Tuesday with Tara {take 423} Coffee for Christmas

Happy Tuesday!  It’s that time of year when I realize I have way more ideas for Christmas cards than I have time to make them… I should probably try to be one of those people who makes them all year for next years cards, then they might actually get sent out to people 🙂 I was finishing up some in progress cards and thinking about what I should post when I realized that this is my LAST Tuesday post before Christmas- yikes!   So, I’ve decided to share one I had ready to go and save more for Instagram shares this week.  Knowing me I’ll still be making them this weekend and will just have posts ready to go for next year!

This card came about when I was playing with shades of blue and found this big Lawn Fawn Merry Christmas I bought last year and didn’t get around to using… doesn’t it look fabulous cut from aquamarine glitter!?  I’ve got a variety of blues happening here, but the Lawn Fawn Knit Picky paper is a fun addition too.  I wanted to take some drinks from Catherine Pooler’s Fall Calls for Latte’s stamp set and winterize them- so inking this one in blues & adding a little snowflake to it seems to have done the trick.  I added a few more tiny snowflakes & pearls from this fun set of Sprinkletz, which was meant for shaker cards (& I will probably keep using well into January!)

Final touches are some small die cut snowflakes and sheer ribbon from my stash, plus a little sentiment from MFT that I believe is discontinued.  I think there’s some definite winter vibes happening here in this simple, whimsical card!  Hope you like it!

Inky hugs,

Tuesday with Tara {take 422} Christmas Sweater

Happy Tuesday!

I’ve been having fun creating backgrounds with the new Holiday Knit Texture Fade by Tim Holtz.  I inked the front of the embossing folder with some Distress Oxide Ink (for this card I’ve used Rustic Wilderness) and didn’t do much else besides add a bit of ink to the edges!  I embossed a panel I had pre-cut to give me an even border around the card front.

For this card, I paired my background with some greenery from the Festive Gatherings die set and added touches of glitter & gold.  I’ve once again used a foiled sentiment using the new Stick & Shine Xmas Classics sentiments Metallic foil by Penny Black!  I think I’ll be using these on quite a few of my cards this year (yes, I’m one of those people who is still making them…). Don’t you love the shimmering touches and the texture on the background?  I’ve also used one of the Nesting Stitched Circle dies by Prism Studio- there’s so many sizes they are perfect for almost everything, and the stitched edge gives a nice nod to the sweater pattern!

For a bit of contrast I tied my greenery with a small bit of red jute string.  It’s a nice finishing touch, I think!

Inky hugs,
