Stampin’ UP! Splendid Day Card #4

Welcome to my Corner of the World

As a Stampin’ UP! demo I get my hands on new products about4 – 6 weeks ahead of their public release, I also get to attend events, virtual and in person, where Stampin’ UP! shares ideas and designs. So it was in June when I was able to get my hands on the Splendid Day Suite of products and was able to make several samples which I have shared in the last few weeks.

Punch Art Honey Bee – Vintage Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Very Versailles Shabby Chic Birthday Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Oh, I am so excited with today’s card – I made it for my sister’s birthday last week , I  wanted to do something ‘vintagy’ as that is very much her style. Unusually for me I have used two stamp sets for this card, Very Versailles and Artisan Textures (soon to retire – so order yours now!)
