WOW Fancy Fold!

Hey Guys, I’ve got a WOW Fancy Fold for you! This fold was brand new to me, so I HAD to try it! The idea came from Mindy Clove when we swapped in Houston. Of course, I changed it up somewhat. For the DSP I used Unbounded Beauty, and the stamp set was Cutest Cows. The Dies are from Unbounded Love. These Dies are so awesome! Today is Thursday so I am doing my Live on my YouTube Channel at 4:00 (eastern, USA), if you missed it you can see it here.

NEW Catalog starts in May!!

Because I am a Demo with Stampin’ Up! I get to go to SU! functions that give me the catalog before anyone that didn’t go! I was so excited to learn that we could purchase before everyone else too!

In the same way, those who attend next years meeting we’re going to Raleigh NC!! Not to mention I don’t have to get a plane ticket! Join my team if you too want to go next year and get all the perks!!

Want a discount EVERY time you place a SU! order?

Surely you have heard that when you join the SU! family you get a discount on all the product! But, did you know that you DON’T have to sell anything? Of course, SU! product sells itself, but all you would have to do is share/stamp with your friends. Certainly you CAN sell, but if it makes you uncomfortable, just have friends over and have a crafting day! Basically that is what I did for the first 5 years of my 0ver 20 years being with SU!

Because I don’t like to feel pushy I would have my friends come over to stamp and the product is so good that they wanted it too! Eventually you may want to do more, but you never have to! I have people in my team who have NEVER had a ‘party’! If this is something you would like, join the Tedder Bears by clicking this link!

Underwater Magic

With Seas the Day-Make your own seascape!

Hey Guys, Unlike my son I like to see Underwater Magic from my craft room chair. Basically if you, by chance don’t want to get wet Watch my video here! Because I made my own magical seascape! Whereas He likes to put on all the gear and Scuba Dive. While that is awesome for him, undeniably I am too afraid of not being in control.

Presently my Stampin’ Up! anniversary is almost here, indeed in June I will have been a Demonstrator for 19 years! Shockingly, I have done this job MUCH longer than I thought possible, nevertheless I have LOVED every moment!

Because I love it so much I can definitely tell you that I’d love having you join my team. Moreover, we get together every month and stamp/laugh and visit! For one thing, you may find that you also have a knack for crafting despite thinking you aren’t creative. Because that is what I did. Basically I was not creative vs my sister who was, at least I thought that. Then I discovered SU! and to my joy I found I DO have talent! Since I figured that out, I love to show others that they too can create lovely things chiefly because SU! makes it easy. Of course, they coordinate their colors! Because of that, no more trying to match cardstock to ribbon/rhinestones/ink!

Card time!

To Demonstrate how much I love creating, first let me show you my cards. Occasionally I have 3 or more cards, but today I have 2. Emphatically they are very pretty and are not ‘less than’. Overall I work hard on bringing you inspiration so I thought I would bring you some Underwater Magic!

I wanted to be a Discount shopper besides that I love that I get all kind of perks! Not only do I buy early AND at a discount, but I also get to travel and meet others with the same passion!

Window Sheet Card

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a card that was inspired by a card online. You can find a video of my card here. I think the creator is french, and her name is Lezards de Cilou. Here is the card that influenced me:

She called it a Tripod card.

Having seen other cards made with Window Sheets as the front of the card, I wanted to have another go! If you would like to see an additional card I made using Window Sheets click here. Here is what I made today:

Sorry that the lights are reflecting off the Window Sheet!

And on the inside we have the sentiment that is hidden by the birds when it is closed:

This card is so pretty in person! The colors go so well together! I love how Stampin’ Up!’s product coordinates together. When I realized this 19 years ago, I knew that I wanted to get the discount and become a Demo! What I didn’t know is that I would STILL be doing it AND loving every part of it!

Here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps: Free as a Bird, Lovely You (Brand NEW!!)
Inks: Memento Black, Old Olive, Rococo Rose, Blends: Rococo Rose, Old Olive, Soft Suede
Paper:Very Vanilla 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored @ 4 1/4″, 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, Whisper White 2″ x 4″ (for stamping birds, then fussy cut around, Old Olive 5 1/4″ x 4″, Window Sheet 5 1/2″ x 4 1/8″
Misc: 2020 – 2022 In Color Enamel Dots, MultiPurpose Liquid Glue, Stamping Sponges

When cutting the Ornate Flowers border, cut it on the edge of the cardstock so you can place the other edge against the Window Sheet. You will need to color the flowers by sponging over the center of the flowers using Rococo Rose, and the leaves with Old Olive, you will also want to sponge the edges of the cut out with the Old Olive, this will make it blend. To place this on the Window Sheet, use a Silicone Craft Sheet, place a puddle of Liquid Glue and pounce the sponge over the glue and holding the cut out still, pounce the back so you won’t see where you put the glue. This makes it so much prettier on the other side of the Window Sheet.

Hope you are doing well!
