Any Occasion ‘Hello’ Card ~ In Good Taste

Welcome to my Corner of the World

In the past I have shared that I love Designer Series Paper (DSP), I have also admitted that I tend to be a bit of a hoarder, always thinking that I will have the perfect project for that ‘some day’ so would save it for another day! I am trying to mend my ways and have been using it more and more!

I shared a card on Wednesday which featured DSP and to prove I am reforming I have another to share today, featuring the ‘In Good Taste’ DSP ~ which has a variety of wood and tile effect prints that make perfect backgrounds as well as focal points.

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!

Welcome to my Corner of the World

‘Just Saying Hello’ – here is a card you can use for most any occasion – how wonderful to receive this and know that someone is thinking of you, particularly if you have not seen them in a while.

I broke out the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set along with the coordinating Tasteful Labels Dies for today’s card, choosing calm Pool Party and Basic Grey for my colors.

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!
