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 (4-21)

Hi, friends!

Back again with another stamped card to share with you.

Meet today’s card.

A stamped handmade card by Teri || terisplace,wordpress.com

Just a little “for fun” card that came as the result of messing around once again with the Three Amigos stamp set (and coordinating dies) from Mama Elephant.

I just love the little signs the animals hold in the stamp set. And I love that they are blank so you can really do all kinds of things with them.

I wanted to make a card for a friend, who is always there for everyone with a kind word and hug, so I went with these phrases. I easily could have turned this into a birthday card to give to another friend instead by using different words.

I was pretty pleased with the card when I added the stamped images to it, but I felt like it needed some extra pop so I used Nuvo Crystal Drops to add a circle (Look really, really really close! It’s black!) to the die-cut circle. Then I used white Nuvo Crystal Drops to make a white dot border outside the black circle.

I also added some dots with red Crystal Drops to my little stamped, colored (with markers) and die-cut hearts.

I think the dots just add the right little something to a card.

Anyway,  that’s it for today. I’ll be back again later, friends. See you soon.
