Tuesday with Tara {take 335} Simple Love

Tuesday, January 25th, 2022

Happy Tuesday!

I was inspired by a card & challenge our former design team member, Nancy, shared on Instagram to make a card with no layers a big bold sentiment!  I almost had two cards that fit the challenge, until an ink smudge forced me to trim & layer 🙂

Both card were started with a heart stencil I made just by using the outline of a die cut shape as my frame to blend ink through.  I’ve used a mixture of Kitsch Flamingo & Abandoned Coral Distress Inks.   For this first card, I stamped over it a sentiment I pieced together from the Bitty Buzzwords stamp set combined with a Valentine’s Day greeting.  A big black smudge forced me to trim it down and layer it onto a red card base, but I like the extra bit of color it gives!

The second card was the same technique, just a single sentiment from Picket Fence “Happiness Belongs to You” set.  Both cards have a few bits of bling to finish everything off!

They’re sweet and simple… hope you have a lovely day!

Inky hugs,

Tara

Random Act of Cardness Day 12 – Stencils

Sunday, December 12th, 2021

Hi Everyone!

I hope you’re having a fun weekend. It’s Susan and I’m here to share some fun using the prompt from today’s Random Act of Cardness, That prompt is Stencils. I chose to use three different stencils – one was slimline and two were 6×6 – and make three slimline cards with them. I have video showing the process with each stencil but not how I made the cards. The video would’ve been too long if I did that too.

To watch the video please click HERE.

Below are the cards I made. If you have any questions about any of them, please leave me a comment here or on my YouTube channel and I will get back to you asap.

The first card uses the Wave to Me Stencil from Heffy Doodle. I paired it with the Polar Bear Pals from MFT,  the Full of Joy Stamp Set from C&9th, and the cloud stencil from MFT. The snowflakes are from the Avery Elle Snow Fun Stamp Set. I colored the images in with Tombow markers.

The second card uses the Heffy Doodle Broad Strokes Stencil and the circles I cut from the card above. The sentiment  and the snowflakes are from the Beautiful Baubles Add Ons from Taylored Expressions. I used some markers to draw the rest of the snowman and his hat.

The last card uses the Festive Friends from C&9th and Avery Elle’s Snow Fun for the snowflakes. I colored the image in with the same Distress Oxides I used on the panel plus the Broken China Distress Oxide. The snow is just torn card stock.

Happy Stampin’
and thanks so much for visiting!
Stay Safe Everyone!!

I’m Dreaming of a White…

Monday, November 29th, 2021

… martini? 😀  Today’s Random Act of Cardness prompt on the Scrap ‘n Stamp challenge page is WHITE! Here’s my take on a white card:

 

 

I don’t know about you, but some days when the holiday crunch is getting to me, this might just about sum up how I feel. 😀  As a festive card, I wanted lots of sparkle, so I started off with a Picket Fence martini stencil and some moonstone Nuvo glimmer paste. While that dried, I cut the My Favorite Things martini glass from some white glitter cardstock as well as two more from regular cardstock so I could layer them together. I also added a couple of layers to the MFT sassy sentiment, which I embossed with some sparkle embossing powder. I think we all know how tricky shine is to photograph, but this close-up at least gives a hint:

 

 

If you’re still working on holiday cards, I hope you’ll consider making a white card of your own, and adding it to the challenge page for a chance to win some Scrap ‘n Stamp spending money! Thanks for checking in today.
