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.

Gilded Floral Inspirational Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Todays card uses the Art Gallery Stamp Set and the beautiful Gilded Leafing Embellishment to create this very pretty and feminine inspirational card. I just love the Gilded Leafing, I am on my second pot of it!

This is the third card and technique I have shared with you on using this embellishment and I still have a few more up my sleeve to share in the coming weeks so keep watch 🙂

Royal Peacock – Inspirational Card

The choice of colors for today’s card was one of those happy accidents – inspired by the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots (pg 177 of Annual catalog) which fell out of the little box I had stored them in – the Lovely Lipstick ones in particular attracted me, although, to be honest they look more like Melon Mambo to me and that is the color I chose to pair with one of the new in-colors, Pretty Peacock which is just perfect for the stamp set I chose!

The Royal Peacock Stamp set has been so very popular and I am sure I will be sharing more cards with it but today it is the stamp that puts highlights on the peacocks tail that is the focus of my card, along with some gold heat embossing.

Heat Embossed Lovely Lattice – Sale-a-bration Goodies

This stamp set is true to its word – it is LOVELY ~ so serene and peaceful.  I chose to use heat-embossing to really highlight the delicate details.

The stamp set does not have any greetings so I chose to pair this with another of the Sale-a-bration item, the Part of My Story stamp set, which has 7 different greetings that would cover several occasions.

What excites me though is that I got both of these stamp sets for FREE as part of Stampin’ UP!’s annual promotion where by spending $50 on you get to choose from 11 different items for FREE. Read on for more information…………….

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
