In Color Shaker Double Fold Card

#shakerdoublefoldcard #creativefold #lindabauwin

Check out the beautiful New In Colors in this Double Fold Shaker Card.  As I told you in Friday's Video I would take the shaker I showed you how to make, and make it in to a creative fold card.  Love it so beautiful.

I used the Sweet Sugarplum Card Stock that measured 5 1/2" x 6 1/2" and scored it at the 4 1/4" mark.  The Flirty Flamingo Card Stock measured 5 1/2" x 8" and it was scored at 4".  I used a piece of the stunning Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack that measured 1 3/4" x 5 1/4".

The Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack is 6" x 6" and you get 48 sheets, 4 each of 12 double-sided designs.  That is a lot of paper to play with.  Below is the Shaker Card Open.

Don't forget today is the last day to receive my Exclusive In Color Embossed Sample with a qualifying $30 Online Order.  All the details are here.  Tomorrow is when we can start ordering out of the new catalog.

More Stampin' Up! In Color Sneak Peeks

Take a look at the beautiful color in this card.  It features the New In Color Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo.  Just so bold and bright.


The card was created for my Product Challenge for my TEAM this month by Donna Payerle from Sycamore Hills, OH.  Donna used the Festive Flower Punch to create the flower.  It's also creative fold.  The creative fold is called a corner fold.  So love that fold.  

I am going to post a video I did on this fold, in case you have never done it before.  It is a very impressive card fold.


Here is another creative fold card.  It was done by Heather Johnson of Kingsville, Ohio.  So love this tri-fold card.  I will do a video on this fold in the coming weeks so stay tune.  Heather used retiring items on her card.  First the Bitty Banners Framelits.  These are great framelits for little words.  She also the Hostess Set "Happy Birthday, Everyone".  Like I said it is a Hostess Set that will retire with this catalog.  You still have time to get with a $150 order before it is gone.

Sneak Peek More New Stampin' Up! Product

#easyshakercard #sneakpeeksu #lindabauwin

Today's video is a Sneak Peek at the New Layering Squares Framelits.  You get a total of 19 square and square scallop framelits with this collect of framelits.  And they work great with our New Foam Adhesive Strips.  These strips are an 1/8" x 9" but a total of 10 yards per pack.

Both of these products are great for making shaker cards.  In the new catalog there are also layering circles, ovals and hearts making shaker cards so easy to make.  We have always carried the window sheets so a perfect match.

I also show off the new Sprinkles Punch.  I keep calling this punch confetti punch, but you will know what I mean.

You need to watch the video as I give you a tip on how to keep your shaker parts from clinging to the window sheet or to the edge of your foam strips.

In the video, I could not remember the birthday stamp I was using and I told you I would post it here it is called the Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set.


Would you like an Exclusive Embossed In Color Sampler?  That would be a total of 35 embossed pieces of In Color Card Stock embossed with all 7 New Embossing Folders from the New 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! Catalog.

All you need to do is place an order in my Online Store from now until midnight on May 31 of $30 or more using Hostess Code UR2EPEMT.  Make sure you do not click no contact, so that I can see your information to send you this Exclusive Sampler.

Countdown To The New Stampin Up! Catalog

So excited in less than a week we will be ordering out of the new Stampin' Up! Catalog.  Those of you that have ordered from me in the last 6 months $50 or more have or will have shortly the new catalog.  Don't fall in either of these groups but would like a catalog?  Let me know and I will get you one.

 A few weeks ago I did a product challenge with the members of my stamp family.  I sent them some of the New Stampin' Up! Designers Series Paper, a sampling of the New In Colors and Thick Baker's Twine'  They needed to take some of that product and make a full six card and send it to me.  The winners got all the finished cards.  Their creativity was over the top.

So for the next week I will be sharing some of the entries.  I always learn so much from these gals.  And this time it was the creative ways to use the Thick Baker's Twine.

#team #lynnmarchinchin #lindabauwin

This card was done by Lynne Marchinchin from Willowick, Ohio.  Check out the grass.  It is the Baker's Twine.  Love how she took the Designer Series Paper to create the interesting curves.

#sneakpeeksu #newsu #lindabauwin

Check out how Michele Casto from Twinsburg, Ohio used the Baker's Twin for the inside of her flower.  She also did a creative fold that I will have to do a video on.  Too clever. 

Receive $35 more Hostess Rewards in the month of June with qualifying orders.

Double Fold Card

#doublefoldcard #creativefoldcard #lindabauwin

Time for another Creative Fold and today's video.  It is a double fold card or a double flap card.  Whatever you want to call this fold, it is a fun easy card to make.  And as you will see in the video, even when you score it at the wrong spot it still works.

The original card was done in Elegant Eggplant and measured 5 1/2" x 6 1/4" and scored along the 6 1/4" side at 4 1/4".  The flap on this part of the card was run through the Big Shot with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder.

The Old Olive Card Stock measured 5 1/2" x 8" and score at the 4".  The two Always Artichoke Card Stock measure 3" x 3 1/2" and the Very Vanilla measure 2 3/4" x 3 1/4".

I used the Number of Years Bundle which has a 29 piece stamp set and 11 framelits in it's bundle for only $49.25.  This is a 15% savings over purchasing these items separately.  Remember this bundle will not be available at this price in the new catalog, so why not purchase it now at the sale price.
