Peaceful Place ~ Layered Panel Card Technique

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Stampin’ UP! has so many beautiful decorative papers available to us papercrafters. The Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Paper has some really stunning images that just cry out to be the center piece of your Christmas Cards.

As I explain in the video, there is one design in the pack that has the same image 4 times on one sheet of 12 x 12, creating a sheet 6 x 6 which I was not sure what to do with. I decided to use it to create 2 cards using a technique I call a Layered Panel – this post explains how I work out the cutting and sizes of layers to create 2 different layouts.

Blackberry Beauty “a little note’ Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Sometimes a piece of decorative paper just tells you what you need to do with it! One of the designs in the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper Pack did just that when I clapped eyes on it – by simply cutting it into 6 pieces I had a 6 card front layers ready to attach to a card base! . This particular paper has beautiful plant designs and needed no more than a simple greeting to finish it off, a quick and easy card if you are in a rush.

Poinsettia Thank You Card ~ Easy One Sheet Wonder

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Happy December! Today I am mixing a little Christmas with a thank you card, we are all going to need to be sending thank yous over the coming weeks, and how much nicer would it be to send a card rather than an email or text! and I think this would be the perfect card to send.

Poinsettias are so ‘Christmas’, it is the only time we see them in the shops! I was playing around with the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set, just randomly stamping the petals on a sheet of Very Vanilla Card, before too long I had covered it with petals, leaves and little berries……. and voila I had a one sheet wonder!

Posted for You – Mini One Sheet Wonder

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I love to share my love of papercrafting, partly thru my classes, blog and YouTube channel and when someone becomes a member of my demonstrator team. Last month there was a special joining offer and one of my ladies jumped at the chance. When someone does join my team I like to welcome them with a small handmade gift and card.

The Posted for You stamp set has the cutest of images and greetings, they allowed me to create a mini one sheet wonder to use as a focal point on both my card and gift and I had a piece left over to make a birthday card.

Playing with Patterns ~ 4 cards from 6 x 6 piece of DSP

Welcome back to my corner of the world

A couple of weeks ago I took part in the Ink . Stamp . Share Blog Hop and one of my fellow artisans showed a set of cards where a 6 x 6 piece of Designer Series Paper was cut into 4 pieces with odd angles.  I could not resist –  I just had to have a go,  it looked such fun and I got 4 great cards as a result.

I chose to use the Playing with Patterns Suite of products along with the Borders Abound Stamp Set. When I had done one set I was kind of hooked and chose another piece of decorative paper and coordinating card so now I have 3 sets of 4 cards.
