A stamped snowman and fox card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

This was such a fun card to make! I created the background by cutting several snowflakes with the new Huge Snowflakes dies. I lightly (very, very, very lightly) sponged sponged some black ink where I was going to place the large snowflakes and then added them to it. (Side note: I actually cut all the snowflakes from white cardstock and then added color with ink to some of them before I got to creating. Could have saved time by just cutting them from colored cardstock, but I decided not to.)

Once I added the big snowflakes, I added a few small ones, as well as a few white Nuvo Crystal Dots.

TeriHugeSnowflakesDies-2

The snowman and fox were stamped and die-cut with the new Winter Greetings stamps and Winter Greetings Icons dies. I colored them in with good ol’ alcohol ink markers. I also added a stamped sentiment to a banner cut with the Vanilla Verbiage Icons dies. For good measure, I sponged a little black ink along the edges of the banner. Anyway, I think it turned out pretty cute. Hope you like it.

By the way, do you like playing with Paper Smooches stamps, dies and stencils? Let’s see what you are making! Paper Smooches has a challenge every month on the the PS blog! Be sure to check it out!

Snowman Holiday Tags

25DaysTagsRedChristmas

Hi, everyone!

Here today with a couple holiday tags. These two tags were inspired by the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event from Tracey McNeely!

On Day 7, there were some cute holiday scene created with the Feeling Frosty stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps. Love the stamp set and was inspired to make a few scenes of my own on tags.

Please give it up for tag no. 1.

A Christmas Tag by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

Pretty much every image on this tag was stamped with the Feeling Frosty stamp set. It’s just so cute! I added a little color to the images with markers. Rather than stressing out over the markers’ numbers, I just randomly pulled light and dark markers and ran with it. Easy peasy!

To add to the feel of the snowy scene, added some mini white pompoms to the skies. I love the pop they add.

And meet tag no. 2.

snowmansnowyhugstags-teri-2

I decided to things a little different for this one by added the coffee cups to the snowmen’s hands. I wanted it to look like they were chilling, hanging out and talking. Wink. 😉

Again, I colored the images in with markers and then embellished the scene by adding some white pompoms to the sky. Love that look!

Alright! That I have for you today. Be sure to check out Tracey’s blog to see the latest tags on this fun challenge. Be back again later, friends.

A stamped friendship card by Teri | terisplace,wordpress,com

I created this card using several new products: the Thinking of You die; the Sunflower die; and the Savvy Stencil. I also used the “friend” word from the Delightful Greetings stamp set.

I added the patterns the back of the card with a little ink and the stencil. To create the flower, I die-cut it from white cardstock. I then used a bunch of markers to add color to it. To borrow a phrase from my friend, Kathy, I “color plucked” from my basket of markers, meaning I just grabbed Copic markers that looked good rather than follow any numeric formula for color blending.TeriThinkingofYouDie-2

To give the sentiment a little extra pop, I used white Nuvo Crystal Drops to add a few dots to the words. I like the subtle texture.

Alright! That is it for me. Thanks so much for taking part in today’s hop… and leaving your kinds words! It’s always such a treat!

A Harry Potter Boba Tea card made by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

I had a super strong desire to create a Harry Potter-inspired card so I stamped the glassed on the Boba Tea cup (all from the Caffeinated stamp set). Then I used a black pen to draw a mark like Harry’s onto the top of the glass.

I didn’t have a wand stamp, but there are some super cute stars in the So Fairy Cute stamp set. I stamped a whole bunch of those to add the “magical” feeling of the card.

TeriCaffeinatedTwoStampSet-CLOSE.jpg

The sentiment was created by pairing the “bobalicious” word from the Caffeinated Two stamp set with the “you are” from one of the stamps in the Caffeinated set.

Anyway, thought it turned out pretty fun! Looking forward to sending this card to one of my friends.

Alright! That’s it for today. Thanks again, friends, for stopping by. I always appreciate your kind words. See you again real soon.

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

I had a blast creating the cactus plant for this card with the new Cacti dies. These dies allow you make all kinds of cactus.

I’m not from a cactus-friendly place so be kind to any creative liberties take with this cactus. (Wink!) In card land, everything is possible, right?

TeriCactiDie-2

I created the custom sentiment for the card by pairing together words from two stamp sets – Kindness Sampler and Delightful Greetings. The little heart? It, too, is from Delightful Greetings. It just… appropriate… for this card.

The background for this card was creating by mixing together a bunch of paper scraps from my never-ending bin of scraps. (Can you relate?)

Alright! That’s it for this card.

But got a question for you. Do you have a pile of Paper Smooches stamps and dies? Don’t forget there’s a chance for you share what you are making with them. Paper Smooches offers a fun challenge every month. Watch the blog for details. Kim LOVES and I MEAN LOVES seeing what you are creating! 

Thanks so very much for checking out the hop today! I appreciate all your kinds words! See you again soon.  

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.)

A rainbow card created by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

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.

A friendship card by Teri | created with Paper Smooches stamps

I had so much fun making this card! Rainbows and patterns = lots and lots of love!

Created the background of the card by using a few different stamps from the new Patternology stamp set. It is fun to make one big pattern with one of the stamps, but it is also fun to mix and match the different patterns together.  I also added a heart cut with the heart from the new Health dies.

TeriInvertedGreetingsStampSet-closeI wanted to send this card to one of my friends. I hate really serious cards so I paired together some words from the new Inverted Greetings set and the previously released Delightful Greetings stamp set. I sure dig the label style of the Inverted Greetings words! 

Alrighty! That is it for now, friends. I’ll be back again later. Thanks again for stopping by my blog-a-roo! It’s always a pleasure to see your sweet comments. Thank you!

Spring 2019 | Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – 1

http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/2019/05/2019-spring-summer-coffee-lovers-blog-hop-2/

Hi, guys!

Just squeaking in a last minute card in honor of the latest Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

I’ve been busy with life stuff so haven’t had much time to craft during the hop this time. Such a bum dog. The hop always inspires me to get to my craft table… and play, play, play! But, at least, I’ve got one card for the hop, even if it is the last day! 😉

A stamped card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

Created this little card with the new Tea-riffic stamp set from The Letter Lingo. Such a darling little set. Rather than going all coffee like for this one (because the genius of the set is can be used to make coffee or TEA cards), I decided to make a tea-themed card.CLP_CupofTea2_teri

Did a little “old school” masking so the girl would look like she was peeking around the cup.

Totally last minute decision to add the sentiment to the cup. Originally, I’d been planning to stamp it elsewhere but saw it would fit perfectly on it and ran with it.

Alright! That’s it for me. I’ll be back again later, gators. Thanks for stopping by! And don’t forget to check out the hop! There are so many lovely projects linked up to it!

World Card Making Day Blog Hop w/ Technique Tuesday

World-Card-Making-Da-2018-NBlog-Hop-Banner

Hi, everyone!

Happy World Card Making Day! I’m delighted to be joining the Technique Tuesday Design Team with some very special guests in blog hopping today.

If you’ve been hopping along, you should have arrived here from the blog of Ana Anderson. If you are just getting started hopping, welcome to the hop! The next stop on the hop is the blog of Latisha Yoast.

We’re celebrating the big day by sharing some cards created with the brand new You’re Owlsome stamp set that TT just released for WCMD. You can get the stamp set for free through Sunday with a $30 or more purchase on the Technique Tuesday website. Just pick $30 or more products on their website, then add the stamp set to your cart and enter coupon code WCMD18 at check-out which will make the stamp set free.

World-Card-Making-Da-2018-NL-SM-INSTRUCTIONS-fb

I’ve got one card to share with you today. It’s a little on the artsy side.

OwlsomeInkedOwlCard-teri

I created the multi-colored owl (and pink hearts) by creating a background paper with Distress Oxide Inks and water and then simply stamping and die-cutting them with the matching dies. I think it’s a cool look and a fun way to add color without actually using markers and pencils like we often tell ourselves we have to do.

The background on my card was created with Washi tape and good ol’ black cardstock. For fun, I took a paint brush and flicked on splotches of diluted white paint.

OwlsomeInkedOwlCardClose-teri

Turned out pretty good, I think.

Alright! Be sure comment as you hop today as Technique Tuesday will be picking one person to give a gift certificate to. The lucky person will be selected at random from one of the hop stops. The winner will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog.

And here’s the compete list of hoppers. Don’t forget that Latisha is the next stop. She’d love for you to visit.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by, friends.
