Stampin' Up Barn Door Stamps and Dies

I have some fun cards to share with you today, made with the new Stampin' Up Barn Door Bundle.

Its such a fun set to play with. I've created 3 different designs and one of them we will make at Card Class this week. Yay!

The first card is also made with the " This Little Piggy" stamp set. I thought it would be fun to put the piggy in the barn. It works perfectly with this set. I will post a Stampin' Up video below, showing just how to make a barn door card with the Barn Door Bundle. So scroll to the bottom of this post to see it.

The cardstock that I used is whisper white and basic black and also the Woodgrain Designer Series paper. The inks are smoky slate, crumb cake, pink pirouette, and the memento black pad.


I colored in the pig with the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I used both the smoky slate and pink pirouette sets of markers.

If you watch the video below, you will also get a list of the "behind the scenes" items that were used to put this card together. I will also post the supply list below.


I used the Stampin Write water based markers to color directly on the wreath stamp in crumb cake, pink pirouette and basic black.

How cool is this? The door slides back and forth to reveal the message. The whisper white piece that has the pig/message stamped on it is 41/4" x 2 1/2". The card base is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.  The door is cut out with a framelit from the barn door set.



This is the card that we will be making at Card Class this week:


I hope the card class girls like it!


The colors are whisper white, crumb cake and basic black- same for the inks as well as cherry cobbler. I also used the Hardwood Background stamp for the card base. Same measurements as above.


I colored the wreath, the same way as above... using the early espresso and cherry cobbler Stampin' Write markers.



It's so fun to slide the door back and forth!


Here are both cards:


And slide...


One last quick card that I made while I had extra pieces to use up...


The inks on the sign, greeting and flowers are dapper denim, calyso coral and marina mist.

Magical Day and a Bit of Brusho

Oh my goodness. I had so much fun creating this mermaid card today. I went a little wild and over the top, but, that's the way I roll.

The Magical Day stamp set and coordinating Magical Mates dies are absolutely fabulous! You may have passed this set by in the Occasions catalog, thinking its just for kids. But, I'm here to tell you, first of all, YES, the kids in your family will absolutely LOVE receiving cards made with this set, and secondly, YOU will love making cards and scrapbook pages with this charming suite. The stamps, dies, designer paper, glimmer paper and washi tape- they all coordinate and look amazing together!

So, here's the card. There is something else super cool about this card, that I will point out, in a minute. Are you seeing it?


Did you notice the turquoise and the iridescent glimmer paper? Its from the new Myths and Magic glimmer paper pack. So, I thought it would be cool to try the new Brusho on the iridescent glimmer paper! It turned out so cool. I sprinkled 5-6 shakes of the Prussian Blue Brusho onto the dry glimmer paper. I then spritzed it with water a few times from about 8" away. Then, I took a paper towel and sopped up the excess water. Viola! It looks awesome! You saw it HERE FIRST folks. Can't wait to play with the brusho on glimmer paper with more colors as well.



I cut the waves and the mermaids with the Magical Mates dies. I didn't want the waves lined up perfectly straight, so I offset them a little. The Mermaids were colored with the Stampin Blends Alcohol Markers.


I used silver emboss powder to emboss the Magical day greeting and cut it out with the dies.


Can you see the little Clear Glitter Epoxy bubble's?

I added a bunch.. I love these little bubbles. So perfect for under the sea.

I adore these little mermaids. I couldn't decide if I liked the blonde, brunette or redhead better, so I used all three!


I used a LOT of ribbon on this card. I wanted to tie in all the sparkly colors of the card with the ribbon colors.


I kept the inside very simple... as the outside was so over the top.


This card sparkles and glitters from every angle. I wish you could see it in person.


I used so many dimensionals on this super layered up, magical card. I think I set a record.


Three little Mermaids wishing you a Magical Day. It doesn't get much better than that.


I hope you, go back a take a look at the Magical Day stamp set in the Occasions Catalog. *link on sidebar* Its not just for kids (who by the way, think this is the best set ever!) its for us big people too!


I'll have more Brusho creations for you later this week. So stop back again!

Until the next time...

Valentine with a fun Surprise inside

Another valentine card made and ready to be given to someone sweet. I used the Heart Happiness stamp set and coordinating Sweet and Sassy framelits. Because, as you know, I LOVE Valentines and hearts and pretty paper!

I only used one ink pad on this card- calypso coral. It looks like the heart has more than one color, but that is because of the unique carving of this beautiful stamp.


The cardstock used is whisper white, pink pirouette and melon mambo. I also used the gorgeous Painted with Love designer paper and Gold Glimmer paper.


I used the new gold tinsel trim to make a bow and attached an Enamel Glitter Dot over the knot in the ribbon.


So, do you want to see what's inside?


A cute little "pop up" heart <3


For instructions on how to make a pop up heart: click here to view a previous post.

I can't get enough of this beautiful designer paper..


The verse is borrowed from the Painted Palette stamp set.


I hope you are having fun making your valentines for next month.

Thanks again for stopping by!

Valentine Card in 3-D

I'm going to share a pretty simple Valentine, (love, wedding or anniversary) card with you today. There's not much stamping going on, just some simple die cuts and folds.

I used the Sweet and Sassy heart framelit dies, the Diagonal Stripe Background stamp, berry burst metalic edge ribbon, sweet sugarplum cardstock, powder pink cardstock and rich razzleberry ink for this 3 dimensional valentine.


This is the card from the top, looking down on it.


And here it is from the side.


I cut 8 of the largest hearts in the Sweet and Sassy framelit set. And then scored them down the middle with the Simply Scored tool. This photo shows 3 of the 8 hearts.


Next, I attached them back to back on only one side of the heart.


I did this with all 8 hearts.


The back will end up like this. This will be what you will adhere to the card. NOTE: the hearts in these photos are smaller than the hearts on the card. But still the same technique was used.


This is what the front of all the hearts looks like, once you have all 8 attached to each other.


After you attach the 3 D heart to the front of the card- fluff it out. The hearts actually lay flat inside an envelope and pop up once taken out of the envelope, so its easy to send in the mail!


I hope you give this 3 D pop up a try. It really is simple, but packs a punch!

Thanks for visiting today.

Until the next time...

A Couple of shares from the Stampin Up Convention

I have two projects that I forgot to share with you. I made these during the Stampin Up Convention Make n Take event.

The first card is made with the Petal Palette stamp set. The designer paper on this card is called Petal Passion and its all black and white patterns. However, we colored in some of the images on the paper with a calypso coral Stampin Write marker to match the bird and cardstock. This way, we can make it any color we want!


I love the layout and the layering on this card and also the little details, like the Petal Passion silver flower and leaf embellishments, tucked within the layers of the card.


Here's one more project for you. A couple of darling little tags made with the Fruit Basket stamp set and coordinating punches.

Of course, I LOVE the tiny little pineapples! I can't wait to make them PINK!


The punches are so cute - theres also a strawberrry and a citrus slice (the hole in the top of the tag is actually punched with the citrus slice) as well as the pear and pineapple punches. The Tutti Frutti designer paper is new too. These patterns are subtle, but there are so many bright and fruity patterns as well, in this package.

Thanks for visiting today.

Until the next time...

My Pretty Valentine- Stampin' Up Style

Yes, its time for another pretty Valentine! I had so much fun making this one. Its all the colors that I love and even some glimmer and shine!

I made this for a swap that I host with other demonstrators across US and Canada. I'm so excited to share this Heart Happiness stamp set and the gorgeous "Painted with Love" designer paper.

I used powder pink, melon mambo and whisper white cardstock, as well as gold glimmer paper.

To cut out the heart window and the smaller hearts, I used the Sweet and Sassy heart shaped framelit dies. I attached some dimensionals behind the heart window to pop it up from the card.


Its so vibrant and shiny in real life. I wish you could see that in these photos.


Here's the inside. Sweet and simple. This is the only place that I actually used the Heart Happiness stamp set. The colors are calypso coral, rich razzleberry and melon mambo. The verse on the front of the card is from a new set called, "Petal Palette."


Isn't the "Painted with Love" designer paper, stunning?


The "Love" mini tinsel trim is new in the Occasions catalog as well. It comes in powder pink (shown here) and gold.


I cut the powder pink cardstock 4" x 3 3/4" on top- the smaller piece is 4" x 1 1/2" on bottom. The strip of designer paper on the bottom of the card is 4" x 3/4" and the gold glimmer is 4" x 1/2". The designer paper behind the cut out heart is 1/4" smaller each way than the powder pink. The whisper white card is the standard 4 1/4" x 11- then folded in half.


Oh how I love these beautiful colors, especially for Valentines Day.


I can't wait for my friends to get their cards. I even made a few for my friends and family at home.

Thanks so much for visiting today.

Until the next time...
