Marvelous Mom Weekly - Terri Moore - Cards & Moore by Terri

There might be a lot stores that sells card on Etsy, but I think Terri Moore's store (Cards & Moore by Terri) is especially unique and beautiful. You can see that she spent a tremedous amount of time and effort on each item to make it truly special. In her store, you will find all kinds of paper products, from cards to boxes to bookmarks. But she also has many other talents too and you will find out what the are with her feature below!

Etsymom: Terri, Cards & Moore by Terri (

Terri, Her Family, Work and Inspirations:
My name is Terri Moore and I live in Denver, Co where I was born and raised. My husband and I have an 11 year old daughter who I home school. We also have 2 fur kids as well. Sophie a 4 year old black lab mix and Lily a 3 yr old Westie. I have been doing nails out of my home for over 15 years now specializing in hand painted nail art. I have also always been a very artistic person who loves using bright colors in my work. I got into stamping about 5 years ago when an online friend of mine sent me some clear stamps and I was hooked. My husband created a website for me to try and sell my cards from shortly thereafter but about a year later I heard about Etsy and started a shop there instead. I have now expanded to selling boxes, bags, journals and anything else that can be stamped on as well. My main goal is to make more than just an average card. I want my items to be able to be used and enjoyed for many years to come.

I find a lot of inspiration for my creations from challenges and other stampers. I also find inspiration from catalogs and things around me too.

Super Talented Mom:
Some of my other hobbies include knitting, crocheting, quilting, cooking/baking, watch reality TV shows and Food Network and read biographies about famous people. I also love to read People magazine weekly as well.

Where else to find Terri:
I also have a blog where I share my work and a technique video every month.

I am on twitter and Facebook too

Beautiful Creations:

Some of my favorite items in my shop right now are:

Spring Flower Pack

I was inspired to make this piece from some flowers I saw on someone’s blog. I especially like the bright colors and how the flowers can be used. There is also a place to add a packet of seeds or a gift card too.

Beautiful Butterfly Box

I got the idea for this design from a shirt one of my daughters friends was wearing. It came out exactly how I envisioned it too.

Lollipop flower card

I have always loved the idea of including gifts with my cards. I thought this was a great way to incorporate the candy.

Mini Lilly Pulitzer Turtle Rag Bag

This would be a great bag for a child to carry their favorite stuffed animal in. It would also make a great little bag for moms too.
