Storybook Gnomes PP610

by Joanne James25. September 2022 08:00

Today it's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the fabulous Jaydee to host this week and she has my favourite, a sketch challenge for us to work with:

 

I decided to go with another Christmas card today and spent some time fussy cutting a host of cute and cuddly animals, gnomes and toadstools from my Storybook Gnomes designer series paper to create a sweet festive scene - take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

If you don't mind a little fussy cutting, this card comes together really easily. I added a panel of patterned paper to my Balmy Blue card base, then built my little scene for the horizontal element. The gnome and toadstool can be cut out with the Gnomes Dies - only the remaining animals require fussy cutting. Here's my completed lineup:

 A sprinkling of (retired) adhesive snowflakes, a simple stamped sentiment from the 'Kindest Gnomes' stamp set and a little stamping on the inside completes my card:

I am also linking up today's card over at Alphabet Challenge Blog where they are currently on 'M is for Magic', so my magical gnome and friends should fit right in!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

 

You can see all of my Product and 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any.

Well that is a cute little scene of a magical gnome and his critter friends! I will need to inspect my papers to see what I can cut out and put to use! Thanks for joining us at the Alphabet Challenge.

Such a cute holiday card, Joanne! Your gnome and critter friends were fussy cut perfectly! You need to teach me how to be so precise! Love the background paper you used as well. Thank you for playing with us at the Alphabet Challenge and hope you can join in again soon.

I love how you cut elements from the paper to make a little scene with your gnome and his toadstool house.  This DSP is so pretty! Fun take on the sketch.
