VIDEO - Eastern Palace Star Card

I have been playing with the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle over the past few weeks and I have had so much fun. This bundle includes so m any fun new products so I figured I would made a few projects and share them with you.  The Premier Bundle includes a ton of items and they all coordinate and create a ton of fun.

You can order either of the Eastern Palace Bundles on Monday, May 1st!!

English Premier Bundle1

Thumbnail_easternI worked with the Eastern Medallions Thinlits and came up with THIS VIDEO showing you how to use all of the dies.  There are certainly more things you can do with them but I do share a bunch of ideas with you in the video.

Now onto my card for today, it uses the products in the bundle along with the Dapper Denim ink pad.

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.
Flourishing Phrases Bundle is retiring, more samples on my blog at www.barbstamps.com
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. :-)
You can order these items in my store anytime! Head to www.shoppingwithbarb.com

Retiring - Succulent Garden Suite

With the release of the Retirement List yesterday, some things have sold out.  However, the Succulent Garden Suite is still available. :-)

Here is an quick and easy card that I made for my customers orders in March.  I used the Tip Top Taupe cardstock as my card base.  Add a 1-1/4 x 4-1/4 piece of the Designer Series Paper to the left edge.  Stamp the large outline flower in Mint Macaron on Mint Macaron and crop with the coordinating Framelit.  Add a 1/4 strip of Gold Foil Sheets to the edge of the DSP and then add the flower.  Stamp the greeting in Tip Top Taupe and finish it off with a few sequins pulled from a strand of our Gold Sequin Trim.
Succulent Garden simple card.  This suite is on the retiring list.  See the details on my blog at www.barbstamps.com
Here's a group shot

VIDEO - Tool Card for the Girls + Making Shiny Nuts!

I have been having the best time using the Naiiled It Bundle.  I have created videos for this card and two others  Check out my other two videos - Pocket Full of Tools and my interactive Pop-Out DAD Card.

I wanted to create a card for the girls using the Nailed It Bundle.  At first glance, it is certainly a manly set but girls use tools too!!!  This card uses Pink Pirouette along with Smoky Slate and Basic Gray.  I have been making a ton of cards lately using the Designer Series Paper Stacks.  The patterns are neutral so they work with many different types of cards.  Order your Designer Series Paper Stack today!!

Here is my tool card for the girls,  I added a snippet of Smoky Slate 1/8" Striped Ribbon and a bow to increase the girl factor. :-)

Card for the girls along with a video tutorial to show you how to create Shiny Nuts!!!  www.barbstamps.com Stampin' Up! Nailed It Bundle
I also created some Shiny Nuts to add to the card as a bit of bling, dimension and interest.  Check out the video to see how I made these Shiny Nuts.
