I am thrilled to combine my two favorite challenges this week: The Paper Players and Freshly Made Sketches. The result is a quick and easy, clean and simple design which uses the Beautiful You stamp set. I hope you enjoy today’s little paper-pieced gal in red!
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
This folded card measures 5-1/2″ wide x 4-1/4″ tall.
- Cover your bases! A 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Thick Whisper White card stock was scored at 4-1/4″ to form the card base. The front was then covered with a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Diagonal Striped Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack.
- Lady in Red! The Glamour Girl image was stamped in Archival Basic Black Ink onto Whisper White card stock. She was then inked up and stamped again onto the Mini-Heart pattern from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack. The dress and hat were cut out and adhered onto the image which was stamped on the card stock. How much this reminded me of my paper doll days!
- The finishing touches! A cute little Basic Black Baker’s Twine bow adds a touch of texture. In keeping with the simplicity of the card, the sentiment was stamped directly onto the Designer Paper.
Beautiful You was a set I I knew I had to have the moment I saw it. I love to water color and paper piece, and this set is perfect for both. Plus, I absolutely adore the “Live, Laugh, Love” sentiment which is included as one of the sentiments.
I will be sending this card to Brady’s girlfriend who will soon be celebrating her birthday. I am tucking it in a box which contains a pair of LuLaRoe Giraffe pattern leggings (she loves giraffes) and a Paper Pumpkin kit. Since she is starting a new adventure in the state of Washington, I thought the Another Great Year kit would be a good one for her. Brady and I also did a little shopping for her at Goodwill, where he found an adorable little fox mug and two necklaces he thought she would like. I am so proud of him. On his limited budget, he found gifts that are truly from his heart and that he knows she will love.
As I leave you today, I want to let you know that Brody the Boxer had two lumps removed Monday. We have yet to receive the biopsy results, so we still have no idea as to the type and grades of the tumors. But on the bright side, after a wobbly start, he is doing great! He’s eating, drinking, and enjoying his short walks on these rainy days.
I just had to share this family picture taken Monday evening a few hours after he was brought home from the vet. Jackie, Kia and Muffy did not leave his side, and were quite concerned. In fact, we have all been sleeping on the floor, since he is not yet allowed to jump onto our very tall bed.
