Pretty Pumpkins ~ Contemporary Thanksgiving Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I seem to start a lot of my posts expressing my amazement on where we are in the year ~ next week will be Thanksgiving here in the US!!

Field of Flowers ~ Sweet and Simple Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

From time to time I set myself a challenge to use paper and ink, one embellishment and one tool. Today is one of those days, the card is very straightforward but has as much impact as it would if I had used ‘the whole store’ to create it 🙂 #simplestamping

I just love the big “always” in the Field of Flowers Stamp Set – which also has a number of additional phrases to meet the most occasions. Today I have chosen to use the ‘thinking of you’ to finish my card.

Peaceful Poppy Customer Thank You

Welcome back to my corner of the world

The other day I shared a little treat holder thank you for my customers who shopped for their SU goodies with me during March and April.  It was not practical for me to mail them to my on-line customera so today’s card is one I designed and sent to them.

It is an easy ‘Z’ fold and I used the lovely Poppy Moments Dies with the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper with Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Purple Posy for my color palette.

Magnolia Thank you ~ DSP Panel Card

welcome back to my corner of the world

Magnolias have become so popular this year – we had a Southern Magnolia in our garden at our former house, the blooms were superb but sadly only lasted about a day.  The leaves were a lovely, shiny deep green on the top side and  kinda gingery furry underneath – we loved them until they got into the pool and choked up the pool cleaner!

I have used  the lovely Magnolia Lane DSP for my focal point for my card today which was my thank you card for my  customers who shopped with me for their SU goodies in September.

My favorite card to make is a Thank You one.  I have shared on more than one occasion how important I think saying thank you is and having a handmade card to do that is even better!

Today I have paired up the pretty Butterfly Gala Stamp Set with Mango Melody, a very bright and happy color and kept it very simple with a couple of punched butterflies and Gold Metallic Pearls

Vibrant Vases ‘Just for You’ with Gorgeous Grape and Soft Suede

Hello Paper Crafting Friends ~ welcome back to my corner of the world.

Vibrant Vases Stamp Set gives you the chance to build up some very pretty designs, it also has the coordinating  Vases Builder Punch, although I have not used it on this card it is a very useful punch to have.

Today’s card is a simple card with a vase of flowers front and center, it also uses a blender pen technique to color the flowers.  I have used one of the sentiments which will work for a lot of occasions, birthday, thank you, thinking of you…. because any of these are ‘just for you’ 🙂
