Who doesn’t like an easy WOW card? I know I do, and this one fills the bill perfectly. Now keep in mind, easy does not mean it won’t take time. But I think you’ll agree, the time it takes to create this card using new In Colors, the new Colorful Seasons stamp set, and the new Seasonal Layers thinlits is worth it!
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
This finished card measures 5-1/2″ wide x 4-1/4″ tall when folded.
The Berry Burst Color Theory Designer Paper does all the work on this card. Just add the sentiment and let the crackled background do all the work!
Both stamped and die cut blossoms adorn this card. The stamped ones were created by inking the image with Berry Burst ink, then stamping off once. The Powder Pink cardstock die cuts were inked on the edges with Berry Burst ink using a Sponge Dauber. Of course, how could I resist adding pearls and rhinestones to this WOW card?
To add texture, a simple bow crafted from 1/2″ Berry Burst Finely Woven ribbon was added.

This card was created for a friend of mine who is going through some troubling times. In fact, it is heading out in the mail today. But as I sat down and created it yesterday, I thought how this card applies to me, too. I finally have some time to “Just Breathe”.
The American Boxer Club National Specialty has come and gone, and Jackie had a fabulous show. At the Awards Banquet, Jackie won the award for the most Bred By Exhibitor Wins in the United States. He then went on to defeat several Top Twenty boxers, including his sire, before eventually being eliminated.
I have said my good-by to Kendall the puppy, who is now with her co-owner in Canada. She leaves a happy, healthy, well socialized little girl. The plan is that she will rejoin me in a year to pursue her American title. Until then, I will watch her grow up from afar.
And I am enjoying every day I have left with Brody, who was diagnosed this spring with bladder cancer. His eyes are still bright and shiny, he is still playful, and he is tolerating his medication well. Other than wondering why the tears flow as I hold him close at night, he does not know there is anything wrong. We continue to create memories…
And so time goes on. For now, I am breathing and finding time to create once again. As always, if you have any questions about the cards I create, or the techniques I use, I am only an email away. Until next time…
