Forever Greenery Three Block Pop-Up Card – Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today I have a really lovely fun fold – it is so impressive but surprisingly easy to make, I have made a video tutorial to help you make one as well.

This fun fold is quite popular but most of the examples I found used 12 x 12 card and needed a custom envelope, which here in the US would have required additional postage – so I footled around to design one that uses a sheet of 11 x 8 1/2 and will fit into the regular 5 3/4 x 4 3/8 envelope!

Prized Peonies with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I have shared a number of cards using the Prized Peony Stamp set, today I share how great the images are for coloring with Stampin’ Blends and used the coordinating Peony Dies to cut my flowers and leaves as well as to add a very feminine scalloped edge to one of the layers.

The greetings in this stamp set cover sympathy, love and thanks, friendship and ‘thoughts’ ~ all very useful ones to have in your stash!

Field of Flowers ~ Sweet and Simple Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

From time to time I set myself a challenge to use paper and ink, one embellishment and one tool. Today is one of those days, the card is very straightforward but has as much impact as it would if I had used ‘the whole store’ to create it 🙂 #simplestamping

I just love the big “always” in the Field of Flowers Stamp Set – which also has a number of additional phrases to meet the most occasions. Today I have chosen to use the ‘thinking of you’ to finish my card.

Angled Z-Fold Card with Dandelion Wishes

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I do love a fun fold – today I have a fun fold with a different ‘angle’ in that the front panels are cut to form a sort of cascade. It has a wonderful impact and may seem a little complicated but with your Stampin Paper Trimmer and a well placed pencil mark to it super easy to create.

I have used Dandelion Wishes Stamp Set as I adore those wispy seed heads, along with one of the 2020 -2022 In Colors ~ Bumble Bee paired with Pacific Point.

Oh and there is also a video tutorial to go with it!

Rich Razzleberry Blossom in Blooms

Welcome to my Corner of the World

This is the 3rd card I have shared using the Blossoms in Bloom and Many Layers Blossom Dies, I think I am just lovin’ this bundle. The main stamp in the set covers the whole of the front of the card producing a delicate and feminine card.

I decided not to put a greeting on today’s card, although there are lots to choose from in the stamp set I figured this could be used for most any occasion.!

Peony with Borders Abound Best Wishes

Welcome to my Corner of the World

You all know I love flowers, I find myself reaching for dies and stamp sets that have them, so when we had a new set of Peony Dies in the 2020 -2021 Annual Catalog that produces a 3D peony – it was on my wish list in an instant!

At first glance the dies look a bit complex, but in truth they are so easy so I have produced a video tutorial to share the technique with you. I have paired this with one of the greetings from the Borders Abound Stamp Set.

Comfort and Hope ~ Paper Hugs

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Everyone needs a hug! Sometimes it is not possible to give one in person, here is an idea for sending a paper hug!

The Comfort and Hope Stamp set has a greeting that says exactly that, along with some super, creative texture stamps which I love to use. We used to have a stamp set called Gorgeous Grunge which was a ‘go to’ when I had some ‘space’ on a card that I needed to fill. I was sad when Gorgeous Grunge retired, but so happy to see this stamp set in the 2020 -2021 Annual Catalog.

Butterfly Wishes ~ Welcome

WELCOME TO MY CORNER OF THE WORLD

We recently had some new neighbors move into our sub-division, remembering how lost we felt when we arrived I like to leave a little card on their porch to just introduce ourselves.

I have had the Butterfly Wishes Stamp Set in my stash for a couple of months now but had not yet used it {shock/horror} …. and it has the perfect ‘WELCOME’ stamp!
