Paper Hug – Inspirational Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

What a great sentiment for a card – it can be used for just about any occasion, especially one of those times when you feel like sending a card to someone you know needs cheering up, letting them know you are thinking about them.

This card is a bit of a punch fest – using 3 to create the embellishments in what is a very simple card.

BTW – with a new catalog comes a new offer to become part of the Stampin’ UP! family – check it out here!

Caring Thoughts Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Using the Celebrate with Flowers Stamp Set along with one of the greetings from the Bamboo Beauty Stamp set allowed me to create this ‘Caring Thoughts’ card which I think would be great as a get well or sympathy card or even a ‘just because’ card. The Early Expresso and Calypso Coral colors go so well together with a little touch of bling!

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!

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.

Creating a frame with Gilded Leafing Embellishment.

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Last week I shared an embossing technique using the new and beautiful Gilded Leafing Embellishment, this gives the most fantastic effect but is oh, so easy to do. Today I have another technique using double sided Tear and Tape to create a frame to make your card shine out!

I changed the color combination for the card in my video, just to show how different combinations look. I have also used the exclusive Sale-a-bration Corner Bouquet Stamp set which you can get for free with a $50 product order. If you buy the main supplies to create this card you will be able to choose this stamp set as your freebie!

Thinking of You card using your Scraps!

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I love to use the Designer Series Papers (DSP) on my cards – they give me color combination ideas and sometimes are the focus of my card. However – there always seems to be little scraps left over – far too beautiful to throw in the bin, so why not make them part of a card?

And that is exactly what I have done today, I had some scraps of the Ornate Garden DSP left over from the all- day crafting retreat I had in October, so out came the Rectangular Stamp Punch and a little Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.

Don’t forget that Stampin’ UP’s Year End Clearance starts today – click the pink purse to the right to check out the deals available!!
