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!!

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

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!

Here is a reminder of what you can win:


These are soooooo pretty!!  Good luck!

I’m off to make some cards for my upcoming classes!  I’m sure I will be sharing them with you as time allows!

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!

Sneak Peek Eastern Palace Suite and New In Colors

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!  🙂

Sneak Peek of Stampin’ Up! NEW stamps!

Today I am sharing a NEW stamp set due out in June from SU!, called Colorful Seasons!  I also used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits with it!

Here is what I made:

I want to be sitting in that chair drinking some tea and watching the water go by!  Don’t you?   To make this card look like it was in a frame, I made my own frame out of Soft Sky cardstock from Stampin’ Up!

I also used the stamp set Lovely as a Tree to give the scene some dimension!  I had this card in my head since Friday and I just HAD to try and see if I could get it to come out of my head onto card stock and look just as pretty!  I think I did, what do you think?

Here is a closeup of the flowers in the tree:

I cut out the stamped images using the Thinlit and then with the Berry Blast inked flower I added some of SU!’s Fine Tip Glue so it would make it look puffy and shiny!  Love these new Colors! For the light pink I used the NEW In Color Powder Pink!

Here is a side view of the card so you can see how I made it look framed:

All of the flowers and the branches come off the framed Soft Sky piece of card stock!  I DID add pieces of the Foam Adhesive Strips onto the back of not only the Soft Sky but also each flower, so they wouldn’t get squished down with mailing.  I wanted more space than what the Dimensionals would give me so that’s why I used it.

That adirondack (spelling?) chair is so stinkin’ cute!  Right?  Do you see the glass of ‘tea’ I have sitting there?

Here’s the inside of the card:

I hope to have more ideas for you in the near future, so be sure and subscribe to my blog to not miss out!

I’ve got some NEW Blog Candy to give away!!

It’s the Happy Heart Embossing Folder by SU!   I absolutely love embossing folders, hope you do too!  I will be holding the drawing on May 15th!  How do you get this for FREE!?  You either place a comment here (no limit to how many times) on my blog, or on my Facebook Page (no limit there either!),  That’s it!  How else can you get a Stamp set for FREE!?

Hope you enjoyed my post today and my Sneak Peek!!

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!?

Check back in with me, I’ll be posting more retiring ideas AND new product!  Subscribe both to my blog and to my Newsletter and you won’t miss anything!
