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.

Today’s card (5-7)

Hi, guys!

Here again with a card to share.

A stamped card by Teri for Paper Smooches || Terisplace.wordpress.com

Made this one a bit ago for Paper Smooches.

I’m a fan of mixing and matching stamps from way back so that’s what I did here. I mixed and matched together a couple stamps from a couple different stamp sets: Huge Hugs and Sugar Rush (and the coordinating dies for both sets).

I think they worked well together to make a cute little scene.

And if you have been following the story of Fiona the Hippo at the Cincinnatti Zoo, this card might be a little bit inspired by Fiona. I mean, she’s just so cute… and she’s a hippo.  (Wink.)

All the patterned papers in the background are once again from my box of scraps. I talk about that box a lot here on my blog-a-roo. Let me tell you a secret: It’s just a little shoebox sized box that I keep near my desk. Over the years, my collection of paper scraps has been awfully big at times. It was too much. So I purged all those tiny pieces of papers awhile back and got a shoebox and told myself that was it. If the scraps of paper don’t fit in it, they gotta go. The smaller size, at least, has helped keep things manageable.

Alright! That’s it for now. Be back later, friends.

Technique Tuesday Release Day

New-Release-Countdown-Release-Day

Hi, guys!

It’s Release Day at Technique Tuesday, and I’ve got a new card created with new stuff to share with you. (<—-Say that new thing ten times fast.)

Meet today’s card.

Created this bad boy with a couple new products from Technique Tuesday, the Cool Tools dies and the What a Guy stamp set. (You’ll see them and all the other new goods here.)

I cut the tools from white cardstock and then used my markers to add color to them. And then I assembled them together for the card.

I created my background for the card with various scraps of patterned paper from my shoebox of scraps.

The sentiment? It hails from the What a Guy stamp set. I think any old sentiment that is guy-worthy would work with this card. (Or maybe a girl-sentiment would work for a tool loving DIY girl!)

Alright! That’s what I have. Be sure to check out the Technique Tuesday blog for links to all the other Design Team members sharing projects created with the new goods today. So much good stuff!

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.
