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.

Party Pants Balloons

Have you seen the NEW Party Pants stamp set?  If not, take a look.  It is such a great birthday set and it can be used for any birthday, male, female, adults, kids, anyone.  Just change the colors and you can have cards for all the birthdays on your list.

Party_pants_cucumber_pacific

I chose Pacific Point and Cucumber Crush for this card, perfect for my nephew.

The balloons were inked in Cucumber Crush, stamped off once and then onto my scraps of Whisper White.  I cropped them with the Balloon Bouquet Punch so I had two different sizes.  The greetings on the balloons come in the set and I inked them with Pacific Point and stamped them on the balloons.  The greeting "put your party pants on" just cracks me up and I know I will get a lot of use out of this set. 

I used a strip of the white Glitter Tape to separate the square of Everyday Chic DSP from the to of the card.  The strings are adhered to the back of each balloon and hand freely.

Measurements:
Everyday Chic DSP - 2-1/2 x 3
Whisper White - 3 x 4-1/4, scraps for balloons
Cucumber Crush - 3-1/4 x 4-1/2
Pacific Point - 5-1/2 x 8-1/2

Instructions:
1. Adhere Everyday Chic DSP to the Whisper White layer.
2. Run a strip of the white Glitter Tape across the Whisper White layer at the top of the DSP, leaving a bit hanging off the edge.
3. Ink balloon image in Cucumber Crush ink, stamp off once and then onto a scrap of Whisper White, repeat this to make two balloons. Crop with the Balloon Bouquet PunchGenerate Links , you want one of each size.
4. Stamp the greetings where shown in Pacific Point ink.
5. Put a small amount of SNAIL adhesive to the back of each balloon and add a 3" piece of the Whisper White Baker's Twine.
6. Add the large balloon to the Whisper White layer with SNAIL adhesive and the smaller balloon with a Stampin' Dimensional.
7. Adhere the Whisper White layer to the Cucumber Crush mat
8. Add this layer to the main card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Love is in the Air!

Love is in the air!!  How fun is this card?! :-)  I used the Balloon Celebration Bundle to create the balloons and the greeting is from Bloomin' Love. Balloon_celebration_valentine

The balloons were stamped in our Basic Black on a few different patterns from the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack.  I cropped them with the Balloon Bouquet Punch and added them to the balloon strings, the smaller ones were added with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The greeting is stamped in Rose Red and then a tiny black heart was cropped from the Owl Builder Punch and is covered with Wink of Stella in clear and added with a drop of adhesive from the Fine Tip Glue Pen.

Balloon_celebration_valentine_close1I wanted to add some interest to the left edge so I added a skinny strip of Basic Black and a strip of Rose Red trimmed with the Small Scallop Stampin Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade and the Stampin Trimmer Rotary Addition.

I love what this little element adds to the card.

The tiny bow on the balloons was hand cut with our Paper Snips.  I just love how this card turned out. :-)

Bow Builder Punch - 50% off!

The bow Builder PUnch is part of the online Extravaganza and is 50% off.  This awesome punch is only $9!!  Did you know that you can create more than bows with this punch?  Well, you Can!!

Here is one idea for you.....a Christmas Light bulb!  Yep, the Bow Builder Punch can be used to create Christmas Lights in any color.  I added my bulbs to these super cute Hershey's Nugget Treats.  These are the perfect gift for all those people on your list that you want to thank but can't spend too much to do so.

A_little_something_nuggets
The bulb is created by cropping the pieces in the color of your choice, and then trimming the largest piece to resemble the bulb.  Here's a visual for you:

Bow_bulb

I colored the base of the bulb with a Gold Sharpie Marker and added the detail with our White Stampin' Chalk Marker.

I used various strips of Designer Series Paper from the Home for Christmas Pack.  The strips are cut to 1" x 3", wrapped around the Nuggets and secured with a Glue Dot. 

A_little_something_papers

The little tray the chocolates are sitting in is 2" x 4" and scored 1/4" down each long side.  fold up the tray, add two strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive to secure the chocolates.  I purchased the 2" x 10" bags online.

The tag is stamped in Mossy Meadow and I used the A Little Something stamp set.  This is one of the items that will be retiring out of the Holiday Catalog so get it while you can.  The tag was die cut from the Tags & Labels Framelits set.

Ice Cream Cone Chapstick Holders

My daughter is a Freshman this year and has chosen to swim with our High School Swim Team.  They have a meet today and I wanted to give each of the girls a little something so show our school spirit.

Sprinkles_of_life_ladybroncs

I got the idea from my friend Becky.  I used the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and our school colors and packaged them individually with each girls name.  I hope they enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.

Swim Fast Lady Broncs!!!

Sprinkles_of_life_ladybroncs1 Sprinkles_of_life_cone_threeI used the Dots and Stripes Mask to add the polka dots to my tissue paper.  Lay the  mask over the tissue paper and use a Sponge Dauber to add the Soft Sky Ink to the dots.
Sprinkles_of_life_cone_side
I prepared the ice cream cones by stamping and punching/cutting the cones and ice cream. The cherry on top is one of the punch outs from the Cupcake Builder Punch and I added a tiny rhinestone for a bit of bling.

Sprinkles_of_life_cone_box*Cut your cardstock to 2-3/4 x 2-5/8
*With the 2-3/4 side at the top of the Simply Scored Tool, score at 5/8, 1-1/4, 1-7/8 and 2-1/2
*Turn and put the 2-5/8 side at the top and score at 5/8
*Cut and fold as shown, glue the flaps.

Fun Flowers with the DSP Stacks!

The new annual catalog is out! Woo hoo!!! I don’t know about you, but my wish list is long.

We have new Designer Series Papers and some of the stacks were used on these projects.  Check out these diagonal striped and tiny floral patterns! For this project, I used Daffodil Delight, Cucumber Crush, Pool Party, and Watermelon Wonder. It takes just a minute or two to make these fun little floral accents.  Punch a flower from each pattern in all four colors with the Flower Medallion Punch. Just snip the petals to give them a little dimension, layer them and add them to the tags using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The tags are cut from our Kraft Cardstock and were cropped with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch.

Striped_flowers

Don't you just love the adorable floral centers? They are our new 2015­–2017 In Color Blossom Accents.  Each flower is 1/2" in diameter and there are 20 flowers per package, four each of five colors.  The stamp sets featured here are Friendly Wishes and Sweet Stack.

I attached each flower tag to a striped layer (3-1/4 x 4-3/4) and then to our new Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut to 7 x 5 and folded in half.  This new cardstock is quite a bit thicker than our regular Whisper White and makes the perfect card base.

Another Diagonal Cut Pocket Card.  These are so easy and fun to make. 

View my video showing you how to make these cards > VIDEO-Diagonal Cut Pocket Cards.

I used the Crazy About You stamp set for the flower on this card and punched it out with the coordinating Flower Medallion Punch.   If you like the Flower Medallion Punch and it's coordinating stamp set, Petal Potpourri, get it this month as it will retire at the end of the Occasions Catalog.  I know because I have seen the New Catalog!!!!

Crazy_about_you_diag_pocket

Here is the card pulled out of the pocket.  I stamped the flower image in Tuxedo Memento Black and Crumb Cake.  I punched the Black flower out with the Flower Medallion Punch and hand cut the others.  I stacked them with Stampin' Dimensionals and then added a button from the Neutrals Button Collection.  The flower border image along the bottom edge of the card is from the Bordering Blooms set

Crazy_about_you_diag_pocket_out

I stamped the "hello" image from Hi There (retiring set) onto the panel of DSP from the Sweet Dreams Designer Series Paper Pack.  A little strip of card stock cropped with the Dotted Ribbon Scallop Border Punch peeks out from the bottom of the DSP.

Petal Potpourri - Fun Color Combination

2015_spring_16What a great color combination!!  My inspiration for this color combination came from the Sweet Sadie Designer Washi Tape.  Love the soft colors of the Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe paired with some bold Basic Black.

Had some fun with the Petal Potpourri stamp set and the coordinating Flower Medallion Punch.  These two products are offered individually or in a Bundle.  I always recommend bundles as they are discounted 15%.

Order your Petal Potpourri Bundle in my store at www.shoppingwithbarb.com

Here is a card I created with the Bundle and my fun color combination.

Petal_potpourri_cantaloupe
A  Project Life 4" x 3" Grid Card is my focal layer.  I added a Spiral Border Punch along the top of the card and then adhered my stamped and punched flowers.  A few strips of the Sweet Sadie Designer Washi Tape adds a fun detail to the black panel.

Tied a bow with the Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker's Twine and you can get it for 25% off this week as it is part of our Weekly Deals.

Simply_wonderfulThe greeting is from the Sale-a-bration set called Simply Wonderful that you can earn FREE with a $50 order.  I love this set as it has commonly used greetings in various fonts.

 

 

 

 

Here is a close up of the card and you can see the grid lines.  The lines add a bit more character to the card.  I also used the Flower Medallion Punch on a scrap of Pistachio Pudding card stock and added some leaves under the flower.
