Another Look At Retiring Bundles

#dragonflydreams #lindabauwin

 The Dragonfly Dreams Bundle is a must have bundle.  Now is the time to get before that 10% bundle discount is gone.  There are 1o photopolymer stamps in the stamp set and 5 dies that work so well with the stamps.  

#quickdragonflycard #lindabauwin

This card I shared a few months ago and was a great hit, as you can change it to any color and get a totally different look.  If you would like to see the full post along with a video you can do so here.

I also used this bundle as a Stamp of the Month Kit.  Did you get the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp of the Month Kit?  If you missed getting this kit but would like the PDF place an Online Order of $30 or more using Hostess Code Z36N3C2J and I will send you the PDF for free.  Here is what the cards in the kit looked like. 

Would you like more details on the supplies used for this bundle click here.

Another retiring bundle is the Cool Treats.

#cooltreats #lindabauwin

Not only is this bundle retiring, so isn't the beautiful Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper.  And this paper is on sale with a cool price of only $7.80.  That is for 12 sheets of Designer Series paper that makes the stamp set and framelits so well.

Did you see the cute Creative Fold Card I did on Tuesday using this bundle and paper.  Check it out below.

Time To Take A Closer Look

Have you taken a close look at the savings you will be missing in the new Catalog?  We all know we love savings and I am sure you looked over the retirement list and thought good some of the items on my wish list will still be available so I am good.  Well not necessarily.   If you have any bundles on your wish list, and they are carrying over in the new catalog, you will not get the 10 percent discount unless you order now.

I thought I would share some of my favorite bundles with you in this catalog.

Swirlybird #lindabauwin

I so love the Swirly Bird and have done so many great cards and 3-D projects with it.  Thought I would share a couple.

#swirlyscribbles #lindabauwin

The swirly line makes for a perfect border.  And check out this Creative Fold done with more pieces from that bundle

#jaroflove #lindabauwin

It's Time For Creative Inking Blog Hop Color Challenge

#creativeinkingbloghop

So excited with this month's Creative Inking Blog Hop, as it's a Color Challenge using Pear Pizzazz, Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo.  Such fun spring colors.  And here in Ohio we are so ready for spring.

Thought I would do a Double Fun Fold Card for the Color Challenge, as I love Creative Fold Cards.  I have a video of another card using this same fold if you would like to see it here is the link.

#colorchallenge #lindabauwin

Here is the front of the card I used the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits along with the Fluttering Embossing Folder. The main card base is 5 1/2" x 6 1/4" scored along the 6 1/4" side at 4 1/4".  I ran the top flap through the Fluttering Embossing Folder.

#creativeinkingbloghop #lindabauwin

The inside of the of the first flap measures 5 1/4" x 8 1/2" and is scored at the 4 1/4" mark along the 8 1/2" side.   The verse is from the Window Shopping Stamp Set.  The Very Vanilla piece measures 2 1/2" x 4" and the Pear Pizzazz piece measures 2 3/4" x 4 1/4" this is the same size of the layer on the front of the card.

#colorchallengebloghop

Here is the card fully open, it is so bright an cheery.  The Pear Pizzazz piece of card stock measures 4" x 5" and the Very Vanilla measures 3 3/4" x 4 3/4".

Now it is time to hop on over to Sue Lehrer or hop back to  Lori Mueller.

Creative Fold It's A Flap Card

#flapcard #lindabauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video features a Flap Card.  I used a piece of Dapper Denim that measures 4 1/4" x 8 1/4" and it is scored at the 5 1/2" mark.  The Very Vanilla piece in the inside measures 4" x  5 1/4".

The top flap has another piece of Very Vanilla that measures 2 1/2" x 4" and it is run through the Big Shot with the Fluttering Embossing Folder.  In the video I say this folder is retiring, but it was a Senior Moment as this embossing folder will be in the New 2017-2018 Catalog.

Watch for details in the coming days on how you can get a New Catalog from me.  You MUST reply to have the catalog sent to you so stay tuned.

I used the Timeless Tags Thinlits for the butterflies, this is part of a bundle called That's The Tag, that includes the That's The Tag Stamp Set.  This bundle of product is retiring so act fast if you wish to purchase.

The Layering Ovals and the Stitched Framelits are great for an accent on the flap of this card.  I also used the retiring In Color Enamel Dots to add an adorable accent, and the words from Beautiful You.  Watch the video for more helpful hints.

My Easter Card

#eastermessage #lindabauwin

Wanted to share my Easter Card with you, and to wish you a Blessed Easter Weekend.  I did this card as a Shoe Box Swap last weekend in Richmond Virginia and it was a big hit.

It uses the retiring Easter Message Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalog.  I have had lots of stamps with crosses on them, but nothing as stunning as the cross from the Easter Message Stamp Set.  I also used the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder that is so elegant, and as you guessed it too is retiring.

Behind the cross, the sun rays just highlight the cross so well.  The sun rays come from the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set, and this should come as no surprise, it too is retiring.  The grass is from the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set, which is a surprise, is not retiring.

I used the Elegant Eggplant and the Early Espresso Classic Ink to add color with the Aqua Painter and then finished off my highlighting with the Wink of Stella.

Faux Layering Video

#fauxlayering #lindabauwin

Made this card at a Shoe Box Swap while I was at Stampin' Up!'s OnStage Event in Richmond VA.  So love Shoe Box Swaps as I always learn something knew.  

For those of you that don't know what a Shoe Box Swap is, it is when you design a card, and all the supplies are to fit in a shoe box to make the card.   Every  one taking part in the shoe box makes your card and you make every one else's.

This card was made by a member of my Stamp Family Mary Rodgers from Rochester, NY.  She used the Big on Birthday Stamp Set, with the Floral Boutique and Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper, both of which are retiring.  She also used the Petite Petals Punch and the Project Life Punches they too are retiring, if they aren't gone already.

Mary taught me something new.  I had never used my Stampin' Write Marker to do Faux Layering.  As you see in the video, I have always used a sponge dauber and my ink pad.  But with the Stampin' Write Marker you get a different look.  When Mary did her card she just did a small line, mine is bold and not as uniform, but I love the look

Pop Up Butterfly Card Video

#popupbutterflycard #lindabauwin

Here is the front of the card in today's video.  It uses two of the retiring Stampin' Up! Color Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder. I so love this color combination.  

Have you checked out Stampin' Up!'s Retirement List yet?  Don't delay as the In Colors and accessories always go fastest.

I used the words from the Beautiful You Stamp Set, that is the Occasions Catalog.  I am happy to report this set along, with the Watercolor Wings that I made the butterfly from, will still be available in the New 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog in June.  Along with the Layering Ovals and Stitched Framelits that make layering a breeze.

The inside of the card featured the 2015-2017 In Color Designer Series Paper.  You need to check out the video to see how I got this butterfly to pop up inside the card.

This technique can be used with so many of our dies.  You just need a solid cut out for the back image and and detailed cut out for the front.  Along with two pieces of card stock that measure 1/4" x 1".  These two piece are what you adhere to the back of the solid butterfly to make it pop up.  View the view on the tips to place your adhesive.

#popup vi

 

The card base is the standard 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at the 4 1/4".  You need to give this card a try as it gives a WOW with not much effort.  I used the Timeless Tags Thinlit Dies that are in the Occasions Catalog for the little butterfly accent.  Sad to report this set of dies are retiring too.

DON'T FORGET while ordering your retiring items to use the Hostess Code PEXMMHH2 to receive my Nailed It Bundle PDF.  So sad to see this bundle retire too.  Such a great masculine bundle.
