Sponged Brayer Background Video

#spongebrayervideo #lindabauwin

In today's video you are going to learn how to sponge brayer this beautiful beach scene.  The Sponge Brayers are the best kept secret in the Stampin' Up! Catalog.   We use to have rubber brayers and I could never get a nice smooth background with them.   The sponge brayers are different and very inexpensive and easy to use.

My video today was inspired by a card I got in a card swap from a dear friend Kim Peck.  Kim's card has much softer colors then my card, showing how versatile these brayers can be.

#kimpeck #lindabauwin

Kim and I both used the same color Classic Ink Pads: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Crushed Curry and Peekaboo Peach but we still got such different looks because of the amount of ink we put on our cards.

I used the High Tide Stamp Set, where Kim used the Colorful Seasons.  We both used the adorable chair from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, which you can get with the Colorful Season as a Bundle.

By using the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and the Wink of Stella you get a beautiful shimmering sun.

Video With Fun New Product

#embossingpaste #lindabauwin

Check out this fun card for today's video.  It using the Embossing Paste in a little different way then was shared in the video that I shared by Stampin' Up a couple days ago.  Did you miss that video?  Here is the link if you did.

I used the words that come from the stamp set Ribbon of Courage.  Love the words.  I used the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. the Embossing Paste along with the Palette Knives to create the bricks.  I am in love with the Embossing Paste.   It gives such a cool look to the background of your cards.

Like I said, I used a different method to color my embossing paste in today's video, make sure you check it out at the bottom of this post..

I also used the Move Me Thinlits, and this time I did use the butterfly.  It is a two-step thinlit, where you can use it as a solid cut-out or cut out the detail in the center.  These Thinlits Dies match the You Move Stamp Set.  And is part of the You Move Me Bundle.  I shared a creative fold card on Tuesday using other dies from this bundle.  If you missed here is the link.

Sunset Galaxy Sky Stamping Technique

#sunsetgalaxyskytechnique #lindabauwin

Today's Video features a Stamping Technique called Sunset Galaxy Sky Technique.  This technique was shared during my TEAM Technique Challenge by a member of my Stamp Family Mary Ann Rossiter.

Mary Ann was one of the winners of my TEAM Challenge and she received a Gift Certificate, which she is choosing to hold on to until the release of the New Catalog, next Thursday June 1st.

Here is the card that I showcased in today's video.  I followed Mary Ann's directions but I chose to use the following colors when I sponged with the daubers.

As you will see in the video, burnishing these colors into Whisper White Card Stock gives the appearance of the colors in a sunset.  Then I used the Aqua Painter to spatter some water.  Then I followed that step by stamping with the Timeless Textures Stamp Set with the White Craft Stampin' Ink.

This is such a stunning look.  I used the oldest stamp set I had to stamp the trees, Lovely as a Tree.   This stamp set has been around long than me.  It is still a go to stamp set.  Do you have it in your collection?

Now watch the video for more tips.  Make sure you join my as I start the countdown to the new catalog as I showcase some of the fun new products with video.

Video Showing Bokeh Technique

#stamptechniques #linabauwin

I received this beautiful card in my recent Technique Challenge to demonstrators that are in my Stamp Family.  They were to send me a card using a stamp technique and they got a chance to earn $75, $50 or $25 Stampin' Up! Gift Certificate.

This card done with the Bokeh Technique and was submitted by Joyce Coppens.  Below I have done a video on how the technique is done.  Here is the card I did.  It is not as vibrant as Joyce's.  You get a different look with different colors.

#bokeh #lindabauwin

The sizes of Card Sock I used were:

  • 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Whisper White Card Stock
  • 4" x 5 1/4" Rich Razzleberry Card Stock
  • 3 3/4" x 5" Whisper White.

To do this technique you select a few coordinating colors of ink and sponge or daub on a Whisper White Card Stock and cover it all.

Next you punch out different sizes of circles out of a scrap piece of card stock and you will use this as a stencil

Using the piece of Whisper White Card Stock that you sponged the coordinating colors on, place the scrap piece with circles punched out over top and daub or sponge on Whisper White Craft Ink.

Allow the Whisper White Ink to dry.  This will take awhile since it is a pigment ink.  You may wish to use your heat gun to dry quicker.

Then you will want to stamp over and embellish.

I used Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink to stamp the Birthday Blooms flower, and I added a Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Bee cut out with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies.

Video Showing Negative Image Stamping With Celebrations Duo Folders

The Celebrations Duo Textured Impressions Embossing Folders were introduced in the Occasion Catalog.  These folders create debossed impressions.

#celebrationsduoembossingfolders #lindabauwin

They work great with the Happy Celebrations Stamp Set to create cards like this one.

#happycelebrationbundle #lindabauwin

As you stamp over the debossed impressions, the ink doesn't go into the debossed area.  Well I learned a new way to use these folders, and you can get the tips on today's video.

I took part in one of Sherrie Robinson's Famous Shoe Box Swaps while at OnStage in Richmond, Virginia.  And I got to learn a this technique that I am calling Negative Imagine Stamping with the Happy Celebrations Stamp Set.  The card was designed by Cyndy Ponczek, and I so appreciate her sharing this technique.  

Check Out the totally different look by doing this technique.

#negativeimagestamping #lindabauwin

Check out how the word is darker ink instead of the white.  Watch the video to learn how to do this awesome technique.

The Confetti Embossing Folder, 5/8" Mini Striped Ribbon and the Party Animal Designer Series Paper were all used on this card.  If you like these accessories, you need to hurry before they are gone, as they are on the retiring list of products.  These products are all on sale at some pretty amazing sale prices.  Check out the Retiring Items in the links posted below.

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.

How To Add Color To Your Stamps

#cooltreatsbundle #lindabauwin

Today's video is a quick tip on how to add color to your stamps to make a word jump out.  I used the fun Bundle Cool Treats, found in the Occasions Catalog.  This bundle has the stamp set, called Cool Treats, that has 36 photopolymer stamps and a set of 17 matching framelit dies, in the Frozen Treat collection.

I used the new Lace Doilies for accent, along with Silver Foil for the spoon, and Very Vanilla, Blushing Bride and Early Espresso Card Stock to build my dish of ice cream.

The sizes of card stock I used for this card are:

I also used the Stitches Framelits Dies.  You can't find these dies in a catalog, as they are an early release.  I think they add so much to a card.  And match the Layering Oval, Squares and Circles Framelits.  You really get a lot of bang for your buck with these framelits.

Speaking of bang for your buck.  Why don't you give Stampin' Up! a Test Drive and purchase the Ultimate Bundle the Starter Kit?  This is the best time of the year to join Stampin' Up! and see what it's all about.  Not only will you get up to $251 worth of product for just $99, plus free shipping, you will get a discount on your future purchases.   That means product from the new catalog.  Not to mention you will be the first to see the new product.

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"
