Hi again!

It’s me, and guess what? Yep. Got another 14 (cards) in 14 (days) challenge card to share with you.

14 in 14 Love Cards for Valentine's Day Challenge // terisplace.wordpress.com

This is today’s love-themed card.

This Much Love card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Just a simple one that’s a bit on the shabby side. Pulled together a bunch of different patterned paper scraps, as well as some really old chipboard hearts, tags and flowers (and corners) from Crate Paper. Remember the card I shared a couple days ago with chipboard from Crate Paper? These are from the same really, really, really old sheet of chipboard stickers. 😉 I’m kind of the mindset to “leave no cute thing behind.”

Once again, I whipped out the Love You So by Julie Ebersole stamp set from Ellen Hutson to stamp set to stamp my sentiment. Just dig that set… a lot.

That does it for today.

Be sure to stop by Ashley’s blog. I’m sure she’s got some awesome based on our challenge to share with you. See you again tomorrow.

Hi all!

Another day. Another take on the 14 in 14 challenge with Ashley.

Meet today’s love-themed card.

Favorite Love Card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com


Just had some fun today, whipping out some new to me (but totally hidden in my stash for a really, really, really long time) chipboard stickers from Crate Paper. Yep. The frame, the lips, the heart and the mustache are from that really, really, really old piece of chipboard.

The papers are from Pebbles and Crate Paper. And the words? They are from the Love You So by Julie Ebersole stamp set from Ellen Hutson. So many good phrases in that one.

Favorite Love Card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

A little trick for you. I stamped the words before I added the chipboard stuff, although I figured out where I wanted it all first. Since I put some foam adhesive under the lips and mustache to elevate them, I was worried about getting ink on my block and accidentally touching them… so stamp first and adhere later.

So that’s what I have for you today. Be sure to stop by Ashley’s blog to see her take today on the challenge.

Hi all!

14 in 14 Love Cards for Valentine's Day Challenge // terisplace.wordpress.com

Back again with one more 14 in 14 card for the love card challenge card with Ashley. (Whew! Say that 10 times fast!)

Typewriter Love card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Just a bit of a patterned paper (from Doodlebug and Crate Paper) and some random bits (washi tape, sequin, doily and staples) on this one. If you look really close, you’ll see that I did a little stamping too. Where? Well, it’s on the paper in the typewriter. Just stamped that “Feb 14” phrase with a roller stamp from the office supply store.

I’ve always loved using a date stamp in my scrapbook so it was extra fun to find a way to use it on a card.

Anxious to see Ashley’s take on the challenge today. Be sure to swing by her blog.

Be back again tomorrow.

Hello again!

Back again with another 14 in 14 love card!

14 in 14 Love Cards for Valentine's Day Challenge // terisplace.wordpress.com

Today’s card is a simple and mostly flat one. Sometimes, I get caught up in the fun of being all clunky junky and adding lots of embellishments. Today is not one of those days.

Salt and Pepper Valentine's Card by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Played it quick and straight here. I was super digging the salt and pepper shakers (cut from a piece of paper from Doodlebug) and just really built the card around them. Added a few pieces of patterned paper next to and above. Slapped them onto cardstock and then added some more patterned paper (from Crate Paper).

Finished the whole thing off with an itty bitty bow tied from twine. What? You wanted something totally flat? I tried. 😉

Can’t wait to see Ashley’s take on today’s challenge. Be sure to visit her.

I’ll be back again tomorrow.

Today’s card

Hi all!

Another card to share today.

Another card made just for the fun of having fun.

Fancy Thanks by Teri

Created this guy mostly with products from the Craft Market collection from Crate Paper. I’m a fan of Crate Paper so several pieces of the collection had to be mine when the collection surfaced at the local craft store. (Insert evil laugh here. Bahahahahahah!) Love it so much.

Fancy Thanks by Teri

The thanks word was cut with a die from Studio Calico. It is a pretty thin die so I used an old trick from the Scrapbook Dark Ages to adhere it to my card. What’s that, you ask? Well, it’s this: Squeeze glob of glue on scratch paper. Use toothpick to pick up small dabs of glue to dab gently on die-cut. 😉 Works great for thin dies.

So that’s what I have for you today. I’ll be back again later, gators.

January Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday

Yep! It’s Studio AE Blog Hop time again! I’m so excited to be hopping with the Studio AE crew again. I always look forward to the 10th.

This month’s stamp set (and hop guest of honor, so to speak) is the All My Heart by Ali Edwards stamp set.


Pretty fun!

I decided to make a card with it for today’s hop. So here you go! 😉


I stamped a bunch of the stamps with red ink on cardstock, cut them out and then just sorta used them as embellishments.

I had a lot of fun just mixing and matching them with other bits and pieces. Outside of the sequins, gems, doily and clip, most everything else (but the stamps) is from Crate Paper.


Be sure to check out the blogs of all the blog hoppers today:

Comment as you because Technique Tuesday is going to give one lucky blog hopper a $25 e-Gift Card to their Web site. The winner will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog on the 15th.

12 in 12: Day 12 (12-14)

And bam!

The finale of the 12 in 12 Christmas Card Challenge is here.

And bam again! Here is the card that I like to call, No. 12.


Just had “no holds barred” fun here and did some random clustering with gems, word tiles and circles  (from Me & My Big Ideas and Crate Paper).


Really love the random look of all those things together. I guess it’s that organized freestyle collage look again. 😉

The papers are from Pebbles, Echo Park Paper, Simple Stories and Becky Higgins.

And, dang, that’s all I have for you.

So like that, 12 in 12 is done for this year.

Be sure to check out Ashley’s final post. I’m sure it will be rad.

Caring Hearts Blog Hop

Caring Heart Badge

Hi all!

Happy to be showing some support for a good cause again and joining some of my favorite friends for the annual Caring Hearts Card Drive Blog Hop!

If you have been hopping along, you should have arrived from the blog of: Latisha Yoast. If you have just stumbled on this post, welcome to the hop!

I think the Caring Hearts card drive is a great chance for us card makers to bring a little cheer to someone who needs it by making cards and sending them in so they can be passed onto folks in nursing homes. You can find out more about it on Vera’s blog.

Here’s a card I made to send in this year.


Most everything on this card is from Crate Paper’s Bundled Up collection, other than the star (which is from Freckled Fawn) and the sequins (which are from Lawn Fawn). The words are from Paper Smooches.


Hopefully, it will make someone smile this year!

Alright so it’s time for me to send you off.  Next stop on the hop is the blog of the talented folks from Fresh Squeezed Stamps. (Hi, guys!)

And don’t forget to comment as you hop today! There will be some prizes given away to lucky folks chosen at random during the course of the blog hop. Comments on all the blogs will be taken until midnight, Tuesday!

Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be back again later.

Today’s card (10-22)

Yeppers. Another day. Another card.
2_Blog_HelloLike1_teriThe Say It – Hello and I Like You stamp sets (and the Say It – Hello steel die) are getting a workout around here. (Wink!)

Again, dug out some Midway paper from October Afternoon, as well as some Bundled Up paper from Crate Paper, for this one.

2_Blog_HelloLike2_teriThought this might be a fun card to send to a friend, who has been on my mind this week.

Well, that’s all I have for now. I’ll be later!
