I’ve put together this little gem, featuring the new So Fairy Cute stamps and dies.

I think the bear is one of the cutest big bear stamps I’ve seen in awhile. I just love those little wings!
I love that the bear could be a cute whimsical fairy…. or even been used at a tooth fairy.
Rather than going all “tooth fairy” here, I wanted to create a simple happy scene. Truthfully, it wasn’t that simple with all the coloring, but whatever. 😉
To give a little pop to the background, I sponged some blue ink onto the card, stamped a few stars and added a few dots (randomly) with Glossy Accents.

Kinda hard to tell but I also added just a pinch of glitter to the bear’s crown. It gives it just the right amount of sparkle.

Alright! That’s what I got for you today.

Are you a Paper Smooches fan? Don’t forget to get out the monthly challenge to show off what you are doing with Paper Smooches’ stamps and dies. The challenge is always on the PS blog.

A couple Paper Smooches cards

Hi, guys!

I’m here today with a couple cards recently shared over on the blog for Paper Smooches. I’ve had so much fun lately going though my stash of Paper Smooches stamps and dies and creating a few cards every month. Sometimes, it’s easy to get caught in the “new, new, new” thing and forget about the good stuff you’ve discovered along the way.

teriproject3

Created this first little one with a couple different stamps (and dies):Fruitastic stamps; Fruit Icons dies; Hot Concoctions stamps; Sentiment Sampler stamps; and Kindness Sampler stamps.

I really wanted this card to be unique so I paired together several different sentiments. I think the end result is pretty nice. All words I’d love to say to some of my sweet, sweet friends.

This second card really was the result of me goofing around and pulling two stamp sets (Hot Concoctions and Feathered Friends) randomly and seeing if I could make something with them. After a lot of messing around (and dreaming up some ideas), this is what I ended up with. Fun stuff!

Alright! That’s it for me. I’ll be back later, gators. Thanks for stopping on by.

Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – 5

Coffee-Lovers-Blog-Hop-10

Hello again, friends!

I’m still on a coffee/cocoa card kick, thanks to the Fall | Winter Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop. (Thanks, guys, for inspiring me to use the stuff in my crafty stash of goods!)

Today’s card features the Mug Hugs stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps. It’s such a cute set of stamps.

CupofCheerCard1-teir

I simply stamped the cup twice on white cardstock and stamped a snowflake on each cup. I colored them in with markers and then fussy cut them out.

I die-cut the rounded rectangle with a die from My Favorite Things. I sponged some ink onto it and stamped the words, hearts and snowflakes onto it. I added a little color with markers and then popped some holes in the panel with the small circle punch on Crop-a-Dile tool.CupofCheerCard2-teir

I put some patterned paper on the card and added the rectangle. And then…. magic happened again! I squirted some drops of Glossy Accents right over the holes. When it dried, I ended up with a pretty cool look!

Alright. That’s it for today.

Don’t forget to check out the hop (and, maybe, link up some cards of your own). So many fun projects to see!

Technique Tuesday Dec. Countdown – Day 2

Hi, friends!

Me again. I’m back, sharing a couple more cards made with some new products that will debut Dec. 1st on the Technique Tuesday website.

Today’s cards were made with the new Joyous Juniper stamp set from their Greenhouse Society.

FindBeautyJuniperPurpleClose-teri

This new stamp set is lovely. It comes with a branch, an extra berry to make the branch bigger and a couple sayings

For this card, I stamped the branch, colored it in with markers and then added some glitzy by putting on some glitter glue.FindBeautyJuniperPurple-teri

Turned out kinda fun!

I again used the branch on this second card. This time, I went for more blue than purple berries so I used a softer color scheme. Again, I wanted there to be a little glitz so I added some glitter glue to the edges of the berries.

WarmWishesJuniperCardClose-teri

I also used colored pencils to add a little extra dark highlights to the Juniper branch after I did the initial coloring with markers.

WarmWishesJuniperCard-teri

It turned out pretty fun, I think.

You’ll find all the new Technique Tuesday products here on the 1st. And you’ll find a list of all the TT design team members hopping today on their blog.

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

Hi, friends!

Technique Tuesday’s getting ready to release some new products on Dec. 1st, and I’m happy today to share with you a card made with some of the new goods.

gnawsomebeavercard-teri

Created this guy with the new Beau & Beatrice Beaver stamp set (and coordinating dies) from their collection of Animal House stamps and dies. They are such cute stamps…. and perfect in Oregon, where the beaver is the mascot of Oregon State. 😉 (Go, Beavs! Wink!)

gnawsomebeavercard-2-teri

This set has some cute elements for making stamped woodland scenes with as the snail, log and branch are from the set too. Super cute.

Anyhoo! That’s all I have for you.

Don’t forget to hit the Technique Tuesday website here on Dec. 1st to see all the new products. Plus don’t forget to stop by the Technique Tuesday blog for links today to all the design team members sharing projects. There’s lots of cool stuff to see seen!

A Wreath Card and Tag

Hi, friends!

Looking for a little Christmas card and gift tag inspiration? I’m up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today, sharing a couple new projects. Here’s a little peek at the goods.

TeriAnderson-WreathCardAndMatchingGiftTag-1

I’ll give you the scoop on how I made the little wreaths. Yes, they might look simple but, wow, they took quite a few steps.

Plus I’ll tell you how I used some of the awesome products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to really make the wreaths pop off the card and tag. Talk about time savers!

I’d be tickled if you’d check the post out. Thanks for stopping by, friends. I’ll be back later in the week!

 

25 Days of Christmas Tags – Jillibean Soup

44525104_10213456480951907_1009268704120143872_n

Hi, friends!

I’m thrilled today to share a couple tags inspired by Tracey McNeeley’s 8th annual 25 Days of Christmas Tags.

Today, Tracey and friends are sharing tags that feature products from Jillibean Soup.

I’m contributing two tags for today’s fun. Both of my tags were created with Jillibean Soup’s Holiday Shape Shakers collection.

25Tags2018-Jillibean3-teri

This little tag was created with a couple of their new stamp and die sets: Llama Holiday and Be Tacky. I gotta tell you that little llama just slays me. Such an adorable little dude to use on holiday gift tags…. and Christmas cards, too. 25Tags2018-Jillibean4-teri

This next little tag uses the Merry & Bright stamps and dies to do the trees , plus the Llama Holiday and Loads of Cheer stamps and dies to the sentiment.25Tags2018-Jillibean1-teri25Tags2018-Jillibean2-teri

One thing I feel the urge to say is how much I enjoyed mixing and matching the stamps and dies from Jillibean’s Holiday Shakers collection together. They all are really fun to mix and match…. and I’ve always had a soft spot for doing that when I craft.

Alrighty. That’s what I have. Be sure to stop by Tracey’s blog for tons more holiday tag inspiration. So, so, so many great ideas to be had. So much inspiration!

Alright! That’s it for now. I’ll be back later, gators. Thanks for be-bopping on by. It’s a total treat when you do.
