Introducing Bumblebee with Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Bumble Bee is the 3rd of the 5 new 2020 – 2022 In-colors I have featured so far.  I have paired it with a little Just Jade and the super scrummy Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper and the wooden accents from the In Good Taste Elements.

My greeting is from the very popular Forever Fern Stamp Set because I just love those words….. and it is a lovely script!  You could add any message to suit your need, as I think this would be a great birthday, thank you, thinking of you type card.

Twisted Fun Fold Card ~ Video Tutorial

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I do like to make fun fold cards – it stretches my imagination and allows me to make use of all the lovely Stampin’ UP! goodies in my stash.  I have used the Very Versailles stamp set along with the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.

I think it is so much easier to show you than to explain in words so the Twisted Fun Fold Card I am sharing today has a video as well as a downloadable PDF recipe for you.

Magnolia Lane Panel Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Petal Pink was one of the new colors Stampin’ UP! introduced in their 2018 color refresh ~ I have to admit that it did not appeal to me at the time and pretty much sat on the shelf – until Stampin’ UP! bought out an organdy ribbon in the 2019 -2020 Annual Catalog – that started my love affair with Petal Pink and I have used it very much – with and without the ribbon that inspired me!

Today’s card features the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper – I had some pieces left over from a project that I did not want to waste so I picked out the black and Petal Pink from the paper and the card came into being!

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.
