Card Samples From Glimmer Paper Assortment

#glimmerpaperassortment #lindabauwin

I bet you can't wait until Tuesday, February 21, which is the first day you will be able to order this pack of 6" x 6" Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack free with a qualifying order of $50.

As a demonstrator, I was able to order early a pack of this paper early.  Well I like you can't wait until Tuesday, so I can order more, as it is just too beautiful.

I want to share today a couple of the cards that I have made with this paper.  First I want to be conservative with it, so I can use it for many things.

Well I used the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.

#sunshinewishesthinlits #lindabauwin

The neat thing about using this thinlits set is that I used the heart and with one cut I got two different hearts, so I was able to make two different cards for the same  die cut.  How cool is that.  Take a look.

#glimmerpapersaleabrtion #lindabauwin

Here is the first card and below is the second card.  I used the heart that punch out of the first heart.

#saleabrationglimmerpaper #lindabauwin

Get those orders ready so you can order this beautiful Glimmer Pack on Tuesday.

Any guesses what they are?

This paper is so beautiful to work with.  And I am just sending out a caution, because Sale-a-Bration may run until March 31, but it clearly states that "Product availability may be limited towards the end of the promotional sales period."  

Don't delay if you don't have the top three from the first catalog get ASAP.  And the Glimmer Paper well all I can say is you will want it too.

Brings A Smile - You Too?

#hey,chick #lindabauwin

These are the cutest little checks, they bring a smile every time I look at them.  And it doesn't matter how you stamp them they are just adorable.

This card we did at the training event I did in Rochester, New York.  I like the one little chick holding the banner that I made with a toothpick.  And the sassy chick with the interesting hair is framed in with the Layering Squares and the Stitches Framelits Dies.  And the little Metallic Foil Doily just makes him pop off the page.

#heychick #lindabauwin

Like I said every card you do with this set is cuter than the last.

#heychick #lindabauwin

You know you can only get this set with a $50 order and only through March 31, right?  Or while supplies last.

Create a Succulent Video

#ohsucculent #linda Bauwin

In today's video, I am going to teach you how easy it is to create a beautiful Succulent using card stock.  The succulent I made on the video I will use on Tuesday for my create fold video, so you will want to check back.

The Succulent Framelits Dies come with 17 dies to create beautiful succulents.  It is part of a bundle that features the 30 piece photopolymer stamp set.  As always, the best deal is purchase it as a bundle as you save 10%.

For the video I just used my Big Shot with the 5 framelits, Old Olive Card Stock, Sponge Daubers, and three ink pads Old Olive, Crumb Cake, and Rich Razzleberry. That's it.

To add some depth to my succulent, I used the Stampin' Pierce Mat, Paper-Piercing Tool and the Bone Fold.  As you will see in the video these succulents are super easy to make.  And by changing the shade of green card stock and ink, you will get a totally different looking succulent.

Check out this adorable Petite Cafe Gift Bag I made for a my dear friend Kathy for her birthday gift.  I used the same technique I used on the gift box I shared a week ago.

#ohsosucculentbag #lindabauwin

Now sit back and watch the video on how easy it is to make succulents.

Have you checkout the adorable Mini Egg Cartons?

#minieggcartons #lindabauwin

Have you checked out these adorable Mini Egg Cartons?  There are so cute.  Jodie's sister loves chickens and her birthday was last week.  So check out the cute way I was able to package up her gift with these mini cartons.

Here is the carton closed.

#eggcarton #lindabauwin

I used the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with the Crumb Cake Ink Pad, no big shot needed, to make the chicken wire.  Will have a video in a few days on how to do that technique.  I did that on a piece of Sahara Sand Card Stock for the top and also on the little tag I made.

I used the 5/8" Burlap Ribbon to wrap around the egg carton and the Thick White Baker's Twine to tie the tag to the carton.  And of course had to use the adorable Hey Chick Stamp Set that you can get free during Sale-a-Bration with a $50 order.  Have to admit I didn't like the Hey Chick Set when I first saw.  But love it now.

Check out the inside of the egg carton.

#heychick #lindabauwin

I bought a couple glass eggs and some chicken salt & pepper shakers.  Add some Spanish Moss and my little gift was done.  Julie seemed to really like it.  It was pretty darn cute.

I see where the Mini Egg Cartons have low inventory.  If you are thinking of getting them for Easter I would get ordered before it's too late.

Loving Succulents

#succulentbox #lindabauwin

What do you think?  Look like real Succulents?  Well there not.   They are card stock, and I am loving them.  Why?  Became I kill every house plant I get.  Have beautiful flower gardens outside but inside no way.

I took a piece Crumb Cake Card Stock, and stamped it with the Gorgeous Grunge and the Timeless Textures Stamp Set in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Ink. I then sprayed with Rubbing Alcohol and crunched it up, to give it an aged look.  I then took a Project Life Card Collection Box and covered it with the Crumb Card Stock.  

I used this box as a gift box for a dear friend's birthday gift.  But what made the gift come a live is the beautiful succulents on top.  Don't they look real?

#ohsosucculent #lindabauwin

I was so pleased with the look of the gift box.  I can't wait to make more of these beauties.  Watch, as I will have to do a video in the coming days and show you just how easy these succulents come together with the Succulent Framelits Dies found in the Occasions Catalog.  Hard to believe I start the succulents with Old Olive and Crumb Cake Card Stock.

Time is Running Out

My March 17-19 Stamp Retreat in N. Springfield, PA at Camp Judson is over half-full.  If you would like to attend don't delay, get your payment in before we are sold out.

Card Share From My Rochester, New York Event

#liftmeupbundle #lindabauwin

Wanted to share a fun card we did at the event I held in Rochester, New York  last weekend.    Jodie and I had so much fun stamping with the 50 wonderful ladies on Saturday.  I thought it would be fun to share some of the cards we made over the coming days.

This card uses the Sunburst Thinlit from the main Stampin' Up Catalog for the background.  The main focus of course is the Hot Air Balloon.

Last April Jodie and I took a ride in a Hot Air Balloon over Salt Lake City.  Something that had been on my bucket list, but I guess I never knew how popular hot air balloons are.  Because this is one of the fastest selling bundles for me in the Occasions Catalog.

It has a fun stamp set called Lift Me Up, with sixteen rubber stamps and matching Framelits Set called Up & Away that has 15 different dies.  As you can tell by the picture some of the dies are different inserts to be placed behind the main balloon.  This allows you to make your balloon very colorful.  Just a really fun set to play with.  Of course there is a bundle that allows you to save 10% when you buy the stamp and dies together.

When you purchase the bundle you are very close to a Free Sale-a-Bration Item.
