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…

Gnomes

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!

Fantasy Flowers Joset Designs Paper flowers

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.

Instructions:
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,

Sandy

Gnomes and Holiday Trains

November 29, 2021

Karen here. I’m having so much fun with the new release from Joset. Today I made a couple simple and sweet holiday cards using the Gnomes and the Holiday Train die sets. Love putting together these designs from Joset. It reminds me of playing with paper dolls when I was a kid – so fun and relaxing!

To start these cards, I cut two card fronts from 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. I also cut a 6″x6″ piece of patterned cardstock in a 4″ inch strip and a 2″ inch strip. I adhered them to the card fronts in a diagonal way. On one of them, I also cut a 3/4″ strip of Soft Finish Cardstock and stamped a sentiment on it from the stamp set in the Classic Christmas Set. For the other, I stamped the sentiment right on the card front. Then I die cut one with a Stitched Rounded Rectangle and the other with a Stitched Indented Rectangle die.

For the Gnome girl, I cut her dress and hat with red cardstock, and her shoes, collar and bows with green cardstock. I colored her skin with a Copic E00 and her hair with a Copic Y23. I added a few presents as embellishments. The hearts are also in the Gnomes dies, and I thought they were the perfect little addition in the corner.

The Holiday Train is cut with a combination of 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock, green cardstock and Kraft Cardstock. (The darker brown has Distress Ink in Tea Dye added to it. The fun “trick” to making assembly easy is to add 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to the pieces that are on top. What a great way to turn the die cut into a sticker.

So easy; so fun. Thank you for stopping by today.

Craftily yours, Karen

Tis the Season

November 19, 2021

Hello friends, it’s Sandy Diller here with you today. I have a fun card using the adorable new Gnomes. I just can’t get enough of them. Today the Gnomes are busy decorating the trees for Christmas Day. Sometimes things just don’t seem to go the way we plan and we get all tangled up.

This is a 5″ X 7″ easel card so I began by cutting my Soft Finish Cardstock 7″ X 10″ with a crease in the center and then another crease at 2.5″ to make it an easel. A decretive strip was added to the bottom edge of the card. I used Christmas lights since I was planning to have my Gnomes all tangled in lights.

The decorative strip will end up on the inside of the card as shown here.

Using the Dotted Background die – it was inked and added to the top front of the card. Next came the snow bank using the Slimline Adventure Edges.

An additional snow bank was created and creased 1/2″ from the top and added to the bottom panel. When the card is opened the snow bank will hold the front panel in position.

Now it’s time to have some Gnome fun! The little guy shown above was assembled as usual but then creased so he would appear to be sitting in the snow. Because he has to fit inside the card when it is closed it was necessary to fold his little hat to fit. Then Christmas lights were added using the lights found in the new Train Carts die set.

This Gnome buddy was assembled using the new Gnomes die set. This set has so many possibilities for making the Gnomes doing different activities. In this one I put the arms out holding the string of lights. This set also includes the bulbs that you see in the final card. So much fun!!

To finish this card off I got out some trees for the Gnomes to decorate. The extra strings of lights were created using the strings for the balloon set.

Thank you so much for stopping by – I will see you soon,

Sandy
