Do you <3 gnomes, but don’t have a stamp? No problemo, girl. Here is an easy how-to make “A” gnome video for you!
Taking the Challenge
Challenge #1: The Paper Players “Into the Woods” Challenge looked like a fit. This is my first time trying this challenge. Since it is a well known fact that gnomes live in the woods, I thought this would be perfect. There are some cute samples over there including a to-go cup made with buffalo plaid.
Challenge #2: This is my first time for The Rainbow Card Metallic Challenge, and the gnome covers several metallic check marks. I used the
- Embossing Ink Pens from Close To My Heart ,
- Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder,
- Gold Glitter Gems,
- November Stamp of the Month
- Lavender Blend TriBlend Marker
- Evergreen Ink
- Water Color Pencils (currently not available)
- and the Gold Metallic Marker (no longer available.
- Check out their blogs for more ideas!
I’d love to see you take up the Gnome Challenge, too, and start the #GnomeFUNN #gnomevember invasion. Just use one of my tags #FUNNUniversity, #gnomeFUNN, or #marygunnFUNN, and I’ll be able to find your gnomes!
Holly Jolly Scrapbook Workshop
As a reminder, this month we will be creating at least 8 Christmas 12″x 12″ pages from the Holly Jolly Workshop (plus some Mix-in papers) on the online campus of FUNN University. Want to see what we are all about? Join us for a month, just for FUNN. FUNN U. is not like any virtual campus you’ve seen. We are all about being the support your need for the FUNN you want, and according to the feedback we are receiving, we are hitting the mark.
