Lori Ballitch, a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and Team Member from Mansfield, Ohio, designed our first project. This adorable Narrow Note Card stamped with the A Good Day stamp set is packed with cuteness.  Isn't the bitty lamb adorable?

Crystal Cleveland, a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Marengo, Ohio dazzled us with her Party Panda Fancy Fold Card.  The fun Painted with Love polka dot designer paper continues the party theme.

This handsome Narrow Note card with matching envelope was created by Tara Griffin, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Kissimmee, Florida.  Tara's clever tip is to use a circle punch to add a matching envelope liner.

How to Make Sliding Barn Door Cards

Barn Door Slider Card

Hello Friends,

Do you love Barn Doors?  Do you love Slider Cards?  Today, we'll combine the two to make 6 super cute Barn Door Slider Cards.    Here's a Step by Step tutorial on how to Make Barn Door Slider Cards and a half dozen samples to get you started. This blog post was originally planned for Friday, but technically difficulties got in the way.  Hopefully it was worth the wait, thanks for your patience.   This first card was made with the Barn Door Bundle and the Hardwood Background Stamp.   Watch the Video below to Learn how to make this fun card.

Inks and Papers for cards above are Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Whisper White Card Stock; Early Espresso and Daffodil Delight Ink; Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Markers.

 

Barn Door Wedding Slider Card


Love this soft Barn Door Wedding Card!  The Card Base is Soft Sky Card Stock.  I embossed the front with the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I stamped on Wood Textures Designer Paper to make the door.  Because designer paper is thinner, I backed my door with a piece of card stock.  I borrowed the sentiments from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set.

Inks and Papers for card above are Soft Sky, Whisper White, Basic Black Card Stock; Wood Textures Designer; Paper, Marina Mist, Powder Pink and Crumb Cake Ink.

Dragon Sliding Barn Door Card

I simply couldn't resist adding a dragon to at least one of my Barn Door Slider Cards.  I colored him with Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends and a Emerald Envy marker.  Then, I made him shine with a few swipes of my Wink of Stella Brush.  For a castle look, I embossed with the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and made a Wood Textures Door.

Inks and Papers for card above are Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Emerald Envy, Whisper White Card Stock; Wood Textures Designer Paper; Tuxedo Black Momento Ink; Emerald Envy, Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach Marker;  Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends.

Barn Door Wedding Slider Card

 This card is similar to my original Barn Door Card.  I went with Basic Gray instead of Crumb Cake to compliment my Cherry Cobbler Barn Siding.  To make the rough siding look, I stamped with the Hardwood Background stamp.  The Anniversary sentiments are from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set.  It says, "Love isn't in the Falling.  It's in the Staying There,  Happy Anniversary".  

Inks and Papers for card above are Basic Black, Basic Gray, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White Card Stock;  Basic Gray, Crumb Cake, Powder Pink, Early Espresso Ink.

Primitive Barn Door Slider Card

To make a primitive looking Barn door card I focused on Textured Wood Designer Paper and Early Espresso Card Stock.  Because designer paper is thinner than card stock, I backed the Wood Texture designer paper with card stock.

Inks and Papers for card above are Basic Black, Early Espresso, Smoky Slate, Whisper White Card Stock; Wood Textures Designer Paper; Early Espresso, Tranquil Tide, Dapper Denim Ink.

An Oversized Dinosaur Birthday Card for a 2-Year Old

Tenneson

Hello Friends,

My grandson, Tenneson, recently turned 2 and he's coming for a visit!  A 2-year that's so dynamite handsome needs a Big, Big Birthday Card to celebrate his 2nd Birthday.  Let me show you what I whipped up in my stamp room.


Dinosaur Birthday Card for a 2-Year Old

He admired the dinosaur on his recent Valentine that I sent him, so I thought the I would let the Myths & Magic Designer Paper dictate the size of his birthday card.  His Birthday Card measures 6" x & 7", but it sports 3 fabulous dinosaurs for him to admire!  That's the beauty of making handmade cards.  You can make them any size that you want.  Plus, I was able to personalize it to say, "Look Who's Turning 2"!


Milestone Birthday Card

Notice all the dazzle on the dinosaurs and the knights!  I cut the "2" multiple times and stacked them up to make a dimensional 2.  The "Look Who's Turning" stamp is from the Number of Years stamp set.  Hint:  The Number of Years stamp set is photopolymer so I was able to manipulate the stamp to make a curvy script, instead of the half rounded sentiment.  Simply bend and stretch to the shape you want on a block.  I did have a few false starts; my fingers are blue.  But I was determined and in the end, I prevailed.

Enjoy your weekend!  We're taking a long weekend to make Maple Syrup, but I have 2 new video tutorials planned for you next week, so be sure to stop back by.  I love to hear from you.  If you enjoyed today's post, be sure to leave a comment.

 

Have a fabulous day,
