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!!

  www.shoppingwithbarb.com

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.

VIDEO - 40 Cards using the Balloon Adventures Bundle

I have a video for you today where I show you 40 cards that use the Balloon Adventures Bundle.  I do a little talking about each one so it isn't a short video. :-) 

All the cards use the Balloon Adventures Bundle and you can click on the items to purchase them in my store.

There is a nice selection of items and I think that most of the stamp set images and the dies are used on at least one card. This was a fun video to shoot as I got to really look at each card and I learned some really cool things.

Balloon Pop Up Wiper Card, how much fun does this sound?  It is tons of fun and super easy too.  Check out my video to see how much fun this interactive card is.  It is also simple to create a Wiper Card so that makes it even more fun!  AND when you add pop up balloons in Glimmer Paper, it's even better!!  Here's the first Wiper Card I made.  I made it for a swap and the gals loved it.
This first picture is of it closed.  It's cute but nothing special.....scroll down to the next photo.

Here it is with the balloons coming out of the top.  The card acts like windshield wipers.  up, down, up, down, up, down, they are so so cool!!!

Here's a closeup of the balloons, I used the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies and cropped balloons from Watermelon Wonder (Heads up, this is one of the colors that will be retiring at the end of May with the current catalog.), Pool Party and coordinating bows, one out of Peekaboo Peach.
Wiper_balloons

The polka dot papers are from the 2015-2017 and 2016-2018 In Color Paper Stacks and check out the little strip of Pool Party in the center section.  I stamped it a few times with the Happy Birthday stamp in the Balloon Adventures stamp set.

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!

Melon Mambo Z-fold Valentine Card

Wanted to make a cool Valentine for my husband and I really wanted to use Melon Mambo, not because it's his favorite color but because, I hadn't used it in a while and I love it!!!!

I decide to make him a Z-Fold Card because I'm pretty sure he will think it's really cool. :-)
Below is the card closed, I used a lot of fun products on this card, starting with the Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tape.  I added it in three places -
*To separate the punched hearts border from the focal point (I added the Washi Tape to a strip of Whisper White before I added it to the layer)
*On the right edge of the inside layer
*A different pattern on the right edge of the top layer
I also used the edgelit, the small envelope, the tiny envelope liner, the small note card in the envelope and the heart pattern that fits on the top of the note card.  all of these pieces can be found in the Love Notes Framelits Dies.

Sending_love_zfold

Here's a closeup of the heart border and the envelope.  The Confetti Hearts Border Punch was used on the left side of the top layer and I also used the punch on a scrap of Basic Black so I could inlay a few of the black hearts to really make the border pop.  I chose one of the patterns in the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper for the small envelope and die cut a tiny envelope liner from Whisper White to hide the reverse side of this paper as it didn't really fit my theme.
Sending_love_zfold_close
And here is the inside layer, I stamped images from the Sealed with Love stamp set in both Melon Mambo and Memento Tuxedo Black.
Sending_love_zfold_open
A Z-Fold Card is super easy, start with a 4-1/4 x 11 piece of card stock and score it at 2-3/4 and 5-1/2.  Fold the card in half and then fold it back on itself.  Add a layer that measures 3-1/2 x 5 and you are done. Decorate and embellish as desired.

VIDEO - Lattice Fold and FREE Printable Template

WINNER, WINNER!!  The winner of my Superbowl Giveaway is Chandra J, congrats Chandra, I will get the Gift Box Punch Board to you!!  Thank you to everyone who ordered during my special. :-)

Now onto today's project, I am so excited to share this fun fold with you.  I call it the Lattice Fold but I have seen it called the Basket Weave Fold and the Braided fold.  Whatever you call it, it is amazing and sooooo easy and if you scroll down, I have a FREE Printable Template!!!

I created my card in the landscape orientation but you could always turn it and create it in the portrait orientation. 

I used the Cupcakes and Carousels Suite to create this card.  Such fun colors and patterns in the Designer Series Paper Stack.

VIDEO - 40+ Cards using the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle

I have a video for you today where I show you 40+ cards that use the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle.  I do a little talking about each one so it isn't a short video. :-) 

All the cards use the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle and you can click on the items to purchase them in my store.

There is a nice selection of items and I think that all dies and stamp images are used on at least one card.  This was a fun video to shoot as I got to really look at each card and I learned some really cool things.
