Birthday Card Challenge No. 3

Hi, guys!

Back again. Another day. Another card for the Birthday Card challenge with Ashley.

Give it up for today’s card.

A stamped card by Teri //

Just having fun today, playing with this llama image from Technique Tuesday’s Lorenzo the Llama stamp set  (and dies). He humors me to no end. 🙂

Wanted to play it simple by creating a little scene with a background, created with a Cloud stencil from My Favorite Things. Then I added some “grass” by plopping a strip of cardstock at the bottom.


The garland is from the stamp set too. I simply stamped it right onto the inked background, colored it in and added a little bit of Nuvo Crystal Drops to it to give it some dimension.

The sentiment is from the stamp set too.

Alright! That’s all I have. Be sure to stop by Ashley’s blog to see her take on the challenge today.


Birthday Card Challenge No. 2

Hi, gang!

Back again with another birthday card inspired by the Birthday Card challenge with Ashley.

Meet today’s card.

A stamped card by Teri //

This one is a wee bit on the sassy side. In fact, I had a little help with the sassy factor by using Technique Tuesday’s Sassy Birthday 2.0 stamp set (and coordinating dies). The words and the dress are all from the set.

I had colored in these dresses awhile ago while crafting with friends but hadn’t had a chance to do anything with them. This felt like the card to use them on. VintageBirthdayDressesCard2-teri

The patterned papers are all scraps from my box of scraps. I just tried to pick a color scheme of scraps that worked with the colors of the dresses since I’d had already colored them in.

Tried something a little different by stamping one sentiment above the dresses, and then another below them. Kinda like that look.

Alright. That’s it for today. Be sure to hit Ashley’s blog to see her take on the challenge!

PS. Technique Tuesday has a sale through the end of today, March 13th. 25% off with coupon code on Easter stamps, dies and cutting files. You’ll find them all here.


Technique Tuesday Release Day


Hi, all!

March 1st means the new release at Technique Tuesday is live. You’ll find all the new goods right here.

And I’m sharing a project today created with a couple of the new products.

A handmade card by Teri for Technique Tuesday //

Created this little dude with the new Gertie & Garth Goat stamps and coordinating dies.

I just had fun with this card by stamping several elements from the stamp set, cutting them with the dies and the coloring them in with my trusty old markers.

Created the little scene by pairing everything together. Rather than letting the goat, cans and flowers “float” in the air, I used a cosmetic sponge to sponge a little black ink onto the card. It’s just a simple little thing to do, but it’s a great way to “ground” your stamped images.

You might be wondering about the label. That’s was cut with Technique Tuesday’s Retro Labels dies. I cut it, stamped the image on it and then added a little pop with some foam tape. I always like adding a little extra dimension with foam adhesives.

Alrighty! That’s what I have. Be sure to swing by the Technique Tuesday blog for a list of all the other TT Design Team members sharing projects today. You’ll also find links to their blogs.

Technique Tuesday Release Countdown Day 2


Hi, gang!

Back again with the Technique Tuesday crew. We are working our way to the March release!

I’ve got a couple cards to share with you.

Both cards feature the new Sassy Love Your Guts stamps and coordinating dies. They are the latest addition in TT’s Sassy Sentiments collection of products and debut officially on March 1st.

I couldn’t resist making something with the cat and dog in the stamp set and so I did. I stamped them and colored them in with my trusty markers, and then I used the dies to cut them out.Fur-Kids-Card-Teri-A-Technique-Tuesday

The sentiment is also from the stamp set. I did use a pen to write in “fur kids” and draw the arrow.

This next card also uses the stamp set and dies.

For this card, I stamped and die-cut three jellyfish. I colored them in with markers.


I sponged blue ink onto a cardstock circle, added  some drops with Glossy Accents and added the jellyfish.


The envelope was pre-made. I had stamped the words on it, and then I stamped some words onto a tag I made to fit in the envelope.

Turned out pretty fun!

You’ll find the Sassy Love Your Gut stamp set and dies on the New Products page on the Technique Tuesday website on the 1st.

And you’ll find a list of all the other Technique Tuesday Design Team members sharing projects today on the Technique Tuesday blog. Prepare to be amazed. So many cool things. Yep. I might have peeked. 😉


Technique Tuesday Release Countdown Day 1


Hi, guys!

I’m joining the Technique Tuesday gang today in sharing a project made with some goods from the March release.

The new release debuts on March 1st on their website. You can see a few of the new products today on their blog. You’ll also find links to all the other design team members sharing projects today!

I used a couple new products for this guy.

I created the heart with the new Pieces of my Heart die. I cut three hearts from cardstock (red, pink and white). I mounted the pink and the red ones together, and then cut a puzzle piece from the white one and added it to the top. I finished it by adding a small heart covered with glitter glue on top. (The little heart was cut with TT’s Nested Hearts dies).Piece-Of-My-Heart-Card-Teri-A-Technique-Tuesday

The sentiment I used is from the Love You to Pieces stamp set, which  debuts on the 1st along with the Pieces of my Heart die.

It’s good for cards and scrapbook pages. And I’m sure you could come up with a bunch of other uses for it too! It’s packed with lots of great words.

Look for all of Technique Tuesday’s new products to debut on the 1st. You’ll find them in the New Products category on their website.

And, once again, be sure to hit the Technique Tuesday blog for links to the blogs of all the other TT Design Team members sharing projects today.

See you again tomorrow with another project made with some March release products!

Today’s card (2-19)

Hi gang!

Back at it with another card to share.


Made this card a bit back for Technique Tuesday with their new Cheeky Chicken stamp set. Have you seen it? Some of the phrases are pretty dang funny. A few are bit edgy too.


Pretty simple card to make. I stamped the chicken over and over on cardstock. I stamped him one more time on white cardstock, fussy cut his little body out with my handy dandy scissors colored him in and plopped him on the blue paper. To give him a little extra pop, I used a light blue marker to add a little outline around his body. The idea was to draw the eye to him.

The sentiment circle came together like this:

  • Cut two circles. One smaller than other.
  • Stamp sentiment on smaller circle.
  • Plop smaller circle on larger circle. Call it good.
  • Have second thoughts.
  • Add a whole bunch of dots with your dependable friend, Nuvo Crystal Dots.
  • Raise your hands in victory!

Alright! That’s what I got, friends.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by! Oh, and please join me in celebrating the new 2018 Technique Tuesday Design Team! You’ll get to see this awesome crew every month as part of the Technique Tuesday’s brand new New Release Countdown, which will happen on the last 2 days of every month. There’s also three lovely ladies who serving as ambassadors (Tobi Crawford, Birgit Edblom and Jenn Brown) to Technique Tuesday and will be sharing projects on their blogs during the year.

Today’s card (1-15)

Hi friends!

Here yet again on the old blog-a-roo. Sharing a card I put together last week that I just plain had fun putting together.

A stamped card by Teri //

Made this guy with a couple new Technique Tuesday products: the Cascading Hearts border die and the Simply You 2.0 stamps. I also used their Retro Labels dies (from their Fresh Cut Studio collection of dies).

So how did I do the hearts? Well, I cut a card base from white cardstock. I folded it in half, opened it up and then placed the heart die right onto it. I ran it through my Big Shot machine and ended up with that cool heart border.

The border was cool, but it needed more so I added some strips of patterned paper to the inside of the card. I also added a few a sequin and a few drops of white Nuvo Crystal Drops.

I think it turned out pretty nice!

Alrighty, friends! That’s all I got! I’ll be back later, gators.

Thanks for swinging by.
