Thanksgiving Gnomes


Distressed Edge Slimline Die


We have a special treat for you today with process videos from our YT DT Members.  You are going to LOVE what they have in store for you!


Are you ready to see the samples?






This card design by Adam is brilliant!  He used the Cross-Stitched Nesting Slimline die along with the Distressed-edge and Stitched Slimline Waves.  The Thanksgiving Gnomes were colored and foam-mounted onto the card in front of the sun and pine tress, die-cut using the Crafter’s essential Winter die set.   His sentiment came from the Happy Fall Y’all stamp set.







I adore this clean & simple design by Caren.  Her background panel along with the patterned paper were die-cut using the Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangle die set.  She used a stencil for added texture and foam-mounted the gnomes on the card for more dimension.


I love, love, love this Christmas card!  The patterned paper was die-cut using the Distressed Edge Slimline die and adhered on a red mat.  She adorned her card with the Gingerbread die-cut using the Design a Gingerbread die set, and finished her design with the Happy Holidays sentiment.






Words cannot even describe how much I love this Thanksgiving card by Jo.  She also has a process video of her card and it is AMAZING!







Kathy’s card designs are always phenomenal!  She used the Distressed-Edge Slimline die to create the frame, and added the images from the Thanksgiving Gnomes stamp set.  She used a lot of the new sprinkles as her shaker element and finished her design by adding the Thank you sentiment with shadow.






I am a sucker for shaker cards and this one by Lisa did not disappoint!  This is honestly one of the cutest shaker cards i’ve ever seen!  Her cross-stitched slimline panel was ink-blended with distress oxide inks.  The images were beautifully colored and fussy-cut with precision snips, and adhered onto the panel with liquid glue.  The windows were die-cut using the double-stitched square dies and for her shaker element, she used the Happy Pumpkin sprinkles.







I ink-blended the background with Picked Raspberry, Antique Linen and Tattered rose distress oxide inks.  I used the Falling Leaves stencil by Newton’s Nook (available at the shop) to add more texture to the background.  The frame was cut using the Distressed-Edge Slimline die on some black card stock to make the images pop!  The Thanksgiving Gnomes, turkey and pumpkins were colored using TriBlend markers by Spectrum Noir.  I finished my design with the sentiment (stamped and heat set on some black card stock) foam-mounted onto the card for added dimension.





Isn’t this slimline card so cute?!   The glittered background was die-cut using the Distressed-Edge slimline die.  The gnomes were colored with alcohol markers and foam-mounted onto the card for added dimension.  The background tree was die-cut using the Crafter’s essential Fall die set.



Another cute card from Martha, using the turkey and leaves images from the Thanksgiving Gnomes, the Cross Stitched Nesting Slimline die set along with the Distressed-Edge Slimline dies.







I always ADORE Meghan’s cards.  She used the Distressed-Edge Slimline die and ink-blended this panel with some Distress oxide inks.  She also used her Copic markers to add more texture.  The snow-capped mountains were die-cut using a die from her collection.  To finish her design, she added the “You Rock” sentiment and purple enamel dots.





Priscilla is spoiling us today with three samples!


The first card is so DREAMY!  Priscilla ink-blended the Distressed-Edge Slimline die with some distress oxide inks.  She adhered this panel on a slimline card base.   To create her scene, she added the moon die-cut using the never-ending circle die and used the Slimline Layered Cityscape die set.  She added some gold speckles onto the card using some gold watercolor.  To finish her design, she added the Love you to the moon and back sentiment in gold.



Priscilla is showing versatility by creating two A2-size cards using the Thanksgiving Gnomes stamp set along with the previously released Happy Fall Y’all stamp.   I love the funny card above when she used the turkey and added some baby chicks images with the speech bubble!






A cute and funny card by Tina.  She used the Cross-Stitched Slimline die for her background and created a shaker card with the Woodgrain Framed Diamond wire die and used the Hey Chickadee sprinkles as her shaker element. Her focal image, the turkey from the Thanksgiving Gnome stamp set is holding the sign that says “Eat Chicken” is hilarious!






I am just in awe when I saw this sample by Sandra.  She die-cut different variation of blue card stock using the Distressed-Edge Slimline die and added the cute images on this card to create a wonderful ocean-themed card.  She also has a special treat for us with a process video below:







What an adorable card from Waleska.  The distressed panel was die cut using the Distressed-Edge Slimline dies and stained with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  She added some fall leaves to adorn her focal image with the pumpkins, using the Thanksgiving Gnome stamp set and finished her design by adding some sequins.  I just love the simplicity of this Thanksgiving slimline card.  Well done, Waleska!


The entire design team worked so hard to create these samples for you today.  Which one is your favorite? I can’t even pick one to be honest!  They knocked it out of the park!!

    So much inspiration on these projects. It’s hard to choose a favorite, but if so, I’d have to go with Jo Thompson for her gnome card and Priscilla for her Fall card.

    Oh what a marvelous collection. I love the slimline dies–not like anything else! I was loving the pilgrim gnome until I saw YOU ROCK with the mountains. My daughter has painted many Whidbey Island rocks until life life got in the way and was even artist of the month a while back. This would make such a great card for her.
