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,


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,


Tuesday with Tara {take 373} Poppy Hugs

I’m patiently waiting to have the new Lumberjack Plaid Distress Ink to play with… so I pulled out a few red-ish shades (mostly Crackling Campfire & Fired Brick, plus a bit of Kitsch Flamingo & Wilted Violet on some pieces.  The green is all Peeled paint) to create some poppy-like flowers with some of the smaller blooms in the Brushstoke Flowers #2 & #3 die sets by Tim Holtz.

These smaller blossoms are a nice addition to a standout sentiment like the large Twiggy Hugs by Memory Box I’ve used here.  I really like how nicely they surrounded it on the book print panel. I don’t know about you, but I’m getting some poppy vibes!  This card will be a perfect Thinking of you/sympathy card for this time of year… one of those ones you hate to have to send!  I played around with adding more layers, but kept it simple so the details stand out.

I even tried my hand at a reel on IG for this card, so we will see what kind of views that one gets!  LOL

Inky hugs,
