Sunset Galaxy Sky Stamping Technique

#sunsetgalaxyskytechnique #lindabauwin

Today's Video features a Stamping Technique called Sunset Galaxy Sky Technique.  This technique was shared during my TEAM Technique Challenge by a member of my Stamp Family Mary Ann Rossiter.

Mary Ann was one of the winners of my TEAM Challenge and she received a Gift Certificate, which she is choosing to hold on to until the release of the New Catalog, next Thursday June 1st.

Here is the card that I showcased in today's video.  I followed Mary Ann's directions but I chose to use the following colors when I sponged with the daubers.

As you will see in the video, burnishing these colors into Whisper White Card Stock gives the appearance of the colors in a sunset.  Then I used the Aqua Painter to spatter some water.  Then I followed that step by stamping with the Timeless Textures Stamp Set with the White Craft Stampin' Ink.

This is such a stunning look.  I used the oldest stamp set I had to stamp the trees, Lovely as a Tree.   This stamp set has been around long than me.  It is still a go to stamp set.  Do you have it in your collection?

Now watch the video for more tips.  Make sure you join my as I start the countdown to the new catalog as I showcase some of the fun new products with video.

Look What I Got

#saradouglas #lindabauwin

I am sure you are thinking what???  It's a card done with the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set and the Tree Builder Punch, what's so exciting about that.  Maybe this clue will help.

#makeacardsendacard #lindabauwin

#saradouglasceosu #lindabauwin

It came from the CEO of Stampin' Up! Sara Douglass.  Now you see the excitement?  

On May 4th Sara did a Facebook Live and talked about her plan to make cards and send them to women who have impacted her life for good during the month of May. She stated, it's always a good time to#MakeACardSendACard right?  It's also #arthritisawarenessmonth which is something Shelli, Sara's Mom is struggling with, so for her it's a double-whammy!   She invited others to join her and hashtag your cards #MakeACardSendACard so we can all see them. ❤️

#makeacardsendacard @asarathing #lindabauwin

Well I was honored to not only get a card but a call from Sara to Congratulate me on my 1.1 Million Dollars in Career Sales.

Sara and I talked for about an hour about my business, and concerns.  Sara listen to my feedback and said she appreciated my being open and honest about my concerns.  The phone call met a lot but the card OVER THE TOP, it brought a tear to think Sara would take the time to send me a card and say she values me.

When is the last time you sent a card?  We are all good at making them. is the sending the card that makes the difference.  So I challenge you today to #makeacardsendacard today.  And make someone's day like Sara did mine.  Thanks Sara.


Center Opening Card

Today's Creative Fold Video features a Center Opening Card using the beautiful Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper.  So love the look of the black with the gold.  

#centeropening #easternpalace #lindabauwin

I used the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers that come in the Suite Bundle.  I have never used stickers on a card before the Eastern Palace Suite Bundle.  And I will have to say I really like it, gives the card a new look.  Reminder only until May 31 can you get this product at a 10% discount.  It will be in the new catalog but not as a bundle.

The Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper has heavy weight paper that has gold trim.  It really pairs nicely with the Gold Glimmer Paper. I used the Layering Circles to cut the Gold Glimmer Out.

This card is one of those simpler creative fold cards.  So if you have never tried a Creative Fold Card, this would be a great place to start.

The sizes of card stock and scoring are as follows, but make sure you check out the video as the scoring and cutting will make more sense.

  • 4 1/4" x 11" Basic Black Card Stock Score at the 5 1/2" mark.  Then along each side it is cut in one inch up to the score line.
  • 2 pieces of Designer Series Paper cut at 3/4" x 5 1/4"
  • 2" x 5 1/4" Whisper White Card Stock for center

Video Showing Bokeh Technique

#stamptechniques #linabauwin

I received this beautiful card in my recent Technique Challenge to demonstrators that are in my Stamp Family.  They were to send me a card using a stamp technique and they got a chance to earn $75, $50 or $25 Stampin' Up! Gift Certificate.

This card done with the Bokeh Technique and was submitted by Joyce Coppens.  Below I have done a video on how the technique is done.  Here is the card I did.  It is not as vibrant as Joyce's.  You get a different look with different colors.

#bokeh #lindabauwin

The sizes of Card Sock I used were:

  • 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Whisper White Card Stock
  • 4" x 5 1/4" Rich Razzleberry Card Stock
  • 3 3/4" x 5" Whisper White.

To do this technique you select a few coordinating colors of ink and sponge or daub on a Whisper White Card Stock and cover it all.

Next you punch out different sizes of circles out of a scrap piece of card stock and you will use this as a stencil

Using the piece of Whisper White Card Stock that you sponged the coordinating colors on, place the scrap piece with circles punched out over top and daub or sponge on Whisper White Craft Ink.

Allow the Whisper White Ink to dry.  This will take awhile since it is a pigment ink.  You may wish to use your heat gun to dry quicker.

Then you will want to stamp over and embellish.

I used Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink to stamp the Birthday Blooms flower, and I added a Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Bee cut out with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies.

Would you like to take part in challenges like this technique challenge?  Would love for you to be part of my Stamp Family.  And right now you could get things from the new catalog in your demonstrator kit? Join Now  Or if you have questions please let me know.

Check Out The Beautiful New In Color

#lemonlimetwist #lindabauwin

OMG I am in love with the New In Color Lemon Lime Twist.  I am usually not a bold color stamper.  I usually go for earthly or soft pastels, but this Lemon Lime Twist is growing on me.  And when you pair it with the Dapper Denim it is simply stunning.

This card is done with the beautiful Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper, The Eastern Medallions Thinlits, Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers and the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set.  

All these items will be available individually in the New Catalog come June, but what are you waiting for?  They are available now at a 10% discount plus additional free product, with the special that is available through the end of May with the Eastern Palace Suite Bundle.

If you missed my post about this Premiere Bundle you can check it out here.

Did you notice how the Gold Vinyl Stickers are used on the flower and around the stamped circle?

Stampin' Up! has never offered a product like the Gold Vinyl Stickers in the past, so was not sure if I would like. really gives your card a different look.

I used the Dapper Denim Classic Ink to stamp.  Don't you think it really looks well with the Lemon Lime Twist?  I really like the two colors together.  Even though I am from the generation that would of never put green and blue together.  Okay that dates me.

So tell me what you think?  Do you like the new In Color?

Don't forget until May 31 you have the opportunity to get 24 sheets of assorted designer series paper with a $30 order in my Online Store with Hostess Code Z36N3C2J.

Soon To Be Gone Bunch of Blossoms Bundle

#bunchofblossomsbundle #lindabauwin

Check out this beautiful card done with the Bunch of Blossoms Bundle that will be retiring in this catalog.

The Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Set which has 26 photopolymer stamps will be in the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog.  So won't the Blossom Builder Punch but not at a discount.  

I think this bundle is one that you could over look how different it is.

#bunchofblossomsbundle #lindabauwin

I have to admit I purchased this bundle and had not used until recently.  As you can see by the sample it is simply lovely.  

I used the Layering Ovals and the Stitched Frame Framelits to highlight the flower.  

Unfortunately the Designer Series Paper I used Falling in Love is already retired.  But you can change it to any designer series paper for a stunning card.  I also used the Lace Doilies that are Very Vanilla on one side and Whisper White on the other.

You do know you have less than a month to get the retiring items from this years catalog?  If you want to take another look at what is retiring you can do so by click here.  And don't forget the Clearance Rack, so many great values there.  Did you know you can get 10 yards of ribbon for as little as $2.40?

And don't forget in you order in my Online Store and use Hostess Code Z36N3C2J this month, I will send you 24 assorted sheets of designer series paper in celebrating of my 20 years with Stampin' Up!
