About Me

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!

MFP Challenge 35 - Patchwork Tutorial

 
 

MFP Challenge 35 - Patchwork Tutorial

If ever there was a challenge for me, this is it!  I am the queen of scraps.  I save my scraps....my friends save their scraps for me....I've even been known to look through the garbage at the end of a workshop for other people's scraps!  I think I'm addicted to scraps.  LOL :-)

This was a very fun tutorial for me.....I picked 4 scraps that sort-of matched each other and started cutting. I edged them all in light tan and glued them down to my base color. I stamped a sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers in the left lower corner....it's from the Be Happy Mini set.  I stamped a flower from Mark's Magnolia stamp set on an ivory piece of cardstock and colored it with Copic markers before mounting it on the same base color as the card.  I popped it up with pop dots. I added just a touch of glitter to the center of the flower to finish it off.  Thank you so much for stopping by...grab some of your own scraps and enter this fun challenge at Mark's Finest Papers.  Have a wonderful day.
