Flowers For Friends

Looking for a card which will be a day brightener? Nothing beats flowers for friends! It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

Flowers for Friends

This week, LeAnne is hosting our color challenge. Don’t you love the colors she has selected for us?  I was so excited to play with these colors, and I hope you will be, too! I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

When designing today’s card, I followed a modified version of the 60-30-10 rule, which is an easy guideline to help achieve color balance.  The numbers 60, 30 and 10 refer to the percentages of your design that each color will make up.  The dominant shade, which is usually neutral or subdued, takes up 60% of the card. The secondary color, which takes up 30% of the card, is typically brighter or bolder.   Finally, the accent color makes up the remaining 10%. My dominant color was Crumb Cake, along with the second neutral, Basic White. Misty Moonlight was the secondary color, while Merry Merlot was my accent color.

flower card for a friend

A die cut butterfly, adorned with pearls, is perched atop the blossoms, which were colored with Stampin’ Blends and fussy cut from True Love Designer Series Paper. Although it doesn’t show in the picture, Clear Wink of Stella adds subtle shimmer to the centers of the flowers and the leaf.

Coming Home Christmas Card

If this is your very first visit to one of our hops, the Stamp Review Crew is a group of international Stampin’ Up! demonstrators whose mission is to do a blog hop on the first, third and fifth Mondays of each month. Our hops are unique because each of us features the same stamp set used in a variety of ways, giving you loads of inspiration for that set. The hops are archived at the Stamp Review Crew blog. You will be able to click through each hop at any time, going directly to the posts for that hop, whenever you want.

This week we are featuring the Many Messages stamp set and Messages dies from the January – June 2021 Mini Catalog. If you are following along in order, you have just arrived from Kelly Kent.  Kelly’s work is always fabulous! After visiting me, you will continue to the next stop, the amazing Lou Kitzelman.  I absolutely love her work. Be prepared to be inspired as you travel along on today’s hop!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Today’s Many Messages cards were designed with the busy stamper in mind.  Each one of these cards uses the same layout, and the coordinating colors and papers make it very easy AND efficient to create several cards for your card stash.  While these are not what I call “hit it out of the park home run cards”, let’s be honest. Those types of cards take a huge investment of time and resources. I can spend hours on “home run” cards.  Today’s cards, however,  go together quickly once you have the paper dimensions which are included in the tutorial linked below.

Many Messages

A simple double bow and a few pearls are perfect accents for an anniversary card. Of course, after stamping and die cutting all of the amazing sentiments included with this set, you can easily switch out the message for many other occasions.  Move the bow to the left, and use any of the longer sentiments.
Many Messages
This hello card features one of the stickers from the Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack.  I added Champagne Rhinestones for a touch of bling.
