Visions of Moose for Pals Paper Arts

Happy Thanksgiving! It’s Thursday, and time to play with the Pals at Pals Paper Arts! This week the talented Nicole Watt has created a fun sketch for you. I hope you enjoy my easy-to-make Moose card, featuring the Santa and Co. Designer Series Paper.

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

  • It’s all about the punch! Various Moose from the Santa and Co. Designer Series Paper collection were punched using the 2-1/2″ , 2″, 1-3/4″ and 1″ Circle Punches. How easy is that!
  • It’s all about the details!  Who can resist a bull moose with pearls on his back-flap long johns and bows on his antlers? I know I can’t!
  • It’s all about the sentiment! These moose certainly know ’tis the season to be fancy! I matted the sentiment banner atop Real Red cardstock for a “pop” of color, and finished it off with a Linen Thread bow.

At this time, I would love to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving. It truly is a time to be thankful for one’s blessings. I am blessed with a loving, supportive family and wonderful stamping friends like you! Family and friends…for what more could I ask?

I had fun with today’s card.  At first, I was a little stumped with what to do with all the circles.  Then I spied the moose paper on my kitchen table and thought, “Why not?”  I was pleased with the cute result.  What do you think? Won’t you let me know in your comment today?  Your comments are important to me.  And remember, 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…

The Stampin’ Schach Lesson of the Month…It’s Like Stampin’ with Me in My Kitchen

This month features three cards created with the Kinda Eclectic stamp set.  A holiday card in non-traditional colors; a simple and sweet beauty; and a collage card featured a few weeks ago comprise this month’s trio.  Here they are:

Card #1:  Holiday Wreath

Lesson Focus:

  • Using non-traditional colors for holiday cards.

Card #2: Simple and Sweet 

Lesson Focus:

  • Using the emboss resist technique

Card #3: Collage with “Wow”

Lesson Focus:

  • Creating collage-style cards
  • Attention to detail.

This month’s lesson will include the following:

  • The Kinda Eclectic clear stamp set (C 135350, $19.95).  Already own this set? You may substitute one of equal value.
  • One package of pearls, valued at $4.95.
  • Three completed cards.
  • Emailed pdf project sheets which contain step-by-step instructions and photos on how to complete each card, including measurements.
  • Item numbers for each product used.
  • A private link to video lessons for each one of the projects, discussing how it was created and demonstrating how to do the techniques used.
  • Email assistance to answer any questions you may have about the cards.

This is NOT a card kit. Because I create all of the cards myself, class sizes are strictly limited to the first 30 enrollees.

  • You will have until 12:00 Noon (CST) on the 29th of this month to email me that you will be participating and to pay the PayPal invoice, which will be emailed to you.

They will be sent to you within 1 business day after I receive them. The tutorials and video links will be emailed to you by December 3rd.
  • Please allow up to three weeks for me to complete your cards. I create each card personally, and depending upon the number of subscribers, it does take time to complete the cards.
  • There is no commitment. You can subscribe one month, and opt out the next.  However, you will receive a surprise valued between $3.95 – $5.95 for every three months you enroll (on your 3rd, 6th, 9th, 12th month…).

The price for all o this is only $34.95 each month! Ready to enroll? Email me at the address above.
