This week the fabulous LeAnne is hosting our monthly color challenge. What a lovely trio of soft colors she has selected for us:  Smoky Slate, So Saffron, Seaside Spray.  I decided to play with one of the new die sets from the  Annual Catalog, Stitched Triangles.  What a fun collection!  I hope you will join us in this week’s challenge. We can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Today’s card is a change from what I usually make – there are no flowers or ribbons!  However, it is full of texture, since I could not resist reaching for my new favorite embossing folder, Tasteful Textiles.  I also had fun playing with the Stitched Triangles dies.  I backed the spaces with Seaside Spray designer paper.  Because the geometric look was rather bold, I went for a bold thank you sentiment.  In retrospect, I wished I would have used a smaller sentiment.  But as they say, hindsight is 20 – 20. On the other hand, I do think this is a really versatile design, and I have a couple of ideas up my sleeve for it, which you will probably see in the very near future.

Floral Friendship Card

Are you looking to brighten up someone’s day? This floral friendship card will do the trick. It’s time to celebrate at Festive Friday challenges!

floral friendship card

For this week’s challenge,  we are inspired by the International Day of Friendship.  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion.  Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. I selected friendship sentiment, pink, green, flower, sparkle, ribbon, die cut, and embossing from this week’s Inspo List.  I hope you will join us in our challenge this week. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Up! Design Tips

For a relatively simple card, there are lots of fun details on this one.  I am in love with the new Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder, which I used on the white panel.  And what about the scalloped die cut? How nifty is that!  After coloring the flower with Stampin’ Blends, I liberally coated it with Clear Wink of Stella.  I felt that just a few Elegant Faceted Gems and a simple double bow were all that were needed for accents.

After I created this card, I decided the bow was a bit too much, so I carefully removed it and added an extra Elegant Faceted Gem, as you can see below. However, I let my husband choose which picture I should feature, and he picked the green bow version.  Which one do you like best – bow or no bow?

Double Z Fold Hello Card

Looking for a not so ordinary card for a special friend? How about this Double Z fold hello card? It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!
Double Z Fold Hello Card

This week I have the honor of being the host for our monthly theme challenge.  I selected Fun and Fancy Folds.  I went with an old favorite, a double Z fold card. I can’t wait to see what you create!

I suffer from “fun fold phobia”.  I see a fun fold, and think to myself, “That’s too hard! I could never do that!” But the double Z fold isn’t difficult at all!

double z fold hello card

It’s just a matter of scoring.  To make the task easier, I used 12″ x 12″ 2019-2021 In Color cardstock (Item #149703). This is a great fold for showcasing the luscious Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper. What really sets this card off are the gold accents from the Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty Paper.  Of course, a few Gilded Gems and a triple bow both help to up the WOW factor.  All of the details, including paper measurements, can be found in the FREE pdf tutorial.
