Advent Tree

Advent Tree Box_Linda Bauwin

Today's What's Up With Stampin' Up! Video, I will show you how I make this adorable Advent Tree with new SU! Product.

Watch for details!!!

This is going to become a Stamp of the Month Kit.

Don't want to purchase the set, but want to make this adorable Advent Tree and live near Jefferson, OH, no problem.

I am featuring this Advent Tree as a class in November on a Wednesday and Saturday.  Hope you can join us.

The 25 Days stamp set is a photopolymer set making it very easy to see where you are stamp.

With Stampin' Up! Punches it is even easier to decorate these adorable Tiny Treat Boxes.  The Under the Tree Specialty Designer Series Paper matches the kraft boxes so well.

If you click on the product links below you will be taken directly to my Online Store where you can purchase these item.

Today is the last day to join my stamp family and get the 6 packs of designer paper, along with 6 of my stamp of the month kits, which will include this tutorial.  Click for all the details.


Reserve Masking Technique


In today's WOW Stamping Moment Video I am going to show you how to do reserve masking. 

When you mask an image that you have stamped it gives your project a 3-D look.  

I hope you watched my Creative Fold Video from Tuesday with my Window Easel Card.

This card has depth to it because of the double masking, that you will learn in this video.

This card is also part of my White Christmas Stamp of the Month Kit this month.  Each Stamp of the Month Kit has a card with a creative fold.

Tomorrow is the last day you have the chance to get Free Six Stamp of the Month Kits Tutorials, just by becoming a member of my Stamp Family.  

It is also the last day of Stampin' Up!'s Special to get 6 packs of Designer Series Paper.

Don't want you to miss out on this great opportunity.

Window Easel Card

Window Easel Card_Linda Bauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video was inspired by a card I got in Pat Ertman's Holiday Card Swap.  It was created by Brenda Anderson, a fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

I used the White Christmas Stamp Set for my Window Easel Card.  This is one of this month Stamp of the Month Kits.

You can purchase the kit with stamp set and tutorial, or you can get the tutorial along with 5 other kit tutorial free.  Just join my stamp family.  You will also get 6 packs of Designer Paper from Stampin' Up!

This offer ends October 31,2014.

This creative easel fold card features the Window Frames Collections Dies.  So love the way Brenda created the back of the easel to have a different cut.  Very clever.

Thanks for the inspiration Brenda.  This is why it is so great being part of Stampin' Up!, as there is a lot of sharing among demonstrators.

Check back on Thursday as I sharing my tips on masking.

Lots of creativity out there.

Stamping the Weekend Away on my Retreat

Camp judson

My bags are packed once again, as I am headed for Camp Judson in North Springfield, PA to meet up with a group of stampers for the weekend.

All because of "rubber and ink"!

I have so many projects planned for them and a fun new game where they have a chance to earn LOTS of stamping supplies.

These weekend retreats are a lot of work.  But I so love the friendships that are made.  Some ladies come back each year, and others are new, but it is guaranteed they will all leave with renewed and new friendships.

I will be sharing some of the projects they will be doing over the coming weeks.

I am sure those that are at the retreat this weekend, if they don't have this bundle, they will have it on their wish list.

Stamp Blessings


Jay & I were so blessed this past weekend, as we spent four beautiful days, in Maine.  And as I love to say "all because of rubber and ink".

Why do I love to say that?  That is because we would have never met the beautiful people we went to stay with, if it were not for "rubber and ink".


Steve & Ruth Synder opened their lovely home to us, where we shared so many laughs.  And as you can see from Jay's bib, we also ate LOTS of lobster.

I could have never dreamed I would have as many friends as I do across the US and Canada, if it were not for "rubber & ink".

The friendship I have built over the 17+ years is totally amazing.

You know the opportunity is there for you to join this incredible family.
