Day 5 {Tuesday with Tara take 378} Impression Obsession!

Happy Tuesday! I hope you’re enjoying the 12 Days of Christmas sale, it’s been fun seeing the fresh inspiration daily and I love seeing so many fantastic companies featured!  Today I get to feature a company that’s been around for a really long time.  They were among the first I discovered when I began stamping and their beautiful designs, especially sentiments, have been favorites for me!  (A quick search confirms it for me- the company started in 1998, so not long after I began making cards!)

I was really excited when I started seeing Classic Pooh designs become stamps this year, and IO is one of the few companies doing it!  I’ve always had a soft spot for Eeyore so this set captured my heart.  It also has beautiful sentiments to coordinate- though it was tricky fitting one on the front of my card with this large image.

This is quite a simple 5.5×5.5″ card, with the focal image stamped in black on the smooth side of some watercolor card stock.   I colored loosely with watercolor pencil crayons and then worked on the base of the card while it dried.  I’ve used a snowflake stencil & Speckled Egg Distress Inks for the base card (Distress Oxide Spray on the Kraft base and Distress Ink for the edges around the image).    The patterned paper layer is from the sweet Knit Picky 6×6 pad by Lawn Fawn.    The sweet red paper bow was die cut from the Tim Holtz Christmas “Vault” set last year.

I had to do some careful partial inking of my sentiment to fit what I could on the card front… but I’ve included my favorite sentiment from the set on the inside of the card!

As part of the 12 Days of Christmas sale, IO will be 25% off throughout the sale period!  Go check out some of their beautiful designs, you’re sure to add some classics to your stamp collection!

Inky hugs,

Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 377} Hello Winter Throwback

Happy Tuesday!  I’m sharing a throwback post from last year- and as luck would have it, all the main elements I used on my card are in stock & available from SNS today!

Today’s card will probably seem very non-traditional, but it really depicts the kind of winter I see most of the time since I’ve moved south to North Carolina!  I’m featuring the new Tim Holtz Festive Words dies paired with Cardinals dies by Impression Obsession over a background of Sketch Greenery stamped in assorted shades of green Distress Ink.  I used a mix of regular & oxide inks, misted with water on watercolor Cardstock to create a soft background.

My photo background is also the inspiration for the background of the card.  I went to a wreath making workshop with a friend and was able to use a large variety of different greenery to create a gorgeous fresh wreath for the holidays.  I love the mix of textures and colors together!

There’s a touch of shimmer mixed with all the earthy vibes, like a hint of fresh snow… with white pearlescent text and sequins scattered around.  Two of the cardinals are resting on the greeting while the third one, taking flight, is raised with a foam square.

I had a small piece of the background left after making my card, so I made a coordinating gift tag using the smaller ‘joy’ sentiment from the set.  I love the mix of the elegant background and the whimsical font of the greeting together!

I hope you like it!  I sure had fun making them!
Inky hugs,
Tara
