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.

A Fun Idea for Planners and Listers

Hi, friends!

Are you a planner? I shared an easy tutorial the other day on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog, showing how to make a dry erase shopping list!

TeriAnderson-DryEraseToDoListsforPlanners-1

These lists are great because you can tuck them in your planner to jot down all the things you need. Then you can pull the list out and tuck it your purse when it comes time to go grocery shopping (or really any kind of shopping).

Stop by the blog over here for the how-to.

And thanks, as always, for stopping by.

A handmade card by Teri, creating with Paper Smooches products

Created this card with the new Rainbow Sherbet dies. I cut a line in the typewriter and then cut a piece of cardstock to fit in it so it would like the sentiment really was typed.

The words are from a couple different stamp sets:  Noteworthy and Delightful Greetings. They were part of larger sentiments so I did a little masking by covering up the unneeded words with washi tape while I inked the stamps.

The papers on the card are also from Paper Smooches. They are from the previously released Rainbow Sherbet paper pack. I really like the color combo.

Alright. That’s it for me. I’ll be back later, friends. Thanks for hopping today and stopping by my blog-a-roo!
