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!!

Tuesday Throwdown 291 - Anything Goes

Tuesday Throwdown 291 - Anything Goes

For this challenge I used stamps from Northwoods Rubber Stamps. I watercolored them with Tombow markers and mounted the flower stamps on a piece of black paper from my stash.  I mounted the black piece on a piece of orange textured paper from The Paper Studio.  I added small touches of glitter and finished it off with a sentiment stamp and small butterfly stamp, both from Northwoods.  Thank you for stopping by....have a great day!

Ink is from Fun Stampers Journey (Huckleberry Fusion).  The final touch was a ribbon from my stash.  Thanks for checking out my card - have a great day!!

MFP Stamps Challenge 16 - Joy Fold Card

I used a stamp from Door County Rubber Stamps and a sentiment stamp from Marks Finest Papers on my joy fold card this week.  I'm so anxious for camping season to start.....I couldn't resist these cute gulls! I used Tombow markers to water color the image.

MFP Challenge 15

MFP Stamps Challenge 15 - Faux Patina

I used one of Marks' paper dolls for my image this week. I colored her dress and hair with Copic markers. For the tutorial colors I used Tim Holtz distress inks: Antique Linen, Tumbled Glass, Forest Moss and Walnut Stain.  Looking at it now I should have used more Tumbled Glass and Forest Moss because these colors didn't show up very well.  I liked the tutorial.....it's great for that "antique" or "vintage" look. Thanks for stopping by!
