Technique Tuesday Release Countdown Day 1


Hi, guys!

I’m joining the Technique Tuesday gang today in sharing a project made with some goods from the March release.

The new release debuts on March 1st on their website. You can see a few of the new products today on their blog. You’ll also find links to all the other design team members sharing projects today!

I used a couple new products for this guy.

I created the heart with the new Pieces of my Heart die. I cut three hearts from cardstock (red, pink and white). I mounted the pink and the red ones together, and then cut a puzzle piece from the white one and added it to the top. I finished it by adding a small heart covered with glitter glue on top. (The little heart was cut with TT’s Nested Hearts dies).Piece-Of-My-Heart-Card-Teri-A-Technique-Tuesday

The sentiment I used is from the Love You to Pieces stamp set, whichย  debuts on the 1st along with the Pieces of my Heart die.

It’s good for cards and scrapbook pages. And I’m sure you could come up with a bunch of other uses for it too! It’s packed with lots of great words.

Look for all of Technique Tuesday’s new products to debut on the 1st. You’ll find them in the New Products category on their website.

And, once again, be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog for links to the blogs of all the other TT Design Team members sharing projects today.

See you again tomorrow with another project made with some March release products!


Today’s card (2-16)

Hi gang!

Me again. Feeling the card vibe still. Got another one to share with you.

So meet today’s card.

A stamped card by Teri // terisplace,

Thought this might be a fun card to send to a friend.

The little food images are from Lawn Fawn’s Sweet Friends stamp set (and coordinating dies). The words are from the stamp set too.

Iย  originally picked up the stamp set and was all set on going die-free with it. But those arms and legs? Yeah. Totally sucked me into to getting the dies to use with the stamps. They are just… kinda… sorta… awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚


The papers are once again from my box of scraps. I actually think the polka dots are from Lawn Fawn. The ledger paper is not. (Fancy Pants, I believe.)

Yet again I added some dots with some white Nuvo Crystal Drops. Always such a fun addition.

Alright! Tis’ it for now. Be back again later, gators. Thank you again for stopping by!

Today’s card (2-14)

Hi everyone!

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m here again with a card in honor of the big day.

A stamped card by Teri //

I once again dug into my stash of Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. Sometimes, you just got use things that make you happy. Truly, Lawn Fawn does that for me. Just such a happy line of products.

I used mostly stamps from the Bugs and Kisses set (and coordinating dies).pinklovebugscard2-teri

Pretty simple, straight-forward card so there isn’t too much to say. Other that I must admit that I was somewhat (even as I write this I am) over the little black dots I added to the card with my (beloved) Nuvo Crystal Drops. I got a little crazy and got a little too much drop (and splattered) near one of the hearts. I easily could have tossed the card… or came up with some way to hide it… but in keeping it real, I’m running with it by (1) keeping the card as it is and (2) showing you … and pointing it out. So yeah. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyhoooooo, that’s what I have for you. Thanks, as always, for stopping by!

Sending you lots of happy thoughts this Valentine’s Day!


Valentine Challenge

Hi again, friends!

Sneaking in one more time with one more take on the Valentine Challenge with my pal, Ashley.

This is today’s card.

A handmade card by Teri //

Ta-da! As always, just had fun while making this card. Just. Plain. Had. Fun.

The whales and words are from Lawn Fawn’s Whale You Be Mine stamp set. I also used the coordinating dies.


I wanted the whales to look a little different so I colored them in, did the whole “Copic blending thing” if you know what I mean. Wink! Then I took a dark marker and added a few more swooshes (and brushes) of ink… because I could. I like the result. ๐Ÿ™‚

All the papers on my card are just random pieces of paper from my scrapbox.

The card seemed a little flat so I whipped out clear Glossy Accents and Nuvo Crystal Drops to add a bunch of dots to the card. As you can tell, I spared no expense when it came to adding dots.

Alrighty! That’s it for me today. Once again, be sure to hit Ashley’s blog to see her most recent take on the challenge.


Inspired By Challenge (+ Valentine Challenge)

Hi guys!

Super tickled to be joining my friend, Laurel, in taking part in her Inspired By challenge.ย  This week’s challenge is to make something inspired by this picture.


So cute, right?! (I’m also counting my take on it for today’s Valentine challenge with Ashley!)

So meet today’s card!

I just had a whole lotta fun here, creating a cute little “love” mail scene.

A handmade card by Teri //

I think the cloudy background makes it. Made that bad boy with a cloud stencil from My Favorite Things. If you are a stamped scene builder like I am, stop what you are doing. Get the stencil. You’ll love it. I can assure it. (PS. No affiliate links or sponsorship to say that. I’m truly just a fan!)

All the images and words on the card came from a couple different stamp sets: Gleeful Gardens and (retired)ย You’ve Got Mail from Lawn Fawn and Three Amigos from Mama Elephant.SnailMailFriendsCard2-teri

Love it when you can mix different stamp sets together and end up with something that pleases you.

Added a little extra pop to the card by adding a few dots with some white, black and pink Nuvo Crystal Drops. I love those things.

Alright! That’s all I have. Be sure to check out the other takes on the Inspired By image…. and be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her latest take on our Valentine challenge.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by!


Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop


Hi guys !

Back on the old blog-a-roo with another card to share! Couldn’t resist making something in honor of the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop.

So meet today’s card.

A handmade card by Teri //

Cha-cha! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Just had fun here, letting the frame cutting die-cut lead me on where to place the stamped images.

The cups, beans, heart, steam and words are all from the Perk Up stamp set, which (in full disclosure here) I designed for Technique Tuesday.


I did all the coloring on the card with markers. I was trying to be all cool and stuff so I added a little shadow at the bottom of each cup with a darker marker and then blended in the color with the lighter marker. The shadow on the cups is subtle but I think it looks kinda cool.


I did the same thing with the coffee beans too. ๐Ÿ™‚

I wish I had more to say to you, but it’s the end of the weekend. I’m tired. The writing tank is dry so that’s what I got. I’ll try to give you a wordier post next time.

But be sure to swing by the Bloghop to see lots of other cool coffee-themed projects. Always so fun to see what everyone comes up with!

See you again soon, friends. Thanks, as always, for stopping by!


Today’s cards (11-13)

Hi guys!

Me again. Big surprise, right?

A couple more cards to share today. Broke my Christmas card binge with a couple non-Christmas cards. Made both of these just for fun.

A handmade card by Teri //

Both of these use the Baby Birds stamp set and coordinating dies from Paper Smooches. I stamped and cut a bunch of these at a craft night a week or so ago with some of my friends and then came home and colored them over the weekend.

I literally had this whole stack of birds, waiting to go on cards. So I messed around (well, dinked around) and figured out how to arrange all four of them together to fit on one card. The result? Two cards. Kinda fun, right?

A handmade card by Teri //

One thing I feel to compelled to stay is back when I was a wee cardmaker and scrapbooker, I felt like I always had to color things exactly as they are in the real world. So like the little toucan dude, I would have gone to EXTREME lengths to color him with the proper colors. As I’ve become old and grumpy…. errr… a more experienced crafter…. I’ve gotten away from that and started coloring things with colors that make me happy. It’s kinda freeing to just do your thing and run with it. Anyway…

Alright! That’s what I have for you. I’ll be back again later this week, friends. See you again soon.
