Technique Tuesday Sneak Peek No. 2

Hi, guys!

I’m back with a couple more cards to share that features some new products for November for Technique Tuesday. Their new release of stamps and cutting dies goes live right here tomorrow.

Meet card no. 1.

This guy features the new Perfect Poinsettia stamp set and matching dies.

redpoinsettiaseasonsgreetingscard-teri

I think this stamp set really is pretty. I just love the big Poinsettia in it. It’s so wide open and so easy to color with markers. I colored the one of my card with markers and then added a little extra shading with pencils. Once I did all the coloring, I added a hit of glitter to the center of the flower. It’s subtle, but it is there.

This second card features the new Hello Winter stamp set. What a fun stamp set it is.

warmerwinterclothescard-teri

It features a bunch of Winter-themed images, as well as some fun phrases. The stamp set was designed with scrapbookers in mind, but it is a set that is equally card friendly. I felt like everything in it could easily be used to make cards and scrapbook pages.

Alright, kids. That is what I have for you today. Be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog for a look at all the new products, plus you’ll find links to all the Design Team members, who are sharing projects on their blog today as well. Woohoo for cool new projects… and stamps and dies too. 😉

Technique Tuesday Sneak Peek No. 1

Hi, guys!

Technique Tuesday is gearing up for their November 1st release of stamps and dies, and the design team is joining the fun today by sharing some cards they’ve made with the new goods.

I’ve got a couple cards to show you today.

This first card features the new Christmas Cocoa stamp set.

PeppermintChristmasCocoaCard-teri

To give the cocoa cups a little sparkle, I added a light dusting chunky glitter. I also “grounded” the cups by sponging a little black ink below them. It’s an easy thing to, and it adds so much.

PeppermintChristmasCocoaCardClose-teri

Card number 2 also features the Christmas Cocoa stamp set.

PeppermintMugCard-teri

To create this card, I stamped the cocoa cup with a light kraft ink onto the panel several times. I also stamped the little hearts. Then I stamped the cocoa cup on white cardstock, colored it in with markers and fussy cut it out with my scissors. (There are no matching dies for this stamp set, but the images are easy to cut with your scissors.) I completed the cocoa cup by adding a sprinkling of glitter to it as well. It’s all in the whip. 😉

I finished the card by adding the sentiment (which could make this image pass for a peppermint mocha too) and a few sequins.

Alright! That’s all I have for you today. Be sure to visit the Technique Tuesday blog for a full look at this stamp set and some other products they are releasing on the 1st. All the new products will be available on Nov. 1st on their website.

You’ll also want to check out the blogs of my Design Team pals, who are sharing projects they’ve created with the new goods. You’ll find links to all their blogs on the Technique Tuesday blog.

 

 

 

Colored Pencils for the Card Making Win

Hi, friends!

Surprise, surprise! I’m back again with another stamped card to share with you.

Do you ever buy a stamp set that you are so excited about, bring it home and then … quietly… not do anything with it for a long, long, long time? So begins the tale of how today’s card came to be.

Meet today’s card.

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

I picked up the Winter Woodland stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh quite a long time ago. I just loved cute critters in it. I didn’t do much with it and instead kept in my bin of stamps to use soon. Days became days and days, and days and days became… forever.. with the stamp set sitting and waiting to see some inky action.

Well, I took one look at the stamp set the other day and was like, “I need to use you, man. You are so cute!” And so I challenged myself to get off my card making hiney and make a card with this adorable set. And so I did.

All the images on this card are from the set. The words too.

I went out my regular zone and used colored pencils to color the images in rather than markers. If you look close, you’ll see I added a little sparkle as well to the holly leaves (with a Wink of Stella pen) and the berries (with glitter glue). I also added some with dots with white Nuvo Crystal Drops.

WarmWishesBirdsCard2-teri

That little rectangle panel was cut with a die from My Favorite Things.

Anyway, I think the card turned out pretty cute! I am totally challenging myself to make another card soon with the stamp set. It’s just so cute and happy… and fun. I sure like it.

I’ll be back again soon, friends. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.

 

Technique Tuesday Release Day

(Looking for my Sunny Studio Stamps Blog Hop post? Go here!)

Hi, guys!

The October release from Technique Tuesday is live, and I’m here to share a few more projects I created with the new goods. New-Blog-Graphics-Reveal-Day

Meet Card No. 1.

Merry-And-Bright-Christmas-Lights-Card-Teri-A-Technique-Tuesday

This one uses the new Christmas Lights Border die. The die was inspired by the lights in my String of Lights stamp set and is such that you can use the words in the stamp set with it.

This card took a little extra effort to put it together. That’s because I cut the die twice. Once was for the panel you see on the card. The second time was to make a stencil from cardstock that I used to add color to the lights, as well as the light’s cord.

It took awhile to put it together, but i think the results were totally worth it.

And meet Card No. 2.

Green-Blue-Bulbs-Card-Teri-A-Technique-TuesdayMerry-And-Bright-Christmas-Lights-Card-Close-Teri-A-Technique-Tuesday

This one uses the String of Lights stamp set. It’s another non-traditional color scheme.

I had so much fun playing with this stamp set as the bulbs are just really easy to color in with markers.

Green-Blue-Bulbs-Card-Close-Teri-A-Technique-Tuesday

To give the cord a bit of pop, I added a few dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops. I just dig that stuff.

Alright! That’s all I have for you today. Don’t forget to stop by the Technique Tuesday blog to see who else from the design team is sharing projects today.

Sunny Studio Stamps 3rd Birthday Blog Hop

Birthday Blog Hop Logo

Hi, guys!

I’m so happy to be celebrating the 3rd birthday of Sunny Studio Stamps today with a blog hop with some of the most awesome stampers around.

You should have arrived here from the blog of Juliana Michaels! I’m Teri, and this is the last stop on the hop. Just getting started? You’ll want to head to the blog of Sunny Studio after this stop for the complete list.

So I have to say that it’s super cool to see Sunny Studio Stamps turn 3. I’ll tell you a secret: Mendi, the brains behind it, is one of my real life crafty friends. Yes, we really do craft together sometimes. 🙂 If there was ever a company that was a reflection of who someone is, this is what Sunny Studio Stamps is. It is truly Mendi. Happy, friendly and top-notch. And I can also tell you, Mendi works really, really hard at making it all come together. There’s a lot you don’t see. She does it all with a smile and a lot (and I mean A LOT) of heart. I’m proud of you, Mendi, and can’t wait to see what happens next with Sunny Studio Stamps!

Anyway, let’s get back to the hop.

I’ve got three… (yep, 3) cards to share with you today. Each of these cards feature some new products that have just debuted at Sunny Studio Stamps. (By the way, deal alert! Use coupon code “CELEBRATE” to get 15% off any retail orders placed through the Sunny Studio Stamps website through October 1st.)

Birthday Blog Hop Graphic

So meet card #1.

ChristmasSeasonCocoaCard-teri

I couldn’t resist making a cute little scene with the new Warm & Cozy dies. This little dies  are so sweet with a cocoa cup, hat and even mittens! And do you see that pattern on the mitten and hat? Did it myself (oh yeah!) with the help of Sunny Studio’s new Cable Knit embossing folder.

A Christmas card by Teri | terisplace,wordpress.com

I cut a piece of cardstock and embossed it first and then cut the hat and mitten from it. I’m not sure there’s any magical way you are supposed to do it, but that’s just what I do when embossing and die-cutting stuff.

I was on a roll so with embossing and die-cutting and came up with card no. 2.

WarmThoughtsRainbowMittensCard-teri

I used the same supplies as the last card, just changed things up by going with a rainbow color scheme instead. There’s just something about rainbows, you know. I love them.

WarmThoughtsRainbowMittensCard2-teri

And meet card #3.

HappyFoxesChristmasCard1-teri

I wanted a mostly clean and graphic card, but I didn’t want it to be boring so I created the white background with the embossing folder. It’s hard to tell but I did stitch a frame around the panel because … well… I just felt like it for this card. How is that for reasoning? (Wink!)HappyFoxesChristmasCard2-teri

The adorable foxes were stamped and die-cut with the Foxy Christmas stamps and coordinating dies. The words on this card (as well as the other two) are from the stamp set.

Alrighty! That’s all I have for you. Be sure to leave a comment on my post for a chance to win a $25 gift code for Sunny Studio Stamps. Comments will be taken until Monday, 11:59 PDT.
