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 1733

Oh boy, Oh boy, Oh boy!  It's someone's birthday and I bet you can't guess who!!  Yes, Craig had a birthday over the weekend and this is the card I made for him.  It's also Monday, which means it's time for a new PIP Challenge, where the theme is "Anything Goes".  Our sponsor this week is the wonderful MHK Designs.  I fell in love with this Sea Creatures digi set and knew it would be perfect for Craig's birthday card.  Be sure to check out all the great images at MHK Designs.

To make my background I put drops of blue, aqua and citrus green reinkers on a stamping block and spritzed with water.  I laid my paper on top of that to get the initial color on it.  Then I drew some "weeds" with markers and spritzed more water directly on the paper to get the watery look. I dried it with a heat gun.  I stamped a few fish toward the bottom  and then colored my main fish with Copic markers.  I popped them up with pop dots.  I added some "bubbles" with Nuvo Jewel Drops and stamped my sentiment (sorry, I don't remember where it's from) in the top left corner.  To finish it all off, I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers in blue, green and clear all over the water to make it sparkle. Unfortunately it didn't show up well in the picture.  Trust me....it's sparkly!!

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 355

It's Tuesday, and you know what that means!!  Another Tuesday Throwdown Challenge!!  This week we are sponsored by Newton's Nook Designs and our theme is "interactive cards".  I made a wiggle card, so if Newton and his cup are touched, he wiggles on a piece of coiled wire.

This was a very fun card to make. I used the wire from a wired ribbon and wrapped approx. 3" of wire around a thin paint brush handle. I punched a hole in two small circles, coiled the wire through them and glued them to another small circle.  After coloring Newton and his cup with Copic markers, I glued one end of the wire piece to that and the other to my base card.  Then I  finished my card with some Fun Stampers Journey Sparkle Silk and a few sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by - I hope you will check out all of the awesome products at Newton's Nook Designs and the creative cards by the other design team members at the challenge.  Have a wonderful day!

PIP Challenge 1732

Welcome to Monday and another PIP Challenge!!  This week we are sponsored by Fabrika Fantasy and our theme is "Anything Goes".  This is my first time using a Fabrika Fantasy image, and I was amazed at the selection they have - be sure to check them out!!   I chose this Frolicking Possums image and made an "I Love You" card.  I colored the image with Copic Markers and used a die cut  (sorry, I can't remember where from). The small hearts stamp is from Judith.  All this was layered on a light blue piece of card stock from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by.  Please be sure to check out the other design team members' cards at the challenge.......I'm looking forward to seeing your entry there!!  Have a wonderful day!
