Welcome Back Hey Chick & Introducing Hey Birthday Chick

Welcome to my Corner of the World

During Sale-A-Bration 2017, Stampin’ UP! was blown away by how much you loved the Hey Chick Stamp Set, so they decided to bring it back, {never seen this happen before} —along with coordinating dies and a completely new bundle created in the same style. These two bundles are only available for a limited time, from February 2nd thru to June 30th! and I am sharing some of the designs using them to introduce them and to inspire you.

The bundles have a stamp set with coordinating dies and have a 10% discount, but if you want to buy just the stamp set or the dies they are available separately.

Pretty Pink and Purple Parasols Friend Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I could not resist the literation for today’s card! I think that pink and purple is such a pretty combination especially when you use the pastel tones of those colors! I chose Blushing Bride and Highland Heather to create this ‘forever friends’ card and would be great to send to someone ‘just because’ …….. I love getting happy mail!

I have used the Under My Umbrella Stamp set on a fair few cards I have shared with you, I have included some links below so you can see them again.

Butterfly and Leaves Sympathy Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I have used the Touched My Heart Stamp Set so many times, I just love the lovely sweeping leaf images and the 3 greetings. I have used the sympathy stamp for today’s card but the design and colors would work well if you changed out for another.

With the exception of a couple of splashes of BumbleBee card and ribbon the rest of the card is very neutral, so you could change out for any card and ribbon you might have in your stash.

Very Versailles Trailing Leaves Thank You Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We try to keep our card nice and flat don’t we? Today I have actually scrunched up the card to make the decorative flower that is the main feature of this pretty thank you card.

I have used the Very Versailles Stamp Set such a lot, I really love the stamp with trailing leaves, it is so graceful and dainty and fills a lot of space on the card at the same time!

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.
