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 1827

Happy Monday Everyone!  Welcome to PIP Challenge 1827, an Anything Goes challenge, sponsored this week by Di's Digis.  Please be sure to visit their website to see what cute and adorable images they have to offer.  Thanks for being such a great sponsor!!

My card this week uses images and an embossing folder from Stampin' Up.  I colored the stamp itself with markers and stamped the image on white paper. The sentiment was cut out using an oval die cut (sorry, can't remember who it is from) and then popped up with pop dots.  I added a black layer of paper to offset the image panel and then the whole thing is spritzed with shimmer spray.

Please be sure to check out the other inspiration from our design team members at this week's challenge and get your project uploaded for a chance to win a $12 gift certificate from Di's Digis.  That's a great prize!!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 398

Hello, and welcome to Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 398, where our theme is "Interactive Card" and our sponsor is the lovely Kim Sherrod at LilyPatch Boutique. Please be sure to check out her website to see the wonderful items she has!

I had so many ideas for my interactive card.....first it was a waterfall card, then a magic card where you pull up a panel with a black and white image and the same image is colored underneath, then a pinwheel card, and I finally settled on a spinner card.  These are so much fun, and perfect for kids of all ages! You'd be surprised how many spins it takes to make the arrow land on the sentiment!  My supplies and stamps are all from Fun Stampers Journey this week.

Our Interactive Challenge can be found HERE and I hope you visit it to see some great inspiration from the other design team members.  Be sure to uplink your Interactive project for a chance to win a great prize from our sponsor!  Thank you so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!!

PIP Challenge 1821

Welcome to PIP Challenge 1821, an Anything Goes Challenge, sponsored this week by Di's Digis.  Thank you to Di's Digis for being our sponsor this week - I am using this adorable image from their product line called "Sunflower Ted".  Please visit Di's Digis to see the other great products they have to offer! I colored the image with Copic markers and added some sparkle with my Sparkle Pen from Spectrum Noir.  The background is made with washi tape and adhesive ribbon from my stash. I have been struggling with how to use washi tape for a long time and I finally stepped out of my comfort zone and tried this.  After applying the washi and ribbon tape, I mounted the piece on black cardstock and then again on the base card.  I added a sentiment from Stampendous and 3 black rhinestones to finish it off.

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!
