Perfect Pennants Birthday!

Pennants_card

Simple card today.  This card was included in one of my Be a Big Shot at Home classes last round. 

I used the Banners Framelits, some plain card stock, In Color Designer Series Paper and a stamped image.  The splatter image from Gorgeous Grunge was stamped im Crumb Cake along the right side.  The corner rounder on the Envelope Punch Board was used to round the bottom corners.

Order any of these items in my Online Store at www.shoppingwithbarb.com

Hello! Timeless Talk Flip Card

SeasonofstyledspstackHow fun is this card!  I paired the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack with the Timeless Talk stamp set to come up with this retro filp card.  This stack of papers has 48 sheets, 24 of each double sided design and they are certainly not just for Christmas.

 

 

Timelesstalkthinlit

Of course. the Circle Card Thinlits Die set does all the cutting and folding for me.

I used our new Rotary Attachment and Small Scallop Blade for the Stampin' Trimmer to create this fun border on the Bermuda Bay strip.

Timelesstalkthinlit1closeI stamped the phone image in Bermuda Bay,  punched it out with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch, stamped the image again in Crumb Cake ink, punched out the dial with the 3/4" Circle Punch and popped it up on the main phone image with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I lined my Medium Crumb Cake Envelope with one of the patterns in the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack.  I creatd the liners with our new Envelope Liners Framelits Die set from the Holiday Catalog.

This was one of the cards that my club members made in September.

Fun with Washi Tape!

Clothsepins2
I found something similar to these on Pinterest and thought they would make a fun little thank you for my Be a Big Shot at Home gals.  I included one with their final packet of supplies for this round.

I put a strip of Washi Tape (see our Washi Tape Collections HERE) on one side of each Clothespin and magnet strips on the other.  I then punched butterflies with both of our butterfly punches and added coordinating sets to the clothespins.  The final touch was a Candy Dot in the center of each butterfly.

Fun with the Gingham Wheel!

Fivewayflowerplum
When I saw a similar card in Pinterest, I knew it would be one of the cards for my clubs in June.  Thanks to Cindee Wilkinson for the idea.

Perfect Plum is a color I love but don't use often and I love it on this card.  We rolled the Gingham Wheel across my ink pad and then used the edge of a clear stamp case to line it up perfectly along the card.

The Five Way Flower Single Stamp added the perfect focal point.  We also added some fun paper piercing and a couple of Regals Candy Dots.

Wildflowermeadow4x4

FREE DSP - Eastern Elegance!

Have you heard?  If you buy three packages of Designer Series Paper, you will get one FREE!!  Who doesn't love FREE stuff right. :-)

I chose the Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper Pack for this card.  The design would look great with any of the other papers we carry.

Happydayeasteleg
I used four of the twelve patterns on my card and the colors are Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Smokey Slate and Basic Gray. 

Order any three packages of Designer Series Paper on the list and choose one FREE!

Did you notice the banner "window" in the middle?  I created it by using the Banner Framelit included in the Hearts a Flutter Framelit Set.  After I cut the window and added the side banners, I attached it to my main card base with a bunch of Stampin' Dimensionals.

Happydayeastelegclosejpg
The "valance" was created by a 1/2" strip of one of the paper patterns and the Coastal Cabana Ruffle Trim Ribbon under it.  The Crushed Curry Baker's Twine comes in the Tag a Bag Bundle.

Brides & Babies with the Alphabet Press

Another card from my Monthly Card Buffet Class. This card uses one of our 25th Anniversary stamp sets, called Best of Brides and Babies (order it #133482), check out all the other "Best of" Stamp sets HERE.

Bridesbabiesbuffet

I embossed the background with one of the NEW Textured Impressions Embossing Folders called Alphabet Press shown on page 191 of the 2013 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.

Bridesbabiesbuffet1I stamped the "let the cute begin" image in Chocolate Chip on my strip of Whisper White and snipped the end with the Hexagon Punch to create the banner. 

Hexagonbanner

I also stamped the image on a scrap piece of Designer Series Paper that I had out, hand cut the onesie and glued it to the main image for my card.  The letters appeared a bit blah to me so I jazzed them up a bit with my Primrose Petals Stampin Write Marker.  I used the writing tip and added polka dots to the letters.

VIDEO - Hershey's Nugget Pouch on page 121

When I saw the little Hershey's Nugget Pouch on page 121 of the NEW 2013 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, I knew I had to learn to make it. 

It turned out so cute, I also included it as one of the four projects in my June Be a Big Shot at Home Class Packets!!

I checked the Stampin' Supplies List and found that the designer used the Floral Frames Framelits Collection so I sat down to figure it out.

Outline & Sketch Alphabets meet Soho Subway DSP

OutlinealphabetGreat card using the ABC-123 Outline Alphabet & Numbers and ABC-123 Sketch Alphabet & Numbers sets. The letters were stamped over each so each letter has a dark outline and a colorful center.  Very cool sets to use together.  The letter "U" is layered on a few circle punches and finally on our NEW Artisan Label Punch and it is accented with one of the fun Cancy Dots and Brad Bases.

The background papers come from the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper package which is great for your masculine cards. Here is a shot of all the papers in that pack.

Banner Greetings Control Freaks Swap Card

This is the card I made for the Control Freaks New Catalog Swap last month. I chose to use the NEW Hostess set called Banner Greetings (see it online HERE) and added some toothpicks to create some bright and fun banners.

Bannergreetingscfswap

GinghamwashiI also used one of our NEW Designer Washi Tape Collections called Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape (order it #129314) I wrapped each pattern around my main image piece for some bright detail.

Washi Tape feels a bit like masking tape.  It is translucent and a bit thinner.  You can reposition it and tear it with your fingers.  It is so  much fun to use. :-)

I also added one of our New Brights Designer Buttons (order them #130028).  The buttons have been redesigned and I have to say, I love them!!

If you check out the stamp set, there are no solid banners, each banner has a greeting on it.  I wanted one of them to be plain.  You can create the look of a plain banner by using the "baby cakes" greeting and covering it with a 7/8" Scallop Circle punchout.  It fits over the words perfectly.  I also added a Daffodil heart to the center for a pop of color.
