Creative Inking Blog Hop Color My World

So glad you joined us on the Creative Inking Blog Hop this month, with a theme of Color My World.  Those that know me, know that coloring is not my favorite technique.  But I have a lovely coloring technique to share with you called spotlighting.  I even did a video to show you how simply it is to do this technique. 

#spotlightcoloring #lindabauwin

As you will see in the video, I used the Layering Circles Framelits to spotlight just a section of the stamp image.  That way I don't have to color the whole card, but just the section I spotlighted with the circle framelits.

I used the Aqua Painter along with the Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi Ink Pads to color the flower in.  I used both the Clear and the Gold Wink of Stella to highlight the flower.  The flower comes from the You've Got This Stamp Set and the words are from the Butterfly Basic Stamp Set.

I think the Butterfly is a great accent and it is done with Gold Foil Sheet and the Bold Butterfly Thinlits Dies.

 

The sizes of Card Stock for this card are"

Now it's time to head over to see what Diane Evans has created or back to Lori Mueller Blog

#glimmerpaperassortment #lindabauwin

I bet you can't wait until Tuesday, February 21, which is the first day you will be able to order this pack of 6" x 6" Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack free with a qualifying order of $50.

As a demonstrator, I was able to order early a pack of this paper early.  Well I like you can't wait until Tuesday, so I can order more, as it is just too beautiful.

I want to share today a couple of the cards that I have made with this paper.  First I want to be conservative with it, so I can use it for many things.

Well I used the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.

#sunshinewishesthinlits #lindabauwin

The neat thing about using this thinlits set is that I used the heart and with one cut I got two different hearts, so I was able to make two different cards for the same  die cut.  How cool is that.  Take a look.

#glimmerpapersaleabrtion #lindabauwin

Here is the first card and below is the second card.  I used the heart that punch out of the first heart.

#saleabrationglimmerpaper #lindabauwin

Get those orders ready so you can order this beautiful Glimmer Pack on Tuesday.

Video to Learn Quick Stamping Technique

Stamptechniquemasking #lindabauwin

In today's video I am going to teach you how easy it is to do some masking with your stamping.  This technique allows you to get a layering look with your stamps.  I used the very popular Avant Garden Stamp Set from Sale-a-Bration.  You can get this stamp set free with a $50 order.

So watch the video, and make sure you come back on Tuesday as I am going to use this piece of card stock on my creative fold card.  Plus I will be using the beautiful Glimmer Paper that will be available on Tuesday, February 21 for the second round of our Sale-a-Bration Promotion Products.  This paper is a must have.

Any guesses what they are?

Do you have your favorite out of the new free Sale-a-Bration?  

I do.

I am sure it will be the number one seller.  

I have been working with this product today, and will share some samples this weekend.  

My favorite

Glimmer Paper Assortment

This paper is so beautiful to work with.  And I am just sending out a caution, because Sale-a-Bration may run until March 31, but it clearly states that "Product availability may be limited towards the end of the promotional sales period."  

Don't delay if you don't have the top three from the first catalog get ASAP.  And the Glimmer Paper well all I can say is you will want it too.

Peek-a-Boo Card

Today's Creative Fold Video features a Peek-a-Boo Card.  I am thinking this card is more of a creative cut then a creative fold.  But whatever I call it, it is just so cute with the adorable Hay Chick Stamp.

#peekaboocard

I used the technique of inking my Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder that I showed you on Friday.  If you missed that technique here is the link to that video.

 

Have you noticed that on my recent videos there is an "i" in the upper right corner?  So excited about this.  Thanks to a dear friend, France Martin, she has helped me figure out how to do this.  So now when you are watching one of my videos, and want to get more information you click on the "i" and it will take you directly to my blog post about that video.  No more search to find where the blog post is on my blog.  How cool is that?  So thanks France.

Have you tried the Shimmery White Card Stock for water coloring?  Whether you are using the Blender Pens or the Aqua Painter you will find that the Shimmery White Card Sock gives a really nice surface to work on.

Here are the sizes of Card Stock I used:

  • 4 1/4" x 7 3/4"  Real Red Card Stock Scored at the 5 1/2" mark
  • 2 pieces of 1 7/8" x 4" Crumb Cake Card Stock
  • 2 1/8" x 4 1/4" Real Red Card Stock
  • Small piece of Shimmery White Card for the Stitched Oval
  • Small pies of Basic Black for the Oval Background

WOW New Designer

#stampclub #lindabauwin

Check it out, a new designer.  My Stamp Assistant, Jodie is trying her hands on designing.  She has been working on this month's club cards.  Take a look at what we will be creating this month.

I never thought I would give up designing, as it's the part of my job that I love most.  BUT  I am busy creating for my upcoming stamp retreat.  (If you have not signed up for my March Retreat you need to, as I have some amazing projects to share with you.)   Jodie has been offering her suggestions on what I create for over three years.  So I thought why not let her help, since I am so busy right now.  

I love when you see a stamp set through someone else's eyes.  So would love for you to come join us this month and show Jodie your support.

I offer club in two different locations.  One is at my home, in Jefferson, Ohio.  This month's dates are Tuesday Feb. 21st open house style.  You can come anytime between 1 & 6 p.m.  It will also be held on Saturday Feb. 25 from 10 a.m. until noon.

The other location is in Warren, Ohio and will be held Feb. 22 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Don't need to be a club member to attend.  Just bring your own adhesive and either purchase $25 in product or pay a class fee of $8.  Come join the fun.  Please RSVP at least a week ahead of time.
