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.

Just Wanted to Say Card and Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Well, tax season 21 is now in the books and I have the next 8 1/2 months to devote to my papercrafting 🙂 Don’t get me wrong – I love working with my tax clients but it is so intense I am glad when it is over!

Todays card is using the Wild Roses Background Stamp which is just perfect for my Stamparatus, along with the Floral Gallery Dies to create this 3D lettering with Foam Adhesive Sheets.

Soft and Subtle Easter Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Spring has sprung, we have sunny weather here in North Texas, and here we are in Easter Week. My card uses the ‘soon to retire’ Gift of Hope Stamp Set, with its peaceful church and dainty floral garland.

I associated Easter colors with green and purple, I don’t know why that would be but they just work for me so Highland Heather and Soft Seafoam feature in today’s card.

Super Soft Quick Floral Celebration Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

A couple of weeks ago I participated in a scrapbook blog hop, we had a free hand for the theme and I chose to do one for FAMILY. It was a cold and damp day when I designed the page and made me wish for spring so I pulled out some soft spring colors and the DistINKtive style Gorgeous Posies Stamp Set.

I just loved that page when it was finished, so decided to use the same design and colors, and that is what I am sharing today, it also shows scrapbook pages can inspire cards and vice versa!

Embossed Gilded Leafing Card and Video

Welcome to my Corner of the World

When the Stampin’ UP! Jan – June 2021 Mini Catalog came out in December there was a new product – Gilded Leafing Embellishment, a beautiful pot containing delicate and wispy pieces of a gold colored foil – which was bright and sparkly and I just love bright and sparkly!

I am working on a series of posts and videos sharing various designs and techniques for using this wonderful product – today shows a piece of gilded card which has been dry embossed …… stunning!

Delicate Gatefold Congratulations Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card was inspired by the Playing with Patterns Combo Ribbon Pack! ~ the combination of the Coastal Cabana and Night of Navy Ribbons was just perfect. This is the card I created for my niece’s 18th birthday earlier this month. I am not too much up on the likes and dislikes of young people reaching their majority but I know she is really not into lots of frills.

There is only a tiny bit of stamping for my greeting which comes from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set.

Posted for You – Mini One Sheet Wonder

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I love to share my love of papercrafting, partly thru my classes, blog and YouTube channel and when someone becomes a member of my demonstrator team. Last month there was a special joining offer and one of my ladies jumped at the chance. When someone does join my team I like to welcome them with a small handmade gift and card.

The Posted for You stamp set has the cutest of images and greetings, they allowed me to create a mini one sheet wonder to use as a focal point on both my card and gift and I had a piece left over to make a birthday card.
