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 Tutorial Challenge 36 - #2

MFP Tutorial Challenge 36 - #2 Citrus Bag Background

It's really cool how a simple citrus bag can make such a cool background!  The pattern can be so varied just by stretching it a little this way or a little that way.  I'm so glad I participated in this Mark's Finest Papers challenge!!

For this card I started with a pomegranate color, thinking I was going to do a fall card. But as it turned out, well.....you can see it's not really a fall card!  I used the tutorial to make the background and layered it on two pomegranate colored triangles.  I cut out a square of the same pomegranate cardstock, turned it and glued it in the middle of the card. I used a flower stamp from Mark's Finest Papers "Blessings" stamp sets, colored it with Copic markers and fussy cut it out. I layered this with pop dots on the square. I stamped "With Sympathy" in the corner and then added a little bit of glitter to the flower.....it's a little hard to see from this picture.

Thank you for stopping by.....have a wonderful day!
