Dragonfly Garden Thank You Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I found some scraps of decorative paper, I know they are from a long retired pack but I could not bare to waste them! I know many of us have ‘old stuff’ waiting patiently to be used, waiting their turn after we have played with the ‘new stuff’ – so let us not waste them – pick out a few of the colors for your ink and card and turn them into a pretty thank you card.

Simple and Elegant Birthday Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

When the 2021 – 2022 Annual Catalog was released I was immediately attracted by the Elegantly Said Stamp set. I just loved the stamp with the Jacobean design, with all the curls and loops ( it reminds me of a cross-stitch fire screen I once made) Today I have used it in a very simple but elegant birthday card although you could use any of the greetings in the set to create it for another occasion.

Sweet and Simple Tulip Birthday Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card is another in my Sweet and Simple series where I have set myself a little challenge using a small amount of equipment and supplies – kind of like one of those cookery shows where you are given 3 or 4 ingredients and you have to turn it into a spectacular 4 course meal! 

I think it meets my aim of using one stamp set, a couple of ink pads, an embellishment and a tool.

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.

Pretty Pumpkins ~ Contemporary Thanksgiving Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I seem to start a lot of my posts expressing my amazement on where we are in the year ~ next week will be Thanksgiving here in the US!! Today’s card uses the Pretty Pumpkin Stamp Set pairing Bermuda Bay with Soft Seafoam ~ some non-traditional colors which I think work very well together if you are looking to create something a little unusual.

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.
