More with the retiring Diagonal Stripe Background Stamp

This is one of the cards I created during my Facebook Live Show last week, it uses the retiring Diagonal Stripe Background stamp along with the retiring Garden in Bloom set and the sentiment is from the Love What You Do set that is part of the Share What You Love Bundle promotion this month. Diagonal stripe background stamp along with the Garden in Bloom and Love What You Do stamp sets.  Fun way to use the circle punch creating an area for the sentiment. www.barbstamps.com  #stampinup #barbstampsFour of the New In Colors were used on this card, Blueberry Bushel, Lovely Lipstick, Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch.

Fun way to use the circle punch creating an area for the sentiment. www.barbstamps.com  #stampinup #barbstampsI used the 2 1/4" circle punch to crop the corner.  I messed up my sentiment on the one in the back so I decided to alter the placement of the circle cut out and I am really happy with it.  You can certainly do it both ways. :-)

Scroll down for a video on how to make the box.  I chose Bermuda Bay, Pool
Party, Lemon Lime Twist and Flirty Flamingo as my colors and thought the Apron of Love Bundle would be perfect as it had a tiny flower in the die set. Apronfront
I used the Basics Washi Tape Collections with this pattern of washi to create a fun background across the middle of my Whisper White layer.  Washi Tape is amazing!!!
Super cute Apron Card on my blog www.barbstamps.com Card also uses our three color Washi Tape collections check my blog for all the details. #stampinup #washitape #apronbuilder #apronoflove #barbstampsTied a perfect knot with our Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon behind my apron.

Merry Little Labels and Dyeing Ribbon Video

More fun with the Merry Little Labels stamp set. This set can be purchased as a bundle with the Everyday Label Punch saving you 10%.  I also used the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the Whisper White layer.  This folder is a must have!

Check out my blog to see how I created an ombre look on this image from the Merry Little labels stamp set.  I also have a video showing you how to dye our ribbons any color you want!!  Chekc it out at www.barbstamps.com #stampinup #barbstamp #christmascards

The gorgeous Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon was dyed with some drops of Dapper Denim ink and water. (scroll down for a video on this technique) Check out my blog to see how I created an ombre look on this image from the Merry Little labels stamp set.  I also have a video showing you how to dye our ribbons any color you want!!  Chekc it out at www.barbstamps.com #stampinup #barbstamp #christmascards To create the ombre look to the main image, I inked the left half of the stamp in Dapper Denim and then used a Sponge Dauber to pull the color over to the right side creating the gradation.  I also punched a scrap of Dapper Denim and added it behind the stamped image.  I rotated it 90 degrees and I think it looks pretty cool. :-)  And I also love the Foil snowflake!   Check out my blog to see how I created an ombre look on this image from the Merry Little labels stamp set.

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.

Cozy Critters Gift Tags

CloseoutYear End Closeout going on through January 3rd.  However, prices are available while supplies last so order early!!

Holiday Catalog Retiring List (some of these items are not only retiring but are on sale!)
Sale items (from Annual Catalog and items that are retired)

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!!)

World Traveling Party Pants

I used the World Traveler Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Going Places Designer Series Paper Stack along with the NEW Party Pants SAB item to create this card.

Party_pants_world

The greeting was inked in Basic Black, stamped on Very Vanilla and cropped with the 1-1/2" Circle Punch and layered on a 1-3/4" Circle Punch in Basic Black.  A couple different patterns from the Going Places DSP Stack and some Gold Sequin Trim.

Party_pants_world_close1The 1" strip of Going Global DSP was cropped with the Triple Banner Punner Punch and then I stapled the string of sequins to the banner with the 1/2" Circle Punch for a bit of added interest.

Party_pants_world_close
I cropped the corner of the main image with the Curvy corner Trio Punch and colored a White Perfect Accent with my Black Sharpie marker for a pop of black.
