Caring Thoughts ~ Bamboo Themed Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

As a Stampin’ UP! demonstrator I get to see new catalogs and order new products ahead of their issue date, so when I saw the Bamboo Beauty Stamp Set on page 49 of the 2021 Annual Catalog it went on my wish list immediately, I just loved the graceful stems of bamboo and the simplicity of the leaves, plus it has 5 different greetings in the prettiest of fonts.

Today I have just used the leaves and one of the greetings in this simple card, which could be sent as a get well card or maybe for Sympathy or to someone who just needs to know you are thinking of them!

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Yesterday the new Stampin’ UP! catalog was launched with new papers, inks, stamp sets, ribbons, embellishments and tools.

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!

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!

Soft and Subtle Easter Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Spring has sprung, we have sunny weather here in North Texas, and here we are in Easter Week. My card uses the ‘soon to retire’ Gift of Hope Stamp Set, with its peaceful church and dainty floral garland.

I associated Easter colors with green and purple, I don’t know why that would be but they just work for me so Highland Heather and Soft Seafoam feature in today’s card.
