Quick Pansy Notecard with cute Butterfly

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I have a great fondness for the packs of Note Cards and Envelopes, they are available in Basic White and Very Vanilla and you get 20 for just $7. I like them because they are all cut to size and scored – ready to fold in half and decorate making for a quick and easy start to my card making.

I used the Basic White Note cards for today’s card, I made some to send to my lovely May customers who shopped for their SU goodies with me and also as a ‘make and take’ for my recent catalog launch. I wanted to use the card as a little showcase for a few of the new products and colors.

Another Easy Z-Fold Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card is probably the most versatile one I have ever put together! I think it would work great for the fellas in our lives, sympathy, get well, thinking of you, a ‘just because’ sort of card – just about anything – don’t you agree?

The images and greeting is from the Love of Leaves Stamp Set and I used the coordinating Stitched Leaves Dies to cut the little gold leaf accent.

Gatefold Thank You Card.

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We always need thank you cards, I sent out a lot of those to friends, family and my wonderful SU customers. I have used one of the palest colors along side one of the darkest colors in the Stampin’ UP! color family today and they work so very well together!

Unusually for me I have used 2 different stamp sets for this card, but I think the design would work for almost any occasion, just change out the greeting and it would be a very pretty birthday or thinking of you card as well.

Thinking of You card using your Scraps!

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I love to use the Designer Series Papers (DSP) on my cards – they give me color combination ideas and sometimes are the focus of my card. However – there always seems to be little scraps left over – far too beautiful to throw in the bin, so why not make them part of a card?

And that is exactly what I have done today, I had some scraps of the Ornate Garden DSP left over from the all- day crafting retreat I had in October, so out came the Rectangular Stamp Punch and a little Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.

Don’t forget that Stampin’ UP’s Year End Clearance starts today – click the pink purse to the right to check out the deals available!!

Poinsettia Thank You Card ~ Easy One Sheet Wonder

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Happy December! Today I am mixing a little Christmas with a thank you card, we are all going to need to be sending thank yous over the coming weeks, and how much nicer would it be to send a card rather than an email or text! and I think this would be the perfect card to send.

Poinsettias are so ‘Christmas’, it is the only time we see them in the shops! I was playing around with the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set, just randomly stamping the petals on a sheet of Very Vanilla Card, before too long I had covered it with petals, leaves and little berries……. and voila I had a one sheet wonder!

Introducing Magenta Madness with an Inspirational Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Oh my gosh – Magenta Madness certainly packs some WOW factor!  I have to say that I was a bit doubtful of using all this color for my card today, don’t get me wrong – I love the color  – but have paired it with Smoky Slate to give a bit of  neutral support.

The Forever Fern Stamp Set has been so very popular since its debut at the beginning of June, it is part of the Forever Greenery Suite which invokes thoughts of lush greens – but I have taken the liberty of using Magenta Madness – ‘cos not all leaves have to be green, do they?
