Free as a Bird ~ Vintage Thank you Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I was looking for a little vintage in today’s card and the sponging technique is one of the quickest and easiest ways to create this effect.

My stamp set is the Free as a Bird set, using one of the little birds, that lovely set of leaves (I am a bit of a softy for leaves!) and one of the 6 greetings in the set.  In fact this is a great set all around, with leaves, flowers, birds and greetings it gives you a fine choice to create cards for a variety of occasions.

Beautiful Friendship Thank You

welcome back to my corner of the world

Thought I would take a little break from Christmas today and share a nice, bright, sunny Daffodil Delight card featuring the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set.  The stamps in this set are known as DistINKtive  ~ they have been specially made to enable you to get different depths of color by just stamping each image once.

The stamp I used today reminds me very much of a hydrangea and it is a nice big stamp that fills my space perfectly!

Painted Harvest – Thanksgiving Sunflowers

welcome back to my corner of the world

The Painted Harvest Stamp Set was one of my absolute favorites this time last year, then new goodies come along which I am just as excited about , but I still love this set so time to use it for another thanksgiving themed card.

I used yellows and browns to make the flowers look like sunflowers, change out the greeting and this would make a great birthday card as well!

Magnolia Thank you ~ DSP Panel Card

welcome back to my corner of the world

Magnolias have become so popular this year – we had a Southern Magnolia in our garden at our former house, the blooms were superb but sadly only lasted about a day.  The leaves were a lovely, shiny deep green on the top side and  kinda gingery furry underneath – we loved them until they got into the pool and choked up the pool cleaner!

I have used  the lovely Magnolia Lane DSP for my focal point for my card today which was my thank you card for my  customers who shopped with me for their SU goodies in September.

Butterfly Gala and Mango Melody Thanks

welcome back to my corner of the world.

My favorite card to make is a Thank You one.  I have shared on more than one occasion how important I think saying thank you is and having a handmade card to do that is even better!

Today I have paired up the pretty Butterfly Gala Stamp Set with Mango Melody, a very bright and happy color and kept it very simple with a couple of punched butterflies and Gold Metallic Pearls

Magnolia Blooms, Scalloped Note Cards with a touch of Watercoloring

Hello Paper Crafting Friends ~ welcome back to my corner of the world.

Tucked away  on page 168 of the 2019 – 2020 Annual Catalog are some of the cutest notecards – they have a dainty scalloped edge to the card as well as the envelope.  The Scalloped Notecards and Envelope pack contains 20 cards with envelopes – 5 each of 4 different colors.

I chose to use these along with the Magnolia Blooms Stamp Set and some water color pencils to make the Thank You cards for my lovely customers who shopped with me for their Stampin’ UP! supplies in July.
