Technique Tuesday Release Countdown Day 1


Hi, guys!

I’m joining the Technique Tuesday gang today in sharing a project made with some goods from the March release.

The new release debuts on March 1st on their website. You can see a few of the new products today on their blog. You’ll also find links to all the other design team members sharing projects today!

I used a couple new products for this guy.

I created the heart with the new Pieces of my Heart die. I cut three hearts from cardstock (red, pink and white). I mounted the pink and the red ones together, and then cut a puzzle piece from the white one and added it to the top. I finished it by adding a small heart covered with glitter glue on top. (The little heart was cut with TT’s Nested Hearts dies).Piece-Of-My-Heart-Card-Teri-A-Technique-Tuesday

The sentiment I used is from the Love You to Pieces stamp set, which  debuts on the 1st along with the Pieces of my Heart die.

It’s good for cards and scrapbook pages. And I’m sure you could come up with a bunch of other uses for it too! It’s packed with lots of great words.

Look for all of Technique Tuesday’s new products to debut on the 1st. You’ll find them in the New Products category on their website.

And, once again, be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog for links to the blogs of all the other TT Design Team members sharing projects today.

See you again tomorrow with another project made with some March release products!


Today’s card (2-24)

Hi gang!

I’m here again with another stamped card. I know. Shock. Shock. 😉

Please give it up for today’s card.

A stamped card by Teri //

Made this one a little bit back. Just getting around to sharing it.

I always like mixing and matching different stamp sets together, and this card was no exception. Created the little hamster scene by pairing the hamster and wheel from Lawn Fawn’s Wheelie Like You set  with the heart swirl from the Bugs & Kisses set.


Truly, this card is pretty straight forward. To finish the scene, I added a few dots with a bottle of Nuvo Crystal Drops. I also added a few to the sentiment strip.

Oh, and the papers? They are from Lawn Fawn too.

Not much more to say. Be back again later. Thanks, as always, for swinging by.

Today’s cards (2-22)

Hi guys!

I’m back… back again… with another card. Cha-cha! Wait. Make that 2 cards! Woo-to-the-hoo!

Stamped cactus cards by Teri //

These two cards are the result of some “nothing holding this girl back” inspiration. My goal? Just to have fun and go with it. And that I did.

I started by stamping the cactus plants (from the Stuck on You stamp set from Concord & 9th) on watercolor paper. (What ink did I use? Staz-On.)  And then I spritzed a little water on each panel and liberally applied a bunch of watercolors to them!

Once I let them dry, I went to town making the cards.

For the first card, I cut the panel into strips and adhered them a card made from white cardstock. I added a hello word (cut with a Papertrey Ink die) and a stamped “friend” word (stamped with a stamp from a set from Mama Elephant). There were a few white dots added too!


For the second card, I cut the panel into a rectangle with the help of a die from My Favorite Things. Once again, I whipped out the “hello” die and the “friend” stamp to do the sentiment.

To add to the “drama” (it makes me sound like one of those fancy card makers, right?) of the card, I added a few extra details with glitter glue and white crystal drops.

I think both cards turned out pretty nice!

Alright! That’s all I have. Be back again later, friends. Thanks for stopping by.

Today’s card (2-20)

Howdy friends!

Me again. 🙂 Meet today’s card-a-roo!

And the crowd goes wild. Just kidding!

Put this guy together a bit back by just hadn’t got around to sharing it.

I once again used mostly images from the Bugs & Kisses stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I also used the coordinating dies. I also used the cloud stencil from My Favorite Things.


I thought it would be fun for this one to create a little scene of sorts so that’s what I did. I first placed the little swirl on the card and then I added love bugs and hearts. I finished things off by adding a few dots (created with Nuvo Crystal Drops).

I also put a dot on the “i” in kissses. I think it just adds a little something fun to the card.

Ok. That’s it for now. Be back again later! Thanks for stopping by.

Today’s card (2-19)

Hi gang!

Back at it with another card to share.


Made this card a bit back for Technique Tuesday with their new Cheeky Chicken stamp set. Have you seen it? Some of the phrases are pretty dang funny. A few are bit edgy too.


Pretty simple card to make. I stamped the chicken over and over on cardstock. I stamped him one more time on white cardstock, fussy cut his little body out with my handy dandy scissors colored him in and plopped him on the blue paper. To give him a little extra pop, I used a light blue marker to add a little outline around his body. The idea was to draw the eye to him.

The sentiment circle came together like this:

  • Cut two circles. One smaller than other.
  • Stamp sentiment on smaller circle.
  • Plop smaller circle on larger circle. Call it good.
  • Have second thoughts.
  • Add a whole bunch of dots with your dependable friend, Nuvo Crystal Dots.
  • Raise your hands in victory!

Alright! That’s what I got, friends.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by! Oh, and please join me in celebrating the new 2018 Technique Tuesday Design Team! You’ll get to see this awesome crew every month as part of the Technique Tuesday’s brand new New Release Countdown, which will happen on the last 2 days of every month. There’s also three lovely ladies who serving as ambassadors (Tobi Crawford, Birgit Edblom and Jenn Brown) to Technique Tuesday and will be sharing projects on their blogs during the year.

Today’s card (2-18)

Hi everyone!

Another day. Another card to share.

A stamped card by Teri //

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. 😉


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 //

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. 🙂

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!
