Stamp Technique - Quilting

#quiltingtechnique #lindabauwin

Check out this beautiful quilted card.  You will want to watch the video on how to creative this technique at the bottom of this post.  Here is another sample of this stunning technique

#stamptchniquequilting #lindabauwin

Last month I did a technique challenge for those in my Stamp Family.  Members of my Stamp Family were to sent me a card using any stamp technique.  Joyce Coppens from Williamson New York and Leigh Amburgey from Mentor both submitted the same technique, quilting.

Are you interested in stamp challenges?  I do them with the demonstrators in my TEAM usually about every 6 to 8 weeks.  Currently they are doing a In Color Challenge.  

Would like the chance to win a $75, $50 or $25 gift certificate?  How about about getting your hands on the new In Colors before they are released to everyone?

If you answered yes to either of those questions, than becoming part of my Stamp Family would be a perfect fit for you.

Did you know right now you can get $125 of product out of the NEW Stampin' Up! Catalog for only $99 with free shipping?  What a deal!  No obligation just opportunities.  What are you waiting for?

Now it's time to sit back and enjoy the video on how easy it is to do this Quilting Technique on your cards.

Don't forget I am celebrating my 20th Anniversary with Stampin' Up! all this month with a special offer of 24 assorted sheets of 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper.  How do you receive this special gift?

Simply place a $30 order in my Online Store using Hostess Code Z36N3C2J.

It's Time For Creative Inking Blog Hop Color Challenge


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.


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.

Don't forget to take advantage of the Free Nailed It PDF by using the Hostess Code  PEXMMHH2.
