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!

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….
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!
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:

Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is so fulfilling! I get to meet so many great people, learn new techniques AND I get to pre-order product from the NEW Catalog! It’s so much fun to be able to not only SEE new product, but I get to buy it and YES play with it before a lot of people!
THAT is worth the price of admission! LOL I know that is a saying, but to me it is so exciting!!
Not sure I told you this, but it wasn’t until I was introduced to SU! that I found out that I am creative! What?! You could have knocked me over with a feather, to find that out! But, it’s now something that I don’t ever want to live without!
So, now that I have bored you with my reasoning on why I am a Demonstrator with the best company, I will share with you the card I made with the New stamp set Eastern Beauty:
It’s hard to see in this picture but I used the Sparkle Embossing Folder on the Black Cardstock, it matches the Designer Series Paper Eastern Palace perfectly! Stampin’ Up! thinks of everything!
The Designer Paper is that beautiful new In Color Lemon Lime Twist, and did you know that Fresh Fig ink goes great with Lemon Lime Twist AND Eggplant Envy! I also used the Glitter Enamel Dots that go with these colors great!
Here is the inside of the card:
Love, Love, Love this set! You also can’t see in the picture, but the small flowers on the bottom have a Glue Dot inside the center and then I pushed Dazzling Diamonds into it, they make the perfect circular accent, AND they are Cheap! lol And because the Dazzling Diamonds are on them, they aren’t sticky anymore on top!
Again, don’t forget about the Blog Candy that I am offering!
May 15 is the date that I will have the drawing where you may be able to get it for FREE! I love embossing folders, them give you the best texture and it just makes you want to touch the card! You get into the drawing, just by commenting on any post here on my blog or on my Facebook Page between now and the 15th! And there isn’t any limit on how many times you want to comment! Go back as far as you want on this blog, and comment away! 🙂
I hope, once again, that you have enjoyed my post! Subscribe to my blog to not miss out on any posts!

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!?
