It's Sunday and time to play with The Paper Players! Today will be even more exciting as we welcome three new Guest Designers to the line-up! You really must stop by The Paper Players site to see what Cindy, Lauri and Sandra have created for you! As for me, I played with several of the items that I pre-ordered from the Stampin' Up! 2011 - 2012 Idea Book and Catalog in creating this Thank You card for the Kind Thanks Theme Challenge. I hope you enjoy it!
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips:
- Watercolor delight! The NEW Cherish Friendship set is perfect for showcasing your water coloring skills. I used the Blender Pen and Ink method, along with a few Stampin' Write Markers for definition. Colors selected include: Basic Gray (chair), Crumb Cake (basket), Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder, More Mustard, Soft Suede, Rose Red (flowers), Sahara Sand (shadowing). For a special touch, a White Signo Gel Pen was used to add highlights.
- Flower power! A Scalloped Circle Punch Flower, made with First Edition Designer Series Paper, nestles neatly inside a Melon Mambo laser-cut Doily, snipped from the NEW Flirtatious Designer Series Paper. The Doily was then sponged with Crumb Cake ink and kissed with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. A Baja Breeze Scallop Trim Border Circle, made with the NEW Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die, provides the perfect background accent!
- Doily delight! Coordinate the look with a border punched with the NEW Lace Ribbon Border Punch and Flirtatious Specialty Designer Series Paper!
- Flag the sentiment! The "Thank You" sentiment from Curly Cute was inked in Early Espresso and stamped onto Naturals Ivory card stock. Two little snips to flag the end adds instant pizzazz! And isn't the background Designer Series Paper fabulous? It is from the NEW Pocketful of Posies Collection.
I had so much fun playing with the new products...and I have more new goodies just calling my name! What do you think of today's card? Won't you leave me a comment and let me know? Was there a new product previewed here that you liked? Of course, if you have any questions about the cards that I create or the techniques that I use, I am only an email away! Until next time...
