Be Merry and Merry Patterns

Be_merryLook at this fun paper, it's the Be Merry Designer Series Paper Pack and it happens to be part of our Buy 3 Get 1 FREE select DSP promotion this month.

I paired the paper with the Merry Patterns stamp set that you can earn FREE with a $300 party or personal order through the end of the month. 

My card today is VERY simple and you could make lots of these for Christmas this year.  I started with a 4x4 piece of the DSP and adhered it to a piece of Whisper White that measures 4 x 5-1/4.

Quick and Easy card using the Be Merry DSP and the Merry Patterns stamp set www.barbstamps.com #stampinup #bemerry #merrypatternsI wrapped my ribbon around the seam and tied it in a knot.  The outline image of the greeting was stamped in Memento Black and the bold image was stamped in Cherry Cobbler.  This stamp set is so fun to use, check out my RUFFLED SNOW DEER CARD.  Here's a close up of the two stamps used together. Quick and Easy card using the Be Merry DSP and the Merry Patterns stamp set www.barbstamps.com #stampinup #bemerry #merrypatternsYou could use the card layout with any of our Designer Series Papers.

Here is a card I made using the Sneak Peek Carols of Christmas Bundle.  I used the border element from the die set around the edges of this card.  Can I just say, these dies are AMAZING!!!

You can purchase this Sneak Peek Bundle in my store at www.shoppingwithbarb.com.

I started this card with a piece of Glossy White Cardstock and stamped the two snowflake images from the Colorful Seasons stamp set randomly over it with my Versamark Pad.  I covered the snowflakes with White Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set them.

Glossy White Cardstock is the bomb!  There are so many cool techniques you can do with it.  Here is one and you can find the details on my blog www.barbstamps.com #carolsofchristmas #stampinup

Bell Punch Treat Pouch!

Occasons_2017_shareNow taking reservations for my 2017 Occasions Catalog Product Shares.  If you reserve and pay for your I Want it All Share by December 31st, I will include the Early Bird Bonus Sale-a-bration Papers.  More information....
___________________________________________________________

Here is a last minute treat that you can whip up in minutes.  I used the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper and the Bell Punch along with our 3 x 6 Gusseted Cello Bags.

Bell_bags

I cut two pieces of the Designer Series Paper to 2-7/8 x 6-1/2 and scored each piece at 2" from the bottom.

Fold up on the score line and insert the punch as far as it will go and punch.  This will also punch on the 2" section but you can hide it.  Glue the two 2" sections together making sure to put the flap with the partial bell punch out to the inside.  Cut a 2 x 2-7/8 piece of coordinating cardstock and glue it where the two section overlap covering the partial punch out.

Take a scrap of coordinating cardstock and crop the bell punch from it.  Crop this with the 2" Circle Punch and put it over the bell punched from the DSP.  Cut a 2 x 2 piece of Window Sheet and place it over the hole on the opposite side of the DSP to create a window.

Tie a bow from coordinating ribbon, in my case, I used the 3/8" Silky Taffeta Ribbon in Emerald Envy, and attach it to the top of the bell.

Open the bag and push the bottom of the DSP strip into the bag creating the pouch.  Fill with treats and staple closed.  Create a topper from a 1 x 2-7/8 strip of coordinating cardstock that is folded in half to go over the top of the pouch.  I used some clothespins that I covered with DSP to attach the topper to the pouch.  I finished it off by adding some of the Baker's Twine in Cherry Cobbler and Gold.

Santa's Sleigh - Gift for my Mom

My mom is getting up there in age and she doesn't do much decorating for the holidays any;more.  It is just too difficult for her to drag out allthe holiday decorations and then put them away.  I wanted her to have something to look at so I made her this framed piece of art.

Santas_sleigh_frame

I copied it from page 24 of the Holiday Catalog.  I purchased my frame at Walmart and just followed the picture.  I stamped the greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black on Whisper White and layered "hills" I hand trimmed using Shimmery White as it is a bit less white.  I added glitter to the hills with my Fine Tip Glue Pen and our Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

Santas_sleigh_frame_trees

I cut the trees out of Garden Green and Wild Wasabi and added some Mica Flakes to them. 

The reindeer are cut from Kraft Cardstock and I cut them again from Basic Black so I could trim off their hooves and add them to the Kraft reindeer. I aded bows of gold baker's twine and a mini jingle bell.

Santas_sleigh_frame_reindeer

The sleigh is cut from Gold Foil Sheets and the bow from the Silver Foil Sheets.

Santas_sleigh_frame_sleigh

I gave it to her last month when we drove home for Thanksgiving and she loved it.  Made me happy. :-)

Holiday Treats for Teachers

Here are some of the holiday treats I am making for my kids teachers.  They are getting older and have more than one teacher so I no longer make one big gift.

These went together quickly.  I used the Ghirardelli Minis Peppermint Bark candies.  I cut a 1-3/4 x 4-1/4 strip of Real Red cardstock and added the candies to the strip with Tear & Tape Adhesive.  I slid it into one of our 2 x 8 cello bags.  I wrapped the 2 x 4 belly band around the treat and added a fussy cut gingerbread house or a reindeer from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set.

Here are a couple of adorable gift tags that I created using the Cozy Critters Host set.  This set can be "purchased" with Host Rewards but hurry as it is on the Holiday Catalog Retiring List so it is only available through January 3rd.   You earn Host Rewards when you place an order or have a party with a merchandise total of $150 or more.

Cozy_critters_tags
I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch on a 2" strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I trimmed it to length after I had done my stamping.  Then I added a 2-3/16" wide strip of Soft Suede (I cut it to length after I cut the tag) and then I added a 2-3/8" strip of the diagonal stripe Real Red Designer Series Paper.  This paper is from the Brights Stack.  The Designer Series Paper Stacks are a wonderful addition to your stash as polka dots and stripes are always in style. :-)

I stamped the owl and fox images on Crumb Cake cardstock, once in Real Red, cleaned the stamp and stamped it again in Soft Suede.  I fussy cut the red scarfs and glued them to the cirtters. 

The critters were cropped with the coordinating Fox Builder Punch and Owl Builder Punch .  The hat is cropped from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and Real Red Cardstock using the Jolly Hat Builder Punch (which is 40% off right now!!)

I have a few cards I created with the Jar of Cheer stamp set that coordinates with the Everyday Jars Framelits.  Both the Jar of Cheer and Jar of Haunts are on the Holiday Catalog Retiring List so they won't be available after January 3rd.  Both of these sets are must haves if you are loving the Everyday Jars Framelits.

This card uses Marina Mist card stock and the diagonal stripe pattern from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack.  I love these color collection Designer Series Paper Stacks.  Any card can use polka dots or diagonal stripes, very versatile paper.

I used the tree stamp with Marina Mist ink to create a background behind the jar.   I stamped the greeting from Wondrous Wreath in Versamark and then heat embossed it with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder.  I inked the snowman and jar images in Basic Black so I could water color them and then I cropped it with the jar framelit.  The lid is stamped in Versamark and heat set with the Silver Embossing Powder and I added some Silver Metallic Thread behind the jar.  The DSP is cut on the diagonal and I layered a piece of the Silver Glitter Ribbon behind it.  The main layer is attached to a card base of Thick Whisper White. If you haven't tried the Thick Whisper White Cardstock, you are truly missing out.  I use it exclusively for card bases!

The Embellished Ornaments Bundle (order it in either Clear Mount or Wood Mount) is one of the items offered on the first day of the sale. 

This bundle includes the Embellished Ornaments stamp set and the Delicate Ornaments Thinlits Dies. 

Another cool card using the Embellished Ornaments Bundle that will be part of the Door Buster Sale tomorrow, Monday, November, 21st.

This card uses heat embossing, masking and sponge daubers for coloring.  Scroll down for the details on how this card was made.

Embellished_ornaments_blue

First, I stamped the long skinny ornament from the Embellished Ornaments stamp set in Versamark Ink, covered it with White Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set it. I then stamped the image on copy paper and cut it out to create a mask. 

I placed the mask over my embossed ornament and stamped the wide ornament in Soft Sky ink over part of it so it appears that the wide ornament is behind the skinny ornament.

I then took two quarter sheets of Whisper White and die cut the solid long skinny ornament out of one and the solid wide ornament out of the other.  I placed the negative space of the long skinny ornament die cut over the embossed image and used my Sponge Daubers with Solft Sky and Island Indigo inks to rub color over the embossed ornament to add the color. I rubbed a paper towel over this to remove any ink on the embossed part.

I then placed the negative space of the wide ornament die cut over the wide stamped ornament and added a bit of shading with Island Indigo ink to the left edge.

I added some Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details to the holly berries for a bit of shine.

The greeting was double stamped, meaning that I stamped it in Soft Sky, then used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to over stamp it slightly offset in Island Indigo.
