Video With Another Emboss Paste Idea


Today's' video is a fun new way to use your Embossing Paste.  Stampin' Up! has the Pattern Party Decorative Masks to use with the Embossing Paste, but in today's' video I show and tell you how to make your own.

By making your own masks, the possibilities are endless to what you can create.  The card above is a Christmas Card we will be doing during my Christmas Club Card Class this month.

I used the Tree Thinlit from the Santa's Sleigh Thinlit Collection and a piece of Window Sheet to create my own Masking for the tree.  It looks so pretty, just like a pine tree with snow on it.

You can also create a masking with StazOn Ink and a stamp, stamped on a Window Sheet and cut out with a pair of scissors and get the same effect.

Video Masking The Pattern Party Decorative Masks

Last week I shared how to sponge the embossing paste after you used the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.  If you miss that video here it is. 

In today's video, I am going to show you how to Mask The Party Decorative Masks to achieve a layering look with your masking and Embossing Paste.

I am really liking using the new Embossing Paste.  In the video, I use paste that I have tinted with Classic Stampin' Ink Refill Berry Burst.  By tinting your Embossing Paste it really gives a totally different look.

#maskingamasking #lindabauwin

I first stamped my sample, that I will use on my Creative Fold Video on Tuesday, with a stamp from the Ribbon of Courage in Berry Burst Classic Ink.  Then I cut an oval out with my Layering Ovals Framelits to create the masking.

This technique is easy to do and really gives a stunning look, so check out all the details in the video below. 


Check Out All The Glimmer

Have you got your free pack of assorted 6" x 6" glimmer paper?  When you place an order of $50 you can get this paper free.  Check out today's video, this card shines.

#glimmerpaper #lindabauwin

I am very impressed with this glimmer paper when you cut it out with the framelits dies.  It cuts clean and crisp, with very little glitter mess.  It is always best, when possible, to cut on the paper side of the glitter paper.

You will see in the video, I used the got-to-have, Stylish Stems Framelits Dies which has a matching stamp set, Special Reason.  This does come as a bundle, and is so different than any framelits we have had in the past.  As you can just cut a negative image of the flower, if you want.

Glimmer paper can be a little tricky to adhere to your projects.  I am finding tat the Tombow Multi-Purpose Glue is becoming my best friend with this paper.  Did you check out the cute little butterfly it came from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.

I used the Lots of Labels layering framelits and the Festive Embossing Folder to create my background for the card.  Are you finding, like me, that is hard to have just a plain card stock background?  You just need to jazz it up a bit.

Time is running out to take advantage of Stampin' Up!'s Ultimate Bundle, the Starter Kit.  Why wouldn't you want to get over $200 worth of product for only $99 with free shipping?  

Did you know by purchasing the kit you will be able to buy any of the retiring items from the annual catalog, plus all the new items in the 2017-2018 Catalog, at a minimum 20% discount.  Need more information? Check it out here.

Quick Technique with Detail Dragonfly Thinits Dies

Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies

Have to admit I am in love with these Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies.  Today I am going to share a quick technique to use them.

As you will see in the video, you can create die-cut dragonflies in seconds with Thinlits dies and the Big Shot.  The precision plate is also recommended for the detailed dies. There are five thinlit dies in this set.  With a mix of open images and detailed images, these dies can cut detailed die-cuts or frame stamped images. Detailed die includes ejection holes so you can remove the paper easily.

And of course it is a bundle with a fun 10 piece stamp set.  I am excited to share that this bundle will be my Stamp of the Month Kit next month, so stay tune.

#quickdragonflycard #lindabauwin

 This is the card I show you in the video using the Emerald Envy for my main color.  I accented with the In Color Enamel Dots.  Have you given these a try yet?  They are so easy to work with and with the different shapes it just gives some fun detail to your card.

#dragonflythinlits #lindabauwin

This card uses the same technique but this time highlighted with Gold Foil Paper and it look more elegant.  And for the extra bling I added some Gold Sequin Trim

Every time you change the color or the accents you get a totally different look to your card.  Hope you give it a try and share what you come up with.

Now time to check out the video.

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.



Another Merriest Wishes Card Video

#merrywishesbundle #lindabauwin 3 wood

Can't get enough of the Merriest Wishes Bundle.   As I have said before when you first look at the bundle you see Christmas Tags and that is it.  But there is so much more.

This is a card we did at the Make-n-Take Night at the Adventure's in Stamping Convention in Strongsville.  The Merriest Wishes Bundle was not the only big hit.  Everyone loved the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I know it's a mouth full, but what a folder it is.

Stampin' Up! has suggested misting your card stock to soften the fibers of the card stock to get an even deeper impression.  I have not done that as I think it is pretty impressive just by running the card stock through dry.  You do need to remember to only use one of your clear cutting mats because of the thickness of the folder.

#copperfoilsheets #lindabauwin

The Copper Foil Sheet was the main attraction on this card.  Everyone fell in love with the elegance of this paper.  It has been the main attraction with Stampin' Up! too.  The company had to shut off selling this product for awhile, because of the demand, so we could get enough inventory back in.  But I am happy to say it is available again.

The Copper Foil Sheets come in a pack of two 12" x 12" sheets and only cost $4.00.  A real deal.  So don't forget it to add a pack or two to your next order.

Copper Card with Merriest Wishes Bundle

#merrywishesbundle #lindabauwin 2

Today's video I am using the beautiful Copper Foil Paper with the Merry Tag Framelit to make my card.  Even though I am only using the framelits on this card, I highly suggest purchasing this as a bundle.  The stamp set and framelits work so well together.

I also am using the Silver Glimmer Paper for the background to give it extra sparkle.  And the Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine. This is such a value you get a spool of Red Baker's Twine and a spool of Whisper White with a Metallic Thread through it.  Both spools have 25 yards on them and they are only $6.00.
