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!

Welcome to PIP Challenge 2112, an Anything Goes challenge, sponsored this week by We Are 3.  Thank you to We Are 3 for the lovely images for the design team members to work with.  The one I used is called Umbrella Dots.  Check out all their wonderful images and products at We Are 3 website.  I colored the umbrellas with Copic markers and made this into a baby shower card for a little boy.  I was inspired to do this because I just found out I'm going to be a Great Aunt again! So excited for the proud parents!!  I die cut the umbrella images and layered them on cardstock from my stash.  A chevron embossing folder was used on the background paper.  A simple sentiment typed on the computer completed the card.  Please visit our Challenge 2112 and uplink your creation for a chance to win a really great prize from We Are 3.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

PIP Challenge 2104

 

Welcome to PIP Challenge 2104, an Anything Goes Challenge sponsored this week by Cas-ual Fridays Stamps. A big thank you to Cas-ual Fridays stamps for providing the stamps for the design team members to use.  What awesome products they have - you can check them out here at Cas-ual Fridays Stamps.  I used a technique I haven't done in years.  It's a stamp pad direct to water color paper technique.  I stamped my ink pads directly on the water color paper, then spritzed them with water. The color runs and makes a cool background. After drying, I stamped the images on the paper and added a few gems for embellishment.  Please visit our Challenge 2104 to see some great inspiration from the other design team members and uplink your creation for a chance to win a great prize from Cas-ual Fridays Stamps!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
