Pansy Stamps and Dies – hints and tips

Welcome to my Corner of the World

One of the new stamp set and die bundles in the 2021 – 2022 Annual Catalog is the Pansy Patch Bundle. It has the most lifelike and beautiful pansies that can be stamped by themselves or cut with the dies or indeed to cut out the separate pieces and assemble a beautiful flower.

At first this bundle might seem a little complex but it really is not and the intention of this post with the video tutorial is to introduce them and give you some hints and tips on using them – and you will be creating beautiful cards with them in no time 🙂

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.

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!

Gatefold Thank You Card.

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We always need thank you cards, I sent out a lot of those to friends, family and my wonderful SU customers. I have used one of the palest colors along side one of the darkest colors in the Stampin’ UP! color family today and they work so very well together!

Unusually for me I have used 2 different stamp sets for this card, but I think the design would work for almost any occasion, just change out the greeting and it would be a very pretty birthday or thinking of you card as well.

Simple Z-fold Valentine Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We are just a couple of weeks away from Valentine’s Day – it just seems a few days that we were celebrating Christmas!

Today’s card uses the Touched My Heart Stamp Set which is one of the sets you can get for free for hosting a party or if you place an order for $150 of Stampin UP goodies! I have been surprised on how versatile it has been, it has a beautiful heart stamp with leaves twisting and curling around it just perfect for Valentine or maybe a wedding or anniversary card. I have paired it with the Meant to Be Stamp set for my greeting.

Today I am sharing the card I sent to all my customers who attended my classes or shopped for their Stampin’ UP! goodies with me this year. I truly appreciate their enthusiasm and support in what has been a weird year for us all.

Christmas Ornament Contemporary Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

This time next week it will be Christmas Day!!! After a year of everything being turned on its head I am determined to hold onto some of my Christmas traditions, I have my trees decorated, lights on the outside of the house and a traditional (English) Christmas Lunch planned!

But sometimes I like a little ‘non-tradition’ to creep in, so I have a tree in my hall that is decorated in purples and pinks and chose to use similar colors for today’s card, Blackberry Bliss and Rococo Rose, to create this ‘lazy Z fold card’
