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!

Alright! Enough with the hop talk. Let me share with you the card I made for the hop! On your mark. Get set. And go!

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

Created this guy with the brand new Vespa die! It’s such a fun die. I die-cut the bike twice from white cardstock. I used markers to color the pieces on the first die-cut, not worrying if I went onto the lines. Then I removed the pieces from the second die-cut and adhere the white “frame” on top. It’s a pretty fun way to use intricate dies! TeriVespaDie-close

The sentiments are all from the previously released Hello Sampler stamp set. I really just took a bunch of words and phrases from the set and paired them together until they looks like a fun phrase for the card.

Sure looking forward to sending this card to a friend!

Thanks again, friends, for stopping by and checking out the hop. It’s always a pleasure when you do stop by!

See you again soon!

2019 Spring | Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – 2

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

Hi, guys!

Sneaking in, under the wire, with just one more card for the Spring | Summer 2019 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

A stamped coffee card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

Just having fun, playing around, with this card. The cups were created with the new Daddy Yo 2 stamp set (and Daddy Yo Icons dies) from Paper Smooches. The stamp set is a guy-themed set, but it’s possible with the elements in it to make girl coffee cup. 🙂

My go-to colors for a “girl” coffee cup are pink and red, but I decided to throw caution to the wind this time and make a purple cup. It’s a color I don’t often color with.

Oh, and just for kicks, I decided to make the girl cup’s glasses seem a little more real by adding a few small drops of Glossy Accents to the lenses.  Just a fun little touch.

The words are from the Dude Sampler stamp set, also from Paper Smooches.

Ok! That’s it for me today. Thank you for stopping by. Once again, before to check out the hop. So many amazing projects. Great job, everybody!

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

Created this bad boy with the new Daddy Yo 2 stamp set ad Daddy Yo 2 Icons dies. (I also used the Fab Frames dies from last months’ release.)

Nothing really super fancy to share about this card other than I did lots and lots of coloring. 🙂

I thought this card might be a good one to give a favorite male family member or a good male friend.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and the hop! I’ll be back again later. Thanks for stopping by!

Today’s card (4-12)

Hi, everyone!

Dropping by today to share a card created with one of Paper Smooches’ new crafting dies. I’m just so excited to send this card to one of my stamping friends.

A handmade "Missing You" card by Teri | Created with Paper Smooches stamps & dies

The flowers were created with the new Stemmed Rose Dies. Rather than doing a bunch of paper piecing and all, I cut them from white cardstock and then used my markers to add a little color to them. It is kind of a tedious task with thin, intricate dies, but I think the results are almost always stunning.

TeriStemmedRoseDiesCLOSE

Now, this card has a fun little twist. The die set comes with a mat die. Rather than matting the flowers onto mats, I used the mat die to cut a window out out of the front of the card. I placed one of the flowers inside the card, right so you could see it through the window.

TeriStemmedRoseDiesClose2

One thing I did on the front of the card, to make the flowers stand out on it, was I opened it and sponging a little blue ink onto it. I did it softly, over and over in a circle. I also added a sentiment (perfect for my stamping friend) from the Fun & Flirty stamp set.

To finish things off, I added couple sequins. They are always a nice, fairly flat, way of finishing a card.

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

PS. Don’t miss this post I shared over the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog recently! It shows a fun way to use foil to make a wedding card!

Alright, enough hop talk. Let’s get on with the card.

A handmade card featuring stamps and dies from Paper Smooches

Created this little guy with the new Mini Flowers Dies. All the flowers were made by mixing and matching the little dies together. No real rhyme or reason on my part… just being random for the fun of it. 🙂

The vase was cut with the mat die from the new Stemmed Rose Dies. I actually cut off the flower part and kinda just ran with it. I think the card is cute but modern… or modern but cute… by pairing the dies together.

The words are from the previously released Fun & Flirty stamp set. It’s such a fun set of sentiments that are perfect to send to your card making buddies.

So enough hop talk. Let me show you what I’ve got.

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

TeriProject2

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.
extra2

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.

Thanks so very much for joining us.  

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.

teriproject4

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.
