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.

A handmade birthday card for Technique Tuesday || Terisplace.wordpress.com

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)

Today’s card (5-10)

Hi, guys!

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

Just a “for fun” card!

Created this goofy little scene with the new Let’s Flamingle stamps and dies from My Favorite Things. They just came out. (Thank you, sweet friend, who shared them with me.)

Flamingos have a special place in my heart. Many plastic flamingos have graced my yard over the years. They humor me greatly. 😉 Flamingoparty2card-teri

I thought it would be fun to create a goofy scene with them so I die-cut, stamped and colored several drink glasses for my scene. I even added some “salt” to them with glitter glue.

I initially had planned to have all the glasses surround one of the ‘mingos, but I made a last minute decision that one should serve as a hat too. Because… it made me chuckle. Hopefully it does for you too!

By the way, you might be wondering about the background behind the flamingos. I created that sky with the help of MFT’s Cloud stencil. It’s such a fantastic tool for making scene cards. I’d totally recommend getting one to anyone who likes to make stamped scenes.

Anyway, that is all I have for you. Thanks for taking the time to check out my card today.

Today’s card (5-7)

Hi, guys!

Here again with a card to share.

A stamped card by Teri for Paper Smooches || Terisplace.wordpress.com

Made this one a bit ago for Paper Smooches.

I’m a fan of mixing and matching stamps from way back so that’s what I did here. I mixed and matched together a couple stamps from a couple different stamp sets: Huge Hugs and Sugar Rush (and the coordinating dies for both sets).

I think they worked well together to make a cute little scene.

And if you have been following the story of Fiona the Hippo at the Cincinnatti Zoo, this card might be a little bit inspired by Fiona. I mean, she’s just so cute… and she’s a hippo.  (Wink.)

All the patterned papers in the background are once again from my box of scraps. I talk about that box a lot here on my blog-a-roo. Let me tell you a secret: It’s just a little shoebox sized box that I keep near my desk. Over the years, my collection of paper scraps has been awfully big at times. It was too much. So I purged all those tiny pieces of papers awhile back and got a shoebox and told myself that was it. If the scraps of paper don’t fit in it, they gotta go. The smaller size, at least, has helped keep things manageable.

Alright! That’s it for now. Be back later, friends.

Today’s card… no, layout (5-4)

Hi guys!

Sharing a layout, not a card, I created with Sassy Camera, a new stamp set I designed for Technique Tuesday that comes out today in honor of National Scrapbook Day.

Super-Fun-Times-Scrapbook-Page-Teri-A-Technique-Tuesday

First, before I talk about the layout, let me give A HUGE thank you to Heather Hoffman, who kindly provided the picture I used on this layout. It’s such a fun picture that was taken while she and her friends were at Creativation this year.  (Thank you, guys.)

So about the layout. I stamped all the phrases, cameras and photo frames with the stamp set. Oh, and the stars too! I also used the coordinating dies, which went on sale today too.

Super-Fun-Times-Scrapbook-Page-Close-Teri-A-Technique-Tuesday

The layout’s background was created by just mixing together a bunch of patterned paper scraps with cardstock, plus some washi tape.  You’ll see that washi tape in the top corner of the picture. There were also a few dots added to the layout with Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Oh and that text on the picture? I went old school, pulling out letters from my stash of letter stickers and label tape.

If you think you might like to own the Sassy Camera stamp set, it’s a good weekend to snatch it up. You can get it for free through Sunday when you make a $30 or more purchase through TT’s website. This graphic has the scoop on how to get the set for free.
