Ellen Hutson March Pin-Sights Challenge

Hi guys!

Super tickled to help my friends from Ellen Hutson kick off this month’s Pin-Sights Challenge.

What is the challenge? Well, it’s a monthly challenge! Every month, there’s a Color Trend Inspirational photo put on the CLASSroom blog. The challenge this month?

Pretty, huh?!


I was inspired by the color scheme from the challenge and used Copic markers (somewhat similar to the colors) to draw lines across the panel I planned to place on the card. I wasn’t 100% exact, and I think that’s a-OK. Just trying to keep things real here.

I stamped the flower from the Mondo Peony set three times onto the card panel. I also stamped a sentiment from the Warm Fuzzies set. Then I got a little bit fancy. I used the coordinating dies to cut out one of the flowers.

I plopped it on some foam adhesive and added it to the card. Hard to tell in the first picture, but this one shows the little bit of dimension it added.


Pretty cool, huh?!

Well, that’s all I have for you. Be sure to check out the post on The CLASSroom for inspiration. And be sure to link up your take on it over there too!

A random challenge participant will receive a $50 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson store.  To be eligible, you MUST use Essentials by Ellen products and the photo badge as inspiration. There will be an Inlinkz link up on the challenge post where you can submit your projects.


Birthday Card Challenge No. 1

Hi guys!

Back again. Back again making cards because of a challenge with my friend, Ashley. This time? We’re challenging each other to make birthday cards.

So meet today’s card.

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

Created this little scene using a few different Lawn Fawn stamp sets (and dies). I’d like to tell you I had some grand plan for making the card look like this, but it really just came together organically. I created the card and present stack and then was like “What about this? What about that?” And so I went building a stamped scene.SendingBirthdayHugsCard2_teri

The sentiment was created by pairing together words from a couple different sentiment stamp sets. Then I took my trusty red pen and drew the little punctuation arrow for the birthday word.  Turned out pretty cute.

Ok. This is all I have. Be sure to hit Ashley’s blog to see her first take on this Birthday Challenge. And be sure to stop by again tomorrow to see Challenge Card No. 2.

Pretty Pink Posh March Release Blog Hop


Hi guys!

Super duper fun times today! Super duper tickled to be joining the Pretty Pink Posh gang in celebrating PPP’s March release. It’s… just… so… so… so great!

Made a couple cards to share with you that were created with the goods. How about we take a look?

Please meet Card No. 1.

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

Created this first guy with the help of the Best of Luck stamp set and coordinating Best of Luck dies.

Truly, it is such a delightful set. You’ve got everything you need to make a fun little scene. In fact, I found myself stamping the images from the set over and over and die-cutting them to mock up all sorts of fun scenes.


I just love how the little guy is tossing the coins and shamrock and clover in the air. I opted to color the coins in for this card, but I thought it would be fun in the future to use sequins or some of PPP’s Lemon Drop Jewels on the stamped coins instead.

And meet Card No. 2.


Yep. I once again created a card with the Best of Luck stamps and dies. They are just so fun… and versatile.


This card is a little more graphic than the last one, but it’s still as cute as can be.

And, finally, meet Card No. 3.


This time, I made a card with the Bunny Friends stamps and coordinating dies.


I wanted to add a little texture to the bunny so I used a couple gray markers and added some dots to him. It’s subtle, but I think it’s pretty cool looking. I like how it just adds a little something.

Alright! That’s all I have got for you. Be sure to check out the rest of the hop!

Technique Tuesday Release Day


Hi, all!

March 1st means the new release at Technique Tuesday is live. You’ll find all the new goods right here.

And I’m sharing a project today created with a couple of the new products.

A handmade card by Teri for Technique Tuesday // TechniqueTuesday.com

Created this little dude with the new Gertie & Garth Goat stamps and coordinating dies.

I just had fun with this card by stamping several elements from the stamp set, cutting them with the dies and the coloring them in with my trusty old markers.

Created the little scene by pairing everything together. Rather than letting the goat, cans and flowers “float” in the air, I used a cosmetic sponge to sponge a little black ink onto the card. It’s just a simple little thing to do, but it’s a great way to “ground” your stamped images.

You might be wondering about the label. That’s was cut with Technique Tuesday’s Retro Labels dies. I cut it, stamped the image on it and then added a little pop with some foam tape. I always like adding a little extra dimension with foam adhesives.

Alrighty! That’s what I have. Be sure to swing by the Technique Tuesday blog for a list of all the other TT Design Team members sharing projects today. You’ll also find links to their blogs.

Today’s card (2-20)

Howdy friends!

Me again. 🙂 Meet today’s card-a-roo!

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

And the crowd goes wild. Just kidding!

Put this guy together a bit back by just hadn’t got around to sharing it.

I once again used mostly images from the Bugs & Kisses stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I also used the coordinating dies. I also used the cloud stencil from My Favorite Things.


I thought it would be fun for this one to create a little scene of sorts so that’s what I did. I first placed the little swirl on the card and then I added love bugs and hearts. I finished things off by adding a few dots (created with Nuvo Crystal Drops).

I also put a dot on the “i” in kissses. I think it just adds a little something fun to the card.

Ok. That’s it for now. Be back again later! Thanks for stopping by.

Today’s card (2-19)

Hi gang!

Back at it with another card to share.


Made this card a bit back for Technique Tuesday with their new Cheeky Chicken stamp set. Have you seen it? Some of the phrases are pretty dang funny. A few are bit edgy too.


Pretty simple card to make. I stamped the chicken over and over on cardstock. I stamped him one more time on white cardstock, fussy cut his little body out with my handy dandy scissors colored him in and plopped him on the blue paper. To give him a little extra pop, I used a light blue marker to add a little outline around his body. The idea was to draw the eye to him.

The sentiment circle came together like this:

  • Cut two circles. One smaller than other.
  • Stamp sentiment on smaller circle.
  • Plop smaller circle on larger circle. Call it good.
  • Have second thoughts.
  • Add a whole bunch of dots with your dependable friend, Nuvo Crystal Dots.
  • Raise your hands in victory!

Alright! That’s what I got, friends.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by! Oh, and please join me in celebrating the new 2018 Technique Tuesday Design Team! You’ll get to see this awesome crew every month as part of the Technique Tuesday’s brand new New Release Countdown, which will happen on the last 2 days of every month. There’s also three lovely ladies who serving as ambassadors (Tobi Crawford, Birgit Edblom and Jenn Brown) to Technique Tuesday and will be sharing projects on their blogs during the year.

Today’s card (2-18)

Hi everyone!

Another day. Another card to share.

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

Such a fun little scene to put together!

Most of the images and words are from Lawn Fawn’s Gleeful Gardens stamp set. I also used the coordinating dies.

As it warms up here, mushrooms have begun popping up in my yard. If only the mushrooms in my yard were so delightful as the ones in the stamp set. 😉


I once again created the cloudy background with the help of My Favorite Things’ Cloud stencil. Boy, how I love that tool.

That’s all I have for now. I’ll be back again later, friends. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
