I played with the new Get Outta Town Icons dies, which happen to coordinate with the Get Outta Town stamp set. It’s the perfect set for Summer… and summer fun!

I layered the trees together.Look close and you’ll see I popped up one of the trees with foam tape. I did the same thing for the plane.

And the words? Well, that’s kind of a peek at the new release too. They are from the new Happy Travels stamp set. So fun when things work together.

Alright! That’s what I have. I’ll be back again later. Thanks for stopping by.

Today’s card… kinda (4-14)

Hi all!

Got a little card to share with you today.:)

A handmade stamped card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Made this one last week when I just needed a little bit of recharge/refuel creative time. Never got around to sharing it so I am today.

(Insert dramatic effect.)

The little bird is from Julie Ebersole’s Twelve Days stamp set for Ellen Hutson. There’s a little number included on the stamp that I just masked off with tape before inking the stamp and stamping.

Nobody die of shock or anything, but I used MARKERS (… yes, the marker challenged girl…) to color the cutie in. I have been messing with markers more than usual lately. It remains a sweet surprise when things turn out.😉

The words are from Julie’s Hello Gorgeous set, also from Ellen Hutson.

And the circles and backgrounds? Cut those with a couple dies from My Favorite Things – Wonky Stitched Circles STAX and Snow Drifts Cover-Up. And the sequins? A mix from Pretty Pink Posh, of course.

Alright. That’s what I have for you. Good to see you all again. I’ll be back again later, gators. Take care.

Hey Hey Hey handmade card by Teri //terisplace.wordpress.com

Ta-da! I played around with the new Boob Tubes dies that work perfectly with the coordinating Boob Tubes stamp set.

I wanted to do something different so I cut and stamped three TVs and stacked them up. I used Paper Smooches’ class Party Posse stamp set to the stamp the critters onto the screens.

Hey Hey Hey handmade card by Teri //terisplace.wordpress.com

To give the card a little dimension, I applied glossy accents the TV buttons, as well as on the critters eyes and noses. That gives them just the right amount of pop, in my opinion.

Well, that’s all I have today. I’ll be back again later, gators. Hope to see you again soon. (I hope.)

Today’s Not a Card Project

Hi all!

Sharing something other than a card today. Thought I’d share a couple of planner pages.

Let’s be honest, guys!  Some weeks, I just don’t feel like decorating much and go totally clean. Other weeks, I go to town.

Planner pages with planner stamps by Teri // Terisplace.wordpress.com

 

This week was a going to town kinda week. Just needed some creative time so I took some time to decorate my pages. I think one of the nice things about decorating your planner you can be creative with purpose and get yourself thinking about the week to come. Plus, you get to use that fun stuff you’ve been wanting to use! Love that.

Did the bulk of my decorating for these pages with stamps from Technique Tuesday. I also used some stickers (letters and cute stuff) and some papers from Simple Stories. The Simple Stories goods were definitely a fun way to add a pop of color or two… or three or four… wink!

I did add a couple pieces of paper for lists onto the spread and clipped them on so I could write on them as the week goes on and pull them out when I need them. I could have just used sticky notes but I was using what was at hand and in close reach of my workplace.

Alright! That’s what I’ve got.

You’ll find a list below of the stamp sets I used.

Other supplies:

See you again soon, friends!

Today’s Card

Hi guys!

Happy weekending! This post is short and sweet, but I’ve got a little something to share with you today. Short and sweet is better than nothing, right?

So… yep… meet today’s card.

I Miss Your Face handmade card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Ta-da!

Just a bunch of different things on this one. A little bit of this and a little bit of that. Probably the most notable things on it are the butterfly and words from Paper Smooches… and the white tag (cut with the This Tag dies) from Technique Tuesday.

S’all I have today. Be back again later, gators.

PS_Label5die_teri.jpg

Just having some fun here with the new Frame 5 die (as well as the new Precious Mom stamp set and Cute Cluster die). Yes. I totally went wild with the new stuff.😉

I cut a couple of the flower clusters from white cardstock. Figured out where I wanted to put them. Sponged ink onto the card in circles and then plopped the flowers on top. I added a little gold thread and then set the frame (cut twice… from white and black cardstock…so I had an inside and outside) on top. I stamped the word right into the middle.

PS_Label5dieclose_teri.jpg

And then … just for fun… I added some brads and enamel dots. Those little touches just kinda make things a little more fun, I think, when it comes to cards. You agree?

Alright! That’s what I have for you today. Thanks for stopping by, guys! Always a treat when you do. See you again soon!

 

Today’s card

Hi guys!

Lots going on out here lately. Not a lot of time to share projects with you.

But got a card to share with you today.:)

You're So Tweet by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Ta-da! Cha-cha!

Made this one with the new Bird Friends stamp set from Technique Tuesday. Gave the birds that funky texture by coloring them by dots (mostly) with Copic markers and then setting a little piece of paper towel soaked with Blender solution on top. It was fun to do.

SoTweetBirdsclose_teri

I’d been thinking for awhile about stacking the birds so that’s what I did. I stamped them and then stacked. The main part of each of their little bodies was stamped and colored on a second piece of cardstock. So yeah. I didn’t actually mask. I was TOTALLY lazy. I just cut their little bodies out with my scissors and then plopped ’em onto the card. I think they turned out pretty cute though.

Alright. That’s what I have. I’ll be back at you later, gators.

I’ll see you again … sooner.😉
