Lovely Lily Pad Patch Card ~ my new thing!

Welcome back to my corner of the world

This card started with a 3 x 2 3/4 piece of Old Olive card – it was a scrap of card that was sitting next to my Paper Trimmer.  I built up my decoupage lily design on this piece and then stuck it on a card base.  I have decided to call this a ‘Patch Card’

The design features 2 of the products from the 2020 Sale-a-bation catalog, the Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set and the coordinating  Lily Pad Dies ~ click here for more info on Sale-a-bration. I also sent this card to two of my team who celebrate an anniversary of joining Stampin’ UP! this month. Click here to learn more about joining my team

Top o’ the Mornin’ To Ya!

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Wishing you a Happy St Patrick’s Day with a punch art shamrock – which is so very easy to do with a couple of the heart dies from the Stitched Be Mine Dies.

I also used the opportunity to use one of the new embossing folders that will be available April 1st – as a demonstrator I get to pre-order certain items – the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder is so very pretty I had to share it as soon as possible.

Twisted Fun Fold Card ~ Video Tutorial

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I do like to make fun fold cards – it stretches my imagination and allows me to make use of all the lovely Stampin’ UP! goodies in my stash.  I have used the Very Versailles stamp set along with the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.

I think it is so much easier to show you than to explain in words so the Twisted Fun Fold Card I am sharing today has a video as well as a downloadable PDF recipe for you.

Poppy Moments Birthday

Welcome back to my corner of the world

The Peaceful Poppies Suite is one of the most popular in the 2020 Mini catalog.  It has 2 stamp sets, 2 die sets, Designer Series Paper, Ribbon and Embellishments – all coordinating to make your crafting fun.

I chose to use the Poppy Moments Dies for this card – no stamping just letting the dies and embossing do all the work.

Family Love Garden Lane Sampler

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I love practically any type of papercrafting but I think my most ‘favoritest’  are samplers or  frameart, you can put lots of different items and techniques onto them without them appearing ‘over the top’

The sampler I am sharing today is one of the projects from my annual Stampin Getaway last October and features the serene Garden Lane DSP along with a whole host of punches,dies, ribbons and embellishments.

Rooted in Nature, Panel Card for Guys

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Today’s card is one of those where I had some small pieces of Designer Series Paper so pulled out some coordinating card to create layers and build a panel card.

I love this method of card making – it brings in lots of dimension and texture which is my style.  I decided to turn this into a guy card – but to be honest if I had flipped the DSP over and use the other flowery side it would work for a female card as well.

Soft and Elegant Soft Sea Foam with Very Versailles.

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I think I say this at the beginning of every month…… but can you believe it is March already?  Those of you who know me or have followed my blog know that I work for the largest retail tax preparation service in the USA.  This is my 18th year and as always this time of the year is pretty hectic, so doin’ a lil’ card crafting is an excellent way to de-stress and get my head out of the numbers and into some creativity.

Today’s card is one that I made some while ago, I just love the softness of the Very Versailles Stamp Set paired up with Soft Sea Foam and Sahara Sand with a tiny touch of Silver Foil.

Magnolia Lane Panel Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Petal Pink was one of the new colors Stampin’ UP! introduced in their 2018 color refresh ~ I have to admit that it did not appeal to me at the time and pretty much sat on the shelf – until Stampin’ UP! bought out an organdy ribbon in the 2019 -2020 Annual Catalog – that started my love affair with Petal Pink and I have used it very much – with and without the ribbon that inspired me!

Today’s card features the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper – I had some pieces left over from a project that I did not want to waste so I picked out the black and Petal Pink from the paper and the card came into being!
