Clean and simple

Sometimes, when creating cards, less is more.  The card below was created using Stampin’ Up! products, by Erica B. Cerwin, of Pink Buckaroo Designs.  Erica used the Heart Happiness Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Heartfelt Blooms Wood-Mount Stamp Set to create this sweet card.  I love the clean and simple design of this card, which also equates to easy and quick! This would be a great Valentines Day card, but you could also use it throughout the year, just to let someone know that you are thinking about them.  I always like when stamps can be used for more than one occasion, and these sets definitely meet that criteria!  Be sure and check out Erica’s blog, Pink Buckaroo Designs, to see more of her inspiring creativeness. 


Eat, sleep, create, repeat.

Were you raised in a barn? Well….

One of the accent decor pieces that you see all over Pinterest these days is the sliding barn door as an interior door for your home.  The one pictured below is an example, and came from La Mode Design’s blog.


Pretty cool idea……and, in my opinion, it goes nicely with a lot of different decor themes.  Leave it to a stamp company like Stampin’ Up!, to translate this decor idea into a stamp and die set that is also an interactive slider card!  The minute I saw the cards that were created using this stamp set on Pinterest, I was in love. Check out the samples below.

I think there are so many awesome things that you can do with this stamp set.  It is just one of those sets that you can use for any season, and make special for any and every occasion.  You can order the Barn Door set (stamps AND dies!) direct from the Stampin’ Up! website, or you can order from your Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, if you have one.  You should definitely check out the blogs of the Stampin’ Up! demonstrators that I have listed above for inspiration, and also to check out their gorgeous creations. Who knows, one of them may be waiting to be your new Stampin’ Up! demonstrator!
