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!

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 331


Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 331

Welcome to Tuesday Throwdown Challenge, where these week we are sponsored by Power Poppy.  Our theme this week is "favorite embellishment".  I have to admit, it was a little difficult for me to choose which embellishment is my favorite...there are so many wonderful ones, and I love them all!!  So I narrowed it down to 2.....ribbon and pearls/gem stones.  These 2 really are my "go to" embellishments for most of my cards.

I used Copic markers to color my image, and then used a technique called "Cracked Glass".  I inked my entire image with a VersaMark ink pad and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I did this 2 or 3 more times, making layers of clear embossing, and then put my image in the freezer for 5 minutes.  When I took it out of the freezer, I started to bend it, and the layers of embossing cracked just a little.  I continued to bend it until it had lots of little cracks all over.  I took an ink pad of similar color to my background paper and dobbered ink over the entire image, making sure I got ink in the cracks.  After wiping off the excess ink, I was left with an image that looked aged and distressed.  For the sentiment, I heat embossed it with VersaMark ink and clear embossing powder just once. 

Thank you so much for stopping by....please be sure to check out all the other Design Team Members' cards this week at our challenge and get your entry in.  We'd love to see what you create!  Have a wonderful day!

Welcome to this week's Tuesday Throwdown challenge where our theme is "Heart Strings"......that means anything with hearts and string or twine.  Our sponsor this week is My Grafico, and we thank them for such beautiful images.....be sure to check out their product line!

I started with a double heart image, printed it on patterned paper and fussy cut it out. I punched a border and sewed the twine around the edges of the top layer.  I also wrapped it around the top layer a few times and tied a bow.  Then I layered this on a darker brown and finally on the base card.  The sentiment is from Door County Rubber Stamps.   My card turned out pretty rustic-looking, which was what I wanted, so I was pleased.  Thank you so much for stopping by - have a wonderful day!
