A Rainbow Card + a Window Card to See

Hi there, friends!

I’m back with another card to share with you.

SendingGoodVibesRainbowCard-teri

This card was quick to put together… and a lot of fun too!

To make the “rainbow”, I cut two sunray backgrounds from white cardstock with the Lawn Fawn die. I set one on my craft table and set the other (temporarily) on my card. Then I used that one as a guide to add the rainbow rays to the card with my colored pencils.

Once I  had the rainbow completed, I adhere the second sun panel to the card. (I kept that first panel so I could make more cards  like this one later.)

Then I stamped a sentiment from the Encouraging Greetings stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh on a strip of cardstock. I added a little bit of thread underneath it and then added it to my card.

This card is fine as it is, but you could always kick it up a notch if you wanted to. Just add sequins or crystal drops to the “rainbow” rays. Gems would be cool too.

Looking for even more card inspiration? Be sure to check this post out on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog! I’ve put together 3 window cards for the post. You’ll get the scoop, plus lots of tips to use adhesives in out-of-the-box ways.

Go-to Gal Designer Challenge: Neat and Tangled

Hey all!

It’s time for another challenge with the Go-to Gals. This time, we challenged each other to make something with products from Neat and Tangled.

So what’s the scoop with these challenges? Well, every so often we challenge each  to make something (TOTALLY for the fun of it) with a specific manufacturer’s products. Sometimes, we all play. Sometimes, we all don’t. That’s OK because it’s all about having fun.

Neat and Tangled was an easy choice! Super cute + super fun products. Plus, Danielle, the owner of Neat and Tangled, is a gem! I’ve had the chance to hang out with her on more than one occasion and can tell you that she is 110% good people! (Hugs, Danielle!)

So enough blabber (… because I really could go on and on and on), here’s the card I made.

By the way, there’s a card I shared the other day, using the same watercolor technique but with N&T’s Favorite stamp.

Here’s how I did it for this card: I just cut a base card from watercolor paper and then scribbled a lot of color with watercolor pencils onto it and then randomly spread the color with water.

I stamped on top with Neat and Tangled’s Warm Wishes stamp. I love that stamp so much! It makes me giddy.

Oh, and if you look really close at my card, you’ll see I added a little bit of white color to the mug. I did that with a pencil. And then I added a little hand stitching with my needle and floss.

Can’t wait to see what rest of the Go-to-Gal crew has cooked up this time

Have a great day, all! Be back again soon.

Go-to Gal Designer Challenge: Hazel & Ruby

Hi all!

It’s time for another challenge with the Go-to Gals. We challenged each other this time to make something with products from Hazel & Ruby.
What’s the deal with these challenges? Well, every so often we challenge each  to make something (just for the fun of it) with a specific manufacturer’s products. Sometimes, we all play. Sometimes, we all don’t. That’s OK because it’s all about having fun.

Ok. So here’s what I got.

Meet #1.

I created two of the circles by simply punching some of Hazel & Ruby’s wrapping paper with a circle punch. The other ones were created with some of Hazel & Ruby’s Washi tape. I just applied it to cardstock and then cut it out with a punch.

And meet #2.

g2g_hr_thankyou1_teri

I used some of the same supplies to make this one. I also threw on a couple sequins (also from Hazel & Ruby).

So that’s what I have.

Can’t wait to see what the rest of the crew cooked up.

Be back again later!

Today’s card (3-27)

Hi all!

Say hello to today’s card.

mfw_stencils_fabulousat_teriI actually made this one a couple days ago and hadn’t posted it here yet.

It was inspired by the Styling with Stencils challenge over on Moxie Fab World. Because, you know, it seems kinda wrong to issue a challenge and not play. I can’t do it. Can’t. 😉

I used a stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop, a pen and a desire to scribble (and scribble and scribble and scribble) to make the “@” panel. It was fun! And totally mess free, which was also fun! :

mfw_stencils_fabulousat2_teriIn addition to the stencil I also used some stuff from Heidi Swapp (word, heart + paper), some star stickers (from Freckled Fawn), a couple sparkly numbers from American Crafts, scalloped washi tape from Hazel & Ruby and a tab punch from Fiskars. A fun mix of stuff to use together.

See you again soon!

Go-to Gal Designer Challenge: Echo Park Paper (3-26)

Hi all!

It’s challenge time again with the Go-to Gals.

We decided this time to challenge each other to make something with products from Echo Park Paper.

What’s the deal with these challlenges, you ask? Well, here’s the scoop. Every month (unless we take a break… because we are flexible like that), we pick a manufacturer and challenge each other to make something with that manufacturer’s products. Sometimes, we all play. Sometimes, we don’t. That’s OK because it’s a “just for fun” thing! 🙂 And it’s also editor-free, which I mean in a 100% loving way. (Note to any editor who may be reading this, just in case: I really do love you guys…. mostly. I KID! I KID! Chillax, man. Sheesh. Tough crowd.)

Ok. So… ummm… yeah. Here’s what I made for this month’s challenge.

ep_awesomedude1_teriI just love Echo Park’s That’s my Boy collection by Lori Whitlock. I don’t have boys. Heck, I don’t have kids (just a dog… a boy dog… but a dog), but I love the feel of the collection. All kinds of fun icons, great colors and good patterns. All in all, it’s the kind of collection that just makes me happy.

I paired together a lot of stickers from the collection for this card. I also added a bit of dimension by placing foam tape under the green and yellow panels. It just adds a little something, I think..

ep_awesomedude2_teriNow, don’t tell my Go-to Gal sistahs in crime that I did cheat a little by adding a couple other elements not from Echo Park to my card (the enamel dot from Doodlebug and the wood star from Studio Calico). Other than that, it’s totally an Echo Park fest of happiness.

Can’t wait to see what the rest of the crew cooked up.

And that’s all for now.

PS. I’m talking trends over on Moxie Fab World today. I’m talking about one that I’ve especially liked watching “unfold”… or fold.

 

Out for the Day… Sorta Kinda (3-19)

(Looking for my Studio AE Blog Hop post? Just go here… or scroll down one post.)

Hi all!

I’m out and about on the Web today.

Got a couple more guest blogger projects over on the blog for Taylored Expressions. Here’s a peek at one of them.

2_endlessgratitude_teri

Go here to see more. 🙂 Thanks again to the TE crew for inviting me to play.

And I’m over on Paper Crafts Connection with a tutorial using a technique involves crayons + steel dies. And … gosh… let me just say that I have been having the most fun ever doing doing this technique.

Here’s a peek.

rubbings_1_teri

Takes me back to being 5 and all… and playing with my Barbie Fashion Plates. 😉

Go here to see more. (By the way, you might have to scroll down a post if you look at this later in the day. They usually have a second post on Wednesdays. They usually appear a few hours after the regularly scheduled Go-to Gal posts, which is what my post is.)

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

Go-to Gal Designer Challenge: Technique Tuesday (2-26)

Hi all!

It’s challenge time again with the Go-to Gals.

Every so often, we pick a company’s products to work with and then challenge each other to make something with them. The rules are simple: There are none! 😉 Sometimes, we all play. Sometimes, we don’t.

The rest of the gang decided this time to use Technique Tuesday’s products. Majority ruled. 😉 (Kidding.)

So here’s the card I cooked up for the challenge.

2_g2g_tt_thankyou_teri

It may look clean, but there’s actually quite a bit of stamping. I stamped all the elements, other than the orange dots and black line.

I used four different Technique Tuesday stamp sets: Lots of Dots; Boy Flair by Ali Edwards; I Like You and Loving Words by Ali Edwards.

Can’t wait to see what the rest of the gang cooked up for the challenge:

And pssstttt… be sure to comment on their blogs. I hear some of them might be giving away a prize. 😉

And leave comment here, too. That’s because someone who does will get a small Technique Tuesday stamp surprise. Leave your comment by Feb. 28th, and I’ll pick the lucky winner after that.
