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

So I used a couple new dies to make this card – the Religious Words 2 dies and the Dove die.

All the hearts and crosses (and word) were cut with the Religious 2 Words dies, while the dove was cut with the Dove die. I know, you are like, “Duh, Teri. Duh.” Wink.

I cut each piece from watercolor paper and then added a little watercolor paint on top. I wanted a distressed look so I splattered on some water drops. To speed up the drying process, I pulled out my old friend, my trusty dusty heat gun. Love that thing still after all these years. 😉

So that’s what I have for you. I’ll be back later. Imagine that in a Terminator-style voice. Wink!

Have fun hopping today! I appreciate you stopping by.

Today’s card (6-8)

Hey kids!

Another day. Another card.

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

Just a little something in the key of Paper Smooches to share today. 😉

This one was over on their blog this week.

Created the little bear with the help of the Kind Bear die and two wiggle eyes that were just “dying” to be used. 😉 The little bear? So. Darn. Cute. If you have made cards and scrapbook pages for a long time, you are probably familiar with paper piecing. Remember the hours spent doing that stuff? This die is kind of a fun twist on paper piecing. You cut the die a couple times and then piece all the pieces together to make the cute little bear.

The sentiment? Yep. It’s from Paper Smooches too. It hails from the Kindness Sampler stamp set.

The paper? Well, it was a teeny tiny old sliver of a piece tucked into my scrap basket. I think (key word) it old stuff from Bazzill. Such happy colors and all.

Alright, friends. I got nothing else for you today. Hope you are a having a good one today. Be back again soon.

Alright, enough hop talk. Let’s get on with the card-a-roo!

A handmade card by Teri for Paper Smooches // terisplace.wordpress.comMade this guy with the brand new Silhouette Flowers dies. They are the bomb. Plus, the sentiment is from a new set, too. It’s the Kindness Sampler set, which is just plain packed with great phrases.

Silhouette-Flowers-Dies-Close-Teri-Paper-SmoochesTo make the little blooms (and dragonfly), I die-cut them from good ol’ white cardstock and then sponged on good ol’ water-based dye ink. You know, nothing fancy. I didn’t use Distress Ink, Oxide Ink or anything super fancy. Just plain old dye ink… that I’ve had in my stash for years. Ages, really. 😉 Then I splattered the blooms with water. I was liberal with the splattering. Patted the blooms (mostly) dry with a paper towel. Then to speed the final drying, I did blow my heat gun on them for maybe half a minute to a minute… because I wanted them on my card and I wanted them on my card… NOW. Wink.

A handmade card by Teri for Paper Smooches // terisplace.wordpress.comThe end result was… well… is… pretty fun, huh?

Ok, friends… that’s all I have for you today. Happy blog hoppity hopping, friends. See you again soon! (Thanks, as always, for stopping by.)

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

Created this guy with a couple new Paper Smooches’ products – the New Beginnings 2 stamp set & the Grad Cap dies and the Rose Frame dies. The little frame? That’s from the Rose Frame dies.

I wanted to do something a little more graphic inspired to go with the sentiment so I cut several tassels from cardstock (with the Grad Cap dies) to make that little tassels garland of sorts. The thing about tassels? Well, they are cool for grad stuff, but really they are cool celebrating in general too!

To make the tassles pop, I added some dots with some Nuvo Crystal Dots stuff. Kinda fun, right? I think so!

Well, that’s what I have for you today. Thanks, as always, for stopping by! Your kind words are always appreciated! Happy blog hopping!

I created this guy using a couple of Paper Smooches’ new products: Pineapple 1 dies, Pineapple 2 dies and the Pineapple Crush 2 stamp set.

The dies for Pineapple 1 and Pineapple 2 aren’t an exact match but I thought they sure looked fun when mixed together.

Alright! That’s what I have. I’ll be back again later, gators. Thanks, as always, for stopping by!

A handmade card for Paper Smooches by Teri // Terisplace.wordpress.com

Ta-da! Had some fun with this little croacker. (Hee hee, I couldn’t resist.)

I used a couple new Paper Smooches products – the Critter Card Puns stamp set and the Bear Frog Card Dies. Made the little froggy with the dies. To make those little cheeks (because you know, I am all about cute), I applied some chalk to the card and then little dabs of white Nuvo Crystal Drops.

The sentiment was stamped entirely with the stamp set. I used a little red pen to draw the editing mark. Trying to be funny there.  Wink

A handmade card for Paper Smooches by Teri // Terisplace.wordpress.comAlright, guys! That is all I have for you today. Be back again soon. Thanks, as always, for swinging by.

Today’s card (2-20)

Hey all!

Me again. Here with a card to share today.

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

Made this one with the new Sweets dies from Paper Smooches, as well as their Celebrate word die and Chit Chat stamp set.

To make the little candies, I just randomly cut candy pieces from cardstock and patterned paper scraps. To give some of them a little bit of glitz, I added hearts topped with glitter glue. Such a simple thing but perfect for giving things pop-a-roo.

Alright. Not much more to say so this is a short and sweet post. That’s good sometimes, right?  I’ll be back again later. Thanks for stopping by, guys. See you again soon.
