Just Wanted To Say

There is nothing better than a card to say anything you just wanted to say!  And I just wanted to say, it’s Sunday and time to play with The Paper Players!

Just wanted to sayThis week the amazing  Anne Marie is hosting our monthly sketch challenge. What a fabulous sketch she has for us! I absolutely love it. I thought it was perfect for showcasing the Country Bouquet bundle and Country Floral Lane designer series paper. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

The Country Bouquet bundle isn’t just for Valentine’s Day. While there are hearts galore and sentiments geared toward love, the “Just wanted to say…” sentiment could easily be paired with a variety of sentiments from other sets.  Simply use it on the front of the card and add a sentiment of your choice on the inside. Maybe you just wanted to say…hello or happy birthday or thank you or congratulations or I’m sorry or…you get the idea! Today’s sketch has a perfect placement for this sentiment.  Plus, it is a great one for showing off your favorite designer paper patterns.

  1. Ann, this sure is a fun card! Love how you used the Country Bouquet with that little pop of Radiating Stitches. The mix of pattern and texture…and LAYERS is just awesome on this card. Thanks for rocking my sketch this week! Wowza!

  2. Hi, Ann. I love the colors on this happy card – and all of the elements for added dimension!

  3. A lovely twist to the Country Floral Lane bundle, which I dearly love and actually have used quite a bit. Now I have another reason to get it out and make some more cards with it. Thanks, Ann!

  4. Ann, this is so fun! I love the red and white and that fabulous sentiment! The layered hearts are so fun! The linen thread always adds so much detail! I hope you have a great weekend!

  5. Ann, your card is lovely. You used one of my favorite suites of products. I really like how you layered the hearts and leaves.

  6. Love how you used these papers…the little focal point is just chock full of goodies to peruse! Adorable!

  7. You managed to use some of my favourite papers and hands down my favourite sentiment from the current mini catalogue – it works for literally everything! The hearts are the perfect accent and I’m loving the new EF too (might have to add that to my next shopping basket!)

  8. Ann, this is so colorful. I haven’t played with this set enough. I’m hoping it will be a carry over. Say “woof” for me to your working boy and Sixxy 🙂

    Adorable – look like little garden patches.
