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!

I didn’t have to “reinvent the wheel” to create these nugget slider boxes.  I searched and found measurements for every size nugget box you could imagine on Splitcoast Stampers (created by Chris Simon). I created two sizes to hold 3 and 4 Hershey Nuggets. Here’s the details:

3 Nugget Slider Box

  • Cut cardstock 3 5/5 x 5 1/4. Score on the short (3 5/8) side @ 1/2, 1 1/8, 2 1/2, 3 1/8. Score on the long (5 1/4) side @ 1/2, 1 1/8, 4 1/8, 4 3/4.
  • Cut the corners as shown below. Cut and notch the tabs and add adhesive.
  • Adhere the tabs to form the box.
  • Add adhesive to the 4 sides and fold over inside the box to secure.
  • Cut DSP strips 1 x 3 and wrap around nuggets. Die Cut Letters from Playful Alphabet Dies and adhere to nuggets.

  • To make the slider, cut cardstock 3 1/16 x 4 5/8. Score on the long side @ 3/8, 1 7/8, 2 9/16, 4.  Add adhesive along the 3/8″ score line and fold over box to adhere.

  • Embellish the die cut tags with ribbon and twine and adhere to box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Berry Blessings Berry Basket Tutorial

Yesterday I shared a Sweet Strawberry berry basket. Today’s flavor is a blueberry version.
Stampin' Up! Berry Blessings and Sweet Strawberry berry basket gift ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
If you missed yesterday’s post all about the Sweet Strawberry basket you can view it HERE. Today I’m focusing on the blueberry basket which holds some delicious blueberry jam.

I have been creating so many fun projects with this bundle. I love the juicy paper designs and “wishing you the berry best” sentiment I used on the coordinating card.
Stampin' Up! Berry Blessings berry basket and coordinating note card gift set idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The gift card is a 3 x 6 piece of Pacific Point scored at 3″. I cut a 2 3/4 Basic White square and stamped the sentiment along the bottom with Pacific Point ink. I added a 2 3/4″ x 2″ piece of the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper and wrapped some navy ribbon (from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack) around and tied a bow. I adhered this layer to the card base. This little gift card can fit in the basket with the jam.

I made a coordinating card for the strawberry version as well.

Stampin' Up! Berry Blessings 3 x 3 note cards - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The dimensions for the strawberry card are the same except I added a 1/2 x 2 3/4 strip of DSP along with a punched flower like the tag on the jar of jam. Are you wondering where I got the twine? It’s actually white and is found in the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack.  Here’s today’s TIP…Use Stampin’ Blends to color the white twine any color you want! I used the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend to color it to coordinate. I am thrilled Stampin’ Up! brought the twine back.  Now you can make any color you want with some white twine and Stampin’ Blends!

As promised, here’s the details to make the berry basket:

Berry Basket Tutorial

Measurements:

  • Cardstock Base: 3 x 9 and 2 3/4 x 9 – score each at 3 and 6.
  • Cardstock rim: 1 x 9 and 1 x 4 1/4 – score each down the middle at 1/2
  • DSP (Berry Delightful)): cut 2 pieces 3 x 3, cut 2 pieces 2 3/4 x 3
    Stampin' Up! Berry Basket tutorial - visit juststampin.com for all the detail - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Directions:

  1. Fold and burnish the cardstock pieces.
  2. Layer the 2 3/4 x 9 piece across the middle of the 3 x 9 piece to form a cross. Adhere with Liquid Glue in the center.

  3. Turn over and adhere designer series paper to each panel. *Make sure the pattern is facing the right direction when the sides are pulled up.

  4. Use a bone folder to curl the strips to break up the fibers. Add liquid glue on each side of the score line.

  5. Start in the back and using the smaller strip fold over the back piece and join the two sides together leaving a little gap between.

  6. Use the long strip and start along the side overlapping the back piece and adhere the front and side pieces to form the basket.

    *This basket was made to fit the Stonewall Kitchen jars. You can alter the dimensions for any size jar. The Wild Maine Blueberry Jam from Stonewall Kitchen is the closest to homemade I’ve found!

This gift set is for a friend of mine who loves blueberry jam on her morning bagel! Prior to the pandemic she would come visit often and stay a few days each time. I always had this blueberry jam for her. I really miss her visits and wanted to let her know I’m thinking of her!

Which is your favorite flavor, strawberry or blueberry?
