Hello, Friend!


I just love the color purple, especially when it it’s paired with white! This Concord Crush Designer Series Paper was added to Whisper White Card Stock to make a simple, but pretty card for the Challenge over at 365 Cards. They have a different challenge every day, so if you ever get in a funk and are at a loss for ideas, that is the place to go.

The flower was punched out using the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch. This is an awesome punch that will cut out 3 different shapes! I added a Designer Printed Brad and some Hemp Twine to the flower and tied it on the white satin bow. I backed it with a piece of designer paper which had been cut out with the Decorative Label Punch. Easy-Peasy!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. Terry


E is for Everything


I’m home from Maine now and I managed to bring back a cold with me, so I haven’t been doing too much. I did manage to make a couple of cards for some challenges. This card was made for the CPS-Card Challenge #241.

I used my favorite Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up! again-Spice Cake! I used 3 of the designs out of the pack. This time I used Pool Party and Chocolate Chip Card Stock along with it.

I stamped one of the images from the Four Frames Stamp Set in Chocolate Chip Ink on the Pool Party CS and punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch.

The sentiment on the tag is from the Occasions Alphabet Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! The set contains 26 stamps, one for each letter of the alphabet and a sentiment to go with it. It’s a very handy set!

I added a piece of Victoria Vintage Trim and 3 Basic Pearls to the card front.Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. Terry

The Willow-Wren and the Bear


The challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp is to get inspiration from a Fairy Tale or Nursery Rhyme. When I was teaching, I loved to read Fairy Tales by the Grimm Brothers to my students and The Willow-Wren and the Bear was one of my favorites.  

So, I had to use my Bird Builder Punch once again! (If you are new to my website and you look around, you will see that I love birds!) The Early Espresso Card Stock represents the bear, the red button-the fox, the vintage trim – the queen, and the bird-the King of the Birds. I even used a fancy flourish to represent the kingdom. I’ve made cards like this before in different colors, but this one is my favorite because there’s an underlying story behind it! Hope you like it as much as I do. this was such a fun challenge!

Candle Wraps Make Great Handmade Christmas Gifts!


This is a candle wrap I made for a set of short candle pillars. These are so fast and easy to make and they make great gifts! You can do them for any season or holiday and make them any size you need.

Directions: I took a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and cut it so it fit around the candle holder with about 1/2″ extra. I rolled it with the Sparkle and Shine Jumbo Stampin’ Wheel (116542) using Real Red Ink. The Scallop Circles where punched out of Garden Green CS with the2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch(118874) and a dot of glitter was added to each scallop. The ornaments were cut out of Designer Paper (not sure from were because I’ve had it a long time) with the Ornament Punch(119847). I put Sticky Strip along the top of the Whisper White CS and added a strip of dotted ribbon the length of the card stock. Then I placed another strip along the side where the card stock overlaps in the back of the candle holder. The scallop circles were adhered to the front of the candle wrap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the ornaments were adhered to them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I put a piece of Hemp Twine through the clasp of a small, clay Gingerbread Man ornament and tied it around the wrap, on top of the ribbon. It only took about 10 minutes and I was finished! I hope you give these candle wraps a try.

All the items in bold are Stampin’ Up. Go to my online store to order everything you need to make these candle wraps by clicking on the “Order Stampin’ Up! Online” Button in the right-hand column.

I am entering these in The Paper Players Red and Green Challenge #68 this week.

So many of my customers have told me that they would love to purchase the new ribbon offered in the new catalog by Stampin’ Up! but don’t want to buy a whole roll. So, I have decided to try a ribbon share. This is my first attempt.
I love all the new ribbons in the brand new Stampin’Up! catalog but I have chosen only 3 styles and all colors in these 3 styles in this first share.
Each participant will receive 34 yards of ribbon.

I will do these shares in groups of 5. You will receive 2 yards of each ribbon for a total of 34 yards.

This ribbon share is only available to US addresses.

Email me at tduncan088@gmail.com with your interest in this share. When I have 5 people I will confirm your ribbon share. The share must be paid for in advance so I will send you a Paypal Invoice. When I receive payment from the 5 participants, then I will place the order, divvy it up, and get your shares to you. Shipping is included in this price.

You may order more than one share if you need more than 2 yards.

Thank you and please email me with any questions you have
