Stippled Blossoms for The Paper Players

IMG_1478It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players! This week, the talented Nance has a unique color challenge for us: Calypso Coral, Real Red, Basic Black. I pulled out one of my old favorites, Stippled Blossoms, and created a “Thinking of You” card for a friend who recently experienced a loss.  I hope she likes it.  Won’t you play along with us this week? If you don’t have these Stampin’ Up! colors, feel free to substitute with a similar hue.  At The Paper Players, we are all about the fun!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
This finished card measures 4-1/4″ wide by 5-1/2″ long.

  • Two steppin’! Stippled Blossoms is a Two-Step stamp.  I used Calypso Coral as my base, and overlayed it with Real Red stippling. Of course, I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the stippled image.

  • Black butterfly! Given my choice of colors, I probably wouldn’t ink up the small butterfly from Butterfly Basics in black.  However, it does look striking on the Calypso Coral pattern from the Birthday Bash Designer Series Paper collection.

  • A Beauty of a Bow!  Stampin’ Up!’s Seam Binding is one of my favorite ribbons for making bows. This time I selected Calypso Coral, and made a double loops.  The ends were shaped and held in position with Glue Dots.

IMG_1478-001I hope you enjoyed today’s card.  I needed a classic, feminine card for my friend, and I thought this set and layout filled the bill. What do you think? Won’t you let me know in your comment today?  Your comments are important to me, and I do read each and every one of them.  Of course, if you have any questions about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away.  Until next time…

Hot Diggity Dog Valentine for The Paper Players

IMG_1474It’s Thursday, and time to play with The Paper Players!  This week, the lovely Claire has a fun theme challenge for us: “Critter-Tine”…Create a Valentine to/from our furry friends.  What a perfect challenge for me, because I do make cards for my furkids.  I know…crazy, right?  Plus, they create cards to give to their people.  Of course, I have to help them, as they lack opposable thumbs.  I pulled out the Hot Diggity Dog stamp set in order to design this “Doggy-tine”.   It was quick, easy and fun!  Enjoy!

This finished card measures 4-1/4″ wide by 5-1/2″ long.

  • Great Scot! I LOVE anything Scottie dog! So I jumped at the chance to ink up this wee cutie! I stamped his head a second time, snipped it out and popped it atop Stampin’ Dimensionals.  IMG_1469-002
  • Whatcha thinkin’? It’s obvious our little fella has LOVE on his mind! This assortment of hearts was punched out with the Heart Border Punch and placed inside a thought bubble created with the Just Sayin’ stamp set and Word Bubbles Framelits.IMG_1467
  • Love the love!  I truly do love this scripted “love” sentiment from the Hello Life stamp set.  Of course, what better finishing accent for a “Scottie-tine” than a plaid border made with paper from the Adventure Bound paper stack.What do you think of today’s’ card?

IMG_1469-003 Although this is not a Valentine stamp set, I think it made a cute little Valentine card, which I will send to Brady the Boy from Brody, his dog.  What do you think?  Won’t you let me know in today’s comment? Your comments are very important to me.  Of course, if you ever have any questions about the cards I create, or the techniques I use, I am only an email away! Until next time…
