Sponged Brayer Background Video

#spongebrayervideo #lindabauwin

In today's video you are going to learn how to sponge brayer this beautiful beach scene.  The Sponge Brayers are the best kept secret in the Stampin' Up! Catalog.   We use to have rubber brayers and I could never get a nice smooth background with them.   The sponge brayers are different and very inexpensive and easy to use.

My video today was inspired by a card I got in a card swap from a dear friend Kim Peck.  Kim's card has much softer colors then my card, showing how versatile these brayers can be.

#kimpeck #lindabauwin

Kim and I both used the same color Classic Ink Pads: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Crushed Curry and Peekaboo Peach but we still got such different looks because of the amount of ink we put on our cards.

I used the High Tide Stamp Set, where Kim used the Colorful Seasons.  We both used the adorable chair from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, which you can get with the Colorful Season as a Bundle.

By using the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and the Wink of Stella you get a beautiful shimmering sun.

Video With Another Emboss Paste Idea


Today's' video is a fun new way to use your Embossing Paste.  Stampin' Up! has the Pattern Party Decorative Masks to use with the Embossing Paste, but in today's' video I show and tell you how to make your own.

By making your own masks, the possibilities are endless to what you can create.  The card above is a Christmas Card we will be doing during my Christmas Club Card Class this month.

I used the Tree Thinlit from the Santa's Sleigh Thinlit Collection and a piece of Window Sheet to create my own Masking for the tree.  It looks so pretty, just like a pine tree with snow on it.

You can also create a masking with StazOn Ink and a stamp, stamped on a Window Sheet and cut out with a pair of scissors and get the same effect.

Sunset Galaxy Sky Stamping Technique

#sunsetgalaxyskytechnique #lindabauwin

Today's Video features a Stamping Technique called Sunset Galaxy Sky Technique.  This technique was shared during my TEAM Technique Challenge by a member of my Stamp Family Mary Ann Rossiter.

Mary Ann was one of the winners of my TEAM Challenge and she received a Gift Certificate, which she is choosing to hold on to until the release of the New Catalog, next Thursday June 1st.

Here is the card that I showcased in today's video.  I followed Mary Ann's directions but I chose to use the following colors when I sponged with the daubers.

As you will see in the video, burnishing these colors into Whisper White Card Stock gives the appearance of the colors in a sunset.  Then I used the Aqua Painter to spatter some water.  Then I followed that step by stamping with the Timeless Textures Stamp Set with the White Craft Stampin' Ink.

This is such a stunning look.  I used the oldest stamp set I had to stamp the trees, Lovely as a Tree.   This stamp set has been around long than me.  It is still a go to stamp set.  Do you have it in your collection?

Now watch the video for more tips.  Make sure you join my as I start the countdown to the new catalog as I showcase some of the fun new products with video.

Video Showing Bokeh Technique

#stamptechniques #linabauwin

I received this beautiful card in my recent Technique Challenge to demonstrators that are in my Stamp Family.  They were to send me a card using a stamp technique and they got a chance to earn $75, $50 or $25 Stampin' Up! Gift Certificate.

This card done with the Bokeh Technique and was submitted by Joyce Coppens.  Below I have done a video on how the technique is done.  Here is the card I did.  It is not as vibrant as Joyce's.  You get a different look with different colors.

#bokeh #lindabauwin

The sizes of Card Sock I used were:

  • 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Whisper White Card Stock
  • 4" x 5 1/4" Rich Razzleberry Card Stock
  • 3 3/4" x 5" Whisper White.

To do this technique you select a few coordinating colors of ink and sponge or daub on a Whisper White Card Stock and cover it all.

Next you punch out different sizes of circles out of a scrap piece of card stock and you will use this as a stencil

Using the piece of Whisper White Card Stock that you sponged the coordinating colors on, place the scrap piece with circles punched out over top and daub or sponge on Whisper White Craft Ink.

Allow the Whisper White Ink to dry.  This will take awhile since it is a pigment ink.  You may wish to use your heat gun to dry quicker.

Then you will want to stamp over and embellish.

I used Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink to stamp the Birthday Blooms flower, and I added a Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Bee cut out with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies.

#stamptchniquequilting #lindabauwin

Video Showing Negative Image Stamping With Celebrations Duo Folders

The Celebrations Duo Textured Impressions Embossing Folders were introduced in the Occasion Catalog.  These folders create debossed impressions.

#celebrationsduoembossingfolders #lindabauwin

They work great with the Happy Celebrations Stamp Set to create cards like this one.

#happycelebrationbundle #lindabauwin

As you stamp over the debossed impressions, the ink doesn't go into the debossed area.  Well I learned a new way to use these folders, and you can get the tips on today's video.

I took part in one of Sherrie Robinson's Famous Shoe Box Swaps while at OnStage in Richmond, Virginia.  And I got to learn a this technique that I am calling Negative Imagine Stamping with the Happy Celebrations Stamp Set.  The card was designed by Cyndy Ponczek, and I so appreciate her sharing this technique.  

Check Out the totally different look by doing this technique.

#negativeimagestamping #lindabauwin

Check out how the word is darker ink instead of the white.  Watch the video to learn how to do this awesome technique.

The Confetti Embossing Folder, 5/8" Mini Striped Ribbon and the Party Animal Designer Series Paper were all used on this card.  If you like these accessories, you need to hurry before they are gone, as they are on the retiring list of products.  These products are all on sale at some pretty amazing sale prices.  Check out the Retiring Items in the links posted below.

Great Storage Solution For Framelits

#storagesolutions #lindabauwin

In today's video, we are going to look at Stampin' Up!'s Stamp Cases. They are the perfect purchase for organizing your stamping supplies.  The standard cases are perfect to store in a DVD Tower.  The wide ones sit nicely on a book case.

Thanks to Marie Beasley from Clayton North Carolina for inspiring this video.   Marie does a lot of scrapbook crops.  That is where you go some where else to create with other like minded crafters.

You want to take everything, this helps a lot with space.  But this storage solutions even helps when you are working at home.  Some times it is hard to go to your Big Shot Machine and locate a die cut to see if it will work nicely on your project.

By cut images out ahead of time, and having in a storage systems like this, they are always with in arms each.  I have these images right beside me with my stamp sets.  Here is a picture of them on my DVD storage rack.


Check out the video to see how I use the empty embellishment containers for small framelit cut outs.

Double Fun Fold Video

#doublefunfold #lindabauwin

Isn't this a stunning card?  It is a Double Fun Fold Card using the Special Reason Bundle, All Things Thanks Stamp Set, and the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set.

The colors used are Basic Black and Crushed Curry. I also used the Petal Burst Embossing Folder.

You first take a piece of Crushed Curry that measures 5 1/2" x 6 1/4" and score at 4 1/4".   You will see in the video how I embossed just the top portion of this piece.

Then I took a piece of Crushed Curry, that measured 5 1/4" x 8" and scored at the 4" mark.  Again just embossing the top portion.

I took a piece of Whisper White Card Stock that measured 2" x 2 1/2", and used the framelit die from the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies and die cut the daisy in the upper right corner.  I also cut a small piece of Basic Black Card Stock with the die for just the tiny center of the flower.

I stamped the words from the All Things Thanks Stamp Set in black in the lower left corner.  I took the small flower from the Special Reason Stamp Set and stamped around the edge of this piece of card stock.  And then adhered this piece to a piece of Crushed Curry that measured 2 1/4" x 2 3/4", and adhered to the top portion of Basic Black piece where it was dry embossed.

Here is the card half-way opened. 

#doublefunfold o

I took a piece of Whisper White 2" x 2 1/2" and stamped the words from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set in Basic Black Ink, and stamped the flower around the outside again.

You will want to adhere the Crushed Curry Card Base with the fold to the bottom of the Basic Black card base.  Watch the video for placement.

Here is the inside of the card.  I took a piece of Whisper White that measures 3 3/4" x 5" stamped the flowers around the outside and adhere to the inside of the Crushed Curry Base.  There you have it a Double Fun Fold Card.

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.

Blop hop next Blog PRior
