Flip over calendar July 4th Celebration

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Last year I had such fun sharing my flip over calendar at the start of each month that I have decided to do the same for my 2022 calendar. This was designed for a stamp camp in November 2021, we had such fun making them and my ladies have made me promise to do another for 2022.

So today I share ~ Starburst July to celebrate July 4th, USA’s Independence Day.

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!

Touches of Texture ~ Team Anniversary Cards

I had a few of my team celebrate their Stampin’ UP! anniversary in March and I like to acknowledge their achievement and thank them for being part of my Corner of the World!

The Touches of Texture Stamp Set has been a firm favorite – for a start off it has flowers in it and lots of different parts so you can build up the flower(s) you want.  Secondly it also has some ‘texture’ stamps to fill in any spaces.

Sad to say this set is retiring at the end of May – so if it is one you have been thinking about getting now is the time to do it, there is a link to my on-line store a little further down this page.

Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet – hints and tips

On page 213 of the 2018 – 2019 Stampin’ UP! annual catalog are a variety of adhesives and one that is probably overlooked a lot but is one of the most useful ~ Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet,  Today’s card is made with the adhesive sheet and there is a video giving you some ideas on how to use it as well as some tips for using it successfully.

My card features the Beautiful You Stamp set and my one of my favorites of the new colors, Soft Sea Foam which I have partnered with Merry Merlot – which made a great combination (even if it did not appear so at first!)

Using 6 x 6 DSP with Springtime Impressions Thinlets

I cannot resist Designer Series Paper – it is almost always the top of my wish list when a new catalog is released.  I used to be reluctant to cut into a sheet and found I had become a  DSP hoarder!   I set myself a personal challenge a couple of years ago to use the paper and have shared many of the projects with you my readers…….. my accountability partners!

In July I hosted a DSP share, each participant getting a 6 x 6 piece of all the DSP’s in the 2018 -2019 Annual Catalog – plenty to create some beautiful projects – today’s card uses half of a 6 x 6 sheet of Garden  Impressions DSP and is the main decoration.

hunt logo

The treasure hunt finishes on October 25th, don’t miss out of this great chance for a Stampin Up shopping spree!!!!!!

My clue is: mp adhesive sheet

Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet Can be found on page 174 of the 2013 ~ 2014 Catalog 12 sheets of 12 x 12 adhesive for $14.95 It goes a long way, cut a piece the right size for your project, remove the backing sheet adhere it to you cardstock then remove the second backing sheet to reveal the adhesive. Great for sticking 2 pieces of card stock together for a good solid bond or sprinkling some dazzling diamonds or our new silver/gold or black/orange glitters from the new holiday catalog.

I am working on 2 special handmade gifts: one will go to someone who leaves a comment on my blog one will go to someone who follows my blog

Card using Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet

This is one of the cards from September’s Holiday Card Stamp Camp. It features the stamp set ‘lovely as a tree’, card stock is midnight muse and soft sky. The tree image was covered with the multipurpose adhesive sheet then dazzling diamonds glitter poured over the sticky surface. It gives a nice even coating of ‘bling’ and once stuck down ~ is going no where!
