Patchwork Technique – Congratulations Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I am not entirely sure what to call the technique used on today’s card, so I have dubbed it a ‘Patchwork’ Technique. I wanted to use the Messages Dies in a different way and when I finished it looked like a patchwork!

The Many Messages Stamp Set with the coordinating Messages Dies are one of the most popular in the January to June 2021 Mini Catalog – and I can understand why – it allows you to create multiple greetings in one go, either use them all at once or keep a little stash if you need to quickly create a card.

Coloring Vellum with Blending Brushes ~ Super Elegant Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Blendering Brushes were added to the Stampin’ UP! tool chest at the beginning of this year and I have loved using them! This is the third technique I have shared featuring them and this time I am using the Square Vellum Doilies to show how you can make them any color to match your project.

I am also featuring the ‘soon to be retired’ Shimmer Paint, using it to produce a rich sheen to a piece of Very Vanilla Card as a background to the vellum……. and there is a video showing you how to do both techniques.!!

Butterfly Hydrangea Thank you Card ~ Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I always remember my grandmother having hydrangea bushes in her front garden with huge flower heads, I loved them then and love them still. When I came to live in North Texas I planted some in my front garden, although they grew they never really thrived and I never got the big flower heads I remember as a child.

The Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper gives me all the beautiful hydrangea’s I want and I have used it on today’s card. DSP is one of the first things I look at when a new catalog comes out – and I have to admit that over the years I have been a bit of a hoarder. A few years ago I made a promise to myself that I would use more!

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.
