The Stampin' Schach Design Tips
This finished card is 4-1/4" tall by 5-1/2" long.
- Giving credit where credit is due! I realized after the card was completed and uploaded on the Design Team page that this peacock is almost exactly like the one in the Stampin' Up! catalog. I had looked at the catalog for color inspiration, and must have subconsciously filed this sequence away in my memory. So thank you, Stampin' Up! artists, for designing this beautiful peacock!
- Framelit Fun! Don't you love how this sentiment fits into one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits! And it is so easy to custom ink any sentiment with Stampin' Write Markers. In this case Chocolate Chip and Lucky Limeade do the trick! Coordinating the colors of the sentiment with the International Bazaar Designer Series Paper banner and with the card base, pulls the card together.
- Repeat the Motif! Diamonds are a girl's best friend, especially when found on the new Argyle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. We see the diamond motif repeated on the peacock, in the Designer Series Paper, and even in the tail of the banner...adding a cohesive and unifying element!
Brody's second bump was removed Monday. I am happy to report that it was a cyst. He was extremely groggy afterwards, but Dr. Rita felt he would be better with his family. So he spent the evening soundly sleeping within the safety of his crate.
Who could resist this precious face? But don't let looks fool you...she can be quite sassy! Tuesday was her birthday, and she turned 8 weeks old!
I hope you enjoyed today's card. Won't you let me know in today's comment? And if you ever have a question about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away. Until next time...
