Today’s card (4-21)

Hi, friends!

Back again with another stamped card to share with you.

Meet today’s card.

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

Just a little “for fun” card that came as the result of messing around once again with the Three Amigos stamp set (and coordinating dies) from Mama Elephant.

I just love the little signs the animals hold in the stamp set. And I love that they are blank so you can really do all kinds of things with them.

I wanted to make a card for a friend, who is always there for everyone with a kind word and hug, so I went with these phrases. I easily could have turned this into a birthday card to give to another friend instead by using different words.

I was pretty pleased with the card when I added the stamped images to it, but I felt like it needed some extra pop so I used Nuvo Crystal Drops to add a circle (Look really, really really close! It’s black!) to the die-cut circle. Then I used white Nuvo Crystal Drops to make a white dot border outside the black circle.

I also added some dots with red Crystal Drops to my little stamped, colored (with markers) and die-cut hearts.

I think the dots just add the right little something to a card.

Anyway,  that’s it for today. I’ll be back again later, friends. See you soon.

Inspired By Challenge (+ Valentine Challenge)

Hi guys!

Super tickled to be joining my friend, Laurel, in taking part in her Inspired By challenge.  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.

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) 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!

Today’s card (1-23)

Hi guys!

Another day. Another card to share.

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

Made this guy while I still had supplies out from my last challenge with Ashley.

You just can’t go wrong with dogs! The cute dogs, dog stuff and dog words are from a dog stamp and die set by Mama Elephant and produced by Hampton Art. The set is based on Mama Elephant’s Playful Pups set. (It’s the cutest!)DogYappyBirthdayCard-teri

I was feeling adventurous when I colored in the dogs so I gave one of the dogs some spots. They might be a little too perfect to be realistic but, you know what they say, anything is possible in card land. Wink, wink!

The friend word is from a stamp set from Paper Smooches, while the hearts were cut with some dies from Lawn Fawn.

All the patterned papers are just random pieces from my box of scraps.

Alright! That’s it for me today. I’ll be back again later, friends. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.

Dog Stamp Challenge!

Hi guys!

My pal, Ashley, and I are at it again, challenging each other to make cards.

Both of us recently picked up the cute dog stamp and die set by Mama Elephant and produced by Hampton Art. The set is based on Mama Elephant’s Playful Pups set. (Love it!) Anyway, we challenged each other to make something with the set!

So here’s what I came up with.

DogFriendMissYouCard-Teri

The images and all the words (other than friend) are from the set. I just love that little dog. The friend word is from a sentiment stamp set from Paper Smooches. I just like the combination the phrase and word together. Plus, I’m going to send this card to a friend. 🙂

I also added a few hearts, which were cut with some hearts dies from Lawn Fawn.  I just love adding hearts (and stars) to my little stamped scenes. I think they just make things cuter.

I also added a few dots to my card. I made them with white and black Nuvo Crystal Drops.  Love those things.

Alright! That’s what I have.

Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her take on the challenge. See you again soon!

2017 Christmas Card Challenge

Hi guys!

Back again with another take on the 2017 Christmas Card Challenge with my buddy, Ashley!

I wanted to do something different today…. and well, yeah.  😉

UnicornChristmasCard_teri

Unicorns & Christmas? Yep. Different. And this was the result.

Always fun to push yourself to do something different when making cards. Let’s be real here for a minute: Do I love these cards? I like them. I don’t love them but it was fun to do something different. I’ve not seen a Christmas unicorn before so I decided to give it a go. I’m glad I did and that’s why I am sharing. 🙂

The unicorn and rainbow are from the Mama Elephant Unicorn stamp and die set that Hampton Art produced and is available at Jo-Ann Stores. Not sure where else, but that’s where I found it.  (It’s based on Mama Elephant’s fabulous Unicorns & Rainbows stamp set.) The words are a mash up of sentiments from My Favorite Things’ Toasty Greetings and Magical Unicorns sets. I did some masking to basically make the custom sentiment. The star stamp is also from MFT.

I once again created a background for my scene with the help of MFT’s Cloud stencil. Gosh, how fun that thing is!

Be back again tomorrow. In the meantime, be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her latest take on this year’s challenge.
