A couple of weeks ago I showed you a card we made at our monthly club meeting using the stamp set called Barn Door. You can see it here. This stamp set has matching dies called Sliding Door Framelits. The card we made earlier did not use the dies to make a sliding door, but this one does.
These dies are so easy to use. They look a lot more complicated then they are. The openings where the doors slides are made from one die so there is no guesswork on where it goes. Here is what the card looks like with the door on the other side.
As you can see it is a cute interactive card. Here is a video showing you how to make it.
The only thing I did differently is to put two Mini Dimensionals together to use instead of a washer or coin. That makes the card a bit lighter in weight.
The colors I used for this card are Read Red, Early Espresso, Shaded Spruce, Crushed Curry and Gray Granite. I stamped the door on a piece of Designer Series Paper Series Paper called Festive Farmhouse. I also ran a piece of Real red Cardstock through the Big Shot using the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder.
Stampin’ Up!® is offering a limited time bundle during the month of November called Snowflake Showcase. It consists of two stamp sets called Happiness Surrounds and Snow Is Glistening, a set of dies called Snowfall Thinlits, White Velvet Paper and Snowfall Trinkets. It is an awesome set of products that I knew I had to have the minute I saw it. The snowflake dies are the most beautiful I have ever seen. One stamp set is for the Christmas or winter season and the other can be used year round.
I used the Happiness Surrounds stamp set for this card to show you it is not just for winter. The colors I used are Lemon Lime Twist, Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana and Highland Heather. I first embossed a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Lemon Lime Twist using the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder. Then I punched out a circle of Flirty Flamingo using the 2 1/4″ Circle Punch and embossed that using the Subtle Embossing Folder to give it a little texture. I stamped and cut out the rest of the pieces and layered a piece of Gold Metallic Thread behind it before adhering it to the circle using Dimensionals. The Gold Metallic Thread added a little sparkle to the card.
The sentiment is from the stamp set called Tropical Chic.
Remember these products are only available through the month of November or as supplies last. Don’t miss out on these beautiful products. I put all of them in the links below.
Good morning! Every other Friday is the day Buffy, Jackie and I do a Stamp Off Challenge. Today we have a color challenge.
These color are part of the 2016 In Colors. They will be retiring on May 31st, which makes me sad. I love this set of In Colors. As a reminder, if you like them you should purchase them pretty soon. Once the retirement list comes out they disappear quickly.
Here is my card using these colors:
I decided to use the stamp set called Beautiful Bouquet. This set has matching Framelits called Bouquet Bunch and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. First I stamped the stems and leaves in Emerald Envy on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Then I stamped the flowers in Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo and cut them out using my Big Shot and the matching dies. I know it is hard to see, but the piece of Peekaboo Peach Cardstock I used for the background was embossed using a new Embossing Folder the is in the 2018 Occasions Catalog called Simple Stripes.
Now, lets go see what fantastic creations Jackie and Buffy made. I am always awed by their creativity.
