Sea You Soon Card

Hi, guys!

Here today with a quick little card I put together the other day to send to a good buddy just for the fun of it.

A stamped card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

Created this guy mostly with products from Jillibean Soup.

I picked up the scallop die (from Jillibean’s Square die set) from a stamp store as it was closing awhile back. I just loved it, plus it was super affordable. Like $4. Can’t beat that. SeaYouSoonCard-2-teri

The little critters (and words and wave) were stamped with a couple sets – Octopus and Whale Done. I’m a big fan of mixing and matching stamp sets together so really enjoyed that these little sea critters could play together…. so speak.

To add the dots to my windows, I pulled out my white gel pen. And then I just added the dots… slowly and surely. It took a little patience to add so many dots, but I think the final result makes it worth it.

Alrighty! That’s what I have. Ok. Maybe I have a little more… but it’s super duper later and I’m super duper tired…. so I’ll be back again later. Thanks, as always, for stopping by. I sure appreciate it when you do.

Ps. If you are on Instagram, don’t miss this awesome giveaway Jillibean Soup has going on. You could win a lot (and I mean A LOT) of stamps from them. Seriously good stuff. Be sure to comment on their post.

Birthday Card Challenge No. 6

Hi, guys!

Another day. Another birthday card for the challenge with Ashley.

A stamped birthday card by Teri || terisplace,wordpress.com

Pulled from my scrap pile to make this guy. Use some scrap papers from a couple of the new lines of paper from Jillibean Soup.  And the stamps and the words are also from Jillibean.BirthdayBalloonCard2--teri

The balloon works well on shaker cards, but I wanted to stretch myself and try something else. I fashioned my own balloon by cutting a couple circles with some Jillibean dies. I also added the flag (also cut with Jillibean dies) and embellishments to it. Think it turned out kinda fun!

I did something I like to do a lot: I stamped a sentiment on a cardstock strip, added a little twine to it and then adhered it to my card with foam tape. Easy peasy… and fun.

Alright. That’s it for now. Be sure to hit Ashley’s blog to see her latest birthday card!

Today’s card (4-6)

Hello again!

Another day. Another card. Hooray.

I had so much fun making this.Tried to step out of my comfort zone here and do some different stuff.

Believe it or not, the card isn’t really floating. I actually made the base from a clear transparency.

The “It Is…” panel is from Jillibean Soup. I added the stitch marks to it and then plopped it onto a printed Project Life card to add a little subtle color.

The butterflies, too, are from Jillibean Soup. I tried to sauce them up a bit by stitching the lines.

So someone could actually write a message in this card (because  that would be like… nice, you know), I adhered a blank journaling card inside the card.

Be back again later, y’all!
