You’re One in a Million

Do you have a friend who is one in a million? Then you need to make this You’re One in a Million card! It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

You're One in a Million Card

This week the amazing Lauri is hosting our monthly Clean and Simple Challenge:  Cookies, Cupcakes and Cakes! How fun is that! Can you believe I did not have a cupcake or cake stamp in my collection? I was lucky to have a cookie.  I can’t wait to see what you create! I bet the gallery will be filled with cakes and cupcakes, as well as cookies! But remember, it’s a clean and simple challenge, so here is a quick reminder of what The Paper Players mean by Clean and Simple:

Minimal Layers and embellishments
Plenty of “open” space, also known as “white” space
Simple and uncluttered

Colors of the Day

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

I really did try to keep it clean and simple. I didn’t even color in my cookies!  However, I did bling one of them, giving it an ample number of “rhinestone” chips! I focused on playing with some of the items from the new Quite Curvy Bundle, which will be available for YOU to order beginning November 3rd, 2020 through January 4th, 2021.  It’s an early-release product from January–June 2021 Mini Catalog. Isn’t that curve awesome!

You're One in a Million Card

And how about that paper and sentiment?  Remember,  these items (the sentiment, Curvy dies, and Classic Christmas designer series paper) will not be available until November 3rd.  I know you will also want to add the Curvy Christmas photopolymer stamp set, which will also be available on that date, to your order, too!

  1. Such a great CAS card, love the pop of red!

  2. Cookies cookies cookies!! Yum – and such a cute design. Love the curved element that you added! 🙂

  3. I love a good cookie (or biscuit as we refer to them here in the UK – I know, your biscuits are something else – more like our scones, but I digress!!) and what nicer way to send a special card to someone, maybe with a sweet treat on the side! Love that sentiment – worth buying the new bundle for that alone! Great card Ann!

  4. What a fun card..cute images and sentiment!!

  5. What a cute card, Ann! The rhinestones definitely make that cookie one in a million, such a lovely card for a friend. I’ve rarely met a cookie I didn’t like, so I totally love this card!

  6. Ann, this is such a delightful card! Makes me smile. Thanks for the wonderful tutorial. You are the best 🙂

  7. Ok, I meant to say–I didn’t like! OMG I reread that and about died! Old teachers never die! LOL!

  8. Ann, I never met a cookie that I don’t like! This card is adorable. I love the red and white background and the little bites out of each cookie! SO FUN! Have a great week!

  9. ANY cookie is a good cookie to me (well, not coconut)…the white ones must be covered with icing! Delish confection!

  10. VERY cute card!! Great card to send to a friend to just keep in touch.
    I have & love the Nothings Better but now I NEED the Curvy Collection, too.

  11. This is way cool, Ann. I just HAVE to CASE it! Thank you for the tutorial.
