Tuesday with Tara {take 432} Wildflowers

You belong among the wildflowers.

Happy Tuesday!  Last week I got inky on my Crafty Live with the new Scorched Timber Distress, and I was determined to make something with one of my backgrounds for this week!   I kept things pretty simple and die cut one of the backgrounds (I believe this one features the two sprays together- Distress Spray Stain and Distress Oxide Spray) with my new Stitched Oblong STAX dies by MFT.  I love how the mix of the two sprays gives almost a dirty chalkboard effect.

I embossed a wildflowers sentiment (this is from an older Gina K set that it still in stock!) in white, then scattered a few mini brushstrokes flowers along one edge.  I’d pre-cut a variety of flowers in yellows & blue from some backgrounds so these were ready to go!

I added some subtle detail to the background with an Altenew stencil called “Leaf Bed” and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink, then decided to add it to a coordinating envelope as well!  I added a few sequins as a finishing touch…

I hope this brings a bit of sunshine to your day, especially if you’re experiencing the endless days of winter wherever you are…

Inky hugs,

Tuesday with Tara {take 398} Colorful Life

Happy Tuesday!

I did a LIVE demo on Facebook last Thursday featuring Vicki Boutin’s Ready-to-use Mixed Media Paper pad & ‘Just Add Color’ stamps by Gina K Designs.  I worked with a few coordinating colors of Distress Inks & a black ink pad.  The goal was to make some quick & simple cards with these gorgeous papers.

I shared one card on my Instagram yesterday, and it’s on my personal blog as well- please stop by one of those places to check it out 😉

This pretty card features on of the designed papers with gold foil accents- with the splashes of yellow it just screamed summertime for me, and I hope you like it too!  I die cut a few white pieces for the sentiments prior to the live, and this circle was a nice fit for the smaller paint swatch and some circles.  These background designs are a really fun way to add color quickly & easily!  I chose to tie it all together with a black card base & some black ribbon.  I think those dark elements really add nice contrast to the bright shades of yellow & pink!

Here’s a peek at the supplies I used (black ribbon & sequins aren’t pictured)!

This is a simple one layer ‘bonus’ card I made using one of the mixed media papers folded in half, with 1/2″ trimmed off so it will fit in an A2 envelope (like the pink one I set it on for this photo).  The design was in shades of pink, so I added to it a bit with more pink Distress Ink using the circles and small brushstroke stamp.  I finished it off with the small ‘hello’ stamped in black.

There’s so much potential in this paper pad, I think I’ll have fun creating with it!

Inky hugs,

Time To Recycle

Hi Everyone! It’s Susan and I’m here with a card for today’s Random Act of Cardness Challenge. I decided that since today is Earth Day I would make the prompt RECYCLE.

I love to take pieces of cardboard boxes and use them on cards are as covers for notebooks and mini scrapbook albums.

I cut a piece of Moonlit Fog with the largest die in the Lawn Fawn Small Rectangle Die Set and adhered it to a white card base. After removing the top layer from the piece of cardboard I sponged the edges with Icing on the Cake ink from Catherine Pooler Designs then adhered it to the card.

I stamped the Zen Butterfly from Lavinia with Nocturne ink onto some brown paper that was used for packing in an online order I received. I fussy cut the image and adhered it to the card using craft foam under the wings to pop them up but the body and antennas are adhered directly to the card.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things Beautiful Blessings, embossed with WOW Super Fine White Embossing Powder on Gina K Moonlit Fog card stock that I sponged the edges with Icing on the Cake ink and adhered directly to the card.

I finished the card with some clear gems in my stash.



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