Want to see more Club Cards?

#birthdayblast #lindabauwin

Here is another card that Jodie created for club this month.   It was the biggest hit, but yet the simplest.  It used the Birthday Blast Bundle.  Why do we like the cards we do?

Have you ever fell in love with a card and asked yourself, what is it about this card I like?  Is it the color that makes the card stand out?  The embellishments?  The stamp set?  The layout?  The die cuts?  I think if you take a look at your cards in this way, you will be surprised what draws your attention to what card.

For me, this card is all about the color.  I love blue.  Jodie used the Party Animal Designer Series Paper, which has the beautiful Pacific Point for a focus color.  This color is so bright and cheery.

Would you like to join us next month for card club?  You can even if you aren't a member.  We make four cards each month and you can come free if you place a $25 order or just pay $8.  All you need to do is bring your own adhesive.

I hold two club class in my home in Jefferson.  They will be March 21 from 1-6 p.m. you can come anytime during that time.  Or on Saturday March 25 from 10 until noon.

I also hold a club class in Warren, OH that class will be held on Wednesday, March 22 starting at 6 p.m.

Let me know if you would like to attend.


Check Out All The Glimmer

Have you got your free pack of assorted 6" x 6" glimmer paper?  When you place an order of $50 you can get this paper free.  Check out today's video, this card shines.

#glimmerpaper #lindabauwin

I am very impressed with this glimmer paper when you cut it out with the framelits dies.  It cuts clean and crisp, with very little glitter mess.  It is always best, when possible, to cut on the paper side of the glitter paper.

You will see in the video, I used the got-to-have, Stylish Stems Framelits Dies which has a matching stamp set, Special Reason.  This does come as a bundle, and is so different than any framelits we have had in the past.  As you can just cut a negative image of the flower, if you want.

Glimmer paper can be a little tricky to adhere to your projects.  I am finding tat the Tombow Multi-Purpose Glue is becoming my best friend with this paper.  Did you check out the cute little butterfly it came from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.

I used the Lots of Labels layering framelits and the Festive Embossing Folder to create my background for the card.  Are you finding, like me, that is hard to have just a plain card stock background?  You just need to jazz it up a bit.

Time is running out to take advantage of Stampin' Up!'s Ultimate Bundle, the Starter Kit.  Why wouldn't you want to get over $200 worth of product for only $99 with free shipping?  

Did you know by purchasing the kit you will be able to buy any of the retiring items from the annual catalog, plus all the new items in the 2017-2018 Catalog, at a minimum 20% discount.  Need more information? Check it out here.

Dish of Ice Cream?

#cooltreatsbundle #lindabauwin

Yummy this card looks good enough to eat.  Another club card from this week's classes created by Jodie.  Love the look of Cherry Cobbler and Basic Gray Card Stock together for this yummy card.

Check out the cute little spoon using the Silver Foil Paper.  Too cute.  And the Lace Doily just adds class to this card.  Did you notice that these doilies are vanilla on one side but white on the opposite.  So versatile

Jodie used the Cherry Cobbler Marker to highlight the word "cherry" in the verse "You're the Cherry to My Sundae".

Jodie is the cherry to my sundae.  I have so enjoyed her creating this month's club cards for me, as I am working to get all the projects done for the upcoming Stamp Retreat.  And to think she didn't stamp when she first became my assistant.

Speaking of the stamp retreat, there are just a few more openings, and registration will cut off on March 3rd, if we aren't full.  I must keep that date because I need to get your supplies ordered.  Each person attending Retreat, this time, will have $50 of product in their bag.  That doesn't include all the card and project kits cut and ready for you to do the projects.

Cool Treats Sample

I told you a couple days ago that Jodie was helping me with designing, since I am busy designing for my upcoming retreat March 17-19.  So decided to share the cards that she designed for this week's club classes.  Love to see a stamp set in someone else's eyes besides my own.

She used the Cool Treats Stamp Set and Frozen Treats Framelits Dies, which comes in a bundle.  Love how her creative mind worked.  What do you think?

#cooltreats #lindabauwin

She used the Confetti Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the center focus of the card for the banner.  Then she used the ice cream cone for the banner, but inked the individual letters from the "cool" stamp with a black marker to create the letters on the banner.

She also used the framlit from the Up & Away Dies for the banner she stamped the "You're" on.  Love the cheery colors makes me want to go have and ice cream cone.  How about you?

Creative Inking Blog Hop Color My World

So glad you joined us on the Creative Inking Blog Hop this month, with a theme of Color My World.  Those that know me, know that coloring is not my favorite technique.  But I have a lovely coloring technique to share with you called spotlighting.  I even did a video to show you how simply it is to do this technique. 

#spotlightcoloring #lindabauwin

As you will see in the video, I used the Layering Circles Framelits to spotlight just a section of the stamp image.  That way I don't have to color the whole card, but just the section I spotlighted with the circle framelits.

I used the Aqua Painter along with the Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi Ink Pads to color the flower in.  I used both the Clear and the Gold Wink of Stella to highlight the flower.  The flower comes from the You've Got This Stamp Set and the words are from the Butterfly Basic Stamp Set.

I think the Butterfly is a great accent and it is done with Gold Foil Sheet and the Bold Butterfly Thinlits Dies.

 

The sizes of Card Stock for this card are"

Now it's time to head over to see what Diane Evans has created or back to Lori Mueller Blog

As a demonstrator, I was able to order early a pack of this paper early.  Well I like you can't wait until Tuesday, so I can order more, as it is just too beautiful.

I want to share today a couple of the cards that I have made with this paper.  First I want to be conservative with it, so I can use it for many things.

Well I used the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.

#sunshinewishesthinlits #lindabauwin

The neat thing about using this thinlits set is that I used the heart and with one cut I got two different hearts, so I was able to make two different cards for the same  die cut.  How cool is that.  Take a look.

#glimmerpapersaleabrtion #lindabauwin

Here is the first card and below is the second card.  I used the heart that punch out of the first heart.

#saleabrationglimmerpaper #lindabauwin

Get those orders ready so you can order this beautiful Glimmer Pack on Tuesday.

This paper is so beautiful to work with.  And I am just sending out a caution, because Sale-a-Bration may run until March 31, but it clearly states that "Product availability may be limited towards the end of the promotional sales period."  

Don't delay if you don't have the top three from the first catalog get ASAP.  And the Glimmer Paper well all I can say is you will want it too.
