The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Oh my gosh! Isn’t this the cutest little kitty ever! With her Smoky Slate fur, carrying her Petunia Pop flower, she looks sweet against this pattern of Summer Splash and Petunia Pop paper from the Unbounded Beauty designer series paper collection. The Fluffiest Friends stamp set and coordinating dies are adorable for sure, and are available as Online Exclusives. Although the Scalloped Contours dies and the Crosshatch embossing folder are now retired, I felt they were the perfect choices for our kitten’s backdrop. Of course, any embossing folder with a subtle pattern would work as well. Plus, there are a variety of options to use in place of the scalloped die cut, including just a simple Petunia Pop mat.
