Welcome to my Corner of the World

At the moment Stampin’ UP! is in the last 3 weeks of Sale-a-bration where you can choose exclusive free products when you place a product order of at least $50. Today’s card features the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper and by using it to create this fun fold we can see both sides of the paper!

I have paired this with the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set and coordinating Strawberry Builder Punch, however there is not strawberry in sight – just to show you how versatile this bundle is…. oh and there is a video – so read on……………………..

Quick and Easy Z-fun fold card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I do love a fun fold and the quicker and easier the better! Today I have used a very simple Z fold and paired Pool Party with Rich Razzleberry, which I think is a great combination.

Today is the last day for the 2020 – 2021 Stampin UP! catalog – although all the products (with the exception of the Classic Label Punch ) I am using today are carrying over you might just have something on your wish list that will be here today but gone tomorrow!

Christmas Ornament Contemporary Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

This time next week it will be Christmas Day!!! After a year of everything being turned on its head I am determined to hold onto some of my Christmas traditions, I have my trees decorated, lights on the outside of the house and a traditional (English) Christmas Lunch planned!

But sometimes I like a little ‘non-tradition’ to creep in, so I have a tree in my hall that is decorated in purples and pinks and chose to use similar colors for today’s card, Blackberry Bliss and Rococo Rose, to create this ‘lazy Z fold card’

Forever Fern ~ Fun Fold

Welcome back to my corner of the world

When I saw that Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon had been carried over to the Annual Catalog I was so thrilled, it is 1/4 wide, has sparkly bits in it and ties the most scrummy bows!  As so often happens with me it was the starting point for today’s card.

I also used the Forever Fern Stamp Set again, this time with two shades of blue ( who said leaves had to be green?) This has the most wonderful variety of leaf images, so easy to build up a great design.

Positive Thoughts – inspired by a scarf!

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Welcome to June! I often share where my inspiration comes from – today my color combination is from a scarf  I wear as an accent during the winter months (too hot to wear scarves during North Texas summer months) I was putting it on one day and recognized Petal Pink then Smoky Slate and so today’s card was born!

I have used a  very simple, asymmetric, fold that showcases the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set along with the stunning Petal Pink Organdy Stripped Ribbon which made me fall in love with Petal Pink in the first place!

Come to Gather Pocket Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I hope you all had a peaceful Christmas, we spent some time ‘Face-timing’ with family in the UK with the grandchildren excitedly sharing what Father Christmas (Santa Claus) bought them for Christmas –  technology and the internet is a wonderful thing, especially at this time of year.

Today I have a fun fold to share – I used the Come to Gather Suite of products but change out the greetings and you could have a perfect birthday or thank you card. I have added video to show you how all the pieces go together…… so enjoy!
