Today’s card (7-17)

Hi, friends!

Another day. Another stamped card. Let me show you what I got!

I had a “billy” good time making this guy! Ha. I kill me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sooooo. I created this guy with the Billy Silly Goats stamp set from Ink Blot Shop (also available on Simon Says Stamp!).

This card? Yeah, it’s a pretty straight forward card when it comes to card. I stamped the little scene and words with the set right onto the white panel. I then colored everything in with good old markers.

Then I stamped the goat on more time on cardstock. I cut him out with my scissors and then the magic happened. What’s that, you ask? Well, my friends, I adhered him to the card with an Action Wobbler! If you haven’t seen the wobblers in the flesh, know this: they are pretty much the best thing ever. You can adhere them to an image (or die-cut), place them on your cardย  and then your image (or die-cut) wobblers. Think of it as something kinda like a bobblehead… in card form. It’s awesome.

Alrighty! That’s it for now. Be back later. Thank you for stopping by yet again.

Today’s card (7-15)

Hi, friends!

Back again… yet again… with another stamped card to share with you.

Just a quick post today. So meet today’s card.

I had used the Critter Campout Stamps from Sunny Studio Stamps recently for another card. I had stamped a few too many critters for that card and had the extras still sitting on my desk. Throwing them out? Yeah. Could have. But figured it would be more fun putting them on card… and so I did.

It’s a little hard to tell but I embellished the little guys by selectively adding some dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops and a white gel pen. It’s a subtle thing to do, but I think it really helps make images pop more off cards and stuff. Plus it doesn’t add a lot of bulk so, hello, affordable sending in the mail. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Alright. That’s it for me for now. Told you this would be a quick post. I’ll be back later, friends. Thanks for stopping by.

 

Technique Tuesday Release Day!

New-Release-Countdown-Release-Day

Hi, guys!

It’s Release Day at Technique Tuesday.ย  I’m here to show you a couple new projects today that feature the new Bubbles on the Border die, plus some of the other new stamps.

So let’s do this. Meet card no. 1.

I used the border die to add the bubbly border to the top of my card. And then I took a few of the circles to add “bubbles” to my scene, which was created with the new Simon & Sandy Seahorse stamp set and dies.

You’ll see I also added a few clear bubbles to the scene. Added those bad boys with Glossy Accents. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And meet card no. 2.

For this one, I created a bubbly background of sorts by cutting the border out of three pieces of cardstock and then layering them together. It’s so not how TT intended to use these dies, but I’m one who likes to go against the grain sometimes when it comes to paper craft stuff. I think it turned out pretty fun actually.

Alright! So that’s what I have for you. Be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog to see who else from the design team is sharing projects today. And be sure to visit the Technique Tuesday website to see all the new goods.

Thanks for stopping by!

 

Today’s card (6-22)

Hi, friends!

Back again with another stamped card to share with you. Today’s card is a birthday one.

A birthday card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

My grandma’s birthday is this weekend so I whipped up this guy for her. The dog and icons are from the Party Pups stamp setย (and coordinating dies) from Sunny Studio Stamps.

Lean in close, friends. A little secret about this card. I had planned to use a different dog in the set for my card. The intended dog? A fluffy Pomeranian that reminds me of my Marley and whose name I always sign with cards to my grandma. However my coloring looked awful so I went with this little dog instead as I had colored at the same time and he looked pretty good. Good thing my grandma won’t mind that it’s not a Pom. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย ย birthdaypuppykissescard2-teri

To give the little dog a little extra personality, I added a party hat and cupcake. What dog doesn’t look great in a party hat? Well, that is all dogs that will actually allow themselves to wear party hats. ๐Ÿ˜‰ (For the record, Marley typically knocks off any hats I put on it, but I continue to try. Wink!)

The papers are just an assortment of scraps from my box of scraps. The colors aren’t exactly all the same, butย  I think it’s OK sometimes to just give yourself permission to run with it and say, “I don’t need to be perfect today. My card does not need to be perfect today.”ย  I mean, there are no card police officers out there, at least last time I checked there were not.

Alright, that’s what I got for you. I’ll be back again later, gators. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.

Hero Arts & Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog Hop

Hi, friends!

Super geeked to be hopping today with the fun folks from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Hero Arts. You should have arrived here from the blog of Shelleye McDaniel. (Next stop after this one is Terri Burson!)

I’ve got 2 cards to share with you today.

Meet card no. 1.

TeriAnderson-WaffleLot-1

I had a lot of fun making this card with the Food Puns stamps from Hero Arts. I made the heart waffles by stamping them on cardstock and coloring them in with markers. I fussy cut them out with scissors and then adhere them to my card with 3D Foam Squares Regular Size from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I love the pop the the squares give.

And meet card no. 2.

Hey Hot Stuff stamped card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

I used the It’s Fiesta Time stamp set from Hero Arts to stamp the dog, bottle, bones and sentiment for this card. Once again, I stamped on white cardstock and then colored things in with markers. Again, I did some fancy fussy cutting.

To give the card a little sparkle, I adhered 3D Foam Circles White Mix onto the card. I removed the backing paper on top and rubbed red foil (from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) onto the sticky surface. It’s kinda like magic, giving the circles a foil-y finish!

By the way, to hold the papers to both cards, I used E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser. It’s a great tool!

Today’s card (6-17)

Hi, gang!

It’s graduation season, and I was inspired to sit down the other night and make a few cards for some of the graduates I know.

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

This is just a simple little card. I really wanted to let the stamps from the Smart Cookie set (from Lawn Fawn) take center stage. The cookie is just so cute. And it’s cool the stamp set has faces for a male and a female! I couldn’t pick one so I decided just to make a boy cookie and girl cookie.

SmartCookie2-teri

I have been on quite a fussy cutting kick lately, but I had the dies for this set so I used them. (Yay!)

I also added a few stamped stars to my design. It felt like it just needed something. (The stars are from Lawn Fawn’s Lovable Legends stamp set.)

Anyway, I hope the graduate who gets this card likes it. It was fun to make it.

Alright! That’s it for today. Be back later.

A Birthday Card for a Guy (6-16)

Hi, all!

Back again with another card to share with you.

Saw the Lawnfawnatics were having a “Cards for Guys” Challenge and was totally inspired to play so meet today’s card.

A stamped birthday card by Teri | Terisplace.wordpress.com

I created this card mostly with the Screen Time stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I also pulled in a few images (the stars and party hat) from the Lovable Legends set.

It’s a pretty basic card. I stamped most of the images on cardstock, colored them in with markers and then fussy cut them with my scissors.

For the stars, I just stamped them onto my patterned paper background and then added a hair or so of color with a blue marker. Subtle but does the trick. I also added a few dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops. I just love those things.

And that’s about it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hope you like the card. I’ll be back again soon. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
