  1. Choose one of the three gnomes included in the Gnomies Clear Stamp Set. Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp him onto white cardstock and onto repositionable label paper to be used as a mask.
  2.  Fussy-cut the label paper version and place over the gnome. 
  3.  Place piece of torn paper horizontally over the bottom of the image panel. 
  4.  Brush Stormy Sky Distress ink over the top part of the image panel. 
  5.  Move the torn paper to cover the top part of the image panel and brush Bundled Sage Distress ink over the base of the image panel. 
  6. Use Wild Mushroom Prism Ink to randomly stamp the Mini Slender Mushroom and the Mini Meadow Mushroom along the bottom of the image panel.
  7. Use the smaller of the two frame dies from the Scalloped Rectangles Frame Die Set to cut the image panel. 
  8. Lift and reserve the mask over the gnome and color him with Copic markers, which were also used to touch up the mushrooms.
  9. Apply Quickie Glue to the pom-pom on the Gnome's hat. 
  10. Sprinkle Fun Flock over the wet glue. Gently press the Fun Flock into the glue. Let dry, then shake off the excess. Repeat if a seriously fluffy pom-pom is desired.
  11. Brush an 8.5" x 4" strip of white cardstock with Wild Mushroom Prism Ink to create a background panel. 
  12. Trim this panel to 6.5", leaving a 2" piece for the sentiment. 
  13. Secure the Glory Stencil over the background panel and brush Wild Mushroom Prism Ink over the stencil onto the background. Lift the stencil and heat set both the panel and the 2" strip of cardstock.
  14. Use Onyx Black VersaFine Ink to stamp the sentiment onto the 2" strip and heat set.
  15.  Cut with the sentiment panel with a speech bubble cutting die.
  16.  Trim the brushed stencilled background panel to 3.25" wide. 
  17.  Use the Duo Tag punch to punch two corners and use the Corner Rounder to punch the bottom corners 
  18.  Cut brown cardstock to a panel that is .25" larger than the background panel. 
  19.  Repeat Step #15 on the brown cardstock panel.
  20.  Mat the background panel with the brown cardstock panel, then use a  circle punch to punch a hole through both.
  21. Adhere he die-cut image panels and sentiment as shown. 
  22. Thread three ribbons through the hole to finish the tag.
*My colored Fun Flock is really old and is no longer available. However, white Fun Flock is still available and is translucent so you can see the color below it. You can also tint small amounts with a Copic re-inker.
