Sneak Peek Occasions' Catalog Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies

Time to share some more great samples done by my TEAM Members with the Party Animal Suite and the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies.

#carrieburr #lindabauwin

Carrie Burr from Hennepin, Illinois create this card.  I love the way Carrie left some of the polka dots in the balloons.  Give them some dimension.  Have you checked out the beautiful Party Animal Designer Series Paper?  Such beautiful colors.

#jenniferhenry #lindabauwin

Jennifer Henry from Henderson, Nevada created this card for the TEAM Challenge.  Check out the card base.  She did a direct-to-paper inking technique to give some great interest to her card.

#junecreagh #lindabauwin

June Creagh from River Vale, New Jersey created this card.  This is the front of the card.  So love the little Party Animal Embellishment hanging down.  And here is the inside of her card.

#junecreaghinside #lindabauwin

June used the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies as they were made to be used as a pop-up in the inside of her card.  I so love the color in Party Animal suite.

Remember the first day to order out of the New Occasions catalog is Jan. 4th.

BUT DON'T MISS OUT on the bundles in the Holiday Catalog.  They will be gone, along with their savings as a bundle on Jan. 3rd.  Take a second look to make sure you don't miss out.

Winners From Party Animal Suite

#karenburke #lindabauwin

Karen Burke submitted this card for my TEAM Challenge this month.  I few weeks ago I sent members of my Stamp Family the products below.

#teamchallenege #lindabauwin

Each TEAM Member that took part in my challenge created a card for a contest.  Karen was one of the winners selected.  I love how she used the Balloon Pop- Up Thinlit Dies as a Shaker Card.  She used lots of Sequins and Gold Beads that really made the Shaker Pop Out.

#suedean #lindabauwin

Sue Dean  also from the Rochester, New York area was our other TEAM winner.  She too didn't use the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlit Die as a Pop-Up Card.  Just shows you how many different ways you can use this Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits.

Two-Step & Double-Take New Technique

The New Occasions Catalog has some fun new twists on Two-Step and Double-Take Stamping. With the release of the new catalog, you will find a new bundle that features the Celebration Duo Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.  These new embossing folders are great as they create a debossed impression that gives a whole different look to the stamp set Happy Celebrations.

The Happy Celebrations stamp set is the traditional two-step stamping set. I guess it is really a three-step, as there are three coordinating stamps to stamp on top of each other with the "Happy".  But then you add the embossing folder and deboss you may say it becomes a four-step bundle.

Here are some fun cards I designed using this stamping bundle.

#lindabauwin #happycelebrations

Look at the fun stars under the "for you".  This comes from a great Tag Bundle called "That's The Tag".  So love the look of the stars.  But wait there are more fun thinlits in this bundle.  There are flowers and butterflies that add the little extra not just to a tag but to a card too.

#happycelebrations #lindabauwin

This card shows off the fun deboss look the embossing folder gives with this great bundle.  This truly is something we have not seen yet in other catalogs.  So check out the video below for some more great ideas.

Check out the video below for this Two-Step Bundle but check back tomorrow for the Double-Take Technique.



Lift Me Up Bundle Video

Check out this fun new Bundle called Lift Me Up.  It has 16 rubber stamps  featuring Hot Air Balloons and fun uplifting saying to the stamp set with matching Thinlit Dies.  The Thinlit Dies are called Up & Down, but of course you save 10% in you buy the stamp set and thinlit dies together in a bundle.

Check out the video and then one of the many samples I have made from the bundle.

#liftmeup #lindabauwin

Some of the dies for the Hot Air Balloons are detailed, so Stampin' Up! is recommending the use of the Precision Base to help cut out these thinlits.  Some of the other dies are not detailed but our smaller so they are recommending the Magnetic Platform for these thinlits.  Make sure you have these products to help you when you are cutting these dies out.  Love this bundle with the Sunburst Thinlit.  I love the look of this card.  Makes me think of Jodie's and my adventure in the Hot Air Balloon last April during my Million Dollar Incentive Trip.  Some fond memories.


Introducing Stampin' Up!'s Watercolor Pencils Video

So excited that Stampin' Up! will soon be releasing new Watercolor pencils to their collection.  I have had the privilege, because demonstrators can receive new product a month early, to be playing with these pencils.  And I know what you are thinking, but Linda doesn't like to color.  Okay I have to say I am starting to like it.

Look at the card I have created using these pencils?

#suwatercolorpencils #lindabauwin

Not only did I use the water coloring technique I used paper piercing on the dress.  And did you check out the stamp set?  It is called "Beautiful You" and it is among my favorites in the new Occasions Catalog.  Some very nice sayings.

So what do you think?  Not to bad for someone who doesn't like to color huh?  On this card I just used the pencils to color a shading for a background. This technique sure changes the looks of  your card.  

These pencils just may turn me in to an artist, or maybe just a want-to-be artist.  They are  high quality smooth color pencils.  Perfect for water coloring stamped images.  You can use with the Aqua Painter or the Blender Pens.

As you will learn in the video you can use Whisper White Card Stock, or Watercolor Paper to color on, but I am find the Shimmering White Card Stock to be my favorite.  Ca't wait for you to give them a try and tell me which paper you like to color on.

There are thirteen Stampin' Up! Colors in this collection of pencils being released now, but I am sure there are more colors on the horizon.  Check out the video for more great tips on how to use these pencils.
