Tuesday with Tara {take 400} Some Faves!

Happy Tuesday!  Today as I was getting ready to share a new card, I realized that I’ve reached another milestone- 400 Tuesday with Tara blog posts here on Scrap ‘N Stamp!    As I’ve done previously when I hit these milestones, I like to reflect back on the last 100 posts and share a few of my favorites with you!  These 100 posts take us back a little over 2 years, and while there haven’t been quite 100 new cards in that time, there’s plenty to choose from!   If you click on the title for each image it’ll take you back to my original blog post.  Enjoy!

hey patina

This one had such a fun patina background and I just had fun with the sentiment & images as well!

Mod Cactus

I shared two fun cards with these Mod Cactus stamps in this post- the designs are simple, but super fun with these great stamps!

Coffee Obsessed

I love coffee themed stamps- and cards, of course!  Anita Jeram’s designs have become some of my favorites, as well!

Painted Birds

I think this was the first of many projects I’ve shared (and still do!) featuring the bird silhouette dies by Tim Holtz.  Love them!

Crackle Fun

These cards are just fun- the mini slimline size, the bright colors and the fun crackle texture!

Coffee, Craft, Repeat

This one is pretty recent, but it makes me smile.  I made it in two fun color schemes, but am sharing this one because I noticed a pattern among my choices.  LOL.

I’m sure I could share so many more (and I’ve got a list started of favorite Christmas projects to share!) but I hope it gives you a peek at the variety of cards I’ve been sharing on my Tuesday posts!  Thanks for joining me on the journey!

Inky hugs,


Seas the Day

Hello to you. Kia here with you today to share this fabulous stamp and die set by Colorado Craft Company, along with the background stencil by Gina K Designs. To get a bit of a different look for this card I first did smooshing using Neenah cardstock and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide along with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide inks.

Putting down the dry background piece on my work surface I added the stencil over the piece securing it in place. Using a domed foam blending tool along with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink I pounced the tool up and down lightly to fill the card piece with ink, which created beautiful dimensions and further textures. While I had the tools out I also did a piece just using the stencil for the inside of my card.

In my mini Misti using Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black I stamped the images, then proceeded to colour using Copic markers in the following colours: The Birds B000, B41, B26 and Y13, R17 on the beaks. The posts are done using E42, E47 and Y19 with C00 and C1 on the Starfish along with B26 dots.

Using the coordinating die, I die cut the pieces with my Gemini Jr. machine. I attached the background piece to my card front using Art Glitter glue, along with the piece I did for the card inside. On the inside piece I also stamped using the beautiful sentiment included in the set.

On the card front I attached the die cut piece using foam strips, including the extra Starfish. I then stamped the sentiment “Seas the Day” using VersaFine Clair ink in Blue Belle.

To finish with a bit of sparkle I added Pinkfresh gems in Ombre, being silver and blue gems, which are so pretty.

I hope you have enjoyed this card today, and look forward to seeing you next Friday.



Sweet Friend

Hello crafty friends, Kia here with you today to share this card called “Sweet Friend”, which is featuring Altenew’s Precious Peony stamps set. This is such a beautiful set, which always makes it fun to colour. I used two of the stamps from the set for this design, and only 5 Copic markers for colour. Using such a small number of Copic’s was a first for me, but I love the results.

I picked two of the stamp images from the set to colour. The Copic colours for the flowers are R35 and R27, and for the leaves YG05, YG06 and YG07.

Once I finished with the colouring I cut the images out, and set them aside. Moving on to the background I opted to use an embossing folder, which is also from Altenew called Garden Harmony and Hammermill cardstock. I spritzed both side of the card before running through my machine.

To put it all together I picked a Gina K Design cardstock called Red Hot for my card base. Using glue I attached the embossed piece to my card front. I then attached the right side image using glue. To the left image I added foam squares before attaching it resting over the opposite flower. I then finished my card with a sentiment from Pinkfresh Design called Heart Smiles.

For the inside of my card I again embossed another piece of Hammermill card, gluing it in place. I then stamped a sentiment also from the Pinkfresh Heart Smiles stamp set, and went around the edges of the piece using a Copic marker, which I also did for the sentiment on the front of the card.

Thank you for visiting today. I hope you have enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it. I wll be back next week with another card made from this set. See you then.
