Fanfare Fold Video

You are going to love today's Creative Fold Card it is called an Fanfare Fold.  And not only is it super easy to make it is a great way to showcase Designer Series Paper.  Here is the card closed.

#funfarefold #lindabauwin

I used the Cool Treats Bundle, which includes a 36 piece stamp set and the Frozen Treats Framelits Dies that has 17 dies that match the set.  This card nicely showcases the matching Designer Series Paper Tasty Treats.  The paper coordinates so well with this bundle.  But . . . this paper is on the retirement list, but the good news it is on sale for only $7.80.  What a deal for 12 double-sided 12" x 12" paper.

Other items I used on this card were the Layering Oval Framelits, Tear and Tape, and the words from the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set. The card goes together so easy.

Here is the card open

It's Time For Creative Inking Blog Hop Color Challenge

#creativeinkingbloghop

So excited with this month's Creative Inking Blog Hop, as it's a Color Challenge using Pear Pizzazz, Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo.  Such fun spring colors.  And here in Ohio we are so ready for spring.

Thought I would do a Double Fun Fold Card for the Color Challenge, as I love Creative Fold Cards.  I have a video of another card using this same fold if you would like to see it here is the link.

#colorchallenge #lindabauwin

Here is the front of the card I used the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits along with the Fluttering Embossing Folder. The main card base is 5 1/2" x 6 1/4" scored along the 6 1/4" side at 4 1/4".  I ran the top flap through the Fluttering Embossing Folder.

#creativeinkingbloghop #lindabauwin

The inside of the of the first flap measures 5 1/4" x 8 1/2" and is scored at the 4 1/4" mark along the 8 1/2" side.   The verse is from the Window Shopping Stamp Set.  The Very Vanilla piece measures 2 1/2" x 4" and the Pear Pizzazz piece measures 2 3/4" x 4 1/4" this is the same size of the layer on the front of the card.

#colorchallengebloghop

Here is the card fully open, it is so bright an cheery.  The Pear Pizzazz piece of card stock measures 4" x 5" and the Very Vanilla measures 3 3/4" x 4 3/4".

Now it is time to hop on over to Sue Lehrer or hop back to  Lori Mueller.

Creative Fold It's A Flap Card

#flapcard #lindabauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video features a Flap Card.  I used a piece of Dapper Denim that measures 4 1/4" x 8 1/4" and it is scored at the 5 1/2" mark.  The Very Vanilla piece in the inside measures 4" x  5 1/4".

The top flap has another piece of Very Vanilla that measures 2 1/2" x 4" and it is run through the Big Shot with the Fluttering Embossing Folder.  In the video I say this folder is retiring, but it was a Senior Moment as this embossing folder will be in the New 2017-2018 Catalog.

Watch for details in the coming days on how you can get a New Catalog from me.  You MUST reply to have the catalog sent to you so stay tuned.

I used the Timeless Tags Thinlits for the butterflies, this is part of a bundle called That's The Tag, that includes the That's The Tag Stamp Set.  This bundle of product is retiring so act fast if you wish to purchase.

The Layering Ovals and the Stitched Framelits are great for an accent on the flap of this card.  I also used the retiring In Color Enamel Dots to add an adorable accent, and the words from Beautiful You.  Watch the video for more helpful hints.

The Nailed It PDF is still available.  The framelits are already sold out but the stamp set is available, remember we can still cut images out, that is what we did before framelits dies.

Pop Up Butterfly Card Video

#popupbutterflycard #lindabauwin

Here is the front of the card in today's video.  It uses two of the retiring Stampin' Up! Color Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder. I so love this color combination.  

Have you checked out Stampin' Up!'s Retirement List yet?  Don't delay as the In Colors and accessories always go fastest.

I used the words from the Beautiful You Stamp Set, that is the Occasions Catalog.  I am happy to report this set along, with the Watercolor Wings that I made the butterfly from, will still be available in the New 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog in June.  Along with the Layering Ovals and Stitched Framelits that make layering a breeze.

The inside of the card featured the 2015-2017 In Color Designer Series Paper.  You need to check out the video to see how I got this butterfly to pop up inside the card.

This technique can be used with so many of our dies.  You just need a solid cut out for the back image and and detailed cut out for the front.  Along with two pieces of card stock that measure 1/4" x 1".  These two piece are what you adhere to the back of the solid butterfly to make it pop up.  View the view on the tips to place your adhesive.

#popup vi

 

The card base is the standard 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at the 4 1/4".  You need to give this card a try as it gives a WOW with not much effort.  I used the Timeless Tags Thinlit Dies that are in the Occasions Catalog for the little butterfly accent.  Sad to report this set of dies are retiring too.

DON'T FORGET while ordering your retiring items to use the Hostess Code PEXMMHH2 to receive my Nailed It Bundle PDF.  So sad to see this bundle retire too.  Such a great masculine bundle.

Nail It Z Fold Card

  #naileditzfold #linda Bauwin

 

Today's Creative Fold Video is from the Nailed It Bundle.  I am so in love with this bundle.  The bundle is my Customer Appreciation PDF his month.  That you can get free when you place a $30 order in my Online Store. Remember to use the Hostess Code PEXMMHH2 to qualify for this PDF.

This card is not part of my Customer Appreciation PDF, it is an added bonus.  The Nail It Bundle is a must for any stamp collection, as it is perfect stamp set to use for those hard to make masculine cards.  I know some people who find masculine cards each to make, but they are not my favorite normally.

Sizes for this Z Card are:

I used Early Espresso Classic Ink and StazOn.  I also used the Hardwood Background Stamp.

This card is so quick and easy to make but has that WOW factor.

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.
