Video New Release - My Million Dollar Stamp Set With A Cool Technique

#halffullfront #lindabauwin

So excited to share my first card done with my Million Dollar Stamp Set "Half Full".  One of the perks of hitting a Million Dollar in Sales is to design your own stamp set.  Well my set was designed over a year ago.  I am happy to announce it will finally be in the Holiday Catalog that will release in September.

During Stampin' Up!'s Incentive in Thailand last week, I had the honored to demonstrator with the set to my peers.  Normally we are not allowed to share new items from the catalog until demonstrators are able to preorder.  But Stampin' Up! gave me permission to share my swap from the trip.

Of course my swap had to be a Creative Fold, and I will share the fold of the card in a later video.  Today's video shows you a cool technique that I used to make the wine glass look half full.  This technique uses the Fine Tip Glue Pen and Classic Ink Refills.  You will find you using this technique for many different uses.

Let me know what you think about the sneak peek of my stamp set and the technique.

I have lots to share about this set in the coming weeks, as it is official released.  Jay and I had talked about the design of this set before he past almost two years ago.  I even have a little remembrance of him within the set.  Will share more when the set is released.

Now set back enjoy the video with the great new technique with the Fine Tip Glue Pen.  Let me know what you think.


Receive $72 more in your Starter Kit will end soon.  What are you waiting for it's the BEST DEAL check it out.

Creative Inking Blog Hop - Two Step Stamping

I am glad you joined us for our Blog Hop Two Step Stamping.  Two Step Stamping is what hooked me on rubber stamping.  It is a great way to get a WOW factor in short time.

#tranquiltulips #lindabauwin

Tranquil Tulips is my favorite two Step Stamp Set in the current catalog.  It has 22 photopolymer stamps that work so well together.

When I Two Step Stamp I always start with the largest image in the lightest color and then stamp the smallest imagine on top in a little darker color.

If you only have one color ink pad it is no problem.  You would take the largest image ink it and then stamp off on a scrap piece of paper.  Then you will stamp on your car stock, this will give you a lighter shade.  Next take the image to stamp on top ink full strength on top of the larger lighter image.  Doesn't get easier then that.

I am so excited to report, that in the Holiday Catalog that will be released in September, there are so many Two Step Stamping Sets.

Check out this card done with the Tranquil Tulips

#twostepstamping #lindabauwin

I love the soft look in this card using a monochromatic color scheme.  The next card is bold and uses two different colors of ink to create a stunning look.

#twostepstamping #tranquiltulips #lindabauwin

The Tranquil Tulips is a Hostess Rewards Set meaning you must use Hostess Rewards to get this set.  It is only $10 with your Hostess Rewards so just by collecting $150 in orders, or purchase that much yourself you could have this great Two Step Stamping Set.

I shared this video a while ago using the same Tranquil Tulips Set.

You will want to check back tomorrow as I release My Million Dollar Stamp Set "Half Full" that will be in the Holiday Catalog along with a cool Stamping Technique.

Now it's time to head over to Sue Lehrer's Blog and see what she has created for us.

Shares From An Amazing Trip

#thailandtrip #lindabauwin

Have you ever returned from a trip and felt like your brain didn't return with you?  Well that is how I am feeling today.  I am afraid it will last for awhile this time.  Jodie and I left Thailand at 8 a.m. our time on Sunday, but never arrive to my house until Tuesday morning at 2 a.m.   That's 42 hours of travel with 21 hours of that being in the air.

It was a trip of a life time.  We first traveled to Beijing, China were we explored the city, plus went out to the Great Wall.  Jodie comment was that "Great" is not a big enough word for this wall.  She is so right, and to think about how long ago it was build is so amazing.

#chinagreatwall #lindabauwin

Even though the China part of our trip was not the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip, it was because of Stampin' Up!'s Thailand Incentive Trip that got us to see one of the Great Wonders of The World.

#china #lindabauwin

It is pretty amazing to think my job took me half-way around the world.  The cool part is that we didn't travel east or west but north.  That is right we flew over the north pole.

I am excited to share more about the Stampin' Up! part of the trip in the coming days.

Do you love to travel?   You know when I signed up to be a demonstrator travelling to China, or Thailand for that matter, was never in my widest dreams.  But Stampin' Up! has sure changed all that.

In 2018 I am looking for to another cruise to Alaska, which will be the third time STampin' Up! has taken me to Alaska.  But my eyes are surely on the new trip.  I will be working hard to achieve the Incentive Trip for 2019 which will be another first for me.

 So blessed.

Double Gate Fold Card

#kimbaker #lindabauwin

This is the card that inspired today's Creative Fold Video.  It was done by Kim Baker from Hennepin, Il.  Check out how she created the adorable pigpen with the Classic Label Punch and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.

Well I needed a 60th birthday card, so I decided to create it in a video and use the Double Gate Fold like Kim did.  Well I started out with the 5 /12" x 11" piece of cards stock, but I started scoring at the 1 3/4" mark instead of the 1 1/4" like Kim did. So I got a gap in my opening, as you will see in the video, but I still made it work.  Here is the card I created.

#creativefoldcard #lindabauwin

It is very easy to create a "special" birthday card with the Large Number Framelits.  I used the Dazzling Details Glimmer Paper which just makes the numbers jump off the Basic Black Card Stock.

Make sure you watch the video to see where I went wrong with this card.

Correct Score lines should be along the 11" side of the 5 1/2" x 11"piece of card stock  You will score at 1 1/4", 3 1/2", 7 3/4" and 9 3/4".  You will mark up along the 5 1/2 sides 2 1/2" and cut at a diagonal to get the Double Gate Opening.

Time Is Ticking Away Don't Be Left Out

Stamp Retreat_Linda Bauwin

Registration for my August Retreat is about to close.  Everyone is invited to attend.  This retreat will be extra special for me, as I will be showcasing my Million Dollar Stamp Set in a grouping of projects called "Half Full".

You will be the first of my downline and customers to stamp and create with this set.  Wish I could tell you more, but I am allowed to tell you it is wine related.  Too much fun playing with this set and can't wait to share with you.

So more about Stamping in the Woods.  No we aren't in the Woods and yes there are bathroom facilities.  Stamping in the Woods got it's name from the camp I first started in which was in the Woods.  Camp Judson is on an open knoll overlooking beautiful Lake Erie.

I plan all the projects for you, and everything is set up in stations, so you work at your own pace.  Depending on your stamping speed, how much you fellowship, and eat I am thinking you will be busy most of the weekend.  

You get all your meals, projects and lodging for only $190.  I say only, as many Stamp Retreat are double that amount if you want to do all the projects.  

I do have an optional Bingo Game that you can play for Stampin' Up! Supplies, there is an additional fee of $25 for that.  

You can send a check to me at 908 Webster Rd., Jefferson, OH  44047 or e-mail and I will tell you how to send your payment through PayPal.  Please include your e-mail on your registration.

If you would like to read more about this retreat you can on my calendar.

Sponged Brayer Background Video

#spongebrayervideo #lindabauwin

In today's video you are going to learn how to sponge brayer this beautiful beach scene.  The Sponge Brayers are the best kept secret in the Stampin' Up! Catalog.   We use to have rubber brayers and I could never get a nice smooth background with them.   The sponge brayers are different and very inexpensive and easy to use.

My video today was inspired by a card I got in a card swap from a dear friend Kim Peck.  Kim's card has much softer colors then my card, showing how versatile these brayers can be.

#kimpeck #lindabauwin

Kim and I both used the same color Classic Ink Pads: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Crushed Curry and Peekaboo Peach but we still got such different looks because of the amount of ink we put on our cards.

I used the High Tide Stamp Set, where Kim used the Colorful Seasons.  We both used the adorable chair from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, which you can get with the Colorful Season as a Bundle.

By using the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and the Wink of Stella you get a beautiful shimmering sun.

Christmas Club Class Share

#deercard #lindabauwin

We are getting geared up for 6 months of Christmas Cards in my Christmas Club Class.  If you missed the post, I hold these Club Classes in my home on a Tuesday and a Saturday each month in Jefferson.  I also take the class to Warren, Ohio on Wednesday night.  If you missed the post about those times you can check it out here.

 This is one of the cards we are doing this month.  I used the Santa' Sleigh Thinlits and the Santa Sleigh Stamp Set.  And then three little strips of the New Christmas Designer Series Paper Be Merry.  Doesn't get simpler then that.  Think that is the secret to doing lots of Christmas Cards is to keep it simple.

Hope you make plans to join in the near future at a Christmas Card Club Class, remember don't have to be a club member to attend.
