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!!
That’s it for today!! Hope you liked it! Subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss anything!!

If you happened to see my Periscope video on this technique, I apologize that i didn’t get my orientation right, but it was my first one, so I’m happy I got it done, didn’t stutter and it looked good, even though you’ll get a crick in your neck watching it!
I promise next time I will get it right!! Here is the card I was working on. The white flower is Vellum and I used my score tool from my stampin’ score board. It not only makes the vellum stick out on the other side, but it makes it white!!
You can’t see the clear Wink of Stella on it, it’s so pretty!! I also added the gold thread behind the flower and behind the sentiment that I cut out with my Big Shot and Lots of Labels thinlits!
Here is the side so you can see the flower is puffy:
It’s hard to see,but WOW when you feel it, there is so much texture and interest on your card!
Keep an eye on my next Periscope, and if you leave a comment I will put you in a drawing for a free SAB stamp set, the drawing will be at the end of February, so you’ll have plenty of times to leave comments!!
I love stamping, it gives me so much pleasure.
Working for a company like Stampin’ Up! lets me get PAID for doing something I love to do!
There is a sale right now during Sale-a-Bration, if you decide to join the SU! team and mine (LETs Stamp!) you get for your $99……..$150 worth of product PLUS the shipping is free!! March is the last month of SAB and your chance to get sooooooo many goodies for so little!
I would love to have you join my team and me when we share fabulous creations and have meetings! I try to skype with the down line that is not living close enough.
I’m not very savvy with all the technical things, but I usually just have to ask one of my kids!! 🙂
Go take a look at my Periscope, look under Puffy Vellum or my name Lisa Tedder, or Lisa E Tedder, it won’t be there but 24 – 48 hours!!
I made this Advent Calendar to give as Christmas Presents this year! Every year I come up with something that people can hang onto for Generations! To give you an idea of the size it is 9 1/2″ wide, and 17″ tall.
This was a really fun one to make, and surprisingly very easy, 4 +/- hours to make (which is why you will want to be with others, MUCH more fun!!).
I am having a stamping Retreat on Dec. 5th if anyone wants to come and make this! The supplies are around $50.00,and you will take home the ‘left-overs’, I would have to go out and buy the base (which is a round box), and I put burlap ribbon on it to make it look more like a’tree’.
My husband is catering this event, and we will have all kinds of cookies and treats, plus door prizes!! If you don’t want any of the above mentioned (food, door prizes) the cost will be $65.00.
You MUST RSVP and Pay by the 23rd to let me get the supplies back in time. I hope you decide you want to join me in making this wonderful gift! You DON’T have to give it away!
It is so much more fun to do a project when you have music playing, cookies to eat and friends to talk to!
So? What do you say? Are you in? Space is limited, so don’t wait to hold your place!!
I am having a class this weekend, where Moms bring their daughters to come play at my house!
Every month we make between 2-3 projects, and it is so much fun to see the kids bond and show off how much they are learning!
It’s also great that the Moms get to spend QUALITY time with their daughters!!
My daughter started High School this year and I saw that I wasn’t having that much time with her doing something we could both enjoy. She’s growing up so fast and she’s the youngest of the family and I don’t want to look back with regrets!
If you live near Kernersville NC, Triad area, Winston Salem, High Point or Greensboro send me a message and I can start a class with Your friends and their kids! I highly recommend that the kids be at least 9, Just don’t look back with regrets! 🙂 Below you will see two of the ideas that they can choose from:
Aren’t these just too cute!!!! I also have two cats to let them choose from!! These boxes are so easy and fun!!! I can just see them sitting on my daughters dresser!! And hopefully she is thinking about me when she sees it!!
