Technique Tuesday-Making a Diamond pattern background

Today is Tuesday!  That means that I have a video out today showing another Technique!  Today’s Technique is making a Diamond pattern using the Simply Scored and sponging to highlight those scores.  It came out so pretty!  Surprisingly a very easy background!  I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen on each point that intersects and then added Silver Glitter.  You can see the video here!

I also used the FREE ribbon from Sale a Bration that has THREE different ribbons!  If you need one of the catalogs, just let me know and I will get it out to you!  You can also get the new 2018 Occasions catalog!  I send out mailings once a week, so just ask!

The inside is pretty too!  I LOVE the new Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Magical Day!  It really brings out my inner child!

Isn’t that Dragon too cute!?  I colored the wings and the parts of the Knight with the light Smoky Slate Blends!

I hope you enjoyed my post today!  Stay tuned, I will be sharing this months cards throughout the month!

Coming Soon! Sneak Peek to Magical Day!

Today I am sharing with you a couple of cards that I made for my YouTube Channel.  I have a very simple fold but the cards are stunning!  You can see the video here!

While I was at OnStage in Salt Lake City in UT I got to see first hand cards that were made using this set!!  I fell in LOVE!

Here is the front of my card:

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is called Myths & Magic, it is embossed and GORGEOUS!!  ON the Video you can see how shiny and beautiful they are!

Here it is partially open:

I embossed the ‘sparkles’ on the side using Silver embossing powder.

Here is this card open all the way, isn’t it pretty!!?

I used Stampin’ Blends, and just love this card so much!!

Now, here is the other card, same design, different stamps!

I used the Myths & Magic Washi Tape on the side, isn’t it gorgeous!?

I am already planning on ordering MORE of this DSP and Washi Tape!

Well?  Do you love it?!  If you want a catalog, just let me know and I will get it to you!!

Star Wars handmade Birthday card, PLUS Blog Candy!

How does time get away from me?  I know!  It’s because I get to stamping in my stamp room and time just flies!

As I went to bed last night, I was thinking of what had to be done……….THIS is why it’s so hard to shut my brain off when I go to bed!  I thought I still had plenty of time to come up with a Star Wars birthday card for my Grandson, Isaac.  NOPE!!  I am in North Carolina, he’s in California and his  birthday is in 3 days!  NOT sure it will get there in time, but I’ve been talking and thinking about this card for a MONTH!  🙂  Does that count?

Here is what I came up with (thanks to Pinterest and Carrie Rhodes!):

I am NOT a big Star Wars Fan, so thank goodness for Pinterest!  🙂  Now, don’t get me wrong, I like Star Wars, I’m just not a HUGE fan!  I hope he likes it!  My daughter wants me to make one of each Character, I already made Yoda, so anyone have any pictures of anyone who might have  made the other characters?  I have ONE year to plan!  hahaha  Hope I make it on time!

Here is some of the pieces used to make it, some are retired, but all are from Stampin’ Up!,  (see below for all product) glad I held on to them!


Of course I trimmed all the circles away, BUT you might want to learn from me……..wait until the glue is DRY before doing that!  I had to start over!  Thankfully the mail hadn’t come by the time I finished!

Hope you enjoyed this post, and that you will come to my rescue and send me other Star War cards that I can copy!

If you live in the United States and don’t have a demonstrator I would LOVE to be yours!  Anyone who buys from me will get a handmade card in the mail thanking them for their purchase…..you never know it just might be one you see on my blog!  Also subscribe to my Newsletter and get some great stamping ideas!

Now, onto the Blog Candy!!  I am GIVING AWAY an Embossing Folder!  What do you have to do to be in the drawing to get it?  You just have to leave me a comment here on my blog, any post until May 15th.  I will put everyone in the drawing who comments here and on my Facebook page TedderBearStamping, That’s it!  No buying anything, just commenting!  You can comment as many times as you want on different posts and it will count!
