The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips – Silhouette Friendship Card

Silhouette Scenes is an adorable set. The sentiments are what sold me.  I love them all! I selected the one about good friends, since this card is earmarked for a very good friend of mine. Our birthdays are only a few days apart, and this year we celebrated them together with a “Girls’ Getaway” – an adventure, one might say.

friendship card

How about that sparkle on the heat embossed figures! I used the new Shimmer Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  And although it doesn’t show us as well, the sentiment was heat embossed with the new Shimmer White embossing powder.  In real life, the sparkle is multicolor.

friendship cardThe paper is  Pacific Point from the Brights 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper collection.  While the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper, which is part of the suite that includes this stamp set, is truly gorgeous paper, it just didn’t convey the sweetness I wanted to convey.

Mosaic Mood Summer CardThis week, the lovely Clair is challenging us to create a Clean and Simple Summer Beverage card. Now I will admit, creating a clean and simple card is a challenge for me on its own.  I reached into my box of recently retired stamps sets, which I am getting ready to sell,  to pull out the retired Coffee Café stamp set and coordinating dies to create this card.  Settle back with a cold summer beverage, and enjoy today’s post!

Mosaic Mood Summer CardThe Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Oh my gosh! I am in love with the Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper collection. Not only does it have patterns which are perfect for backgrounds (like the ones used for the card base and the cup), there are patterns perfect for clipping out images.  The gorgeous flower,  butterfly and bee were all fussy cut from the same piece of paper.

Mosaic Mood summer cardThe butterfly was used to accent the straws, while the bee looks adorable on the leaf.  I can’t wait to create more of these cards for summer birthdays, thank yous, and hellos. And wouldn’t this make a cute card for inviting your friends to a summer cookout?

Summer Vacation Card for PP444

Looking to create a summer vacation card? How about one with a nautical theme?  It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

summer vacation cardThis week, I am hosting a theme challenge:  Summer Vacation!  To be perfectly honest, as I began planning today’s card, I was heading in a completely different direction, something more along the lines of a beach theme with perhaps palm trees.  That was before I explored the fabulous cards in the new Come Sail Away Memories & More card pack.  Isn’t the cutout background paper awesome?  The “You, Me and the Sea” card really caught my attention.   The entire collection reminds me of coastal New England, which is definitely an area I would LOVE to visit on vacation.  Enjoy today’s card!

quick summer vacation cardColors of the Day

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

So many of the elements found on today’s card come from the Come Sail Away Memories & More card pack. The focal sentiment, which was cut using the largest Layering Oval die, is from one of the cards in the pack. The background “water” is actually one of the laser cut designs! And “The Perfect Day”? Why that is a sticker!

summer vacation cardOf course,  the Sailing Home stamp set and Smooth Sailing dies, available as a bundle, also play key roles in the creation of this card.  The sailboats were inked in Crumb Cake, Old Olive and Night of Navy, and cut out with the corresponding die.

summer vacation cardThe Old Olive seaweed, Silver Foil wheel, and Crumb Cake rope edge were all die cut using dies found in the collection. The nice thing about the foil wheel is that it doesn’t add bulk and is easy to mail.
