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.

Brusho and Beautiful Day stamp set

If you follow me on Facebook, you probably saw my Brusho swatches that I was playing around with. Well, I made them into cards.

I will share the first one with you today.

I used the big, bold, beautiful flower from the Beautiful Day stamp set as well as the Brilliant Red Brusho powder.


I used watercolor paper for my first attempt at Brusho. I wet the paper first with an aqua painter. I then sprinkled the brilliant red brusho and a little bit of gamboge (orange) brusho onto the wet paper. Then spritzed it with water again from about 4" away.


I wanted it to dry fast so that I could emboss over it, so I used my heat tool to dry it. I then used white emboss powder and embossed the flower over it and cut it out.


For the leaf, I did the same as above, only with the moss green brusho and cut it out and adhered the leaf onto the red flower. I backed it with the gorgeous Petal Passion designer paper, black shimmer ribbon and a few rhinestones in the middle of the flower.


I'm really enjoying the brusho and all the unique combinations that can be created with it. I have more to share so come back again soon!

Until the next time...

Picture Perfect Birthday- Stampin Up

I'm sharing a super sweet birthday card with you today. I got this idea from Janice Weightman, in a swap that we did together.

I loved the colors and the simplicity of this card. It was a snap to put together, especially with the beautiful Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set and gorgeous Picture Perfect Party designer paper. You seriously need to check out this paper in the Occasions Catalog or the product list that I posted below. It is amazing!


This is the coolest birthday verse ever... Cue the Confetti- I love it! I also love all the vibrant colors. I used lemon lime twist, peek a boo peach, pool party, so saffron and berry burst inks and cardstocks. The lemon lime twist banner was punched with the Triple Banner Punch to create the tail on the banner, which I placed side-ways on the card.


I added a few rhinestone gems to the candle flames for shine and sparkle. I love how easy, but so cute, this card is. I could whip up dozens of these in no time at all!

Thanks for stopping by today.

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.

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...
