Dragonfly Garden Thank You Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I found some scraps of decorative paper, I know they are from a long retired pack but I could not bare to waste them! I know many of us have ‘old stuff’ waiting patiently to be used, waiting their turn after we have played with the ‘new stuff’ – so let us not waste them – pick out a few of the colors for your ink and card and turn them into a pretty thank you card.

Super Simple Elegant Birthday Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card is very quick and easy using the Elegantly Said Stamp Set along with the stunning beautiful Simply Elegant Designer Series Paper, which has all the bling I need ~ copper, gold and silver foil on a black background.

I simply cut the paper with my paper trimmer, added some Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon and Matte Black Dots, a little stamping and the card is complete, sometimes less is simply more!

Hummingbird Thinking of You Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I made this card a few months ago using one of the Saleabration Stamp Sets, A Touch of Ink. While it is no longer available I thought I would still share it as I really like the layout which would lend itself to a stamp set you might have in your stash.

Soft Suede is a great neutral base color and can be paired with almost any of the colors in the Stampin’ UP! family, I added a strip of Scalloped Lace Trim to boost up the femininity but if you change out the Rococo Rose card for a more masculine color and drop the lace it would make a great guy card as well.

Many Layered Blossoms Dies – Video Tutorial

Welcome back to my corner of the world

On page 174 of the 2020 Annual Catalog are a set of dies that produces the most stunning effect.  The Many Layered Blossoms Dies along with some Copper Foil and Adhesive Sheets allowed me to create this beautiful card.

I used Grey Granite  for my original sample, my husband’s  choice ~  I use Basic Black in my video to which produced a more dramatic effect. While I did a tiny bit of stamping with the coordinating Blossoms in Bloom Stamp set I think I could have got away without any stampin’ at all!

Farewell ~ Love and Affection from Stampin’ Up!

We are about 5 days away from say a fond farewell to the 2016 ~ 2017 catalog.  One of the set that is retiring is Love and Affection (which is still available as I write this 🙂 )

This is such a pretty set that I have used on a number of projects, with its little flower and leaf elements, you can build up a design and 3 lovely greetings in a lovely cursive font.  I have one more card to share which features heat embossing with the copper embossing powder. Continue reading
