Sailing Home Meets Country Club DSP ~ Guy Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

A couple of weeks ago I announced my product share for the 2020 Mini Catalog.  Today’s card uses the Country Club Designer Series Paper which is one of the papers in the share. The paper has golf themed images on one side but when you flip them over there are some more general plaid and fair isle patterns which are perfect for guy cards.

I love to make these multi layer cards it is a great way to use up scraps  as well as showcase the different designs in the package.

Happy Birthday To You – Embossing Resist with Ink Wash

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I was tidying up my work bench last week and while putting stuff away I put my hand on my Embossing Heat Tool – I realized I had not used it in such a long time!  I was very good though – I finished tidying up then I created today’s card.

I used one of the Sale-a-bration stamp sets – Happy Birthday to You – which you can get for free if you place a $50 product order thru my on-line store.  I used an emboss resist technique with an ink wash using Mint Macaron.

Daisy Lane ‘Smile’

Welcome back to my corner of the world

‘SMILE’ is such a lovely word to put on the front of a card – imagine opening the envelope, pulling out the card and seeing that word – would you not just smile at it?  I think I would.

The Daisy Lane Stamp Set has SMILE as one of its greetings, along with the very cheerful daisy flowers it just makes for such a very happy card!

Pressed Petals Easel Card with Sticky Notes

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Today’s card is all about my 200th video!  I chose an Easel card fun fold that has a calendar and a pad of sticky notes, so this will sit on your desk for a whole year!

I also used one of the 2020 Sale-a-bration items, the Small Bloom Punch and Here’s a Card Stamp set, that is in the 2020 Mini Catalog as well.  The Pressed Petal Specialty Designer Paper is so very pretty and I have added to the prettines with flowers, leaves, pearls and the very delicate Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  If you love the fold but don’t want to add the calendar and sticky notes I have included an idea for just making the card.   So enjoy………………………………

Christmas Roses ~ All Occasion Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I so love this Christmas Roses stamp set along with the Roses Dies.  Please don’t get caught up with the name of the stamp set – I have used it a lot for other occasions and today’s card makes me think of an anniversary card and since it is all gold ~ a 50th wedding anniversary!  But you don’t have to wait for someone to reach that momentous milestone – it would make a fabulous card to celebrate any anniversary or birthday – so go ahead and give it a go!

Pop of Petals Sympathy

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Sympathy cards are not really the ones we want to send but they do give huge comfort to the family.  Today’s card has a sympathy greeting but the design would work for any other occasion such as a birthday or thank you.

I chose the Pop of Petals and Kindness and Compassion stamp sets for this card as the Pop of Petals set is all images without any greetings.

Welcome back to my corner of the world

The 2020 Mini Catalog went live on January 4th as well as Sale-a-bration.

So what is Sale-a-bration??    It is a great way to get FREE stuff ~ for every $50 you spend on Stampin’ UP! goodies (exc shipping and tax)  – either from the Annual Catalog or the 2020 Mini  Catalog or even the Clearance Rack; you can choose a  Sale-a-bration catalog item and there are 12 different items to choose from ~ you can collect as many in one order as you want.

As a demonstrator I was able to place my order in December so I was able to get my hands on some of the free products ahead of time.  There are a couple of links to the right to get to both the new catalogs, if would like your own copies, click here  and I will send you them for FREE!

I made today’s card with one of those sets…..The Gang’s All Meer ~ the cutest set with Meerkats!!
