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 1725

Welcome to PIP Challenge 1725, an Anything Goes challenge, sponsored this week by Bugaboo Stamps.  I chose the digital image "Believe 4 Square".  Please check out all the great images at Bugaboo....you'll have a hard time deciding which one you like best!!

I made a square card this week.....a rare thing for me, but it works!  This image was so easy to work with.  I printed the image on watercolor paper and used my Tombow markers and a water brush.  I mounted the image on yellow cardstock and again on purple cardstock cut out using a scalloped edge square die cut. A few swishes of Wink of Stella and I was done!  Please be sure to check out all the great cards by the other Design Team members at our challenge, and get your entry in for a chance to win some great product!!  Thank you so much for stopping by - have a wonderful day!

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 347

Welcome to Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 347, where our theme this week is "For the Men".  Our awesome sponsor this week is Dr. Digi.  Please be sure to check out their products....they have some of the cutest images!!

I selected "Rainy Raymond" for my image this week - and I colored him with Copic markers.  I wanted to keep my card pretty simple so I could keep him as the focus.  I used cardstock and patterned paper from my stash (yes, my very LARGE stash!) Lol.  I mounted the image on black paper and popped this and the sentiment up with pop dots.  My dad has a birthday coming up, and I think I will send this to him.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I look forward to seeing your entry in our challenge!!  Have a wonderful day!

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 410


I hadn't entered a card challenge in quite awhile, and when I saw the colors (tangerine, poppy and charcoal) for this challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  I got out my pan pastels and created a silhouette scene with a sunset-type background. I used a stamp set from Amuse Studio and an embossing folder from Darice to make the card.  Not too bad for the first attempt at using pan pastels. Thanks so much for stopping by - have a great day!

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!!
