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!

I posted earlier that I was going to use this stamp set from Stampin’ Up! for Kylie’s International Blog Hop, but I changed my mind! I didn’t think, when I was finished with it, that it yelled MASCULINE. So I am sharing it with you now!
Yes! This is the one that I told you about with the stained glass that came out even better than how I did it in the past! I touched the one that was drying before it was ready so I had to start all over. I don’t want to pray for Patience because I really don’t want to practice it a lot! 🙂 I’m not very good at it!
To start off, I scribbled on a piece of Window Sheet with some of SU!’s markers. I then placed little circles of the Fine Tip Glue Pen over the scribbles and the colors bled and create a really cool pattern!
I used Cajun Craze and Dapper Denim. See how it marbles?!! Once dry it is see through with the colors showing through what looks like an antique stained glass!!
Once it’s dry………..it takes time, it’s probably a good idea to leave it overnight so you don’t mess with it! Trust me!
Once the door is cut out with the thinlit, place the Window Sheet down on the back side (the side that opens).
NOT sure why I took this picture of the door UPSIDE down other than to get a better picture! Can you see the two colors?!!
I have magnet strips on the door between this layer and the next which will sandwich the Window Sheet so you won’t see it. I placed magnets under the inside of the door (under the saying too), so when the card is standing the door won’t flap open. It makes it snap together.
Here is a picture of the other side of the door attached so the Window Sheet is between them:
It REALLY looks like Antique glass, right?
Here is a pic of the card:
Can you see the dog and the cat cuddling together?! I put a piece of ribbon between the door and the ‘sandwich’ so it can’t be seen other than the part I want to help open the door.
Here is the door open:
The welcome mat is stamped and then I cut fringes in the layer under it so it looks like a mat!
I would love to hear what you think! Too much?
Here is a picture of the inside:
I love the dog basket!!

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!

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!!

Today, I decided to do some experimenting! Ever get an idea in your head and you just HAVE to get it out!? I get them all the time, USUALLY when I’m trying to go to sleep at night……UGH!
I wanted to see what would happen if you added Mod Podge to SU!’s cardstock so it’s covered and THEN run it through an Embossing Folder. Yes, it’s messy. Yes, you will want to wash your folder right away! And YES it it really cool!! After running it through (and washing my folder) I heat set it. I am NOT very patient…….hence the heat drying! I did it on Garden Green cardstock and I did it on Shimmery White from Stampin’ Up! LOVE, LOVE LOOOOOVE their paper! Well, let me be honest, I love all their product! hahaha This is the main reason I became a SU! Demonstrator! I wanted the discount since I wanted it ALL!!
After heat setting the paper, it dried so nicely, I just looked at it to decide what to do with it! Yes, I fly by the set of my pants……Is that the right expression? Well, the green called me more even though I had sponged the Shimmery White with multiple colors (it was gorgeous!), but the Garden Green looked so striking!
Here is a picture of the finished card and you tell me if you think it is striking!
I know! Right!? It made me want to let the Paper be the STAR! Since it was leaves, I pulled out my Vintage Leaves Bundle. The front has the Framelit and the inside has both the stamp and the framelit! I am so astonished how beautiful this turned out! I’m going to be honest again……….I’m ALWAYS surprised when I design something and it comes out this good! Don’t get me wrong, I can CASE with the best of them, but my ‘ideas’ don’t always work out! I bet there a quite a few of you who can relate!
Here is a picture of the inside!
I think it has the perfect amount of space to write in, since I never have enough to say to fill it up! Now, WHO do I send it to?!
Here is a close-up of the leaves:
Don’t forget I have Blog Candy! The drawing is coming up really fast!! You can put in MULTIPLE comments for any of my posts AND you can go to my FaceBook Page and comment on there too! So easy, and you get a great gift for FREE!!

Today I am going to be sharing with you two of my SU! handmade cards that I have done this week!
The first one is one using the White Simply Pressed Clay along with the Alphanumeric Mold, the Clay is in the Big Catalog but you’ll find the Alphabet/numeric mold in the seasonal catalog (pg 32 #137854, for only $9.95), My friend had the mold so I let her do the letters for me, and once they were dry I cut them (there is a little clay around the letter if you did it right, that you can cut away the excess so the image is really bold!), then I colored them using our SU! Write Markers in these colors: Daffodil Delight, Blackberry Bliss, Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point, Blushing Bride and Rose Red. I used these colors because those are the colors in the DSP I used – Painted Blooms.
This way as usual with Stampin’ Up! everything coordinates! After I applied the color I used Fast Fuse on the back of each letter and adhered it to my DSP. If you haven’t used Fast Fuse, you HAVE to try it #129026, page 204 in the Catalog! It’s the best adhesive that I have tried that works with EVERYTHING!
Once adhered to the Designer Paper, I went over the letters with my Versamark Pad, just pouncing over top of them, saying to myself…..boink, boink, boink……must be watching too may Disney Movies! 🙂
I then sprinkled Crystal Clear Embossing Powder over where I pounced the Versamark and then tipped the card over and flicked off the extra powder, then I heat set it and WOW!, it made the letters look like they were Ceramic! Hopefully you can see that in the picture
I stamped the saying “@numberonemother” from the SU! set @SoSocial, LOVE this stamp set, it has just about everything you would EVER need to say in it! I stamped that saying using Rose Red ink onto Blushing Bride paper and then made it pop out of the side between the Black paper and the Pacific Point Paper. I also stamped the Chevron stamp using Rose Red ink onto Rose Red paper! All Coordinating, and a very awesome card to send to your Mom, or a Mom to be!!
The next project I did was almost COMPLETELY Cased (Copy And Stamp Everything) from Sandy at: StampWithSandy.com I really loved the simplicity of this card, plus it has layers, and diamonds (Rhinestones in SU! speak, but I like calling them DIAMONDS!). the only thing I changed was I stamped my saying “Just Sayin'” from the Crazy About You stamp set onto Baked Brown Sugar (Sandy used Crumb Cake I think) then cut it out with the arrow from On Film thinlits, and topped it off with the Hello You Thinlits. I love arrows! They go with this saying perfectly!!
I stamped the flower in Cherry Cobbler and stamped off the leaves using Baked Brown Sugar, then Put the white and the Bermuda Bay on top of the Base of Baked Brown Sugar! I wrapped the white Bakers Twine around the white, I don’t like it when the ribbon shows on the inside. This was a fun simple card that uses my thinlits (which I LOVE!) and I thank Sandy for the inspiration!
That’s it for me today, it was a long week for me!
Hope your day goes great and hopefully I’ll see you back next week…….maybe with some Blog Candy perhaps, hmmmmm?
Come back again!
