Check it.

Hey You card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Ta-da!

Feeling a bit sassy again today as I made this one. 🙂 The “hey you” sticker is from a pack stickers for the Happy Planner from Me & My Big Ideas. I felt like it was just screaming for that “for real” sticker (from Bella Blvd) to be added to it… and so I did.

The black strips at the edge of the card are super fancy. It’s a bit hard to tell from the picture, but they are all glittery. They were made a piece of glittery tape from Heidi Swapp. I just cut the strip in half (vertically). Put the two pieces on the card and then slapped the patterned paper on top.

Alright! That’s what I have got.

Thanks for stopping by. Be back later, gators.

Hello!

We meet again. Almost to the end of the 14 (love cards) in 14 (days) challenge with Ashley. Well, technically, it’s 15 days since we decided to take a break yesterday, but it just doesn’t have the same ring to it. So yeah, we’re still calling it 14 in 14.

Today’s card is clean and graphic and was a quick one to make.

I used a die from Simon Says Stamp! that I think is one of the coolest dies I’ve seen in a long time. The Heart Breeze die embosses stitch lines but also cuts out the hearts and small circles at the same time. Genius, I tell you!

To give it a little extra something, I used a white pen to add some additional dots to the design. I think it just kind of adds a little pop to take the card from cool to coolio. No, guys, not that Coolio. Although I am a fan of that Coolio.  Hello, karaoke! 🙂

The letter stickers are just some old stickers I had lying around. It was fun to put them to use. I’ve got to challenge myself to do that again.

Be sure to stop by Ashley’s blog to see what she is sharing today! And I’ll be back again tomorrow. Hope to see you then.

I had a chance to play with the brand new Fun & Flirty stamp set. That’s where the sentiment on this card comes from.

I also (cough, cough) played with the new Botanicals 2 dies. They coordinate with the popular Botanicals 2 stamp set. I am always one for untraditional and bold color combos so that’s what I went with here by using the green, blue and orange color combo. I think it looks kinda cool.

For good measure… and to bring everything together… I slapped on a couple sequins when I was about finished with the card. They are “almost” the same color as the the blue leaf, and I told myself that that was good enough today.

Alright! That’s what I have!

Thanks for stopping by and for leaving a comment. I always enjoy reading them. See you again soon!

Hi all!

Well, we’re getting there. It’s Day 10 of the 14 (love) cards in 14 (days) challenge with my pal, Ashley.

14 in 14 Love Cards for Valentine's Day Challenge // terisplace.wordpress.com

Got another card to share with you. I haven’t tuckered out yet…. well, so far.  Hope you have been enjoying these cards as I’ve enjoyed making them.

A handmade love card // terisplace.wordpress.com

Just a bunch of things I had laying in my pile of craft supplies that I whipped together to make this guy.

I wanted to be a little playful with this one so I added the Goofball sticker (from Bella Blvd.) to the sentiment. Thought it might be a fun card to send to a friend for Valentine’s Day or as a just because card to just remind her that she’s pretty spiffy.

Not much else to say. So be sure to pop on by Ashley’s blog to see her take on today’s challenge.

I’ll be back in a bit with the monthly Paper Smooches Design Team blog hop!

PS. I was up on the Simple Stories blog on Wednesday with some birthday cards. This was my last post as a Simple Stories Design Team member. Hope you will check it out.

Here’s a small sneak peek.

Hi again!

It’s me, and guess what? Yep. Got another 14 (cards) in 14 (days) challenge card to share with you.

14 in 14 Love Cards for Valentine's Day Challenge // terisplace.wordpress.com

This is today’s love-themed card.

This Much Love card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Just a simple one that’s a bit on the shabby side. Pulled together a bunch of different patterned paper scraps, as well as some really old chipboard hearts, tags and flowers (and corners) from Crate Paper. Remember the card I shared a couple days ago with chipboard from Crate Paper? These are from the same really, really, really old sheet of chipboard stickers. 😉 I’m kind of the mindset to “leave no cute thing behind.”

Once again, I whipped out the Love You So by Julie Ebersole stamp set from Ellen Hutson to stamp set to stamp my sentiment. Just dig that set… a lot.

That does it for today.

Be sure to stop by Ashley’s blog. I’m sure she’s got some awesome based on our challenge to share with you. See you again tomorrow.

Hello again!

Back again with one more take on the 14 (love cards) in 14 (days) challenge with Ashley.

14 in 14 Love Cards for Valentine's Day Challenge // terisplace.wordpress.com

I went all friendship-y today… because you gotta show your friends love too. Ya know? 😉

Hello Bestie card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

I went pretty non-traditional too, mostly using supplies with non-traditional love colors from Echo Park Paper’s Best Friends Forever Mini Theme Kit. It’s just a fun little kit with paper and stickers with a friendship theme.

I mixed together a couple of the papers. I took one big piece of paper with circles on it and punched the heck-o-la out of it with a circle punch to make those big circles to put on my card.  And then I just went kinda crazy with stickers and did a bit of clustering. For good measure, I added a few sequins and a stitch line…. and a few other little things.

I think it turned out pretty fun!

Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her take today on the challenge. Be back tomorrow.

Hi all!

Another day. Another take on the 14 in 14 challenge with Ashley.

14 in 14 Love Cards for Valentine's Day Challenge // terisplace.wordpress.com

Meet today’s love-themed card.

Favorite Love Card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Ta-da!

Just had some fun today, whipping out some new to me (but totally hidden in my stash for a really, really, really long time) chipboard stickers from Crate Paper. Yep. The frame, the lips, the heart and the mustache are from that really, really, really old piece of chipboard.

The papers are from Pebbles and Crate Paper. And the words? They are from the Love You So by Julie Ebersole stamp set from Ellen Hutson. So many good phrases in that one.

Favorite Love Card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

A little trick for you. I stamped the words before I added the chipboard stuff, although I figured out where I wanted it all first. Since I put some foam adhesive under the lips and mustache to elevate them, I was worried about getting ink on my block and accidentally touching them… so stamp first and adhere later.

So that’s what I have for you today. Be sure to stop by Ashley’s blog to see her take today on the challenge.
