Caring Thoughts Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Using the Celebrate with Flowers Stamp Set along with one of the greetings from the Bamboo Beauty Stamp set allowed me to create this ‘Caring Thoughts’ card which I think would be great as a get well or sympathy card or even a ‘just because’ card. The Early Expresso and Calypso Coral colors go so well together with a little touch of bling!

Thank you for Everything – Seashells Embossing Folder Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

A change of theme for today – with Thanksgiving and Christmas on the horizon we are going to need some thank you cards. I chose to feature the Seashells 3D embossing folder, just adding a simple greeting so the details of this embossing folder do not get lost. 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!!

You will have either arrived from Jo’s  post or starting here ~ either way WELCOME.  This month are theme is ‘Travel’   ~ well in the current situation  this is defiantly a bit of a challenge – but here goes ……

I will admit I was struggling with this one as I don’t have any stamp sets etc that are ‘travel’ themed.  I was seeking inspiration and my eye fell on one of the sheets of 12 x 12 in the World of Good Designer Series Paper which has a map of the US and Canada…. and there it was – Alaska!

Pressed Petals Easel Card with Sticky Notes

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Today’s card is all about my 200th video!  I chose an Easel card fun fold that has a calendar and a pad of sticky notes, so this will sit on your desk for a whole year!

I also used one of the 2020 Sale-a-bration items, the Small Bloom Punch and Here’s a Card Stamp set, that is in the 2020 Mini Catalog as well.  The Pressed Petal Specialty Designer Paper is so very pretty and I have added to the prettines with flowers, leaves, pearls and the very delicate Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  If you love the fold but don’t want to add the calendar and sticky notes I have included an idea for just making the card.   So enjoy………………………………

Sweet and Simple ~ Truly Tailored

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!

Well today’s specatular card also bids a fond farewell to Emerald Envy – about to retire at the end of May.

I chose the Truly Tailored Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalog – perfect for guy type cards, birthday as well as for Father’s Day coming in June. Continue reading
