Happy Galentine’s Day Like Gnome Other

I love to make Valentine’s Day Cards! For today’s cards, I used a stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog that I just didn’t get to play with enough before it retired, Gnome For the Holidays. I really like the play on words with the sentiments in this set and the gnome is just stinkin’ cute! Who says you can’t turn a Christmas gnome into a Valentine’s Day one?!
Stampin' Up! Gnome For The Holidays Valentine's Day card idea for a friend - JeanieStark StampinUp
I was inspired by Julie Gilson’s Christmas card. All I had to do was change the designer series paper from Christmas to Valentine’s and cover up the ornament hanging from the gnome’s hat. I found the perfect size heart in the Stitched Be Mine Dies. (*You can view the complete list of supplies I used in the product list below.)  The hearts and squiggly paper is from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper. This pack has lots of fun designs!

The inside sentiment I used is from the Hearts & Kisses Stamp Set. It is perfect for a friend’s valentine card.

I like the other sentiments in this set too and know I will use them throughout the year.

Here’s the details to make this card:

Measurements

  • Card Base (Basic White Note Card): 5 x 7 scored at 3 1/2
  • Real Red: 3 1/2 x 5, 2 1/8 x 3 5/8
  • Basic White: 4 5/8 x 3 1/8, 3 1/2 x 2, 3 x 2 (to stamp gnome and cut out with Layering Ovals Die)
  • Designer Series Paper (Snail Mail): 4 1/2 x 3
  • Basic Black: 3 x 2 to cut Scalloped Oval Die
  • Blushing Bride: scrap to cut heart from Stitched Be Mine Dies

Directions:

  1. Fold and burnish note card. Adhere Real Red cardstock layer.
  2. Adhere DSP to Basic White layer.
  3. Stamp sentiment in Memento Black Ink on 3 1/2 x 2 Basic White. Emboss with Subtle 3D Embossing folder. Adhere to Real Red layer.
  4. Wrap Black & White Baker’s Twine (from Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack) around sentiment layer and tie a bow. Adhere to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Stamp gnome on Basic White and cut with Layering Ovals Die. Color with Real Red, Gray Granite, and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends.
  6. Adhere gnome to Basic Black Layer. Adhere to Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Cut heart die from Stitched Be Mine Dies and adhere to hat on top of ornament.
  8. Stamp inside sentiment and hearts with Real Red Ink.

What could be better than a cute gnome valentine? A “gnomie” to go with it of course! I have several friends who like and collect gnomes so I sent a little gift with their card. They can put it with their Christmas ornaments and add it to their tree next year. I added a little tag with the same sentiment I used on the front of their card.

The Stampin’ Up! Gusseted Cellophane Bags were the perfect size to wrap up these gnomes for gift giving. I added a Real Red Sheer Ribbon bow and my Valentine’s were complete!

Valentine’s Day is a nice reminder to let others know you care! Spread the love and make someone smile today! I will be making some mailbox deliveries today with my gnomies.

Order your January Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet Today!

It’s time to place your order for my Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet To Go for January! My Holiday kits sold out and I had a few disappointed people that missed out! Don’t let that happen to you this month! I can only make so many kits each month and once I reach my limit they’re gone!

My “Kit Buffet TO GO!” is intended to make it easy for you to be able to see and try out different products while being able to substitute different stamps you already have. You don’t have to worry about having coordinating designer series paper to go with the cardstock, the right color ribbon to match, or other embellishments…everything is in the kit and shipped to you!  You just need to stamp and adhere.

Here’s how you can reserve your seat at the buffet table:

Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) with “Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet” in the subject line. *Make sure you include your mailing address! Then send payment through PayPal. To do this, go to paypal.com, sign in or register for an account, click “Send” and fill in my email address (j.stark@myactv.net). Click “next”, then “Send to a Friend,” fill in the amount ($20 which includes shipping), and Continue. If you do not use PayPal, you may send me a check. I sold out in the past so don’t wait to order!

Here’s what others have said about my past kits:

I love your kits. Your attention to detail is amazing. Instructions are fantastic and precise so that each item is quick and easy to put together. The pictures are a big plus in following the instructions.. Thank you so much for making these kits available to us.   Bernice P

Oh my goodness, thank you! I so enjoyed the last kit! Kept me occupied for a week! And this set is equally as beautiful! You do such thoughtful and intriguing projects! Please know that your talents and creativity are appreciated! (And your directions are a retired teacher’s dream!)  Nancy B.

I love Jeanie’s kits – they are are like getting a beautiful gift when you open the envelope! Her directions are clear and I have loved what I have gotten. Because I am away from home for the winter I have limited supplies with me, so these kits make it much easier for me to continue crafting while I am away!  Nancy H.

Your photos and instructions are great. Christmas was just too much fun. I was able to whip up some extra gift card holders using your measurements which was so fast and easy.  I will send you an email to reserve another fun kit! It is fun to use papers and stuff I don’t have yet too.  Chris R. from Iowa

Please count me in! Besides being great cards, it’s the BEST value out there and I’d do this even if you charged more–your time is worth more than you are charging!
Thanks, Jeanie. Excited to see the new things you’ve come up with.
Susan

I worked on your Card Buffet this afternoon. What a delightful way to spend an afternoon! Your directions and photos really are EXCELLENT. I think that part of the reason that you write such good instructions is because you are programmed to teach little kids; it makes you really good at spelling out every step. Well done!  ~M~

My kit arrived today and I’m so excited!  What great cards and I love the flexibility.  They’re beautiful.   Thanks, Susan

Your kit arrived yesterday and I’ve had great fun putting it together. You did a terrific job!  I love the way everything coordinates (which is my biggest challenge) and the kit was so well organized with the pieces for the box all together neatly in a glassine envelope.  Such attention to detail!  

Your instructions were impeccable.  Your pictures were beautiful and a big help in putting everything together. Obviously I am very pleased. And I will be ordering again if you have future kits.    Thank you so much,
Deborah M

Gathered Leaves…Fall Birthday Card #4

Stampin' Up! Itty Bitty Birthdays, Gathered Leaves, and Plaid Tidings fall birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Today’s card showcases the Gathered Leaves Dies and Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper with a sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays on the front. This is a fun fold card which is hard to tell from the front. Here’s a look at it opened.

Stampin' Up! Gathered Leaves and Itty Bitty Birthdays Plaid Tidings birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
You can stamp any sentiment on the front or inside. I sometimes like to add a handwritten note inside. This card uses one sheet of the Plaid Tidings 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper to make the card and decorate the envelope. I love to design cards where there is no waste!
