What happens with thirteen Big Shots?

2017-03-17 18.03.31

A whole lot of cutting?  This is what the Big Shot Stations looked like at my retreat last weekend.  This is what it looked like when hundreds of die cuts were being made.

2017-03-18 11.32.10

This is what the floor looked like after all the cutting.

2017-03-19 08.09.08

There was so much fun had this weekend by these amazing women.

Are you ready for another Creative Fold Video?

Today's Creative Fold Video features the bright Watermelon Wonder in a Pop Out Card.  Do you have this color?  You do know it's retiring soon?  So make sure you have the refill for your ink pad and enough card stock.

#popoutcard #lindabauwin

Here is the card closed.  It featuring the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper that is a free item during Sale-a-Bration or while supplies last.  I used my Aqua Painter with the Watermelon Wonder, Pear Pizzaz and Wild Wasabi to color the flowers and leaves in.

The flower center are highlighted with the Gold Wink of Stella and the flowers themselves with the Clear Wink of Stella.

The Detail Dragonfly Framelits Dies were used to highlight the Belly Band.

This Creative Fold was shared during my recent challenge to the demonstrators in my Stamp Family by Leigh Amburgey of Mentor.  If you missed the card she shared with this Creative Fold you can check it out here.

I used the must have Stitched Framelits that layer so well with the Layering Circle Framelits.

The sizes of card stock used for this card are:

  • 4 1/4" x 11" Watermelon Wonder Card Stock 
  • 4 pieces of Basic Black Card Stock 2 1/2" x 4"
  • 2 pieces of 1/2" x 1 1/4" Basic Black Card Stock
  • 4 pieces of  Inside The Lines Designer Series Paper 2 3/8" x 3 7/8"

Creative Inking Blog Hop Designer Series Paper Showcase

#designerseriespaper #su #lindabauwin

Stampin' Up's Designer Series Paper is the best to help make card making a breeze.  First, you have such a great selection of patterns, but the best part is that they coordinate with our inks and other accessories.  That is very hard to find in the paper craft industry.

This card uses the soon-to-be retiring Tip Top Taupe Designer Series Paper.  It doesn't get easier than that.  I used the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies, the Falling Petals Embossing Folder and a stamped verse from the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set.  And your card is complete.  

#designerseriespapersu #su #lindabauwin

This card is super easy.  I just stamped directly on to the Designer Series Paper with Early Espresso Classic Ink.  I used the beautiful Easter Message Stamp Set and the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper.

I used this paper as my main focus for projects we did last weekend at my Stamp Retreat and it was such a hit.  Reminder this paper will soon be gone, as it is in the Occasions Catalog that ends on May 31, or while supplies last.  I wouldn't wait to long to land this beautiful paper.

#designerseriespapersu  #lindabauwin

Here is another great way to add Designer Series Paper to a card.  Just by adding small strip across the bottom of the card.  I used the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper again, with the Very Vanilla 1/4" Satin Ribbon. It sits off the basket of flowers so nicely.

The flower basket comes from the Basket Bunch Bundle. If you have not checked out this bundle you need to.  Remember once a bundle has appeared in a catalog as a bundle, it will not appear at the bundle price again.  That doesn't mean the stamps and framelits will not appear in another catalog, you just won't be able to save with the bundle price.

Now it's time to hop on over and see what Diane Evans has to share with us.  Or hop back if you missed Dena Rekow lovely share.

Video Showing The Tarnished Foil Technique

#tarnishfoil #lindabauwin

I am so in love with this new stamping technique I just learned called, Tarnished Foil.  I used with the Nail It Bundle.  This bundle is becoming my favorite masculine bundle.  You will want to subscribe to my blog, if you are not already, because in April I will be offering a very special deal with this bundle, that you will not want to miss.

#stamptechnique #nailit #lindabauwin

Here is the card I did using the tarnished foil technique.  Stampin' Up!'s Foil Sheets are the perfect product to do this technique.  Every color of our Foil Sheet gives this technique a new look.

You must use the StazOn Ink to add the first layer of color.  In the video, I embossed with the Hexagon Dynamic Textured  Embossing Folder first and then added the ink.  But you can add your ink first, just make sure you use a sheet of paper between your foil and the embossing fold, so you won't get the ink on your folder.

I then used the embossing buddy to remove any moisture from the foil and added VersaMark Ink Randomly on the the foil, and I applied Silver Embossing Powder.  Not only can use different colors of foil sheets you can also use different colors embossing powders.  I then heated with the Embossing Gun to melt the powders.

After the foil has cooled, I did the same thing again, adding the VersaMark then this time I added the Copper Embossing Powder.  Such an amazing look and it look so good with the Nailed It Bundle.

Watch the video for some other cool tips.  Then go get creative and share what you come up with.


 Time is ticking away.  Don't miss out on the Ultimate Stamping Bundle.  Where you will get a chance to give Stampin' Up! a Test Drive and earn a discount on your paper crafting supplies.  This special offer ends March 31, Don't be Left Out.

Looking for more Creative Fold Cards?

Today's share from my Creative Fold Challenge with my Stamp Family, was created by Norma Johnson from Titusville, PA.

#creativefoldcards #lindabauwin #10

Norma used the Up & Away Thinlits Dies along with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder for the front of her card.  Her card is a Gate Fold Card and she accented the Gate Opening by using the Thinlits Dies to cut out the Balloon.  She did a belly band to keep the card closed.  Here is what it looks like opened.

#creativefoldcards #lindabauwin #9o0

When I received Norma's card for the challenge, I remembered I had done a video with this technique.  I was so surprised to find the video and it was done three years ago.   Thought you may enjoy seeing it.


Using your framelits dies in a Gate Fold Opening sure gives the card a interesting opening.
