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!

Welcome to my Corner of the World

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.

Today I have a trio of parasols using the Pretty Parasol Stamp Set and Umbrella Builder Punch, paired with the lovely bright and cheerful Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.

Top o’ the Mornin’ To Ya!

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Wishing you a Happy St Patrick’s Day with a punch art shamrock – which is so very easy to do with a couple of the heart dies from the Stitched Be Mine Dies.

I also used the opportunity to use one of the new embossing folders that will be available April 1st – as a demonstrator I get to pre-order certain items – the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder is so very pretty I had to share it as soon as possible.

Welcome back to my corner of the world

When I saw the Power of Hope Bundle ~  one of the FREE Sale-a-bration gifts I just knew that I had to create today’s card. The bundle has the Power of Hope Stamp Set and the Stone 3D embossing folder and they really compliment one another. (see below how you can get this bundle for free)

The stamp set has a very strong oriental theme so, black and red are the perfect color combination with some beautiful gold embossing.
