Sunflower Thank You Card

Are you ready for the flowers of summer? Then look no more. This sunflower thank you card may be the day brightener you need. It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

Sunflower thank you card

This week, LeAnne has a wonderful sketch for us.  It’s one which is perfect for showcasing gorgeous designer series paper, like Flowers For Every Season,  new from Stampin’ Up!  It’s also perfect for highlighting a fabulous stamped image.  It’s just all around perfect, don’t you think? I can’t wait to see what you create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Sometimes you just need to let the paper do the talking, and that is exactly what I did with today’s card.  A Stitched So Sweetly rectangle, die cut from Bumblebee cardstock, coordinates perfectly with this sunflower pattern from the Flowers For Every Season designer series paper collection.  It features four new In Colors: Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight.

I am always needing thank you cards.  This thank you sentiment from the Parcels & Petals stamp set is one of my favorites. I LOVE the font.  After heat embossing it on Misty Moonlight cardstock,  I die cut it out using the label die from the coordinating Perfect Parcels die set. A snippet of Just Jade ribbon, a single Gold Glitter enamel dot, and a sticker from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More card pack are the perfect accents.

Would you like to have all the new designer papers at a fraction of the cost of buying full packages? Are you like me, and would love to have all of the new ribbons, but an entire roll is way too much for you? Or, does owning sparkly embellishments make your heart go pitter-pat? Then my Catalog Shares are for you!!!

Why should you participate in The Stampin’ Schach’s Annual  Catalog Shares?

Here are three great reasons:

1.  Packaging! Designer Papers are identified for you, so you don’t have to play “Which collection is this?” Ribbons are hand-wrapped and secured with a twist tie, not just thrown in a bag.
2.  Amounts! You receive 6″ x 12″ rectangles of paper of the designer papers, except for the 6″ x 6″ paper stacks. That’s a plus for those of you who are memory keepers!
3.  It’s a chance to sample a little bit of everything without breaking the bank!

How Shares Work

Shares are a way to sample the new Designer Series Papers, Ribbons, and Embellishments at a fraction of what it would cost you to purchase all of them yourself. And the nice thing is I do all the ordering, cutting, counting and re-packaging for you!

Simply EMAIL ME ( or to reserve your spot in a share. When your share fills (4 people), I will bill you via PayPal, or you may send a check. I will begin sending out PayPal invoices May 27th. Please let me know which share you would like, and the email address you would like me to use for PayPal invoicing.

On June 3rd, I will place the orders for all filled shares. Once I receive the products,  my husband and I will spring into to action,  cutting, counting, measuring and packaging up your goodies pronto! Because I want to get your shares mailed out as quickly as possible, I will expedite my order to Stampin’ Up! Your papers will be lovingly wrapped and identified; ribbons will be hand-wrapped and secured with a twist tie; and embellishments will be placed into small bags. Once this task is completed, your shares will be sent out via the US Postal Service.  (United States residents only, please!)  If you wish to be included in the first round of shares, please email me by Noon CST, June 2nd, 2020.
