Pretty Pink and Purple Parasols Friend Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I could not resist the literation for today’s card! I think that pink and purple is such a pretty combination especially when you use the pastel tones of those colors! I chose Blushing Bride and Highland Heather to create this ‘forever friends’ card and would be great to send to someone ‘just because’ …….. I love getting happy mail!

I have used the Under My Umbrella Stamp set on a fair few cards I have shared with you, I have included some links below so you can see them again.

Today’s inspirational card shares a couple of techniques and introduces the new Blending Brushes from Stampin’ UP!. I chose to use the Enjoy the Moment Stamp Set which has a great selection of plant type images as well as some useful greetings.

This card has two great and easy stamping techniques – tone-on-tone stampin’ and emboss resist, I have made a video to show how to combine them in one card!

Sweet and Simple Inspirational Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card is another in my Sweet and Simple series where I have set myself a little challenge using a small amount of equipment and supplies – kind of like one of those cookery shows where you are given 3 or 4 ingredients and you have to turn it into a spectacular 4 course meal! 

I think it meets my aim of using one stamp set, a couple of ink pads, an embellishment and a tool.

Forever Greenery Three Block Pop-Up Card – Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today I have a really lovely fun fold – it is so impressive but surprisingly easy to make, I have made a video tutorial to help you make one as well.

This fun fold is quite popular but most of the examples I found used 12 x 12 card and needed a custom envelope, which here in the US would have required additional postage – so I footled around to design one that uses a sheet of 11 x 8 1/2 and will fit into the regular 5 3/4 x 4 3/8 envelope!

Many Layered Blossoms Dies – Video Tutorial

Welcome back to my corner of the world

On page 174 of the 2020 Annual Catalog are a set of dies that produces the most stunning effect.  The Many Layered Blossoms Dies along with some Copper Foil and Adhesive Sheets allowed me to create this beautiful card.

I used Grey Granite  for my original sample, my husband’s  choice ~  I use Basic Black in my video to which produced a more dramatic effect. While I did a tiny bit of stamping with the coordinating Blossoms in Bloom Stamp set I think I could have got away without any stampin’ at all!
