Gold Sequin Card

Gold Sequin Trim_Linda Bauwin

I hope you are joining me from yesterday's WOW Moment Video were I showed you the quick tips on using the Gold Sequin Trim to make the tag above.

Today's in my What's Up With Stampin' Up! Video,  I am taking that adorable tag and making it into the card below.  This card is for members of my Stamp Family this month who have hit milestones.

WOW with Gold Sequin Trim

Gold Sequin Trim

Have you purchased this beautiful Gold Sequin Trim and then wondered what to do with it?  Well today's WOW Stamping Moment Video is going to show you some quick tips in using it.

Gold Sequin Trim_Linda BauwinCheckout this adorable tag using with the One Tag Fits All Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalog and the matching Note Tag Punch.  

I think I need to take a class on photograph, as I have a hard time with getting a good clear picture.  I used gold embossing and this tag is so pretty.

I used my blendabilites and my handheld stapler to attach the Gold Sequin Trim.  But what I show you on the video came to me by accident when making this tag.

It really adds so much to the tag.  You will have to give this tip a try and let me know how much you like it.  And don't forget to check back tomorrow for my What's Up With Stampin' Up! Video, as I use this tag on a card using the Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.

Center Panel Easel Card

Center Panel Easel Card_Linda Bauwin

Today's creative fold video features a Center Panel Easel Card.  Doesn't get much easier than this card for a creative fold.

I started with a piece of Daffodil Delight that measure 5 1/2" x 8 11/2" and scored it at the 4 1/4" mark.  I then placed the card front in to my Stampin' Trimmer at the 1 1/2" mark and cut up to the score line.  I did that on both sides.

In the middle, between the two cut lines, I scored at 2 1/4" to form the easel part of the card.  You need to just adhere the two sides down to the back of your card.

I used the Love is Kind Stamp and inked with the Memento Ink Pad, so that I could color with my Daffodil Delight Blendabilities.   Reminder a $50 order gets you Blendabilities free, but only until March 31, 2015.

I accented this card with the beautiful Blackberry Bliss Card Stock and the Designer Series Paper Painted Blooms

Sizes used were:

  • Blackberry Bliss Card Stock  2 1/4" x 3 1/2", 1/2" x 2 1/4" two pieces 2" x 2 1/4", and two pieces 1 3/8 x 4 1/8"
  • Painted Bloom Designer Paper two pieces 1 1/4" x 3 7/8" and two pieces 1 7/8" x 2 1/8"

Our theme is Color the World with Blendabilities

With blendabilities being free with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration it is very easy to color the world.

When you think of blendabilities you think of coloring, as they blend together so well.

Indescribable Gift Card_Linda Bauwin

I have a video on this card.

But I say "I didn't like to color as a child, and I really don't like to color as an adult."  But there are so many other things you can do with blendabilities.

Like highlighting foil sheets.

There is a video on this technique too.
