The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

I pulled out my “go-to” floral set, Two-Tone Flora, for today’s card. I inked the solid image in Bubble Bath, a delicious shade of pink. The detailed overlay is Moody Mauve, which happens to coordinate beautifully with pink.  Leaves took care of the green requirement. The recently retired Soft Succulent was the perfect hue to compliment the pink. I used Basic Gray for the mat, and super sparkly gems for the silver requirement. As for black and white, it doesn’t get any easier than black ink and crisp white cardstock.

Nueve’s Notes

Hi, everyone! It’s me, Nueve. Sixxy and I went back to Oh-Hi-Oh last week. We got to show outside, even though it was cold in the morning. I won the best Boxer ribbon, and Sixxy won the next best Boxer ribbon.  Michelle sat down on the grass with me to get my picture taken.  She loves to cuddle and snuggle with me.  Michelle looks different ’cause her hair is different. Usually she has her hair pulled back so it looks like she has a tail. Her long hair was fun, though,  ’cause when she leaned over to fix my feet, it tickled my back and my side. We had fun.

Sixxy didn’t get to lay down for her picture. She had to stand up.  She was being bad and kept moving. Sometimes she gets that way.  I think it’s ’cause she’s a princess and expects to get her own way all the time.

I got to take my ‘corn with me to the show. I used it as a pillow while I rested.  I wanted to take it up to the show ring with me.  But once again, Mom made me leave my ‘corn behind. She said the judge doesn’t allow ‘corns in his show ring.

Sometimes doing what I am asked to do, like leaving my ‘corn behind, is hard to do.  But, I have to trust that my mom knows what is best for me. It’s part of the job.  I am a working dog.  I am Good Boy Nueve!

  1. Beautiful card and delightful post!

  2. Bubble Bath and Moody Mauve are a perfect match together, especially on your lovely card, Ann! I don’t have this bundle yet and I think you might have just enabled me once again. So pretty!

  3. Such a pretty card, Ann! I really like the textured layering of the white card base and the very subtle use of the black and gray.
    Xoxo, Fran

  11. Your card is beautiful and I so love all the Nueve ‘s tales, er tails? LOL

  12. Very pretty flowers on the card! I still need to use my Two-Tone Flora set. As usual Nueve made me happy just reading about winning again. Congratulations to Sixx for coming in second. How does a Princess do with coming in second to her brother? lol
