Merry Gnome

Merry Mixed Media Madness, crafters! Oh my goodnes, this was so much fun to make! Amazingly, there was no stamping involved?! I was inspired by a Christmas Recipe Book done by Emma Willimas last year. There are many layers that went into the making of this card. The gnome and sentiment are from Cricut Design Space as was the North Pole stencil (upper right hand corner). The snowflakes are Spellbinders’ Snowflakes dies. For the North Pole Seal, I used a Cricut Space image and cut it into a plastic to create the stencil; I new stencil for my stash. LOL! The papers for the border and card base and what I had on hand.

Here’s the recipe……


  • Arches Cold Pressed Watercolor Paper
  • Distresed Oxides: Iced Spruce, Pumice Stone
  • Distressed Spray Stain: Speckled Egg, Tumbled Glass
  • Distressed Oxide Spray: Tumbled Glass, Bundled Sage
  • Craftsmart Gold acrylic paint
  • Northpole seal and snow below the sentiment: Ranger Texture Paste Transparent Matte, Distress Spray Stain in Tumbled Glass, Distress Glitter in Clear Rock Candy and Craftsmart Gold acrylic paint
  • Golden acrylic paint in CT Interference Green-Blue to splatter snowflakes
  • White thread and simple straight stitch with a New Home sewing machine


  • Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock
  • Golden acrylic paint in CT Interference Green-Blue
  • Folkart color shirt acrylic paint in Emerald Flash
