Peek-a-Boo Card

Today's Creative Fold Video features a Peek-a-Boo Card.  I am thinking this card is more of a creative cut then a creative fold.  But whatever I call it, it is just so cute with the adorable Hay Chick Stamp.


I used the technique of inking my Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder that I showed you on Friday.  If you missed that technique here is the link to that video.


Have you noticed that on my recent videos there is an "i" in the upper right corner?  So excited about this.  Thanks to a dear friend, France Martin, she has helped me figure out how to do this.  So now when you are watching one of my videos, and want to get more information you click on the "i" and it will take you directly to my blog post about that video.  No more search to find where the blog post is on my blog.  How cool is that?  So thanks France.

Have you tried the Shimmery White Card Stock for water coloring?  Whether you are using the Blender Pens or the Aqua Painter you will find that the Shimmery White Card Sock gives a really nice surface to work on.

Here are the sizes of Card Stock I used:

  • 4 1/4" x 7 3/4"  Real Red Card Stock Scored at the 5 1/2" mark
  • 2 pieces of 1 7/8" x 4" Crumb Cake Card Stock
  • 2 1/8" x 4 1/4" Real Red Card Stock
  • Small piece of Shimmery White Card for the Stitched Oval
  • Small pies of Basic Black for the Oval Background

Dutch Door Video

#succulent #creativefold #lindabauwin

In today's video, I use the beautiful succulent that I made in a video last Friday.  If you missed that video, you can check it out here. I am calling today's creative fold a Dutch Door Opening Card.  Not sure that is the correct name but that is what we will call it.  When it is closed it looks like a regular card.  But when it is open it does open like Dutch Doors.

#dutchdoor #lindabauwin

This is a very simple to make creative fold.  I did some collage stamping wit the Timeless Textures and the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Sets.  Both of these stamp sets make collage stamping a breeze.  I did tone on tone and I think that helps with the Vintage Look.  This is the technique that I used on the gift boxes from a couple weeks ago and the Petite Cafe Bag a few days ago.

Sizes of Card Stock Used for This Card:

Creative Fold Video

#sodetailedthinlits #lindabauwin

Did you see how I made this beautiful belly band in my video on Friday?  I used the So Detailed Thinlits Dies and the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies. Today I will use this belly band on my creative fold card.

#shuttercard #lindabauwin

Here is the front of the card with the belly band on.  I used the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper along with the Sahara Sand Card Stock.  The Gold Foil Butterfly just shines on the front of the card.  

#shuttercard #lindabauwin o

Here is the card opened.  When you watch the video you will see how the card goes together.  I used the Layering Circles Framelits and you want to make sure you use the Tear-n-Tape on the pieces of card stock for the shutter closure, but use Tombow Multi-Purpose Glue for the inside greeting of the shutter.

Here are the measurements for this card:

  • 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Sahara Sand Card Stock scored at 2 1/8" along the 8 1/2" side to form a gate fold card
  • 2 pieces 2" x 5 3/8" of Falling in Love Designer Series Paper
  • 2 pieces 3 1/2" x 4" Sahara Sand Card Stock scored along the 4" side at 1/2" watch video for cutting the ends of these two pieces for your shutter opening
  • 3" x 5 3/8" Sahara Sand Card Stock
  • 3" x 5 3/8" Falling in Love Designer Series Paper

Time for a Creative Fold Video

#creativefold #storybook #lindabauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video features a Storybook Fold with lots of fun new products from the Occasions Catalog. On the front of the card I used the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies. These dies are part of a product bundle that includes the Special Reason Stamp Set.  This bundle will be featured in my March Stamp of the Month Kit, so stay tune.

Notice the stem it is a negative image. Think that is what is so need about the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies, they give you another look.  Another favorite die in the Occasion Catalog that is so easy to miss, is the Timeless Tags Framelits Dies.  That is where the little butterflies come from.  That die can be used as a negative image also.

#creativefold #specialreason #lindabauwin

The inside of the card features more of the Stylish Stems and Timeless Tags Framelits Dies along with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder and the beautiful Falling in Love Designer Series Paper.

In the video, I show you how to cut and score to get the Storybook look.  But here are the measurements of the card stock:

  • 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Sahara Sand Card Stock
  • 4" x 5 1/4" Rich Razzleberry Card Stock
  • 3 3/4" x 5" Old Olive Card Stock
  • 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" Sahara Sand Card Stock
  • 2 pieces Sahara Sand that measure 7/8" x 2"
  • 2 pieces that measure 2 1/8" x 3 1/4"
  • 5 3/8" x 8 1/2' Falling in Love Designer Series Paper

All the cutting and score of the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper is explained in the video.  Want to give a shout out to dear friend France Martin who inspired this card with her Christmas Card to me.  Thanks France.



Twisted Pop-Up Card Video

#twistedpopup #lindabauwin inside

Why did I wait so long to do this creative fold?  Because I felt it was too difficult.  Boy was I wrong.  Once you get the basics down it is an easy creative fold as you will see by the video below.

#twistedpopup #creativefold #lindabauwin

I started with a piece of Smoky Slate that measured 4 1/4" x 11" and it's important to decorate the front first.  I used the beautiful Lift Me Up Bundle.  This bundle matches the Carried Away Designer Series Paper which is a free item with a $50 order until March 31, or while supplies last, during Sale-a-Bration.

To make the pop-up part of the card you need a piece of card stock that measures 3" x 8".  You will score down the center on both ides at 4" on the long side and 1 1/2" on the short side.  Mark at the 2 1/2" from each corner with a pencil, on the top and bottom edge of card stock.

You will score an "X" from mark to mark.  The center of the "X" should match the center of the card stock where the other score lines intersect.  Watch the video as it will help you, this is what scared me, but it is very simple.  Just remember to burnish your score line well.  You will mark 2 1/8" in the center fold of your card and that is where this pop-up goes.

To cover up Pop-up cut to piece of designer series paper that measure 4" x 5 1/4".  Mark at the 2" on the short side and 2" down on each side.  You will cut a triangle to fit inside the card and cover up the center.

The focus piece is 3 3/4" x 11" score in center at 5 1/2" and at 2 3/4" from each end.  This will fold like a "W".  You need 4-2 1/2" x 3 1/2" panels for the focus piece.

To assemble the card, center the booklet at the top of the open card, ends upward just inside the edge, with the back page facing up.  Apply Adhesive to the Pop-Up Mechanism, as show in the video.

Check out today's Peek-a-Boo Flip Video

You are going to love this creative fold card, that was inspired from Julie Davison.  I have been wanting to do this card for months, but thought it would be too hard.  WRONG!!

#peekabooflip #lindabauwin

Here is the card closed.  I used lots of new product from the Occasions Catalog.  First the beautiful new Special Reason Bundle.  Stay tuned as this will be my March Stamp of the Month Kit.   I also used the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder,the Lace Doilies,  and check out those little butterflies.  They come from the Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies.  You are going to be seeing a lot more of those butterflies as I am in love with those framelits.

#peekabooflip #open #lindabauwin

Here is the card open.  On my sample card I used the Delicate Details Stamp Set that is a free item during Sale-a-Bration.  I forgot to use in the video but I added a fun new twist to the video card.

To make this card I used the following pieces of card stock.

  • 8 1/2" x 11" Dapper Denim Card Stock scored at the 5 1/2" and then cut at the 4 1/4" making two A2 cards
  • Take one of the 4 1/4" x 11" pieces and cut at 8 1/4"
  • Take the other one and cut at 5 3/4"
  • 4 1/4" x 8 1/4" Very Vanilla scored at 4 1/4"

That's all you need to create the base of this fun Peek-a-Boo Flip Card.  If you are joining me for my stamp event in the Rochester New York area this weekend you will be making this card.  What fun we are going to have.

Tunnel Spinner Card Video

I am back from a little break from doing videos, with this fun Tunnel Spinner Card.  It is one of the creative folds you will find in this month's Stamp of the Month.

Have you checked out this month release of my Stamp of the Month Kit?  I used the Sealed With Love Bundle. that will be released tomorrow in the New Occasions Catalog.  This Stamp of the Month Kit is not just about Valentine's Day, it is about sending love all year long.

#tunnelspinnercard #lindabauwin

Here is the card front, so many fun elements on this card from Gold Foil, Metallic Thread and Sequins, to the Delicate Doily.   But the wow factor of this card is when you open it and see the Tunnel Spinner.

#tunnelspinnercardopen #lindabauwin

This is the inside.  It looks hard but really is not, watch the video as I show what to look out for when making this card.

The card base is the standard 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" card.  The inside tunnel part is 5 1/4" x 8" and I used Whisper White Card Stock.  It is scored at the 2", 4", & 6" marks.

I used the Happy Heart Embossing Folder to emboss the two ends.  Would of liked to of used the new Falling Petals Embossing Folder from the Occasions Catalog but it was too wide.

I cut the tunnel opening for the spinner with the Layering Hearts Framlit Dies. The Thick Baker's Twine was used for the spinning hearts.

Like I said make sure you watch the video as I give you tips on how easy this card goes together.

Creative Inking Blog Hop Winter Frolics

Welcome to the Creative Inking Blog Hop with a theme of Winter Frolics.  A Blog Hop on a Tuesday, which is my day each week to share a Creative Fold Card.  So you get both today.  A Creative Fold Video, a Tower Card, and a Winter Frolic Blog Hop with a Birthday Card. 

#towercard #lindabauwin

 It is hard to get a good picture of how cute this card is, it lays flat to mail, but then stands up like a tower to display on a shelf.

I used the Birthday Banner and Snow Place Stamp Set to create the cool Banner along with the Bunch of Banner Framelits. The adorable Penguin comes from the Snow Place Stamp and is cut out with the Snow Friends Framelits. Don't know how well you can see in the picture, but I used Wink of Stella to give him a little shine.

The panels around the Tower Card use the Woodland Embossing Folder and I brayered the fold.  Here is a video where I show this technique along with the Faux Illusion.  Really adds a cool look to the card.


Getting so excited to share all the fun new product in the Occasions and Sale-a-Bration Catalogs that starts on January 4th.  So starting next week I will feature videos on some of the must have products in these two new catalogs.

Now it's time to hop on over to Diane Evans great post or part if you missed Dena Rekow.

Quick & Easy Designer Series Bag Video

#quickeasybag #lindabauwin

This video is going to show you how quick and easy it is to make a gift bag, to hold a gift card or small gift, all from a half of sheet of designer series paper. That means two bags from one sheet of designer series paper.

Like I said all you need is a half of a sheet of designer series paper.  Then along the 6" side you will score at one inch and four and a quarter.  Along the 12" side score at one and three quarters, five and one quarter, seven and at the then and a half.  How simple is that?

I used a Gold Binder Clip to close my bag.  You could also put handles on the bag and make it in to a little purse.  So cute.  Can't wait to see what you design with this pattern.  Make sure you share.
