Paper Hug – Inspirational Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

What a great sentiment for a card – it can be used for just about any occasion, especially one of those times when you feel like sending a card to someone you know needs cheering up, letting them know you are thinking about them.

This card is a bit of a punch fest – using 3 to create the embellishments in what is a very simple card.

BTW – with a new catalog comes a new offer to become part of the Stampin’ UP! family – check it out here!

Punch Art Honey Bee – Vintage Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

You have probably picked up over the years that I love punches! They are quick and easy to use – I used the Lady Bird Builder Punch to create the sweet little honey bee on today’s card.

While I am very fond of shabby chic/vintage style cards I don’t make them very often as I run out of ideas, however the ink sponging technique with a little water coloring is a great way to start. Read on to see the card and video on creating the honey bee.

Forever Fern Friend Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I have used the Forever Fern Stamp Set such a lot – I love those leaves and there are some lovely greetings to go along with them. Today I have paired it with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Decorative Paper, which itself has lots of leafy designs that work well with the stamps.

The ‘to a friend that makes me smile’ greeting is just so lovely – it can work for a birthday, thinking of you, get well or just because card – it just covers a host of different occasions.

Campology ~ a card for the guys in our lives

Welcome to my Corner of the World

My posts have been a little tardy this last week due to a bad case of allergies and asthma that landed me in urgent care yesterday morning when I should have been writing my post!! Well I am now dosed up with antibiotics and steroids (one of which was in my ‘sit-upon’ ) and ready to go again 🙂 I like to write my posts within 24 hours of posting them so I know I am including the most up to date information -so I don’t prepare them days or weeks in advance.

I have shared before that masculine cards have always been a bit of a challenge for me – well for someone who loves flowers and sparkles that is understandable I guess, but the Campology Stamp Set is a great one for the guys and that is what I am showcasing today!
