World Card Making Day Stampin' Up! Blog Hop

Welcome to our World Card Making Day Blog Hop using current Stampin' Up!® Products. This is such a fantastic way to celebrate this event with lots of amazing inspiration for you. You are currently visiting my blog - (Terri Takashige) in the (United States) and you will be visiting lots of different places in your hop today. There is a list at the end of the page which will help you to move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing projects!

I used Crumb Cake as my card base, with a layer of Whisper White and a layer of Crumb Cake stamped with the scroll from the Tuscan Vineyard stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I also used the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits (my current favorite!).  I had the word "hope" sitting on my desk and decided it needed to go on this card too (why not?).  The dandelions in the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack make this card complete.  Of course, I had to add some Wink of Stella Clear on the white flower and the dandelions, but it's hard to see in the picture. 

Every day should be World Card Making Day!  The look and smile someone has when they receive a handmade card is priceless.

Thanks for visiting my blog today, there are so many more amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss. Remember that currently you are at my blog - Terri Takashige, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list.

Holiday Catalog Samplers!

Hello Friends!

I love making 8" x 8" samplers!  It's like an extra large card.

First the Halloween sampler:

Then the holiday sampler:

Isn't the Grinch adorable? I saw him on a card by Connie Babbert and knew I had to try it.  You can see Connie's card here:

ICS Blog Hop Technique Time


Welcome to the September ICS Blog Hop.  Since it's back to school this month, it's all about teaching techniques.

I pulled out an oldie but a goody. It's called Triple Time Stamping.  The illusion is in the layers.

I used the following Stampin' Up! products for this card:

Emerald Envy and Whisper White Cardstock
Flower Patch Stamp Set
Flower Fair Framelits
Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo and Emerald Envy Ink Pads
Emerald Envy 3/8" Ruched Ribbon
Rhinestone Basic Jewels
Stampin' Dimensionals

Measurements for Layers:

Light Cardstock (for stamping):
2" x 3 1/4"
3" x 4 1/4"
4" x 5 1/4"

Darker Cardstock (for layering):
2 1/4" x 3 1/2"
3 1/4" x 4 1/2"
5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" (this is your A2 card base)


1. Tack light color pieces together (lightly).
2. Stamp.
3. Adhere each lighter stamped layer to it's corresponding darker color by size.
4. Layer with dimensionals.
5. Embellish as you wish.

Thank you for stopping by my blog on the hop today!  Now it's time to check out Claudia's technique!  She's got something great in store for us!

Have a great day!
