Father’s Day card for my Father-in-Law


Hi There and Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads out there! We went over to visit my father-in-law and family tonight and we knew ahead of time that he was going to BBQ. I thought it would be fun to make him this BBQ-ing Dragon from High Hopes Stamps and create my own sentiment inside.

Inside the card:

Stamped image High Hopes Rubber Stamps “Flame Boilin” – Q104 with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card Cardstock.

Coloured image with Copic markers.

Die cut – Die-namics – Exclusive Designs from My Favorite Things – MFT-652 – Cross-Stitch Rectangle ST and went around with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Black Soot.

Stamped background with High Hopes Rubber Stamps “Flame Boilin” – Q104 and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Then used Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Fossilized Amber, Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Fired Brick and Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Spiced Marmalade. I was hoping to make the background look like a huge flame.

Edging around card – Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Candied Apple

My father-in-law loved his card! Hope you do too!

Sympathy Card


Hi There,

Back again to share another Sympathy card that I made using stamps and dies from My Creative Time – My Thoughts are With You and My Creative Time -Stitched Rectangular Frames and More.

I can’t take credit for the original design, as I was inspired by a card made by Brigit Mann who created a similar card during the blog hop for this stamp set back in July, 2015.

Sympathy-Card---Teresa

I coloured in all of the flowers and stems with Spectrum Noir markers. To give the water effect to the jar, I used Parchment Paper – Shaded Blue – Code 61582. I then used a stylus on the back of the paper to put in the jar lines like the actual stamp. To get the depth of the jar, I used some fun foam which I cut out with the die cut so that it would be the same shape and give the shaker a nice solid enclosure. Lastly, I added in some sequence to fill the bottom of the jar.

Background paper is from My Mind’s Eye – Summer Papers – Quite Contrary by Jen Allyson and Roe Pearn.

Hope you like it!
