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!

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?

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.

Epic Celebration

Hi friends,

Here is a card I made for my grandson.  It was made using the Epic Celebrations stamp set and Pacific Point ink with Aqua Painters. 

I just adore this Epic Celebrations stamp set, but you can’t buy it. You can ONLY earn it for FREE!! 

With a qualifying order, you can get this stamp set for FREE as a Sale-A-Bration 2018 option..

Stampin' Up! Epic Celebraton with Brusho colour crystals and headhones  Great teenage card by Barbara Lash of Stampin' With Barbara

This card was made on a thick Whisper White card base, 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. 

I then added a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Pacific Point card stock that had been stamped with the dots in Pacific Point ink.

Next I used Pacific Point Ink with the Aqua painter to ‘splash’ on color as I liked it.

Using Memento Ink, I stamped the headset and the message — added some more color and voila!

My grand son loved it  AND that’s saying something for a 16yr. old!
