Just Because Any Occasion Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

It is hard to believe this is my last post for 2021 – the year has simply flown by despite all the ‘issues’ we have all experienced!

I have chosen to use a the Tidings of Christmas Designer Paper to create a ‘Just Because’ card today. This paper is in the Annual Catalog and available year round, and although Christmas 2021 is behind us I wanted to use it for something other than a Christmas card (although you could add a Christmas greeting and it would work very well)

Eden’s Garden Anniversary Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I hope you all had a peaceful Christmas yesterday. We have been so focused on the Christmas holiday, but other occasions do happen around this time of year. Our son and daughter-in-law celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary a few days before Christmas, today I share the card we sent them.

I used one of the new stamp sets from the 2022 January – June Mini Catalog – Eden’s Garden – for their card which I am sharing today.

Field of Flowers ~ Sweet and Simple Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

From time to time I set myself a challenge to use paper and ink, one embellishment and one tool. Today is one of those days, the card is very straightforward but has as much impact as it would if I had used ‘the whole store’ to create it 🙂 #simplestamping

I just love the big “always” in the Field of Flowers Stamp Set – which also has a number of additional phrases to meet the most occasions. Today I have chosen to use the ‘thinking of you’ to finish my card.

Pineapple Punch and Sweetly Swirled ~ Thank You

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Yellow and black is another of my favorite color combinations – the yellow today is called Pineapple Punch and pairing it with Basic Black makes the color even more vibrant  and eye-catching.

I used the Sweetly Swirled stamp set to create today’s card – it has some really ‘arty’ swirly stamps, some flowers and leaves and some really useful greetings, I just relied on some paper, stamps and ink #simplestamping
