Tuesday with Tara {take 392} Birthday Birds

Since I’m inspired by our Windows of Wonder Inspiration Hop theme, I thought I’d share another window themed card!  This is another mini slim- a gatefold card that measures 3.5×6″ and features frames from the Picket Fence Slimline System, together with Tim Holtz Silhouette birds.

As you can see, I actually have two cards to share… one of which was completed during my Facebook Crafty Live last Saturday!

I’ve used the stitched frame for the front (open left) panel and the bare tree/branches die for the middle (open right) panel.  Behind them both I’ve attached a slightly larger die cut square, which was inked to resemble the sunny sky.  A die cut bird is perched on the branch, colored up in bold red.

I die cut & scored the panels in advance, then completed the card on a Facebook live video, which I’ll link to below- I’d love to have you watch it!

Hopefully you were able to catch the replay of the live! If it doesn’t show up embedded in this post, please click here to see it on Facebook 🙂

I’ve included a few more photos of the open card on my personal blog, if you’d like a closer look!

Thanks for stopping by!

Inky hugs,

Sentiments Only

Hi Everyone and welcome to another Random Acts of Cardness Challenge. I’m Susan and my prompt for today is Sentiments Only. I can pretty much guarantee that the first thing I decide on when making a card is the image I’m going to use which is why I wanted to challenge myself and all of you, because I think most people are like this, is to only use sentiments on their projects.

I started by going through my stamp stash and pulling out sets with sentiments. I quickly noticed I had a group that would work together so that’s what I used. I started with the hello because I knew I was going to color that one in and make it a focus. Then I added stamps around that one keeping it in somewhat of a square – the top one is poking out a little bit but that’s okay with me.

I used a red Tombow marker to color in the hello and to stamp the love in I love you and the rest I kept black & white. I used a fine tip black pen and a ruler to add the lines. Next I used the large die from the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Set to cut the panel then layered it onto a piece of black card stock tearing one side for some texture.

I layered the panel onto a piece of striped paper from MFT’s Black & White Stripes paper pack then added that to a white card base.

I think this would be a great style of card for masculine cards. Switch up the sentiments for birthday, retirement, father’s day – whatever the reason would work.

So now it’s your turn. Have a hunt through your stamps and (hunting would be a good theme for a masculine card too) have a go at Sentiments Only and please share your card in the SNS Facebook Group for a chance to win a Gift Certificate to the SNS Shop.

Wishing You Happiness

Hi Everyone!

It’s Susan and today I am sharing a super quick one layer Clean and Simple (CAS) card to play along with the Random Acts of Cardness Challenge. The prompt is CAS and this card doesn’t get any more CAS or easier.

On the front of a card I stamped the girl image from Sip Happens from Picket Fence and below it I stamped the sentiment from Penny Blacks Sentiment Collection. I stamped them both with Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight ink.

I used a fine tip black marker to draw the line at the bottom of the image – it looked unfinished without it.

I used the Crimson (847) Tombow marker to color in the shirt, wine, lips and finger nails.

And that’s it.

This card is done.

Told you it was easy.


Now it’s your turn.

Make a project with the CAS theme and share it with us at the Scrap’n Stamp Facebook Challenge page.

You could win a $25 Gift Certificate to the store so why not come join in the fun.
