Christmas Card with Swirly Stars

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I spent yesterday afternoon making mince pies – Christmas is just 12 days away. I have nearly everything done now, just need to get fresh veggies a little nearer the day! However I still do have a few more Christmas cards to send which is a little job for tomorrow or Wednesday.

This is one of the cards I designed for a recent Christmas Card Stamp Camp ~ I love the combination of Night of Navy, Basic White, silver embossing a little sparkle from the organdy ribbon.

Thank you for Everything – Seashells Embossing Folder Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

A change of theme for today – with Thanksgiving and Christmas on the horizon we are going to need some thank you cards. I chose to feature the Seashells 3D embossing folder, just adding a simple greeting so the details of this embossing folder do not get lost. I am thinking this would make a really good masculine thank you card…….. change out the greeting and it would be a perfect masculine birthday card as well!!

Flourishing Phrases – Night of Navy Sympathy

The Flourishing Phrases stamp set has a whole bunch of very useful greetings along with a lovely big floral stem, flower and leaf image that allows you to create some great cards.

Today I have chosen to use the with Sympathy one, however the colors and design could work very well with any of the greetings in the set.  A sympathy card is not one that we particularly want to make but there is a need and this image is really quite soothing.

Darling Label Punch Box ~ Stampin’ UP!

Today is a ‘twofer’ – two cards for the price of one!  One of the first things on my ‘wish list’ for the 2018 – 2019 Annual Catalog was the Darling Label Punch Box!  It is the cutest tin filled with crafting must-haves, add some card and adhesives and maybe a few embellishments and you are ready to start creating!

This box contains a 6-piece stamp set with a coordinating punch, a clear stamp block and two Stampin’ Spots ~ one in Grapefruit Grove,  the other in Night of Navy.  Both my card use the goodies from this 8 x 8 x 3 size tin plus some Designer Series Paper, ribbon and Metallic Pearls.  You gotta read on to see what I came up with……………………

Gift Cards and Framelits Dies …~… Stampin’ Up!

We were invited to a couple of weddings over the last few months.  It is always so difficult to choose a gift – even with a registry list it can be tough – sometimes the happy couple can be left with the high value gifts on their list, so we decided to give gift cards – these can be added together with others and put toward those high ticket items.

Giving a gift card on its own or in one of those cards from the store is never enough for me – so to make a pretty holder to present the card in is a must ~ I have 2 to share today. Continue reading

Punch Art No 9 ~ Uncle Sam

It has been a week or so since I last posted……  my computer went blank on me, just a white, winking arrow……nothing worked until a friend had a close look at it, fixed  and then gave me a severe lecture on NOT using ‘clean disk’ and ‘defrag’ 😦

But here we are nearly half way thru June already and July is knocking at the door.  That means Independence Day is about 3 weeks away.   Here is a perfect embellishment for a scrapbook page or card. Continue reading

Blueberry Pie ~ party favors

I always think blue, silver and white as New Year colors ~ not exclusively though, as I also have a Christmas tree decorated with ornaments in those colors.

I wanted to make some party favours for New Year and decided to use an idea of Connie Stewart’s from Simply Simple Stamping to make them in the shape of a slice of pie,and since I was using different shades of blue I have dubbed it ‘blueberry pie’  Continue reading
