Forever Greenery Three Block Pop-Up Card – Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today I have a really lovely fun fold – it is so impressive but surprisingly easy to make, I have made a video tutorial to help you make one as well.

This fun fold is quite popular but most of the examples I found used 12 x 12 card and needed a custom envelope, which here in the US would have required additional postage – so I footled around to design one that uses a sheet of 11 x 8 1/2 and will fit into the regular 5 3/4 x 4 3/8 envelope!

‘Tis the Season Birthday Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Here we go with another of my ‘scrap’ cards ~ made with some left over pieces of Tis the Season designer series paper from another project. I cannot bear to waste these pieces and if I set them aside for ‘later’ they just accumulate – so I have got into the habit of using them straightaway!

I have used Christmas themed products from the 2020 August – December mini catalog to create a birthday card, it would be perfect for anytime but especially if you need a December birthday card!

Prized Peonies with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I have shared a number of cards using the Prized Peony Stamp set, today I share how great the images are for coloring with Stampin’ Blends and used the coordinating Peony Dies to cut my flowers and leaves as well as to add a very feminine scalloped edge to one of the layers.

The greetings in this stamp set cover sympathy, love and thanks, friendship and ‘thoughts’ ~ all very useful ones to have in your stash!

Field of Flowers ~ Sweet and Simple Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

From time to time I set myself a challenge to use paper and ink, one embellishment and one tool. Today is one of those days, the card is very straightforward but has as much impact as it would if I had used ‘the whole store’ to create it 🙂 #simplestamping

I just love the big “always” in the Field of Flowers Stamp Set – which also has a number of additional phrases to meet the most occasions. Today I have chosen to use the ‘thinking of you’ to finish my card.

Angled Z-Fold Card with Dandelion Wishes

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I do love a fun fold – today I have a fun fold with a different ‘angle’ in that the front panels are cut to form a sort of cascade. It has a wonderful impact and may seem a little complicated but with your Stampin Paper Trimmer and a well placed pencil mark to it super easy to create.

I have used Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set as I adore those wispy seed heads, along with one of the 2020 -2022 In Colors ~ Bumble Bee paired with Pacific Point.

Oh and there is also a video tutorial to go with it!
