Today’s card (2-18)

Hi everyone!

Another day. Another card to share.

A stamped card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Such a fun little scene to put together!

Most of the images and words are from Lawn Fawn’s Gleeful Gardens stamp set. I also used the coordinating dies.

As it warms up here, mushrooms have begun popping up in my yard. If only the mushrooms in my yard were so delightful as the ones in the stamp set. πŸ˜‰

I once again created the cloudy background with the help of My Favorite Things’ Cloud stencil. Boy, how I love that tool.

That’s all I have for now. I’ll be back again later, friends. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.

Today’s card (2-17)

Hi gang!

Just stopping by to share a card today that was over the one Paper Smooches blog last week.

A handmade card by Teri for Paper Smooches // terisplace.wordpress.com

Truly, I think I smiled the entire time I was making this little card.

The fruits are all from the Fruitastic stamp set, an oldie but still seriously cool goodie from PS. The cart was cut with their Grocery Cart die, which is on sale right now for a killer price of $5.

I was feeling a bit adventurous when I made this card. Rather than using my Copic markers, I used some Spectrum Noir markers I inherited to do the coloring. Not like there’s much of a difference with alcohol ink based markers, but there is a curve figuring out what markers blend together in a way that makes you happy, you know. πŸ™‚

To finish out my little scene, I added a few hearts (cut with a Paper Smooches die), as well as a few sequins and dots (made with Nuvo Crystal Dots…. I’m an addict. I can’t stop. Heehee!)

Alright! I’m totally out of things to say so that’s all I got. Keeping it real. That’s me. (Wink!)

Thanks for stopping by, guys!

Today’s card (2-16)

Hi gang!

Me again. Feeling the card vibe still. Got another one to share with you.

So meet today’s card.

Thought this might be a fun card to send to a friend.

The little food images are from Lawn Fawn’s Sweet Friends stamp set (and coordinating dies). The words are from the stamp set too.

IΒ  originally picked up the stamp set and was all set on going die-free with it. But those arms and legs? Yeah. Totally sucked me into to getting the dies to use with the stamps. They are just… kinda… sorta… awesome. πŸ™‚

The papers are once again from my box of scraps. I actually think the polka dots are from Lawn Fawn. The ledger paper is not. (Fancy Pants, I believe.)

Yet again I added some dots with some white Nuvo Crystal Drops. Always such a fun addition.

Alright! Tis’ it for now. Be back again later, gators. Thank you again for stopping by!

Today’s card (2-14)

Hi everyone!

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m here again with a card in honor of the big day.

A stamped card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

I once again dug into my stash of Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. Sometimes, you just got use things that make you happy. Truly, Lawn Fawn does that for me. Just such a happy line of products.

I used mostly stamps from the Bugs and Kisses set (and coordinating dies).pinklovebugscard2-teri

Pretty simple, straight-forward card so there isn’t too much to say. Other that I must admit that I was somewhat (even as I write this I am) over the little black dots I added to the card with my (beloved) Nuvo Crystal Drops. I got a little crazy and got a little too much drop (and splattered) near one of the hearts. I easily could have tossed the card… or came up with some way to hide it… but in keeping it real, I’m running with it by (1) keeping the card as it is and (2) showing you … and pointing it out. So yeah. πŸ˜‰

Anyhoooooo, that’s what I have for you. Thanks, as always, for stopping by!

Sending you lots of happy thoughts this Valentine’s Day!

Today’s card (2-12)

Hi guys!

Back again on the blog-a-roo with another card to share with you.

Give it up for today’s card.

A stamped card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Made this guy in my quest to ink up some the stamps in my stash that haven’t seen much love in awhile. The words and squirrel (and squirrel-ly images) are all from Papertrey Ink.

Did all the coloring with markers. Wasn’t super strict about it looking flawless. Just kinda ran with the coloring here.

Once again, I raided my box of scraps. The hearts (leftover from other projects) and patterned papers are from the box. Always nice to use them.

I also whipped out some sequins and twine. Always fun to add them to a card.

Alright. That’s it for today. Be back again later, gators. Hope you are off to a good week!

Valentine Challenge Bonus

Hi guys!

The Valentine challenge with Ashley is over but I’m sneaking in with one bonus card for it. It seemed like a pity to not share so here I am… again.

Keeping with my theme of trying to use stamps that haven’t been inked much, I whipped out a little stamp set from Papertrey Ink. Always liked the Heart-2-Heart #4 set. You just can’t go wrong with cute little telephone stamps… in my professional stamp loving opinion and all.

I die-cut the telephone 3 timesΒ  and stamped on top. Then I sponged a little ink onto my card base. I added the phones, a stamped sentiment and a few stamped hearts. I also added a few drops of black Nubo crystal drops.Β phonecard2-teri

I like how those drops always add just the right amount of something!

So that’s all I have for today. Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her all takes this week on the challenge. Such fun stuff.

And one more thing, if you haven’t done a challenge lately, I’m going to encourage you to do one. Find one online or draft a friend to do it with you. It’s such a great way to get those creative juices flowing… and to relax a little from life. Doing stuff for you is fun sometimes, ya know? See you again soon, friends.

Valentine Challenge

Hi again, friends!

Sneaking in one more time with one more take on the Valentine Challenge with my pal, Ashley.

This is today’s card.

A handmade card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Ta-da! As always, just had fun while making this card. Just. Plain. Had. Fun.

The whales and words are from Lawn Fawn’s Whale You Be Mine stamp set. I also used the coordinating dies.

whalebeminecard2-teri

I wanted the whales to look a little different so I colored them in, did the whole “Copic blending thing” if you know what I mean. Wink! Then I took a dark marker and added a few more swooshes (and brushes) of ink… because I could. I like the result. πŸ™‚

All the papers on my card are just random pieces of paper from my scrapbox.

The card seemed a little flat so I whipped out clear Glossy Accents and Nuvo Crystal Drops to add a bunch of dots to the card. As you can tell, I spared no expense when it came to adding dots.

Alrighty! That’s it for me today. Once again, be sure to hit Ashley’s blog to see her most recent take on the challenge.
