About Me

My photo
Hi, my name is Terri. My grandmothers taught me how to crochet and embroider on dish towels when I was a little girl, and that started my love of crafting. Over the years I tried different things but my favorite is still stamping and card making. And what makes it better now is that my 2 sisters like it also!! It's fun when we can get together and make cards!! I love learning new ideas and techniques and give hope to others to step out of their comfort zone and try a few new things. Thanks so much for stopping by....follow along if you'd like and see what we can create!!

MFP Color Challenge 47 - Red Pink Green

MFP Color Challenge 47 - red, pink, green

This was a fun color combination to work with, especially since I still had my Valentines Day paper out!  I used a stamp from Mark's Finest Papers All Postal set, along with a Cuttlebug embossing folder...Juli's Garden. Pink and clear rhinestones added the final touch.

MFP Inspiration Challenge #88 - Zentangle

MFP Inspiration Challenge #88 - Zentangle

I've been interested in zentangle for awhile but never worked up enough courage to give it a try....until now!!  What beautiful examples to work from with the pictures and the design team's cards!  I used a flower from MFP Mother's Magnolia set. I did small circles on the underside petals and a combination of empty loops and loops with lines inside for the rest of the petals.  It really changes the look of the image!   I will do more zentangle to get better at it because I like the effect. Thanks for a fun challenge!

MFP FOSTV 150 Square Card

MFP FOSTV Challenge 150 -  Square Card

I have to admit I don't make a lot of square cards.....not really sure why. Maybe because I don't have a lot of square envelopes??  Ha Ha Ha.   I used BasicGrey paper scraps.

MFP Speedy Fox and Friends Week 244

MFP Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge Week 244

Layered embossing was not something I had tried before, so I was excited to learn this technique! I used the Swiss dot embossing folder and liked how the background turned out. What a great way to add a little something to single layer pieces!

MFP Color Challenge 46

MFP Color Challenge 46 - pink, yellow, green

These are great spring colors and since it actually got above freezing (32*) today, I'm ready for spring!!  I love using the embossing folders for texture on a card, and the polka dot bow finished it off.

MFP Color Challenge 44

MFP Color Challenge 44 - burgandy, green, gold

I love this color combination! I used an embossing folder on the cream stock and 2 die cuts for the message part.  I used a greeting from Mark's Finest Papers...one of my favorites!
