Valentine Hamish Card.

Good evening Lovelies,

It is time again for me to share one of my cards with you all but before I do that, I would like to thank you all for your comments and visits to my last blog post, they mean a lot.   I know time is precious, so I really appreciate them even more so.   Hope this finds you all well.    O.k. onto to tonight's card.

This was made using another Sugar Nellie (Adoption Certificate) stamp I found a few weeks ago, whilst tidying up in my craftroom.   I know I said it was time to go back to more classic stamps but, I couldn't resist little 'Hamish' lol !!!   Well, here he is with some Valentines Day Flowers and a present.   The stamp is actually called 'birthday Hamish' but I thought he was just perfect for Valentine's Day !

Make a square base card from white cardstock.   Matt a smaller square of wine red and white heart paper onto it.   (The patterned paper 'Country Life' was given free with a craft magazine some time ago and is by Docrafts).

Die-cut two 'Wonky Squares' from white card and using the largest wonky square die, die-cut one square  from wine red card.   Using the largest die, draw around the outside edge of the die to make a slightly larger square, also from the wine red cardstock.   Cut this out.

Stamp 'Hamish' onto the smaller white square using a black ink pad.   Matt this onto wine coloured square.   Colour Hamish using the distress inks and water - Mowed lawn, Ripe persimmon,  Dried marigold, Scattered straw, Frayed burlap and Stormy sky.   Matt this onto the larger of the two white squares, then matt onto the larger wine red square.

Stamp Hamish three times onto some spare white card, using a black ink pad.   Colour with the distress inks and water, then cut out and 3D onto the original image, using silicone glue or sticky foam pads.

Put a small piece of wine card into the 'dots' embossing folder and emboss.   Rub a small amount of Imagination Craft's Gold Alchemy Wax over the surface of the dots.   From this, punch out two small

hearts and glue one to the top right and bottom left of Hamish.   3D  two of the small flowers in his bunch of flowers.

Die-cut four leaves and colour with the Jade Starlight paint.   Glue two paper flowers and the leaves to the bottom right corner of the base card.

Well there we have it my Lovelies, the card is finished.   Although this image is a 'birthday' image - (birthday Hamish' lol)  it is perfect for those Valentine cards.     Valentine's Day is not too far away lol!     Hope you like him.

Take good care of yourselves and I will be back soon with another card.

                                                           Love and Rainbows,

                                                            Hugs    Jennifer xx.
