welcome back to my corner of the world

It’s always fantastic when Stampin’ Up! brings us new products and today I’m sharing one of them, so introducing the…………. Christmastime is Here Suite which was launched yesterday and has no ‘end date’ so you can purchase  ‘while stocks last’ !

Wonderfully Wicked ~ Storybook Fancy Fold

welcome back to my corner of the world.

Happy Halloween!  hard to believe we are at that time of year again – later today we will have the ‘littlies’ come knocking at the door to collect their candy (sweeties)  We just love to see them in their costumes.  It is due to be a cold evening so we shall be wrapped up ourselves waiting for them to come by.

So here is my final Halloween card for 2019 using the Storybook fun fold paired with some of the Monster Bash Suite of products from the 2019 Holiday catalog and a video to show how everything goes together.

Breast Cancer Courage Card

welcome back to my corner of the world.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I, as many of you, have friends that have either gone through this journey or maybe currently walking the path,  so this is my card to honor each and every one of them.

This design would work very well for any other the other ‘courage’ ribbons – simply change out the colors to the appropriate one.

Let’s Celebrate ~ For the Love of Felt

welcome back to my corner of the world.

So I have to confess and tell you today’s card is made with a stamp set that I ordered in error – I think I must have either misread the catalog number or twisted a couple of digits around!

For the Love of Felt Stamp Set was designed to be part of the For the Love of Felt Project kit, a fun kit with felt embellishments and other supplies to make 12 cards and a cute presentation box. ( I have added a link to the kit below in case you are interested!)

I guess I could have returned the set but I decided to make it work for me and came up with the following design……………..

Harvest Hello – Autumn Card

welcome back to my corner of the world.

I think it is safe to say that autumn has finally arrived in North Texas, we had a cold front come thru late last Tuesday which plummeted our daytime temp from mid 90’s down to the mid 40’s! and we had 1/2 of rain!

Today’s card features  a quintessential symbol of autumn – the pumpkin, the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set has a coordinating Apple Builder Punch which is just perfect for creating pumpkins.  I chose to use the ‘Hey There Pumpkin’ greeting  – there are several in the set to choose from although I feel ‘Hey there…’  would be great for a birthday card, maybe a ‘just because’ card.

So here we are a third of the way thru October!………..time to create Halloween card using this versatile set.

Rooted in Nature ~ Thinking of You

welcome back to my corner of the world.

Today’s card is one my ladies made in a recent Card Buffet – I get a lot of requests for ‘Get Well’, Sympathy and the like so I figure that ‘Thinking of You’ covers all those bases!  The Rooted in Nature stamp set is one I go to a lot – mainly because I just love that little cluster leaves stamp, and my colors are quite muted and not too jazzy so I think it would make a great guy card with a little change in the greeting.

Check out the links below for other cards made with this set.
