Introducing Stampin' Up!'s Watercolor Pencils Video

So excited that Stampin' Up! will soon be releasing new Watercolor pencils to their collection.  I have had the privilege, because demonstrators can receive new product a month early, to be playing with these pencils.  And I know what you are thinking, but Linda doesn't like to color.  Okay I have to say I am starting to like it.

Look at the card I have created using these pencils?

#suwatercolorpencils #lindabauwin

Not only did I use the water coloring technique I used paper piercing on the dress.  And did you check out the stamp set?  It is called "Beautiful You" and it is among my favorites in the new Occasions Catalog.  Some very nice sayings.

So what do you think?  Not to bad for someone who doesn't like to color huh?  On this card I just used the pencils to color a shading for a background. This technique sure changes the looks of  your card.  

These pencils just may turn me in to an artist, or maybe just a want-to-be artist.  They are  high quality smooth color pencils.  Perfect for water coloring stamped images.  You can use with the Aqua Painter or the Blender Pens.

As you will learn in the video you can use Whisper White Card Stock, or Watercolor Paper to color on, but I am find the Shimmering White Card Stock to be my favorite.  Ca't wait for you to give them a try and tell me which paper you like to color on.

There are thirteen Stampin' Up! Colors in this collection of pencils being released now, but I am sure there are more colors on the horizon.  Check out the video for more great tips on how to use these pencils.



Triangle Box Video

#triangleboxclosed #lindabauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video is of this adorable Triangle Box perfect for a little Christmas Gift.

Here is a picture of the side view

#trianglebox #lindabauwin

I started with a piece of Garden Green Card Stock that measured 7" x 9 3/4".  You will score along the 9 3/4" side at 1 3/4" 4 1/4" and 7 1/4".  Along the 7" side you will score at 2" and at 5".  that is all the scoring.  As you will see in the video you just do a couple little cuts and that is all there is to it.  You will have a fun little triangle box to put a small gift in.

I forget to tell you in the video the sizes for the Designer Series Paper I used.  I used the beautiful This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper and I cut a strip that was 2 3/4" long and it then cut two pieces that were 2 1/2" wide, one that was 1 1/2" and finally one 2 3/4".

I used the Layering Squares Framelit Dies and the Stitched Framelit Dies to finish the box off.  Check out the video for more information on how easy it is to make this box.

Creative Fold is a Post-a-Note Holder

#postanotecover #lindabauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video is a Post-a-Note Holder.  I used the Marque Messages Stamp Set.  I CASE this idea from an easel card I got in a swap.  Unfortunately I didn't have a name on the project to give credit for the inspiration for this project.  So if it was you I say thank you.

The sizes of card stock I used are as follows

  • 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"Early Espresso
  • 4" x 5 1/4" Mint Macron 
  • 3 3/4" x 5" Very Vanilla
  • 3 1/2" x 4 1/2" Early Espresso score at the 1/2"
  • 3 1/4" x 3 3/4"
  • 1" 2 3/8" score at each end at the 1/2" mark.
  • 1" x 11" Early Espresso Score at the 2 7/8", 3 1/4", 7 5/8" & 8"
  • 3/4" x 4 1/4" Mint Macron

I used lots of rhinestones on this project along with the 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Dots.

Check out the video on how fast this cute 3-D project goes together.

Shh don't tell my Mom I shared her birthday card here.   She will be turning 81 on the 19th and I wanted to make a special card so I designed this shaker.
