The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Today’s card is easier than one may think. Why?  Because I let the designer series paper do most of the work.  These sweet little birds? Yep, they are snipped from the Bird Ballad paper.

sweetly feminine thank you cardThe Polka Dot Petal Pink paper provides a sweetly feminine background for this trio of tweeters.

sweetly feminine thank you cardThe two larger blossoms were stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  They were colored to match the paper with Petal Pink and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends, and then snipped out with paper snips.  How about that nifty label?  Once the sentiment was stamped onto Pool Party cardstock, I used the smallest Stitched Nested Label die to cut it out.

2019 – 2020 Annual Catalog Product Shares

It’s Time to Reserve Your Annual Catalog Product Shares

2019-2020 Annual Catalog Product SharesWould you like to have all the new designer papers at a fraction of the cost of buying full packages? Are you like me, and would love to have all of the new ribbons, but an entire roll is way too much for you? Or, does owning sparkly embellishments make your heart go pitter-pat? Then my Annual Catalog Shares are for you!!!

Why should you participate in The Stampin’ Schach’s Annual Catalog Product Shares?

Here are three great reasons:

1. Packaging! Designer Papers are identified for you, so you don’t have to play “Which collection is this?” Ribbons are wrapped on bobbins or are hand-wrapped, not just thrown in a bag.
2. Amounts! You receive 6″ x 12″ rectangles of paper of the designer papers, except for the 6″ x 6″ paper stacks. That’s a plus for those of you who are memory keepers!
3. It’s a chance to sample a little bit of everything without breaking the bank!

How Shares Work

Shares are a way to sample the new Designer Series Papers, Ribbons, and Embellishments at a fraction of what it would cost you to purchase all of them yourself. And the nice thing is I do all the ordering, cutting, counting and re-packaging for you!

Simply EMAIL ME ([email protected] or [email protected]) to reserve your spot in a share. When your share fills (4 people), I will bill you via PayPal, or you may send a check. I will begin sending out PayPal invoices May 27th. Please let me know which share you would like, and the email address you would like me to use for PayPal invoicing.

On June 4th, I will place the orders for all filled shares. Once I receive the products, I will put the troops to work, and cut, count, measure and package up your goodies pronto! Because I want to get your shares mailed out as quickly as possible, I will expedite my order to Stampin’ Up! Your papers will be lovingly wrapped and identified; ribbons will be wrapped on plastic bobbins or hand-wrapped; and embellishments will be placed into small bags. Once this task is completed, your shares will be sent out via the US Postal Service. (United States residents only, please!) If you wish to be included in the first round of shares, please email me by June 2, 2019.

Beautiful Bouquet Thank You Card for PP441

How about a Beautiful Bouquet thank you card to brighten someone’s day? It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players.

Beautiful Bouquet thank you cardThis week, Joanne has a cheery color challenge for us.  These are colors that will surely brighten anyone’s day! Since I always need thank you cards, I hope you will enjoy this one I created using the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.

Beautiful Bouquet Thank You CardThe Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Sometimes the cards which look difficult to make, really are not. This is so true of today’s card. All it takes is time and a lot of cranking the Big Shot handle. I usually begin by stamping more flowers and die cutting more leaves than I think I will need.  After all, I can always save what I don’t use for another card.  I start by placing blossoms first, popping a few up on dimensionals. Then I add foliage into the spots where needed.

Beautiful Bouquet thank you cardClear faceted gems and large rhinestones add bling, while a Lovely Lipstick bow adds texture and helps to balance the challenge colors.

Beautiful Bouquet thank you cardWhat makes a better background for florals than the Basket Weave embossing folder? While I debated on using a Balmy Blue card base, I decided this embossed panel looked better on white.
