Shadow Box Creative Fold Video

#santasleighshadowbow #lindabauwin

I shared this shadow box card with you almost a month ago, when I did my Stamp Retreat.  I promised you a video, and I am finally doing that today.  Sorry it took so long, but time marches by pretty first.

You will start with a piece of card stock that measures 7" x 10 1/4".  You will score along the 10 1/4" side at the 5" and the 5 1/4".  We will be working from the 5" score line, so I recommend not scoring over at the 5 1/4".

Along the 7" sides you will move the card stock in to the 1/2" mark,  You will start scoring at the 1/2" mark to the 6 1/2" mark. Move the card stock now in to the 3/4" mark and Score again starting at the 1/2" mark to the 6 1/2" mark.  You will do the same thing on the opposite side.

On both of the 5" sides you will move the card stock to the 1/2" mark and score from the 1/2" to 4 1/2".  Move in to the 3/4" mark and do the same start scoring at the 1/2" mark and cut to the 4 1/2" mark.  Watch the video on how to measure on the score line.

You will cut an "X" out of the center but not all the way to the points you will finish cutting with scissors, as they keep you from cutting to far.

You will place a piece of black card stock on the back to cover the "X", this pieces measures 3 3/4" x 6".  You will also have a Very Vanilla piece of card stock the same size for the inside of the shadow box.

Watch the video and I think you will find this card is way easier to make then it looks.

Creative Fold is a Post-a-Note Holder

#postanotecover #lindabauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video is a Post-a-Note Holder.  I used the Marque Messages Stamp Set.  I CASE this idea from an easel card I got in a swap.  Unfortunately I didn't have a name on the project to give credit for the inspiration for this project.  So if it was you I say thank you.

The sizes of card stock I used are as follows

  • 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"Early Espresso
  • 4" x 5 1/4" Mint Macron 
  • 3 3/4" x 5" Very Vanilla
  • 3 1/2" x 4 1/2" Early Espresso score at the 1/2"
  • 3 1/4" x 3 3/4"
  • 1" 2 3/8" score at each end at the 1/2" mark.
  • 1" x 11" Early Espresso Score at the 2 7/8", 3 1/4", 7 5/8" & 8"
  • 3/4" x 4 1/4" Mint Macron

I used lots of rhinestones on this project along with the 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Dots.

Check out the video on how fast this cute 3-D project goes together.

Creative Fold Meets Gusset Bag

#bag #lindabauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video is a Gusset Bag instead of a card.  I created this bag for a training for my downline.  The training was to show them you can make so many things with just a stamp, ink and paper.  I think sometimes we get carried away with all the things we use to make a project.   

I started out with a 8 1/2" x 11" piece of heavy Whisper White Card Stock.  I used the Blooms & Wishes Stamp Set along with the New In Colors to create my bag.  I first stamped in a random design.

#bagstamped #lindabauwin

I then scored along the 11" side at 2", 5", 7" and then finally at 10".  Along the 8 1/2" on one side I scored 1 1/2" and on the other side 2".  Check out the video for full details on the stamping and cutting of this bag.

#baginstructions #lindabauwin

I used the beautiful Emerald Envy 3/8" Rouched Ribbon to tie the bag closed.  Have you checked this ribbon out?  It is so different then any ribbon we have carried so far.

A Special Card from Some One Special

#dawngriffiths #lindabauwin #creativefolds

As I shared a couple of days ago, Cindy Baughman and Kim Williams held a very special celebration dinner in honor of my accomplishment at the The Roof Restaurant in Salt Lake City.  So blessed that many of my stamping sisters (& brothers) were there.

Well Dawn and Richard Griffiths were there and they brought me this very special picture frame card.  Isn't it beautiful.  It uses the soon to be retired "Feel Goods" stamp set.  Don't have this stamp set?  Well it has several fun verses that you may want to check out.

The picture really doesn't do it justice.  If you would like to learn how to make this card, Dawn has done a couple videos on it.  

There is a video for the flower that you can view here.  And Dawn did another video for the frame card itself.  So honored to get this card from her and for Richard and her to attend my party.  

Don't forget to get those retiring stamps sets and accessories before they go, list is here.  And if you use Hostess Code FF2EHGWW in my Online Store I will send you a FREE gift.

Creative Fold Tower Card.

  Tower Card Linda Bauwin

Today's creative fold video features a Tower Card using the beautiful Birthday Bouquet Designer Paper.  This paper is so elegant.

A tower card will sit so nice on a shelf.  And the nice thing is it folds flat and mails in a standard envelope.

Front Tower Card Linda Bauwin

You simply start with a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of card stock, I used blushing bride.  And you score at 2", 4", 6", & 8".  That is what forms your tower.

I then cut 4 pieces of Mossy Meadow Card Stock that measured 1 3/4"  x 5 1/4" and then 3 piece of the designer series paper and one whisper white that measured 1 1/2" x 5".  That is all there is to this card.

The accessories I used was the Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack Flower, 2 3/8" Scallop and the 2" Circle Punch.  I accented the flowers with pearls that were colored in with the Wink of Stella.

This card was one of the twenty projects we did this past weekend at my retreat.  Would like to receive all the PDF's and videos on the 3-D projects from my retreat?  Stay tune the end of the week I will tell you how you can get them.

Don't forget you can still get the #imBringingbirthdaysback  stamp free this week with a $50 order. All the details are here.

Bunny Treat Bag

Bunny Treat Bag Linda Bauwin

On Saturday I showcased this adorable Bunny Treat Bag on the Creative Inking Blog Hop.   The cute little bunny was showcased on my Easter Parade of Punches Video I did on Friday.  Today during my Creative Fold Video I am going to show you how easy it is to make this Bunny Treat Bag.

I started with a piece of Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper that measured 4" x 5 7/8".  Along the 5 7/8" side of the paper I scored at 2", 2 3/8", 2 3/4", 4 5/8" 5" and 5 3/8".  Along the 4" I scored at the 1/2".  I then cut out the score lines along the 1/2" score line to form the bottom.

In the video, I show you how to line up your Ornate Tag Topper Punch to punch and cut out the top of the treat bag.  That is all there is to this little bag.  So adorable.  I used Silver 1/8" Ribbon to tie the bag together.  I need to get some thin pink ribbon, like the 1/4" Cotton Ribbon, as I think it would look much better for my next bag.

So thrilled with all the supportive responses so far on my Countdown to be the First Million Dollar Linda with Stampin' Up!  I appreciate all the well wishes and those taking advantage of my specials, as I inch closer to my sales goal.  Don't know how you can earn $100 in FREE Stampin' Up!
