Tuesday with Tara {take 353} A Dream is a Wish

Happy Tuesday!  Something about the soft color palette and shimmery touches gives this card a dreamy feeling…

I used a few alternate (aka leftover) pieces from previous cards- the flowers were some I made when I did this card and the butterflies were part of my inky play session when I first got my hands on the Saltwater Taffy Distress Ink!  The multicolored background layer was just some fun color blending, and the cut out is a combination of the taffy ink with a shimmery coat of bronze mica spray.  So pretty!

I’ve used the cutout letters from one of the bold text dies to spell WISH, and layered a chit chat sticker over it.  They’re kinda perfect together!  I inked the sticker with Saltwater Taffy regular distress ink before adding it to my card, which I think really pops layered over the patterned paper by Vicki Boutin which was cut with one of my slimline stackable dies.

I finished off the card with a touch of Nuvo glitter glaze to add to the shimmer.  I just love the springy vibes this card has and it definitely seems to me like it would bring a smile to it’s recipient…and hopefully to you!

Inky hugs,

Tara

Keeping It Clean and Simple

Happy Victoria Day to our Canadian readers! I’m here with some inspiration for today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt: CAS. Clean and Simple is my go-to style, so I attempted to be “extra” CAS with today’s card:

 

 

 

This is my first time using an Anita Jeram stamp – this one is Back Card Bunny, but I chose to give him front-of-card status. (He has a matching die, as well.) Theoretically, this could be a one layer card, but since he’s coloured with Copics and there was a little bleed-through, I adhered my panel to a sand cardbase.

 

If you’re posting a CAS card on social media, be sure to tag it with #snschallenge – you’ll be in the running for a $50 gift certificate to the Scrap ‘n Stamp store!

 

Floral Fields

Hello crafters, Kia here with you today to share my Random Act of Cardness using prompt word “Dies”. For my card today I am using Tim Holtz Floral Field die.

I die cut the above flowers using Arches cold press watercolour paper, and to paint I am using Daniel Smith’s dot card, along with colours from the Ultimate Mixing Set.

My background is done again using Daniel Smith watercolours in Ultramarine Blue with Quinacridone Rose dropped in. The idea for the colours comes from a house in my neighbourhood whose garden has reds, oranges and a pop of yellow, along with green hedges. I think it is a fun mix of colours.

For my second card I used a Tim Holtz stencil for the background using Rainbow colours. I used distress oxide inks for the background.

To die cut the flowers I used Van Gogh black watercolour paper, which adds texture and is good and sturdy.

I used pink glitter ribbon where the join of the paper is from the stencil. I was concerned about that, but I think it works okay.
