In the Wild Leafy Thank You Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I am getting very good at using my Designer Series Paper ~ I have shared in the past how much I love the decorative paper that Stampin’ UP offers and that I have a tendency to ‘save it’ rather than use it.

Today’s card uses some of the ‘In the Wild’ DSP which features tigers and leopards, but if you flip them over there are some lovely botanical and geometric designs which I chose to use, with just a simple greeting and a couple of punched leaves. I also used the Sweet Strawberry Bundle but there is not strawberry in sight!

Textures & Frames with aTrio of Greens ~ Birthday Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

The Textures and Frames Stamp Set is featured in today’s card, one of the best things about this set is that you can get it for free if you place an order before Sept 30th 2021 as part of SALE-A-BRATION. To give you an idea on what you can do with this set I selected 3 of Stampin’ UP! greens and randomly stamped over a piece of Very Vanilla Card. When the card was all finished it struck me that it could be used for male or female, you could change out the colors, of course, but those greens are gonna work either way.

Any Occasion ‘Hello’ Card ~ In Good Taste

Welcome to my Corner of the World

In the past I have shared that I love Designer Series Paper (DSP), I have also admitted that I tend to be a bit of a hoarder, always thinking that I will have the perfect project for that ‘some day’ so would save it for another day! I am trying to mend my ways and have been using it more and more!

I shared a card on Wednesday which featured DSP and to prove I am reforming I have another to share today, featuring the ‘In Good Taste’ DSP ~ which has a variety of wood and tile effect prints that make perfect backgrounds as well as focal points.

Biggest Wish Super Simple Guy Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I am really taken with the Biggest Wish Stamp Set ~ I love that I can create nice, big greetings for my cards, this is especially true for today’s card as I made it for my nephew so that is not ‘over the top’ as he is not into fancy!

I chose to use some decorative paper with checks and pull the checks thru the card by using one of the new embossing folders. This is a very quick and simple card to make you could use the same sketch, changing out the decorative paper and card colors to create a card for any occasion.

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.

Cajun Craze is a color I seem to forget until Autumn, but it is a great color for masculine cards, especially if you pair it with Sahara Sand and Early Expresso!
