Ta-da!

I created this guy with a couple new Paper Smooches products, the Summer Tree die and the Hello Sampler stamp set.

I played it simple, cutting the three out from white cardstock and cream cardstock. To make the leafy portion of the tree stand out, I sponged green ink in a circle behind it. It’s subtle but I think it really helps add to the card.

That little baby heart? It’s from the Summer Tree die too. I just thought it was so cute that I had (HAD, I tell you) to add it.:)

Alright! That’s what I have.

Thanks so much for swinging by today, guys! I appreciate it when you do!

Hero Arts Summer 2016 Release Blog Hop

Hi everyone!

So tickled today to be joining some of my favorite makers in celebrating the Summer 2016 release from Hero Arts with a blog hop!

Hero Arts products have been part of my creative arsenal for a really long, long time. In fact, some of the very first stamps I ever used (…. and maybe collected… maybe… hee hee) were from Hero Arts. So it’s an extra special treat to take part. (Thanks for having me, Hero Arts friends.)

I’ve got three projects to share with you. Each of them use the new City Adventure stamp set. And I’m a fan of mixing and matching so I’ve used some other Hero Arts stamps with them.

So I’d like to introduce you to card #1.

Handmade stamped card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.comI went pretty graphic here. I  wanted to create a city scene of sorts. I started by making those dots to stamp the cityscape on. To make those dots in the background, I just took an ink applicator and applied inks directly to cardstock.

And then I built the scene around it, adding the taxi and “let’s go” phrase. The card needed a little more so I added the sun and “roam” and “get lost” phrases from The Adventure Begins to it. And then I drew the black line  under the taxi.

HA_ExploreClose_teri

I think it turned out pretty fun!

These next two cards are destination specific… or location specific, I guess.:)

The bird and sign are from the City Adventure set. If you have ever watched that show “Portlandia”, you’ve  probably heard a reference to putting a bird on things.😉

The food truck and words are from Kelly’s Portland stamp set by Kelly Purkey. Food trucks are huge here. I stamped the truck, colored it in and then used my trusty scissors to fussy cut it out. It’s popped up on the card with foam tape.

And this little scene was inspired some of the parks in Portland. The trees and sun are from The Adventure Begins, while the bike, light and bench are all from City Adventure. Bikes are everywhere in Portland. Might say it’s a thing here.

To make the light and legs of the bench stand out, I used a white gel pen to color them in. I also added a little white to the Portland letters. If you look really close you can see it.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these cards and are enjoying the hop!

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.

PS_GetOutOfTownIconsDies2_teri

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.
