Embossed Pearlescent Wedding Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We are on the verge of wedding season and I have several folks who are planning their ‘I do’ day over the coming months. Wherever possible I like to try to pick up on the wedding colors for the cards I make and send, however some weddings choose the neutral white or ivory. Today’s card is one that would work for any wedding theme as it is ivory with a little touch of gold.

Unusual Daffodils ~ Thank you card idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Last week I shared my technique for creating daffodils with the Daffodil Dies. As I explained in my video at the time I chose to use some ‘off the wall’ colors for my demo so that it would be easier for you to see how the different pieces went together.

As you know – I hate waste – and seeing those two ‘wild’ looking daffodils sitting on my work bench troubled me! so I pulled out some Basic Black card, did a touch of heat embossing and attached them to create this thank you card.

Sweet Symmetry Pretty Get Well Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I spend a lot of time looking thru the Stampin’ UP! Annual Catalog, and I look – I really do look and then suddenly something catches my eye I had not seen before……. ????? One of those ‘somethings’ is the Picture This Dies, tucked away on page 164 – thee are two dies in the set, one will cut circles and another that cuts rectangles to create interesting effects for your cards. Each of the circles and rectangles has a ‘stitched’ edge which gives it a beautiful finish.

Once the circles are cut it is really easy to attach a piece of decorative paper to the back and here is the result………….

Introducing Stampin’ Blends ~ Easy Techniques # 2

Welcome to my Corner of the World

A couple of weeks ago I posted my first video introducing Stampin’ Blends, as I explained at that time, Stampin Blends are alcohol markers and have been available for a few years now. Although I have some of them I have not really explored them very much. When one of my lovely customers asked me a question on them I was unable to give her a good answer and made the decision I was going to teach myself how to use them!

Rather than practice in private – I decided I was going to practice on video, starting with the basics and developing my skills in front of you, my wonderful readers! So this is the second is a series I am planning over the coming weeks – enjoy!
