Sponged Brayer Background Video

#spongebrayervideo #lindabauwin

In today's video you are going to learn how to sponge brayer this beautiful beach scene.  The Sponge Brayers are the best kept secret in the Stampin' Up! Catalog.   We use to have rubber brayers and I could never get a nice smooth background with them.   The sponge brayers are different and very inexpensive and easy to use.

My video today was inspired by a card I got in a card swap from a dear friend Kim Peck.  Kim's card has much softer colors then my card, showing how versatile these brayers can be.

#kimpeck #lindabauwin

Kim and I both used the same color Classic Ink Pads: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Crushed Curry and Peekaboo Peach but we still got such different looks because of the amount of ink we put on our cards.

I used the High Tide Stamp Set, where Kim used the Colorful Seasons.  We both used the adorable chair from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, which you can get with the Colorful Season as a Bundle.

By using the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and the Wink of Stella you get a beautiful shimmering sun.

Christmas Club Class Share

#deercard #lindabauwin

We are getting geared up for 6 months of Christmas Cards in my Christmas Club Class.  If you missed the post, I hold these Club Classes in my home on a Tuesday and a Saturday each month in Jefferson.  I also take the class to Warren, Ohio on Wednesday night.  If you missed the post about those times you can check it out here.

 This is one of the cards we are doing this month.  I used the Santa' Sleigh Thinlits and the Santa Sleigh Stamp Set.  And then three little strips of the New Christmas Designer Series Paper Be Merry.  Doesn't get simpler then that.  Think that is the secret to doing lots of Christmas Cards is to keep it simple.

Hope you make plans to join in the near future at a Christmas Card Club Class, remember don't have to be a club member to attend.

This Little Piggy - Peek-a-Boo Video

#thislittlepiggy #lindabauwin

Love today's Creative Fold Video using the "This Little Piggy" Stamp Set and the beautiful new Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Hard to see by the picture the Bright color foil design in this paper.

I have done peek-a-boo card videos in the past, but this one has a different size opening and I used the Designer Series Paper in the opening instead of a verse.

I used the Layering Circles and The Stitched Framelits for the layering on the belly band to keep the card closed.  I also used the Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder which is a new folder.

Make sure you watch the video for some more details, but here are the dimensions of the card stock:

Daisy Delight With New In Colors

#daisydelightincolor #lindabauwin

Look at all the fun New In Colors in this card using the Daisy Delight Bundle.  All five of the New In Colors Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide were used on this card.

The card was submitted for my TEAM challenge by the very talented June Creagh from River Vale, New Jersey.  Love how she used all the New In Colors.  

Did you know the best way to purchase the In Colors Ink Pads is all together as you will get a discount by doing so.  And of course you need the card stock to match.  So you might as well get the assortment of Card Stock Pack, because you will get 4 each of the 5 colors.

June also used the New Clear Faceted Gems.  I am finding that I enjoy them more then the Rhinestone for my cards lately.

Don't forget with a $30 Qualifying Online Order using Hostess Code AN6M2Z69 you will receive my Exclusive PDF Tutorial for the Daisy Delight Bundle.

Video With Another Emboss Paste Idea

#eb1

Today's' video is a fun new way to use your Embossing Paste.  Stampin' Up! has the Pattern Party Decorative Masks to use with the Embossing Paste, but in today's' video I show and tell you how to make your own.

By making your own masks, the possibilities are endless to what you can create.  The card above is a Christmas Card we will be doing during my Christmas Club Card Class this month.

I used the Tree Thinlit from the Santa's Sleigh Thinlit Collection and a piece of Window Sheet to create my own Masking for the tree.  It looks so pretty, just like a pine tree with snow on it.

You can also create a masking with StazOn Ink and a stamp, stamped on a Window Sheet and cut out with a pair of scissors and get the same effect.

Take A Closer Look At The At Home With You Bundle

#athomeiwthyou #lindabauwin

The New At Home With You Bundle is a stamp set and framelits dies you will use all year round.  Not only for seasonal cards but for congratulations, thank you, birthday and so much more.

This card we did at last month's Club Class.  The picture doesn't show off all the detail that went into this card.  We stamped all the images with the Archival Basic Black Stamp Pad. so we could use the Aqua Painter with Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand, and Early Espresso Classic Inks to color the doors, door mat, and the pots.

The flowers in the pots and the wreath we used the New In Color Markers for 2017-2019.  The wall was embossed with the Brick Wall Texture Impression Embossing Folder.  The wood sill, under the welcome mat, is just a small piece of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.

Upcoming Dates

  • August Stamping in the Woods August 18-20  Registration is Open and spots are available.  Registration will close on July 25 or when full.  Cost is $190  Those attending will be among the first to design with the stamp set that I created as part of my Million Dollar Achievement.

Happy 4th Of July

#fourthofjuly #lindabauwin

Happy Fourth of July!  We are truly blessed to have so many freedoms here in the Untied States, I think some times we take these blessing for grant it.  I hope today we all take a moment to thank those that have given so much for us to enjoy this freedom, and for God's grace.

Today Jodie and I are in New York City celebrating.  Tomorrow we head out for an amazing adventure.  I am grateful for our freedom to be able to take this adventure.   But even more grateful for my faithful customers and TEAM Members who have helped me achieve a trip of a lifetime.

Tomorrow we meet up with 4 other women, as we head out to Grand Hotel Beijing in Beijing. China.  This is the hotel we will be staying at.

#beijingchina #lindabauwin

We extending the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip to see China before heading to Thailand.  It is so unbelievable at times to think I will be hiking the Great Wall of China all because of rubber and ink.  We will meet up with several other couples as we tour around China.  Then it's off to Thailand.  Check out this resort we will be staying at.

 

It is in Phuket, Thailand.  The name of the resort is Angsana Lagana.  Looks so breath taking I am so excited to be able to share this with Jodie.  I know we will have lots to share when we get home.

I am so excited, and nervous at the same time, as I will showcasing my Million Dollar Stamp Set to other demonstrators on the trip.

So if you try to contact me in the next two weeks,  I may not get back to you right away, as I don't know how internet service will be.
