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.

Inspiring Iris ~ Two Step Stampin’

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I have a real love of flowers, my dear Mum and dear Aunt both had ‘green’ thumbs, were enthusiastic gardeners  and had beautiful gardens.  The green thumb skipped a generation – I enjoy the garden when it is blooming but am certainly NOT an enthusiastic gardener, I am inspired by their example  because I love the result – not the doing!

We have the power to inspire people just as they inspire us so creating today’s  card was easy with the beautiful  Inspiring Iris Stamp Set.

Pretty Daffodil Delight Parasols

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I think when you send a card you send a little piece of your heart, when you send a handmade card, well that is just a little bit more ‘heart’ going into the envelope!

Today I have a trio of parasols using the Pretty Parasol Stamp Set and Umbrella Builder Punch, paired with the lovely bright and cheerful Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.

Introducing the Whale of a Time Suite ~ Stampin’ UP!

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Here we are on the threshold of summer and this suite kinda reminds me of summer holidays.  Make a splash with the effervescent seascapes with sweet sea creatures, whales, turtles, seahorses and jellyfish (although not too sure about the jellyfish being sweet!)

The Whale of a Time suite has a coordinating punch that will cut the whale as well as a great little water spray coming out of his water spout!  A DSP, the Seabed Embossing Folder, then some sequins and Pool Party Sheer Ribbon.  I think this will be perfect for cards for the younger people in our families!
