It's Thursday and time to play with Pals Paper Arts! This week we are featuring a fabulous sketch by our own Pal, Margaret Moody. I decided to bring out the Spice Cake Designer Series Paper and the Always Grateful stamp set to make a card that expresses how I feel about all of you who frequent The Stampin' Schach. I am so grateful to have you as my friends!
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips
- Coordinate! You can never go wrong with Stampin' Up!'s Designer Series Paper. All of the patterns coordinate so well with each other!
- Say it with style! Jazz up your sentiment by flagging the end and adding pearls! Three pumpkins from the Always Grateful Wheelbarrow image draw the eye up to the sentiment.
- Depth and dimension! Extra pumpkins were adhered both inside and out of the wheelbarrow for added depth.
Speaking of Muffy Lin...when she was getting her bath this evening I noticed a huge scratch on the inside of her hind leg. Poor baby! She must have scratched it in the backyard when she was having playtime. I put a little ointment on it and told her she was such a good girl. However, it will take a miracle for it to heal by the time she shows on Saturday. But she is such a trooper, and it does not seem to bother her movement. As for the other Twin, Brody is now stitch-free! Woo hoo! His next show is in two weeks, so we will see if he will be penalized for his scar. He was so happy to be able to finally have a bath after his surgery, that the moment I took off his collar he headed straight to the tub and jumped in! The Twins do LOVE their baths!
As always, your comments are important to me. So please, won't you leave me a comment to let me know what you think of today's card? And if you ever have any questions about the cards that I create or the techniques that I use, I am only an email away. Until next time...
