Flip over calendar ~ December Christmas Decoration

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Well here we are – December 1st and the final page of the flip over calendar for 2021. If you are a regular follower of my blog you will know that in the early part of last December I had a class to create a flip over calendar, everyone loved it and made me promise we will do another for 2022 – well that class is scheduled for this coming Saturday and Tuesday – all the design is done and supplies are cut!.

I have loved sharing each page at the start of each month and am seriously thinking of doing the same for the 2022 calendar. So today I share, December with Christmas lights and a tree ornament – very festive!

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!

Heat Embossed Air Ship Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know I struggle with cards for the fellas in our lives! So when I opened the Stampin UP! Jan – June 2021 Mini Catalog and saw the Soar Confidently Stamp set I knew it had to be on my wish list, it has the most perfect guy type images with an airship, hot air balloon and a biplane, along with some super images great for birthdays and father’s day.

I have used the airship on today’s card and stepped it up by heat embossing the image with gold.

Elegant Happy Christmas Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today is Christmas Eve – as my great- niece would be telling her Daddy today ‘ one more sleep until Father Christmas gets here’. I am spending my day with final preparation for tomorrow’s lunch and then settling down in front of the fire to watch some Christmas movies!

They say that less is more ~ not entirely sure I agree with that when it comes to card making but today I used a ready made card base from the Gold Cards and Envelopes Pack. It is Very Vanilla and has gold foil decoration on it, so that was my color choices decided, then a little dash of red to finish off! And, you know it was surprisingly quick to create all of the 10 cards that were in the pack!

‘Tis the Season Gift Tags

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Gift Tags are the one things I always seem to forget to either buy or make and have a last minute dash in the last few days of gift wrapping. I know we are only a third of the way thru October but I decided I might as well start early and tuck them away for a few weeks. (Keeping fingers crossed that I will remember where I put them!)

These are two very simple designs using the pretty and versitile ‘Tis the Season Designer Series Paper along with the perfectly aptly named Tag Buffet Stamp Set.

Power of Hope, Oriental Style Heat Embossed Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

When I saw the Power of Hope Bundle ~  one of the FREE Sale-a-bration gifts I just knew that I had to create today’s card. The bundle has the Power of Hope Stamp Set and the Stone 3D embossing folder and they really compliment one another. (see below how you can get this bundle for free)

The stamp set has a very strong oriental theme so, black and red are the perfect color combination with some beautiful gold embossing.

Christmastime is Here ~ part 2

welcome back to my corner of the world

Last week I shared the Christmastime is Here Suite and promised to share another card – once again I have focused on the gorgeous Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper – did I say last time that it had gold foil accents on one side? On today’s card I show one side of the paper with the foil accents and flip it over to show the pretty seasonal print on the other!

I just want to remind you though, that this suite is only available while supplies last so please don’t delay – order yours today! 🙂
