You should have arrived at this hop from the blog of the incredible Sandy Allnock. I’m Teri. And the stop after me is the blog of the amazing Laurel Beard. 🙂
So let me show you what I cooked up with the new goods!
Meet card #1.
I just plain had fun with this one, pulling out images from the Stay Salty stamp set and coordinating dies. I had big dreams of doing just one little scene, but then was like, “I’m going for more, baby!” so I did just that with the 4 little scenes.
I add some little touches, like inking the life preserver and the mermaid’s tail and adding some vellum to the boat. Oh, and I went a little old school too by adding lots of inking to the edges. Maybe not old school, but timeless. That’s probably a better way of saying it.
And meet card #2.
So I went kinda wild with this one! My need to go freestyle was high!
The sunshine panels from the new Silver Linings die set are pretty cool! They have a cool pattern of sun rays. I was messing around and found them to be kinda foldable so I cut a whole bunch and folded them to make that funky pattern.
It was fun to do!
The words are from the new Warm Fuzzies stamp set. It’s a great set with lots of words.
The sun is from the previously released All Inside stamp set, while the little hat? It’s from the new Bear Ware stamp set and coordinating dies. I’m a huge fan of mixing and matching so it’s fun to be able to do that with so many of the Essentials by Ellen stamps and dies! (THANK YOU, Ellen!)
Alright! That’s what I have for you!
Thanks for stopping by today!
And don’t forget to visit Laurel, who is the next stop on the hop-a-roo! Take it away Laurel!
