Christmas Gnomies - Gnome Pun Intended

Hello friends.  Just a quick post to wish all my friends in America a very blessed, happy, and safe Thanksgiving tomorrow...I truly am thankful for each one of you!!

Also wanted to quick show you a few more tags I made using the new Simon Says Stamp kit (HERE) Gnome For The Holidays.  I got hooked on Gnomes last Christmas and now I feel like everything that has a Gnome on it I have to have!!  Haha!  Yup, I'm addicted!

Anyway, the kit (which is sadly sold out now) came with the dies and papers, and I just spent an hour last night cutting multiple Gnomes out of several of the different papers and then fashioned them all into tags this morning!  Easy peasy and oh so fun and CUTE!!

Here's the first three I made, also using the stick tree stamps that came in the kit and some light blue (Salty Ocean DI) ink blending directly onto the tag.  I added a small torn strip at the bottom for my snowbanks, added a little glitter and stamped the "Merry Christmas" which is also part of the stamp set in the kit.  Added the Gnomes with pop dots and finished off with some sheer red ribbon and black & white bakers twine.

Here's the 2nd set of three...aren't they SO cute?!!  I mixed and matched the DSP that came with the kit for the bodies and the hats, and then the beards are all die cut from a sort of grayish metallic cardstock that also came with the kit.  The little noses were all cut with some scraps of Sweet Blush cs.

Again, I hope all of you that celebrate Thanksgiving will have a wonderful day tomorrow celebrating with family and friends.  It will be a small celebration at our house this year with just my mom and our 2 younger daughters...our oldest daughter and grandbabies will be celebrating with her hubby's family this year.  But we will be eating like kings and queens with lots of favorite dishes, and I am definitely looking forward to a turkey sandwhich on Friday with leftovers!!  :0)

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

If you're looking for a fairly big Thanksgiving dinner, come on over...we're dishing up on Saturday, so you'll have plenty of time to make the drive, lol!! I'll admit I had no interest in gnomes until SSS came out with these cutie pies. So glad you got your hands on a kit, because you're killin' it!! These are all adorable, and I love how you've mixed and matched these papers. And that little stick tree...versatile, as the last two tags look like they almost have mountains in the background! Love these. Thanksgiving blessings to you and your family. xo Bev

These are SO ADORABLE, Marcia! The gnomes are cute as could be, especially cut from all the different patterned papers. Great design with a splash of blue in the background and a torn snowhill and trees. Love 'em! xx

I love this gnome and he's perfect dressed in the mix and match papers! What fun tags!
Happy Thanksgiving, my friend. I agree that the leftovers are the best part!

Bobby said...

I've invested in a couple of gnomes too, Marcia, but not these. They are so cute in all those patterned papers. Happy Thanksgiving to you too.

Birgit said...

Oh my, these are super cute Marcia! I love the patterned papers you used. Who knew cuddling with gnomes would be so much fun. Have a Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. (hugs)
