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. 😉

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.

Today’s card (7-5)

Hi, gang!

Me again! Another day. Another card.

Today’s card is the result of me being in a Summertime kinda mood. 🙂

Thinking about my list of things to do over the next few weeks (eek!), a break sounds really cool. Camping under the stars, in fact, sounds kinda dreamy right now. CampfireBearCard2-teri

I created the blue background by sponging some Distress Oxide ink onto cardstock and then spritzing it heavily with water. I used my heat gun to speed up the drying process. The I stamped a few stars onto it and added a little color to some of them with a white pen.

The bear, words, stars and tent are all from the Critter Campout stamp set from Sunny Sunny Studio Stamps. It, as in the stamp set, recently came to live with me so it needed a workout and all too. (Wink!)

To make the scene pop out a bit against the patterned paper, I whipped out my old friend, my bottle of white Nuvo Crystal Drops and added some dots around the largest circle. It’s subtle, but I think it works.

Alright. That’s it for now. Be back later, friends. Thanks for stopping by.

Today’s card (7-2)

Hi, friend-a-roos!

Happy Monday to you! I’m back with another stamped card to share with you…. just “fur” fun. A stamped dog card by Teri | terisplace.wordpress.com

Get it? Hehe! Couldn’t resist.

I just couldn’t help myself with making another dog card… just for the fun of it. I used a couple dog-themed stamp sets from Sunny Studio Stamps, Party Pups and Devoted Doggies, for this one. These stamp sets are great because they are cool to use on their own, but they are also great to use together.

I colored the three dogs independently of each other. Just a happy coincidence that I used shades of gray for each one. I fussy cut them out. (Yep, I’m old school.) And then I adhered them on the card. I thought about being greedy and putting each on dog on his card, but they looked so cute together so I ran with it.

The sentiment isn’t really curved. I just bent the stamp as I placed it on my block. After I stamped it on my card, I stamped a paw print on each side.  I thought it, well, just plain looked cute.

Anyhoo, that is what I have today. I’ll be back again later, gators. See you again soon. Thank you, as always, for stopping by!
