About Me

My photo
Hi, my name is Terri. I started crafting at an early age when my grandmothers taught me how to crochet and embroider on dish towels. Over the years I've tried many other crafting mediums, and have found my favorite in rubber stamping. My wonderful guy (Craig) supports me in everything I do........I'm very blessed!! I love learning new things and hopefully will inspire others to step out of their comfort zone and try a few new things. Thanks so much for stopping by....have a wonderful day!

PIP Challenge 1820

Welcome to PIP Challenge 1820, an Anything Goes challenge sponsored this week by Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Thank you so much to Sparkle N Sprinkle for providing an image for us to use. I chose this beautiful Happy Birthday sentiment called "Love and Laughter".  Please visit their website to see all the great products they have to offer.

I printed the sentiment on white card stock and "daubered" the background with distress inks (Broken China and Peacock Feather).  One of my daubers was pretty worn and it made a feathery  design, which I really liked. Then I used black ink and a  Tim Holtz stencil (Wildflowers) to make the flowers on the bottom of the card. I added some black twine and a black gem for dimension and spritzed the whole thing with shimmer mist. I layered this on black cardstock and then again on a white card base.

Please visit our challenge this week to see the wonderful cards made by the other Design Team members, and link up your creation for a chance to win product from this week's sponsor, Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Thank you so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!

PIP Challenge 1818

Happy Monday, and welcome to Pammies Inky Pinkies (PIP) Challenge 1818, an Anything Goes challenge sponsored this week by Newton's Nook.  Thank you so much to Newton's Nook for being such an awesome sponsor!  I am using stamps from  "Newton's Birthday Bash".  Be sure to visit Newton's Nook website to see all the delicious products they have!!

I used an embossing resist technique this week, stamping my background images with VersaMark on white paper and using white embossing powder.  Then I heat embossed the piece and applied ink in 3 different colors.  The embossed images resist the colored ink and show up white in the background. I colored Newton and his presents with Copic markers and used a couple of dies to make a decorative circle piece.  I added some ribbon from my stash and just a touch of Spectrum Noir sparkle pen on the ribbons of the presents.  A quick "Happy Birthday" sentiment and I was finished!

Thank you so much for stopping by - love seeing you and hope you will check out the other design team members inspiration at our challenge.  I can't wait to see your entry into our drawing for some Newton's Nook product!!  Have a wonderful day!

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 388

Welcome to Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 388, where our theme is "Glimmer and Shine" and our sponsor is Studio Katia.  Please check out the wonderful products at Studio Katia.....there are so many awesome things!!  Thank you for being our sponsor this week!   I used the stamp set "Together We Bloom" and stamped 3 flower images in VersaMark on watercolor paper and then heat embossed them with black embossing powder.  I used Tombow markers and an aqua pen to color them.  I had planned to use the sentiment from the set also, but it was too large for my circles, so I opted for a Best Wishes stamp from my stash.  After adding some sequins, I sprayed the entire card with a glimmer spray and then used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens to add more glimmer to the flowers.  If you zoom in, you can see all this glimmer.

Be sure to visit our challenge this week to see the inspiration from our design team members.  We'd love to see your projects, also!!  And the bonus is that you can enter for a chance to win a prize from Studio Katia!  Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!
