Today’s card (9-12)

Hi guys!

Got another card to share with you today. This is one I made a bit back for Technique Tuesday with their new Echinacea stamp set and coordinating craft dies.

I am far from a coloring expert, but there’s just something about the flowers in this set that really made me want to color. And so … I did. 😉

Can you believe it? I used markers and it looks… looks… alright! 🙂 Hooray!

The papers behind the doily are just some old patterned papers from my stash-a-roo. And the doily? Well, it’s a real life paper doily from the nearest Cash-n-Carry store! I folded it in half, added a lot of adhesive and then plopped a circle of patterned paper on top of it before adding the stamped flower.


I felt like the card needed a little something extra so I tossed on a couple sequins. Sequins. I’m a fan. They definitely are a hard habit to break.

Alright, guys! That’s all I have for now. Be back later, gators.


Today’s card (4-2)

Hi guys!

Got a card to share with you today.


Ta-da! Cha-cha! 😉

Made this one with a new faith-based stamp set I designed for Technique Tuesday that was just released as part of small assortment of faith-based products.


The set is a bit on the light-hearted side. Fun to do.

For the card, I simply die-cut a circle and then stamped on top with a sentiment and the set’s flower. I added color to the flower with markers. Easy peasy.

Because I really wanted the circle to stand out, I added a larger circle under it and then placed all those sequins around it. It took a little bit of time to arrange them, but I sure dig the look.

Alright! That’s what I have for you. Be back again later, gators.

Today’s Card

Hi guys!

Another day. Another project to share.

Meet today’s card.

A handmade friendship card by Teri //

Sharing this one because…  well, I like it. 🙂 Simple as that. Sometimes, you make stuff and it doesn’t quite turn out how you envisioned. And then, sometimes, everything works out just right. This one is one of those “just right” ones.

That fox? Stamped her with the new Frederick and Fiona stamps from Technique Tuesday. They are part of their new Animal House collection of stamps and dies. The words? They were cut with the new coordinating Frederick and Fiona dies.

The fox could easily be a boy but I wanted it to be a girl so I tied a little bow with twine and then plopped it on the top of her head. I think it would be fun for a boy to add a little bow and place it on the fox’s chest as a little bow tie of sorts. Just thinking aloud though.

Rather than coloring in the fox’s nose with markers, I used some black Nuvo drops. I like that it gave it a little dimension that markers would not have.

Alrighty, friends. That’s what I have for you today. I’ll be back again soon. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.

snowflakes card by Teri //

Made this guy with Technique Tuesday’s Snowflakes and Sparkle and Shine dies, as well as the Marquee Label die and Planner – December Story stamp set.

I was going for kinda of a chalkboard look so I adhered the snowflakes on black cardstock and then used my finger to rub (liberally) some white ink all over them. Then I added an enamel dot the middle of each snowflake.

25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hi guys!

Happy to be taking part again in this year’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event with the awesome Tracey McNeeley! Today, the Technique Tuesday crew is joining the fun by contributing some tags.

Here’s my take on a tag!

Just had some fun with this one. Created a base with Technique Tuesday’s Story Card dies and then cut a bunch of snowflakes with the Snowflakes and Sparkle and Shine dies to place on the label and layer under it. I think the ones under it look kinda like lace doilies. Kinda fun, right?

You might wondering about those words? They are from the Being Unique stamp set, also from Technique Tuesday.

Alright. That’s what I have for you. Be sure to swing by Tracey’s blog to see what the rest of the team has cooked up!

Birthday Card Challenge

Hi all!

Another day. Another take on the Birthday Card Challenge with my friend, Ashley.

Today’s card is this right here.

This was my maiden voyage with Technique Tuesday’s new Mixin’ Up stamp set.  It’s a fun little set for cardmakers with a bunch of different occasion word stamps to pair with that “Mixin’ Up” phrase. Oh yeah, and there’s a bunch of kitchen stuff too. 😉

The bowl and the mixer are actually two stamps. I did a little masking by stamping the bowl and then masking it off and stamping the mixer. The result? Two stamps became one just like that.

And yes, I whipped out my markers to do the coloring. Easy peasy.

Be sure to check out Ashley’s blog for her take on the challenge this week. I am sure it will not disappoint.

Mix It Up Challenge, the Sequel

Hi all!

I couldn’t help myself. Had to make another card in honor of the Mix It Up Challenge over in The CLASSroom from Ellen Hutson.

Ta-da! Julie’s bear from All Inside stamp set is just so cute. 🙂 I mean, seriously, those hands! That face! Adorbs. Couldn’t resist playing again

This time, I gave him a bunch of hearts to hold. They were all cut (every single one of them) with the All Inside dies. The string of hearts? They are from the Heart Strings dies from Technique Tuesday. The string was a little longer at first, but I whacked it down a hair with scissors. Easy peasy.

Alright. That’s what I have. Don’t forget that you have until June 14th to link up projects that combine Essentials by Ellen products with Technique Tuesday products. One winner will be selected at random by the folks at Ellen Hutson to receive a $50 gift certificate.

See ya later, friends.
