Author name: Tara

Hi! I'm Tara and I've been creating and teaching classes in the paper crafting industry for 15 years in Western Canada. I closed my rubber stamp & scrapbook store in 2013 to get married & move to North Carolina, but my passion is still getting inky and sharing the love of this hobby wherever I can! I started out as a card maker, but over the years I have done it all- from cards & mini books, to scrapbooking & mixed media projects. I'm certified by both Ranger & Copic and I look forward to sharing some creative fun and maybe getting inky with you in one of my classes soon!

Tuesday with Tara {take 385} Love is Brewing

Happy Tuesday!  I’m sharing a twist on a throwback card today… You may have seen this card before, but it’s never been shared here on the SNS Blog!  LOL. 

I’ve used the Coffee House stamps by Anita Jeram together with Storyteller paper pad by Vicki Boutin.  I also pulled out my copic markers for the first time in a long time and there are smudges everywhere as evidence.  If you can just squint past the smudges, I hope you’ll like it!

These little mice (and this whole stamp set- which is full of cuteness you’re definitely going to see more of…) just make me smile, and are definitely relatable.  I feel this way about that first cup of coffee in the morning or about meeting up with a friend for a cup of chai.

Once again, sorry about the smudges- some weeks it’s a struggle just finding time to make anything and RE-making it was definitely not an option.  LOL. I think they are cute enough to compensate!

Inky hugs!

Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 384} A Paper Hug

Happy Tuesday!  Today I’m sharing a quick & easy mini slimline card inspired by the Paper Hug sentiment stamp by Picket Fence stamps!  I’ve paired the sentiment with this sweet snowman die cut by Penny Black, called Snowman Joy.   I die cut him out of watercolor card stock and added some subtle touches of color with watercolor pencils.

I was playing around with some watercolor paints recently, and painted this ombre panel on a scrap of watercolor card stock.  It was fun to play around with blending and ended up being a perfect background for my snowman!  I layered it simply on teal cardstock (it was literally a scrap that already had a torn edge).  Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide ink ended up being a beautiful match to my pieces, so the sentiment was stamped on white with it.  It’s simple & whimsical and I hope it brings a smile your way!

Inky hugs,

Tara
