Easy, Pansy Petals ‘Hello Friend’ Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I have shared the Pansy Petals Suite before, I love it with all the beautiful pansies. The Designer Series Paper is really spectacular and to ensure its beauty I made it the main part of my card.

I paired the paper with the coordinating Pansy Patch Stamp Set along with the greeting from the Biggest Wish Stamp Set. Each month I send a thank you card to everyone who shops with me for the Stampin’ UP! goodies, and this is the one I made for my June customers.

Slimline Silver Embossed Celebrate Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Last week my brother and sister-in-law celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary, which is silver! Neither of them are into delicate, dainty or fancy, so after much thought and a stroll thru my stamp sets I decided the Stacked Stone Stamp would make a fantastic background with some elegant leaves from the Artistic Dies.

To bring in the silver theme I heat embossed the Stacked Stone image with Silver Embossing Powder. I did not want to add too much bulk to the card as it has to be posted to the UK, so the heat embossing had a huge impact.

Elegant Multipanel Pop-out, Fancy Fold Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

One of the most stunning set of decorative papers in the 2021 – 2022 Annual Stampin’ UP! catalog is the Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper. It has beautiful neutrals which are the backdrop to silver, gold and copper gilding. Rather than using just one of the designs I looked for a fancy fold card where I could display as many of the different designs as possible and that is the card I share today.

I used the other coordinating products for this paper, the Elegantly Said Stamp Set and Elegant Tag Punch. I also chose to use Basic Gray and Gray Granite Card as a background.

Pretty Floral Birthday Card in Soft Greens

Welcome to my Corner of the World

After the strong, regal colors I used on Friday, today’s card features soft, subtle shades of Soft Seafoam and Soft Succulent. The colors go together beautifully and needed the softness of the Blossoms in Bloom Stamp Set to carry thru the subtleness I was going for.

I have chosen to make this a birthday card but it would be easy to change out the greeting to cover almost any other occasion. 🙂

Faux Watercolor Technique with Partial Embossing.

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I have a few techniques to share with just one card!! The first one is a faux watercolor technique using different ink colors, partial dry embossing where some parts of the card are embossed and others are not and as a finale – how to use your punch to create an alternate size label! It sounds a lot I know – the good news is there is a video to show how they all come together.
