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.

I used the Forever Fern Stamp Set with the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set for my sentiment to create a simple but heartfelt card. I love this set, having used it for different occasions, you can scroll down a little way to find some links to other cards.

Path of Petals ~ Sympathy

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Today’s card uses some products that will be retiring in the coming weeks 😦   The  Path of Petals Stamp Set has some very pretty ‘wispy’ sort of flowers and leaves as well as some really useful greetings – and you know I love a stamp set with images and greetings!

I chose to use the sharing in your sorrow greeting for this one, sadly it is necessary to make cards for these occasions, but any of the greetings in this set would work in the space on  this card.

Soft and Elegant Soft Sea Foam with Very Versailles.

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I think I say this at the beginning of every month…… but can you believe it is March already?  Those of you who know me or have followed my blog know that I work for the largest retail tax preparation service in the USA.  This is my 18th year and as always this time of the year is pretty hectic, so doin’ a lil’ card crafting is an excellent way to de-stress and get my head out of the numbers and into some creativity.

Today’s card is one that I made some while ago, I just love the softness of the Very Versailles Stamp Set paired up with Soft Sea Foam and Sahara Sand with a tiny touch of Silver Foil.

Pop of Petals Sympathy

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Sympathy cards are not really the ones we want to send but they do give huge comfort to the family.  Today’s card has a sympathy greeting but the design would work for any other occasion such as a birthday or thank you.

I chose the Pop of Petals and Kindness and Compassion stamp sets for this card as the Pop of Petals set is all images without any greetings.
