A Super Duper Card…

Hi, everyone!

Me again with another handmade stamped card to share with you. Today’s card is super… well, it features some super duper heroes. Super heroes, that is.

Meet today’s card.

IncredibleSuperheroCard-teri

I just had fun the other day, coloring in these two heroes from the new  Super Duper stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps. In full disclosure: I’ve been on a big super hero kick for awhile so I totally gravitated toward this set!

I stamped the two heroes on cardstock, colored them in with markers and fussy cut them with my scissors. My fussy cutting wasn’t exactly perfect so I used a trick from one of my friends: I took a black marker and ran it along the edges. Easy peasy. And a super nice way to cover up the boo boos. A stamped super hero card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

The clouds are some I stamped and die-cut while working a bit back with the Sunnyville stamp set from Paper Smooches. Always fun when you can mix and match different products together.

Oh, you might be wondering about the background! It’s one I made awhile ago while messing around with watercolors and watercolor paper. I added a couple stamped stars to it when I put it on the card. I used a colored pencil to add a little color to each star as well.

Alright. That’s it for now. I’ll be back later, gators. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.

It’s Been Awhile: All Inside Stamp Set

Hi, friends!

Back again with a card that uses a stamp set I’ve not given a lot of love to in awhile, All Inside by Julie Ebersole from Ellen Hutson.

I feel like saying, “Hello, old friend,” when talking about this stamp set. I have loved this stamp set for so long, but it just hasn’t seen a lot of love lately from me. And since I’ve been trying to give a little more love to those stamp sets I’ve had for a long time and haven’t inked up in awhile, I decided it was a good time to bring it back to my craft table.

A stamped friendship card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.comI didn’t go super crazy on coloring the bear. Instead I grabbed a couple gray markers and added a few highlights (or shadows) on to the bear’s fur. It’s subtle and a fun look I think.

It was sure fun creating this little scene for the card. The bear’s basket and flowers were stamped with the Bear Ware stamp set (and coordinating dies). It’s a really a fun way to sauce up the bear and make him (or her) unique.

BearHugsDogCard-teri

I felt like this little bear just need something extra so I added a dog. I love how the little dog is looking up so lovingly! Hehe! I stamped the dog with the Animal Sweaters set from Flora & Fauna. Yes, it’s a Christmas set… but so many images can easily be used to make cards all year round. I love that.

The card’s friendly sentiment is also from the All Inside stamp set. A little secret: I cut the panel a little too big and had adhere it to the card so I fixed it by stamping a few polka dots with Patternology stamp set from Paper Smooches. I had to do a little masking off the end of the panel to make sure no stray marks ended up on my card, but it was well worth it!

Alright. That is it for me today. I hope you enjoyed checking out this friendship card. I’ll be back again later, friends.

 

Spring 2019 | Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – 1

http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2019/05/2019-spring-summer-coffee-lovers-blog-hop-2/

Hi, guys!

Just squeaking in a last minute card in honor of the latest Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

I’ve been busy with life stuff so haven’t had much time to craft during the hop this time. Such a bum dog. The hop always inspires me to get to my craft table… and play, play, play! But, at least, I’ve got one card for the hop, even if it is the last day! 😉

A stamped card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

Created this little card with the new Tea-riffic stamp set from The Letter Lingo. Such a darling little set. Rather than going all coffee like for this one (because the genius of the set is can be used to make coffee or TEA cards), I decided to make a tea-themed card.CLP_CupofTea2_teri

Did a little “old school” masking so the girl would look like she was peeking around the cup.

Totally last minute decision to add the sentiment to the cup. Originally, I’d been planning to stamp it elsewhere but saw it would fit perfectly on it and ran with it.

Alright! That’s it for me. I’ll be back again later, gators. Thanks for stopping by! And don’t forget to check out the hop! There are so many lovely projects linked up to it!

A handmade card for Paper Smooches by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

Created this bad boy with the new Daddy Yo 2 stamp set ad Daddy Yo 2 Icons dies. (I also used the Fab Frames dies from last months’ release.)

Nothing really super fancy to share about this card other than I did lots and lots of coloring. 🙂

I thought this card might be a good one to give a favorite male family member or a good male friend.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and the hop! I’ll be back again later. Thanks for stopping by!

Today’s card (4-12)

Hi, everyone!

Dropping by today to share a card created with one of Paper Smooches’ new crafting dies. I’m just so excited to send this card to one of my stamping friends.

A handmade "Missing You" card by Teri | Created with Paper Smooches stamps & dies

The flowers were created with the new Stemmed Rose Dies. Rather than doing a bunch of paper piecing and all, I cut them from white cardstock and then used my markers to add a little color to them. It is kind of a tedious task with thin, intricate dies, but I think the results are almost always stunning.

TeriStemmedRoseDiesCLOSE

Now, this card has a fun little twist. The die set comes with a mat die. Rather than matting the flowers onto mats, I used the mat die to cut a window out out of the front of the card. I placed one of the flowers inside the card, right so you could see it through the window.

TeriStemmedRoseDiesClose2

One thing I did on the front of the card, to make the flowers stand out on it, was I opened it and sponging a little blue ink onto it. I did it softly, over and over in a circle. I also added a sentiment (perfect for my stamping friend) from the Fun & Flirty stamp set.

To finish things off, I added couple sequins. They are always a nice, fairly flat, way of finishing a card.

Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be back again later, gators.

PS. Don’t miss this post I shared over the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog recently! It shows a fun way to use foil to make a wedding card!

Alright, enough hop talk. Let’s get on with the card.

A handmade card featuring stamps and dies from Paper Smooches

Created this little guy with the new Mini Flowers Dies. All the flowers were made by mixing and matching the little dies together. No real rhyme or reason on my part… just being random for the fun of it. 🙂

The vase was cut with the mat die from the new Stemmed Rose Dies. I actually cut off the flower part and kinda just ran with it. I think the card is cute but modern… or modern but cute… by pairing the dies together.

The words are from the previously released Fun & Flirty stamp set. It’s such a fun set of sentiments that are perfect to send to your card making buddies.
Alrighty, friends. That is all I have for you today. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and check out the hop! See you again soon!

So enough hop talk. Let me show you what I’ve got.

I’ve put together this little gem, featuring the new So Fairy Cute stamps and dies.

TeriProject2

I think the bear is one of the cutest big bear stamps I’ve seen in awhile. I just love those little wings!
I love that the bear could be a cute whimsical fairy…. or even been used at a tooth fairy.
Rather than going all “tooth fairy” here, I wanted to create a simple happy scene. Truthfully, it wasn’t that simple with all the coloring, but whatever. 😉
To give a little pop to the background, I sponged some blue ink onto the card, stamped a few stars and added a few dots (randomly) with Glossy Accents.

Kinda hard to tell but I also added just a pinch of glitter to the bear’s crown. It gives it just the right amount of sparkle.

Alright! That’s what I got for you today.

Are you a Paper Smooches fan? Don’t forget to get out the monthly challenge to show off what you are doing with Paper Smooches’ stamps and dies. The challenge is always on the PS blog.
