Misty Moonlight ~ Ornate Thanks

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Today’s card is so very feminine and uses one of my favorite color combinations, Blue and Vanilla, if you were to look in my wardrobe you would see a lot of this combination!

I have used the Ornate Thanks Bundle, the Ornate Thanks Stamp set has 3 big, bold greetings then a whole bunch of additional, supporting greetings in a beautiful script.  Then additional decoration using the Ornate Borders Dies, while these are available separately you can get 10% off if you buy the bundle!  Great Deal  🙂

Happy 4th!

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Today is Independence Day here in the US, I usually make a card to share with you, to wish America Happy Birthday!   My card is red, white and blue and I chose to use the pretty fern from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set in place of traditional images…. just to be a bit different.

Anyway, wishing all my readers, whether in the US or other parts of the world a Happy 4th!!

Celebrate Sunflowers with some Stampin’ Blends

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Happy July !!!!

Today I am back with sunflowers, this time in more traditional colors and breaking out my Stampin’ Blends to do a little soothing coloring.

There is a little bit of technique going on with this one in that I stamped my outline in Daffodil Delight ink but ‘stamped off’ before stampining onto a piece of Whisper White Thick Card.  This gave me a nice, softer outline in which to add my colors.

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?

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop ~ Embossing

Welcome to the  Ink & Share Scrapbook blog hop,  we are  group of international Stampin UP! demonstrators sharing our ideas and creativity with you.

You will have either arrived from Kirstie’s post or starting here ~ either way WELCOME.  This month our theme is EMBOSSING – I must confess that I really had to put my thinking cap on for this theme, I had done one last year and wanted to make sure I did something completely different.

Once again I have chosen to use a 12 x 12 page – mainly because Stampin’ UP! has 12 x 12 card stock in all its colors which gives me a fantastic choice.

Introducing the Whale of a Time Suite ~ Stampin’ UP!

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Here we are on the threshold of summer and this suite kinda reminds me of summer holidays.  Make a splash with the effervescent seascapes with sweet sea creatures, whales, turtles, seahorses and jellyfish (although not too sure about the jellyfish being sweet!)

The Whale of a Time suite has a coordinating punch that will cut the whale as well as a great little water spray coming out of his water spout!  A DSP, the Seabed Embossing Folder, then some sequins and Pool Party Sheer Ribbon.  I think this will be perfect for cards for the younger people in our families!

Umbrella Butterfly ~ Purple Posy and Blackberry Bliss

Welcome back to my corner of the world

A couple of weeks ago I shared a card using the Umbrella Builder Punch to create a punch art flower, I was so taken with the idea I decided to have another go at using it for something else ~ other than an umbrella so came up with today’s butterfly card.

This punch pairs with the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set, the large umbrella stamp created the wings, then I used one of the pretty little blossom stamps to create a decorative border with Sahara Sand ink.  I am really pleased with the combination of Purple Posy and Blackberry Bliss, the result of some musing while looking at my card stash 🙂
