Quick Pansy Notecard with cute Butterfly

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I have a great fondness for the packs of Note Cards and Envelopes, they are available in Basic White and Very Vanilla and you get 20 for just $7. I like them because they are all cut to size and scored – ready to fold in half and decorate making for a quick and easy start to my card making.

I used the Basic White Note cards for today’s card, I made some to send to my lovely May customers who shopped for their SU goodies with me and also as a ‘make and take’ for my recent catalog launch. I wanted to use the card as a little showcase for a few of the new products and colors.

2021 In-Color Sampler with Elegantly Said Stamp Set

Welcome to my Corner of the World

It is just over 3 weeks since the new 2021 -2022 Stampin’ UP! Catalog was launched and the new ‘in-colors’ released. Each year Stampin’ UP! introduces 5 colors that are available to us for 2 years, they are very carefully selected to meet current trends and we get ink, card, paper, ribbon and embellishments to coordinate everything together.

I am really rather taken with this years choices and created today’s card to show all 5 colors, with a little of the ribbon and the in-color jewels, along with the Elegantly Said Stamp Set. I did not use a greeting – let the colors and images do all the work.

Very Versailles Sympathy Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Sometimes we need a sympathy card, I know I have had to send out a some in the last couple of months, but it gives me a sense that at least I have done ‘something’ to acknowledge the loss a family is feeling.

It is difficult to judge what colors to use, black, or dark colors versus something a little brighter, I pondered on this and decided to go with Very Vanilla and Just Jade and use the peaceful trail of leaves from the Very Versailles Stamp Set.

Spring Time Thank You Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

A couple of weeks ago I designed a Spring themed scrapbook page for a blog hop, I had cut lots of pieces using the Pierced Blooms Dies from the Subtles family of Stampin’ UP! colors. Well when I finished the scrapbook page I had a bunch of pieces left over – never one to waste anything, I used them to make today’s card. Also it gives me the chance to show you how scrapbooking ideas and techniques can be used in your card making.

Although I made it into a thank you card, I think it would make a very pretty birthday card if you change out the greeting.

Another Easy Z-Fold Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card is probably the most versatile one I have ever put together! I think it would work great for the fellas in our lives, sympathy, get well, thinking of you, a ‘just because’ sort of card – just about anything – don’t you agree?

The images and greeting is from the Love of Leaves Stamp Set and I used the coordinating Stitched Leaves Dies to cut the little gold leaf accent.

Quick and Easy Z-fun fold card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I do love a fun fold and the quicker and easier the better! Today I have used a very simple Z fold and paired Pool Party with Rich Razzleberry, which I think is a great combination.

Today is the last day for the 2020 – 2021 Stampin UP! catalog – although all the products (with the exception of the Classic Label Punch ) I am using today are carrying over you might just have something on your wish list that will be here today but gone tomorrow!
