My card today is Sale-a-Brating Sale-a-Bration with the beautiful Advant Garden Stamp Set.  This set is very veristal, as you can do bold watercolor stamping with the bold flower.  Or if you like to color, you can use our New Watercolor Pencils or the Stampin' Up!'s Stampin Write Markers.  In additional there are three beautiful verses.  This set is such a great value but to get it free is even better.

#avantgarden #lindabauwin

The card I made with this set uses those New Watercolor Pencils along with the Falling Petals Embossing Folder.  Doesn't look like Falling Petals to me looks like hearts, what do you think?  I also used the Lace Doilies, they are so fun to use they are Vanilla on one side but White on the other.  I also used the newly released Stitched Shape Framelits to finish off the card.

Again this set is so veristal, that you don't want to overlook it during Sale-a-Bration because when it's gone it's gone.

Now let's hop over to see what Diane Evans has to share.   Or hop back to Dena Rekow has for us.

Quick Technique with Detail Dragonfly Thinits Dies

Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies

Have to admit I am in love with these Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies.  Today I am going to share a quick technique to use them.

As you will see in the video, you can create die-cut dragonflies in seconds with Thinlits dies and the Big Shot.  The precision plate is also recommended for the detailed dies. There are five thinlit dies in this set.  With a mix of open images and detailed images, these dies can cut detailed die-cuts or frame stamped images. Detailed die includes ejection holes so you can remove the paper easily.

And of course it is a bundle with a fun 10 piece stamp set.  I am excited to share that this bundle will be my Stamp of the Month Kit next month, so stay tune.

#quickdragonflycard #lindabauwin

 This is the card I show you in the video using the Emerald Envy for my main color.  I accented with the In Color Enamel Dots.  Have you given these a try yet?  They are so easy to work with and with the different shapes it just gives some fun detail to your card.

#dragonflythinlits #lindabauwin

This card uses the same technique but this time highlighted with Gold Foil Paper and it look more elegant.  And for the extra bling I added some Gold Sequin Trim

Every time you change the color or the accents you get a totally different look to your card.  Hope you give it a try and share what you come up with.

Now time to check out the video.

Card Share From My Rochester, New York Event

#liftmeupbundle #lindabauwin

Wanted to share a fun card we did at the event I held in Rochester, New York  last weekend.    Jodie and I had so much fun stamping with the 50 wonderful ladies on Saturday.  I thought it would be fun to share some of the cards we made over the coming days.

This card uses the Sunburst Thinlit from the main Stampin' Up Catalog for the background.  The main focus of course is the Hot Air Balloon.

Last April Jodie and I took a ride in a Hot Air Balloon over Salt Lake City.  Something that had been on my bucket list, but I guess I never knew how popular hot air balloons are.  Because this is one of the fastest selling bundles for me in the Occasions Catalog.

It has a fun stamp set called Lift Me Up, with sixteen rubber stamps and matching Framelits Set called Up & Away that has 15 different dies.  As you can tell by the picture some of the dies are different inserts to be placed behind the main balloon.  This allows you to make your balloon very colorful.  Just a really fun set to play with.  Of course there is a bundle that allows you to save 10% when you buy the stamp and dies together.

When you purchase the bundle you are very close to a Free Sale-a-Bration Item.

Twisted Pop-Up Card Video

#twistedpopup #lindabauwin inside

Why did I wait so long to do this creative fold?  Because I felt it was too difficult.  Boy was I wrong.  Once you get the basics down it is an easy creative fold as you will see by the video below.

#twistedpopup #creativefold #lindabauwin

I started with a piece of Smoky Slate that measured 4 1/4" x 11" and it's important to decorate the front first.  I used the beautiful Lift Me Up Bundle.  This bundle matches the Carried Away Designer Series Paper which is a free item with a $50 order until March 31, or while supplies last, during Sale-a-Bration.

To make the pop-up part of the card you need a piece of card stock that measures 3" x 8".  You will score down the center on both ides at 4" on the long side and 1 1/2" on the short side.  Mark at the 2 1/2" from each corner with a pencil, on the top and bottom edge of card stock.

You will score an "X" from mark to mark.  The center of the "X" should match the center of the card stock where the other score lines intersect.  Watch the video as it will help you, this is what scared me, but it is very simple.  Just remember to burnish your score line well.  You will mark 2 1/8" in the center fold of your card and that is where this pop-up goes.

To cover up Pop-up cut to piece of designer series paper that measure 4" x 5 1/4".  Mark at the 2" on the short side and 2" down on each side.  You will cut a triangle to fit inside the card and cover up the center.

The focus piece is 3 3/4" x 11" score in center at 5 1/2" and at 2 3/4" from each end.  This will fold like a "W".  You need 4-2 1/2" x 3 1/2" panels for the focus piece.

To assemble the card, center the booklet at the top of the open card, ends upward just inside the edge, with the back page facing up.  Apply Adhesive to the Pop-Up Mechanism, as show in the video.

Fun Shares From My Weekend

#jodiedaniels #lindabauwin

Had to share some of the fun Jodie and I had this weekend.  We headed to Henrietta, New York to do a stamping day.  I have many members of my Stamp Family in the Rochester, New York Area.  So decided to plan a stamping day with them and Jodie went with me.

So we mixed a little side trip, with work, and went to Niagara Falls, New York for the afternoon.  Was a little windy but for a January day very nice.  And no crowds so even made it better.  So love that I have a job that allows me to travel and share it with Jodie.

#stampday #linda

On Saturday we did a stamp class for 50 ladies from the Rochester, New York area.  What fun!!

One of the most rewarding part of my job is to watch each women as they arrive for an event like this.  They all come in with life written all over their faces.  Each having issues going on in their world.  Doesn't matter, they all have work, family, health issues etc. that they left behind.  As they walked in to a room of over 20 stamp projects, they were in a totally different world.  The smiles, the renewing of old friendships or the meeting of new all made this day extra special.  Which is one of the greatest blessing of stamping.

#stampday #lindabauwin

So thank you ladies for helping made this day so amazing.  Until we meet again, whether it be at my upcoming Stamp Retreat in March or a future event in your area.

I would love for you to join my Stamp Family!!  Want more information?  Check it out, give Stampin' Up! a Test Drive.

Got To Love Red, White, & Black Cards

#valentinescard #lindabauwin

Check out this love card, not necessary a Valentine's Day card but it could be.  I love the looks of white, black and red today.  

This card uses the Bloomin' Heart Thinlit Die that you do need to use the Precision Plate and the Big Shot Brush with it because it is so detailed.  I also used the arrow from the Love Notes Framelit Dies that is part of the Sealed with Love Bundle.

The Sealed with Love Bundle is the Stamp of the Month Kit that I released this month.  I love the 5 cards in this kit.  If you have not checked out the details you need to do so here.  This whole Stamp of the Month Kit is done in the whites, reds, and blacks.
