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.

*This stamp set also has a coordinating punch. You save 10% when you purchase the bundle.

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.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Wishes card idea for a friend - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I made this card for a friend I’ve known since high school! We met the day she transferred under let’s say “unusual” circumstances. We became fast friends when she took the rap for my popcorn in Chemistry. We still joke about it to this day! She loves winter but now that she lives in Florida she doesn’t see much snow. I thought I’d send her a little sparkle with this reminder of how much I treasure our friendship!
Stampin' Up! Snowflake Wishes card and popcorn box idea for a friend - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I wrapped some microwave popcorn with the gorgeous Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper and put it in an acetate card box with some twinkle lights. The card goes inside the box on the other side and hides the little battery pack for the lights. I wrapped it with the Snowflake Splendor Ribbon for a nice presentation.

Here’s a close up of the Winter Snow Embossed panel with the layered snowflakes, Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper and one of the Blue Adhesive Backed Gems to accent the center.

Today is Day 2 of my 12 Days of Giveaways! I enjoyed reading your comments about your favorite retiring items yesterday. I used to get so disappointed when some of my favorites were retiring; however, just because they are retiring doesn’t mean I have to stop using them. And I know that Stampin’ Up! will continue to come out with new products I will love just as much! *I usually don’t post projects I make with retired products because I wouldn’t want to disappoint anyone if they want to make it and it’s no longer available. If you have retired product and are looking for inspiration you can always type in the product name in the search button on my blog and see past projects I’ve created. Let’s get to today’s winner…..Congratulations to Denise Wekwert ! You get to choose a set of my exclusive tutorials from the list below. Let me know which one you want and I will email them to you! Thanks to all who left comments! I appreciate you stopping by and taking the time to share. There’s still 10 days left in my 12 Days of Giveaways and you could be the next winner!
