Cheer and Joy...the Gnome Way!

There is a brand new release available over at Simon Says Stamp today, Cheer and Joy!!  There is so much wonderful in this new release...I have made two cards to show you, made with the new adorable little Gnome die!!...
 The Gnome is a shadow die, so I die cut the  hat and clothes with patterned paper, and the nose from a peach colored paint chip, and the background in white.  I layered him with a couple layers, and adhered him to a panel that I had stamped the new CZ Design Clean Line Trees on.  I used the really cool new Merry Frame die (layered), using just the "merry", and a couple new sentiments from the new Clean Line Christmas and Holiday Greetings Mix 1 for the perfect Christmas sentiment from this little Christmas gnome:)!  Here's a close up...

 The second one, although I went in an everyday direction, I chose a sentiment from the new Everything Winter sentiment strips for my inspiration...
 I die cut the gnome from patterned paper and layered, like the first one.  I chose to frame him in a die cut heart (with a woodgrain embossed background)with some die cut flowers (after all, gnomes ARE usually found in the garden:)!), die cut from Simon's Mini Flowers and Leaves dies.  I die cut and layered letters from the cute alphabet dies from CZ Design, Archie Jr. Solid.  I thought the font of these letters was perfect for the cute gnome.  I repeated the sentiment, bringing the "gnome" into the sentiment with the strip from the sentiment strip set.  The sentiment strips ARE winter, but this one is really generic in it's season.  Here's a close up...  
This little guy is too stinkin' cute, right??!!  I'll be back tomorrow to be a part of day 1 of a two day blog hop over at the Simon Blog....hope you'll check out the inspiration for this wonderful new release, and I've provided a link to the release at the beginning of my product list below!!  
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
