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,

Tara

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
Susan

Happy Birthday

Hello all, Kia here with you today for Day 19 of the Random Act of Cardness challenge. Today’s prompt is “Pink”.

For my card I am using Gina K Designs Elegant Asters along with Sizzix’ Embossing Folder Quilted.

I ran the Quilted embossing folder through my Gemini Jr. using Neenah cardstock. For the smooshing I put down the colours on my work surface, starting with Spun Sugar, then Kitsch Flamingo and ending with Picked Raspberry.

I continued smooshing until I was happy with the look. For the final addition of the Picked Raspberry I spritzed with Perfect Pearls and water instead of just the water. This added a lovely shine to the background.

I then dried the piece using my heat gun and attached it to my Gina K Design card base using foam tape.

Moving on I stamped the butterfly first with VersaFine Clair ink in Glamorous, then with Nocturne. I then stamped the flower using Versamark embossing ink and heat embossed with Pink embossing powder.

Using the 66 Dot card I watercoloured the flower and butterfly using the Quinacridone Pink and Quinacridone Fuschia. To the flower centre I added Hansa Yellow medium.

I then die cut the pieces and styled them using my stylist. I stamped the sentiment using the VersaFine Clair ink in Glamorous, then arranged and attached the flower and butterfly with foam squares.

To finish I added a scattering a crystals and sequins.
