Toaster, Toast and Cute Barn Animals

Hi, friends!

Back with another card to share. Today’s card is a bit unusual but it was sure fun to put together.

There was a food-inspired card challenge over with Lawn Fawnatics recently. In ended a few weeks ago, but I still wanted to give it a go and make something with my Lawn Fawn food-themed stamp sets so I did. This is what I came up with.

It’s kind of a breakfast scene of sorts. I started out with the toast, butter and toaster from the Let’s Toast set.

Then I felt like it just needed some cute critters added to it. And I had a few critters left over from last time I played with the Hay There set so I pulled them out and added them to the scene.

It’s totally a goofy card but it’s kind of fun … and kinda made me giggle as I made it. Hope it does for you too!

The sentiment was actually created by pairing together words from both stamp sets. I thought it was pretty neat that they had words that worked so well together. That doesn’t always happen with stamps.

For the coloring everything on this card, I used markers. I borrowed a little inspiration too from Kathy Racoosin and pulled my pencils to do a little shading to the toast and toaster. I feel like it really made a difference. Thanks for the inspiration to play and try things, Kathy!

Alright! That’s it for me. I’ll be back again later with another card.

By the way, I’ve got a post over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog that you might want to check out. It’s a super easy tutorial on how to make tiny skinny cards. They are a great way to use up your patterned paper scraps, plus they are a ton of fun to make.

I hope you’ll check it out!

See you again soon, friends!

Farm Animal Cards

Hi, friends!

It’s hard to believe it but I’m back with a couple more cards. Today’s cards include a bunch of farm animals from Lawn Fawn’s Hay There stamp set.

So, with that, meet Card No. 1.

I picked up the stamp set not long after it came out, but only recently added the dies to my crafty arsenal. This kinda pushed me to pull out the stamp set and play some more with it.

All the animals (and barn) are form the set. I created the little scenic background by stenciling a cloud background on cardstock and then adding a strip of green cardstock at the bottom. It would have been easy to just create a card with that as the background, but I decided to get all fancy-like and die-cut the scalloped circle from it. It provided a cute little background for the card, and it left me a leftover piece you’ll see me use in a minute.

So meet Card No. 2.

Remember how that leftover background piece from the first card? Yeppers. You’ll see it right here. I covered up some of the circle by adhering the animals onto it.

I created the sentiment by pairing together some stamped words from the Hay There set with a “friend” die-cut word from Paper Smooches. (Speaking of which, it’s a great time to grab some Paper Smooches stamps and dies… and stencils… as they are retiring.)

Anyway, I think both cards turned out kinda fun. And it was cool to use the background to make 2 cards. Totally two-for-one!

I hope you enjoyed checking out these cards. I’ll be back again later with a few more cards to share with you. Thank you, as always, for stopping by!

Sealiously Awesome Card

Hi, friends!

I guess I’m on a bit of a seal kick as I’ve got another seal card to share with you today. Meet today’s card.

I once again used one of the seals from the Sealiously Sweet stamp set from Sunny Studio. I colored this guy in with markers and then added a layer of clear glaze to the float and glasses. I think it just adds a little something.

I created the plaid panel with cardstock and the Buffalo Plaid embossing folder (also from Sunny Studio). I kinda just wanted to give a hint of water so I took an cosmetic sponge (old school, I know) sponged some blue ink onto the panel. It’s subtle but it does the trick!

The sentiment is also from the Sealiously Sweet stamp set. Let’s be frank. It’s a hot mess underneath. I used a combination of adhesives (Double-Sided Tape and Permanent Dots) to anchor the seal and sentiment together and then add the thread. For kicks, I present you with Exhibit A.

To anchor it on the panel, I had some leftover pieces of 3D Foam Creative Sheets on my desk from other projects I’ve been working on. I cut up a piece and slapped it on the back of the sentiment and seal. I present to you Exhibit B.

Yep. They aren’t going anywhere. Wink.

Oh, by the way, those tiny strips of cardstock. Little trick. I just cut strips of cardstock and then used my markers to try to match the colors I used on the seal’s inflatable.

That’s it for today. I’ll be back later! See you again soon, friends. Thank you for visiting my blog!

Sweet Seals Card

Hi, friends!

Here again with another card to share! Today’s card features two cute little seals.

I stamped these seals (from the Sealiously Sweet stamp set from Sunny Studio) at my last craft night with a few of my local friends, which was before the Pandemic really took hold in the US and things closed up. Gosh, that was like 3 months ago. Anyway, I pulled them out the other day, thinking, “Man, I miss crafting with the gang,” and decided to make something with them.

Honestly, it was just therapeutic coloring them in. I fussy cut them with my scissors. There was a time in my crafty life when I fussy cut ALL THE TIME. And now? Not so much! I forgot how it can be fun but can also take a lot of time.

I created the beach and water strips from cardstock with an old border die from My Favorite Things. I added a little ink to the water to make the seals stand out more.

The sentiment strip was created by stamping some words from the Critter Campouts set on it. Then I anchored it with Crafty Foam Tape from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. (Have you seen their big rolls? They just introduced them this year. I’ve been a fan for a long time of their foam tape and was thrilled to get a bigger roll to use for my crafting projects!)

Side note! You might be wondering about the stamped hearts! Those are from the Fabulous Flamingos set, also from Sunny Studio. I have quite a few a few Sunny Studio sets with hearts in them. Any would have worked. I just had this set on my desk.

Alright! That’s it for now. I’ll be back again soon! Thank you for stopping by!

Just Saying Hello Card

Hi, guys!

Back again with another card to share. I was inspired to play by the latest Lawn Fawnatics Challenge, which is No. 78 and to create a scene.

Scenes are my jam, and creating a new one felt like a good reason to pull out some of my Lawn Fawn products. So, with that, meet today’s card.

I went way back for this one, pulling out my much loved Critters in the Forest stamp set to stamp the animals and tree. Gosh, how long have I had this stamp set? Since it came out. Hehe! So many stamps have come and gone from my stash since that time, but this one has stuck around. It was nice to ink it up again and play with it.

The hearts and words are from Lawn Fawn’s Simply Sentiments stamp set. It’s just a good all-around, practical set. I use it a lot.

Created the background with Lawn Fawn’s Cloudy stencil. Cut the circle out of it with one of the dies from the Outside In Stitched Scalloped Circles dies. I just picked these dies up recently, and I’m kinda sad I waited so long. They are sure fun.

Anyway, that’s all I have for now. I’ll be back again later, gators! Thank you, as always, for stopping by. It sure is a treat when you do! See you soon with another card!

PS. Thanks again to the Lawn Fawnatics crew for the fun challenge! It was great to play!

A Cute Little Typewriter Card

Hi, friends!

Happy weekend’ing to you! I’m back with another card to share with you.

Today’s little typewriter card was inspired by Jennifer and Kristina’s Woven Windows lesson during Spring Card Camp 2 on Online Card Classes. I keep a little box of scraps by my desk and was like, “Hey, man. I’m going to give that a try.”

So I created the little window on this card with paper strips from that little box. Once I completed the window, I mounted vellum behind it.

I really liked the window and could have just gone with it on the card alone. But I’d stamped the typewriter and mouse (from Lawn Fawn’s Just My Type set) a couple days ago and really, really, really wanted to use them on a card… and I did. 😉 (By the way, the second sentiment on the card is from a Cathy Zielske Simon Says Stamp! set.)

To make the window pop, I did anchor the panel on a lot (and I mean a lot) of Crafty Foam Tape. The tape gives it some nice pop, but not too much. This card can still be mailed and all.

Anyway, I think this card turned out pretty fun. Hopefully, the friend who gets it, enjoys it!

Thanks, as always, for stopping by! I appreciate your kind words! See you again soon!

2020 Spring & Summer Coffee Loving Cardmakers Hop | Cards No. 3 + 4

Hi, friends!

Got a couple more coffee-themed cards to share. Just squeezing them, right before the end of the latest Coffee Loving Cardmakers Hop!

Meet Card #1!

On a bit of a scene kick. Paired together some of Yetis (and party stuff) from Lawn Fawn’s Yeti or Not stamp set with coffee cups and words from a couple older sets from My Favorite Things.

It just kinda made me giggle when I put them all together and made this card. Excited to share it with a coffee-loving friend.

And meet Card No. 2.

I know, shock shock! Another scene. This one uses all stamps from My Favorite Things. I’ve used this turtle a few times but this is the first time I’ve ever paired her with coffee cups.

I think it turned out kinda fun! Again, looking forward to sending this to one of my friends.

Alrighty! That’s it for me. I’ll be back again later, gators. Thanks for swinging! And don’t forget to check out all the link ups for the Hop. So many fun cards have been shared!

2020 Spring & Summer Coffee Loving Cardmakers Hop | Card No. 2

Hi, guys!

I’m back with another card inspired by the latest Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop.

So many great ideas have been shared so far. Today’s card is just an idea I got in my head and decided to run with it. So let’s get to it. Meet today’s card.

Flying robots with coffee cups! It could happen… wink, wink! 🙂 I found myself giggling as I made this card. I initially planned to make a cute little love scene with a cup of coffee and the two robots and then my mind kinda just took off. (Don’t ask. Just don’t ask.) And my scene evolved into flying robots.

The sentiment, which is from an old My Favorite Things set, just seemed fitting. The swirly doohickey majicky is from MFT Stamps, to, as is the coffee cup.

The robots and hearts are from Lawn Fawn’s Charge Me Up set. Not sure why but robots stamps almost always end up in my crafty arsenal. I always enjoy making cards with them.

I created the background with Lawn Fawn’s Cloudy stencil. Oh and I wanted to mention this. I use a lot of small embellishments. Liquid glue is pretty trendy these days for adhering them, but if you aren’t a liquid glue fan when it comes to embellishment, I highly recommend checking out the Micro Adhesive Dots from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. They are really small and work well for sequins.

Alrighty! That’s it! Be sure to check out the hop’s link up. So many great projects! See you again soon! 🙂

2020 Spring & Summer Coffee Loving Cardmakers Hop | Card No. 1

Hi, guys!

Back today with a card inspired by the latest Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop. I so look forward the hop. Always such a great reason to dig out the coffee (and tea) stamps and dies and play!

So today’s card is, of course, coffee-themed so, with that, meet today’s card.

I pulled out a few old stamps and dies from My Favorite Things to put this guy together.

The colorful background was created by blending a few different colors of ink on cardstock. Then I added the lattice-y die-cut to it. Sit back for a minute. Let me confess something to you. I had this panel sitting around for awhile, thinking for awhile about using it on another card.

Add the stamped steam vent was somewhat an afterthought. I stamped it and kinda just mentally said, “Please work, please work, please work.” And it surprisingly did. I think it turned out OK.

Anyway, that’s what I’ve got! Be sure to check out the links for all the hoppers on this post here. New stuff is shared throughout the hop so keep checking back! And if you’ve got coffee or tea stamps or dies, share something too!

A Pink Card!

Hi, friends!

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve been here with a card, but I’m back! I’ve got a card to share with you today.

A handmade stamped card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

Ta-da!

I created this card this last weekend as the result of a virtual crop with some of my card making friends. Kelly tossed out a challenge to make a card with pink. I decided to give it a go as I don’t often make pink cards and am pretty challenged by the color! It proved to be a good challenge as I spent a lot of time fussing about this one. (Hehe!)

The cups and stamped words are from a couple older stamp sets from My Favorite Things. The large die-cut word was cut with an older die from Lawn Fawn. I cut it four times and the stacked the words up to make one. Then I used my Copic markers to add the gray tones to it.

The patterned papers are just scraps from my box of scraps that I pulled together. I told myself not to worry if they were 100 percent perfect together. I’d be OK, no matter what. (Wink!)

Anyway, that’s what I have got! I’ll be back again this weekend with another card or two to share with you! Thank you, as always, for stopping by. It’s always a treat when you do.
