the flower pot. For this I first edited a piece of paper with Dylusions spray. I then used this paper to die cut the flower pot. I then embossed the pot using an embossing folder from Tim Holtz, see picture below. This gives a nice wood structure to your flower pot. I then sprayed the pot with embossing glaze. After that I used a distress crayon to make the darker spots on it.

Then I made the lovely gnomes. They are so cute! You can use them in a winter theme but also in a spring theme.

I made a girl and boy gnome. The colors on the gnomes I made this time with ZIG markers, they are watercolor pencils. Love them to color the different parts. They have beautiful colors with a lot of pigment in it.

On the top of the flower pot I made some lovely flowers with the Florals 7 set (#1843). I used 3 of the 5 sizes for this. I colored the flowers also with the ZIG markers. In the middle of the flowers I added some beads using Glossy Accents and let it dry.

In the background I made clouds with a mask and Distress Ink Oxide Tumbled Glass. I backed the card with some Modascrap paper in the same color theme as the flowers and the gnomes.

This was my creation for today. I hope I inspire you to make a card in this spring theme!

See you next time!

Greetings Alice

Ink blended heart background

February 2, 2022

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here and posting my first brand ambassador post.

Today I want to share with you an easy Valentines day card using the the Gnome die set and Fitted Heart and Scalloped Heart dies sets. Let me show you how I made it.

Using the Fitted heart dies, cut the largest heart out of stencil material or cardstock.

Using easily removeable tape, adhere the negative space stencil you created. Using three colors of ink, create an ombre effect by blending the inks from darkest to lightest.

using white pigment ink, stamp sentiments from the Love Sentiments stamp set to create a suttle background.

print out a sentiment and cut it out using the third largest heart die. Ink the die cut using the same three inks used on your background card.

Cut a scalloped heart from white soft finish cardstock and adhere your sentiment to it

attach the layered heart sentiment to your card base. Adhere a gnome created with the Gnome die set. Finish the card with heart sequins for an added sparkly touch.

Valentine’s Gnome

January 15, 2022

Karen here today, sharing a card that would be totally appropriate for Valentine’s Day using the adorable Gnomes Dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. This gnome is too cute!

I just love that sweet little Gnome girl. To create this card, I started by cutting an 8-1/2″x11″ sheet of 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock in half. I folded one side to create a top fold card base. I cut the other side in half and cut the Gnome pieces. The pieces that are “on top” have 101mm Double Sided Adhesive on the back to make assembly a breeze.

I used mostly Distress Inks to color the sweet Gnome. The clothes are Blueprint Sketch and Kitsch Flamingo. The hair is Mustard Seed. I used a Copic E00 for the skin, G43 for the flower center and E53 for the flower.

I adhered the patterned cardstock as in the left-hand side of the picture above before cutting it with the Fitted Rectangles on the right-hand side. I then layered it up on a 4″x5-1/4″ piece of blue cardstock. Then I put the Gnome on the card and added some gems and a sentiment from the Bear Hugs set.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Fun and Games

December 15, 2021

Hello friends, it’s Sandy Diller here today with a fun little card using the adorable Gnomes out for a Joy ride. I hope Santa doesn’t see them because he would put them on the naughty list for sure. I have to giggle each time I look at these little guys.

This is a 5″ X 7″ easel card so the base is 7″ X 10″ with a score in the center. Then another score line was added in the center of the card front so it can fold. Color was added to a third panel and then cut out using the Dotted Background die. The snowdrift was cut using the Long Adventure Edges and the added below the blue panel.

The panel with the snowdrift and sky were added to another white panel and then added to the card base – gluing only to the bottom portion of the front panel (below the fold).

The Jeep was cut and assembled. Using dies from the Train Cart set, lights were added. I cut the light strings from black and then added lights from white Soft Finish Cardstock that were colored with markers. The wreath is from the Reindeer die set and then decorated with Craft Dots. A bow was added just for fun. You can use any bow in your collection.

I just love these adorable gnomes so cut out 4 using different colors for their hats. For the driver I cut the steering wheel in half to make it appear that his beard was flying around the wheel. His hat was creased backward to make it look like it’s blowing in the wind.

For the gnome driving the jeep I cut the hands from the die set and then cut the finger off making a rounded hand to hold the wheel. A little pink ink was added to the hands

A greeting was stamped on a panel with another snowbank. A crease was added near the top to hold the front panel open. This panel was added to the inside panel of the card and attached only to the crease line. This card stands for display and is so much fun but it also folds flat for mailing.

Now the only thing left is to add the little details like the gifts falling from the jeep and the strings of lights.

Wishing all of you a most joyous holiday season and a happy new year,
