Tuesday with Tara {take 420} Snow Peaceful

Happy Tuesday!

It’s officially Christmas countdown time and for a pro-craft-inator like me, that means it’s full on Christmas card time!  Today that means playing with some of my new supplies- like this gorgeous Pierced Fancy Flakes A2 cover plate by Honey Bee!  I paired it with some snowflakes from my stash (these are by Memory Box, but aren’t available in the online store anymore) and a foiled sentiment using the new Stick & Shine Xmas Classics sentiments & Metallic foil by Penny Black!

As you can see, I die cut my snowflakes from some of the new Prism Whole Spectrum Glitter Cardstock- for this card I’ve used Sapphire & Chrome.   The circles feature Prism products as well- the Nesting Stitched Circle dies and the cardstock in dark blue and grey!

I tried to keep this card simple to showcase the gorgeous products, but covered up more of the background than I originally intended!  You’ll definitely see this background again soon 🙂

Inky hugs,


Tuesday with Tara {take 419} holly hugs

Happy Tuesday!

I’m sharing a throwback post today, since I am currently on vacation with family!  Enjoy!

Today’s card started out very simple and grew into a vintage collage that I had so much fun putting together!  I knew I wanted to work with ribbon, so a wreath is a perfect way to display one.  This little one from Tim Holtz’s Wreath & Snowflake die set is really cute and I’d never even cut it out before!  I chose to layer together two wreaths, one from a (not quite big enough) piece of inked cardstock and the other is solid green.  I did the same with the berry dies and it gave me a nice variety to work with and pair with the crinkly ribbon bow.

Last time I used this set, it was for our ‘snow much fun’ blog hop (you can see my card on instagram or my blog) and I used the same die cut ‘hugs’ sentiment!  I’d cut it twice since I wasn’t sure which way I wanted my layers to go, so today’s card seemed like a perfect chance to use it.

Honestly, the rest of the card just kinda came together as I flipped through paper pads and stamps that were nearby on my messy workspace (seriously, has anyone got tips how to clean this mess up without getting distracted by all the pretty things?)…

The library card is from Vicky Boutin, the holly stamp is by Tim Holtz and the rest are old wooden stamps from Art Impressions & Hero Arts I just love to throw in the mix sometimes.  I had fun adding in some metallic stickers & a touch of Nuvo glitter dots as well!  That background paper is some OLD Tim Holtz Kraft resist gorgeousness with some Rustic Wilderness Distress Ink over it.  I added a bit of a Distress Ink/ Distress Marker combo to add color to the holly on the library card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Inky hugs,


Tuesday with Tara {take 418} Immense Joy

Happy Tuesday!  Today I’m sharing a card I created last year, but never shared here on the SNS blog!  It features the fabulous Immense Joy die by Penny Black- I hope you like it!

I fell in love with this bold JOY die & 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 watercolor pencils on this one.  The stamp was inked in black and stamped both on the Kraft background panel and again on white, then die cut from the JOY die to get the best fit inside the open “O”.

I look forward to seeing what other stamped images will fit inside that big open space.  It’s so much fun to mix and match older & newer products, especially with Christmas when you have favorites that are only used once a year!

Inky hugs,
