Baking Gnomes


It's Anja here. I got my dies this week and couldn't wait to try them out. My favourite is Baking Gnomes die and that's why I used it first.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Baking Gnomes, Measuring Cup Snowman),
- Zig water color brushes (Numbers: 010, 022, 060, 064, 069, 071, 072, 090, 092, 095, 097, 302),
- watercolor paper for die cuts,
- craft card base (15x15 cm),
- patterned and craft paper for background (13,5x13,5 and 12,5x12,5 cm),
- snowflake stencil,
- white texture paste,
- spatula,
- gold acrylic paint,
- brush and water brush,
- adhesive foam pads,
- scissors,
- heat gun,
- black pen,
- paper glue.

First I colored the gnomes. I left the pieces stuck to the paper, because it's easier to color this little pieces. I used Zig markers and water brush.

Then I glued the pieces together and did the eyes with black marker.

Then I cut and colored the sentiment. I decided to color it a bit messy. I like the effect.

Then I made the background. I cut the paper, distressed the edges and then spritzed it with gold paint drops.

When the color was dry, I used the stencil and texture paste for the snowflakes. I let it dry.

Then I cut patterned paper and then glued everything together. I used adhesive foam pads for the gnomes.

And this is my finished card.

Hope you like the genomes as much as I do. Don't forget to check the other new dies too. Here's the link to the new collection.

Have a nice Sunday and see you again next week.

This is adorable, Anja! I can see why it's your favorite. I love the stenciled background and the gnome standing on the stepladder!

This is so adorable and I love how you colored the gnomes. That stepladder would work with other dies as well as this one so this is a really versatile kit!
