Shut the Barn Door!

I am in LOVE with this Barn Door Bundle! It has been so much fun designing samples for my upcoming class on March 17th!

Stampin' Up! Barn Door bundle was used by Candy Michael of Candy Stampers to make this adorable sliding door card.

I am a scrapbooker at heart and my idea behind this card was to have a photograph show as the door slides to the left. I take a million pictures & am known to carry my camera where ever I go. I am far from being a professional photographer as I just set my camera on auto & point & shoot!

Stampin' Up! Barn Door bundle was used by Candy Michael of Candy Stampers to make this adorable sliding door card.

Card measurements:
  • Card Base Basic Gray: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Front Panel Smoky Slate: 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Front Whisper White panel behind the door: 2 3/8″ x 4″
  • Cute photograph of my son: 2″ x 2 1/4″
  • Inside of card Whisper White: 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Barn Door Basic Gray (I used a scrap)

This picture is my son, Jonathan & his girlfriend Sarah. They are so happy together! Love them both! I think they are a great addition to my card!

Here is this adorable card in action:

 

 

Here are the supplies I used to make this card:


Heart Happiness in Berry Burst

We made this easy card using Heart Happiness stamp set in my February Card Club. I love our new Scattered Sequins Embossing folder for the deep added texture on the back ground.That layer is popped up with Dimensionals. We added the lovely Berry Burst Ribbon underneath the heart & popped it up with Dimensionals so it would lay evenly on top. I did use the Heart Framelit from Lots of Love Box Framelits Dies to cut out this heart. This can be a simple Thinking of you, or I love you or simply Hello card.

Here are the supplies I used to make this card:

Card Base: Whisper White 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″

Top Layer: Whisper White 5″ x 3 3/4″

Berry Burst Ribbon: I cut 2 pieces each at 4 1/4″, taped one piece around the back & tied the other piece once onto the front

Have fun creating your simple Heart Happiness cards!


Birthday Celebration Time Shaker Card

Birthdays are Celebration Time!  Show them you are ready to celebrate them with this fabulously fun handmade shaker birthday card! Thanks for the idea Terri!

I used our Clear Envelope to create the “shaker” pocket. Stamp your Whisper White square, cut the envelope creating a pocket, add in your sequins & tape the excess of the Clear Envelope to the back. This will make the sequins move & shake around in the pocket. I used Tear & Tape to adhere this square piece to the Lemon Lime Twist card stock. Lastly, I put Dimensionals on the back of the scalloped piece to pop it off the embossed front panel. I used a glue dot to adhere the bow to the front.

Beautiful Bouquet & Sunshine Wishes Wedding Card

I want to share with you this Beautiful Bouquet & Sunshine Wishes wedding card.  This is one of February’s cards for my Stamp Club. It was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest done by Jan Clothier.  We can always use a pretty wedding card. Wedding cards are fun to make, since weddings are such a happy occasion!  Do you know someone getting married that you could make this card for?  With a few tweaks it could easily be a Valentines Day card, an anniversary card or just a simple “I love you” note.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Bouquet & Sunshine Wishes handmade wedding card by Candy Michael of Candy Stampers

I made this card using our whisper white card stock and a piece of our window sheets. The stamp is from the Beautiful Bouquet set inked in Basic Gray. I love the Silver Foil Sheet along with the Basic Gray card stock to make the hearts pop! The hearts are cut from our Sunshine Wishes Thinlit Dies.
I love the finished look of our Layered Leaves 3D embossing folder.

To adhere it all together I used our Tear & Tape and Fine Tip Glue Pen.

Here are the card measurements:

Card Base: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
Cut the card at 7″ so the front of the card measures 1 1/2″ from the fold or score line (this will be the top of the card)
Cut one piece of Whisper White at 4″ x 1 1/4″ for the top layer & one piece at
4″ x 1 1/2″, use the Layer Leaves Embossing Folder on both of these pieces.
Cut one piece at 4 1/4″ x 1 3/4″-this will be your bottom base piece of the card that the window sheet will glue onto &
your 4′ x 1 1/2″ Embossed piece will layer on
Cut Window Sheet at 4″ x 4″
I used the Tear & Tape to adhere the Window Sheet

Santa’s Sleigh Framed Holiday Art

I am excited to share this framed holiday art project I made for a class & a craft fair.  I have used these stamps and die cuts to make many cards but as you see. They can also be used for home decor. The jingle bells were added using jute tied on with varied sized bells. The bells used were a mix of silver & gold. This project was loved by all!

This project started out with a standard 5″ x 7″ frame. I cut a layer of Garden Green card stock at 7″ x 5″ and a layer of Whisper White card stock (CS) 6 3/4″ x 4 3/4″.  I used my Big Shot and the Santa’s Sleigh Framelit dies to create the scene.  The sleigh was cut from Cherry Cobbler CS, Crumb Cake CS was used for the reindeer, Garden Green CS for the tree and Crushed Curry CS for the star on the tree.  Tombo Multipurpose glue was used to assemble the scene on the Whisper White layer of CS. The sentiment was stamped in Basic Black in using a sentiment from the (retired) Wonderful Year stamp set.  To finish it off, I used some linen tread wrapped around the frame to attach some jingle bells to the exterior of the frame.

I hope that this project inspires you to break out your stamps and framelits and create some holiday decor for this Christmas season and all year long.

I am including a list of supplies used to make this project with links to my store where you can purchase these items online.  Feel free to contact me with any questions or for help in placing your order.  I’d love to see you at Candy’s Stamping Studio in Powell, Ohio for a class.
