Colourful Flowers

Monday, May 30th, 2022

Hello crafters! Welcome to day 30 of the Random Act of Cardness events. Today the prompt word is “Colour”. You have probably noticed that I love colour, the brighter the better.

For my card today I have stencilled the base of the card using a Heffy Doodle stencil along with Squeezed Lemonade and Salvaged Patina.

In my mini Misti I then stamped the corner flowers from the Honey Bee stamp set Floral Vase, along with one of the dragonflies from the Honey Bee Dragonfly set using Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black.

To colour I used Copic markers in the following colours, working from the top down:

Flowers: RV25, RV04, RV02; Y18, Y19, Y35 and the leaves G05, G09, G17; Middle Flowers: B0000; BG53; BG45, BG57; R27, R17, R24; Leaves YG21; YG03; YG23; Bottom Flowers: YR01, YR02, YR65; R05, Y35, Y15; Leaves G05, G09, G17; and the Dragonfly is BG10, C3 and 100.

When all the pieces were coloured I die cut the pieces using the coordinating dies. I then styled the flowers and dragonfly, and attached them to the card front using foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Warm Breeze and die cut with the coordinating die affixing the sentiment to the card front using foam strips.

To finish up I applied Nuvo Shimmer pen to the dragonfly along with crystals from Studio Katia for some sparkle.

I hope you have enjoyed today’s card of Colours! Thank you for joining us.

Tuesday with Tara {take 349} Hello There!

Happy Tuesday & Hello There, Sweet Friends!

Today’s card uses a fun combo of products to make a sweet and simple card… florals by Hampton Art Stamps (Hello Beautiful set), Hello There from Bold Text #1 dies by Tim Holtz and the little sweet friend is from Honey Bee Stamps Bitty Buzzwords.  Of course, I’m still playing around with my new Distress color, so today you see a simple color combo of Distress Oxide Inks- Saltwater Taffy and Twisted Citron.

Of course, there’s more fun details like the stitched border from MFT, 3D foam squares and some lime sequins by Studio Katia!  I wish I could tell you where the pink card base came from, but I’m pretty impressed how well it matched the Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide ink!

I’m pretty pleased with this card… really want to play around with other sentiments from the die set in combo with stamped greetings!  Hope you like it too 🙂

Inky hugs,

Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 345} Blessed & Bling

Tuesday, March 29th, 2022

Happy Tuesday!  My inspiration for today’s card is the word for Day 30 on our Facebook Challenge group– Bling! I’m trying to slip creatively into spring mode, so I played with a few shades of Distress Oxide Ink for a fun splattered background with ink blending.  I then die cut some assorted sizes of the Tim Holtz Stacked Hexagons and played around with a layout for them on a mini slim (3.5×6″) panel I had cut out.

For the BLING- I used a glittery die cut word ‘blessed’ that I had leftover from one of my cards from earlier this month.  I wanted to use some tiny paper flowers I had, some of which have glittery petals, so I added some gold to their centers to tie it all together.  I trimmed white pearly card stock to layer onto my card base and finished everything off with some gold toned bling!  I know at a glance this is not a seriously blingy card, but trust me- the elements are all there 🙂

I love the soft looks you get ink blending with Distress Oxide Inks, even using vibrant colors!  It’s perfect for spring and all those little speckles have me craving Robin’s Eggs Candy!  Yum…

Hope you like my simple, blingy card!

Inky hugs,

Tara
