You are just going to LOVE our December Blog Hop today. The Control Freaks team of stampers are all using new products from the Occasions 2018 Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration 2018 Catalog. You may be arriving to visit my blog from Julie Davison’s blog. Didn’t she have some fabulous ideas? If you are starting with me, either way I will direct you to the next blog in our hop.
I decided to use the new Barn Door stamp set and Sliding Door Framelits Dies for all three of my projects today. I used the new products three different ways and I’ll explain….
The first card shows you how to use the stamps and die-cuts in a usual card-making manner. Stamp and cut everything you need and glue in place. Simple right?
My 2nd card uses two of the doors and I glued the handles in place so they are raised. I was then able to slide the Baker’s Twine through the handles to tie the doors shut:
By adding scored lines on the far end of each door, as you untie the twine, the doors open to reveal a sentiment:
My final card uses the stamps and dies as intended, a real barn door that slides from both sides, left to right and right to left:
When you slide the doors back and forth, there’s a different sentiment behind each door that is revealed:
Stay tuned for another post explaining how I created each card and thanks for visiting today. I will now direct you to my talented teammate Cindy Elam and make sure you visit all of the participants in the hop! See you in January!
