Hello Friend – 2 Step Stampin’ Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card features the Queen Anne’s Lace Stamp Set, this has some very dainty flowery images and 6 great greetings in a lovely script – those who follow me know that I do love nice lettering :-). I chose to use the ‘Hello Friend’ one for this card as I think that this kind of card can be used for practically any occasion – wouldn’t it be lovely to open an envelope and find a simple and pretty hello inside!

Once again my color choices were decided by my ribbon drawer, I wanted to use the elegant Vanilla Metallic Edged ribbon, so then chose Vanilla for my card with Cinnamon Cider and Petal Pink to coordinate.

Thinking of You card using your Scraps!

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I love to use the Designer Series Papers (DSP) on my cards – they give me color combination ideas and sometimes are the focus of my card. However – there always seems to be little scraps left over – far too beautiful to throw in the bin, so why not make them part of a card?

And that is exactly what I have done today, I had some scraps of the Ornate Garden DSP left over from the all- day crafting retreat I had in October, so out came the Rectangular Stamp Punch and a little Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.

Don’t forget that Stampin’ UP’s Year End Clearance starts today – click the pink purse to the right to check out the deals available!!

Just Saying Hello with Tasteful Touches

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I love to design my cards but there are times when I kinda draw a blank, either nothing comes to mind or too much comes to mind and I feel a bit overwhelmed. The Stampin’ UP! catalogs show us all the wonderful products available but did you know it is also a book of ideas? In fact when I first came across Stampin’ UP! in 2006 it was called an ‘Idea Book’ (and I still have that catalog in my stash!)

All that being said – I found today’s card tucked into those pages, I changed it a tiny bit (of course) but it is very close 🙂

Rich Razzleberry Blossom in Blooms

Welcome to my Corner of the World

This is the 3rd card I have shared using the Blossoms in Bloom and Many Layers Blossom Dies, I think I am just lovin’ this bundle. The main stamp in the set covers the whole of the front of the card producing a delicate and feminine card.

I decided not to put a greeting on today’s card, although there are lots to choose from in the stamp set I figured this could be used for most any occasion.!

Forever Fern ~ Sympathy Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

There are times we need a sympathy card, not the happiest of cards to make but Stampin’ UP! has colors and images that make it easy to design them.

I used the Forever Fern Stamp Set with the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set for my sentiment to create a simple but heartfelt card. I love this set, having used it for different occasions, you can scroll down a little way to find some links to other cards.

Many Layered Blossoms Dies – Video Tutorial

Welcome back to my corner of the world

On page 174 of the 2020 Annual Catalog are a set of dies that produces the most stunning effect.  The Many Layered Blossoms Dies along with some Copper Foil and Adhesive Sheets allowed me to create this beautiful card.

I used Grey Granite  for my original sample, my husband’s  choice ~  I use Basic Black in my video to which produced a more dramatic effect. While I did a tiny bit of stamping with the coordinating Blossoms in Bloom Stamp set I think I could have got away without any stampin’ at all!
