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 1838

Welcome to PIP Challenge 1838, an "Anything Goes" challenge sponsored this week by Ching-Chou Kuik Digis.  Thanks so much to them for being an awesome sponsor and for providing this image for the design team to use.  It's called "Night Shadow 2", and I think it's just beautiful!  You can check out all their awesome designs HERE.

I wanted to add just a touch of color so as not to take away from the owl image, so I sparingly colored with Copic Markers.  I also added a little Spectrum Noir sparkle marker in the flowers and on the owl.  I finished it off with 3 brads in a matching color.

Please visit our challenge this week to see the awesome inspiration from the other design team members and be sure to get your project linked up for a chance to win a really nice prize from our sponsor!  It's really nice that you stopped by - I appreciate it!!  Thank you, and have a wonderful day!

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 410

It's Tuesday, and you know what that means......Yes, a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!!  This week we are sponsored by the lovely Crafty Girl, and our theme is "Add some Texture".  Thanks so much to Crafty Girl for providing images for the design team to use.  I chose this one called "Flower Trio"and surprisingly I knew just what I wanted to do with it the moment I saw it!  (Rare for me!)

I cut the image into 3 panels, colored each with Copic markers and ran them through 3 different embossing folders before mounting on black cardstock.  Then I ran the background paper through a swiss dot embossing folder (good ole' standby!!) I added a small sentiment from Fun Stampers Journey.  The finishing touches are enamel dots, clear gems and a little Spectrum Noir sparkle marker.

I hope you will visit Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 410 and see the awesome inspiration from the other design team members.  Be sure to add your "textured" project to the link for a chance to win a nice prize from our wonderful sponsor.  Thank you so much for stopping by......have a wonderful day!

I wanted to make a card this week for my nephew's wedding.  I used a Stampin' Up embossing folder (Lovely Floral) and embossed it on a piece of wedding invitation paper I had. It's hard to tell from this picture, but I used a Spectrum Noir clear sparkle marker in the petal areas of the flowers.  I added a sentiment from Fun Stampers Journey and a triple bow of silver thread.

At first I wanted to create a clean and simple card this week, but after I started pulling items from my stash, I decided on a black and white card and used this beautiful corner ornamental die - and I'm sorry to say I don't know whose it is.  I embossed the white piece with Fun Stampers Journey "Petals Wall" embossing folder.  I layered the Best Wishes image on black paper and popped it up with pop dots on top of the black and white ribbon from my stash.  It's hard to see in this picture, but the dandelion image is covered in Spectrum Noir sparkle marker.  I added a few pearls for embellishment.    Please visit our challenge this week and uplink your creation for a chance to win a prize from Bugaboo Stamps!  Thank you so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!

PIP Challenge 1831

Can't believe it's August already!  And it's time for another PIP Challenge, too!  This week we are sponsored by Digital Delights by Louby Loo.  Thanks so much to them for being an awesome sponsor.  They kindly provided an image for us to work with, and I chose "Ellie the Elephant".  Isn't she adorable?  I love her facial expression!!  Be sure to visit their website to see all the other adorable images they have available.

This is really a CAS card - I colored the image with Copic markers and popped it up with pop dots on this adorable piece of patterned paper from my stash.  Then I stamped the sentiment (from Fiskars) on a piece of coordinating card stock and popped that up as well.  A few silver sequins later, and I was finished.

I couldn't resist making another card with this adorable image. This one I masked and used a background stamp from Fun Stampers Journey.  I colored Ellie with Copic markers and added a little pink bow and a few sequins. The sentiment (Stampin' Up) was stamped right on top of Ellie. The finishing touch was some Journey glaze on her eyes.

Please visit our challenge this week to see some great inspiration from the other design team members and get your project linked up for a chance to win product from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.  Thank you for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!

Welcome to PIP Challenge 1830, where our sponsor this week is Newton's Nook and our theme is "Sunny Days".  Please be sure to visit Newton's Nook Designs to see all the awesome product they have to offer!  

Do you know how sometimes you can see your finished card in your head prior to it being made?   And then sometimes it doesn't turn out anything like you thought it would?  THAT'S my card this week....turned out nothing like I thought it would!!  (lol)     I wanted to make a nice sunny, summery scene behind Newton taking a nap to fit in with our theme this week.  So I used images from Stampin' Up's High Tide set. I stamped Newton and fussy cut him out and colored him with Copic markers.  I popped him up with pop dots. I added a little sparkle marker from Spectrum Noir on the flowers and butterflies and just a touch on the water to make it sparkly.

Please check out the awesome inspiration from the other design team members at this week's challenge and be sure to uplink your project for a chance to win free product from Newton's Nook.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 402

Hello and welcome to Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 402.  Our theme this week is "Heatwave", which means use hot colors. Our awesome sponsor this week is Winnie and Walter.  If you haven't had a chance to see their website, do yourself a favor and visit them....you will not be disappointed!!  And you'll probably come away with some darling sets, too!  Thank you to them for providing a stamp set for the design team to use.  I chose "Shirley's Blooms" and "Hello Cutaway".

I had my card in mind the second I saw this set - a pretty rare thing for me!  But with the "Heatwave" theme I knew I wanted flowers in hot colors and a simple sentiment so as not to detract from the flowers.  I stamped the individual flowers on white cardstock, then die cut the "Hello" in the same color as the base cards. I added some pink stickles and some Spectrum Noir sparkle marker.  Just a few clear rhinestones and I was finished.

Please visit our challenge this week HERE to see some great inspiration from the other design team members, and be sure to upload your creative project for a chance to win a prize from Winnie & Walter.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!
