Sale-a-bration ~ Courting Hippest Hippo’s

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We have a couple more days of Sale-a-bration ~ a chance to get free stuff when you place a qualifying order ~ for every $50 to $100 you spend you get to select free products from the Sale-A-Bration Summer 2022 Brochure. (see the link to the right) In the brochure, each item indicates if it requires a $50 or $100 purchase. Depending on the amount you spend, you’ll be able to mix and match the Sale-A-Bration items you earn. There are some fantastic options to choose from stamp sets, designer paper, and dies! – click here for more info on Sale-a-bration.

Eden’s Garden Anniversary Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I hope you all had a peaceful Christmas yesterday. We have been so focused on the Christmas holiday, but other occasions do happen around this time of year. Our son and daughter-in-law celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary a few days before Christmas, today I share the card we sent them.

I used one of the new stamp sets from the 2022 January – June Mini Catalog – Eden’s Garden – for their card which I am sharing today.

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.

Guy Card using Decorative Paper Layers

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card uses up some scraps of the World of Good Designer Series Paper (DSP) – I had been using this paper pack for another project and could not bear to waste scraps of this beautiful foiled paper.

I love to make these ‘panel’ cards – I simply take the DSP scraps and cut the background layers about an 1/8 larger (or sometimes a 1/4 larger if I want a wider boarder) I hear groans when I suggest cutting 1/8’s but with the Stampin’ UP! Paper Trimmer it is so easy to do because the marks are so clear for cutting.

1 Card 2 Occasions ~ Peony Garden ~ Panel Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I am having a bit of a ‘thing’ with the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper – the soft florals in Basic Grey, Grey Granite, Petal Pink and Whisper White are just gorgeous, so much so  I designed my July on-line class around this decorative paper.

I call this a ‘panel card’ because it is made up of several panels, showcasing several different designs, the paper takes up the entire design, with the Many Mates Stamp Set for the greetings. I also wanted to show that you could use the same design to meet multiple occasions by just changing out the greeting.
