Making a Sunset

I LOVE sunsets, don’t you? I wanted to make one that was easy but still be stunning…….at least I think so, hopefully you do too!!

I have a video on YouTube walking you through this technique, I hope you check it out here. You can also shop for the products you see in this post and on my videos at my Online Store!

Making a Desert scene was my final one, I had to make FOUR cards with Sunsets! Just couldn’t help myself!

The first one is one I posted on my FaceBook page Let’s Stamp!

It features a lighthouse and this is where my Sunset journey started! I saw a video by Tina Zinck on making sunsets, so off I went!

This was so fun and easy (Thanks Tina!!) That I didn’t stop there! But first let me tell you what I used to make this card!

Stamps: High Tide #143006
Inks: Cherry Cobbler #126966, Watermelon Wonder #138323, Night of Navy #126970, Perfect Plum #126963, So Saffron #126957, Crushed Curry #131173, Crumb Cake #126975, Early Espresso #126974, Chocolate Chip #126979, Whisper White #101731, Momento Black #132708, Versamark #102283 and Sahara Sand #126976
Paper: Cherry Cobbler #119685 – 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, Whisper White #100730 – 4″ X 5 1/4″
Misc: Project Life Corner Rounder #135346, Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine #123125, 1″ circle punch #119868, Gold Embossing Powder #133457

Now, on to the next Sunset Card! This one uses the Lift Me Up Stamp set, but uses the same techniques as on my video.

I love how the Ocean/water came out on this one! This uses the same color palate as the card above. Here are the dimensions for the card stock, since everything else is the same:

Cherry Cobbler 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, Crushed Curry #131199 – 3 1/4″ X 4 3/4″, Cherry Cobbler- 3 1/8″ X 4 3/4″, Whisper White – 3″ X 4 3/4″ and 2″ X 1 1/2″ (for the sentiment).
I also used Dazzling Diamonds #133751, and Fine Tip Glue to make the Dazzling Diamonds stick #138309

What else can I make with this Sunset? I just HAD to make more!! So I pulled out my Trusty set of Lovely as a Tree!!! Love this set!
Again, I used the same colors, just used the Stamp set Sending Thoughts #142965 from the Occasions Catty 2017 and I also used the FREE with Sale-A-Bration ribbon Metallic Gold #143601!

Here are those dimensions:
Elegant Eggplant #105126 – 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, Whisper White 5 1/4″ X 4″
The Elegant Eggplant Ink # is 126969, Gold Embossing Powder #133457

And now for the Final Card, this is the one I made the video on!!

I had so much fun making this one!! Like I said at the Beginning, I LOVE sunsets, by this time you might just believe me! hahahaha

The supplies for this card are:

Stamps: Birthday Fiesta #141500, Thoughts and Prayers #127805, Here for You # 142164
Inks: Watermelon Wonder #138323, Night of Navy #126970, Crushed Curry #131173, Crumb Cake #126975, Early Espresso #126974, Chocolate Chip #126979, Momento Black #132708, Night of Navy #126970, Black Marker
Paper: Night of Navy #100867 – 5 1/2″ X 4 1/2″ , Watermelon Wonder #138334 – 5 1/4″ X 4″, Whisper White #100730 5″ X 3 3/4″
Misc: Sponges #141337, Big Shot #143263, Up & Away thinlits #142748

If you love these colors together, make sure and stock up on Watermelon Wonder!! It’s one of the In Colors that is retiring this year ūüôĀ This is a GREAT color to make your sunsets with! The other reds are either too red, or too dark. It’s doable, but this one just makes it easy!

I hope you enjoyed all my Sunsets, and that you will want to visit me again! I will be making more videos, I am really enjoying it! Make sure you sign up on my YouTube page to be notified when I have another one coming out!

Window Sheet Fine Tip Glue Watercolor

Today I am showing another Technique that I thought of. ¬†NOT sure if it’s been done before, but I can honestly say that I didn’t see it anywhere!

I did a YouTube Video which you can find HERE!

I love having Window Sheets on my cards. ¬†It adds a lot of shine and interest! ¬†I stamped the balloon from Lift me Up, a¬†stamp set by Stampin’ Up!, using Black archival ink. ¬†I make sure that the pad is re-inked so when I stamp it stays wet longer. ¬†I emboss the images (I stamped the balloon three times, making sure they weren’t even) using Clear Embossing Powder. ¬†Make sure that you get all excess powder off the window sheet using your hands or a brush.

Once it is heat set, I came in with markers: ¬†Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango and Crushed Curry. ¬†I colored the areas, making sure that the balloons didn’t match each other. ¬†Once all three colors were on , I went over each balloon with the Fine Tip Glue, make sure you stay within the lines, it will show on the front if you go over.

I embossed the Bermuda Bay cardstock under the Window Sheet using the Seaside folder from Stampin’ Up! ¬†These colors really look good together, don’t you think?

Set aside to dry (it takes around 3 hours to dry, but I let mine dry overnight). ¬†Once dry you can put the ‘green glue’ from SU! along the lines of the balloons, this works extremely well, don’t put a lot on, so when you lay it down ¬†on the Bermuda Bay Embossed piece, it doesn’t bleed past the edges.

I used the Oval Framelits with the scalloped edge to simulate clouds, and sponged it with more Crushed Curry Ink to add dimension.

The clouds are in the Up and Away thinlits that go with this stampset!  I really love how this card shows so much dimension and interest!

 

Here are the dimensions for the card!

Pacific Point: ¬†8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″
Basic Black: ¬†5 1/8″ X ¬†3 ¬†5/8″
Bermuda Bay/Window Sheet: 4 7/8″ X ¬†3 3/8″
Scraps of White for Clouds
Scrap of Daffodil Delight for sentiment

Stamp sets:

Lift Me Up

Inks:

Bermuda Bay
Basic Black Archival
Markers:  Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry

Accessories:

Up and Away thinlits
Window Sheet
Big Shot
Seaside embossing folder
Fine Tip Glue
Sponges for clouds
Oval framelits for sentiment
Dimensionals for under sentiment and clouds
Mono liquid adhesive (green bottle)

I hope you try this technique out! ¬†I really had fun making it! ¬†The colors are really striking in person!! ¬†And don’t forget to watch the video using the link here!

Unconventional uses for Stampin’ Up! Products!

I have finished my FIRST YouTube video in quite a while! ¬†It’s been years! ¬†I was doing two videos every Tuesday for 3 years! ¬†They are over on Vimeo. ¬†But you can check out my video for this card here.

There are THREE things that I used differently, I’ll put a number by the line where they are, just in case you don’t want to read everything!

I did quite a few things with several products, but switched up their USUAL purpose!  I LOVE coming up with new ideas, especially finding more than one way to use something!!  That just means more bang for our BUCK!

  1. ¬†For this card I used the Hardwood stamp set as a ‘door’ for my keyhole to look authentic. ¬† ¬†For the Keyhole, I put two framelits together. ¬†The 2nd from the outside of the Lots of Labels and the snowman from Snow Friends.

 

BUT for a keyhole I turned it upside down! ¬†Plus, on the card, I put the sentiment over the bottom of the keyhole to ‘hide’ the snowman! ¬†I hope you can see the keyhole and NOT the snowman!!

Then I cut out out the middle of the white cardstock so you can ‘peek’ inside! ¬†For that I used the 3rd framelit from outside in the Lots of Labels so the ‘keyhole’ can stack flat and still be adhered to the front.

2. For the screws on the front of the door around the keyhole I used the screws from the Urban Underground Embellishments (in the Occasions mini), BUT I colored them with the Gold Wink of Stella and immediately embossed with clear, since the color would just wipe off otherwise. ¬†This way I am all coordinating!! I also used the gold embossing powder to emboss the key so you (hopefully) will figure out that it’s a key hole!! ¬†Here is close up of the screws being all gold:

The sentiment is from Balloon Adventure and it says:  Open Me Already!  hahahaha  I got such a kick out of making this card!  Can you tell?
I attached (after fussy cutting the key) the gold sequin ribbon to the key and popped it up on the front of the card!!

3. To make the Gold line under the Sentiment I used the Tear & Tape under, made sure it was stuck down well, then tore off top, poured Gold Embossing Powder on it, and heat it! ¬†And it embossed! ¬†Didn’t know that would happen! ¬†Just thought I would try it. ¬†LOVE it, so glad I tried!

Ok, for the inside, I stamped the girl from Beautiful You, lining her up so she would peek through in the front.  I stamped her with Early Espresso, then embossed with Clear EP (I tend to do that with SU! ink) because it stays wet long enough so I can do it!  And it adds so much texture to your card!

For her dress I stamped it with versamark, then poured Heat & Stick onto the Versamark, heat it only until it gets shiny NO LONGER, or it will loose it’s stickiness! ¬†Once that is done, I poured Gold Glitter onto the Heat & Stick, shook off excess, then heat it ONLY FOR A FEW SECONDS! ¬†This way it really adheres to it! ¬†Watch the video you will see how I rub on it and it stays!! ¬†I don’t use Heat & Stick very often, but I really love how great it works, think I’ll use it more often now! ¬†Here is the inside of the card:

I ran some of the Tear & Tape along bottom and put some more Gold Embossing Powder on it and heat it! ¬†Love how it really adds some shine to the card! ¬†Stamped my two inside sentiments ‘It’s your Birthday’ at the top and ‘Let’s celebrate!’ at the bottom, both in Early Espresso and embossed with clear!

She is so pretty in the gold dress!!  I hope you liked my Unconventional ways of using  product!  Please leave me some feedback on what you think!

And just in case you didn’t get a good picture of the card, here it is again:

I really enjoyed doing this card, I saw the framelits put together like this on Pinterest, but she was making a Snowman Shaker Card. ¬†I saw it, and immediately saw the keyhole and not the snowman! ¬†That’s so weird. ¬†I guess my mind works in mysterious ways!! ¬†LOL

I hope to be making more blog posts and videos, so subscribe and hopefully you’ll catch them!

NC Demo Blog Hop – Progressing Christmas Page

If you just came from Pam’s page, welcome to my page! If you started at mine, click on the names below to see what others have done for the Holidays! ¬†Enjoy!

Today I am showing you how I go about doing a Scrapbook Page by showing that you can make ANY size page depending what you like.  I started off making a 6 X 6 page:

6x6page

The red block is for putting your picture in. ¬†I LOVE handmade scrapbook pages! ¬†And the Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Christmas Magic is one of my FAVES! ¬†It’s so pretty and versatile! ¬†I made tags too with the sets I used for this page, check it out at the end of this post!

For the next part of the page I made an 8 1/2″ x 11″ page and placed the 6 x 6 on that one.

middlepage

The White under the Santa and next to the snowman is where You put the picture on this part! ¬†I used the Santa from the Stamp set Cookie Cutter Christmas. ¬†This was so much fun to do! I stamped it on Vellum using Black ink and embossed it with clear. ¬†I then turned it over and colored the back, making sure I shadowed it. ¬†I put it on my Stampin’ Pierce Mat and with my embossing tool from the Simply Scored Scoring Tool upside down (embossed side down) and rubbed the embossing tool over all the white pieces. ¬†This raises the vellum and makes it white. ¬†REALLY WHITE! ¬†It is so much fun to do this technique and looks great on sails and other stamped images that need to be white and fluffy.

santainside

This is what it looks like before you turn it over.

santafinal

Once you turn it over you can really see the white is white!  I did NOT use ANY ink on the white parts, that is all because the vellum changes to white when you press on it with the embossing tool.

Now, here is the finished page on 12 x 12 :

beckypagedone

I die cut the ‘Merry’ from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits. ¬†I also stamped the bells from the Christmas Magic stamp set and embossed it with Silver Embossing Powder, then using my blender pen colored in Smoky Slate to ‘look like’ silver. ¬†But first I stamped the Swirl from Star of Light and ‘hung’ my bells from that.

If you notice under the snowman, I have three bells on white bakers twine, this is so they won’t fall off (my daughter is going to frame this with her Christmas pictures on the wall), and I wanted to make sure that no matter what they wouldn’t fall off. ¬†I made the white twine go through the paper and I tied a ¬†knot in the back.

This page, in person, is so pretty!! ¬†Have you ever made something and are impressed with how much better it came out than you thought it would when you started?!! ¬† That’s how I feel, I hope you like it too!!

Now, here are the tags that I made to go along with this gift:

I love the simple yet elegant feel of these!  Which is perfect for something that you will want to make a lot of!  I used the Scallop Tag Topper for all of these, the middle one is just a little bit shorter than the other two.

NC Demo Blog Hop – Stuck Santa

You just came from Laurie Meier’s blog, she’s great isn’t she? ¬†I am Thankful for Melissa Kerman for giving me inspiration!

I got this idea from her¬†at our NC Demo Quarterly (see below for details). ¬†We had a tag swap, which stupidly I didn’t join. ¬†:-/ ¬†Live and learn, right? ¬†Well, she made this awesome tag with Santa’s legs coming out of the chimney. ¬†Here is a picture of it:p1120027

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wanted to make a card from the tag, and this is what I came up with:

santachimney2

I used the Heart punch (which I didn’t know Melissa used, until I really looked at the boots, and was AMAZED!) and she free cut the pants, so I did that too. The Chimney I changed up some, I added some roof so I could put ‘snow’ on the edges. ¬†I used the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Paper and cut thin wavy strips to give the snow effect. ¬†I stamped the background with the Snowflake stamp from the Stampin’ Up! set called Snow Place. ¬†The Jolly is a framelit from Christmas Greetings. ¬†LOVE how I used a white gel pen to put ‘snow’ on the word, then sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds on top. ¬†In person this card looks so sparkly and pretty!!

The ribbon is the Whisper White Mini PomPom Trim!  Even though this is all Christmas I got everything out of the current SU! catalog!

This is a list of everything I used:

Stamp sets: Snow Place #139738

Inks:

Whisper White #101731

Paper:

Night of Navy 5″ X 3 3/4″
Real Red 5 1/4″ X ¬†4″ and scraps
Whisper White ¬†8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″
Basic Gray 3 3/4″ X 5″ ¬†(I ran this through the Embossing Folder and got 2 chimneys out of one piece of paper, you have to go from each side seperately)
Basic Black Scraps

Accessories:

1 1/4″ circle punch
Whisper White Mini PomPom Trim
Dazzling Diamonds
Dazzling Diamond Glitter Paper
Heart Punch
Brick Wall Embossing folder

Ultimate Pink Blog Hop

ultimatepinkheader

 

Welcome to the first ever Ultimate Pink Blog Hop¬†‚Äď a collection of ideas from Stampin‚Äô 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!

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. ūüôā ¬†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!

Freezer-Paper-Technique1

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.

freezer-paper-technique2

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:
PCCCS163-006-300x300

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:

Pccc183-Picture-perfect

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!

 

 

Floating-Re-Inkers

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!!
