Butterfly Stencils ~ Any Occasion Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Not a lot of ‘stampin’ in today’s card, but lots of fun with ink! The new Jan – June 2022 Mini catalog has the Butterflies and flowers Layering Decorative Masks – which are basically stencils. I give a quick overview of the 6 that are the pack in my video which focusses on the butterfly sheets. It was such fun to work with these and I am sure I will have some other samples to share with you over the coming weeks.

Just Because Any Occasion Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

It is hard to believe this is my last post for 2021 – the year has simply flown by despite all the ‘issues’ we have all experienced!

I have chosen to use a the Tidings of Christmas Designer Paper to create a ‘Just Because’ card today. This paper is in the Annual Catalog and available year round, and although Christmas 2021 is behind us I wanted to use it for something other than a Christmas card (although you could add a Christmas greeting and it would work very well)

Forever Fern Friend Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I have used the Forever Fern Stamp Set such a lot – I love those leaves and there are some lovely greetings to go along with them. Today I have paired it with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Decorative Paper, which itself has lots of leafy designs that work well with the stamps.

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Sometimes a piece of decorative paper just tells you what you need to do with it! One of the designs in the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper Pack did just that when I clapped eyes on it – by simply cutting it into 6 pieces I had a 6 card front layers ready to attach to a card base! . This particular paper has beautiful plant designs and needed no more than a simple greeting to finish it off, a quick and easy card if you are in a rush.
