Which One?

Which One?

There’s a discussion going on here at Central Bark and we need your input. Ann thinks one way. My favorite huMAN thinks another.

I’m not getting in the middle of this so I need your help.

Here’s the original card that we made with two things – first, the Balloon Bash stamp set that Ann got for free from Stampin’ Up!. Wasn’t that nice of them to give Ann this stamp set at the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference to bring home to me.

Same Colors, Different Mojo

Same Colors, Different Mojo

Do you ever get on a roll with color? Like when you get certain colors out and make a lot of cards with mostly the same colors?

Did you see yesterday’s card? If you did, then maybe you might think that we’re on one of those color rolls too. We don’t use a lot of Calypso Coral, but we used a ton of it along with Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper that you can get free until the end of this month.

But today we used a different mojo -a different layout.

Gift Card Holder Bag

I was sneaking a peek onto the stamp table and what do you think I found?

Ann FINALLY got out our Mini Treat Bag Thinlits! It’s about time!

And she made a great little bag to hold a gift card that will fit inside of a standard envelope.

You could make 48 of these from one pack of the free Designer Series Paper you can get…

Are You Ready for Easter?

Have you started making your Easter cards? I find that stampers either make their cards really early or last minute.

Which one are you?

I’m almost ashamed to say that we are…

So Long Blendabilities!

So Long Blendabilities!

I know that I barked this somewhere in the last couple weeks, but just in case you didn’t know – Stampin’ Up! isn’t producing the Blendabilities. They didn’t measure up to Stampin’ Up!’s high standards, so bye-bye, my friend.

We loved the, but there was life before Blendabilities and that’s our Many Marvelous Markers!

So we dusted ours off and played with them last night. I must bark that…

How to Make a Pac Man Card Video

That Pac Man card I had Ann make last week was so popular that we thought you’d like to learn to make it along with us with a video.

Was I right?

Ann has some fond memories playing with this little yellow guy. It was WAY before my time and I’m sure not quite as much fun as playing with a Jack Russell Terrier like me.

Making a Quick Thank You Card

It’s not hard to make a thank you card. In fact, we could’ve made this with any bold greeting stamp set to use for a birthday card or a wedding card or a get well card.

The Big on You stamp set is perfect for this, but we started by making our own background paper using the Petal Potpourri stamp set.

Make a Handmade Card Better

Isn’t it nice to get a card in the mail? Doesn’t it make you feel loved?

Before the end of this post that I’m barking to Ann. (I wish she’d type faster.) We’ll make our Sunday List of Special Days to send cards coming this week.

But first, here’s a card Ann & I got this week from Denise & I’ll even bark later how Denise made it better than it looks.
