Sweet and Simple Tulip Birthday Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card is another in my Sweet and Simple series where I have set myself a little challenge using a small amount of equipment and supplies – kind of like one of those cookery shows where you are given 3 or 4 ingredients and you have to turn it into a spectacular 4 course meal! 

I think it meets my aim of using one stamp set, a couple of ink pads, an embellishment and a tool.

Just Because Any Occasion Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

It is hard to believe this is my last post for 2021 – the year has simply flown by despite all the ‘issues’ we have all experienced!

I have chosen to use a the Tidings of Christmas Designer Paper to create a ‘Just Because’ card today. This paper is in the Annual Catalog and available year round, and although Christmas 2021 is behind us I wanted to use it for something other than a Christmas card (although you could add a Christmas greeting and it would work very well)

Blackberry Beauty “a little note’ Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Sometimes a piece of decorative paper just tells you what you need to do with it!

This particular paper has beautiful plant designs and needed no more than a simple greeting to finish it off, a quick and easy card if you are in a rush.

Butterflies and Feathers – Thank You Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I have used the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set a lot, I love the different images and it has some pretty greetings as well. I like to think out of the box for my color combinations, sometimes it is inspired by ribbon, decorative paper or scraps I find on my work station that just ‘look’ interesting and appealing. So that is how the Misty Moonlight and Mint Macaron used today came into being – scraps waiting to be tidied away 🙂

Hot Air Balloon – Guy themed card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Cajun Craze is a color I seem to forget until Autumn, but it is a great color for masculine cards, especially if you pair it with Sahara Sand and Early Expresso!

I shall be so sorry to see the Soar Confidently Stamp Set retire but it will be available until June 30th – so you can still add it to your order!
