Ultimate Pink Blog Hop



Welcome to the first ever Ultimate Pink Blog Hop – a collection of ideas from Stampin’ UP! demonstrators all over the globe featuring shades of pink in honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I am participating in this Blog Hop because I have quite a few people in my life who has been touched with Breast Cancer.

My sister and my very good friend are the most recent to be hit by this disease.  My hope is that we can bring more awareness and that more people will participate in helping this cause.

My design today is a handmade Christmas card, seems I have Christmas on my mind! The Stampin’ Up! set is called Embellished Ornaments, and I also used the Thinlits Delicate Ornaments. I’m having two separate classes making Christmas cards and they are so pretty!

I used for the colors Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White and for the ornament I used the Glimmer paper Blushing Bride!  I wish this was a real ornament so I could hang it on my tree this year!


I am in the process of doing more on my blog, I’m changing the name to:

nc demo blog hop freezer paper technique

For this months NC Demo Blog Hop, I have chosen to show you a technique that I am super excited about!

The technique uses Freezer paper, I iron it (shiny side down) onto White Glimmer Paper.  The iron needs to be as hot as it can be, but no steam.  Iron it between towels, so you don’t burn your paper.  But first you need to decide which Thinlit you would like to use to iron onto your paper.  I chose the Hexagon thinlit, because I love the way this thinlit lets the images peek out once I stamp and color the images.

One important part of this technique is that you iron it down until it isn’t pulling up AT ALL, ANYWHERE!  I learned that the hard way, so I’m hoping to save you some frustration. 🙂  Once you make sure it is set, you stamp/color where the freezer paper isn’t ironed down.  The Hexagon thinlit leaves a lot of spaces to do this, but it also shows each and every part of this thinlit!

So, now that I explained it, I will try to describe HOW I made this card.  I stamped the butterfly from the Papillon Potpouri in black between the lines and open spaces.  I then colored it using an Aqua Painter with Cherry Cobbler for the top of the butterflies, and Crushed Curry for the bottom part.  Then I colored the rest of the open spaces not covered by the freezer paper using Pool Party, this way you can really see that I used the Hexagon Thinlit!  Once finished with all my coloring I then carefully peeled off the Freezer Paper to reveal my Gorgeous card!  It turned out better on this card, than it did in my mind the night before when I couldn’t get to sleep because I thought this up and should have been sleeping!  Do you ever lay in bed thinking up your next stamp project?  I do it all the time!


After making this card, I wanted to do another freezer paper card, wouldn’t you?!

I used the Floral Thinlits, cut out one of the smaller flowers, ironed it onto the Glimmer Paper, making sure that all edges were down!  I then colored the outside edges of the cardstock that wasn’t covered by the Freezer paper, I used Elegant Eggplant and .  I then peeled off the Freezer Paper and then used the next size flower thinlit to cut around the colored outside of the paper, and the smallest flower and cut out the center. If you look at this card, the white in the middle is where the Freezer Paper was.  The Elegant Eggplant underneath is the 2nd from the biggest thinlit I just cut the cardstock to be the same width as one of the flower petals, but I wanted to just have it stick out underneath, I hope this makes sense!  If you have this set, just pick up this thinlit, or look in the catalog, and hopefully it will be more clear on how I made the piece that has the candy dots on it.  The flower part is popped up with Dimensionals so the flower gem in the middle is below the middle flower.


The White cardstock and the Black are fun through the Big Shot using the Embossing Folder , I glued them together and then ran it through, if you enlarge this picture you can see the detail!

I absolutely LOVE this technique, and I hope you give it a try!  I made a Periscope video which you can go see by clicking on the word Periscope and at Katch.me

Or go to my twitter and look for Lisa Tedder.  I’m sure all this will be much clearer (including my troubles getting used to doing Periscope…..but I didn’t make any mistakes so you can really see how it is done!), it’s not a hard technique, just hard to describe, which is why I made a video!!  I would love it if you would  subscribe to my Periscope and you will get to see more techniques!!

Thank you for stopping by!  Hope to see you again!!

NC Demo Blog Hop – Tree Bark Technique

It’s time for the NC Demo Blog Hop again!  If you didn’t attend last month, you won’t want to miss this month!

I LOVE doing techniques!  Today I have made two cards that use the Tree Bark technique!

I have made a Periscope, if you want to see how I made it, I think if you look me up on Twitter it will show you where to find it on Katch.me!  But for those who don’t have Periscope I will try and explain it with words!

You start off with either Soft Suede CS (2nd card) or with Sahara Sand (1st card).  You then stamp the Hardwood stamp using the color of your cardstock, I want it to be subtle so it looks more realistic.  I then rub direct to paper the Chocolate Chip ink pad VERY softly, using only the corner of the pad and only in a few places, I want that also to be subtle.

Then you will tear towards you an uneven amount of strips, 1st card has 5 and my 2nd has 3.  Make sure you tear TOWARDS yourself, so you have an uneven edge and it is able to be sponged and manipulated.  Then you will sponge the rough edges with the Chocolate Chip ink and then go over it again, with the same ink/sponge and sponge up, so the edge curls up.

You will do this to all your pieces…….this will make the edges stand up from the card.  Once you have that done, you will adhere your pieces so they match up with the edges standing up.  You can see this on both of my cards.

Once it is all adhered, you will want to LIGHTLY go over the raised edges with Versamark, then Gold Embossing Powder.  Heat it, and you will have this really pretty edge to each torn piece!

I used an In Color for the 1st card: Mint Macaron for the leaves and base, then embossed the flowers gold. The stamp set is: Number of Years.

The 2nd card uses Pool Party and the Stamp set: Pedal Pusher.  BOTH cards utilizes the Gold Foil Sheets since I wanted to bring out the Gold EP.



I really loved making these cards, and I would love to see if you make any using this technique!  Just share with me so everyone can see your pretty Tree Bark Cards!

PCCC #183

I decided that I am going to start doing more with this blog!! Hopefully you will be as excited as I am!
To start with I decided to do a Challenge that the Paper Craft Crew is doing and that is the Color Challenge!!
Here is the challenge I worked on today:

My card uses one of my favorites from the Occasions Catalog from Stampin’ Up!, it is called Picture Perfect.  My Dad used to feed the Hummingbirds in our front yard, it was very full of plants that framed our front walk very nicely.

He would stand there for quite a while and when the Hummingbirds would come to drink from the feeder, he would put his finger under the feeder for the birds to rest on.  It took a while for them to grow comfortable with him there, but he finally got them to land on his finger!!  I would watch from the window and wish I was the one out there!

Ever since then I have had a LOVE for Humminbirds!  So that leads me to this post, I wanted to use the stamp set Picture Perfect since it has them!

Here is my card:


The base of the card is Blackberry Bliss, the next layer is Smoky Slate with Marina Mist which I ran through the Big Shot using the embossing folder Zig Zag.  I then brayered the Tea Lace Paper Doilies using Old Olive ink, I then put versamark over that and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.  I like how it’s shiny, don’t you?

I cut out a thinlit of Blackberry Bliss using the Deco Labels, colored a piece of Dazzling Diamond Glitter Paper using the Blackberry Bliss, then set it using clear embossing powder after running over it with my Versamark again.

Stamped the Hummingbird using Blackberry Bliss, Smoky Slate and Old Olive. put a Rhiinestone for his eye, and then for the coup de grace (sp?) I went over the entire image with the Wink of Stella!!  It is so pretty and shiny in person!  And the texture makes you want to fell it!

So, I am done with my first Challenge in a LONG time!  How do you think I did?  I’m excited for next time!  I wonder how I’ll do in the Sketch Challenge!

Make sure you check back in to see how I did, and I would love some feedback on what you like or don’t like!

Thanks for stopping by!

Floating Re-Inkers NC Demo Blog Hop!




Thank you for visiting me!  I know you just came from Pam Staples  blog, Isn’t it great!!

Each month NC Demos is going to be hosting a Blog Hop using current Stampin’ Up! product the last day of each month at 8:00 p.m.!  So, get ready to see a lot of great cards/projects!

Before the end of the month I will be doing  a live video on Periscope (making the card you’ll see here on our blog hop!) where you can ask me quesions AS I’m doing my card!  You must download the app to be notified and you will have to follow me to see when I am on!

Periscope doesn’t keep the videos long, but I have it to where it automatically saves it for a few days on Katch.me

Mine is called Floating Re-Inkers, I stamped my image (Rose Wonder, Big Rose with leaves) on Shimmer White Paper using Versamark and then white Embossing Powder.

I then spritzed my Shimmer White cardstock (this holds up better with the water than our white cardstock.  Plus it gives a Great Sparkly look!!  After spritzing with water, I dropped my colors of re-inkers that I wanted to use:  Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise, for the flower, and Mint Macaron and Cucumber Crush for the leaves.

I cut out the flower, and then the leaves seperate, so I could place the leaves closer into the flower, since I wanted my flower to be in the middle of my card!

I popped up the flower after putting some of that GORGEOUS Gold thread behind it (you should be able to see it peaking behind.  I also wrapped the Gold Thread around the two side pieces (Brights DSP), as I said……I LOVE that Gold Thread!!)

Since I used the Brights Collection for the Flower, I used the sequins to highlight the gold threading on the side! I put a teeny tiny pearl in each sequin, and stamped the saying from Something To Say stamp set!

Hope you like it!!

Come back to our Blog Hop next month! Now you will go to Francis Wagner blog, Enjoy!!

Puffy Vellum

If you happened to see my Periscope video on this technique, I apologize that i didn’t get my orientation right, but it was my first one, so I’m happy I got it done, didn’t stutter and it looked good, even though you’ll get a crick in your neck watching it!

I promise next time I will get it right!!  Here is the card I was working on.  The white flower is Vellum and I used my  score tool from my stampin’ score board.  It not only makes the vellum stick out on the other side, but it makes it white!!

You can’t see the clear Wink of Stella on it, it’s so pretty!!  I also added the gold thread behind the flower and behind the sentiment that I cut out with my Big Shot and Lots of Labels thinlits!



Here is the side so you can see the flower is puffy:


It’s hard to see,but WOW when you feel it, there is so much texture and interest on your card!

Keep an eye on my next Periscope, and if you leave a comment I will put you in a drawing for a free SAB stamp set, the drawing will be at the end of February, so you’ll have plenty of times to leave comments!!

I love stamping, it gives me so much pleasure.

Working for a company like Stampin’ Up! lets me get PAID for doing something I love to do!

There is a sale right now during Sale-a-Bration, if you decide to join the SU! team and mine (LETs Stamp!) you get for your $99……..$150 worth of product PLUS the shipping is free!!  March is the last month of SAB and your chance to get sooooooo many goodies for so little!

I would love to have you join my team and me when we share fabulous creations and have meetings!  I try to skype with the down line that is not living close enough.

I’m not very savvy with all the technical things, but I usually just have to ask one of my kids!!  🙂

Go take a look at my Periscope, look under Puffy Vellum or my name Lisa Tedder, or Lisa E Tedder, it won’t be there but 24 – 48 hours!!

Thanks for visiting, hope to see you next time!

Advent Calendar

Advent Calendar resized

I made this Advent Calendar to give as Christmas Presents this year!  Every year I come up with something that people can hang onto for Generations!  To give you an idea of the size it is 9 1/2″ wide, and 17″ tall.

This was a really fun one to make, and surprisingly very easy, 4 +/- hours to make (which is why you will want to be with others, MUCH more fun!!).

I am having a stamping Retreat on Dec. 5th if anyone wants to come and make this!  The supplies are around $50.00,and you will take home the ‘left-overs’, I would have to go out and buy the base (which is a round box), and I put burlap ribbon on it to make it look more like a’tree’.

My husband is catering this event, and we will have all kinds of cookies and treats, plus door prizes!!  If you don’t want any of the above mentioned (food, door prizes) the cost will be $65.00.

You MUST RSVP and Pay by the 23rd to let me get the supplies back in time.  I hope you decide you want to join me in making this wonderful gift!  You DON’T have to give it away!

It is so much more fun to do a project when you have music playing, cookies to eat and friends to talk to!

So?  What do you say?  Are you in?  Space is limited, so don’t wait to hold your place!!

August Paper Pumpkin

August 2015 PP

I played with my Paper Pumpkin today!!  It was so much fun, I just went to the Pinterest Paper Pumpkin site after I did the handmade cards and box straight from the PP directions, I wanted to do some different ones, and this site helped me pick out what I wanted to do!

The SU! card in the middle uses the new Gold 3/8″ glitter ribbon #139614 from the Holiday Catalog (2015) .  I cut up one of the cards with the stripes so I could get more from that one sheet (since it is printed front and back, I can make a lot of cards by piecing it.)

I also paired the saying with the Metallic Foil Doilies #138392 behind it to make it POP!  Adding dimensionals underneath really made it stand out!

The card to the right of the middle I used the cut up piece (from the middle card) and layered it onto Gold Foil Sheets #132622, and used the ribbon from the kit I was inspired by one of the cards on the site listed above.

Don’t forget to take advantage of the 1/2 off deal that Stampin’ Up! is offering now until the 10th of September, you get TWO months for the price of one!!  Just go to PaperPumpkin.com site and sign up!  Just remember to put me down as your Demonstrator!

You can click on each photo and see them closer.  Notice the hand stamped Winter card, hopefully you can see the shimmer!  This uses my own concoction from SU! materials!

This is a Pre-Pay class, I want to have the class by the middle of September so the latest you can register is the first week in September!

This was really fun to make, I plan on giving this away for a present!

SU! Demo


Monday Creative Blog Hop!

Welcome back to the Blog Hop!

Today I am going to be sharing with you two of my SU! handmade cards that I have done this week!

The first one is one using the White Simply Pressed Clay along with the Alphanumeric Mold, the Clay is in the Big Catalog but you’ll find the Alphabet/numeric mold in the seasonal catalog (pg 32 #137854, for only $9.95), My friend had the mold so I let her do the letters for me, and once they were dry I cut them (there is a little clay around the letter if you did it right, that you can cut away the excess so the image is really bold!), then I colored them using our SU! Write Markers in these colors:  Daffodil Delight, Blackberry Bliss, Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point, Blushing Bride and Rose Red.  I used these colors because those are the colors in the DSP I used – Painted Blooms.

This way as usual with Stampin’ Up! everything coordinates!  After I applied the color I used Fast Fuse on the back of each letter and adhered it to my DSP.  If you haven’t used Fast Fuse, you HAVE to try it #129026, page 204 in the Catalog!  It’s the best adhesive that I have tried that works with EVERYTHING!

Once adhered to the Designer Paper, I went over the letters with my Versamark Pad, just pouncing over top of them, saying to myself…..boink, boink, boink……must be watching too may Disney Movies!  🙂

I then sprinkled Crystal Clear Embossing Powder over where I pounced the Versamark and then tipped the card over and flicked off the extra powder, then I heat set it and WOW!, it made the letters look like they were Ceramic!  Hopefully you can see that in the picture


I stamped the saying “@numberonemother” from the SU! set @SoSocial, LOVE this stamp set, it has just about everything you would EVER need to say in it!  I stamped that saying using Rose Red ink onto Blushing Bride paper and then made it pop out of the side between the Black paper and the Pacific Point Paper.  I also stamped the Chevron stamp using Rose Red ink onto Rose Red paper!  All Coordinating, and a very awesome card to send to your Mom, or a Mom to be!!

The next project I did was almost COMPLETELY Cased (Copy And Stamp Everything) from Sandy at:  StampWithSandy.com I really loved the simplicity of this card, plus it has layers, and diamonds (Rhinestones in SU! speak, but I like calling them DIAMONDS!).  the only thing I changed was I stamped my saying “Just Sayin'” from the Crazy About You stamp set onto Baked Brown Sugar (Sandy used Crumb Cake I think) then cut it out with the arrow from On Film thinlits, and topped it off with the Hello You Thinlits.  I love arrows!  They go with this saying perfectly!!

Crazy About you

I stamped the flower in Cherry Cobbler and stamped off the leaves using Baked Brown Sugar, then Put the white and the Bermuda Bay on top of the Base of Baked Brown Sugar!  I wrapped the white Bakers Twine around the white, I don’t like it when the ribbon shows on the inside.  This was a fun simple card that uses my thinlits (which I LOVE!) and I thank Sandy for the inspiration!

That’s it for me today, it was a long week for me!

Hope your day goes great and hopefully I’ll see you back next week…….maybe with some Blog Candy perhaps, hmmmmm?

Come back again!
