Time For Creative Fold Video

#doublezfoldcard #lindabauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video is a Double Z Fold Card, featuring the Sitting Here Stamp Set.  Z Fold Cards seem to be so popular right now and they can take several different twists.  I call this a Double Z, but that is what I called the card below that I did at my Recent Stamp Retreat.  I think maybe it should be called a Triple Z Fold,  as there are 3 Z's in that card.

#triplezfold #lindabauwin

What do you think?  Do you see the three z's?  You have the card and the two Z's to form the Fence.  This card uses the popular Thoughtful Branches Bundle that is only available until August 31 or while supplies last.  

Do you have your Thoughtful Branches Bundle yet?  If you order in my Online Store, and use Hostess Code YZ3AH4NA, I will send you a tutorial of a card box and cards.  The card above also uses the Faux Illusion Technique that I shared in a video post here.

The sizes of card stock I used to create the Z Fold Card from the video are as follows

  • 4 1/4" x 11" Sahara Sand Card Stock Scored at 5 1/2" x 2 3/4"
  • 4" x 5 1/4" Black Card Stock
  • 2 pieces of 2 1/2" x 5 1/4" Black Card Stock
  • 2 pieces of Soft Sky Card Stock 2 1/2" x 5"
  • 1" x 11" Garden Green Card Stock Scored at 5 1/2" and 2 3/4"
  • 1/2" x 10" Soft Sky Card Stock Scored at 2 3/4" x 5 1/2"  Watch the video to see why this piece is an inch shorter

Retreat Highlights

#stampretreat #lindabauwin

What an amazing Stamp Retreat this past weekend.  Let's just say Mother Nature has given us  a lot of different weather over that last 10 years, but this weekend was definitely the hottest.  But that didn't stop these ladies from stamping the weekend away.

There were thirty-six women at the retreat and four states were represented.  Those coming the furthest where from Illinois.    Every year we have a few newcomers.   They are always so shocked at all they get for their $185.  From home cooked meals to having all their projects designed for them.

We have door prizes, play bingo and of course there is the name tag competition.  I wanted to share the winners from this camp.  

Kim Baker from Hennepin, Il

#nametag #linabauwin

Ace Hill from Jefferson, Oh check out those cattails.  OMG have no idea how she wore this name tag it was heavy.

#AceNameTag #lindabauwin

And then there was Holly Hayes who is also from Jefferson, OH.  And Holly's name tag was so fitting.


Would you like to join me in my last Stamp Retreat of the year?  Well it will the weekend of October 28-31 which is one of the prettiest times of the year to be on the shores of Lake Erie.  

Registrations for my customers opens on September 1st and will open to demonstrators on September 16, if there is still opening.  Don't delay.  This is my Christmas Retreat and we will be make things using products from Stampin' Up!'s New Holiday Catalog.

Creative Inking Blog Hop Peeking Into the Holidays

Peeking into the Holidays is the best this year with the New Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

#holidaycatalog #lindabauwin

Have you checked it out?  OMG so many bundles and accessories.  My card share for this hop uses the beautiful Copper Foil Sheets.  These sheets go so well with our Copper Embossing Powder from our Annual Catalog.

I used the Star of Light Bundle.  It has 21 Photopolymer Stamps and 7 Thinlit Dies in the bundle.  And the words in this set are so beautiful, so fitting for the Christmas Season.

#peekingintotheholidays #lindabauwin

Check out the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder I used on the Copper Sheet. It so different from any type of embossing folder I have ever used.  The detail it gives makes the Copper Sheet look a cable knit sweater.  It is such a thick folder you will use one less cutting mat. That tells you how heavy it is.

What 's is favorite bundle in the Holiday Catalog?  I am sure after this Peeking into the Holidays Hop you will have may new must haves out of the Holiday Catalog.

You do know which is the BEST bundle for your value don't you?  It is the starter kit.  For just $99 with free shipping you can choose up to $125 worth of product of your choice. The best part is that product can be out of the Holiday Catalog.  You won't have to wait unti September.  But the bundle keeps on giving, as the rest of your "Must Haves" from the catalog will be at a minimum 20% discount.

Shaker Card Video With Jar of Love Bundle

#jaroflove #lindabauwin

Today's video features the Jar of Love Bundle as a shaker card.  This bundle has so many great uses. And if you have placed an order recently with me, you should have gotten the New Holiday Catalog in your mailbox.  Did you check out the two additional stamp sets to use with these Everyday Jar Framelit Dies?  Too cute.

Isn't the Holiday Catalog totally amazing?  Did you put at least $100 on your wish list?  I know a funny question!  As it is not hard to spend a $100 at all.  

Well if this is you, why not sign up as a demonstrator?  You can order right now out of that Holiday Catalog, and your first order you can select $125 of product for just $99 with free shipping.  And then the rest of your wish list you can get at a 20% discount.

Questions?  I am here to answer them.  Or start saving immediately and JOIN NOW.

Didn't get the Holiday Catalog?  Don't have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator?  Let me know and I will get you a copy sent out.

Don't you just love the Flirty Flamingo Card Stock with the Basic Black on the shaker card today?  It just is so stunning I think.

Take the time to watch the video and see how the Jar of Love Bundle makes the perfect stamp set to make shaker cards.  I am so grateful Stampin' Up! has put the Foam Adhesive Strips in the catalog.  To make shaker cards a breeze to make.


Time for Another Creative Fold Video

#doulezfoldcard #fullcard #lindabauwin

Today's video is another creative fold card.  Did you know I have 100's of creative fold videos on my YouTube Channel?  I have been on YouTube since 2009.  WOW that amazes me.  Creative folds were always my main video, even when I was only doing one video a week.   So go check them out.  

Today's creative fold is a Z fold Card.  When you say Z fold it can be several different types of creative folds.  This is what I call a full Z Fold Card as it looks just like a full card.

You start out with a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2' card base and score it at 2 1/8" x 4 1/4", out of Rich Razzleberry Card Stock.  I used two piece of Tip Top Taupe that measure 4" X 5 1/4'.  One piece goes on the inside of the card the other on the front.

On the front, I used the 5/8" Mini Striped Tip Top Taupe Ribbon, and the 5/8" Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon.  And adhered this to the left of the card front.

I used a piece of the beautiful Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper that measures 2 3/4" x 4 3/4" for an accent.  Then I used a piece of Rich Razzleberry that measures 3" x 5" and layered a piece of Whisper White on top that measures 2 3/4" x 2 3/4".

I stamped in Rich Razzleberry the words Thanks Kindly from the One Big Meaning Stamp Set. I cut out three small flowers from the Blooms and Bliss Designer Paper and added the 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Shapes for Accents.

Need another reason to purchase Thoughtful Branches Bundle

#halloweenthoughtfulbranches #lindabauwin

The Thoughtful Branches is one amazing bundle of products.  Have you got your bundle yet?  I would not wait much longer.  As this bundle is available until August 31, or while supplies last.

Over the last several weeks I have showed you several different ways you can use this bundle, but today's card is so different.

I used the Faux Illusion Technique that I shared in a video and blog post.  But check out that pumpkin.  OMG how cute is that.

It is hard to see in the picture, but I stamped the leaves from the stamp set, in Pumpkin Pie on to the Pumpkin Pie Card Stock and then cut it out. For the stem of the pumpkin I stamped  the tree trunk and cut it out with the long leave framelit from the hydrangea.  The leaves could have been from this set, but are from the May Flowers Framelits.

I have to confess.  I would have used the leaf from this bundle, as there is a stamp and a framelit BUT I couldn't find it in my huge mess of a stamp room.  Does this ever happen to you?  Well I am sure my mess tops yours, I have everything all over for my retreat this weekend and I am lucky to find a place to stamp.

If you have not got this bundle reminder if you purchase it from me in my Online Store and used Hostess Code YZ3AH4NA you will receive  the tutorial for the card box below.
