Elegant Multipanel Pop-out, Fancy Fold Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

One of the most stunning set of decorative papers in the 2021 – 2022 Annual Stampin’ UP! catalog is the Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper. It has beautiful neutrals which are the backdrop to silver, gold and copper gilding. Rather than using just one of the designs I looked for a fancy fold card where I could display as many of the different designs as possible and that is the card I share today.

I used the other coordinating products for this paper, the Elegantly Said Stamp Set and Elegant Tag Punch. I also chose to use Basic Gray and Gray Granite Card as a background.

Pretty Floral Birthday Card in Soft Greens

Welcome to my Corner of the World

After the strong, regal colors I used on Friday, today’s card features soft, subtle shades of Soft Seafoam and Soft Succulent. The colors go together beautifully and needed the softness of the Blossoms in Bloom Stamp Set to carry thru the subtleness I was going for.

I have chosen to make this a birthday card but it would be easy to change out the greeting to cover almost any other occasion. 🙂

Introducing Stampin’ Blends ~ Easy Techniques # 2

Welcome to my Corner of the World

A couple of weeks ago I posted my first video introducing Stampin’ Blends, as I explained at that time, Stampin Blends are alcohol markers and have been available for a few years now. Although I have some of them I have not really explored them very much. When one of my lovely customers asked me a question on them I was unable to give her a good answer and made the decision I was going to teach myself how to use them!

Rather than practice in private – I decided I was going to practice on video, starting with the basics and developing my skills in front of you, my wonderful readers! So this is the second is a series I am planning over the coming weeks – enjoy!

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.
