A Blog Named Hero Blog Hop (4-1)

white-frameHi all!

Thrilled to be joining my friends over at A Blog Named Hero for a celebratory blog hop in honor of the blog’s second birthday! Happy birthday, guys!

In honor of the big day, here’s a little something birthday’ish I made.

All the words from stamp sets from Hero Arts: OWH Dude; Everyday Sayings and Year Round Sentiments. The hexagons are dies from Simon Says Stamp!

So my goal for this card was to do things in grouping of 2 (2 sentiments, 2 different kinds of embellishments, 2 layers, 2 whatever). Yeah, I sorta failed miserably and didn’t limit myself to 2. But, hey, I had fun! That’s half the battle, right? 😉

eatdrink2_teri So that’s what I have for you.

Here’s a complete list of everyone hopping today:

(And psssst! Be sure to comment as you go today! The A Blog Named Hero crew tells me you could possibly win a prize package from Hero Arts or Simon Says Stamp! Woot!)

Dear Santa at A Blog Named Hero (11-29)

Hi all!

Joining my friends over at A Blog Named Hero one last time today for their Dear Santa festivities!

This week’s challenge was come up with a Christmas Quickie! 🙂

So meet today’s card.

abnh_MerryChristmas1_teri

This was a gosh… dang… lot of fun to make!

I die-cut the chevron design (from Kelly Purkey’s Outlined Chevron die from Simon Says Stamp!) from white, green and red cardstocks. I layered them together, letting the lower layers just barely peek out. If you look really close, you can see them all. I mounted them to kraft cardstock and the card and then used Glossy Accents and Christmas Red Stickles (from Ranger) to randomly fill in some of the spaces.

The sentiment (stamped on a strip of cardstock) is from the “I still dig it” Christmas Reindeer stamp set from Hero Arts. 🙂

Dear Santa at A Blog Named Hero (11-22)

Hi all!

I’m a little behind in posting today, but I’m here. 😉

I’m joining up my pals over at A Blog Named Hero again today for their Dear Santa festivities. This week’s challenge is to make a piece of home decor.

So I went with something simple that could be changed out after the holidays: A clipboard.

I was going for a somewhat retro look here, trying to somewhat mimic the look of Christmas ornaments by hanging the hexagons (cut with the Geometric Frame Cuts dies from Hero Arts). Each one is popped up off the backing sheet with some foam tape.

I finished the whole thing off with a Hero Arts’ sentiment (from their Snow Much Joy stamp set).

Gosh, that’s really all I have today. Wish I had more, but nada. Nothing. Not a thing. 😉

Thanks, as always, for stopping by. Be back again soon!

Dear Santa at A Blog Named Hero (11-15)

Hi everyone!

Joining my friends over at A Blog Named Hero again this week for a little Dear Santa fun.

This week’s challenge involves making a gift!

So I came up with some treat packages of sorts that would be good for neighbors, friends, office mates or even church buddys.

abnh_candytreats_teri

Pretty easy to make these bad boys.

I filled Glassine envelopes with holiday candy and then die-cut a topper for each with the Stitched Journaling Card die from Lawn Fawn. I love it so. Then I added some some stamping (with stamps from Hero Arts), die-cuts (cut with dies from Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp!) and sequins. When finished, I just clipped each one with a clip at the top of each envelope.

And, yep, there you have it! 😉 Like I said, “Easy!”

Be back again later this week, y’all!
Thanks for stopping by.
