Misty Moonlight Monochrome – Sweet and Simple Panel Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

When Stampin’ UP! gave us a heads up on the new 2020 – 2022 In-colors I knew that Misty Moonlight would be my favorite!  For a start off its blue ~ I love blue, next it is a nice soft medium dark blue – which works in so well with the other blues in the SU family.

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  – which is my Paper Trimmer.

Ombre Sponging with Stencils ~ Video Tutorial

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I like to try new things and as I browse through the Stampin’ UP! catalog ‘stuff’ takes my fancy and I will order  ‘it’ to try.  Then to my shame ‘it’ will sometimes just sit there for a while waiting its turn to be used.  The Basic Pattern Decorative Masks are one such thing – it has been sitting there for a while and earlier this week it was their turn to play a starring role in my video today!

When I started to write about this card I realized I had used the same inspirational greeting from the ‘Here’s A Card’ stamp set as my card on Friday – just shows you what a great sentiment it is! My video also shows how you can color ribbon with a Stampin Sponge.

Sailing Home Meets Country Club DSP ~ Guy Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

A couple of weeks ago I announced my product share for the 2020 Mini Catalog.  Today’s card uses the Country Club Designer Series Paper which is one of the papers in the share. The paper has golf themed images on one side but when you flip them over there are some more general plaid and fair isle patterns which are perfect for guy cards.

I love to make these multi layer cards it is a great way to use up scraps  as well as showcase the different designs in the package.

Pressed Petals Easel Card with Sticky Notes

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Today’s card is all about my 200th video!  I chose an Easel card fun fold that has a calendar and a pad of sticky notes, so this will sit on your desk for a whole year!

I also used one of the 2020 Sale-a-bration items, the Small Bloom Punch and Here’s a Card Stamp set, that is in the 2020 Mini Catalog as well.  The Pressed Petal Specialty Designer Paper is so very pretty and I have added to the prettines with flowers, leaves, pearls and the very delicate Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  If you love the fold but don’t want to add the calendar and sticky notes I have included an idea for just making the card.   So enjoy………………………………
