color challenge 
My upline just challenged us to make a card using Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macron, and Flirty Flamingo .... Here is what I came up with... I used the hostess set Gift of Love.. What do you think?? 
I really like that you can bend the photopolymer  stamps to fit a shape like the curve of the label punch!

Little stinker

I had an idea in my head,but somehow whats in your head never comes out the same on paper.





Third time is the charm I think! I finally had  chance to play with my Foxy Friends stamp set and build a punch! The first 2 skunks kinda "stink" and wasn't what I had imagined in my head ! I really like the Watermelon colored one the best...even tho the designer series paper says the mushrooms are coral. Which one is your favorite?

I finally got my box of goodies and took the time to play a bit! I have to say that the new platform for the big shot is sooo wonderful!  When you come to my open house on Saturday you will be able to see it and use it! It made cutting the very intricate sizzletts so easy, like a hot knife in butter!! I hope you can come see me and my new goodies on Sat from 11 am to 4pm!

Design Process for the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper


I thought this was very interesting! I am patiently waiting for my box of goodies to arrive. Hopefully in time for my New Catty and Used stamp sale on June 18th from 11 to 3. It will be a BOGO. For every dollar you spend in the new catty, you will get to choose from my used stamps and goodies sales = to the same amt. Clear as mud right? Example.. if you spend 10.00 before shipping and handling in the new catty, you then have 10 "Barb Bucks" to spend in my gently used retired items.
It will be a fun time!
Well I am not sure where my utube video went ... hmm will find it and will post soon!

Shaker Card Technique by Stampin’ Up!

Here is a video from Stampin Up! I love the new dimensionals.. they are a little taller than the hexagon ones, and they do bend so easily! We will be doing shaker cards soon so be sure to check back for a date to do them.

Friday, June 3, 2016

I quite forgot to thank Julie Davison for all the inspiration she gives me... 2 of the cards were her design the other from Carrie Cudney in the home office!
Here is another u tube video from Stampin up
!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnPeB5y7bMU&feature=youtu.be
Here are some pictures of what we made in "Gypsy's Girls" club on Thursday! I will give you directions to make the little purse as soon as I can figure out to copy and share!!! This is quite a learning experience for me! Hang in there with me.. I'll get it ....eventually!



Measurements for Card Purse
2 pieces of dsp 4x8
8 pieces card stock ½ x 8 ½
1 piece card stock 7 x 2 ½ scored at ½ inch on all sides
Tape your ends to the outside.. they will be covered by the dsp and you will have a smooth inside.
Put the brad thru the purse handle  and top layer of purse before putting the “linning “ piece on. This way your brads are covered.

Kinda rustic directions but hopefully you will get it.. If you have any questions just leave a comment and I will try my best to answer them!
