Today’s cards and a big giveaway (9-29)

Hello! πŸ™‚

I’ve got two things on my list today – cards and a big giveaway.

First, meet today’s cards. Yep. There’s 2 of them today!

Meet #1.


The papers here are from Basic Grey (pink, green and purple), American Crafts (yellow and orange) and Graphic 45 (blue). The butterflies are a punch from Martha Stewart. And the sentiment is a stamp from Papertrey Ink’s 2009 Autumn Tags set.

Meet #2.


I used the same papers, punch and stamp set on this one. I also threw in someΒ  October Afternoon paper. That’s what I punched the butterfly out of.

So hopefully you like these cards because I want to give away some kits to make ones just like them. I’veΒ  put together 10 kits to make one of each card.


Leave a message for me here on by this post by 5 p.m. EST on Friday (Oct. 2nd). I’ll pick 10 of you at random to send the kits to. Let me warn you that sometimes comments don’t appear on my blog right away and I have to approve them first. Never fear. I get a notice each time someone posts. IΒ  the unapproved onesΒ  just as soon as I see them.

Also, a word of caution about the kits. This is just a Teri thing that I thought would be fun and different to do on my blog. I also thought it would be fun to do in the spirit of World Card Making Day.

Everything in the kits is cut, punched and stamped. You will have to provide your own adhesive,Β  Old Paper Distress Ink (to ink the edges of the circles… if you want) and staples and stapler. The kits do include instructions and a colored picture of the cards. Kits also do not include stamp sets or physical punches (Butterfly punchies cut from punches are in the kits. Physical punches to punch are not.).

Anyway, good luck. I hope someone out there is interested.

And thank you for stopping by today! I will be back tomorrow.

  26. Teri, I think this is just an AWESOME idea! We should all be doing this – it’s a wonderful way to share Card Making Day, get new ideas and make a friend or two. My skills are NOTHING like yours, but I’d like to send you two kits because I can’t think of a nicer way to thank you for the idea. Email me? Or leave me a message on my very lame blog? Thanks again for the great idea!

  27. I love your style Teri and found you through your Papertrey work. Now, I stop by often to see your creations, I love how you re-purpose packaging items, what great ideas! Thanks for the chance to win one of your kits!

  28. Love these cards…simple, a great way to use up paper scraps (anyone else have a HUGE stash of pieces of paper they just can not bear to part with?), with wonderful sentiments that mean they can be used almost any time for men, women, or children! What is NOT to love about that!

  29. Teri, I’m such a huge fan of your “clean” card style. I’d love to win a card kit to make those cards. They’re beautiful!
