Design Team Monday: Lori Tecler

Welcome to Monday, everyone!  It's Taylor here today, sharing a few cards I spotted recently on Lori Tecler's blog.  Wow she's been cranking out fabulous cards lately!

First up is this darling Paper Smooches card.  Lori used the fun Happy Camper set paired with some October Afternoon patterned paper.  Other products available in the store include: X-Press White Copic blending cardstock, Tsukineko Memento inks (Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa), Copic markers ((E23, E25, E13, E33), Divine Twine Green Apple baker’s twine, and Sticky Thumb dimensional dots.

How fun is this Retro Hello card, using the Perpetual Bliss set from Paper Smooches?  Lori added a sentiment from the Chit Chat set as well.  The green patterned paper is from Jillibean Soup; she once again colored on Xpress White cardstock using Copic markers (YG21, YG91, YG93, YG95, BG0000, BG000, C3).

Finally, her stunning card with Technique Tuesday's Bright Idea set really stopped me in my tracks.  I really love the pink and yellow color scheme, pulled from the My Mind's Eye patterned paper.  It's perfectly accented by the gray ink, too. Lori used a bit of Glossy Accents over the bulb, which when combined with the Kaisercraft bling completely adds to the fun factor on this card!

Make sure you check in tomorrow - we have an exciting announcement planned!

For my project, I altered a white paper lunch bag into a treat bag.  I covered the front and back with black cardstock, using some i {stick} papers redline tape, folded over about 2 inches of the top and covered it with orange cardstock, with the edge cut with the Classic Ric Rac Edgeabilities.  Then I added the bat paper from Doodlebug Haunted Manor 12x12 Collection Kit and two of the tag embellishments from the kit and some reversible silver/black ribbon.  I paper pieced the Paper Smooches Spookalicious cutie little vampire’s cape with some back on black chevron paper,also from the kit, colored him with Copics and popped him up on some of my favorite dimensional dots.  Lastly I added some gorgeous iridescent Zva bling – this one and this one.  I closed the bag with a Velcro dot from my stash so it’s reusable.
From here, you're visiting Amy Sheffer, IHP guest designer for the month. Thanks for visiting, and enjoy the hop! We hope to see you and your creations this week on Paper Craft Planet!
