Delightful Daisy Z Fold Video

#zfold #delightfuldaisy #lindabauwin

Today's Video features a Creative Z Fold Card using the beautiful Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  One of the prints is this pack of paper is bold and beautiful, but you may be challenged on what to do with it.  I think you will find this creative fold to be just the answer to show the paper off.

I started with two piece of Tranquil Tide Card Stock that measured 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  The Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper measures 4" x 5 1/4".   For the card base I used Whisper White Card Stock and it measures 4" x 10 1/2" and it's scored at 2 5/8" x 5 1/4".  I simply stamped two greetings and the card is done.  How simple is that?

Stampin' Up! has so many beautiful Designer Series Papers to make card making a snap.

The Daisy Delight Bundle is my featured PDF for this month.  If you have not placed your online order to receive this Exclusive PDF you need to do so soon as it will be ending in a few short days.

Double Gate Fold Card

#kimbaker #lindabauwin

This is the card that inspired today's Creative Fold Video.  It was done by Kim Baker from Hennepin, Il.  Check out how she created the adorable pigpen with the Classic Label Punch and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.

Well I needed a 60th birthday card, so I decided to create it in a video and use the Double Gate Fold like Kim did.  Well I started out with the 5 /12" x 11" piece of cards stock, but I started scoring at the 1 3/4" mark instead of the 1 1/4" like Kim did. So I got a gap in my opening, as you will see in the video, but I still made it work.  Here is the card I created.

#creativefoldcard #lindabauwin

It is very easy to create a "special" birthday card with the Large Number Framelits.  I used the Dazzling Details Glimmer Paper which just makes the numbers jump off the Basic Black Card Stock.

Make sure you watch the video to see where I went wrong with this card.

Correct Score lines should be along the 11" side of the 5 1/2" x 11"piece of card stock  You will score at 1 1/4", 3 1/2", 7 3/4" and 9 3/4".  You will mark up along the 5 1/2 sides 2 1/2" and cut at a diagonal to get the Double Gate Opening.

This Little Piggy - Peek-a-Boo Video

#thislittlepiggy #lindabauwin

Love today's Creative Fold Video using the "This Little Piggy" Stamp Set and the beautiful new Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Hard to see by the picture the Bright color foil design in this paper.

I have done peek-a-boo card videos in the past, but this one has a different size opening and I used the Designer Series Paper in the opening instead of a verse.

I used the Layering Circles and The Stitched Framelits for the layering on the belly band to keep the card closed.  I also used the Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder which is a new folder.

Make sure you watch the video for some more details, but here are the dimensions of the card stock:

Top Opening Creative Fold Video

#sosorrystampset #lindabauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video is a Top Opening Card and is super easy to make.  Check out the video below for some useful tips in making the card.

 I used the stamp set Sorry For Everything.  It is a wonderful word set to say Sorry for being late for a birthday, for a loss, illness you name it it covers it all.  How many times we don't have the words to express how we feel, this set helps with that.

I also used a small piece of the Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  This paper is heavyweight paper with gold foil on one side and 5 vanilla/blue and 6 vanilla/pink on other side.  It is the perfect paper for baby cards or wedding.  Definitely a must have.

I once again used the butterfly from the Move Me Thinlits and this time used the Gold Foil Paper.

Here are the sizes of card stock I used to create this card

Creative Fold - Extended Opening Card

Did you join me last Friday when I did a video showing you how to mask the Pattern Party Decorative Masks?

#maskingamasking #lindabauwin

If you missed that post and video you can view here.  As I told you I was going to use the piece on my Creative Fold Card today.  And here is is.  It's an Extended Opening Card.

#extendedopeningcard #lindabauwin

The card is so cheery with the Berry Burst Color and the beautiful butterfly from the Move Me Thinlits.  I also used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits for the little scallop on the side.  And check out the 5/8" Crinkled Seam Binding in the Berry Bust.

As you will see in the video below, this is such an easy card to make.  Here are the dimensions for the card stock, so you can give it a try.

  • 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Smokey Slate Card Stock Scored at 1" and 4 1/4" along the 8 1/2" side
  • 3 1/4" x 5 1/2 Berry Burst Card Stock this is piece I cute the scallop edge on
  • 2 1/2" x 5 1/2" Whisper White Card Stock this is the piece that I stamp the verse from the Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set and did the masking with the Decorative Mask and Embossing Paste.

Leigh Amburgey from Mentor, Ohio won the first place spot with a $75 Gift Certificate from me.

But check out the inside.


The new Lemon Lime Twist is such a beautiful color when it's paired up with blues.  This card design is from a card design I did almost two years ago.  Check it out. 

As you seen in the video, I used more butterflies in the center of my card.  Doesn't matter it is such a stunning card.  Time is fast approaching for my BIGGEST Event of the year Stamp Garage Sale and Mystery Hostess.  Did you register in time to get a ticket for the drawing?   If you didn't it's not problem you can still join us for this amazing day.  June 17 Annual Garage Sale/Mystery Hostess.  It is held at 11 E.

It's Time For A Creative Fold Card With New Product

I shared a great video training Stampin' Up! created a few days ago using this great new Stamp Set called You Move Me.  If you missed that video, you can check it out on this blog post

#youmoveme #lindabauwin


This stamp set has a coordinating set of the Thinlits Dies called Move Me.  We also sell a bundle called You Move Me which contains the stamp set and the thinlits dies at a 10% discount.  Which is your best deal.

The video Stampin' Up! did used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits to create their project.  But I wanted it to be a creative fold.  So I created it into a Joy Fold Card.  

#joyfoldnewstampinupproduct #lindabauwin
Hope you enjoy the video below.  
Apologizing upfront, as I keep calling the hummingbird a butterfly.  Great news though there is a butterfly in this bundle.  In fact, I first did the card using the butterfly and wasn't as happy with it.  So I haven't totally lost it yet.

Sizes Of Card Stock I used on this card.

  • 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" scored at 5 1/2" in Early Espresso to form base of the card
  • 3" x 8" scored at 4" in Early Espresso to form the Joy Fold on opposite side
  • 3" x 3 1/2" Very Vanilla to form pocket
  • 2 3/4" x 3" Very Vanilla for inside the pocket
  • 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" for inside the Joy Fold for verse

I used Chocolate Chip, Peekaboo Peach and Garden Green for my inks.  The 1/8" Gold Ribbon is what I used for the pull up on the card.  I also used the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing Folder.


Don't forget a $30 order in my Online Store using Hostess Code S6QMW6CD qualifies you for one yard of each of the five New In Color Ribbons.

Center Opening Card

Today's Creative Fold Video features a Center Opening Card using the beautiful Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper.  So love the look of the black with the gold.  

#centeropening #easternpalace #lindabauwin

I used the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers that come in the Suite Bundle.  I have never used stickers on a card before the Eastern Palace Suite Bundle.  And I will have to say I really like it, gives the card a new look.  Reminder only until May 31 can you get this product at a 10% discount.  It will be in the new catalog but not as a bundle.

The Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper has heavy weight paper that has gold trim.  It really pairs nicely with the Gold Glimmer Paper. I used the Layering Circles to cut the Gold Glimmer Out.

This card is one of those simpler creative fold cards.  So if you have never tried a Creative Fold Card, this would be a great place to start.

The sizes of card stock and scoring are as follows, but make sure you check out the video as the scoring and cutting will make more sense.

  • 4 1/4" x 11" Basic Black Card Stock Score at the 5 1/2" mark.  Then along each side it is cut in one inch up to the score line.
  • 2 pieces of Designer Series Paper cut at 3/4" x 5 1/4"
  • 2" x 5 1/4" Whisper White Card Stock for center
