Wish for Everything Celebration Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card is a celebration card, I have used birthday but it would work equally as well for graduation or even a Father’s Day card. The Wish For Everything Stamp Set allows you to build up a greeting to meet whatever occasion you are celebrating.

My supplies are from the Jan – June Mini catalog as well as the new 2022 – 2023 Annual Catalog with the newly released Tahitian Tide Card. BTW – with a new catalog comes a new offer to become part of the Stampin’ UP! family – check it out here!

Thank you card using scraps of decorative paper and Layering Designs Vellum

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Stitched Greenery Embossing Plate ~ Product Spotlight

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Each time a new Stampin’ UP! catalog is issued I go thru it to see all the new goodies, each time I think I have seen everything that is available and then I start to discover things I missed! One of those is the focus of today’s card – tucked away on page 165 is a metal plate which really does not seem much – until you run it thru your Cut and Emboss Machine with a piece of card – and there it is ……. a beautiful, delicate pattern of little stitched leaves,

To bring the botanical theme thru I have embellished the card with a few flowers and greeting from the Flowers of Friendship Stamp Set and coordinating Flowers and Leaves Punch ( choose the bundle and save 10% – see the link below 🙂 )

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.

Cajun Craze is a color I seem to forget until Autumn, but it is a great color for masculine cards, especially if you pair it with Sahara Sand and Early Expresso! If you are regular reader of my blog you will know that I struggle with guy themed card but it you have the right stamp set and the right colors they are a lot easier to make. 🙂

I shall be so sorry to see the Soar Confidently Stamp Set retire but it will be available until June 30th – so you can still add it to your order!

When the August – December 2020 Mini Catalog was released one of the first stamp sets I set my heart on was Joyful Holly – I just loved all the ‘curlicues’ which are so graceful and elegant. So understandably I have used it on quite of cards this year, including todays card.
