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 Everything Fall DP Tutorial

MFP Everything Fall Blog Hop Challenge - DP Tutorial

This was fun making leaves out of a flower punch!  I used 2 of Mark's Finest stamp sets on my card.....The tree is from the Big Trees set and the word is from the Autumn Splender set.  I added some gold highlights, although they are pretty hard to see.

MFP Everything Fall ATC Cards

MFP Everything Fall Blog Hop Tutorial - ATC Cards

This was my first attempt at ATC Cards, and after reading the tutorial I thought they would be really fun! I ended up making 4 of them....2 landscape and 2 portrait.

Top left - I found some pretty paper and added a sentiment from MFPs "All Postal" set.
Bottom left - this little sunflower stamp looks cute with the "Hi" from MFPs "All Postal" set.
Top right - the owl and sentiment are from MFPs "Autumn Splendor" set.
Bottom right - cute polar bear paper with a saying from MFPs "Snowflakes" set.

I had a lot of fun making these and hope you enjoy them!

MFP SF&F 281

MFP Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge 281 - use the negative die cut

I used a scalloped heart die cut from Spellbinders and colored the negative image with distress ink.  Then I placed a Memory Box die cut flower over top and stamped a sentiment for an anniversary card toward the bottom.

Thank you for all the nice comments, and especially to Mark's Finest Papers for choosing this entry as the winner of this week's challenge!  I earned the stamp set called "More Snowflakes".  How exciting!!

MFP SF&F Challenge 280

MFP Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge 280 - Banners

The leaves here are just beginning to get a little color and that put me in a fall mood.  I used a wreath die cut and stamped it with fall colored leaves.  I then added a banner. Next I mounted it on an embossed background.

MFP #278 Stamp Over a Stencil

MFP Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge 278 - stamp over a stencil

This was a new technique for me this week, and I chose this owl from Mark's Autumn Spendor set.
The stencil is from Dreamweaver's.  I added a die cut and this is how it turned out!
