Double Slider Card

  Open Double Slider_Linda Bauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video features a Double Slider Card with the Build a Birthday Stamp Set.  This is a set of 8 photopolymer stamps that is great for any birthday card.  

That is why I am featuring this set as a Stamp of the Month Kit this month.  You will want to check back tomorrow for all the details of this Stamp of the Month Kit.  For today sit back and enjoy this creative fold that is part of this kit.

The base of the card is your standard 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of card stock that is scored at 2 3/4", 5 1/2" and 8 1/4".  You will need the 1 3/8" Circle Punch and the Word Window Punch to create the opening and slide.

All you need to make the slide part of this card is the large Cellophane Bags that measure 4" x 6".  You cut a strip off this bag that measures 1 1/4".  

The slides themselves are made with two pieces of Watermelon Wonder Card Stock that measure 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", and two pieces of Whisper White that measure 2 1/4" x 3 1/4".

The Designer Series Paper that is wrapped around measures 4" x 6" and comes from the Cherry of Top Paper Stacks.  Have you checked these paper stack out yet?

There are a great source of lots of fun design paper patterns.  Each Paper Stack comes with 48 sheets of 6" x 6" double-sided paper.  There are 12 different patterns and you get 4 sheets of each pattern for only $8.00. What a deal!

This is the first time that I used the new Tear and Tape being sold by Stampin' Up! in the new catalog.  Oh my I am in love.  No more pieces of red sticky tape all over.  You need to give it a try also because I guarantee you will love it like me.



Butterfly Coloring Tips

Watercolor Wings_Linda Bauwin

Today's video features my favorite bundle in the new Stampin' Up! Catalog Watercolor Wings, with the Bold Butterfly Framelits.  When you purchase this bundle you save 15%, and you get a photopolymer stamp set that has 15 stamps, plus 2 matching framelit dies.  

I truly can't get enough of this bundle.  Maybe it is because I fell in love with stamping because of two-step stamping.  Well this set  is a three-step stamping set.  So today, I am going to show you some coloring tips with the set.  Check out these color combos. 

Water Wings Color Tips_Linda Bauwin

If you love this bundle like me, why not purchase it through my Stamp of the Month Program?  Don't know about Stamp of the Month?  Check it out.  Then look at what you get with the Watercolor Wings Stamp of the Month Kit.

The number one question I get all the time is, I purchased this set from you because I fell in love with one card you made with it.  Now I don't know what else to do with this set.  Well when you purchase a Stamp of the Month Kit you never have to worry about that again.  As my kits have any where for 5-10 card tutorials, with videos when needed, to explain a card.  And of course, all of my Stamp of the Month Kits feature a creative fold, that is a given.  I try to use every stamp in the set.  So if you have not tried my Stamp of the Month Kits this may be the time.
