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!

Very Versailles Sympathy Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Sometimes we need a sympathy card, I know I have had to send out a some in the last couple of months, but it gives me a sense that at least I have done ‘something’ to acknowledge the loss a family is feeling.

It is difficult to judge what colors to use, black, or dark colors versus something a little brighter, I pondered on this and decided to go with Very Vanilla and Just Jade and use the peaceful trail of leaves from the Very Versailles Stamp Set.

Another Easy Z-Fold Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card is probably the most versatile one I have ever put together! I think it would work great for the fellas in our lives, sympathy, get well, thinking of you, a ‘just because’ sort of card – just about anything – don’t you agree?

The images and greeting is from the Love of Leaves Stamp Set and I used the coordinating Stitched Leaves Dies to cut the little gold leaf accent.

Hummingbird Thinking of You Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I made this card a few months ago using one of the Saleabration Stamp Sets, A Touch of Ink. While it is no longer available I thought I would still share it as I really like the layout which would lend itself to a stamp set you might have in your stash.

Soft Suede is a great neutral base color and can be paired with almost any of the colors in the Stampin’ UP! family, I added a strip of Scalloped Lace Trim to boost up the femininity but if you change out the Rococo Rose card for a more masculine color and drop the lace it would make a great guy card as well.

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!

Tranquil Sympathy Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I just love the Touched My Heart Stamp Set, I have used it for many different designs – including a Valentine Card, but today I am sharing a sympathy card. I think the combination of Purple Posy and Gray Granite work very well together for this type of card.

This stamp set it is available free if you place an order for $150 or if you host a party that has sales greater than $150.
