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.

What does 160 cards look like?

2017-01-06 11.41.13

So blessed to receive 160 cards in one day.  How you may ask?  Well I took part in seven organized swaps with other demonstrators, a perk of being a demonstrator.  What do I do with that many swaps?  I share them with you.

Jodie and I designed and stamped 160 of our own cards.  Then we sent them to the swap organizer and they swapped with the other demonstrators for us and returned them to us.

I know what you are think, but Linda you have so many of your own cards that you design, why do you need that many other samples?  Well I use them at classes, workshops and special events that I do for displays.  It is the best way to have lots of fun ideas to share.  As we all have are own style of stamping, by being in a swap it allows you to see other styles.

Yes I know about Pinterest, in fact I have many boards on Pinterest, but I am out school.  I want to hold the cards in my hands.

Want to see some of these beautiful cards, make sure you check them out in person at one of my events.   Check out those events on my calendar.

Check out today's Peek-a-Boo Flip Video

You are going to love this creative fold card, that was inspired from Julie Davison.  I have been wanting to do this card for months, but thought it would be too hard.  WRONG!!

#peekabooflip #lindabauwin

Here is the card closed.  I used lots of new product from the Occasions Catalog.  First the beautiful new Special Reason Bundle.  Stay tuned as this will be my March Stamp of the Month Kit.   I also used the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder,the Lace Doilies,  and check out those little butterflies.  They come from the Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies.  You are going to be seeing a lot more of those butterflies as I am in love with those framelits.

#peekabooflip #open #lindabauwin

Here is the card open.  On my sample card I used the Delicate Details Stamp Set that is a free item during Sale-a-Bration.  I forgot to use in the video but I added a fun new twist to the video card.

To make this card I used the following pieces of card stock.

  • 8 1/2" x 11" Dapper Denim Card Stock scored at the 5 1/2" and then cut at the 4 1/4" making two A2 cards
  • Take one of the 4 1/4" x 11" pieces and cut at 8 1/4"
  • Take the other one and cut at 5 3/4"
  • 4 1/4" x 8 1/4" Very Vanilla scored at 4 1/4"

That's all you need to create the base of this fun Peek-a-Boo Flip Card.  If you are joining me for my stamp event in the Rochester New York area this weekend you will be making this card.  What fun we are going to have.
