Quick and Easy Guy Card ~ video tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today I am letting the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP) do all the hard work on this masculine card. I have shared with you before that I do find it a challenge to make card for the fellas so this pack of paper with its huge variety of textured patterns is perfect for these

This is a quick and easy card, using my paper trimmer and a couple of punches, along with the Here’s A Card Stamp Set.

Fall Themed Thank You Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Well the leaves are falling from the trees thick and fast now, yesterday morning my husband spent half an hour raking the leaves in the back garden – 2 hours later it looked as though he had never even started as there was a thick carpet of them again!

Today’s card, made using the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set with the coordinating Autumn Punch Pack (available as a bundle for 10% discount!!) It kind of reminds me of the autumn leaves falling.

Guy Card using Decorative Paper Layers

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card uses up some scraps of the World of Good Designer Series Paper (DSP) – I had been using this paper pack for another project and could not bear to waste scraps of this beautiful foiled paper.

I love to make these ‘panel’ cards – I simply take the DSP scraps and cut the background layers about an 1/8 larger (or sometimes a 1/4 larger if I want a wider boarder) I hear groans when I suggest cutting 1/8’s but with the Stampin’ UP! Paper Trimmer it is so easy to do because the marks are so clear for cutting.

Let’s Hear It For the Boys ~ Ink . Stamp . Share Blog Hop

Once again  I am thrilled to be taking part  in the Ink . Stamp . Share blog hop,  we are a group of Stampin’ Up!®️Demonstrators from around the globe here to bring you inspiration through creativity!

You will have either arrived from  Sandrine’s post or starting here ~ either way WELCOME . This month’s theme is ‘Lets Hear It For The Boys’

When I heard the theme of this month’s hop my mind went straight to the  Deniece Williams song from 1984  (that puts my a marker for my age!) ~ so knew I would use the Music From the Heart Stamp Set.

I recently made a birthday card for a friend’s husband who plays the guitar under the name of ‘The Winemaker’ using that set so that is the one I am sharing with you today.

Rooted in Nature, Panel Card for Guys

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Today’s card is one of those where I had some small pieces of Designer Series Paper so pulled out some coordinating card to create layers and build a panel card.

I love this method of card making – it brings in lots of dimension and texture which is my style.  I decided to turn this into a guy card – but to be honest if I had flipped the DSP over and use the other flowery side it would work for a female card as well.

Sailing Home Meets Country Club DSP ~ Guy Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

A couple of weeks ago I announced my product share for the 2020 Mini Catalog.  Today’s card uses the Country Club Designer Series Paper which is one of the papers in the share. The paper has golf themed images on one side but when you flip them over there are some more general plaid and fair isle patterns which are perfect for guy cards.

I love to make these multi layer cards it is a great way to use up scraps  as well as showcase the different designs in the package.
