Heat Embossed Air Ship Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know I struggle with cards for the fellas in our lives! So when I opened the Stampin UP! Jan – June 2021 Mini Catalog and saw the Soar Confidently Stamp set I knew it had to be on my wish list, it has the most perfect guy type images with an airship, hot air balloon and a biplane, along with some super images great for birthdays and father’s day.

I have used the airship on today’s card and stepped it up by heat embossing the image with gold.

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Spring has sprung, we have sunny weather here in North Texas, and here we are in Easter Week. My card uses the ‘soon to retire’ Gift of Hope Stamp Set, with its peaceful church and dainty floral garland.

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!
