Pals Guest Stamper Ann Schach

Apothecary Christmas
What an honor today to be sharing one of Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Ann Schach's holiday masterpieces!  I'm so fortunate to be able to call Ann one of my Stampin' Pretty Pals!  She has made a name for herself in creating stunning vintage cards and shares her talent and ideas regularly on her Stampin' Schach blog.

Isn't the coloring stunning?  Want to know more details about how she created the criss cross design or the full details on this card?  Be sure to visit Ann's blog

CHECK OUT ANN'S VIDEO!  Ann has a wonderful (and fun) video to share with you today on "Achieving the Distressed Look."  It shows how she used the sponge dauber, distressing tool, stamping sponge, color spritzer, and French Foliage waterspot stamp.

    Merry Christmas Mary, I make a lot of your card designs for friends and family! They absolutely love them! It was talking to you a few weeks ago when I called to make an order with you! I want to say yet again that you are one of the most talented people I’ve ever seen. Thank you for having all the tutorials, how to use products and new card designs! Love all the Stampin’ Up products! Thanks again and Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

  3. Mary, you always inspire me…when I have those not so easy days, I look at your posts and cards and I am renewed! So, I think I have been trying so hard to be nice, nice, nice, with all the help! Thank you!!

    Nice or naughty? Not so nice as my stamping has slowed way down. However doing more volunteering and finding it is so rewarding. Plan to do more this new year-and more stamping too. Enjoy your site. One of my favs. Thanks for keeping it going.

    Mary – I have been nice, nice, nice. Using lots of my Stampin Up products and TONS of inspiration from you, I sent out 46 handmade Christmas cards this year and have been getting lots of comments from those that received them that they felt special in receiving my beautiful cards. With my hobby of cardmaking, I keep myself busy and make a whole lot of people happy! Thanks for all you do.
