Another Easy but wow card straight from the Catalog!

The card I am sharing with you today is from the stamp set Hello Friend!  I shared this card with you last time:

I, once again, looked in the Catalog for Inspiration!  This is the image that struck me as something I wanted to try:

This is using the kit on page 16 & 17:  Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project Kit.  I don’t have the kit……….yet, but have the stamp set and wanted to give this a try.  I DID have the Gold mini sequins!  Those are just too stinkin’ cute!!  I was giggling when I got them!  It doesn’t take much (in the card making world) to make me happy!

I didn’t have the kit, but I loved the way the wreath looked on Crumb Cake, so I was using that.  I wanted a lighter green (than pictured) so I used Wild Wasabi as my green.  LOVE how the flowers are so white so I wanted to use Versamark and White Embossing Powder.  Here is what my card looks like:

Isn’t it pretty?  And not too many steps, sometimes simplicity is the best way to go!!

The sentiment is on Whisper White 1 3/4″ x 1 1/4″, then I used the Envelope Punch Board to round two opposite corners, to give a really pretty look!  I popped this up with dimensions after putting some adhesive on the card in the middle of the Wreath and laid down the Gold Mini sequin ribbon.  The ribbon is free to move on both ends, only the middle is stuck down.

The Gold Foil Paper is 5″ x 3 3/4″, but I cut around the inside edges to make a frame since you can’t see it and I didn’t want to waste any of it!!  The top Crumb cake is 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″.

Easy but definitely stunning!  In person, it’s even better!!

I have blog candy that I’m giving away too!  Here is what you can win:

Hello Friend! Stunning yet easy, Really!

I bought the new stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Hello Friend because it looked like it would be a fun stamp set to use!  I was NOT disappointed!

I went out on Pinterest to see what others have done with this set, and you know what?  NOTHING was out there!  So, what is a girl to do?  I checked out the SU! catalog, that’s what I did!  And you know what, they had the BEST idea in there!  Here’s what they have:

 This is using the Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project kit on page 17.  I loved it, but of course had to make it my own.   Plus, I don’t have the kit…….yet!  You really should go take a look, you will love how easy and beautiful this kit is!

Here is mine:

Isn’t it beautiful!!  And the idea came right out of the catalog!

Dimensions:

Flirty Flamingo 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
Black 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
Watercolor Paper 5″ x 3 3/4″

I used Aqua Painters and the re-inkers for Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach.

I will have the items I used below, just click on the picture and it will take you straight to my Online Store!

I also have Blog Candy!  The drawing is on July 4th!  You just need to comment on any of my social media posts!  Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or here on my blog, anywhere!  EVERY comment counts!

I LOVE Washi Tape!

I loved this card today, I hope you love it too!  When you can’t come up with an idea, just look in the catalog!  If you need a catalog, just let me know!  I would be happy to send you one!

Christmas Already? Wow card using Embossing Paste!

Yes, my title says it all!  I’m starting to design my Christmas Cards!  I’m sure there will be more when the Holiday Mini comes out, but I figure I need to start now and so do my girls!!

Today I am sharing with you a design I came up with using the stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called At Home with You!  I know I have shown other cards using this stamp set, but when you add the Embossing Paste and the Pattern Party Decorative Masks it takes the card a step further than I had before!!  The embossing paste really makes the front of the card a house!  Here is a picture of the card:

I added two drops of Cherry Cobbler reinker to the Paste and mixed it on my Silicone Craft Sheet (soooo easy to clean after!) and then spread it over the Brick pattern on my Whisper White Cardstock (5 1/4″ x 4″ tape it down so it won’t move).  It was MUCH easier than I thought it would be!  It dried in just 30 minutes!  For this NON patient person that was awesome!  I did the brick first and then by the time I was ready for the front of the card, it was dry!  Yay for me!  No waiting!

Here is a close up of the bushes with the ornaments:

I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen and let it dry.

And finally a close up of a side view:

I want to try the battery lights for this card, but I’m a little intimidated by it…….anyone do that before?

I will be making more Christmas cards as time goes on!  I plan on having a Christmas card class next month……I better get going on designing!  🙂

I also have blog candy!!

Darling Baby Card! Kylie’s International Blog hop!

Once again I am TRYING to be in the top ten for Kylie’s International Blog Hop, will you help me??  I came close last time, but would really like to get there this time!   Can you tell that the dog is fluffy and two colors!?  Read on to see how it was done!

Please vote for me by going to Kylie’s blog hop page!  To vote, you will click on the heart in the right corner of the pictures, preferably mine!!  🙂

The theme this month is Baby.  My card isn’t traditional ‘baby’ but I think it would make a GREAT Birthday card for any baby, OR on the inside it could say that you are expecting!!  That you are HAVING a baby!!

Here’s my card:

Isn’t it cute!!??  Same as last month, I had a totally different card planned, but I didn’t think it mustered!  I came home from a stamp class today and sat right down and made this one!  I love how the dog has such puffy fur!  Want to know how I did that?

That’s Vellum that I stamped the dog on, using Soft Suede (then embossed with clear), I then turned it over onto one of our stamp mats, and using the stylus from the Score Board I press in circular motions (gently at first!!) on the places for the white fur, it makes the Vellum raise up and turn white!!  Cool Right!!?? I then cut ANOTHER dog out of Soft Suede (using the thinlit of course!) and popped up the Vellum, putting the mini dimensionals (YUM!) under the pom pom balls on his feet and front!!  You can’t see them, can you!?  That’s because the Vellum is so white that you can place them behind and it disappears!  I LOVE this technique!

Can you see the clouds in the sky?!  Those are made with Stampin’ Up!’s Embossing Paste and the masks!

The little girl AND the dog are stamped, but the fox is cut out of the Designer Series Paper!  LOVE, love, love this suite!

Here’s a close up of the puffy:

How many NEW stamp sets can I get on a card? Plus Blog Candy!

I was perusing Pinterest seeing what I could make, and I found a Z fold card by Karen Watts and loved her scene!  Of course I had to start making my own!  And being me, I HAD to add to what I saw on her card AND put in my NEW stamp sets that I just got from the NEW catalog by Stampin’ Up!

I wanted to use the Bike Ride,  have the bike going along the beach, and since I had a beach I HAD (again) to use High Tide for the water!  High Tide is the greatest stamp set for making water!  And since I was using the water I also used the grass, birds on the beach and the birds that are flying!  Birds!!  For those that know me everytime I use the word/stamp birds, I think of Bambi and say it like Flower said it……..BIRD!  🙂

I also wanted to pull in Seasonal Layers with their Beach Chair!  That is such a fun set!  Ok, I admit it…….Stampin’ Up! has waaaaaaay too many cute sets!  They are fun to play with and BOY they are great for making a story!

Here is my card closed:

Cute, right?!!

Here is the card partially open:

There’s the chair!  And now open all the way:

I LOVE how it came out, don’t you!?  Not sure what sentiment to put on, or if it needs one……what do you think?  Sometimes when I send out my greeting cards, I don’t put a greeting on it, since I want to say what I want to say and let the card speak for itself!  Do you ever do that?

The Deets:

Cardstock
Bermuda Bay:  4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 8 1/4″, 1 1/2″ x 11, scored in the same places (when you put on card, the folds are opposite)
Whisper White: 5 1/4″ x 4″, 2 1/2″ x 4 (x’s 2), 5 1/4″ x 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″ x 1 1/4″ (xs 2) and scraps for stamping and chair.
I used a post it for the sun, JUST be sure and cut the circle in HALF before you sponge sun!  LOL  For some reason my mind couldn’t fathom that when I stamped the ocean that it would cover the circle….kind of hard when I didn’t take off the circle when I stamped the ocean OVER the circle!  Let me tell you, for some reason (though I’ve done it before) it didn’t dawn on me to cut the circle in half since I was ONLY using half of it to mask the sun.  Sheesh!!  I’m sure I am the ONLY one that happens to!

Now, on to my Blog Candy!!

It’s Washi Tape!!  These are from (lf – rt), Affectionately Yours and Botanical Gardens!!  Yes, these can be yours!  I am running this blog candy starting yesterday (since I said I would!) until July 4th!  I think that is a great day to be giving something away for FREE!  Celebrating our Freedom in a way!

Bumpy Bike ride near the Mountains

Today the mail came and inside was my framelits for Bike Ride from Stampin’ Up!  Of course I had to give it a try!

I wanted mountains in my picture so I tore some Post-It notes and stuck them to the top of my card:

I then sponged lightly Dapper Denim at the top, making the part closer to the Sticky Notes darker, and then fading the color away.

I ran the cardstock that I was using through the Big Shot with the bumpy rock thinlit under the paper, then ran it though.   This gave the Cardstock the bumps!  They look like rocks so I sponged over them using Soft Suede, this highlighted the rocks!  I was so tickled by this! Normally you put your thinlit OVER your cardstock to cut it out, but this time I wanted the impression.  Came out pretty didn’t it!?

I stamped the Bike in Fresh Fig, SU’s NEW In Color!  I also stamped the basket in it!  The dog’s scarf is Fresh Fig too!

Here is the card:

The thinlits I used are the bike frame, dog, basket, flowers and butterflies.  Oh! And my favorite the rocks!

The butterflies are cut out of the Designer Series Paper Birthday Memories:

I LOVE this thinlit! Just cut out the butterfly and it has the antenna, wings and ALL!  I HAD to add Dazzling Diamonds to make them look even prettier!

The Measurements are the normal card size with the Base being in Fresh Fig 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, scored at the 5 1/2″ line to make the card.
The Whisper White is 4″ x 5 1/4″  And scraps for all the cut outs!  This was a really fun card to make!!  I love how you can make so many different things  be on the bike!  Just change out your background and the stamp set can be for sooooo many different occasions!

I hope you enjoyed your visit today!  I have more Blog Candy to give away  on here tomorrow!!  Be sure and visit so you can be in the drawing to win!

Birthday Delivery Fox is Very Sneaky!

Today I am going to share with you a card I am making in this month’s classes!  I just LOOOOOVE this new stamp set Birthday Delivery!  The best part of this set is that the thinlits cut out the stamped image AND the image printed on the DSP!! (Designer Series Paper)

If you are in a hurry and don’t want to stamp and color an image (it doesn’t happen very often!) you can always just take out the DSP and cut your image out of that!  Stampin’ Up! has made it so simple to do a fast and easy card!

Here is the card I am doing in June’s class:

Isn’t he cute!!??  I used the Watercolor Pencils to color him in, and the Blender Pen to smoothe it all out!  This is my new favorite way to color!  No more streaks!  No more worrying about putting too much ink on!  Those pencils makes my job in blending so much easier! You HAVE to try them out!

I used the new punch, Pretty Label to stamp the Surprise! on and it fit perfectly!  I used the Brick Wall embossing folder to make the ‘house’ part of the card and I used the Hearth and Home thinlits to make the window!  Using Window Sheets the same width of the ‘window’ makes this look like a real window!

This is an impressive card, but it really is so easy!  I hope you enjoyed this! Click on any product picture below and you will be taken straight to my online store!!  When you place an order with me, I will send you a handmade card AND a small gift to let you know how much I appreciate you!  Please use this Hostess code when ordering: C62FFAR3

<!——– TAMS End ———

Black and Gold meet up with Eastern Elegance, all I can say is WOW!

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!

Don’t forget about my blog candy!!

Gorgeous Eastern Beauty card!

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!

Oh!  I almost forgot!  Did you forget?!  I have BLOG CANDY!  This is what you can win just be commenting on my blog or Facebook Page-TedderBearStamping :

New Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! ‘At Home with You’ and Blog Candy

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!!
