Seen Elsewhere Today

Hi, guys!

I’m up on the blog for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L today, sharing a set of friendship cards.

TeriAnderson-3DSmileFriendCardSet-5

These cards were extra fun to make as they use lots of 3D Foam Products. They have lot of depth and dimension.

Get the scoop on how I did it in the post over there. You’ll also find lots of more pictures.

Be back again later, gators.

Thinking of You Card Challenge: Day 2

Hi, guys!

Back again with another take on the Thinking of You Card Challenge with Ashley.

Today’s card features some images from the Flopsy Forest Friends stamp set from Ink Blot Shop. It’s a new one. (It’s available over on Simon Says Stamp! too.)

The words are from the Hello Lovely stamp set, also from Ink Blot Shop.

I once again used my awesome cheap markers I found on Amazon to do the coloring.  I also did a little creative masking to merge the mouse and stump together, so to speak.

The papers are all from my box of scraps. Always love mixing and matching patterned papers together and seeing what I come up with.

To add a little extra detail to the scene, I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in orange, pink and black. (The black is on the fox’s nose. It’s kinda hidden, but trust me, it’s there.)

That’s what I got. Once again, don’t forget to check out Ashley’s blog to see her latest take on the challenge. She’s got the cutest card today… in my “professional” card loving opinion and all. (Wink!)

Thinking of You Card Challenge: Day 1

Hi, guys!

Back again with another challenge card. This time Ashley and I are challenging each other to make Thinking of You cards.

The idea behind this challenge? We wanted to do something in the spirit of Happy Mail and make cards to send to our friends and loved ones. (By the way, my friends, Jennifer McGuire and Kimberly Crawford, both do a FANTASTIC job of encouraging card makers all the time to send out their stamped cards! You should check them out. Jennifer’s motto is “Share Handmade Kindness” and encourages others all the time, while Kimberly encourages folks to “Mail It Monday” and get those cards out. Not to mention, both are always sharing their creativity!)

Anyway, back to the card.

I created this sweet little scene with some stamps from Ink Blot Shop’s Billy Silly Goats stamp set. Such a fun set with so many adorable goats. (It’s available through Ink Blot Shop, as well as Simon Says Stamp!)

I created the background by sponging some green and yellow ink on cardstock. Then I stamped the little scene. I also sponged a little black ink below the goats to ground them, so to speak. (Oh yeah, and I added some color to the fence, hearts and flowers with markers.)

I stamped the goats a second time on another piece of paper, colored them in with markers and fussy cut them out with my scissors. I used 3D Foam Squares to adhere them to my card so they’d pop up… and really stand out.

I completed the card by adding some extra details with liquid dots, a strip of patterned paper and a stamped sentiment. I think it turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself.

Alright! Be sure to swing by Ashley’s first take on the challenge. It’s amazing.

See you again soon. Thank you, as always, for stopping by!

Today’s card (5-21)

Hi, gang!

Here again with a card to share with you. Because… that’s what I do.

Take it away, Today’s Card.

And the crowd goes wild! Wink!

Created this guy with the Billy Silly Goats stamp set that was just released by Ink Blot Shop. (It’s also available right here over at Simon Says Stamp!) My friend, Tifany, (the sweet soul behind Ink Blot Shop) let me play with the stamps a little early and this little card is the result.

There’s all kinds of silly goat-y goodness in the stamp set. All kinds of cute little boy and girl goats.

This little one cracked me up so, you know, had to make a card.

I stamped the little guy on cardstock. I used some (I swear to you, people, I could not make this up if I tried) cheap-o markers (and freaking awesome markers) I picked up on Amazon for a whopping $20 to do the coloring and then did a little fussy cutting. I sponged a little blue ink onto a card and stamped the little fella again. I adhered the fussy cut goat on top (with 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, which are my go-to dimensional adhesive).

And then I stamped a couple more cans, some hearts and those words. I did a little more coloring and added some white dots around the image. I also added some patterned paper and some staples (for good measure). 😉

Anyway, in the end, it turned out pretty good, if I do I say so myself.

Alright! That’s what I go. Be back again soon, friends.

I’m excited to share with you a card I created for the hop. I wanted to make a birthday card because… birthday cards are something I’m always needing.

The Mini Misti tool was perfect for making this card because I wanted to give Sammy the Squirrel a birthday hat. I stamped the hat (from the Sassy Birthday 2.0 set) once on a sticky note, fussy cut it out with scissors. I stamped the hat a second time on a piece of cardstock.

A little tip for all you, Misti lovers, out there. I use a Mini Misti most of the time. (In fact, I actually take this positioner with me when I hit the road and travel to craft with friends. It’s the perfect size!) I cut several pieces of cardstock to fit in the Mini Misti ahead to fit inside it. That way I can grab and go on a stamping binge without any cares or worries. 😉

Anyway, back to the card. This is where the Mini Misti came in as super helpful. I covered up the cardstock stamped hat with the mask. And then I stamped Sammy over it.

I removed the mask and ended up with Sammy in a birthday hat!

Cute, right?

Then I went to town putting together the rest of the card. I completed the scene with the cupcake (also from Sassy Birthday 2.0) and the worm (also from the Sammy the Squirrel set).

I colored the images in with markers. Cut them out with a circle die. Added some dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops. Add a pompom to the hat (inspired by Jenn Brown, one of TT’s ambassadors, who does that quite often).

Then I completed the card with some patterned paper and a stamped sentiment. And yep. That’s it.

Alright! That’s all I have for you! Happy hopping! (Don’t forget, Ilina is your next stop! Take it away, Ilina! I promise that you are going to LOVE what she is sharing. She has such talent)

Oh, and be sure to comment as you hop. There are some prizes up for grabs: a $50 shopping spree at www.mysweetpetunia.com and a $50 shopping spree at TechniqueTuesday.com. Leave your comments on all the hop stops no later than Monday, May 28th, at 11:59 PM Central time and winners will be announced on Tuesday May 29th, on the Technique Tuesday and My Sweet Petunia blogs.
