Quick Pansy Notecard with cute Butterfly

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I have a great fondness for the packs of Note Cards and Envelopes, they are available in Basic White and Very Vanilla and you get 20 for just $7. I like them because they are all cut to size and scored – ready to fold in half and decorate making for a quick and easy start to my card making.

I used the Basic White Note cards for today’s card, I made some to send to my lovely May customers who shopped for their SU goodies with me and also as a ‘make and take’ for my recent catalog launch. I wanted to use the card as a little showcase for a few of the new products and colors.

Super Simple Elegant Birthday Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card is very quick and easy using the Elegantly Said Stamp Set along with the stunning beautiful Simply Elegant Designer Series Paper, which has all the bling I need ~ copper, gold and silver foil on a black background.

I simply cut the paper with my paper trimmer, added some Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon and Matte Black Dots, a little stamping and the card is complete, sometimes less is simply more!

Quick and Easy Card made with Scraps

Welcome to my Corner of the World

HIghland Heather has featured a lot in my designs recently, I think it is because it is a nice springtime color and after the awful winter storm we had 4 weeks ago in North Texas I am in need of a little Spring!

Today’s card started out with a couple of 2 x 2 scraps of the True Love Designer Series Paper, I hate to waste scraps and they make a really great focal point!

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.

Field of Flowers ~ Sweet and Simple Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

From time to time I set myself a challenge to use paper and ink, one embellishment and one tool. Today is one of those days, the card is very straightforward but has as much impact as it would if I had used ‘the whole store’ to create it 🙂 #simplestamping

I just love the big “always” in the Field of Flowers Stamp Set – which also has a number of additional phrases to meet the most occasions. Today I have chosen to use the ‘thinking of you’ to finish my card.
