Tuesday with Tara {take 376} Snowy Bird

Happy Tuesday!  I’m sharing another festive BIRD card today (I promise I’ll have a different ‘theme’ next week- LOL), using the same “cardinal” MFT set as last week, with the addition of a snowflake background image by Woodware!  This snowy stamp is both cute and affordable (only 6 bucks!) and is a fabulous background for so many different images.  It’s a smaller image, but repeats easily- I’ve stamped it twice for the snowy panel on this card!

I chose to work with blues today- stamping the snowflakes in Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide Ink.  I colored the little bird & branch with my Copics in blues & browns as well, to tie everything together with the Kraft card base as well.  The finishing touch on the card was some little wooden snowflakes I found in my stash- they’re such a fun element I’m kinda sad to use them because I’m getting to the end of my supply!

It’s a simple, but I think sweet little card!  I hope you like it 🙂

Inky hugs,

Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 375} Merry Bird

There’s just something about birds at Christmas- and this cutie is from a sweet set by MFT.  The set is called “Christmas Cardinals” but I took some creative license with my colors on this one, choosing to make his hat red instead!  I kept this card simple, pairing my bird with a bold, glittery ‘Merry‘ sentiment by Tim Holtz.

I layered the two elements over a book print circle (this one cut from an old technical manual I found) on a simple, clean white card.  A few pieces of bling finish it off and a bit of Nuvo glitter on the hat ties all the sparkly elements together!

This card might be a touch more than your basic CAS card, but it’s how I do CAS so I’m gonna say it counts!  I hope you like it 🙂

Inky hugs,

Tara

Red Mittens

I have named this card Red Mittens. Kia here with you today to share Red Mittens, which is an older stamp by Penny Black. I am using another older stamp, also by Penny Black called Berry Bramble.

I decided for this card that I would use Tombow markers for my colour, using only 4 markers, which I have linked to below. Several years back I cut this set to separate the mittens, as I wanted to use them differently. When perusing Facebook today I saw a card by Michelin Jourdain, and loved how she hung the mittens, hence I did my version.

                                   When I finished colouring the berries and the mittens I painted on Tumbled Glass oxide ink using a damp paint brush. I then fussy cut the left mitten, styled it and arranged on the card. In my Misti I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Blue Belle, with the joy done using VersaFine Clair Ink in Tulip.

I attached the piece to a Gina K Design Red Velvet card base, and added a bunch of splatters using Winsor Newton Gouache.

It was fun giving some love to my older stamps. I like to bring them out every now and then, and show them off. I do hope you have enjoyed this trip down memory lane.
