Biggest Wish – Happy Birthday Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

A few weeks ago I did a product spotlight on the Stitched Greenery Embossing Die, I love the effect so used it again today to create this feminine birthday card.

I have used the Biggest Wish Stamp Set on several occasions, it very cleverly has 5 words each produced in block capital letters and in a pretty script, this way you can build up a greeting that suits your needs.

In the Wild Leafy Thank You Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I am getting very good at using my Designer Series Paper ~ I have shared in the past how much I love the decorative paper that Stampin’ UP offers and that I have a tendency to ‘save it’ rather than use it.

Today’s card uses some of the ‘In the Wild’ DSP which features tigers and leopards, but if you flip them over there are some lovely botanical and geometric designs which I chose to use, with just a simple greeting and a couple of punched leaves. I also used the Sweet Strawberry Bundle but there is not strawberry in sight!

Slimline Tri-Fold Birthday Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card was made for a very special friend, another UK ex-pat who I have known long before we both moved to the US. I was unable to visit her for 3 years, but this year I got to celebrate her birthday with her in PA – so naturally an extra-special card was needed!

I used a number of different techniques, sponging, embossing, die-cutting as well as some of the particularly luxurious materials , such as Gold Foil, Shimmer Vellum and Gilded Leaf embellishment

Textures & Frames with aTrio of Greens ~ Birthday Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

The Textures and Frames Stamp Set is featured in today’s card, one of the best things about this set is that you can get it for free if you place an order before Sept 30th 2021 as part of SALE-A-BRATION. To give you an idea on what you can do with this set I selected 3 of Stampin’ UP! greens and randomly stamped over a piece of Very Vanilla Card. When the card was all finished it struck me that it could be used for male or female, you could change out the colors, of course, but those greens are gonna work either way.
