At Festive Friday, your goal is to use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. I selected sequins, glitter, doily, and rhinestones from the Inspo List in creating today’s card.  I hope you will join us in our challenge this week. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Today’s card is perfect for showcasing this beautiful new designer series paper collection, Ornate Garden. This paper is part of the fabulous Ornate Garden Suite.  This suite is from the upcoming new annual catalog, but you will be able to buy it right away as an early release beginning April 1st.

The  Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder, also part of this suite, makes a beautiful background, don’t you think?  And how about this gorgeous Old Olive ribbon?  It is also part of this collection.  Inked in Terracotta Tile, this sentiment from the Floral Essence stamp set will brighten anyone’s day.

Here’s a Dose of Puppy Cuteness…

Bed Buddies


Adorable Nueve


ONE has such a full tummy!


Tenn crosses her hind legs at the ankles…so cute!


Little Cinq snoozes away!

Sevin and Quatro share the water bowl

The pups are growing like little weeds.  As much work as they have been,  sadly they will be heading to their forever homes in two weeks, and a part of me will leave with them.  It doesn’t take them long to worm their way into your heart!

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…



  1. Great card, LOVE the embossed background!

  2. My goodness, those papers are just gorgeous – the colours, those flowers! What a gorgeous card you’ve made with them too with all your pretty details. Those pups have grown so fast haven’t they! Oh you will miss them but it will be lovely to see them go off to their caring forever homes. Vicky x

  3. Lots of colors on this yummy card. You’ve never made a crappy card yet so keep them coming. A joy to look at

  4. Grogeous, Ann … vibrant, texture-y, glimmery and with such lovely layers! Thanks so much for your visit and kind words! Anita 🙂

  5. Thanks so much for the photos of the puppies – they are so adorable! Love the card too.

  6. love your card anne!

    AND those pups? OMG so CUTE!! i’m not sure i could let them go …. i’d be a puppy hoarder …

  7. I absolutely love that dp! The piece of doily is such a pretty touch to the card! Those puppies are too cute!

  8. I have this suite and it is still untouched. You have used it beautifully. I have two packages of the doilies and always forget to incorporate them. You have given me inspiration! The pups are still so darn cute and growing like weeks. I love how they sleep on their backs. Our cat who crossed the Rainbow Bridge a year ago did that. Lord Chesterfield is unable to do that. He is a rescue and we believe he was abused as his bones are a little out of whack. He is well-loved now and is almost as smart as a pup! Have a blessed weekend.
