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.

Ornate Borders ~ Melon Mambo or Highland Heather?

During April we have had the early release of the Ornate Garden Suite which  will be in the new 2020 – 2021 Annual Catalog – I have shared a few other cards using the products in this suite – scroll on down for the links 🙂

Today I have just used the Ornate Borders Dies and the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder, no stampin’ , no ink, just letting the design and color do all the ‘talking’.  Both cards are the same – I have simply switched out Whisper White and Basic Black and thrown in a little splash of color.  Perfect for many different occasions.

From my Heart Valentine Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Just a couple of weeks away from Valentine’s day so today I have the perfect card for that special day – I was playing with some color combinations and really did not know which I preferred so I have included both in today’s post.  It just occurred to me that you could use this for an anniversary card, wouldn’t that be pretty?

I have chosen the Heartfelt Bundle which has the Heartfelt Stamp set and 2… yes ….2 coordinating punches! I played with some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter with Rhinestones Basic Jewels and some of the pretty Scalloped Lace with Pearl Basic Jewels working thru which combination I preferred most.  I have to say though, I ended up liking them both 🙂
