Today’s Card

Hi guys!

Another day. Another project to share.

Meet today’s card.

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

Sharing this one because… ¬†well, I like it. ūüôā Simple as that. Sometimes, you make stuff and it doesn’t quite turn out¬†how you envisioned. And then, sometimes, everything works out just right. This one is one of those “just right” ones.

That fox? Stamped her with the new Frederick and Fiona stamps from Technique Tuesday. They are part of their new Animal House collection of stamps and dies. The words? They were cut with the new coordinating Frederick and Fiona dies.

The fox could easily be a boy but I wanted it to be a girl so I tied a little bow with twine and then plopped it on the top of her head. I think it would be fun for a boy to add a little bow and place it on the fox’s chest as a little bow tie of sorts. Just thinking aloud though.

Rather than coloring in the fox’s nose with markers, I used some black Nuvo drops. I like that it gave it a little dimension that markers would not have.

Alrighty, friends. That’s what I have for you today. I’ll be back again soon. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.

Today’s Gift Tag

Hi all!

 

Just quick little something to share with you today.

A handmade Valentine's tag created with stamps from Paper Smooches // terisplace.wordpress.com

Had some fun making this guy for Paper Smooches with the new Courteous Cuties stamp set (and dies) and For You tag die.

To give the little dude some color, I used ¬†a couple markers – a gray for highlights, a couple flesh tones for the legs and ears and a really soft pink for the cheeks. Those cheeks are pretty subtle but look really, really, really, really close and you’ll see them. See? Told you. Wink.

This tag could pretty much go on any¬†gift package. I decided instead to go all Valentine’s Day like with it and fill up a little bag with Valentine’s Candy Corn and then add it to it. Easy peasy.

Alright. That’s all I have you today. I’ll be back again later, friends. Hope you are having a super day.

A handmade card created for Paper Smooches by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Ta-da!

So I actually used a few new Paper Smooches products on this bad boy.

Cut those white words with the new Happy Birthday 2 dies. Stamped the “ewe” word with ¬†the new¬†Courteous Cuties 2 stamp. And those cute little sheep? Yep. Stamped those with the new¬†Courteous Cuties stamp set (and coordinating dies). Fun stuff!

I went a bit hog wild, creating the little scene with hills cut with the Borders 1 dies and hearts with the Hearts dies. I also added some white dots with Nuvo’s Gloss White Crystal Drops. Turned out pretty fun.

See¬†“ewe” again real soon!

Christmas Card Challenge 2016: 5

Hi guys!

Back again with another take on this year’s Christmas Card Challenge with Ashley.

This is today’s card.

I once again used pulled out a Lawn Fawn stamp set. I used just one this time. That was the Snow Cool stamp set (and coordinating dies). I couldn’t resist adding bow ties to the penguins. I mean, it just gives them a little extra special character. You agree?

To make the hills seem a little more icy, I once again whipped out some glitter glue and put it along the slopes.

Alright. This is all I have for today. Be sure to bop on by Ashley’s blog to see her latest take on the challenge.

Christmas Card Challenge: 4

Hi guys!

Another day. Another crack at this year’s Christmas Card Challenge with Ashley!

Just continued having some stamp-tastic fun by making this card.

I went Lawn Fawn stamp crazy… or cray cray, as some would say. ūüėČ ¬†I used all these stamp sets: Winter Alpaca; Happy Trails; Toboggan Together and Snow Cool. I also used the coordinating dies for all them, other than Snow Cool. Just used the sentiment and snowy pattern (at the top of the card) for that one.

The little hills in the background were cut with a die from My Favorite Things.

To make the snow pop, I once again whipped out some Nuvo Crystal Drops and added a few few dots to the snow. I think like how it just added a little bit of texture, as well as a bit of dimension too. Kinda fun!

Alright, so this is day 4 of the challenge.

Be sure to hit Ashley’s blog to see her take on this time. I’ll be back again Monday with another card based on the challenge.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by. I appreciate your kind words.

Christmas Card Challenge 2016: 3

Hi guys!

I’m back again with another take on this year’s Christmas Card Challenge with my pal, Ashley.

This is card for today.

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

I wanted to be clean and graphic today so I whipped out the Very Merry stamp set from Neat and Tangled. It’s got some great words to pair together. I played it simple by going with a basic Christmas greeting.

To give the card just a little bit of glitz, I added some glitter gold washi tape and a couple gold sequins. So easy but totally effective in getting the card done.

So that’s what I have for you today. Be sure to stop by Ashley’s blog to see her take on challenge today. I’m sure it won’t disappoint.

See you again soon, friends.

 

 

 

Christmas Card Challenge 2016: 2

Hi guys!

Another day. Another take on my Christmas Card Challenge with Ashley.

Here is today’s Christmas card.

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

Just had some fun with this one. Shopped my stamping stash and pulled out some awesome Lawn Fawn stamp sets and dies: Happy Trails; Toboggan Together and Snow Cool. One of things I dig quite a lot about Lawn Fawn is it’s so easy to mix and match their products together. I’m pretty sure all these things are from different releases. Kinda fun that they can all play together.

So I was going for a little snowy scene here. To make that stamped snowy background pop a little more, I added some dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops. I think it just gives the background a nice feel.

Also to make the scene a little more magical, I added some glitter glue to the top of the snowdrifts. Such an easy thing to do. Just required a little extra patience to give the glue time to dry.

Ok. That’s what I have today. Be sure to check out Ashley’s blog to see her latest take on the challenge.
