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

Tuesday with Tara {take 374} Joy Birds

This card will look familiar if you participated in our Penny Black Inspiration Hop over at SNS last weekend!  (If you didn’t, it’s not too late! Start HERE & check out the fabulous makes by the rest of the team and be sure to leave a comments along the way & on my IG post for a chance to win!)  Today’s card is an ‘alternate’ for the card I shared during the hop, I’ve used the same design but different colors & coloring mediums!

I love the new Immense Joy die by Penny Black and immediately saw it as a frame for what I hoped would be quick & easy cards… paired with the sweet Holly Berry Birds stamp, it seemed a bit of an odd combination since both items essentially fill a card front.  I didn’t want to eliminate the pretty holly branches, so I chose to try my hand at the spotlight technique.  Since Kraft is my favorite neutral, I started there and added some bling with a glittery die cut.
It took some trial and error to get everything lined up… next time I’ll use my stamping platform to keep things straight!  But I did some quick coloring with Copic Markers on this one.  My other card can be seen on my personal blog here as well as on instagram!

If you’ve seen both cards… I’d love to know which is your personal favorite!  This is a card design that I could definitely see my self reproducing several times, once I get the spotlight angle perfected 😉

Inky hugs,

Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 372} Fall is in the air

Happy Tuesday!

I’m back to share another card I made with the Fall Calls for Lattes stamp set by Catherine Pooler, this one has all the apple cider vibes!  Yum!  There’s so many great stamps in this set, and for this card I created a simple background on a Kraft card using a variety of leaves and the apple stamp.  I stamped everything in a dark brown ink, then added a touch of a highlight & dimension with a lighter brown Copic marker.

I couldn’t decide between red or green for my apples, so I’ve used both colors for this fun card!  The little touch of book print adds a bit of a teacher vibe to it… and I know all the teachers would appreciate a little extra kindness today if they are working the day after Halloween!

The finishing touches on this card are a bit of bling, some Glossy Accents on the green apple and some 3D foam dots to pop up that colorful to-go cup!  Hope it makes you smile!

Be sure to join us right back here on the blog on Friday for our November hop… I’ve seen some peeks of the cards the girls are making and it’s going to be a great one!

Inky hugs,

Tara
