Flourishing Phrases Bundle

The Flourishing Phrases Bundle is on the retiring list but only because it won't be available as a bundle in the next catalog.  I love this large flourish and the detailed flower die cuts that come in this bundle. 
You can save 10% by purchasing this bundle in my store before June 1st. 

I found this card on page 49 of the catalog and copied it. 
It is a very simple card with the Soft Sky die cut popping off the Night of Navy background.

Flourishing Phrases Bundle is retiring, more samples on my blog at www.barbstamps.com

Here's another card I made with the large flourish as the focal point. Strips of cardstock were added to the white layer to create the background.

This card uses the amazing detailed flower dies on top of the stamped images.  The doily was cut in half and then trimmed even more before adding it to the back of the greeting banner.

Retiring - Something For Baby

I have a baby shower to go to and I made the momma to be a set of thank you cards.  She is sure to get a ton of awesome gifts so she will certainly need these.  Since I was making so many, they needed to be cute but quick and easy and I think these fit the bill.  So sad that this stamp set and coordinating framelits are retiring, they are both so great for baby and kid stuff.

Set of baby thank you cards for a friend.  More pictures on my blog www.barbstamps.com

I started with a 4-1/4 x 11 base of Marina Mist and ran the front of it through the Big Shot with the Large Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
The onesie was inked in Marina Mist, stamped on Whisper White and cropped with the coordinating framelit from the Baby Firsts Framelits.
I cropped the tag with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and added a strip of silver diagonal striped DSP fromthe Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack to the edge at a slight angle.
I cropped a Silver Glimmer Paper star with a die in the Popcorn Box Thinlits and added it to the front of the onesie.  The hanger was cropped from Smoky Slate with the hanger die in the Baby Firsts set.
Sset of baby thank you cards for a friend.  More pictures on my blog www.barbstamps.com
I added a panel of Whisper White to the inside as well and layered a 1/2" strip of the same DSP to the bottom edge and then stamped the booties in Marina Mist.
Sset of baby thank you cards for a friend.  More pictures on my blog www.barbstamps.com

I also used the Marina Mist and Smoky Slate Stampin' Write Markers to ink the diaper pin and stamp it on all the envelopes.

Retiring - Endless Birthday Wishes Nugget Treat

Here's an adorable inexpensive treat that you can use as an addition to a birthday card. I love making cute treats and this one is certainly CUTE!! The bright colors on these nuggets make me smile and  the birthday cake uses the same colors.

Retiring stamp set called Endless Birthday Wishes, super cute!!  Find this project on my blog at www.barbstamps.com.  Project uses Brights Designer Series Paper, Tags & Labels Framelits and 2 x 8 Cellophane Bags #barbstamps #diy
I used one of our 2" x 8" Cellophane Bags and added a tray that holds the nuggets.  The tray measures 2" x 4" and is scored at 1/4" down both long sides.  The sides fold up and then a piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive was added down the middle to keep the nuggets in place.
Each nugget is wrapped with a 1" x 3" strip of Designer Series Paper from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack which is retiring.  I used the diagonal stripe patterns in these colors Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise.
Retiring stamp set called Endless Birthday Wishes, super cute!!  Find this project on my blog at www.barbstamps.com.  Project uses Brights Designer Series Paper, Tags & Labels Framelits and 2 x 8 Cellophane Bags #barbstamps #diy
The cake image is from the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set that is on the retiring list (Click to VIEW).  I stamped it in Basic Black and used the Brights Stampin' Write Markers to color it with the same colors as the papers.  The tag is cropped with one of our Tags & Labels Framelits, also on the retiring list.
This is a super easy gift and who wouldn't smile when they receive it. :-)

VIDEO - Pocket Full of Tools - Nailed It Bundle

Working on some ideas for some swaps for this bundle and here is one I came up with.  This is also one of the projects that my Be a Big Shot at Home gals received supplies for in their February packets.  It uses the Nailed It Bundle from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog.  This is such a cool set, I love all the little tools and of course, who doesn't love coordinating dies!!!

My card is a Pocket Full of Tools and I have a video below showing you how I made it.  I used Silver Foil Sheets with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and it is so shiny!

One of the newly released items for Sale-a-bration is the Make a Medallion stamp set.  It is a set of two large medallions, a few sentiments and a few flourishes.

Here is a card I made with this stamp set.

Technique - Brayered Designer Series Paper

This is such a simple technique, I wish I would have thought of it sooner!  I used one of the patterns from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack and I colored it with my Sponge Brayer and my Pink Pirouette Ink Pad.

I used this technique on one of the bags that came in my Paper Pumpkin Kit, check it out HERE.

Sending_love_brayered_dsp_group

The difference can be seen in this photo, just adding some color to the paper makes it look completely different.  I also noticed that the red parts of the paper did not seem to change with the addition of the ink.
Sending_love_brayered_dsp_compare

I paired this paper with the Sending Love Bundle to create this fun Valentine's Day card. I added a layer die cut with the heart edgelit, added a focal point, some hearts and an arrow.

Measurements:
Sending Love DSP - 3-5/8 x 5-1/4
Basic Black 4-1/8 - 5-7/16
Whisper White Thick 4-1/4 x 11

Alternate Paper Pumpkin Projects - January 2017

Had some time this weekend to play with my January 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit called Adoring Arrows. While working with the cute white treat bags, I had a thought to color them, so I did!!!

Sponge_brayerYou can easily change the color of these bags by rolling a Sponge Brayer over your ink pad a number of times to pick up ink.  Roll back and forth over your project piece, roll over the pad to add more ink and repeat the process until you have the desired coverage.  Gently remove the ink from the gold hearts with a tissue.

PP_alt_sugarplum_colored_bag

I colored a couple of them and cut one up to make this birthday card.

PP_alt_sugarplum_present1
I added some die cuts from the Balloon Pop Up Thinlits, the bow and the straight ribbon pieces.
PP_alt_sugarplum_present_close
Measurements:
Colored bag layer - 2" x 2-3/4"
Gold Foil Sheet - 2-3/16" x 2-15/16"
Whisper White - 3-3/4" x 5"
Gold Foil Sheets - 4" x 5-1/4"
Sweet Sugarplum - 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"

The greeting was stamped in Sweet Sugarplum and then I stamped the tiny heart group a few times on the large Whisper Whie panel, covered them in Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set them.

Cool_treats_sundae

Here is my second card using the Cool Treats Suite.  You can check out my other card with a VIDEO on my blog HERE.
I made an ice cream sundae, complete with a cherry on top. :-)  My first card used multiple strips of the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper and you can find that card with Video HERE.

Cool_treats_sundae_group
I used the DSP and the Tasty Treats Designer Washi Tape along the edge of my main layer and added a tag cropped with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  The Pool Party Stitched Ribbon was tied in a bow and I show you how I do that in the video

Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies

Detailed_floral_half_card_front

I started with a Pool Party card base and I placed the larger die near the bottom of the card and drew a light pencil line across the top of the die.  I removed the large die and added the edgelit just above my pencil line and ran it through the Big Shot.  Cut down the fold line until you reach the die cut line.

Floral_phrases_half_open

I then used the larger die with the edgelit on a piece of Basic Black and added it to the front of the card.

Detailed_floral_half_card

Add a panel of Whisper White to the inside of the card, stamp a greeting and add a tiny flower from the Bloomin Heart Thinlits and stamp the flower from the Bloomin' Love stamp set.  Finish the whole thing off with some Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

In Color Club Thank You Cards

October is the final month for my In Color Club. Each year I do this, I send my participants a few cards created with the new In Colors. This is one of the cards they will receive in the October package.

Birthday_blosoms_sugarplum

I chose to use the Birthday Blossoms stamp set and stamped the flower grouping on the card base for a background.  The main flower was inked in Sweet Sugarplum, stamped on Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and cropped with my Pansy Punch. 

I stamped the leaves in Mint Macaron on Mint Macaron cardstock and fussy cut them with my Paper Snips.  The flower middle is a circle of Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper cropped with the large circle on the Owl Builder Punch. 

The tag is cropped with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and as an after thought, I added a few Frosted Sequins.  The Mint Macaron Linen Ribbon was stapled to the top of the tag.  Pretty simple card but I really like it and I hope they do too!
