Here we go today with a Valentines card. I try to make ones for my husband that aren’t girly looking. I just love this little gnome so I went with it. This gnome die came out around Christmas but I consider it an all season gnome!
Pretty straight forward stuff on my card. Just a matter of picking the right colors for the gnome. I cut out the outline/mat of the gnome in the red then glued the pieces on it. The sentiment is die cut along with the heart. I die cut the heart twice and glued them together for a bit more dimension. The background is embossed using an embossing folder. I didn’t take a photo but I put some die cut hearts on the inside of the card also.

The first card I made two of them. One for my son and one for my Dad. The second I made for my hub during Hero Arts Scramble 126.
Card on the left..
For the background I used an Impression Obsession stamp Wooden Plank. I put two different colors of Distress Ink on the stamp and stamped that on white paper. The heart is a prize from Heather from one of the Hero Arts Scrambles. It is an Xcut die. The greeting is stamped on kraft either embossed or in Hero Arts Royal Red ink and from Hero Arts set Celebrate Every Day (CL498).
Card on the right…
This was for Betty’s Scramble and the theme was an inspiration photo.
I did hearts, branches and xoxo for my card.
Hero Arts stamps – Love Jar (CL673) & Everyday Sayings (CL342).
I stamped the jar with silver pigment ink and then created a mask to cover most of the lid so I could stamp the branches with Memento Rich Cocoa.
I used a Simon Says Stamp stencil called Balloon & Patterns to add the hearts. I used some white paste and added alcohol ink to color it. It was taking awhile to dry!
The sentiment is stamped with Hero Arts Royal Red ink which is probably my favorite ink color.
The background paper is from a 6X6 pad.
I am entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #38.
