Christmas Card with Swirly Stars

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I spent yesterday afternoon making mince pies – Christmas is just 12 days away. I have nearly everything done now, just need to get fresh veggies a little nearer the day! However I still do have a few more Christmas cards to send which is a little job for tomorrow or Wednesday.

This is one of the cards I designed for a recent Christmas Card Stamp Camp ~ I love the combination of Night of Navy, Basic White, silver embossing a little sparkle from the organdy ribbon.

Creating a Calendar Card with Days to Remember – Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

For the last 5 or 6 years I have created a flip over calendar using various Stampin’ UP! products, however the calendar part always defeated me in trimming and lining everything up – so I would buy the calendar parts. This year Stampin’ UP! introduced the Days to Remember Stamp Set which makes the whole process of stamping them ‘oh so very easy’ . Today I share a video on how I use this stamp set to create a calendar card and give you a sneak peak of my flip over calendar for 2022.

Harvest Meadow and Color and Contour Thank You Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I am doing it again ~ using my Designer Series Paper!!! This time I have pared the Color and Contour Stamp Set with Harvest Meadow DSP.

Each time a new catalog is launched I look at Punches, Ribbon and then the DSP before anything else. Now you may be wondering what I mean by DSP………. basically it is double-sided decorated paper similar to that used for scrapbook layouts – and I have used it for this but it also works to decorate your handmade greeting cards.

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!
