Dutch Door/Barn Door Card | Best Wishes

I have heard this type of card called a Dutch Door Card or Barn Door Card.  I thought I would share this with you so that you can see more of the prints in action from the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051).

Best Wishes Dutch Door4

I layered some of the patterns from the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051)  onto pieces of Lemon Grass (CS-0019) before adhering them to a Bubble Gum (CS-0099) card base.  Using the Spring Botanicals (SS-0544), I stamped the flower image on Whip Cream (CS-0040) in Watermelon Fusion (IP-0027) ink and then the stems in Lemon Grass (IP-0022) ink.  I used the Journey Ovals (DI-0042) to cut out the stamped piece.  Using Lemon Grass (IP-0022) ink, I stamped the Best Wishes from the Everyday Script Bundle (BD-0344) onto a piece of Bubble Gum (CS-0099) card stock before cutting it out using the coordinating die.

Using Sparkle Silk (IP-0126) and a Small Blending Brush (TO-0097), I brushed the Sparkle Silk onto the floral image.

Using the Just Write Gel Pens (JD-0060), I traced over the letters in Best Wishes to add a little more interest.

I adhered the pieces onto the card base using Easy Glide (AD-0081.  I still felt that it needed something so I added some Fashion Gold (AC-0292).  I really think they helped to finish off the card.

And because I am curious, what do you call this type of card, Dutch Door or Barn Door.  Drop me a comment and let me know.

Bloom This Way Trends Mini Catalog

Bloom This Way

The Bloom This Way Trends Mini Catalog (CL-0030) is here!!!!  From Beautiful Blooms to Building a Super, we’ve got you covered!!  And I have to be honest with you, I think this is by far the best Bloom This Way Mini Trends catalog ever!!!  I want every single item in the catalog.  Now if only that money tree would grow in the backyard.

Check out this flipbook showing all the goodies that are waiting for you.

If you are like me and need to actually touch the catalog, you can order one from my on-line store (24/7) and enter product number CL-0030.

My biggest problem is going to be which stamp set should I use first.  Or maybe I should use the Gorgeous (yes Gorgeous with a capital “G”) printed papers first.  I just can’t decide.

Be sure to drop me a line in the comments and let me know what product (s) from the new Bloom This Way Trends Mini is your favorite.  I would love to hear from you.

Warm Wishes |Snowflakes | Snow Blooms

Seeing that it is now officially winter and it snowed overnight in the Northeast, I thought this card was very fitting for today.  I love everything about this card and I have to thank one of my fellow coaches LeAnn for the inspiration.  I love the colors, style and yes the Mirror Silver (CS-0137) paper!!!

Warm Wishes Snowflakes

On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0137) card stock, I stamped the images from the Snow Burst (SS-0144) stamp set in Cool Pool (IP-0074) ink.  Then I stamped the words Warm Wishes from the Hello Fall (SS-0450) stamp set in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.   Before I adhered this panel to a piece of Cool Pool (CS-0118), I added some Sparkle Silk (IP-0126).

The Cool Pool panel was adhered to a Whip Cream (CS-0040) card base.  For the center snow flakes, I used the Snow Blooms Die (DI-0253) to cut the images out of Mirror Silver (CS-0137) and Cool Pool (CS-0118) card stock.  I adhered the larger one onto the card front using a Foam Square (AD-0085) and then used Glue Dots (AD-0083) to adhere the other snowflakes on top of the big one.  To finish it off  I added a Sparkle Drop (AC-0022) in the center of the snowflakes.  I love these, they come in different sizes and are just so pretty.

Warm Wishes Snowflakes 2
This is by far my favorite card of the season!!

Happy Winter!!!
