Ready for a simple birthday card? It’s quick and easy because the designer paper does all the work! It’s time to celebrate at Festive Friday Challenges!

For this week’s challenge,  we are inspired by National Simplicity Day.  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion.  Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. I selected CAS design, monochromatic palette, stitching, geometric shapes, and birthday theme from this week’s Inspo List.  I hope you will join us in our challenge this week. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

What better way to create a quick card than to let the designer paper do the talking! The lovely blue delft tile design is from the In Good Taste collection. With paper this pretty all that is needed is to add a sentiment!

The beautiful texture on the card base is courtesy of the Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder.  A double bow created from denim ribbon and a single rhinestone are the only accents needed.

Simple, Elegant Thank You Card

If a simple, elegant thank you card is your cup of tea,  today is your day! It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

clean elegant thank you card

This week, Joanne is hosting our monthly Clean and Simple challenge, and she has selected a theme of “Thank You”.  Remember, clean and simple cards are characterized by minimal layers and embellishments; they have plenty of open “white” space; and they are simple and uncluttered.  I went with a simple, elegant, and ever-so-easy card which I hope you enjoy!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
If you have limited time for stamping, then this is the card for you!  The definite “wow” factor comes from the luscious Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper. I used the white side of one of the leafy patterned panels, and matted it onto Very Vanilla cardstock. This was adhered to the Whisper White card base using dimensionals.

A few gold metallic pearls, gold leaves (from the specialty paper), and a white bow accent the sentiment.  Easy peasy and oh-so-elegant!  And remember,  you can always switch out the sentiment for whatever occasion you might need.  I hope you will join us in our challenge this week. I can’t wait to see what you create!

Birthday Card for A Dog Lover

Are you looking for a birthday card for a dog lover? How about this canine cutie?  It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

birtday card for a dog lover

Laurie is hosting our monthly color challenge, and selected Real Red, Tranquil Tide, and Basic Gray as her choices.  Because I do not have Tranquil Tide, I substituted Shaded Spruce.  I can’t wait to see what you create with this trio of colors!

 The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Because I didn’t want my card to look like I had used Christmas colors, I used green sparingly, and instead decided to focus on red. The adorable Schnauzer is from the Playful Pets designer series paper collection. I simply used the coordinating Pets die to cut it out.  How easy is that?

The special touches, such as the trinket and the ribbon are part of the Playful Pets Suite Collection. Needless to say, I bought the Suite.   I know the cards I make with this set will be a big hit with my dog loving friends!
