Creative Fold It's A Flap Card

#flapcard #lindabauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video features a Flap Card.  I used a piece of Dapper Denim that measures 4 1/4" x 8 1/4" and it is scored at the 5 1/2" mark.  The Very Vanilla piece in the inside measures 4" x  5 1/4".

The top flap has another piece of Very Vanilla that measures 2 1/2" x 4" and it is run through the Big Shot with the Fluttering Embossing Folder.  In the video I say this folder is retiring, but it was a Senior Moment as this embossing folder will be in the New 2017-2018 Catalog.

Watch for details in the coming days on how you can get a New Catalog from me.  You MUST reply to have the catalog sent to you so stay tuned.

I used the Timeless Tags Thinlits for the butterflies, this is part of a bundle called That's The Tag, that includes the That's The Tag Stamp Set.  This bundle of product is retiring so act fast if you wish to purchase.

The Layering Ovals and the Stitched Framelits are great for an accent on the flap of this card.  I also used the retiring In Color Enamel Dots to add an adorable accent, and the words from Beautiful You.  Watch the video for more helpful hints.

Sharing The Excitement

#OnStage2017 #linda Bawuin

There are no words to explain a Stampin' Up! Event, when you meet up with hundreds of other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators to view the New Catalog and Upcoming New Product.  I was so blessed to be asked by Sherrie Robinson of Bowling Green, Ohio to take a road trip with her to Richmond Virginia.

Sherrie also invited Karie Beglau from Farmington Hills, Michigan to join us.  Sherrie and I have been friends for years, but I didn't personally know Karie.  Well we had lots of bonding moments on our trip.  I will never forget all the laughs and crazy moments.

#onstage2017 #maryrodgerslindabauwin

I was joined by two members of my Stamp Family Mary Rodgers from Rochester, New York and Deborah Makowski also from Rochester.  Was so excited to get to know these ladies a little better, and to celebrate Mary's Milestone $200,00 in personal sales, way to go Mary.

There is always so much excited at a Stampin' Up!  Especially when a New Catalog with New Product is reduced.  Unfortunately I can't show you the catalog yet as it is TOP SECRET!  Sherrie, Karie, and I spend hours pouring over it.  All I can say is buckle up.

My Easter Card

#eastermessage #lindabauwin

Wanted to share my Easter Card with you, and to wish you a Blessed Easter Weekend.  I did this card as a Shoe Box Swap last weekend in Richmond Virginia and it was a big hit.

It uses the retiring Easter Message Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalog.  I have had lots of stamps with crosses on them, but nothing as stunning as the cross from the Easter Message Stamp Set.  I also used the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder that is so elegant, and as you guessed it too is retiring.

Behind the cross, the sun rays just highlight the cross so well.  The sun rays come from the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set, and this should come as no surprise, it too is retiring.  The grass is from the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set, which is a surprise, is not retiring.

I used the Elegant Eggplant and the Early Espresso Classic Ink to add color with the Aqua Painter and then finished off my highlighting with the Wink of Stella.

Faux Layering Video

#fauxlayering #lindabauwin

Made this card at a Shoe Box Swap while I was at Stampin' Up!'s OnStage Event in Richmond VA.  So love Shoe Box Swaps as I always learn something knew.  

For those of you that don't know what a Shoe Box Swap is, it is when you design a card, and all the supplies are to fit in a shoe box to make the card.   Every  one taking part in the shoe box makes your card and you make every one else's.

This card was made by a member of my Stamp Family Mary Rodgers from Rochester, NY.  She used the Big on Birthday Stamp Set, with the Floral Boutique and Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper, both of which are retiring.  She also used the Petite Petals Punch and the Project Life Punches they too are retiring, if they aren't gone already.

Mary taught me something new.  I had never used my Stampin' Write Marker to do Faux Layering.  As you see in the video, I have always used a sponge dauber and my ink pad.  But with the Stampin' Write Marker you get a different look.  When Mary did her card she just did a small line, mine is bold and not as uniform, but I love the look

Adorable Custom Tee Candy Holder

#customtee #linabauwin

Check out this adorable Custom Tee Candy Holder that was given to me this past weekend by Sherrie Robinson from Bowling Green, Ohio.  There are no words to explain how cute it is.  Here is a very from the side.

#candyholder #lindabauwin

It holds a Hershey Nugget and would made a perfect party favor for a little girls party.  Or change it up a bit for a Graduation Open House Favor.  The possibilities are endless.

With the Custom Tee Bundle from the Occasions Catalog making this little candy favor is a breeze to make.  Problem is though, it is not carrying over into the New 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog.  That means if you would like to make these adorable candy favors you need to act quick to get this bundle before it retires.

Here are the sizes and tips on how to make this little gem.  The collar and the little flower are from the Custom Tee Stamp Set and both have a framelits from the T-Shirt Framelits Dies.  That is why it is a must to order the bundle as all that you need is in that bundle.

  • Start with a 6" x 2-1/8" piece of card stock. On the 6" side score at 2-1/2", 3" and 3-1/2" marks.
  • Fold the card stock in half along the middle score line.
  • Arrange your Designer Series Paper with the T-shirt Framelit according to the diagram below.

#customtee #lindabauwin

  • Make sure you place the top cutting plate as shown in the diagram just above the cutting line of the bottom of the T-Shirt.
  • After checking the position of the framelit and top scoring plate, you may want to tape down with Washi Tape.
  • After cutting the dress free from the Designer Paper, run the other end through and cut out center

Give it a try it is so adorable.  But don't wait to order the Custom Tee Bundle as it soon will be gone.  Use the Hostess Code PEXMMHH2 to receive the free PDF on the Nailed It Bundle.

Pop Up Butterfly Card Video

#popupbutterflycard #lindabauwin

Here is the front of the card in today's video.  It uses two of the retiring Stampin' Up! Color Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder. I so love this color combination.  

Have you checked out Stampin' Up!'s Retirement List yet?  Don't delay as the In Colors and accessories always go fastest.

I used the words from the Beautiful You Stamp Set, that is the Occasions Catalog.  I am happy to report this set along, with the Watercolor Wings that I made the butterfly from, will still be available in the New 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog in June.  Along with the Layering Ovals and Stitched Framelits that make layering a breeze.

The inside of the card featured the 2015-2017 In Color Designer Series Paper.  You need to check out the video to see how I got this butterfly to pop up inside the card.

This technique can be used with so many of our dies.  You just need a solid cut out for the back image and and detailed cut out for the front.  Along with two pieces of card stock that measure 1/4" x 1".  These two piece are what you adhere to the back of the solid butterfly to make it pop up.  View the view on the tips to place your adhesive.

#popup vi


The card base is the standard 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at the 4 1/4".  You need to give this card a try as it gives a WOW with not much effort.  I used the Timeless Tags Thinlit Dies that are in the Occasions Catalog for the little butterfly accent.  Sad to report this set of dies are retiring too.

DON'T FORGET while ordering your retiring items to use the Hostess Code PEXMMHH2 to receive my Nailed It Bundle PDF.  So sad to see this bundle retire too.  Such a great masculine bundle.
