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 1816

Happy Monday, and welcome to PIP Challenge 1816, an Anything Goes challenge sponsored this week by Sasayaki Glitter.  Thank you to our wonderful sponsor for providing this image called "Mia's Graduation" for us to work with.  Be sure to visit their website and see all the great products they have to offer.

I colored the image with Copic markers and fussy cut it out. I used a diecut to make a design on one side of the card and then used the "Splat" stamp and a sentiment from Fun Stampers Journey on the other side of the card before layering "Mia" on top.  I used a sparkle marker from Spectrum Noir on her cap and gown and added a few rhinestones for accent.

So happy you stopped by - be sure to visit PIP Challenges to see the other design team members' awesome inspiration and get your project linked up for a chance to win product from Sasayaki Glitter.  Have a wonderful day!

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 388

Welcome to Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 388, where our theme is "Glimmer and Shine" and our sponsor is Studio Katia.  Please check out the wonderful products at Studio Katia.....there are so many awesome things!!  Thank you for being our sponsor this week!   I used the stamp set "Together We Bloom" and stamped 3 flower images in VersaMark on watercolor paper and then heat embossed them with black embossing powder.  I used Tombow markers and an aqua pen to color them.  I had planned to use the sentiment from the set also, but it was too large for my circles, so I opted for a Best Wishes stamp from my stash.  After adding some sequins, I sprayed the entire card with a glimmer spray and then used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens to add more glimmer to the flowers.  If you zoom in, you can see all this glimmer.

Be sure to visit our challenge this week to see the inspiration from our design team members.  We'd love to see your projects, also!!  And the bonus is that you can enter for a chance to win a prize from Studio Katia!  Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!

PIP Challenge 1815

Welcome to PIP Challenge 1815, an Anything Goes challenge, sponsored by Gerda Steiner this week.  Thanks very much to Gerda Steiner for providing this adorable "Strawberry Mouse" image for us to use!  Be sure to check out all the other adorable products at their site!!  So much to choose from....

I wanted to make a shaker card this week and found these plastic shaker forms in my stash.  I colored the image with Copic markers and added some Red Spectrum Noir sparkle marker - you can see it up close. I fussy cut the image out and layered it to the cardstock.  I added some sequins and beads to match my paper to the shaker form and got it all glued together. Then I added a sentiment from Fun Stampers Journey. Final touch was some black bakers twine.

I hope you check out the other inspirational cards by our design team at our challenge this week and upload your creation for a chance to win some product from Gerda Steiner.  As always, it's great to see you and I'm so glad you stopped by!  Have a wonderful day!
