The smallest size includes a pierce point while the largest three sizes have a tiny center hole. Put that hole punch away and let our Die-namics do the work for you!

My Favorite Things Designer

Today we welcome Barbara Anders. We are so excited to have her showcase her work today on Paper Crafter’s Library. You can see Barbara’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about her:

PrintBarbara had dabbled a bit in paper crafting but about five years ago started a little scrapbooking. She was immediately fascinated and started buying a few stamps and supplies at craft stores. Since then she’s  branched out and has had the awesome good fortune to be able to design for fabulous companies. Most importantly, though, through this craft she’s met some of the most talented and amazing people—people that “I am proud to call “friend”.”




Fabulous Card

I needed a card for a good friend of mine who was there for me at a difficult time.  The “fabulous” greeting was exactly what I was looking for and I wanted it to shine.  With that in mind, I kept the background of the card fairly simple – just black and white tones.  This allowed the greeting to stand out!



1. From Black Licorice card stock, create a card base, 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
2. Trim Sweet Tooth card stock to 5 1/2″ x 3 1/4 and stamp all over with Black Licorice Hybrid ink and MPD Damask Designs stamp set.
3. Stamp “Fabulous” sentiment on edge of black card base with Versamark and heat emboss with gold embossing powder.
4. Adhere stamped panel to card base with foam tape.
5. Adhere enamel dots.


Stamps: MPD Damask Designs, Simply Fabulous Sayings (MFT)
Paper: Sweet Tooth card stock, Black Licorice card stock (MFT)
Ink: Black Licorice Hybrid ink (MFT); Versamark
Other: foam tape (Scotch), gold fine detail embossing powder (Ranger), heat tool, enamel dots (My Mind’s Eye)

We hope you have enjoyed today’s feature. We want to extend a sincere thank you to Barbara Anders for her fabulous project and My Favorite Things for sharing their company with us. Be sure to visit My Favorite Things to see more of their products and their blog for some inspiration!

In order to enter the give-away to win the Sequins Die-namics shown above, please leave us a comment in the comments section of this post. One winner will be announced next Wednesday on the Paper Crafter’s Library blog!
