Quick and Pretty Feminine Thank You Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Every year Stampin’ UP! has a new annual catalog with lots of new products and colors. So when we have some new stuff we say goodbye to some favorites. I have loved the Path of Petals Stamp Set, it has dainty flower images and a range of great greeting suitable for weddings, inspirational, thank you thru to sympathy.

This is a very quick card to make simple using card, stamps and ink. I chose Petal Pink and Early Expresso for my colors, mainly because I wanted to use that ‘oh so pretty’ Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon. It is not too late for you to add this stamp set to your order – it will be available until May 3rd!

Hello Friend – 2 Step Stampin’ Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card features the Queen Anne’s Lace Stamp Set, this has some very dainty flowery images and 6 great greetings in a lovely script – those who follow me know that I do love nice lettering :-). I chose to use the ‘Hello Friend’ one for this card as I think that this kind of card can be used for practically any occasion – wouldn’t it be lovely to open an envelope and find a simple and pretty hello inside!

Once again my color choices were decided by my ribbon drawer, I wanted to use the elegant Vanilla Metallic Edged ribbon, so then chose Vanilla for my card with Cinnamon Cider and Petal Pink to coordinate.
