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

Hey Hey Hey handmade card by Teri //terisplace.wordpress.com

Ta-da! I played around with the new Boob Tubes dies that work perfectly with the coordinating Boob Tubes stamp set.

I wanted to do something different so I cut and stamped three TVs and stacked them up. I used Paper Smooches’ class Party Posse stamp set to the stamp the critters onto the screens.

Hey Hey Hey handmade card by Teri //terisplace.wordpress.com

To give the card a little dimension, I applied glossy accents the TV buttons, as well as on the critters eyes and noses. That gives them just the right amount of pop, in my opinion.

Well, that’s all I have today. I’ll be back again later, gators. Hope to see you again soon. (I hope.)

Video: Custom DIY Patterned Stickers for Planners

Hi all!

Just a quick little something today.

I’ve been having so much fun doing the planner thing lately. What a warm, friendly and inviting community the planner folks are. I am so inspired by the friendliness of everyone.

Put together this quick little video Sunday night on making your own custom patterned planner stickers for the fun of it. All you really need is a few stamps, labels and inks. It’s way easy.

Anyway, hope you enjoy the video.

By the way, you’ll find links to the stamp sets I used in the description field of the video on YouTube.

Simon Says Stamp: Cold Hands, Warm Heart Blog Hop

chwhhop

Hi guys!

Super excited to be invited by my friends over at Simon Says Stamp! to join them today for blog hop celebrating their new Cold Hands, Warm Heart release. If you haven’t checked it out yet, go. Go see. So, so many neat stamps, dies and stencils. All perfect for holiday projects.

I’m excited to share with you a few projects I made with some of the new products so let’s do this.

Please give it up for card #1.

SSS_PeaceonEarth_teri

I created this guy with the new Ring Frame dies. In full disclosure: I’m a bit of a circle addict (… wink!) so it’s totally right up my alley.I die-cut the ring from white and black cardstocks and then layered them together. Then I cut out the ring a couple more times (from orange, pink and blue cardstocks) and used the inner circles to decorate the rings up.

(By the way, the words and snowflake are from a couple stamps from SSS’s last release. The words are from Peace on Earth, while the snowflake is from Lots of Snowflakes.)

I couldn’t stop with just one circle-themed card. I had (just had) to make another with the Ring Frame dies.

Please meet card #2.

sss_circles1_teri

Ta-da!

I used somewhat the same technique as the first card. Instead  of filling all the circles with paper circles, I added a few sequins to a couple of them and left a few empty.

You might be wondering about that background. It’s not patterned paper. Nope. Sure isn’t. It was die-cut from white cardstock with the new Triangle Pattern plate die. I removed a few of the triangles to just add to the visual interest a little.

sss_circles2_teri

Kinda fun, huh?

Can you handle another card? Hope so because here is card #3.

I wanted to put something together on the simple + graphic side so that’s what I was going on here.

sss_brrr_teri

Everything stamped on this guy is from the Winter Warmth stamp set. I also used the coordinating dies to die-cut the scarves. I fussy cut a lot of stamped images and I sometimes forget what a time saver dies can be, especially when you are planning to make lots of projects. Die-cut + stamp + plaster on card = boom! You are good to go.

So, in addition to my cards, I also whipped up a couple pocket page cards. I am fairly passionate about pocket page memory keeping and like to make cards ahead of time so I can just kinda grab them when I am in a scrapbooking zone.

For both of these little cards, I used watercolor pencils to trace the tree patterns from the Four Trees Stencils. I spread the color with water and then used one of the stencils to trace the outer tree pattern This is where things sound all complicated, but you are going to have to trust me here. It totally wasn’t. I used the tracing a as a stitching pattern to stitch floss for the trees’ outlines.

sss_goodtidingstree_terisss_hearttree_teri

The words I used on both pocket page cards are from the  Peace on Earth stamp set.  I think they turned out pretty dang cute.

Alright so that’s what I have. You’re next stop on the hop is the Simon Says Stamp! blog. Ok. You’ve actually reached the final stop in the blog hop so technically I’m sending you back to the start. And the start is the Simon Says Stamp! blog! (Hey there, Simon friends!)( By the way, if you get lost at any point while hopping today, just hit the Simon blog for a complete list of who is hopping.)

Oh, and one more thing, be sure to comment on my post as well as the rest of the blog hop stops. That’s because  (…. you are going to love this…) there’s a Simon Says Stamp! Grab Bag Prize on each hop stop. Yep, even this one! Hooray!

grabbag

A complete winners list (of Grab Bag prize winners) will be posted on the Simon blog on Friday, October 10, 2014. Hot diggity!

So with that, thanks for swinging by today, friends! I hope to see you again soon!

MFT: Release Rewind

Hi guys!

I’m back with one more lot of cards created with some products from the September release from My Favorite Things.

Print

So many fun products in this release.

So let me show you what I have got for you today.

This is card #1.

Print

I stamped the background paper here with the Mini Chicken Wire Background stamp. I’m such a fan of that tone-on-tone look so I stamped it with Gumdrop Green ink on Gumdrop Green cardstock. One of the things I dig about MFT is how their products coordinate together easily. It makes crafting stress free.

I created the yellow rectangle by cutting one with one of the dies from the Pinking Edge Rectangle STAX Die-namics and then cutting into it a small rectangle. I thought it was fun and a little different from the same old, same old.

The fun is just getting started so say hello to card #2.

Print

Ta-da!

I wanted to just make a super flat, super mailable card so that’s what I did here. 😉

I folded the card from white cardstock. Then I inked up the Fine Check Background stamp with Lemon Drop ink and pressed the paper right onto it to transfer the pattern.

The sentiment was created by mixing and matching together dies and words from the Many Thanks Die-namics and the Thankful Thoughts stamp set.

Print

I think they look fun together.

This is card #3.

Print

I whipped out the Proof Positive Die-namics to create the background. I die-cut it from Blu Raspberry cardstock and then mounted it right onto white cardstock. Again, I used Mini Chicken Wire Background stamp a pattern. This time I did it on the rectangle cut with the Pinking Edge Rectangle STAX.

Those flowers? Can you believe I stamped them with a stamp from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set? I used Orange Fizz ink so they stood out a bit from the cardstock.

Print

And I used my (beloved) Sequins Die-namics to cut a sequin to place in the middle of each one.

And, finally, please give it up for card #4.

Print

I created the background here with the Proof Positive Cover-up Die-namics. If you look close you’ll see I put a strip of pink cardstock behind it as well as a strip of orange cardstock.

Print

Oh and that flower? I die-cut that guy with the Fresh Cut Flowers Die-namics.  Flowers always make for a nice accent!

Here’s a list of the MFT supplies I used on my projects today:

And be sure to hit the MFT Blog! You’ll find a list to all the MFT design team members who are sharing projects today as part of the Release Rewind.

Have a great day, y’all!

MFT Countdown: 7

Hello, hello!

We meet again! Super pumped to once again be with join the My Favorite Things crew for another release countdown.

I’ve got a lot of projects to share with you. Consider yourselves warned: September’s release is… AMAZING! So many good things! Start eating Ramen now. (I kid. I kid. Ok. Maybe not. Wink!)

NewReleaseCountdown_Day7

So let’s get on with the partying!

I had fun today, mostly working with the Blueprints 19 Die-namics, for this post.

If you new to MFT, you might not know a lot about their Blueprints series of dies. These dies are pretty cool. For each Blueprints set, you get a whole bunch of dies that you just have to use to cut pieces out for a card and assemble them together. They make cardmaking super easy!

The Blueprints 19 Die-namics (which officially debut on the 16th) have a label theme going on. Plus there’s lots of little dies (flower, star, button, rectangle and more) included in the set that you can throw into the mix.

So how about I should you a couple cards I made with the set?

Meet #1.

mft_910_thankyoukindly1_teri

Meet #2.

mft_910_thankyouflowers1_teri

mft_910_thankyouflowers2_teri

And meet #3.

mft_910_thankfullabel1_teri

mft_910_thankfullabel2_teri

The bases of these cards were created with the new Blueprints set. I did doll-up up the labels by stamping or stenciling  a pattern on them.

And you might be wondering about those big scripty words on card #1 and card #3? Yep. Those guys. They were die-cut with another Die-namics set you’ll get to meet later in the week.

And this is card #4.

mft_910_gratefultree1_teri

 

I once again used the Blueprints 19 Die-namics. (And again I used that same set of dies for the scripty word that you’ll get to meet later in the week.)

This time, I die-cut the leaves for the tree out of the label. The tree and leaves are from the Out on a Limb Die-namics die set by Lisa Johnson. Such a fun set!

To give the leaves a little extra kick, I scribble some color on them with a colored pencil and then spread the color around a little bit with a blending stump and Gamsol.

mft_910_gratefultree2_teri

Love that extra depth the extra color gives them.

Here’s a complete list of all the MFT supplies I used on these cards:

Ok, so that’s what I have! Be sure to hit the MFT blog to see who else from the MFT Design Team that  is sharing projects today.

Hope to see you again tomorrow!
