Spring Time Thank You Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

A couple of weeks ago I designed a Spring themed scrapbook page for a blog hop, I had cut lots of pieces using the Pierced Blooms Dies from the Subtles family of Stampin’ UP! colors. Well when I finished the scrapbook page I had a bunch of pieces left over – never one to waste anything, I used them to make today’s card. Also it gives me the chance to show you how scrapbooking ideas and techniques can be used in your card making.

Although I made it into a thank you card, I think it would make a very pretty birthday card if you change out the greeting.

Another Easy Z-Fold Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card is probably the most versatile one I have ever put together! I think it would work great for the fellas in our lives, sympathy, get well, thinking of you, a ‘just because’ sort of card – just about anything – don’t you agree?

The images and greeting is from the Love of Leaves Stamp Set and I used the coordinating Stitched Leaves Dies to cut the little gold leaf accent.

Patchwork Technique – Congratulations Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I am not entirely sure what to call the technique used on today’s card, so I have dubbed it a ‘Patchwork’ Technique. I wanted to use the Messages Dies in a different way and when I finished it looked like a patchwork!

The Many Messages Stamp Set with the coordinating Messages Dies are one of the most popular in the January to June 2021 Mini Catalog – and I can understand why – it allows you to create multiple greetings in one go, either use them all at once or keep a little stash if you need to quickly create a card.

Quick and Easy Z-fun fold card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I do love a fun fold and the quicker and easier the better! Today I have used a very simple Z fold and paired Pool Party with Rich Razzleberry, which I think is a great combination.

Today is the last day for the 2020 – 2021 Stampin UP! catalog – although all the products (with the exception of the Classic Label Punch ) I am using today are carrying over you might just have something on your wish list that will be here today but gone tomorrow!

Flip over calendar ~ May

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Happy May 1st!

In the early part of last December I had a class to create a flip over calendar, everyone loved it and made me promise we will do another later in this new year! I thought I might start each month this year by posting the page for that month, so today I share, May which you can see has bright, cheerful tulips as its theme.

For the Love of Leaves Friendship Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

This card was inspired by my Stampin’ UP! mum, Jackie Ross. It uses the Love of Leaves Stamp Set and coordinating Stitched Leaves Dies. It is a great way to use your Designer Series Paper – I just love it and have a tendency to hoard it if I am not careful! You can get 4 pieces from a piece of 6 x 6 paper or 16 from a 12 x 12 piece – so imagine having one design and being able to create a bunch of cards for your stash!

Hummingbird Thinking of You Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I made this card a few months ago using one of the Saleabration Stamp Sets, A Touch of Ink. While it is no longer available I thought I would still share it as I really like the layout which would lend itself to a stamp set you might have in your stash.

Soft Suede is a great neutral base color and can be paired with almost any of the colors in the Stampin’ UP! family, I added a strip of Scalloped Lace Trim to boost up the femininity but if you change out the Rococo Rose card for a more masculine color and drop the lace it would make a great guy card as well.
