Teri and Friends Technique Tuesday Blog Hop!

Hello my lovelies!!

I have a very special treat for you today!  I was asked my the out-of this-world-amazing-designer, Teri Anderson, to join her and some of her other friends to share samples that showcase the FREAKIN’ ADORABLE stamp designs that she created for Technique Tuesday.  For those of you that are new to my blog, WELCOME! If you arrived here from Kim Kesti’s blog, you’re on the right track. If not, you’ll need to start at the beginning of the hop (Teri’s blog HERE) so that you don’t miss a thing! Oh, and there are prizes available at each stop along the way, so be sure and leave each designer some love . . . just sayin’! Heeheehee

Here’s a little bit about Teri and Technique Tuesday:

Teri started designing stamps for Technique Tuesday last Summer. She designed 30 plus stamp sets, 20 of which were released as part of their CHA-Winter release. She’s a card maker and a scrapbooker with a lot of love for card making so there’s a lot of card influence in her stamps!

Wait until you see these images – you’re going to love them as much as I do! Let’s get started, shall we?

Stop In the Name of Love

I actually have two samples to share with you today.  My first one features one of the cutest stamp sets I’ve ever worked with – it’s called Happyville Cars!  Oh my gosh – this set has some of the cutest images ever, and they are just so fun to create with!  I stamped the car and the stop light in black ink, and jazzed up the stop light with some punched circles.  I colored “Stop” with a red marker and inked up the remainder of the sentiment with black ink, and stamped it onto a word bubble die cut.  Isn’t it too cute for words?

I Puffy Heart You

I had so much fun with the first card, I just couldn’t stop myself from creating another one!  This one features a couple of Teri’s new stamp sets – the sentiment is from Puffy Hearts and the images on the buttons are from the set called With Flair.  Flair is such a hot trend these days, so I HAD to create some of my own.  I picked up one of those goofy iTop thingies from Michael’s (if I didn’t have a 40% off coupon, I NEVER would have bought that dumb thing! LOL).  I stamped the three images onto copy paper (I needed it to be pretty thin in order to wrap around the button dealies) punched them out and did my best to wrap them around the button thing-a-ma-bobs.  They don’t look as great as real flair, but they look pretty good, right?!

Ready for some other amazing projects featuring Teri’s stamps?  Well, then here’s the full list of bloggers sharing her goodies:

The hop order is:

Joy
Kalyn
Donna

PRIZES!!!

I mentioned prizes earlier, right?!  Well, Teri has very generously offered up one of her stamp sets for each of the above blogs – I’m giving away the set called Banner UpAll you have to do is leave me some love on this blog post before March 1st and I’ll draw a random winner.  Easy peasy, right?!

 

Well, that’s it for me today kids.  You’re going to want to click on through to Lisa’s blog, as she’s the next stop on the hop – no doubt she’s got more deliciousness to share with you all!  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Please drop in again tomorrow, as I’ll have a Paper Smooches goody to share with you.  In the meantime, have a great day!

IN LOVE with the car set! I amso tired of the old, "speeding by with a 'fill in the blank' HI!" I WANT that set!!!how can I get it? Directly from Technique Tuesday? That's awesome that she's designing for them! I haven't seen anything new or interesting on a while from them, so that is super cool!

Love your other puffy card too! I'm so glad you're in the know! Had no idea flair was popular! :)

Puppy Kisses and Paper Dreams said...

I LOOOVE your puffy heart card! The colors had me at hello :)

Ruth G said...

The past two years I've come up with musically themed valentine's for my hubby and yours is a definite case for CASEing!!! My hubby would just get such a kick out it and I would have so much fun making it!!!
Your description of your love of the iTop makes me believe you have no hopes of being on the Imaginesce design team anytime soon...Too funny! I have similar thoughts about some of these tools, so I guess I won't be trying to make their team either! I'm sure we'll do just fine with all of our other toys! I do love how you put your flair into the negative space on your card and it was definitely a fun way to make the heart puffy! Thanks for sharing!

Christi said...

your handmade flair looks great!!! terrific job with that stamp set.

Geri said...

Adorable is right! The possibilities appear to be endless! Can hardly wait to see the rest of the new goodies!

Barb Ghig said...
