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 Stamps Challenge 2

MFP Stamps Challenge 2 - Acryllic Block Stamping

I used 2 of Marks Finest Papers' stamps in my card this week.  The daisies, and the Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Hot Air Balloon stamp set. I used a square block with lavender ink for the background and then added a ribbon accent after stamping the daisies and the sentiment.

MFP Stamps Challenge 1

MFP Stamps Challenge 1 - CAS with snow theme.

I used 2 of Marks Finest Stamps on this card......Big Trees and a sentiment from Snowflakes. I made a circle mask and colored it with distress inks, then stamped the trees and made "snowflakes" with a white pigment pen. I used a snowflake embossing folder ant cut out the circle so it fit over the masked area. Lastly, I stamped "I Love Snow" sentiment.
