Enchanted Corner
Gnome outline dies & Stamp Set 

The current challenge at Lost Coast Portal to Creativity is also Gnomes (Valid until the 31st January). I already entered this with this ATC:

I won this gnome stamp from LCD a while ago - I have more on my wishlist!! 23 gnome stamps and 4 gnome homes are available in real red rubber from the Lost Coast Designs store. 

I decided to use the same stamp, coloured in a similar Christmassy way for today's card.


  1. Square white card blank.
  2. Layer of red card.
  3. Layer of white embossed card.
  4. Background layer using Distress Oxides in an embossing folder, trimmed and with Black Soot Distress Ink around the edges. Although I have many 'tree' embossing folders, this was a new one when I made this background... I will add this card to NBUS #22
  5. I stamped my gnome, coloured it with markers and cut it out, adding it to the background.
  6. I stamped the sentiment(Craftstash stamp set) and cut it into a banner adding faux stitching with a Micron pen. I added this to a red card background and glued it in place.

I hope you will join the

Happy Crafting!


  1. Your little gnome is adorable Susan and I love the woodland scene you made for him to drink his cocoa in! (At least I think it's cocoa, although it might be something stronger to keep the cold out!) Vicky x

  2. I love that gnome, sipping his coffee! And the wood background that you made is awesome, too!

  3. This is fabulous, and just perfect for Christmas! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Lost Coast Designs and have a very happy week, Sue x

  4. This gnome card is so cute! The colorful trees are the perfect backdrop for him. :-D

  5. Your gnome themed card is adorable. You did a great job creating a scene for him too!

    Thanks for taking part in the first Rudolph Days Challenge this year!

  6. Oh, this is gorgeous. I love the embossed trees. An awesome forest and perfect a spot to stop for coffee. Thanks for joining the gnome fun at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity. Hugz
