Super Cute Racoon Birthday Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I made this card earlier this year, I just love this little guy and chose colors I thought would appeal to the littlies in our lives. It uses a two-step stampin’ technique and to ensure I lined everything up properly I used my Stamparatus.

I think if you change out the greeting it would make a fantastic new baby card or even an anniversary card – the possibilities are endless.

Quick and Easy Guy Card ~ video tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today I am letting the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP) do all the hard work on this masculine card. I have shared with you before that I do find it a challenge to make card for the fellas so this pack of paper with its huge variety of textured patterns is perfect for these

This is a quick and easy card, using my paper trimmer and a couple of punches, along with the Here’s A Card Stamp Set.

Fall Themed Thank You Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Well the leaves are falling from the trees thick and fast now, yesterday morning my husband spent half an hour raking the leaves in the back garden – 2 hours later it looked as though he had never even started as there was a thick carpet of them again!

Today’s card, made using the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set with the coordinating Autumn Punch Pack (available as a bundle for 10% discount!!) It kind of reminds me of the autumn leaves falling.

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.

Delicate Gatefold Congratulations Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card was inspired by the Playing with Patterns Combo Ribbon Pack! ~ the combination of the Coastal Cabana and Night of Navy Ribbons was just perfect. This is the card I created for my niece’s 18th birthday earlier this month. I am not too much up on the likes and dislikes of young people reaching their majority but I know she is really not into lots of frills.

There is only a tiny bit of stamping for my greeting which comes from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set.

Posted for You – Mini One Sheet Wonder

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I love to share my love of papercrafting, partly thru my classes, blog and YouTube channel and when someone becomes a member of my demonstrator team. Last month there was a special joining offer and one of my ladies jumped at the chance. When someone does join my team I like to welcome them with a small handmade gift and card.

The Posted for You stamp set has the cutest of images and greetings, they allowed me to create a mini one sheet wonder to use as a focal point on both my card and gift and I had a piece left over to make a birthday card.
