This Will Make You Smile

This sure brought a smile to my face.  As demonstrators, we have a Facebook Page carried Demonstrator Planning Place.  We share our creations with other demonstrators, so they can be inspired.  

Well Mindy Schaus from Salt Lake City, Utah shared what she was up to with my "Half Full" Stamp Set.  It looks like she was working on some swap cards, that is when we make several of the same cards and swap with other demonstrators.

Well Mindy has some amazing cutting skills. but WOW look at Mindy's coloring skills.  I so love it.   I could not stop laughing as this is something I could easily do with or without wine.

Masculine Card Using Carols of Christmas Bundle

#masculinecard #carolsofchristmas #lindabauwin

Today's video is a quick card showing you that the Carols of Christmas Bundle is not just for Christmas.  I made this adorable Masculine Birthday Card using the framelits to make a masking.  Then just sponge over the masking to make the background.  How simple is that.

The verse comes from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set.

The sizes of card stock that I used where.

  • 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Whisper White Card Stock to Make the masking with.
  • 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Whisper White Card Stock to form the card base by scoring at the 4 1/4" mark along the 8 1/2" side
  • 4" x 5 1/4" Tranquil Tide Card Stock
  • 3 3/4" x 5" Whisper White Card Stock

Now sit back and enjoy the other tips I give you in the video.


Don't forget there is still time to get my 10 card Exclusive PDF with the Carols of Christmas Bundle for Online Orders of $30 or more when you use the Hostess Code FAKX6AU2.  This will end at the end of the month so you don't want to be left out.

Gerber Daisy Tri-Fold Card Video

If you joined my on Friday you seen how I made this adorable Gerber Daisy with the Daisy Punch.  Well today I am going to use that Daisy on the front of my Tri-Fold Card.

#gerberdaisy #daisypunch #lindabauwin

If you missed the video on this beautiful daisy you can check it out here.

#gerbderdaisy #trifold #lindabauwin

Here is that Daisy on the front of my Tri-Fold Card Today. I used the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies to add an Early Espresso Background to the Gerber Daisy.  Makes it pop right off the card.  Here is the card opened.

#trifoldcard #lindabauwin

I started with a piece of Calypso Coral Card Stock that measured 5 1/2" x 11".  I scored it at the 1 1/4", 4" and 6 3/4" marks.  this is what formed the tri-fold.

I used three pieces of the beautiful Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  They measured:

  • 1" x 5 1/4"
  • 2 1/2" x 5 1/4"
  • 4" x 5 1/4"

I also used two pieces of Whisper White Card Stock and they measured:

  • 1" x 5 1/4"
  • 2 1/2" x 5 1/4"

For the inside I used Calypso Coral Classic Ink to stamp the greetings which came from the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set.

The Daisy Punch and the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper have countless ways they can used them.  Have you purchased your bundle yet?

Splash of Watercolor

When I think of watcoloring I think of coloring between a line-art image.  But watercoloring can just be a splash of color behind a stamped image.

Today's examples of watercoloring come from my TEAM Challenge last month, and were created by Mary Ann Rossiter of Auburn Township, Ohio. 

#waterbackgrounds #lindabauwin

This first card Mary Ann submitted she used watercolor paper and watercolored strips of color.  Then took the Black Stampin' Writer Marker and built a frame around the color.  It's hard to see but she has some of the 1/4" Copper Trim behind the black butterfly that was made with the Move Me Thinlits.  Then just  adding a couple sequins to finish the card.

#watercoloring #lindabauwin

This card is my favorite with the Splash of watercoloring behind the birthday greeting.  This is done on regular Whisper White Card Stock.

So many little accents with the Stitched Shapes Framelits, to the Gold Foil Eclectic Layers Thinlits and Gold Sequins.

When you are thinking about watercoloring whether it is for lines images or to create images like Mary Ann did, the Aqua Painter and/or Blender Pens are must have tools.

New Tip Using Daisy Punch

#daisypunch #lindabauwin

Have you wondered why this Daisy Punch has been on back order so many times?

Well as you will see in today's quick video it is because there are so many different looks you can get from it.

After all it is the #1 selling punch in the past 5 years with Stampin' Up!

Do you have it in your stamp room yet?  If not you need to order it now.

When you order the Daisy Punch at the same as the Daisy Delight Stamp Set in a Bundle, you get a 10% discount.

In day's video I use the Calypso Coral Card Stock and Classic Ink and the Aqua Painter to give a new look to my petals.  By using the bone folder I curl the edges of the daisy to give them a little pop.

I then punched Early Espresso Card Stock with the 3/4" and the 1" Circle Punches to make a center to my daisy to make it look like a Gerber Daisy.

Check out the video for some more fun techniques.  And don't forget to place that order to get the Daisy Delight Bundle into your stamp room.
