Tuesday with Tara {take 23}

Happy Tuesday!  Are you starting to feel the Christmas spirit all around you?  I’ve been listening to holiday tunes, seeing people wearing (ugly?) Christmas sweaters and am starting my Christmas decorating and baking…

Today I’ve got two cards for you once again, this time they both feature the same die by Dee’s Distinctively, the Christmas Stacker Tree!  I fell in love with this die when I first saw it, it’s a lot of fun to play with and makes for easy, whimsical cards!

First up is a card featuring the die cut from paper inked up with Distress Ink over an embossed pearl background.  A kraft tag with a lovely sentiment (by Memory Box) stamped in black finish it off.  This card was very simple, but I really love it… it’s fun to play around with different combination of green inks (oooh… imagine adding the new Lucky Clover ink into the mix!)

Alright, next is a more ‘traditional’ colored card, which took much of it’s inspiration from patterned paper:

Pretty sure these were papers by BoBunny from several years ago… love those whimsical trees!  The sentiment from this card is from on of Tim Holtz’s Sizzix striplets dies.  Lots of good stuff on those!

Anywho, there you have two very different cards with the same fabulous die!  I hope it inspires you to create something similar yourself!

Have a very creative Tuesday!

Inky hugs,

Tara
