Today’s cards (11-12)

Hi guys!

A few more cards to share with you today.

Clean and quick, but fun. Again. All similar. All the result of my recent Christmas card binge.

So meet today’s cards.

I once again used the Tis the Season set and coordinating dies from Ellen Hutson’s Essentials by Ellen line. I also used the Holly Jolly set to add the little stars.

Once again, went with a soft color combo. Sometimes, it’s just fun to do something you don’t normally do. I don’t often use soft color combos.

Added a little shading under the cars by taking a rag, picking up a small amount of black ink on it and then rubbing into onto the cards. I like how it grounds the cars. It’s nice to not have the cards look like they are floating.

Anyhooooo, that’s all I have for you today. Be back again later, gators. See you soon!




Christmas Card Challenge 2016

Hi guys!

It’s Challenge time again. My friend, Ashley, and I are kicking off our annual Christmas Card Challenge!

What is it, you ask? Simple. We are trying to push each other make some cards and so here we are.

This is my first card in honor of this year’s challenge. ūüôā

The mouse and words are from the Unity’s Merry, Moe & Joe stamp set. It is one of my favorite Christmas stamp sets out there this year. Just. So. Cute. And different. I like different than the same old.

Cut the rectangle and half circle elements with the Blueprints 21 Die-namics from My Favorite Things. The Blueprint dies remain some of my fave because you get a lot of practical, useful dies in each set. Go, MFT!

You might be wondering about the white snowy stuff. I created those little dots with some of Nuvo Crystal Dots. A repetitive process and yet an easy peasy process.

Overall, I got to admit: This card feels a little bit like a hot mess. I mean, there’s a lot going on for a “normal Teri” card but it’s OK. Sometimes, it’s more about having fun than being perfect-o. Actually, a lot the times it is. ūüôā

Alright. That’s what I have. Be back again later, gators. And stop by Ashley’s blog to see her take on today’s challenge.

Hey Hey Hey handmade card by Teri //

Ta-da! I played around with the new Boob Tubes dies that work perfectly with the coordinating Boob Tubes stamp set.

I wanted to do something different so I cut and stamped three TVs and stacked them up. I used Paper Smooches’ class Party Posse stamp set to the stamp the critters onto the screens.

To give the card a little dimension, I applied glossy accents the TV buttons, as well as on the critters eyes and noses. That gives them just the right amount of pop, in my opinion.

Well, that’s all I have today. I’ll be back again later, gators. Hope to see you again soon. (I hope.)
