All products are Stampin' Up.
The flower stamps are 'two-step' in that you stamp the solid background and then stamp again in a different colour for the detail. To enable accurate placement (wooden stamps obviously would not be an issue with clear ones) I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig.

Prior to going to SU class I had something similar but it was not as easy to use so I sold it and spent the money on the SU version. For a home-made stamp positioner I have seen people use lego and acetate/ plastic so that could be a very cheap option.

I have no connection to SU by the way, am not a demo or anything like that, so when I recommend their (or any other company's products) it is purely as a crafter.

Kraft card blanks by Papermania (I'm not entirely happy with the quality of these and much prefer the Woodware ones).
The flags are Hero Arts Friendly Flags clear stamps and I've pricked along the top to look like stitching.
Alphabet is Just Perfect by Stampin' Up.

A gift bag to match the card on the previous post.
Just the right size for a small bag of chocolates.

The back of the bag.

We made this at SU class. The plastic heart contains some chocolates and the tab on the right hand side releases them. A nice masculine Valentine's card.

We decorated the back of the card with leftovers from the front.

Pocket Card

We made this at SU class.
It's a pocket card/ mini book made from a sheet of A4 and embellised with stamping and punches.

This is something I have started but not yet finished and probably never will.
It's a Papermania mini album, they're only £3, and I have covered it with SU paper.

I think this is the card I'll give my husband this year for Valentine's Day. The album is meant to match if I have time to finish it before the 14th.
