Heat Embossing ~ Nature’s Prints meets Art Gallery Thank you Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today I have paired 2 stamp sets with one of new decorative paper packs from the 2023 Jan – April Mini Catalog. Heat Embossing is one of my favorite techniques and using it on decorative paper is something I had not done before, I created my card during a Facebook live recently and I am sharing that video with you in this post……….. Enjoy!

Timeless Greeting ~ Masculine Card Kit

Welcome to my Corner of the World

First of all Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers – I wish you, your family and friends a peaceful day.

I have said on many occasions that I struggle with cards for the fellas in my life…….. so imagine my delight when Stampin’ UP! introduced a new kit at our recent demonstrator get together called OnStage! The kit contains everything you need to make 8 cards, including envelopes, ink spot, clear block, embellishments, adhesives and an exclusive stamp set. Today I am sharing one of the two cards I made with the Timeless Greetings Kit ( I already posted one off before I could take a picture of it 🙂 )

If you are looking for a great Christmas gift for a friend or family member then this is one for you.

(link below if you missed them)

Daisy Garden – Thank You Card Idea

Having a standard recipe for the layers of a card can be a good start in the design process, today’s card follows a recipe I use quite a lot. That is my starting point, then I choose my colors and stamp set (s).

I may have shared in the past……………….. I love punches, they are one of the first things I look for when a new catalog comes out so while the layout is straightforward I have gone a little overboard with my punches. 🙂

Lovely Layers Vellum #1 meets Botanical Layers Stamp Set Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Tucked away on page 93 of the Annual Catalog is an unusual bundle – the Botanical Layers Stamp Set paired with the Lovely Layers Vellum.
