A handmade card by Teri, creating with Paper Smooches products

Created this card with the new Rainbow Sherbet dies. I cut a line in the typewriter and then cut a piece of cardstock to fit in it so it would like the sentiment really was typed.

The words are from a couple different stamp sets:  Noteworthy and Delightful Greetings. They were part of larger sentiments so I did a little masking by covering up the unneeded words with washi tape while I inked the stamps.

The papers on the card are also from Paper Smooches. They are from the previously released Rainbow Sherbet paper pack. I really like the color combo.

Alright. That’s it for me. I’ll be back later, friends. Thanks for hopping today and stopping by my blog-a-roo!

A Couple Cards… that have been FRAMED!

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to give you a little peek at a couple cards I shared this week over on the blog for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

TeriAnderson-CardsWithFrames-1

You’ll the scoop on how I made them… and some tips for using their 3D Foam Frames in my post over there. Such a fun foam shape to use to make stuff.

By the way, I was super excited about these card with the color scheme. I don’t often use purple on my cards (or really on anything for that matter). It sure was fun to step out of my creative box.

Anyway, hope you’ll check out the post! See you again soon!

A Couple of Magical Unicorn Cards

Hi, guys!

Got a couple cards to share with you today! Made these two critter cards last week and just getting around to sharing them.

UnicornCards-1-teri

Is the unicorn not the cutest ever? My friend, Nina, sent the unicorn die over to play with for the fun of it. It’s from Waffle Flower Crafts, and I truly imagine making a ton of cards with it. It. Just. Plain. Makes. Me. Happy.

I used it somewhat the same and somewhat different. I added a heart (diecut with dies from Lawn Fawn) to each unicorn, plus added color with markers. (I also added hearts in the background.) For one of the unicorns, I added sparkle with glitter glue (that’s the white one). For the other unicorn, I added some sparkle with a Wink of Stella pen. It’s subtle but so, so pretty.

UnicornCards-2-teri

The sentiment on both cards is from the Encouraging Greetings set from Pretty Pink Posh. It’s quickly become one of my favorites to use for creating cards for friends. It’s pretty much on my desk all the time… wink!

Alrighty! That is all I have for you. Be back later, gators.

Enough blog hop talk. Let’s get to the card!

TeriHappyHellosStampSet

Created this guy with the brand new Happy Hellos stamp set and Happy Hello Icons dies. I also added some hearts cut with the Tiny Hearts dies. (By the way, did you take Kathy’s Coloring Road Trip class on Online Card Classes? I applied some of her tips from to color in the bees. Boy, I sure love the end result! Thanks for tips, Kathy!)
Created the background paper myself with the ink and the Buffalo Check Stencil. I have made so many background papers with it. It’s so darn fun!

A stamped snowman and fox card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

This was such a fun card to make! I created the background by cutting several snowflakes with the new Huge Snowflakes dies. I lightly (very, very, very lightly) sponged sponged some black ink where I was going to place the large snowflakes and then added them to it. (Side note: I actually cut all the snowflakes from white cardstock and then added color with ink to some of them before I got to creating. Could have saved time by just cutting them from colored cardstock, but I decided not to.)

Once I added the big snowflakes, I added a few small ones, as well as a few white Nuvo Crystal Dots.

TeriHugeSnowflakesDies-2

The snowman and fox were stamped and die-cut with the new Winter Greetings stamps and Winter Greetings Icons dies. I colored them in with good ol’ alcohol ink markers. I also added a stamped sentiment to a banner cut with the Vanilla Verbiage Icons dies. For good measure, I sponged a little black ink along the edges of the banner. Anyway, I think it turned out pretty cute. Hope you like it.
