Pretty Floral Birthday Card in Soft Greens

Welcome to my Corner of the World

After the strong, regal colors I used on Friday, today’s card features soft, subtle shades of Soft Seafoam and Soft Succulent. The colors go together beautifully and needed the softness of the Blossoms in Bloom Stamp Set to carry thru the subtleness I was going for.

I have chosen to make this a birthday card but it would be easy to change out the greeting to cover almost any other occasion. 🙂

Caring Thoughts ~ Bamboo Themed Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

As a Stampin’ UP! demonstrator I get to see new catalogs and order new products ahead of their issue date, so when I saw the Bamboo Beauty Stamp Set on page 49 of the 2021 Annual Catalog it went on my wish list immediately, I just loved the graceful stems of bamboo and the simplicity of the leaves, plus it has 5 different greetings in the prettiest of fonts.

Today I have just used the leaves and one of the greetings in this simple card, which could be sent as a get well card or maybe for Sympathy or to someone who just needs to know you are thinking of them!

Quick and Easy Card made with Scraps

Welcome to my Corner of the World

HIghland Heather has featured a lot in my designs recently, I think it is because it is a nice springtime color and after the awful winter storm we had 4 weeks ago in North Texas I am in need of a little Spring!

Today’s card started out with a couple of 2 x 2 scraps of the True Love Designer Series Paper, I hate to waste scraps and they make a really great focal point!

Gatefold Thank You Card.

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We always need thank you cards, I sent out a lot of those to friends, family and my wonderful SU customers. I have used one of the palest colors along side one of the darkest colors in the Stampin’ UP! color family today and they work so very well together!

Unusually for me I have used 2 different stamp sets for this card, but I think the design would work for almost any occasion, just change out the greeting and it would be a very pretty birthday or thinking of you card as well.

Happy Birthday with a Cross Stitch Bear

welcome back to my corner of the world.

Most crafters do  more than one craft, papercrafting is my first love closely followed by embroidery – mainly counted cross-stitch these days although I used to do a lot of free-form embroidery back in the day!

My great-niece turned 6 at the beginning of this month so I decided to  marry my two favorite crafts together by stitching a small piece then building a card base to fit it in – it was a lot of fun I might try it again sometime!
