I had a class yesterday and we made three cards, one of which I am going to share with you today! I was inspired by Priscilla Ivler. I LOVE getting ideas from others and tweaking it a bit!
Here is the card we made:
Isn’t it stunning?!! It’s not a ‘hard’ card, you just have to work on getting the thinlit to let go of the paper without ripping it. My Die Brush has seen better days and the bristles are falling out! Yay! We get a new one in the NEW catalog!!
Here is the inside:
Everyone at class loved it! And in person it is even prettier than here! I know it’s hard to believe!
This is going to be a quick post today, if you want the dimensions just let me know and I will send them to you!
I was inspired by Daniela Hödl when I made this card! She made this stunning card:
Since I had to translate her blog I wasn’t able to see what size the original was. I didn’t do the entire part that she did, but when I do a scrapbook page this is what I want!!
So, here’s mine:
And the inside:
Ok, I said I was inspired, but I ended up doing it totally different! BUT now I have the other one on my computer to do another time! 🙂
I added pearls to some of the front, they are on the outside of the Medallion and in the middle and right smack dab in the center! It’s hard to see in my picture…….
I used 2 of the New In Colors Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst. For the Berry Burst, I stamped on scrap THEN on my card (this is called stamped off), this gives the Berry two different hues!
The ribbon is #144135, so on June 1st you can order it! Hostess code for this month is: 97H62RVK IF you order from me, I will send you a NEW Catalog! Only US citizens can order from me, so if you need a recommendation from me, I know of a few that might be around you!
The stamp set is: Eastern Beauty #143675
And the Thinlits are Eastern Medallions #143725
Again, if you order from me, I will send you a free Catty! PLUS a special something in the mail!
ONE entire package of this Beautiful Glitter Paper, plus MOST of another one! And if that’s not enough, I have some cutouts that I am sending plus a card that I made using this!

For the last week and a half I have been SICK! I’m on the mend so thought I would bring you a new Card from the SU! stamp set called At Home With You! This is another very versatile stamp set! You can do Birthday’s, thank you, Christmas, Fall and today I am doing a Surprise! Birthday card!
For the windows in the door I wanted to show you a Technique that I came up with! It was quite by accident, but I will take it!! I LOVE techniques and am always trying new things! Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t AND SOMETIMES I get surprised! LOVE when that happens!
I wanted to try different ways of using the Fine Tip Glue Pen and wanted to see what would happen if I colored on a Window Sheet with a Marker and then laid down a nice shallow layer of glue over it……….and OMGoodness!! The glue didn’t make the ink from the marker brighter which is what I ‘thought’ it would do, it MARBLED it! Woot! Woot!! I let it dry and it came out so pretty!! Here is a picture:
Isn’t it pretty!!?? This isn’t the one I used for this post, but I forgot to take a picture of the one I used. The one above WAS for a project that I will be putting on another blog where I will be competing for the best cards……….I ended up NOT using the one above ’cause gosh darnit, I got impatient (yes! I know you are surprised!! NOT!!) and I touched it! Well, Poo!! So, I did another one, and used two colors and I put the glue on another way and it came out even better!!!! So, Now I am not so upset that I got impatient! LOL I WILL ‘try’ to be patient with the one that is drying at this moment. Cross fingers!!
On to the card!! Squirrel!! Sheesh! Reign me in! I wanted to use Cherry Cobbler because I have neglected that poor color lately and decided that I needed to use it! I stamped the door image in Versamark and then heat embossed it with Silver Embossing Powder. Silver goes really well with Cherry Cobbler!
I stamped the plant, welcome mat, wreath and the present in Memento Black and then colored over with my Blender Pens and SU!’s inks! Once the Memento is dry you can totally color on it and it won’t bleed!! I also put some Wink of Stella on top to add that bit of sparkly that I HAVE to have on a lot of my cards……who doesn’t like SPARKLE!!??
Can you see the Stained Glass on the Door Window?!! I used Soft Suede 5″ X 3 3/4″ to put behind the door and ran it through the Big Shot using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder! Each image: Door (2 pieces), wreath, matt, present and flower pot has thinlits that fit them!! Once you color them it’s easy to run right through and they look so pretty!!!
I didn’t want the Stained Glass to show when you opened the door, so I sandwiched the window sheet with the ‘stained glass’ between two pieces of the door.
I REALLY hope you have enjoyed this post, please sign up to be notified when I post again!
Here is the Blog Candy:
Happy Heart Embossing Folder can be yours!! And the best thing is that it won’t take much effort on your part at all! Leave a comment here on my blog or on my Facebook Page TedderBearStamping, it can be a comment on MULTIPLE posts, each time you comment you are in the running for the drawing that will be held on the 15th of May! That’s only 5 days from now! Eeeck!! Don’t waste any time! LOL I love Embossing Folders, and hope that you do too!!
I’ll be back soon!! Can’t wait to show you how the Stained Glass window I did for Kylie’s International Blog Highlight May 2017 came out!! Hopefully it dries the way I want it to, AND that I am patient!!

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 🙁 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!

I just got back from Stampin’ Up’s! Leadership and they had this stamp set EVERYWHERE! Luckily I had already earned it (it’s a Sale-A-Bration stamp set or SAB, which I got FREE for purchasing $50.00), so I decided to come up with my own card!!
I didn’t CASE anyone!! I love when my creative juices are flowing! I used the ‘A Happy Thing’ stamp set (139134) along with ‘Crazy about You’ (137137), which is SO versatile, you can use it on just about EVERY card!!
I am always saying these words “Just Sayin'” so this stamp is PERFECT for me! I also used the Daffodil Delight (130998) and Old Olive (130999) Blendabilities (Which you can get for FREE!!) and if you come to my class I will walk you through how to shade this wonderful stamp set!! I also used the Thinlits “Hello You” (137363).
AND right now until June 2nd you get the BUNDLE that has the ‘Hello You’ thinlits and the Stamp set ‘Crazy about You’ #139325 (clear) Photopolymer #138873 so you save 15%!! IF you buy this bundle in the clear or Wood #139324, You can get the ‘A Happy Thing’ stamp set that is used in this card for FREE because it is a SAB set! If you purchase the Photopolymer, which I LOVE, you will need to add another item to your order to get the FREE ‘A Happy Thing’ stamp set, you need $50 in US.
I used the Daffodil Delight ribbon #125583, the Specialty Designer Series Paper ‘Birthday Bash’ #137783 and some dimensionals #104430 which will give you MORE than enough to get ‘A Happy Thing!
So, are you ready to see the handmade card?
You will need to zoom in to see what I used at the bottom of the stamped image, I ruffled some plastic from a clear envelope! THAT was really fun to do!
