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.

Stamparatus with Budding Borders Thank You

welcome back to my corner of the world.

Every month I send a thank you card to all the wonderful customers who have shopped for their Stampin’ UP! supplies with me, either in person at classes and workshops or thru my on-line store ~ I am so grateful to you all…………. and you know who you are 🙂

My August card featured the  Budding Borders Stamp Set along with my Stamparatus which made my cards very quick to line up and get a good stampin’ finish.

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.

Peacock Tails with Floral Essence Birthday Card

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

Today’s card is the result of clearing off my work bench before going away on holiday!  At the end of July I was part of a Scrapbook blog hop and had decided to use the Detailed Peacock dies along with the Noble Peacock Specialty Paper.  Rather than cut into my specialty paper straight away I had a little practice with some regular card – just to see what it would look like and if it would work on the page I was designing.  Glad to say that it did – click here to see the results!

So now I was left with two perfectly cut pieces of Shaded Spruce card that I just could not bring myself to throw away!

BEE Thankful

What a cheerful little chappie this bee is – so cute offering a flower along with his thanks – don’t ask why I think this is a boy rather than a girl bee – it just looks like a little fella is my only reason!

The Bee Thankful set is a single stamp, it is nice and big so covers a lot of space, allowing you to make a quick thank you card!  I paired it with the 2018 -2020 In colors using the Stampin Write Markers

Fond Farewell ~ Dear Doily

We are in the last 7 days  for the Stampin UP! 2018 – 2019  annual catalog which means that stamp sets and other products will be retiring and there are some of my favorites among them.  So I am going to use my blog posts to share some of the things that are retiring – along with links so that you can put in your order so you don’t miss out.

Today’s I am offering 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, and a couple of ink pads.
