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 1721

Welcome to PIP Challenge 1721, where our theme is Anything Goes.  Our sponsor this week is Fred She Said.  Please be sure to check out their site....the choices are amazing!!  I chose this beautiful digi called "v6 Daisies with Bracket Frame".  Love it!

I decided to try a new type of card this week - a Dutch Fold Card.  I've admired them for years but had never tried to make one before.  I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to make, and the versatility is awesome......so many options!  I colored the flower images with Copic markers and used some scraps from my stash. A few glitter accents on the flowers and bling in the flower centers, and there you have it!!  So much fun!  I do hope you'll join us at the challenge this week.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!!

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 343


Welcome to Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 343, where this week we are sponsored by Fred She Said!  Our challenge is "texture".  I chose to use the beautiful "v6 Daisies" mage and colored it with Copic markers.  Each of the flowers and leaves was fussy cut and arranged on a piece of white card stock embossed with a sunburst embossing folder from the Tim Holtz collection.  I used a piece of pinkish cardstock for the base. The sentiment is from Penny Black.  For the finishing touches I added a rhinestone from my stash and some Wink of Stella and glitter on the flower petals.
