Thanksgiving Slimline Easel Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Happy Thanksgiving to all my wonderful readers. As an ex-pat Brit now living in North Texas, Thanksgiving is not a holiday that I was familiar with until we moved here just over 19 years ago. While it is a day for food and football it is also one for quiet reflection, thinking of the things that we are thankful for and I shall be doing just that!

Today’s card in another of the popular slimline fold cards, this time an easel fold card using some of the pretty autumn themed products in the 2020 August – December mini catalog……………. and showing you how it all goes together with a video tutorial.

Thanksgiving Card – Funfold with Leaves and Pumpkins

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We are in Thanksgiving week and while this year has not been the best there are things to be grateful for, starting with the health and wellbeing of family and friends, followed by having a roof over our heads and food on the table.

Today’s card features the Gather Together Stamp Set with the co-ordinating Gathered Leaves Dies. I love that stem of corn in the set as well as the cute little pumpkins and I used both on this card.

Pretty Blue Snowflake Christmas Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We have had some unseasonally warm weather here in North Texas, just last week we were out walking in shirtsleeves musing that it would never have been possible to walk without coats in November when we lived in our native UK! Well the weather has started to cool now and by all accounts we are due a cold front in the coming days, so it is time to think of some seasonal cards.

I am using the Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set for today’s Christmas Card along with some blues and greens and a twist of Snowflake Splendor Ribbon which has a very pretty iridescent effect.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and my card today would be perfect to send to friends and family members to celebrate this year. We might not be able to get together in person as we have in the past so a beautiful card will show them they are in our thoughts.

I have used the Celebration Tidings Stamp Set along with my very favorite Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pen, to color the pumpkins, leaves and berries.

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.
