Hi Friends!

I can’t believe we are at the end of MARCH ALREADY!!!!!

Sale A Bration has three days left!

If you have a Wish list collecting dust, now is the time to hurry and place your order!

If you need help, please contact me.

These cards were made using the gorgeous Springtime Foils Specialty Paper. It’s FREE with any $50 product order!!!!!

If you haven’t had time to check out Pinterest–  using THIS GORGEOUS PAPER –you MIGHT want to do so!

So many beautiful and easy samples!

We’ve made a lot in my classes and you can too!

These were made using an hombre of Peek A Boo Peach and Berry Burst inks. The second card uses Night of Navy.

I love how simple and FAST they were to make!

The base is the usual 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 Whisper White. The layer is 5 1/4 x 4.

Then I used the Layering Ovals Framelits to ‘Big Shot’ the images. Popped that layer on with Dimensional ( under a piece of ribbon..just knotted once for an added dimension.

I used some Gold Foil paper to punch out a butterfly and ..voila!

What do YOU think?

Oh So Eclectic Embossing Paste

HI Friends,

I am a big fan of Embossing Paste.

 This card, inspired by Stamping With Joy, uses the White Paste with the the Patterned Party Decorative mask.

It is EASY to use. It dries very quickly and the texture it adds is lovely. The Oh So Eclectic Bundle is fun to use and the colors are so fresh and pretty.

I also added a Faceted Jewel to the center of one flower…just another eye appealing dimension!

Blossoming Basket Weave

Hi Friends,

I love this card.

I love the Crumb Cake base.

I love the Soft Suede layer AND I LOVE the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.

Using Calypso Coral makes the image pop..

What do you think?

And coloring is one of my favorite things to do (I LOVED KINDERGARTEN!)

SO I used combinations of Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip inks ( and markers)  with my Aqua Painter to paint the design of the basket from the Hanging Basket stamp set.

Added a piece of Calypso Coral ribbon and ta-da!

Party Pandas Painted With Love

Hi Friends,

Isn’t this cute little Party Panda cute?  You can’t buy the Party Pandas stamp set – but you can earn it for FREE (for two more weeks). I know this looks like a Valentine’s Card –0-and it is! BUT this stamp set has many more uses!

Kids love PANDAS!

I LOVE PANDAS!

You could use this for a sweet birthday card –or even for a wedding, anniversary or even an adorable SHOWER card!

Think outside the box!

Stampin' Up! Painted with Love Party Pandas handmade card by Barbara Lash of StampingWithBarbara

I simply cut the Whisper White base to 11 x 4 1/4 and scored at 5 1/2″.

Then a layer of Melon Mambo ( 5 1/4 x 4)

Then the DSP at 5 x 3 3/4.

I added Powder Pink ribbon as a horizontal accent behind the panda.

The real fun was stamping the panda and adding punched out hearts in Gold Foil and the Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series paper.

Half Full Embossing Paste Bricks

Hi Friends,

Embossing paste is FUN and easy to use!

It creates another dimension and interest to what ever project you are making!

Add a hint of color to it and you have yet another layer of dimension!

This card was copied from one done by Demonstrator, Tami Hewlett.

I love her color combos and the added Embossing Paste gives it a bit of elegance.
