Child’s Santa Card for PP455

Would you like to create a child’s Santa card for a special little someone this season? It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

child's Santa card

This week the talented Joanne is hosting our monthly Clean and Simple challenge. Her task for us is to create a Clean and Simple card for kids.  Since it’s never to early to get a head start on those holiday cards, I decided to create a child’s Santa card.  Enjoy this peek at the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set and Night Before Christmas designer paper…both available on September 4th!

Clean and Simple cards have minimal layers and embellishments,  plenty of open space,  and are simple and uncluttered.  While there are no traditional embellishments on this card, there is lots of texture to add interest. The Very Vanilla background has been embossed with the Bricks & Mortar 3D embossing folder. It’s symbolic of the chimney and fireplace Santa scrambles down in order to leave toys for the good girls and boys.

I couldn’t resist adding “fur” using Stampin’ Up!’s new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint.  It created a vision that I am sure any child will love. What do you think?

Easy Thank You Card for PP454

Looking for an easy thank you card? Look no more. It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

easy thank you cardThis week, the sweet and talented Jaydee is hosting our monthly color challenge.  She selected Black, White and one other color. For my color of choice, I picked Rich Razzleberry.  Today’s card is so easy and versatile.  I hope you enjoy it!

easy thank you card Colors of the Day
easy thank you cardThe Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

When I envisioned today’s card in my head,  I wanted to use a black and white polka dot patterned paper.  Alas, I had none. So I did the next best thing, and created my own using 1/2″ circles punched from Basic Black cardstock.  I liked the clean and simple look I created, and decided to leave the bottom section free of polka dots. This created the perfect place to stamp a sentiment.  Because I needed a thank you card, I selected the large “Thanks” sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia set.  All you need to do is switch out the sentiment to suit your fancy.

easy thank you cardA single blossom from the Floral Essence set, accented with three rhinestones, was all the sparkle this card needed.

Vintage Style Friendship Card for FF0040

What better way to let a friend know you are thinking of them than with a vintage style friendship card! Welcome to Festive Friday, where we are celebrating Senior Citizen’s Day and/or Retro/Vintage Style!

vintage friendship cardI elected to create a vintage style card.  I can’t wait to see what YOU create for this week’s challenge!

vintage style friendship cardThe Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Although today’s card may look difficult to create, it was very easy…especially when you let the paper do the talking!  This precious bird was simply snipped from one of the patterns in the Bird Ballad collection.  Pearls were used to accent the center of the flowers, and add to the vintage feel.

This card takes me back to the days when Brady was heading out to elementary school. I would always try to tuck something fun into his little back pack for him to discover.  He was such a dinosaur fan, and I know he would have LOVED this card. In fact, I am going to send it to him, even if it is 25 years too late. I know he will get a hoot out of it.

A masculine card with a sailing theme! Batten down the hatches! It’s time for the Stamp Review Crew Sailing Home Edition!

It’s time for the Stamp Review Crew: Sailing Home Edition! If this is your very first visit to one of our hops, the Stamp Review Crew is a group of international Stampin’ Up! demonstrators whose mission is to do a blog hop on the first, third and fifth Mondays of each month. Our hops are unique because each of us features the same stamp set used in a variety of ways, giving you loads of inspiration for that set. The hops are archived at the Stamp Review Crew blog. You will be able to click through each hop at any time, going directly to the posts for that hop, whenever you want.

This week we are featuring the Sailing Home set. If you are following along in order, you have just arrived from the amazing Mary Haugen.  Mary’s work is always a favorite of mine!  After visiting me, you will continue to the next stop, the talented Charlet Mallett.  I loves what she does. Be prepared to be inspired as you travel along on today’s hop!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

As I have with some of my other cards, I let the designer paper dictate the stamped image and the sentiment. I stamped the compass in Night of Navy, and added a silver foil needle.   Old Olive vellum seaweed and a Crumb Cake rope die cut draw the eye in.

Gold Embossed Thank You for The Paper Players

Looking for a gold embossed thank you that is fit for a queen? It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

gold embossed thank youI love a gold embossed card with a touch of elegance, and today’s gold embossed thank you card is indeed elegant and feminine. It features the Fanciful Fragrance stamp set from the Annual Catalog, a set which appeals to my vintage style.  I thought this trio of perfume bottles would be perfect for Anne Marie’s sketch challenge.  I hope you enjoy today’s post.

The unexpected! I usually do not think of gingham as being particularly elegant. However, this adorable Gingham pattern, in Crumb Cake, formed the perfect background for today’s card.  Obviously it coordinates well with both the Crumb Cake cardstock panel, which I embossed using the Scripty 3D folder, and the gold foil, which I added for a touch of elegance.
