Time For Another Creative Fold

It's time for another Creative Fold share from a member of my Stamp Family.  This card comes all the way from River Vale, New Jersey.   It was shared by June Creagh. 

#creativefoldcards #lindabauwin #7

June used the beautiful Falling in Love Designer Series Paper that is found in the Occasions Catalog along with the All Things Thanks Stamp Set.  The front of the card is very elegant but it is when you opened it, it is a WOW.

#creativefoldcards #lindabauwin #7o

It's an explosion card.  I have not done an explosion card for a very long time and forgot that WOW fact of a card like this.

  • Keep these tips in mind when making an explosion card:
  • An 8½" x 8½"piece of Designer Series Paper serves as the folded insert, fitting perfectly within a 4½" x 4½" card base. 
  • Crease each fold firmly with a bone folder. Doing so will result in a flatter, more professional finish.

How to make your Explosion

  • Fold up one corner to create a triangle.
  • Unfold triangle, turn paper and refold in the opposite direction.
  • Open paper, flip over and fold into a rectangle.
  • Once unfolded.   Push in the left and right sides (at the valley folds) to once again form a triangle.  This is the only tricky part of an explosion card.  Hope to do a video in the coming weeks to show those of you who are a visual learner like me.
  • Lightly mark the center of the bottom edge with a pencil on both sides.  Fold the top layer of left and right corners in to center point.
  • Flip over and repeat, folding in corners on the second side.
  • Working with one side at a time, unfold left and right corners.  Invert the right corner to inside at fold line repeat on left side.
  • Flip piece over and repeat, inverting left and right corners.  Apply adhesive on side at a time and put inside your card.

My first Exclusive PDF is being released at a perfect time, because on April 10th the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog and 2017 Occasions Catalog retiring list will be announced.  So you will know what to order before it is gone, and be able to add those things from your wish list.

Reminder we know that the 2015-2017 In Colors will be gone and all items that are bundles now.  They maybe available individual but not as bundles, so now is the time to get while you can get the 10% discount.

So place your order now, and be the first to get the Nailed It  Customer Appreciation PDF.


High Tide Sympathy Card

Today's video showcases the High Tide Stamp Set as a Sympathy Card.  This card is very stunning but support simple to make.  Check out the video.

#sympaaaaathycard #lindabauwin

I used the cloud sponging technique that I did on a couple of my past videos.

The sizes of Card Stock I used are"

I took a sponge dauber and sponged clouds, that I had cut out of a masking from framelit dies from the Up & Away Thinlits Dies, with our White Craft Ink.

I stamped the waves from the High Tide Stamp Set at the bottom in Pacific Point Classic Ink and sponged over with the Marina Mist Classic Ink.

The Sympathy comes from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set and the Sea Gulls from the High Tide Stamp Set.  I stamped them in the Basic Gray Archival Stampin' Pad.

That is all there is to this stunning card.

#bigannouncement #lindabauwin

Check back tomorrow as I announce a new Customer Appreciate Program that you will want to me back off.  It is an offer Exclusive from me.



Has this ever happened to you?

#todayisthelastday #lindabauwin

Don't want you to feel like this come Saturday.  I know it has happened to me before.  I think oh I have a couple more days to get that special, and then . . . life happens and I forget.

And we all know that towards the end of Sale-a-Bration the web site takes longer to get logged in to or worse yet it crashes and you are unable to place that last order.

Check over your supplies; including envelopes, card stock, adhesives and embellishments, to see if there is anything else you will be needing in the weeks to come to take advantage of Sale-a-Bration before it is gone.

Remember those In Colors will soon be a thing of the past.

Double Fun Fold Video

#doublefunfold #lindabauwin

Isn't this a stunning card?  It is a Double Fun Fold Card using the Special Reason Bundle, All Things Thanks Stamp Set, and the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set.

The colors used are Basic Black and Crushed Curry. I also used the Petal Burst Embossing Folder.

You first take a piece of Crushed Curry that measures 5 1/2" x 6 1/4" and score at 4 1/4".   You will see in the video how I embossed just the top portion of this piece.

Then I took a piece of Crushed Curry, that measured 5 1/4" x 8" and scored at the 4" mark.  Again just embossing the top portion.

I took a piece of Whisper White Card Stock that measured 2" x 2 1/2", and used the framelit die from the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies and die cut the daisy in the upper right corner.  I also cut a small piece of Basic Black Card Stock with the die for just the tiny center of the flower.

I stamped the words from the All Things Thanks Stamp Set in black in the lower left corner.  I took the small flower from the Special Reason Stamp Set and stamped around the edge of this piece of card stock.  And then adhered this piece to a piece of Crushed Curry that measured 2 1/4" x 2 3/4", and adhered to the top portion of Basic Black piece where it was dry embossed.

Here is the card half-way opened. 

#doublefunfold o

I took a piece of Whisper White 2" x 2 1/2" and stamped the words from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set in Basic Black Ink, and stamped the flower around the outside again.

You will want to adhere the Crushed Curry Card Base with the fold to the bottom of the Basic Black card base.  Watch the video for placement.

Here is the inside of the card.  I took a piece of Whisper White that measures 3 3/4" x 5" stamped the flowers around the outside and adhere to the inside of the Crushed Curry Base.  There you have it a Double Fun Fold Card.

Who is ready for another Creative Fold?

#creativefoldcards #lindabauwin #11

Isn't this card stunning?  It was created by Lisa Brown from Northfield, Ohio.  You can check out other creations from Lisa on her blog at Stamp with Lisa Brown.

This fold is called a Simple Z Fold Card.  I have done several videos with this type of fold.  There are many different alterations to this fold.  You can check them out on my YouTube Channel.  The Basic Z Fold Card is just your card stock scored in half and then fold back against itself on the front.  

Here is Lisa's card open.

#creativefoldcards #lindabauwin #11o

With Lisa's card it is a 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2" and then again at the 2 3/4".  It is a relatively easy fold to do that creates and awesome look.

Lisa used the Carousel Birthday Stamp Set that is part of the Cupcake & Carousels Suite in the Occasions Catalog.  She also used the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack from this Suite.

The soft colors in the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper are very pleasing to the eye.  They are Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral , Early Espresso, Peekaboo Peach, So Saffron and Very Vanilla.

Don't be left out more and more Sale-a-Bration Items are being discontinued each day.  And don't forget about getting the refills for those soon-to-be retiring In Colors.

Love this Easter Card.  I am so sorry the Sale-a-Bration Glimmer Paper is already gone.  But we knew this could happen, that is why you don't want to wait when it says "While Supplies Last".  You can achieve the a very similar look with a sponge or sponge dauber, and ink pad and the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  Check ou tthe video below.

#eastercard #lindabauwin

I used the Basket Builder Framelits Dies.  This is a must have framelits set, it makes decorating for Easter a snap.

I took the 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Soft Sky Card Stock and used a masking, that I created with the Up & Away Thinlits Dies in order to create clouds.  Just by sponging over the masking with Craft White Ink I get the puffy clouds.

I used the Silicone Mat and a Sponge with the Tombow Glue to adhere the Glimmer Paper.  This card is just stunning.  Once again sorry the Glimmer Paper Stack from Sale-a-Bration is gone.  As the end grows near of this sale, more things with me out of stock, so don't delay.

That also means the Ultimate Bundle will soon be gone.  Don't know what that it is?  It is a way for you to Test Drive Stampin' Up! and see all the benefits of being a demonstrator, like getting a look at the new catalog,  while getting a discount on paper crafting supplies.  There is no obligation just lots of opportunities.
