Garden Gnomes

Gnomes are known as symbols of good luck and were originally thought to provide protection, especially of buried treasure and minerals in the ground. They are still used today to watch over crops and livestock, often tucked into the rafters of a barn. You see them quite often in people’s front yards in flower beds, near a door. Many people are now building gardens for their gnomes. They have houses, bridges, and so much more for their gnomes to live comfortably:)

When the Sale-A-Bration came out with the Painted Seasons DSP, I immediately saw gnomes and I had to create my own garden of gnomes. I went to Dollar General and found all kinds of items for gnomes and got a few of them. I then went to Dollar Tree and found mini gnomes and items and I thought "what can I create with them?" I got a few and when I got home I started looking to see what I could create. I searched pinterest and found this card from Melissa Colledge and just had to recreate it.

I created mine a little differently, I fussy cut the hat from Poppy Parade cardstock, the beard is using the Hello Cupcake stamp, stamped in Smoky Slate, the nose is 3/4 inch punch using Petal Pink and popped up with a dimensional and same for the face I fussy cut also. My card base is Cajun Craze.

 I created this box following Erica Cerwin's video on her
 Pink Buckaroo site. I again used Cajun Craze, Whisper White, Poppy Parade and Crushed Curry CS. I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black ink and used the "hi there!" from the Floweing Desert stamp set.

Here is Erica's box, she made a St. Patrick Leprechaun.

I added a gnome to a candle to display out in the garden for this summer.

I kept looking at the mini gnomes and wandering what to create to display them. Again I went to pinterest and found again on Erica's site these adorable Flowering Desert Sweet Cups with domes.

Here is one of the mini gnomes I made with the sweet cups. 

And here is a couple more. 
These would make great gifts for a garden party.
I used the template for the sweet cups to cover the cup and then cut a piece of dsp about 1/2 (I cut mine at the next mark after the 1/2 inch, it seems to fit better, but that is up to you)  x 11 or 12 if you want some overlap, of the same design but flipped it over to use the other side and wrapped it around the lid. I added a piece of a moss sheet that I cut out with a circle framelit and snailed it to the lid. I hot glued the gnomes and etc. I then hot glued the dome on top. These domes are 80mm ornaments that I got from Amazon and fit the domes perfectly. I will add the link image if you wish to order them from amazon. 

Here there are all together. These are ready for the garden or party!
