It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players! The talented Sandy is hosting a sketch challenge this week. The moment I saw the sketch, I immediately thought of the From the Herd stamp set. So I pulled out my Blendabilities and went to town coloring this adorable image. I hope you enjoy today’s card.
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
This finished card measures 4-1/4″ wide by 5-1/2″ long.
- Peek-a-boo! This cutie-patootie herd of big-eyed animals resides behind the card front. The Soft Sky panel was punched using the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch, while I used a Circles Collection Framelit for the Whisper White card base. I used Blendabilities to color the critters.
- What’s a party without balloons and hats? The body of the goat and the head of the llama were stamped and colored a second time, snipped out, and adhered to the outside of the circle. For a touch of whimsy, the goat sports a trio of balloons tied to his tail, while the llama has donned a party hat.
- Add a birthday banner! A “Happy Birthday” banner was created, and tucked behind the goat. I used the Hexagon Punch to “V” the end. It’s a perfect “V” every time!
“Cute” cards are tough ones for me to design, so I really appreciate those who do a fabulous job with them. What about you? Is there a specific type of card that is a bugaboo for you? Won’t you let me know in your comment today? Your comments are important to me, and I do read each and every one of them. Of course, if you have any questions about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away. Until next time…
