Creative Inking Blog Hop - Masculine Cards

Creative inking logoWelcome to the Creative Inking Blog Hop, I am so excited to be part of this hop and I know you will enjoy all the projects this month.  Our theme this month is Masculine Cards.  The struggle is real when it comes to me making masculine cards and the struggle is even more real when I have to color something to make it look like real life!  But, I grabbed my Whiskey Business stamp set and this card just came to  me and I love it.  I kinda feel like I killed the coloring and I am patting my self on the back because I really struggle with coloring. :-)

I created the card during my Facebook Live show on Thursday night so you can watch the cropped video below.
Whiskey Business #mancard #masculinecard www.barbstamps.comI used the Whiskey Business stamp set and a tiny strip of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and I thing he paper makes the card.  just a tiny strip is the difference between an Ok card and a fabulous card!
Whiskey Business #mancard #masculinecard www.barbstamps.comI have been practicing my coloring skills and I think my coloring of this decanter and glass are pretty good if I do say so myself. :-)
Whiskey Business #mancard #masculinecard www.barbstamps.com Had to add a bit on interest to the inside of the card as well.

Creative Inking Blog Hop - Saying Goodbye to These Favorites

Creative inking logoWelcome to the Creative Inking Blog Hop, I am so excited to be part of this hop and I know you will enjoy all the projects this month.  Our theme this month is Saying Goodbye to These Favorites, our favorite retiring products.  My card uses the Lilypad Lake stamp set.  I created this fun Step Panel Pop Up Card and you can check out how I did it with the video below. It folds flat and fits in one of our Medium Envelopes for mailing.  The card looks complicated but it is really very easy to create. VIDEO Step panel fun fold card on my blog www.barbstamps.comOn the front of the card, I used Light Stampin' Blends markers to color in the water: Seaside Spray, Balmy Blue and Night of Navy.  The sail boats were colored with the Smoky Slate Combo Pack and the Light Basic Black Stampin' Blend.  I fussy cut the sail boats and added them with Mini Dimensionals. The sun was created by stamping the outline image in Mango Melody and inking a Sponge Dauber in Daffodil Delight and pressing it into the center of the circle.
VIDEO Step panel fun fold card on my blog www.barbstamps.comThe card will stand on it's own to display on a desk, table or mantle because whoever receives this is going to want to display it!!  My sentiment comes from the Perennial Birthday set that is also retiring.  I used the retiring Crackle Paint Background stamp with Balmy Blue ink and stamped it on the Navy base.
VIDEO Step panel fun fold card on my blog www.barbstamps.comI created two of the cards and I added a 4" x 4 1/4" panel of Seaside Spray to the back so I can write my message. 
Lilypad lake step panel slight frontI wrapped our Denim Ribbon around the top of the Seaside Spray layer to add some interest.

Tomorrow is not only my anniversary but it is the day I leave for the Stampin' Up! On Stage event in Minneapolis to see some of my very best stamping friends, I am so excited!!

Onto today's card, I created this last week during a recent Facebook Live FREE stamping class and you can see me make it in the video below.  It uses the Piece of Cake Bundle and I love it! Piece of cake navyI used a combination of the cakes to create mine, the "happy" and "birthday" pieces were inked in black and stamped on Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green and then cropped with the Cake Builder Punch which is included in the bundle.
Piece of cake navyI layered them onto another cake stamped in black on white that was colored with the Light Night of Navy, Light Granny Apple Green and the Light Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write Markers.  I also colored my Basic Pearls with those same Stampin' Blends.
Piece of cake navyI added some sentiments to the inside with the  Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set and one of the words from the Well Written Thinlits. My polka dots are from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch and the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack.

VIDEO-Lovely Lattice meets Wink of Stella

I have a fun card for you today, it uses one of the FREE Sale-a-bration stamp sets that you can earn with a $50 order placed in my store.  It is called Lovely Lattice and it is a gorgeous large image that you can color with Watercolor Pencils, Stampin' Blends, Stampin Write Markers or Wink of Stella.  Yep, you heard that right, I colored the flowers on this card with Wink of Stella and I am loving it!!
VIDEO for this card that uses Wink of Stella to color the flowers. www.barbstamps.com #lovelylattice #stampinup #barbstampsI stamped the image in Versamark and then heat embossed it with our black Embossing Powder.  The ribbon was colored with a Basic Black Stampin' Blend.
VIDEO for this card that uses Wink of Stella to color the flowers. www.barbstamps.com #lovelylattice #stampinup #barbstampsYou can see the shimmer on the flowers from the Wink of Stella and then I colored the leaves and around the lattice image with my Crumb Cake Stampin' Blend Markers.  Very simple yet stunning card.
VIDEO for this card that uses Wink of Stella to color the flowers. www.barbstamps.com #lovelylattice #stampinup #barbstampsI chose an image from the Tea Together stamp set for the inside of my card as I thought this gorgeous card would be perfect for Mother's Day.
