Alright! Enough with the hop talk. Let me share with you the card I made for the hop! On your mark. Get set. And go!

A stamped card for Paper Smooches by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

Created this guy with the brand new Vespa die! It’s such a fun die. I die-cut the bike twice from white cardstock. I used markers to color the pieces on the first die-cut, not worrying if I went onto the lines. Then I removed the pieces from the second die-cut and adhere the white “frame” on top. It’s a pretty fun way to use intricate dies! TeriVespaDie-close

The sentiments are all from the previously released Hello Sampler stamp set. I really just took a bunch of words and phrases from the set and paired them together until they looks like a fun phrase for the card.

Sure looking forward to sending this card to a friend!

Thanks again, friends, for stopping by and checking out the hop. It’s always a pleasure when you do stop by!

See you again soon!

2019 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – 2

http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2019/05/2019-spring-summer-coffee-lovers-blog-hop-2/

Hi, guys!

Sneaking in, under the wire, with just one more card for the Spring | Summer 2019 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

A stamped coffee card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

Just having fun, playing around, with this card. The cups were created with the new Daddy Yo 2 stamp set (and Daddy Yo Icons dies) from Paper Smooches. The stamp set is a guy-themed set, but it’s possible with the elements in it to make girl coffee cup. 🙂

My go-to colors for a “girl” coffee cup are pink and red, but I decided to throw caution to the wind this time and make a purple cup. It’s a color I don’t often color with.

Oh, and just for kicks, I decided to make the girl cup’s glasses seem a little more real by adding a few small drops of Glossy Accents to the lenses.  Just a fun little touch.

The words are from the Dude Sampler stamp set, also from Paper Smooches.

Ok! That’s it for me today. Thank you for stopping by. Once again, before to check out the hop. So many amazing projects. Great job, everybody!

Spring 2019 | Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – 1

http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2019/05/2019-spring-summer-coffee-lovers-blog-hop-2/

Hi, guys!

Just squeaking in a last minute card in honor of the latest Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

I’ve been busy with life stuff so haven’t had much time to craft during the hop this time. Such a bum dog. The hop always inspires me to get to my craft table… and play, play, play! But, at least, I’ve got one card for the hop, even if it is the last day! 😉

A stamped card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

Created this little card with the new Tea-riffic stamp set from The Letter Lingo. Such a darling little set. Rather than going all coffee like for this one (because the genius of the set is can be used to make coffee or TEA cards), I decided to make a tea-themed card.CLP_CupofTea2_teri

Did a little “old school” masking so the girl would look like she was peeking around the cup.

Totally last minute decision to add the sentiment to the cup. Originally, I’d been planning to stamp it elsewhere but saw it would fit perfectly on it and ran with it.

Alright! That’s it for me. I’ll be back again later, gators. Thanks for stopping by! And don’t forget to check out the hop! There are so many lovely projects linked up to it!

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

Created this bad boy with the new Daddy Yo 2 stamp set ad Daddy Yo 2 Icons dies. (I also used the Fab Frames dies from last months’ release.)

Nothing really super fancy to share about this card other than I did lots and lots of coloring. 🙂

I thought this card might be a good one to give a favorite male family member or a good male friend.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and the hop! I’ll be back again later. Thanks for stopping by!

Today’s card (4-12)

Hi, everyone!

Dropping by today to share a card created with one of Paper Smooches’ new crafting dies. I’m just so excited to send this card to one of my stamping friends.

A handmade "Missing You" card by Teri | Created with Paper Smooches stamps & dies

The flowers were created with the new Stemmed Rose Dies. Rather than doing a bunch of paper piecing and all, I cut them from white cardstock and then used my markers to add a little color to them. It is kind of a tedious task with thin, intricate dies, but I think the results are almost always stunning.

TeriStemmedRoseDiesCLOSE

Now, this card has a fun little twist. The die set comes with a mat die. Rather than matting the flowers onto mats, I used the mat die to cut a window out out of the front of the card. I placed one of the flowers inside the card, right so you could see it through the window.

TeriStemmedRoseDiesClose2

One thing I did on the front of the card, to make the flowers stand out on it, was I opened it and sponging a little blue ink onto it. I did it softly, over and over in a circle. I also added a sentiment (perfect for my stamping friend) from the Fun & Flirty stamp set.

To finish things off, I added couple sequins. They are always a nice, fairly flat, way of finishing a card.

Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be back again later, gators.

PS. Don’t miss this post I shared over the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog recently! It shows a fun way to use foil to make a wedding card!

Alright, enough hop talk. Let’s get on with the card.

A handmade card featuring stamps and dies from Paper Smooches

Created this little guy with the new Mini Flowers Dies. All the flowers were made by mixing and matching the little dies together. No real rhyme or reason on my part… just being random for the fun of it. 🙂

The vase was cut with the mat die from the new Stemmed Rose Dies. I actually cut off the flower part and kinda just ran with it. I think the card is cute but modern… or modern but cute… by pairing the dies together.

The words are from the previously released Fun & Flirty stamp set. It’s such a fun set of sentiments that are perfect to send to your card making buddies.
Alrighty, friends. That is all I have for you today. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and check out the hop! See you again soon!

Calling All Planners…

(Looking for my Paper Smooches Blog Hop post? It’s the post right below this one!)

Are you a planner? Just getting into planning? I’ve got a tutorial for you.

Stop by the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog for a quick tutorial on making your own page markers for your planner, as well as Washi tape storage cards.

TeriAnderson-PlannerTabsAndTapeStorageCards-1

These page makers (and storage cards) are a fun way to add a pop of color (and your personality) to your planner. Plus it is a great way to use up some of the patterned papers and stickers that might (emphasis on might) be in your stash of crafting supplies.

I’d be tickled if you’d check out the post.
