Quick and Easy Visions of Santa for The Paper Players

It’s Sunday…and time to play with The Paper Players! This week the talented Sandy has a fun sketch for us. 

Since Stampin’ Up! asked me to create a few cards with Visions of Santa and Santa & Co. Designer Series Paper, I decided to give it a go.  This is one of those sets that is polarizing.  I know many people either love it or hate it.  As for me, I felt the myriad of Santas were dancing a weird version of the “YMCA”.  Can’t you just hear The Village People singing, “It’s fun to stay at the…
“Y”
“M”
“C”

OK…so I couldn’t find anything that remotely resembled an “A”, but these jolly old elves were still staying at the “YMCA” in my mind.  At least they were weren’t doing the “Hokey Pokey”…or were they???

You put your right foot in,
You put your right foot out,

You put your left foot in,
You put your left foot out…

You do the hokey pokey
And you turn yourself around…
 That’s what it’s all about!
Thank goodness they weren’t doing the macarena.

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
This finished card measures 4-1/4″ wide by 5-1/2″ long.
Today’s card is so simple!
  • The card base is Real Red with a layer of Whisper White card stock on top.  
  • The sentiment was inked in Memento Tuxedo Black. 
  • Visions of my favorite Santas were punched out with a 1″ square punch and matted onto Basic Black.

I hope you enjoyed today’s fun card. My son, Brady, loved this set the moment he saw it, so this card is earmarked for him.  I know he will get a hoot out of it! I truly think it will appeal to the younger generation. What do you think? Won’t you let me know in today’s comment? Your comments are important to me.  As always, if you ever have a question about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away.  Until next time…

(Muffy and I are in Freeport, IL this weekend.  Wish us luck as we continue our quest to create memories!)

Freaky Friends for Pals Paper Arts

It’s Thursday…and we all know what that means! It’s time to play with the Pals at Pals Paper Arts.  This week we have a sketch designed by our resident sketch artist, Nicole Watt.  Before I left for Founder’s Circle, I was contacted by a representative of Stampin’ Up! who asked if I would be willing to create several cards using two stamp sets and Designer Series Paper which they would provide for me.  Upon my return home I found Freaky Friends and Motley Monsters DSP waiting for me, along with Visions of Santa and Santa & Co. paper.  Today’s sketch seemed tailor-made to showcase some of the cute images from Freaky Friends.  I hope you enjoy these cute little monsters!

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

  • Colorific! The adorable images were inked in Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay, Tangerine Tango and Memento Tuxedo Black.  Details were added using Stampin’ Write Markers and Project Life Journaling Pens.  What a motley crew!
  • Coordination! Don’t you LOVE the way Stampin’ Up!’s papers and colors coordinate? It takes the guesswork out of designing.
  • Be scary! Adorable bats accent the “Be Scary” sentiment from the Holiday Invitation set.  I used a Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Marker to add a little color.

What a bright and fun card! Some of the images remind me of the illustrations in the children’s book, Where the Wild Things Are. I have quite a few ideas for using this set, so stay tuned to see what I create. 

The Muffy Chronicles

While I was at Founder’s Circle in St George, Utah, Muffy was strutting her stuff in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.  She was Best of Opposite to her half-brother, Kit, both Saturday and Sunday.  It was a small show, so she only earned two points toward her Grand title. Her total stands at 15 points (she needs 25), with only a few shows left.  She is such a good traveling companion.  Here she is doing her impression of a lap dog, snoozing on her dad’s lap at one of the shows this summer:

In fact, they are both taking a nap. And here she is again, snoozing away on our recent outing in Manitowoc, WI.  Don’t you love her pink chin?

I hope you enjoyed today’s card.  Freaky Friends is an adorable set.  Although it is geared toward the young, I will be sending this one out to Brady, who is definitely young at heart.  I will let you know his reaction.

I have so much to share, including pictures from Founder’s Circle, and the impressions of a first-timer.  But they will have to wait until my next post.  In the meantime, won’t you leave me a comment and let me know what you think of today’s card? And don’t forget, if you ever have a question about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away! Until next time…
