Video Showing The Tarnished Foil Technique

#tarnishfoil #lindabauwin

I am so in love with this new stamping technique I just learned called, Tarnished Foil.  I used with the Nail It Bundle.  This bundle is becoming my favorite masculine bundle.  You will want to subscribe to my blog, if you are not already, because in April I will be offering a very special deal with this bundle, that you will not want to miss.

#stamptechnique #nailit #lindabauwin

Here is the card I did using the tarnished foil technique.  Stampin' Up!'s Foil Sheets are the perfect product to do this technique.  Every color of our Foil Sheet gives this technique a new look.

You must use the StazOn Ink to add the first layer of color.  In the video, I embossed with the Hexagon Dynamic Textured  Embossing Folder first and then added the ink.  But you can add your ink first, just make sure you use a sheet of paper between your foil and the embossing fold, so you won't get the ink on your folder.

I then used the embossing buddy to remove any moisture from the foil and added VersaMark Ink Randomly on the the foil, and I applied Silver Embossing Powder.  Not only can use different colors of foil sheets you can also use different colors embossing powders.  I then heated with the Embossing Gun to melt the powders.

After the foil has cooled, I did the same thing again, adding the VersaMark then this time I added the Copper Embossing Powder.  Such an amazing look and it look so good with the Nailed It Bundle.

Watch the video for some other cool tips.  Then go get creative and share what you come up with.

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"

Two-Step & Double-Take New Technique

The New Occasions Catalog has some fun new twists on Two-Step and Double-Take Stamping. With the release of the new catalog, you will find a new bundle that features the Celebration Duo Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.  These new embossing folders are great as they create a debossed impression that gives a whole different look to the stamp set Happy Celebrations.

The Happy Celebrations stamp set is the traditional two-step stamping set. I guess it is really a three-step, as there are three coordinating stamps to stamp on top of each other with the "Happy".  But then you add the embossing folder and deboss you may say it becomes a four-step bundle.

Here are some fun cards I designed using this stamping bundle.

#lindabauwin #happycelebrations

Look at the fun stars under the "for you".  This comes from a great Tag Bundle called "That's The Tag".  So love the look of the stars.  But wait there are more fun thinlits in this bundle.  There are flowers and butterflies that add the little extra not just to a tag but to a card too.

#happycelebrations #lindabauwin

This card shows off the fun deboss look the embossing folder gives with this great bundle.  This truly is something we have not seen yet in other catalogs.  So check out the video below for some more great ideas.

Check out the video below for this Two-Step Bundle but check back tomorrow for the Double-Take Technique.

 

 


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.
