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!!

You can get in on the drawing by posting comments here on this blog (any post! or multiple posts!) or on my Facebook page and I will put your name down each and every time you comment!  But be aware…..there are some that follow me that take that comment VERY seriously!  I’ve had her comment on each and every post that I make and she also comments on my Facebook page, Twitter AND my Instagram!  She’s one serious girl!  YOU know who you are, and I appreciate you very much!  🙂

The moral of the story is if you REALLY want to win my Blog Candy comment on everything!  I put the names into a Name Generator so I have NO say on who wins!

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 ———

Catalog Launch Prize Give-away using Colorful Seasons, now to make one for me!

Last Friday, I had my Catalog Launch Party and I had two Prizes that those who attended could win!

The first one uses the Birthday Delivery bundle!  LOVE this bundle, it is so much fun to play with!  Did you know that the thinlits not only fit the STAMPED images, but also fits the images on the Designer Series Paper (aka DSP)?!  It’s so versatile and you KNOW I love to get more from my stamping dollars!

I LOVE how the Chef has his can that will spray out the words “It’s your big day!”   Isn’t that so cute!  The balloons are fun to add, I had to ‘fussy cut’ the bear but it was super simple.  I’m sorry to say that I gave this away BEFORE I measured it!  I ‘think’ it was 8″ x 10″.   I made it on Thursday and I had a winner for it on Friday!  For the grass I sponged using Old Olive with a mask giving it that great wavy look!

For my other Prize I did a take on a card I made in another post:

I loved how this came out, and decided to see how it would look framed with all the seasons!  I have to admit I was soooooo excited when I was done, and a little disappointed that I had to GIVE IT AWAY!  LOL  I used Dazzling Diamonds to make the water sparkle, especially on the winter one to make the water look icy!  Here is a closer look at each Season:

The water is icy and the chair is sparkly with Dazzling Diamonds!

The trees are just budding with leaves and the Chair is in Pristine condition!

Summer time!  The sun is shining! The blooms are out!  The chair is a ‘little’ dirty, but we have that iced drink so we don’t care!!

Fall is here!  The leaves are changing!  The chair is almost ready to be cleaned for the end of the season!

Here is the full view!  Notice the Dazzling Diamonds background paper?  The measurements for this beauty is 11″ x 14″………..which is why I had to add the strips of Bermuda Bay.  Can’t have a place that has a seam!  There’s only ONE seam, but for symmetry I put two strips in!

For this Colorful Seasons framed art, I took off with the given name of the set……..Colorful SEASONS!  I chose to make four scenes but having the scene stay the same but change it up to see the Seasons!  I had a blast making this!  I used Lovely as a Tree to be my backdrop, and the best thing is that you can make this stamp set look different just by using markers!

Dimensions:

Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper #135315, 12″ x 11″ and 12″ x 2″
Bermuda Bay ( Brights Cardstock pack) #145409, 1/2″ x 11″ x’s 2
Basic Black #124267, 12″ x 9″
Bermuda Bay (see # above), 11 3/4″ x 8 3/4″
Seasons:
Pool Party (Winter) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Pink Pirouette (Spring) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Berry Burst (Summer) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Cherry Cobbler (Fall) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″

All Seasons are on Whisper White cardstock 4″ x 5 1/4″, ‘frame’ is Pool Party 5 1/4″ x 4″ with a 1/2″ cut out on inside all around.

Water is Soft Sky and Bermuda Bay for all seasons except winter which is Soft Sky and Whisper White.

Trees are colored with markers:  Tree trunk is all Early Espresso, Leaves are Old Olive (spring and summer), Fall is Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry.

For the water I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to make the water sparkle with Dazzling Diamonds on top.

For the winter tree branch thinlit I used the White Gel pen (retired) to make snow on the top, with Dazzling Diamonds over it to make the branches be snowy!

That’s it for the Dimensions!

I hope you like this post!  This took me a couple days to create but only because I had to think it up!  Once started, it took a couple of hours.

I will be making one for myself as soon as I am able!  I will probably take this to the winner on Monday so will have to make one before then, just in case I need a life size reference!!

I have my Blog Candy to give away TOMORROW!!  Wow, that went fast!  You can get in on the drawing by posting comments here on this blog (any post! or multiple posts!) or on my Facebook page and I will put your name down each and every time you comment!

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!!

 

The drawing for this Blog Candy is June 6th!  Post here on my blog (on any post, as many as you want!) or on any of my social media posts TedderBearStamping on Facebook, Instagram as TedderBearStamping, or on my Twitter acct as TedderBearStamp!

See?  PLENTY of ways to win free goodies!!  I will be continuing with my blog candy until I feel like you don’t want free stamping supplies!  Think that will ever happen?  Nah!  I wouldn’t think so!

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!!

Eastern Beauty trying new combinations!

Today I am playing with Eastern Beauty, a NEW stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  This stamp set is so Versatile!!  I have seen so many different ways of stamping  with this set so I thought I would give it a try and just play with it!  I DID end up making a card!  And I love how it came out!

Here it is:

It’s a monochromatic card using ONE ink pad!  The ink I used is Dapper Denim! To get the two different colors I just stamped once on a scratch paper before I stamped on the cardstock.

The cardstock I used is Dapper Denim and Soft Sky.  The measurements are:

Dapper Denim:  5 1/2″ x 4  1/2″, scored at 1 1/4″ and another piece    5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″   (I had to cut it this way since the thinlit won’t fit through the Big Shot from side to side. The flap that I scored fits over the back of the 5 1/2″ x 4  1/4″ )

Soft Sky: 5 1/4″ X 4″ and 5 1/4″ X 3″

I then placed the curvy Thinlit from Seasonal Layers on the bottom of each piece (away from the flap on the one, and along the smaller Soft Sky)  centering it on each side so it is even.  NOT at at same time though!

Stamped this first:

Then turned stamp….

Then:

There are all kinds of ways to do this!  You can place the diamond shape further apart and get this:

Then go from there:

I put a different middle on this one!  Plus I stamped that pretty 3 point exclamation (not sure what to call it!) at each curve.

I stamped the Life is Beautiful stamp along the curve at the bottom twice and then once more stamped the ‘diamond’ shape but stamped off since I wanted it to be lighter than the words.

Here’s more images from this stamp set:

This one uses the stamp from the set that has the point in the middle, just line it up and stamp between each valley and it looks like a Spirograph from when I was a kid!

One more:

Hope you love this stamp as much as I do!  I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with it!  I would love to hear from you which image YOU like best!  Just place a comment here and you will also be eligible for my Blog Candy!  Which is this:

I LOVE Embossing folders, don’t you?!  Comment before May 15th and you might get this in YOUR mail box! You can also put a comment on my Facebook Page TedderBearStamping and I’ll put you in the drawing!

Mother’s Day Meets Paper Pumpkin!

Welcome to the NCDemo Blog Hop!  We do this on the last Sunday of every month, so be sure to come back!  I know you will love all the Mother’s Day ideas we have for you this month!

Mother’s Day is coming and since my Mom is no longer with us, I usually plan for my own day.  I normally just tell my kids what I want and then they get it…….this year I made my OWN Mother’s Day gift!

My story starts with a conversation I had with my 16 y/o daughter.  Me:  I’m tired of emptying the dishwasher, when it’s your chore!?
Her:  I don’t know when it’s clean or dirty!
Me:  Well, how about I make a sign saying whether it’s clean or dirty?
Her:  Yeah, that would work!

So, the very next day I went to work!  I definitely want her to do her chores, and I had an idea in my head already!!
I LOVE Paper Pumpkin!  It’s a cool kit that has everything needed to make something crafty!

Here is a picture of the box for April:

 

This was what was inside!  Sara gave us a special gift this month…..Watercolor Pencils, with a great brush to use!

Now, here is everything that was in the box!!  Can you believe how much is in that box!!??

Paper Pumpkin comes every month, and it is always a delicious surprise!!  It always comes with an ink spot, stamp set and everything  needed to have a fun filled afternoon!   And if you go to Pinterest you will find TONS of ideas!  Go ahead, do a search for Paper Pumpkin, April 2017.  There are soooooo many ideas, you can pick as many as you want, or you can follow the directions in the Paper Pumpkin box and make what they planned!   Every month it is like getting a Birthday gift in your mailbox!  If you are interested, and don’t have a demonstrator for Stampin’ Up! I would love to be yours! You can order this to come every month, or you can just get one and test it out!  But, if you are like me…..you won’t want to miss even one!

Continuing my story!  I want my daughter to have NO EXCUSES to empty the dishwasher so I made a magnetic sign to put on the front so she will know when it is ready for her to empty it!  Now, this doesn’t mean that I won’t STILL have to remind her, BUT she won’t have any excuses!  heehee

This is what I made:

When the dishes are CLEAN, the clean is on top so you can read it, when it’s dirty, it’s the other way around:

To make this, I stamped  the word Clean from an old alphabet set I have, and stamped it on the Watercolor paper from the kit (totally blank piece) using Versamark and clear Embossing Powder.  You can’t see it since it’s totally clear, but when you go to color over them the Clear EP keeps the color off!  I then used the pencils to scribble across the watercolor paper in stripes, even over the words.  I made sure that I got a good coverage and then went over the pencil with the watercolor brush to make it soft and to have a nice progression between the colors.

I stamped the splotch image all over the Water colored paper, staying away from the ‘Clean’ I stamped.  Then I  used one flap from the envelopes that are inside the kit over the piece I stamped and colored, it’s so pretty with the black splotches on it!  The flowers in the kit are sooooo pretty! They are sparkly on both sides, but one side is smooth, this is the side I placed a dimensional (ALSO in the kit!)  The leaves are in the kit, and go perfect with the flowers!

Have I convinced you yet that Paper Pumpkin is great??!!  My hope is this sign will make my daughter empty the dishwasher!!  LOL  I’m not holding my breath!

I now have this Stinkin’ Cute sign on my dishwasher, and I had fun making it!  Win/Win!

Don’t forget I have Blog Candy!!  Drawing is on May 15th.   Everytime you post a comment on ANY post on my blog or post a comment on my Facebook page, you will be put in a drawing to maybe win this:


I hope you enjoyed my blog post, now onto the next blog!

Sneak Peek of NEW Stampin’ Up! stamp sets Eastern Beauty, Eastern Madallions and Colorful Seasons

Today I TRIED to do a Facebook Live, and it came out ok, but I REALLY need to practice more!  hahahaha

I wanted to share with you today TWO/Three NEW sets from SU! that is coming out in June!  The reason I say Two/Three is because I am showcasing a set that has a Thinlit that works with it.  Not sure you would say they are separate sets, but they could be used apart.

The one I am sooooo excited about it Eastern Beauty and Eastern Medallions!  This set is so Versatile!  You can use the stamp set to make ALL kinds of great designs!  I have to still work on seeing what it does, so for now I will be sharing the card I made using the Eastern Medallion thinlits and a few of the stamps!!

Here is the card:

VERY pretty colors, right?  This is made with a lot of the framelits.  The cool thing is that you can mix and match them!  The one on the card that has the popped up part, is usually solid in the middle.  I used one of the other thinlits and placed it in the middle and made it so you can see through it!  Here is a sheet showing the one still attached to the cardstock and the other framelits in the set:

         

If you want to cut out an image to either put in the center. or cut out a center, you can see this piece leaves just the cutouts that you see:

OR if you want to cut out the image, use the smallest circle from the Layering Circles #141705 and t cuts it out perfectly!

Doesn’t Stampin’ Up! think of everything!  🙂

I started with a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Watercolor Paper and placed a lot of the Thinlits on the Watercolor paper, then added to them, to get the look I wanted.   I then got my Aqua Painter and colored some of the new pretty In Colors on the top of the Water Color Paper, making it as bright and pretty as I could!

I used Wink of Stella to make the paper sparkle and then popped up the piece in the center left by making the edges pull up (the piece doesn’t pop out all the way, just the petal edges).  I placed Dimensionals on the bottom of the entire Piece of Paper and then placed it on  5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ piece of Copper Foil.  It looks so pretty in person, with the copper peeking out!

I stamped the saying from Eastern Beauty “enjoy today” on the right center and then used clear Embossing powder on it to make it more textural (I LOVE that our inks are wet enough to do this!!)

I used the brand new Glitter Enamel Dots that I got from attending OnStage in Savannah GA!!  If you are a demonstrator one of the MANY perks is that you get to see product before anyone else!  AND if you attend OnStage (which is all over the world!) you can pre-buy certain product before other demos that didn’t attend!  Of course I HAVE to go, so I can see/touch and order new goodies……as I’ve said MULTIPLE times, I am NOT  a patient person!  LOL

For the added touch before putting it onto the Berry Burst Cardstock I wrapped some Copper Thread so it peeks out of the side of the lifted petal and goes around the sentiment!

Here is the inside of the card!

Again, I used the stamps from the Eastern Beauty to adorn the inside!  Well?  Do you like it?

On my Facebook Live Video  New Sneak Peek Stamp sets I also showed another card.  I showed how this one was made, so I will show you the picture and if you want to see it made, go see the video…..just ignore how silly I look/sound/act……..this is what happens when you are not super experienced at it!  HAHAHAHA

I won’t show you the one I tried to make better on the video, because in the long run, I liked this one better!

Here is the inside:

I really love the Copper on the Designer Series Paper (DSP), don’t you?!  And the leaf in Copper looks so pretty on the inside!

If you live in the USA, I would LOVE to have you be a part of my Team!  You can sign up under me, get a discount, get to attend SU! functions, order product early and get to meet the BEST people!  What can be better than getting paid to do what you love to do!?
