Look What I Got

#saradouglas #lindabauwin

I am sure you are thinking what???  It's a card done with the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set and the Tree Builder Punch, what's so exciting about that.  Maybe this clue will help.

#makeacardsendacard #lindabauwin

#saradouglasceosu #lindabauwin

It came from the CEO of Stampin' Up! Sara Douglass.  Now you see the excitement?  

On May 4th Sara did a Facebook Live and talked about her plan to make cards and send them to women who have impacted her life for good during the month of May. She stated, it's always a good time to#MakeACardSendACard right?  It's also #arthritisawarenessmonth which is something Shelli, Sara's Mom is struggling with, so for her it's a double-whammy!   She invited others to join her and hashtag your cards #MakeACardSendACard so we can all see them. ❤️

#makeacardsendacard @asarathing #lindabauwin

Well I was honored to not only get a card but a call from Sara to Congratulate me on my 1.1 Million Dollars in Career Sales.

Sara and I talked for about an hour about my business, and concerns.  Sara listen to my feedback and said she appreciated my being open and honest about my concerns.  The phone call met a lot but the card OVER THE TOP, it brought a tear to think Sara would take the time to send me a card and say she values me.

When is the last time you sent a card?  We are all good at making them.  BUT...it is the sending the card that makes the difference.  So I challenge you today to #makeacardsendacard today.  And make someone's day like Sara did mine.  Thanks Sara.


Center Opening Card

Today's Creative Fold Video features a Center Opening Card using the beautiful Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper.  So love the look of the black with the gold.  

#centeropening #easternpalace #lindabauwin

I used the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers that come in the Suite Bundle.  I have never used stickers on a card before the Eastern Palace Suite Bundle.  And I will have to say I really like it, gives the card a new look.  Reminder only until May 31 can you get this product at a 10% discount.  It will be in the new catalog but not as a bundle.

The Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper has heavy weight paper that has gold trim.  It really pairs nicely with the Gold Glimmer Paper. I used the Layering Circles to cut the Gold Glimmer Out.

This card is one of those simpler creative fold cards.  So if you have never tried a Creative Fold Card, this would be a great place to start.

The sizes of card stock and scoring are as follows, but make sure you check out the video as the scoring and cutting will make more sense.

  • 4 1/4" x 11" Basic Black Card Stock Score at the 5 1/2" mark.  Then along each side it is cut in one inch up to the score line.
  • 2 pieces of Designer Series Paper cut at 3/4" x 5 1/4"
  • 2" x 5 1/4" Whisper White Card Stock for center

It's Always Been About SU! Colors

WOW it's always been about color with Stampin' Up!  Even twenty years ago when I started as a demonstrator with this company.  Check out the catalog I started with.

1996-1997 Stampin Up Catalog

You can see a big difference from the front of the catalog.  Compared to the detail on the front cover of this year's catalog.  And even though I was in love with all the colors twenty years ago, they were not as beautiful as today's colors.  But they were top of the line.

I have seen many color refresh over my twenty years as a demonstrator.  I think the biggest change in color is when we started making our own designer series papers.  Now we even have Concept Artist that hand paint some of our Designer Series Paper.

This year's paper is over the top.  We have so many new prints.  I thought maybe you would like to check out Stampin' Up!'s newest Designer Series Paper by watching this YouTube Video.  

The video does give you a hint of the beauty of this paper.  But the best way to see how great it is, is in person.  So make sure you make it to one of my open coming events, where I will have a sample of this beautiful paper for you to see.  For now sit back and enjoy the video.


Don't forget about my 20 Year Anniversary Special going on right now until May 31, where you can get 20 sheets of assorted 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper when you use Hostess Code Z36N3C2J in my Online Store.






Creative Inking Blog Hop - What Goes A Round

Blog hop

It's time for another Creative Inking Blog Hop with a theme this month of What Goes A Round.  I could think of no better product to share for this hop with so many circle, then the Eastern Palace Suite Bundle.  The framelits in this bundle create so many circles.  Did you see my post with a sample of what you can do with this amazing bundle of framelits?  Here is the link to that post and a quick review below.  You can check other examples on the link.

#easternpalacetemp5 #lindabauwin

These Framelits lay together to make some pretty cool designs, with a lot of them being circles. They are part of Stampin' Up! Promotion this month featuring a sneak peak of new product from the new SU! Catalog at a discount.  If you miss the details about this great promotion you can learn about it by clicking here.

Here is the card I designed from these thinlits using the beautiful New In Color Berry Burst.


#creativeinkingbloghop #lindabauwin

So I love this bright New In Color.  Check out the 1/2" Fine Woven Ribbon and the In Color Bitty Bows in the same color.  Love these felt bows already pre-tied with an adhesive dot on the back, in the five New In Colors.   You can get your hands on all this New In Color Product come June 1st.  But if you decide to sign up as a demonstrator now, you can get this beautiful new product in your kit.

Time For A Stamp Technique Video

#margievandergraff #lindabauwin

Today's video was inspired by the card above created by Margie Vandergraff from Noblesville IN.   She submitted the card in my technique challenge.  Margie called the technique Faux Silk.  I have heard it called Faux Linen also.  It is hard to tell from the picture, but this technique really gives dimension to your card.  You will see in the video when I create the card below.

#stamptechnique #lindabauwin

I used the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper that you can get right now in the Eastern Palace Suite Bundle.  I love the Dapper Denim and the Gold in this paper.  I used the Wild About Flowers Stamp Set and the 1/8" Gold Ribbon for an accent.

You will see in the video this technique adds texture to your design and gives your card a little pizzazz.

You want to cut a piece of white tissue paper slightly larger than your white piece of card stock.

Stamp image of your choice on the tissue paper using black ink.  If your tissue paper has a glossy side you want to stamp on the non-glossy side.  If your stamp image is an open image you can use Stampin' Write Markers to color in.  I used a solid stamp on my card, so I got my color from my ink pad.

Next you want to crumple tissue into a ball.  Carefully open and flatten slightly.

Cover the white card with glue using a glue stick.  Place stamped and colored tissue over the glue and flatten leaving some of the wrinkles.  You can trim edges of tissue even with the card stock or tuck behind the white card stock.

For a softer look you can stamp image on white card stock and color.  Crumb a piece of tissue paper, open and flatten slightly then glue on top of design.  Trim edges as before.
