Today’s card (5-21)

Hi, gang!

Here again with a card to share with you. Because… that’s what I do.

Take it away, Today’s Card.

And the crowd goes wild! Wink!

Created this guy with the Billy Silly Goats stamp set that was just released by Ink Blot Shop. (It’s also available right here over at Simon Says Stamp!) My friend, Tifany, (the sweet soul behind Ink Blot Shop) let me play with the stamps a little early and this little card is the result.

There’s all kinds of silly goat-y goodness in the stamp set. All kinds of cute little boy and girl goats.

This little one cracked me up so, you know, had to make a card.

I stamped the little guy on cardstock. I used some (I swear to you, people, I could not make this up if I tried) cheap-o markers (and freaking awesome markers) I picked up on Amazon for a whopping $20 to do the coloring and then did a little fussy cutting. I sponged a little blue ink onto a card and stamped the little fella again. I adhered the fussy cut goat on top (with 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, which are my go-to dimensional adhesive).

And then I stamped a couple more cans, some hearts and those words. I did a little more coloring and added some white dots around the image. I also added some patterned paper and some staples (for good measure). 😉

Anyway, in the end, it turned out pretty good, if I do I say so myself.

Alright! That’s what I go. Be back again soon, friends.

Today’s card (5-10)

Hi, guys!

Back again with a card to share with you! Because… that’s what I do. Wink!

Just a “for fun” card!

Created this goofy little scene with the new Let’s Flamingle stamps and dies from My Favorite Things. They just came out. (Thank you, sweet friend, who shared them with me.)

Flamingos have a special place in my heart. Many plastic flamingos have graced my yard over the years. They humor me greatly. 😉 Flamingoparty2card-teri

I thought it would be fun to create a goofy scene with them so I die-cut, stamped and colored several drink glasses for my scene. I even added some “salt” to them with glitter glue.

I initially had planned to have all the glasses surround one of the ‘mingos, but I made a last minute decision that one should serve as a hat too. Because… it made me chuckle. Hopefully it does for you too!

By the way, you might be wondering about the background behind the flamingos. I created that sky with the help of MFT’s Cloud stencil. It’s such a fantastic tool for making scene cards. I’d totally recommend getting one to anyone who likes to make stamped scenes.

Anyway, that is all I have for you. Thanks for taking the time to check out my card today.

Technique Tuesday New Release Countdown: Day 2

New-Release-Countdown-Day-2

Hi, guys!

Back again with a couple more projects to share with you that I made with some of the new goods that will debut on the Technique Tuesday website on May 1st.

Please give it up for Card No. 1.

This was a fun one to make. I used to the new Sassy Guy set to stamp all the images and words.

In full disclosure, I contributed to the set. And I must admit that I ran every saying in the set by guys as I wanted the set to have phrases that could be used on cards that would, well, make guys smile. My feelers passed the test and so the set came to be.

The patterned papers are all from my stash-a-roo. I always enjoy making my own little background with scraps and so that’s what I did here.

Meet Card No. 2.

Rainbow-Grad-Card-Teri-A-Technique-Tuesday

I created this rainbow-style graduation card with the new Congrats Grad stamp set. This set is pretty cool because it’s a 4×6 set. The images and words in it are as such that you can use the set to make cards … or scrapbook pages. It’s always nice to have stamps that give you a lot of bang for the buck.

Today’s card (4-21)

Hi, friends!

Meet today’s card.

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.

Lawn Fawn Challenge: Day 4

Hi, gang!

Back again to share another card created for the Lawn Fawn Challenge with my pal, Ashley!

Meet today’s card.

Ta-da!

I was dying to make a card with the Party Panda stamps and dies set that you can get this year during your birthday month with Lawn Fawn. So the panda and bamboo (times 2) were stamped and cut with the set.

The conversation bubbles were stamped and cut with the A Little Birdie Told Me stamps and dies. I thought it would be fun to make it look like the little panda bears were talking to each other.

Alright! That’s all I have today. I’ll be back again later.

Lawn Fawn Challenge: Day 3

Hi again!

A happy Thursday to you! I’m here once again with a take on the Lawn Fawn Challenge with my pal, Ashley. We both are sure having fun digging into our stashes and playing with their stamps and dies.

Meet today’s card.

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

Decided to make a birthday card today.

Pulled out the Hang In There stamp set (and coordinating dies) that I, ironically, treated myself to for my birthday last year. 😉 The sloth, leaves and hat are all from that set.

Did some good old coloring with markers to add color to the little guy. Went a little dark with the red on the hat, but, you know what? That’s OK. No need to try to be perfect every(single)time you make a card. Mistakes show a card’s handmade and heart went into making it.

To make the little guy seem a bit more realistic, I dabbed a teeny tiny amount of black Nuvo Crystal Drops on his eyes. By the way, I tested it out on scratch paper first to make sure I put the right amount down and used the right amount of pressure (squeeze) on the bottle to not get too much out of it. LfSlothBirthday2-teri

The sentiment was created by combining together words from the So Much To Say set with words from the Hang In There set. Love when you can mix and match things and have them look good together.

Well, that’s it for this card. I’ll be back again later, friends. Thanks, as always, for stopping by. Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her latest challenge card!
