Floating Re-Inkers NC Demo Blog Hop!

 

 

Floating-Re-Inkers

Thank you for visiting me!  I know you just came from Pam Staples  blog, Isn’t it great!!

Each month NC Demos is going to be hosting a Blog Hop using current Stampin’ Up! product the last day of each month at 8:00 p.m.!  So, get ready to see a lot of great cards/projects!

Before the end of the month I will be doing  a live video on Periscope (making the card you’ll see here on our blog hop!) where you can ask me quesions AS I’m doing my card!  You must download the app to be notified and you will have to follow me to see when I am on!

Periscope doesn’t keep the videos long, but I have it to where it automatically saves it for a few days on Katch.me

Mine is called Floating Re-Inkers, I stamped my image (Rose Wonder, Big Rose with leaves) on Shimmer White Paper using Versamark and then white Embossing Powder.

I then spritzed my Shimmer White cardstock (this holds up better with the water than our white cardstock.  Plus it gives a Great Sparkly look!!  After spritzing with water, I dropped my colors of re-inkers that I wanted to use:  Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise, for the flower, and Mint Macaron and Cucumber Crush for the leaves.

I cut out the flower, and then the leaves seperate, so I could place the leaves closer into the flower, since I wanted my flower to be in the middle of my card!

I popped up the flower after putting some of that GORGEOUS Gold thread behind it (you should be able to see it peaking behind.  I also wrapped the Gold Thread around the two side pieces (Brights DSP), as I said……I LOVE that Gold Thread!!)

Since I used the Brights Collection for the Flower, I used the sequins to highlight the gold threading on the side! I put a teeny tiny pearl in each sequin, and stamped the saying from Something To Say stamp set!

Hope you like it!!

Come back to our Blog Hop next month! Now you will go to Francis Wagner blog, Enjoy!!

Puffy Vellum

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!!

Thanks for visiting, hope to see you next time!

Advent Calendar

Advent Calendar resized

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!!

August Paper Pumpkin

August 2015 PP

I played with my Paper Pumpkin today!!  It was so much fun, I just went to the Pinterest Paper Pumpkin site after I did the handmade cards and box straight from the PP directions, I wanted to do some different ones, and this site helped me pick out what I wanted to do!

The SU! card in the middle uses the new Gold 3/8″ glitter ribbon #139614 from the Holiday Catalog (2015) .  I cut up one of the cards with the stripes so I could get more from that one sheet (since it is printed front and back, I can make a lot of cards by piecing it.)

I also paired the saying with the Metallic Foil Doilies #138392 behind it to make it POP!  Adding dimensionals underneath really made it stand out!

The card to the right of the middle I used the cut up piece (from the middle card) and layered it onto Gold Foil Sheets #132622, and used the ribbon from the kit I was inspired by one of the cards on the site listed above.

Don’t forget to take advantage of the 1/2 off deal that Stampin’ Up! is offering now until the 10th of September, you get TWO months for the price of one!!  Just go to PaperPumpkin.com site and sign up!  Just remember to put me down as your Demonstrator!

Sheltering Tree Class!

I am having a Stampin’ Up! Sheltering Tree Class next month.  We will be making framed Seasons art (this has a biblical verse inside, you can include it or not), four handmade cards with decorated envelopes inside and out AND the cost of the class covers YOU getting the stamp set and the Envelope Liner paper to take home with you along with the cards and Art!!

You get the class, cards, stamp set and liner paper, and what do you pay?  Only $38!!

IF you already have the stamp set, just buy a stamp that is equal to the price!

Here are pictures of the cards and framed art.  Psssssst!  I even teach you how to make a mixture for the trees in the Winter Season!!

You can click on each photo and see them closer.  Notice the hand stamped Winter card, hopefully you can see the shimmer!  This uses my own concoction from SU! materials!

This is a Pre-Pay class, I want to have the class by the middle of September so the latest you can register is the first week in September!

This was really fun to make, I plan on giving this away for a present!

I can also do a video for each card, if anyone wants to do a class to go, and orders the same amount.  This way even if you don’t live near-by or can’t make it to class, you can still enjoy making it at home in your own time!

Hope to hear from you soon!!

SU! Demo

 

Monday Creative Blog Hop!

Welcome back to the Blog Hop!

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!!

Crazy About you

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!
