This week we are celebrating National Nurse’s Day.  However, 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 red, get well sentiment, blue and green from the Inspo List in creating today’s card.  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

Don’t you just love a cute card that’s easy to make? That’s today’s card for sure! It’s colors will brighten anyone’s day. The nice thing is that this card can double as a thank you card, a birthday card, or a “hello” card simply by switching out the sentiment. It’s also one which can be made assembly line style.  Simply stamp several blooms in the colors desired, and punch away.  Originally all of my flowers were stamped in Real Red, but I decided a “pop” of Daffodil Delight was, well…delightful!

To break up the starkness of the Whisper White panel, the speckles image from the Painted Poppies stamp set was inked in Smoky Slate.  It was then stamped off and randomly stamped in the background.  Daffodil Delight ribbon and clear rhinestones are the perfect accents.

Hello Card in Spring Colors

Need a Hello card in spring colors to brighten up someone’s day? Hello – look no more! It’s Sunday and time to play with The Paper Players!

Hello card in spring colors

This week, for our monthly color challenge, Jaydee has a trio of wonderful colors for us:  Seaside Spray, So Saffron, Gray Granite (or neutral of choice).

hello card in spring colors

I used Stampin’ Up!’s  Forever Blossoms stamp set to create this Hello card in these spring colors. Won’t you play along with us this week?  I can’t wait to see what you create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Today’s card is all about texture and dimension! The So Saffron panel was embossed using the Subtle embossing folder, while the Seaside Spray panel was embossed with the Coastal Weave folder. Even more texture was provided by the Seaside Spray metallic ribbon.

To add interest behind the flowers, Gray Granite cardstock was die cut using the ornate Flourish die.  Clear rhinestones add a wee bit of sparkle to the centers of the flowers.

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

With ten puppies in the house, it’s hard to find the time and inspiration to stamp.  However, I had so much fun creating this spring card. It uses paper from the Ornate Garden  Suite, an early release from the upcoming Annual Catalog.  (Details about this suite can be found later in today’s post.) I used Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends to  color the flowers, giving them Daffodil Delight centers. The leaves are Mint Macaron, and the background is Pool Party.  All of that yummy texture was created using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.

any occasion card

The pen from the Crafting Forever stamp set was heat embossed in gold, and colored with Stampin’ Blends, as were the butterflies from Butterfly Gala.  Champagne Rhinestones and a Mint Macaron bow are the perfect accents. Of course, I have included all of the details on how to make this card in the free PDF tutorial.

Farewell, Babies!

Part of my lack of creativity these past few days is due to the fact my babies are leaving. The Party of Ten puppies are heading to their forever homes.  Heaven knows these ten were a ton of work,  but they rewarded me with love, snuggles and puppy kisses.  In this trying time, they were a bright spot in my day.  They will be my last litter for a  variety of reasons.  One is my age.  I am too old for all that raising a litter entails.  Plus there is the emotional investment.  I am already crying, as six puppies head out the door this weekend.  My emotions are raw due to lack of sleep and health worries about the “Twins”.   Brody sleeps more deeply these days, and there are times when I can hardly awaken him.  But he is still eating and drinking, and is in no pain.  I know, in my heart of hearts, that I will be facing difficult decisions for both of my Twins, having just recently discovered a lump under Muffy’s chin.  As per my vet’s advice, we have put off removing it due to the pandemic. I am monitoring it, and if it grows or changes, we will schedule surgery.  The circle of life continues as new lives enter and old friends prepare to leave.

Goodby, babies.  Run free. Play hard. And know that you will always have a piece of my heart…

As always, if you have any questions about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away! Until next time…
