Color Fusers November 2017 Blog Hop

 Color Fusers Blog Hop, start it on my blog www.barbstamps.com.  Each month, we use a selection of Stampin' Up! colors and our fusers create amazing projects with them.  I use the Grown with Love Bundle on my project this month. #colorfusers #stampinup #duy #cardmaking #barbstamps
Welcome to our Color Fusers Blog Hop for November! I love the line-up of colors we are using this month, Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi, Blushing Bride and I chose Whisper White as my neutral and added some Gold Metallic Accents.
I chose the Grown with Love Bundle for my project because I thought these stamps would work great with this month's colors. I inked the pot in Tangerine Tango and cropped it with the coordinating framelit from the bundle. I inked it again in Chocolate Chip, trimmed out the skinny strip and glued it to the Tangerine pot.  I cut various widths of the Tangerine Tango, Blushing Bride and Wild Wasabi and added them to a scrap of Whisper White. I trimmed them to 3-3/4" x 5" and added this piece to a layer of Chocolate Chip that measures 3-7/8" x 5-1/8".

I use the Grown with Love Bundle on my project this month. #colorfusers #stampinup #duy #cardmaking #barbstampsThe greeting, flowers and stems were inked with Stampin' Write Markers and the image was cropped with a coordinating framelit. I also inked a couple of the flowers in Tangerine Tango and cropped them with the smaller framelits and added them over the Blushing Bride flowers with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

I added water and ink with a 2:1 ratio and dunked the twine. I let it hang to air dry and then tied it in a bow and added it to the pot with a Mini Glue Dot.

VIDEO - Card Box Full of Cards - Santas Little Elves Design Team

Logo1I was thrilled to be invited to the Santa's Little Elves Design Team! Our group of busy little elves have been working hard to bring you AMAZING projects every Friday for the next seven weeks. Come visit me every Friday for your FREE project sheet complete with a supply list, cutting directions and instructions. You can find the Printable Project Sheet near the bottom of this post.
I also plan to have videos for all the projects so mark your calendar to stop by and see me on Fridays. :-)
This week we have a gorgeous set of Cards with coordinating envelopes that can be gifted in a matching card box.  In the video, I create a Thank You greeting rather than a Merry Christmas greeting for the cards.  Scroll down to view my video for this project.  I switched up the greeting so the gift could be used after Christmas.
VIDEO and FREE printable project sheet on my blog showing you how to create this fabulous Christmas Gift.  It is a card box complete with four cards wrapped in a belly band.  The project is part of the Santa's Little Elves Countdown to Christmas. www.barbstamps.com #santaslittleelves #stampinup #diy #cardmaking #snowflakesentiments

Eclipse Technique - Woodland Folder, BOO!

Here is a fun card that uses the Eclipse Technique along with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Boo_eclipse
Thick Whisper White Cardstock – 4-1/4” x 11”
Basic Black Cardstock – 5-1/8” x 3-7/8”
Whisper White Cardstock – 5” x 2-7/8”
Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock – 5” x 3/4”
Vintage Crochet Trim – 6”
Instructions:
*Arrange the Large Alphabet letters B-O-O on the 5-1/8” x 3-7/8” Whisper White and run it through the Big Shot to die cut them out. NOTE: Do not toss any center pieces from any of the alphabet letters.
*Arrange the same Whisper White cardstock piece with all of the alphabet letters and their insert pieces inside the Woodland Textured Embossing folder and run through the Big Shot. NOTE: Die cutting the alphabet letters after texture embossing will cause the raised embossing to flatten as it goes through the Big Shot.
*Lay the Whisper White cardstock layer with the alphabet letters and their insert pieces onto a piece of Grid paper. Lightly sponge Smokey Slate ink over top of the raised Woodland embossed tree trunks and branches.
*Adhere the main portion of the Whisper White layer to the Basic Black cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Lay the B-O-O letters in place, but only add liquid glue to the alphabet inserts and set into place.
*Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the alphabet letters B-O-O and set into place. NOTE: pay special attention to the letter O’s and matching up the correct embossed tree trunks and branches.
*Ink the Trick or Treat sentiment from the Spooky Cat stamp set with Archival Basic Black, stamp in the center of the Lemon Lime Twist strip, add to the bottom portion of the Basic Black cardstock matte layer leaving a gap between this layer and the Woodland embossed layer.
*Adhere the Black Vintage Crochet Trim with a light line of Multipurpose Liquid glue to the gap area of the focal layer and wrap the ends to the back side of the Basic Black layer.
*Adhere the focal layer to the Thick Whisper White cardstock base. Add medium-sized Black Rhinestone Jewels to either side of the Trick or Treat sentiment; and add Mini Black Sequins to various spots on the Woodland embossed layer using a small dot of Multipurpose Liquid glue.

Merry_patternsMy card today uses the Merry Patterns Host set.  This set if free to anyone who places a $300 order or has a $300 party.  The party can be a live party, catalog party, facebook party, any type of party.
Video on the blog showing you the Ruffled Glitter technique.  The Merry Patterns stamp set is available with a $300 order or party thorugh Ocrtober 31st.  www.barbstamps.com #merrypatterns #barbstampsI chose Real Red and Old Olive because I really wanted to use the Quilted Christmas 1/4" Ribbon on this project.  The rest of the card evolved from that ribbon and I love how it turned out!!!  The deer was stamped in Old Olive and then the outline image was done with Memento Tuxedo Black.  The greeting is in Real Red and comes from the Seasonal Chums set.  The Ruffled Textured Impressions Embossing Folder helped me create my layers of snow and I show you how to do it in the video.

Holiday Catalog is LIVE!!

Catty_cover1Wahoo, the Holiday Catalog is live today!!!  I am so excited for you to start ordering from this amazing publication.  If you are a customer of mine and you have placed an order in the last six months, I had one sent to you.  If you have not yet received your catalog, EMAIL ME and I can get one out to you.

Here is a card I created for my Be a Big Shot at Home Gals last month.  It uses the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle and the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, both from the Holiday Catalog and the Night of Navy 1/2" Gingham Ribbon from the Annual Catalog.

Amazing card done with the Winter Wonder folder and the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle www.barbstamps.com
Place your orders in my store at www.shoppingwithbarb.com

I ran a 1/4 sheet of cardstock through the Big Shot and cut it in half. Attach one half to a layer of Whisper White about 3/8" from the left edge. Wrap the ribbon around the seam and tie in  a knot, adhere this layer to the Smoky Slate layer and then to the card base.  Stamp your greeting in Night of Navy ink on the Everyday Label Punch out and add to card where shown with dimensionals.  Add glue to one of the snowflake tips and add adhere it to the label.

Below are some videos by Stampin' Up! showing some of the amazing products in the Holiday Catalog.
