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.

Today’s card… no, layout (5-4)

Hi guys!

Sharing a layout, not a card, I created with Sassy Camera, a new stamp set I designed for Technique Tuesday that comes out today in honor of National Scrapbook Day.

First, before I talk about the layout, let me give A HUGE thank you to Heather Hoffman, who kindly provided the picture I used on this layout. It’s such a fun picture that was taken while she and her friends were at Creativation this year.  (Thank you, guys.)

So about the layout. I stamped all the phrases, cameras and photo frames with the stamp set. Oh, and the stars too! I also used the coordinating dies, which went on sale today too.

The layout’s background was created by just mixing together a bunch of patterned paper scraps with cardstock, plus some washi tape.  You’ll see that washi tape in the top corner of the picture. There were also a few dots added to the layout with Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Oh and that text on the picture? I went old school, pulling out letters from my stash of letter stickers and label tape.

If you think you might like to own the Sassy Camera stamp set, it’s a good weekend to snatch it up. You can get it for free through Sunday when you make a $30 or more purchase through TT’s website. This graphic has the scoop on how to get the set for free.

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.

A handmade card by Teri || terisplace.wordpress.com

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 1

New-Release-Countdown-Day-1

Hi, guys!

Technique Tuesday’s next release happens on May 1st so the design team is joining the countdown fun in sharing some projects made with some of the new goods today.

I’m excited to share with you something I made with the new What a Guy stamps and dies.

Rather than making a card, I made this simple little layout. What-A-Guy-Tools-Layout-Teri-A-Technique-Tuesday

The little guy? He’s the nephew of my friend, Tam, who provided the picture for me to use. (The layout will go to her sister, who I hope likes it.)

All the tools were stamped with the stamp set and then colored in with markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

The words on the label are also from the What a Guy stamp set. I did added my own little personal touch to the stamped words by adding a couple dots with a white pen to them. With that font, I think that looks pretty cool!

The label? You might be wondering about it. It’s from the previously released Retro Labels dies. It’s a good set of dies that I used often.

Alright! That’s all I have for you today. Be sure to check out Technique Tuesday’s New Release page on May 1st. That’s when all the new products will be there.

Also, swing by the Technique Tuesday blog for links to all the design team members sharing projects today.

Be back again tomorrow! Hope to see you then!
