Peaceful Place ~ Layered Panel Card Technique

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Stampin’ UP! has so many beautiful decorative papers available to us papercrafters. The Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Paper has some really stunning images that just cry out to be the center piece of your Christmas Cards.

As I explain in the video, there is one design in the pack that has the same image 4 times on one sheet of 12 x 12, creating a sheet 6 x 6 which I was not sure what to do with. I decided to use it to create 2 cards using a technique I call a Layered Panel – this post explains how I work out the cutting and sizes of layers to create 2 different layouts.

Fall Sampler Home Decor Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

This is the second in the series of seasonal samplers I was asked to design for a class. Home decor is a particular favorite of mine, I just love to pull together the different elements, experimenting with different textures and colors until I trip over the ‘right’ combination.

I resisted the temptation to use the ‘traditional’ autumn/fall colors of cajun craze and pumpkin pie, although I did not use any of the papers, the color combination was inspired by the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper so you will see Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and the different shade of gold in the Brushed Metallic Card.

Thank you for Everything – Seashells Embossing Folder Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I am thinking this would make a really good masculine thank you card…….. change out the greeting and it would be a perfect masculine birthday card as well!!
