Hi guys!

Super excited to be joining some of my favorite paper crafters and crafting companies for the this year’s Seasons Givings Blog Hop!

This little hop, dreamed up 6 years ago by friend, Latisha, is a fun way to celebrate the crafting community. Everybody bands together to share blog posts and do a giveaway … on every single stop.

It’s a fun way to kick off the new year!

I’ve got just something small this year for my giveaway.

I have a set of Pa-Rum-Pa-Pum-Pum stamps from Lawn Fawn (yes, they are slightly yellow but they have never been used) and a couple fun pens (an orange gel pen and a Cactus gel pen). I’ve got some plans involving funky pens like them in 2018. Stay tuned for that.

For a shot at my giveaway, leave a comment on my blog midnight PST on Jan. 6th, 2018. I’ll pick a winner and notify her or him sometime on the 8th. I’ll announce it here after I’ve notified the winner.

Alright! That’s what I got. Here’s a complete list of blog hoppers! Be sure to check out all the stops.

Happy hopping!

Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Hi guys!

Me again! Shocked? Been on a bit of a card roll and couldn’t resist sharing one more quick card made in honor of the Coffee Lovers Bloghop.

Drum roll, please. Here we go.

Boom! Wink!

It was quick to make this one. Had the stamps so… just wanted to play.

The cup and assorted cup-like things are all from Lawn Fawn’s Pumpkin Spice set. Yes, so, so cute… and a must for a Pumpkin Spice Latte lover, although it could totally pass off for cocoa. Don’t you agree?

The words from the Perk Up set from Technique Tuesday.

Always fun to pair two sets together that are different styles but have the same theme going on. Mixing and matching really does make me happy.

Used my trusty white Nuvo Crystal Dots to add some subtle dots with the shaking scene that’s going on. Super simple but a fun way to add a little kick to a card.

Anyhoooo, that’s what I got. Be sure to swing by the hop. So many great cards! Bravo to all the participants!

Today’s card (6-2)

Hi guys!

Just a little something to share today.

Made this card recently, just for the fun of it. I haven’t had much time just to play lately. It was really nice to just play.

All the stamps on this guy are from the new Upon A Star stamp set from Lawn Fawn. How, how I love it. I fussy cut the little guys and yellow stars with scissors. (Translation: Teri was el’cheapo when it came to getting the dies for this one… so yeah… scissors were my friend-a-roo. Just keeping it all real, kids. I am nothing but real.)

The little hill was cut with a die from My Favorite Things.

To make the little foxes’ noses stand out, I put little drops onto them with good ol’ Nuvo Crystal Drops. And those little white drops near yellow stars? Yeppers. Created them with Nuvo Crystal Drops too.

Alright! This is what I have for you. Be back later, gators. See you again soon.

Today’s card (4-11)

Hi guys!

Just sharing a card I started last week and finished up this week, just in time for Easter.

The sweet girl + basket and the words are from Pretty Pink Posh, as are the sequins. Let’s be honest: I’m not the best color’er, but, good gosh, people, I try. I colored her in with markers and then added a few extra details with colored pencils and a white gel pen + some Glossy Accents and a Wink of Stella glitter pen (it’s subtle but there on the ears). I think she turned out alright.

The banner was cut with a die from Lawn Fawn (LOVE IT), and the patterned paper is from a stack of paper from My Favorite Things. Crazy thing. I colored the girl in first and went looking for patterned paper. I discovered that I am COMPLETELY lacking in purple patterned papers so I was totally lucky to find this piece in my MFT stash. I guess I could have went to the craft store (Oh, the horror! Hee!) to find something else, but I decided I could make do. Yep. Make do. (Translation: Not allowing myself to be tempted at the craft store by all the other stuff at the craft store seemed like a good idea at the time… because… seriously… who goes for one piece of paper and leaves with just one piece of paper? Not I, people. Not I. Anyhoo, I digress.)

Alright, friends. This is what I have for the day!

Thanks, as always, for stopping by. Always a treat when you do.

Christmas Card Challenge 2016: 5

Hi guys!

Back again with another take on this year’s Christmas Card Challenge with Ashley.

This is today’s card.

blog-snow-cool-penguins-christmas-card-teri

I once again used pulled out a Lawn Fawn stamp set. I used just one this time. That was the Snow Cool stamp set (and coordinating dies). I couldn’t resist adding bow ties to the penguins. I mean, it just gives them a little extra special character. You agree?

To make the hills seem a little more icy, I once again whipped out some glitter glue and put it along the slopes.

Alright. This is all I have for today. Be sure to bop on by Ashley’s blog to see her latest take on the challenge.

Christmas Card Challenge: 4

Hi guys!

Another day. Another crack at this year’s Christmas Card Challenge with Ashley!

Just continued having some stamp-tastic fun by making this card.

I went Lawn Fawn stamp crazy… or cray cray, as some would say. 😉  I used all these stamp sets: Winter Alpaca; Happy Trails; Toboggan Together and Snow Cool. I also used the coordinating dies for all them, other than Snow Cool. Just used the sentiment and snowy pattern (at the top of the card) for that one.

The little hills in the background were cut with a die from My Favorite Things.

To make the snow pop, I once again whipped out some Nuvo Crystal Drops and added a few few dots to the snow. I think like how it just added a little bit of texture, as well as a bit of dimension too. Kinda fun!

Alright, so this is day 4 of the challenge.

Be sure to hit Ashley’s blog to see her take on this time. I’ll be back again Monday with another card based on the challenge.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by. I appreciate your kind words.

Christmas Card Challenge 2016: 2

Hi guys!

Another day. Another take on my Christmas Card Challenge with Ashley.

Here is today’s Christmas card.

A handmade card created by Teri // terisplace.wordpress.com

Just had some fun with this one. Shopped my stamping stash and pulled out some awesome Lawn Fawn stamp sets and dies: Happy Trails; Toboggan Together and Snow Cool. One of things I dig quite a lot about Lawn Fawn is it’s so easy to mix and match their products together. I’m pretty sure all these things are from different releases. Kinda fun that they can all play together.

So I was going for a little snowy scene here. To make that stamped snowy background pop a little more, I added some dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops. I think it just gives the background a nice feel.

Also to make the scene a little more magical, I added some glitter glue to the top of the snowdrifts. Such an easy thing to do. Just required a little extra patience to give the glue time to dry.

Ok. That’s what I have today. Be sure to check out Ashley’s blog to see her latest take on the challenge.
