A handmade card for Paper Smooches by Teri //

So I used a couple new dies to make this card – the Religious Words 2 dies and the Dove die.

All the hearts and crosses (and word) were cut with the Religious 2 Words dies, while the dove was cut with the Dove die. I know, you are like, “Duh, Teri. Duh.” Wink.

I cut each piece from watercolor paper and then added a little watercolor paint on top. I wanted a distressed look so I splattered on some water drops. To speed up the drying process, I pulled out my old friend, my trusty dusty heat gun. Love that thing still after all these years. 😉

So that’s what I have for you. I’ll be back later. Imagine that in a Terminator-style voice. Wink!

Have fun hopping today! I appreciate you stopping by.

Today’s card (4-2)

Hi guys!

Got a card to share with you today.


Ta-da! Cha-cha! 😉

Made this one with a new faith-based stamp set I designed for Technique Tuesday that was just released as part of small assortment of faith-based products.


The set is a bit on the light-hearted side. Fun to do.

For the card, I simply die-cut a circle and then stamped on top with a sentiment and the set’s flower. I added color to the flower with markers. Easy peasy.

Because I really wanted the circle to stand out, I added a larger circle under it and then placed all those sequins around it. It took a little bit of time to arrange them, but I sure dig the look.

Alright! That’s what I have for you. Be back again later, gators.
