JANUARY 2023 DIY: Friendly Gnomes


Here’s a Sneak Peek for the New Year: Friendly Gnomes!

  • Stamps: Friendly Gnomes
  • Color Palette: Basic White, Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather, Soft Succulent, Daffodil Delight, Sweet Sorbet, Naturals 500, 700, 800, Memento Black
  • Accessories: Big Boss, Gnome Dies, Stampin’ Blends, Stampin’ Dimensionals

More gnomes! As of January 5, the Friendly Gnomes stamps will be available to everyone – but if you were a demonstrator, you could have had them in your hands since December 1st. Just sayin’.

I love that little squirrel! It’s included with the Friendlies, along with the balloons, the greenery, and a Gnomey Mushroom House. There are lots of creative possibilities ensuring that there will be Gnomes A-Plenty at the Maui Stamper in 2023.

While the Friendly Gnomes aren’t available until next Thursday, they coordinate with the dies from the July-December 22 Mini. The Kindest Gnomes stamps are sold out, but you can see the Gnome Dies HERE.

I considered a palette that reflected winter, but in the end I really wanted to use pastel, springtime tones. Mr. Stamper and I spent some time around Thanksgiving in the Southwest, and we had our share of cold and snow, so I was ready to put that behind me. (If you live in a place that is currently snowy and cold, believe me, you have my deepest sympathies. I was ok with it for a couple of weeks, but clearly I have a tropical constistution.)

The DIY Easel Calendar is the perfect place to play with Stampin’ Blends! It’s a small space, so everything is quick and easy. If you need to add to your Blends collection (or replace a worn-out, beloved color) you can find them all HERE.

Please visit my dear friends Crystal (Hannie Joy and Crafts) and Cheryl (Create with Cheryl) to see what they’ve chosen for the first day of January. We really enjoy creating these calendars for you!

Thanks for visiting today, and Happy New Year!
