I'm Gnome For Loving Coffee Card

I was so excited when I went to my mail box this morning and saw that the new Gnome Brewed Stamp Set and Coffee Bean Stencil from Jaded Blossom had arrived! The coffee gnomes are even cuter in person if that's even possible! I knew I wanted to purchase this set after seeing the sneak peeks and projects using this stamp set. I'm obsessed with gnomes, and this coffee themed set is really unique. I made this card today because I couldn't wait to create something with it. I hope you like it!


If you'd like to make this card too, keep reading for the instructions, as well as a full list of the supplies I used to create the card.



Let's Make This Card!





Stamp the smaller gnome and coffee cups onto an alcohol marker friendly white paper of your choice.


I used the following Copic colors to color the images:

B00,  B04: gnome hat and clothes and small coffee cup

E34, E37, E39: coffee beans on gnome hat and the gnome's coffee cup

E31, E34: gnome nose and hands

N0, N2, N3: gnome beard and coffee cup lids and bottom

G43, G46: large coffee cup

White gel pen: highlights on nose and coffee cups




For the background, I used Jaded Blossom's Coffee Bean Stencil, Bazzill Dark Kraft cardstock, and Distress Oxide Ink in Vintage Photo. To create the coffee bean background, I used a Taylored Expressions Blender Brush and applied the ink to the cardstock through the stencil. You may want to use iCraft Purple Tape or low tack Washi Tape to keep the stencil from shifting while you apply the ink. Keep applying color until you have the shade that you desire.



After the ink is applied to the cardstock through the stencil, this is what the background looks like. So cool! Again, you can make it as light or as dark as you want. It's totally up to you.



Next, I cut a frame out of Bazzill Java cardstock using a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle Scallop Edge Frame die.



After that, you'll want to make the heart peek-a-boo windows. I used Bazzill Kraft cardstock, and the 2 smaller hearts from the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Heart die set. To keep them in place while I ran them through my die cutting machine, I used iCraft Purple Tape.



Since I used hearts on this card, I decided to go with the "I'm Gnome For Loving Coffee" sentiment from the stamp set. I used Distress Oxide Vintage Photo Ink to stamp the phrase onto the cardstock.



It's finally time to assemble the card! You'll want to glue the cardstock with the stitched hearts on top of the stenciled cardstock. Next, glue the frame to the front of the card.



Now, you'll want to tuck the gnome on an angle inside the larger heart.



After that, you should glue the large cup on an angle under the smaller heart in the bottom right corner of the card. Use a small adhesive dot to attach the smaller coffee cup to the card.



Finally, wrap brown and white Baker's twine around the top of the card and finish with a bow. You are done!

    1. Yes, I fussy cut the gnome and coffee cups. The shapes are very simple and easy to cut.
