Season’s Givings Blog Hop (1-1)

SeasonsGivingsimage

Hi all!

It’s a nice day to be hopping with friends and giving back a little.

Banding together today with some lovely crafters today for the Season Givings Blog Hop! This blog hop (the brainchild of my pal Latisha) is a little different than most blog hops. That’s because everyone taking part is giving away something.

It’s a fun way to start off 2013!

Ok, so, meet today’s card and my project for the hop-a-roo!

2_Puffy_PuffyHeart_teri

The heart and words are a new stamp set (called Puffy Hearts) from TechniqueTuesday.com. It debuts sometime on 1/1 (like after the crew gets to work! Wink!) as part of their Valentine’s Day release. (Believe me, this is just the start of a lot more stamps from TT. They have A LOT that will debut at the CHA trade show in a couple weeks, too!)

The mustache, wiggle eyes and brad (and washi tape) are from stash of supplies.

Speaking of my stash of supplies, I’ve got a little stash of supplies to give to one of you.

BlogHop_Givings_teri

In it is just an assortment of stamps, stickers, twine, embellishments and more. Leave a comment for me by midnight on 1/3, and I’ll pick one of you to win the goods!

Alright. That’s all I have got. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Be sure to check out the blogs of everyone taking part in the hop!

Be back again tomorrow. Tomorrow. Yes, indeed, tomorrowwwwww. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks for stopping by, y’all!

Today’s card (12-31)

Hello again!

Meet today’s card.

2_Pucker_HeartSoar_teri

This one uses another new stamp set from the (to-be-debuted Tuesday) Valentine’s Day release from Technique Tuesday.

The set is called Pucker Up. It has a whole bunch of little Valentine’s decorations and matching words (phone, lips, conversation bubbles, etc.). You can see more peeks of these set from Laura and Ashley , who shared a couple totally cute (like totally) projects they’ve made with it. Nice job, guys!

By the way, the polka dots on my card are from TT’s Passion for Polka set. Definitely one of my Go-to stamp sets. The twine is from The Twinery.

‘Tis all for now. Be back in a flash.

Today’s card (12-30)

Hi all!

Back again with today’s card. ๐Ÿ˜‰

2_Dig_DigYou_teri

Made this one with a new stamp set from Technique Tuesday. It’s called Dig You and is part of their Valentine release.

Their Valentine release (which also includes two more stamp sets from the person who designed this set and some fabulous new love-themed stamps from Ali Edwards) will debut sometime Tuesday on their Web site. The small release will give you a taste of what is to come (and will be introduced) in a few weeks at CHA. (Yep, lots, lots more stamps to come!)

Everything on this was stamped with the new set. Well, other than those little gems. They were just a fun, last minute “card needs something” add-on. ๐Ÿ˜‰

2_Dig_DigYouClose

Be back again tomorrow with another card made with one of the new Valentine sets.

Thanks for stopping by!

jan_grump2_ter

Today’s cards (12-26)

Hi all!

Just two little cards today to share.

Meet #1.

2_tt_Thankyoufriends1_teri

And meet #2.

2_tt_NothingBetter1_teri

Both were made quickly made for another challenge with Technique Tuesday to make a thank you card or two.

Both use the So Very Thankful by Ali Edwards stamp set, which is one of my faves these days.

2_tt_thankyoufriends2_teri

The second one also uses their Two Steppin’ set. Kinda fun to stamp the flower in the set over and over to make a patterned paper like I did here. Definitely going to need to do that again.

2_tt_nothingbetter3_teri

That’s all for now. Be back later, gators.

Technique Tuesday: Greenhouse Society (12-25)

Merry Christmas to all of you out there!

I’m taking a break from the family festivities to share a quick card with you so meet today’s card.

2_tt_gh_dec2_nothingb_teri

The flowers are from the new December Greenhouse Society stamp set from Technique Tuesday. The words are from the So Very Thankful by Ali Edwards stamp set.

I whipped out my colored pencils and used them to color the flowers. The flower is such that it’s pretty forgiving for a non-skilled color’er like myself. ๐Ÿ˜‰

2_TT_GH_Dec_2_NothingBClose

I stamped the flowers on the white circle (it’s just a circle of cardstock) and colored them in. I made sure to wrap the twine around the green and white panels before adhering the circle. Because… believe me… there are times… I remember my plan to do that later… much later.

The little dots cascading down the side are gems.

Be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog today. There are some pretty fab projects made with this new Greenhouse Society stamp set up there today.

Be back later! Thanks again for stopping by, all!
