Alright. So let me show you what I cooked up for the hop!


I was challenged to make something with the new Talk Bubbles stamp set. The large stamped bubble and the “happy birthday” sentiment” are from the set. I used the new Talk Bubbles dies to cut the smaller bubbles!

It’s no secret that I sorta like to mix and match things together… and might have be a bad secret keeper (Sorry, Kim! Wink!)… so I also used a couple other Paper Smooches’ stamp sets on this guy: the new & coming in January Scripty Sayings set for the Celebrate word and the classic Birthday Buddies set for the beaver.


So that’s what I have for you!

Happy hopping to you today! Hope you had a Merry Christmas!

  2. So fun! I love the speech bubbles and that little guy peeking up. And I am quite alright with your inability to keep secrets, feel free to spill anything you want here. 😉

  3. Great idea on not coloring the image just using the rest of the design to pull the colors. Great idea and love the sentiments and image. Fun card. Happy New Year.

  5. So clean and crisp! A fantastic card may I say! I am excited for the scripty sayings! Thank you for sharing your talent with us so often!

  6. Your card is adorable, Teri. (Is it bad that I always check your blog FIRST when I see your name on a list for blog hops? — Your cards are always so cute, fresh, and innovative!) I’m SO looking forward to seeing the whole release! Eighteen new products means that my wish list will grow by leaps and bounds. 🙂

  9. Oh man…. There’s a stamp set that hasn’t even come out and I already have to have it!!! Love the ‘celebrate’! And who can resist the beaver b-day buddy?? Awesome!

  10. Teri – I just have to take a moment to THANK YOU for all the inspiration you have given me over the years …I go to your blog EVERY DAY and am so thrilled when I see a new post 🙂 And, about three years ago you gave a challenge to MAKE cards instead of buying them … I have done exactly that, and have loved every minute of it! Each card I make is better than the last and I am feeling more confident, more excited, and more happy that I have reinforced a passion … I feel that these little bits of paper and glue truly make the receiver feel loved and happy – and it makes me so happy to make others smile 🙂 You have been a constant muse and inspiration to me! Thank you for your guidance, your creativity, and for the freedom and encouragement to TRY! You are amazing!
