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!

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!
