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 1709


Pammies Inky Pinkies Challenge 1709

YAY!  It's another PIP Challenge.....our theme is "Anything Goes" and this week we are sponsored by Di's Digis!  You really need to check out this site, as there are so many adorable images!!  It was very hard choosing which one to use!

I decided on this sweet "Umbrella Friends" image and colored it with Copic markers.  I die cut the image and popped it up on a polka dotted piece of paper, which was then layered on a teal piece of cardstock.  My sentiment is from Fun Stampers Journey.  I added a few sequins for accent.

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 331


Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 331

Welcome to Tuesday Throwdown Challenge, where these week we are sponsored by Power Poppy.  Our theme this week is "favorite embellishment".  I have to admit, it was a little difficult for me to choose which embellishment is my favorite...there are so many wonderful ones, and I love them all!!  So I narrowed it down to 2.....ribbon and pearls/gem stones.  These 2 really are my "go to" embellishments for most of my cards.

I used Copic markers to color my image, and then used a technique called "Cracked Glass".  I inked my entire image with a VersaMark ink pad and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I did this 2 or 3 more times, making layers of clear embossing, and then put my image in the freezer for 5 minutes.  When I took it out of the freezer, I started to bend it, and the layers of embossing cracked just a little.  I continued to bend it until it had lots of little cracks all over.  I took an ink pad of similar color to my background paper and dobbered ink over the entire image, making sure I got ink in the cracks.  After wiping off the excess ink, I was left with an image that looked aged and distressed.  For the sentiment, I heat embossed it with VersaMark ink and clear embossing powder just once. 

Thank you so much for stopping by....please be sure to check out all the other Design Team Members' cards this week at our challenge and get your entry in.  We'd love to see what you create!  Have a wonderful day!

Welcome to this week's Tuesday Throwdown challenge where our theme is "Heart Strings"......that means anything with hearts and string or twine.  Our sponsor this week is My Grafico, and we thank them for such beautiful images.....be sure to check out their product line!

I started with a double heart image, printed it on patterned paper and fussy cut it out. I punched a border and sewed the twine around the edges of the top layer.  I also wrapped it around the top layer a few times and tied a bow.  Then I layered this on a darker brown and finally on the base card.  The sentiment is from Door County Rubber Stamps.   My card turned out pretty rustic-looking, which was what I wanted, so I was pleased.  Thank you so much for stopping by - have a wonderful day!

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #318 - Thanksgiving


Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #318 - Thanksgiving

Welcome to this week's challenge - our theme is Thanksgiving, sponsored by My Grafico
It's hard to believe it's that time already, but nature is telling me it's true.....our fall colors have been spectacular in northeast Wisconsin this year.  God's beauty is all around us, and I am thankful for so many things this year.  One of them is the wonderful friendships I have made through Tuesday Throwdown Challenges, this blog and different crafting venues. I believe we all have special talents, and it is so wonderful to be among people willing to share their talents and who are so supportive of each other. Thank you to each of you for your friendship and everything you have shared with me.  I truly appreciate you!

For this card, I used dies from Fun Stampers Journey - "Snapshot Frames".  I searched through my scraps and found fall colors, using a rust colored one for the base card, a green one for the frame, and two patterned pieces for the leaves.  The ribbon was also from my stash.  The sentiment is from our sponsor, My Grafico.  I hope to see you in this week's challenge.....thank you for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!
