Tuesday with Tara {take 431} Cardinals in love

Happy Tuesday!

It feels like the new year just started, but here we are with Valentine’s Day right around the corner already!  I’ve got one more card to share with you that can be used for the occasion, though I left a sentiment off it so it could also be used for an anniversary or just a thinking of you card for a bird lover.

I created a gate fold A2 card, scoring it at 2.125 from each end so they meet in the center.  On the left panel, I added a strip of patterned paper with a text print from my current favorite 6×6 pad.

I really wanted to use this Cardinal Pair stamp by Penny Black at Christmas, but never got around to it… so I was pleased that die cutting it in a heart shape allowed me to cut out or hide the ornaments.  I simply stamped it in black ink and then inked the edges with Saltwater Taffy Distress Ink.  I had pre-made some mini Brushstroke Flowers in shades of coral, so I decided to use them along with some crinkle ribbon I had dyed to match.

Because I had the flowers pre-made, this card went together fairly quickly!  Here’s one more photo with my ribbon untied so you can see the gatefold.

This card would be really pretty with red flowers as well, especially if you colored the cardinals in their shades of red & brown!

I hope you enjoy it!  Have a wonderful week and Valentine’s Day, however you celebrate it (or Wednesday if you don’t).

Inky hugs,

Tuesday with Tara {take 422} Christmas Sweater

Happy Tuesday!

I’ve been having fun creating backgrounds with the new Holiday Knit Texture Fade by Tim Holtz.  I inked the front of the embossing folder with some Distress Oxide Ink (for this card I’ve used Rustic Wilderness) and didn’t do much else besides add a bit of ink to the edges!  I embossed a panel I had pre-cut to give me an even border around the card front.

For this card, I paired my background with some greenery from the Festive Gatherings die set and added touches of glitter & gold.  I’ve once again used a foiled sentiment using the new Stick & Shine Xmas Classics sentiments Metallic foil by Penny Black!  I think I’ll be using these on quite a few of my cards this year (yes, I’m one of those people who is still making them…). Don’t you love the shimmering touches and the texture on the background?  I’ve also used one of the Nesting Stitched Circle dies by Prism Studio- there’s so many sizes they are perfect for almost everything, and the stitched edge gives a nice nod to the sweater pattern!

For a bit of contrast I tied my greenery with a small bit of red jute string.  It’s a nice finishing touch, I think!

Inky hugs,

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,
