Tuesday with Tara {take 359} Bookmarks!

Happy Tuesday, friends!

I’m sure I’m not the only person who looks forward to summertime reading!  I used to read so much when I was younger, but I find these days I really have to make an effort and take time to read.  All too often, when I finally do take the time I end up using a piece of junk mail or a receipt for my bookmark.  Friends, we can do better than that!  ha!

Today I’m sharing some sweet & simple bookmarks I stamped.  I paired this little mouse by Anita Jeram (not currently in the online store- sorry!) with some paint splatters & a swoosh from this fun crafty set by Taylored Expressions.  I stamped the painty bits in Distress Oxide Ink, picking the colors based on the scraps of ribbon I could easily find on my work space to match with them!  Here I’ve used Mustard Seed and Wilted Violet.  Lastly, the mice were quickly colored in with some watercolor pencils and honestly, it’s as simple as that!

The stamp set comes with some cute little sentiments that I added to the bookmarks as well.   Before stamping, I cut the bookmarks out of some mini slimline stackables stitched dies by Lawn Fawn, and they are perfect for this!

Here’s a closer look at my cute little bookmarks!  Now I just need to make the time to use them…

Inky hugs,

Tara

Sundae Funday

Hi Everyone!! It’s Susan and I’m here with a card for today’s Random Act of Cardness Challenge. Can you guess what the prompt is by my card? It’s ICE CREAM!! Now that the weather is starting to warm up where I live I’m thinking I’m going to be craving ice cream. I rarely eat it but sometimes a soft serve vanilla ice cream cone from DQ is a must have.

 

I used the Sundae Funday Stamp Set from Colorado Craft Company. It’s a small set but super cute and fun to play with and it has a coordinating die too. I stamped it on a Hampton Arts White tag and two more times on some white card stock. I just wanted the sundae portion so I cut that out and colored everything in with a mixture of copics and Altenew markers. I colored the ice cream to be chocolate, strawberry and caramel using Altenew markers.  I used Copic N0 and N2 on the bunny and an Altenew blue on the sundae glasses.

 

I’ve had the black & white piece of paper with the embossed happy adhered to it on my desk for weeks now and suddenly today I decided it would be great for this card. Because I kept the coloring very simple on this card I decided to add a fun and festive background. I used a piece from a Catherine Pooler Designs pack I had in my stash.

I layered everything onto a white card base then added some red twine, a few sequins and some sparkle to the ice cream with a glitter pen to finish this card.

 

Thanks so much for spending some of your day with me.

Take care,

Susan

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!
