In the video, Heather shares how she colored the gnomes from the Like Gnome Other Kit with Copic markers and colored pencils. She shares how she created the toadstools and the cute heart banner that the gnomes are holding. I spy Heather’s signature Sugar Cube ink on Toffee cardstock stamped with the Cable Knit Background stamp!
The Like Gnome Other Kit can be used year round for a number of occasions, but there are quite a few fun elements in the kit that are perfect for creating Valentine themed projects! Sentiments like ‘I heart you’, ‘with love’, and more are perfect for sending a bit of love to the special people in your life.
The Bits & Pieces – Hearts embellishments are a perfect touch for Valentine themed projects. I love how Heather used them to create tiny heart banners for the gnomes to hold on her projects!
Check out the list below for the supplies that Heather used on her project:
Now, let’s take a closer look at the different elements of the kit as well as more inspiration from the TE Creative Team. Note: All of these items currently are only available as part of the Like Gnome Other Kit.
The Like Gnome Other stamp set features the two cutest gnomes (gnome and gnomette?) complete with pointy hats and striped socks! The set also includes four mini images (flowers, hearts, and a bee) and eight sentiments for various occasions. Color the gnomes with your favorite medium like Copic markers, colored pencils, watercolors, and more! Cut out the gnomes using the coordinating Like Gnome Other dies.
Wanda Guess is joining us for this kit release and she colored up the gnome couple from the Like Gnome Other stamp set using Copic markers and added them to a cute as can be scene on this birthday card. The subtle highlight details that Wanda did with a white gel pen adds so much dimension to the images and die cuts! Wanda added the ‘happy birthday gnomie!’ sentiment along with a few tiny hearts to a Stitched Circle Stacklets die cut to finish off her birthday card design.
This card created by Laurie Willison just makes me smile! Laurie used the gnome couple from the Like Gnome Other stamp set, colored them using Copic markers, and added the top half of the gnomes to the very bottom edge of the card. It’s the perfect effect to pair with the ‘peeking’ in to say hello’ sentiment!
Arjita Sepaha Singh is known for her skills with the no-line coloring technique and she really shows that off on this mini slim card! The gnomes are stamped in a very light colored ink (Sea Salt ink works great for this technique) and then Arjita added color to them using watercolors. I love the bright and cheery colors, highlights, and splatters that add detail and whimsy to this card. I have to admit that this card inspires me to use this kit to practice the no-line technique myself!
Create a cute scene for the gnomes using the Build a Scene – Heart Fence & Hill die collection. The set includes a curved picket fence with heart cutout details along with a die to cut a matching hill that fits perfectly under the fence.
The Layer It – Toadstools die collection includes dies to create three different mini toadstools. Cut the pieces from different colors of cardstock and then assemble to include on your projects.
Melody Rupple created the cutest little love scene on this card! She set the gnomes on the fence created with the Build a Scene – Heart Fence & Hill dies. The girl gnome looks like she is sitting on the fence and the boy gnome is standing on the fence rungs! Melody added plenty of hearts to her card using both the stamped hearts and the clay hearts from the Bit & Pieces – Hearts embellishments. I love how she added the clay hearts over the heart openings on the fence!
This showstopper of a card is created by Noriko Fairchild using the Gatefold Reveal 2 dies with the Like Gnome Other Kit! Noriko used the Build a Scene – Heart Fence & Hill die across the card front and inside of the card along with plenty of cute toadstools created with the Layer It – Toadstools dies. When the card is opened, the cute girl gnome is revealed in the circle opening! How fun to receive an interactive card like this!
Kevin Bray used just the Layer It – Toadstools dies and an embossed sentiment from the Like Gnome Other stamp set on this card. The red and white toadstools really pop on the ink smooshed and splattered background that Kevin created. The sequins scattered throughout the card design add a sparkly finishing touch. Swap out different sentiments to use this card design for a number of different occasions.
Jill Hawkins created cute toadstools using single colors of cardstock with the Layer It- Toadstools dies for her card. The different layers in the die collection add texture and dimension without having to use multiple colors. Jill used the toadstools to frame the shaker window that the girl gnome is peeking out of! I love the hearts inside Jill’s shaker and how the knit patterned background that’s peeking through the window and around the edges of the card – keep scrolling to learn more!
The Cable Knit Background stamp is perfect to add a hand knit and cozy look to your project. The background is designed to fill up a landscape A2 sized background.
You can add the Cable Knit Background stamp using subtle or tone on tone effects like Gayatri Murali on this card. Gayatri stamped the knit pattern in Sugar Cube onto Sea Salt cardstock and it adds the perfect, subtle background for her gnome crowd to stand out on. The bright colors that Gayatri colored her gnomes with really stand out and I love that she added just the white colored Bits & Pieces – Hearts embellishments scattered across the background for even more tone on tone texture!
Annette Allen inked up the Cable Knit Background stamp with a few colors for a fun multi-colored look on the background of her cute shaker card. The shaker element is created with the Tag Stacklets 2 die collection and filled up with plenty of the Bits & Pieces – Hearts embellishments. A sweet gnome, a few toadstools, and the ‘with love’ sentiment complete this cute card design.
I love how Natasha Valkovskaya used just a portion of the Cable Knit Background on her card design. She inset the stamped knit design between two pieces of cardstock along with the fence and then added the cute gnome couple and a few toadstools layered over the top. I love the bright and cheery colors that Natasha colored the gnomes with and how she added polka dot hightlight details with a white gel pen – so fun!
The Like Gnome Other Kit includes a new TE embellishment called Bits & Pieces – Hearts. These tiny clay hearts in red, pink and white are perfect for shaker cards or adding scattered throughout your projects. I am sure you noticed these cute hearts scattered throughout the projects from the TE Creative Team!
And finally, the Like Gnome Other Kit includes 6 envelopes and 6 custom envelope seals that coordinate with the theme of the kit. The six A2 envelopes match the following cardstock colors: Lollipop, Cherry Pop, and Toffee. The cute envelope seals are made from durable, weatherproof material and are sure to bring a smile to the recipients of your cards. Don’t forget that you can purchase additional envelope seals in the TE webstore right now!
