Sheltering Tree Card

Today's What's Up With Stampin' Up! Video I spotlight the beautiful Sheltering Tree Stamp Set.  This set has many possibilities.  From seasonal cards to masculine it has it all.  That is why I will be featuring it as of my Stamp of the Month Kits for February.  So make sure you check back for the details of this kit.

The layering on the card gives it so much dimension.  It is accomplished simply by stamping and then layering.

I used the Pink Pirouette as my card base 5 1/2" x 8 1/2.  Stamped on a piece of Whisper White that measured 2" x 5" and stamped everything accept the leaves.  By adding a little adhesive to the Whisper White Card Stock to my card base and stamping the leaves, it gives the look that the tree is three dimensional.  I then used a piece of Strawberry Slush Card Stock to layer on the Whisper White.  

Simply Stunning


WOW Saving Card Stock

Lotus Blossom_Sale-a-Bration_Linda Bauwin

Today's WOW Stamping Moment Video gives you a quick tip on how to save card stock and postage.  As stampers we all love to layer, in fact the more layers the better right?

Well with the layers come expense of card stock and additional postage. This great tip helps with both of these problems.  You can also use this tip when using your punches.  No more waste.

Did you see all my color combinations with this beautiful Lotus Blossom that I did on a video a few weeks ago?  If not you can check it out here.

WOW Dryer Sheet and Thinlits

Dryer Sheet Thinlit, Butterfly Thinnlit_Linda Bauwin

Today's WOW Stamping Moment Video takes yet another look at my favorite thinlits dies the Butterflies.  As you can see, this butterfly has lots of details.  And in the past I shyed away from using a thinlit with so much detail.  It was just too hard to get all the pieces to cut and to get them out.

In past videos, I showed you by using wax paper it really helped with getting the little pieces to come out.  But now with the use of a fabric sheet, it helps so much with keep all the pieces in one place.  Whoever thought of using a dryer is beyond me?

This past weekend, at my TEAM stamp event with everyone using the dryer sheets to cut out the butterflies, it smelled so clean and fresh.  Wish my laundry room always smelled that clean.  Oh maybe if I did less stamping and laundry on more regular bases that would happen.  Guilty.
