Tuesday with Tara {take 388} Party like it’s your birthday!

Happy Tuesday!  I’m back, after a bit of a break, to share a Tuesday with Tara project with you!

I created this card with the intent of sharing it for the April Inspiration Hop over at SNS, but I didn’t feel like it fit the vibe of the hop with the kit being featured!  The card I shared (linked in the post previous to this) does, however, use the same sentiment with a completely different feel!  I hope you like them both 🙂
I’ve used:
Birthday Banners Stamp & Die Set by Hampton Art Stamps
Blossom Stencil by Tim Holtz
Distress Mica Spray, Bronze

I started with a panel inked with both shades of pink and a touch of brown at the edges.  I then applied the texture paste through the stencil over the pink and set it aside to dry.  Once dry (I left it overnight, just in case!) I started to ink over it and wiped with a damp rag to reveal the shiny pink blossoms!
I assembled the base & layers of the card, then spritzed with the mica spray & again wiped off the blossoms for a bit of extra shimmer & grunge (why not have both!?).  The bird, bling & sentiment were all added as finishing touches once everything was dry to touch.
The splatters of shimmer remind me of the rainy spring days we’ve been having here in NC!  I’m looking forward to enjoying a bit of sunshine finally!
Inky hugs,

Scribbly Snowflakes card with Sizzix dies

This is card featuring Sizzix Scribbly snowflake dies and Tim Holtz Festive Words dies.  I figured it was appropriate as Canada gets yet another dump of snow – what perfect time to stay inside and create!  This is a throw back from our Christmas in July because Tara is dealing with her move – I hope you enjoy it!

Perhaps you remember  I had a bit of an oops with a bottle of White Dina Wakley Media Gloss Spray several weeks ago.  You can see the card & read about it here.  Since I had a puddle of white on my desk, I started grabbing papers & tags and assorted other things and dipped them in the puddle.  I suspected that since it has a glossy finish it would be fun for a resist technique, and I was right!  This card front was plain white Cardstock, which I dipped & dripped and splattered and left to dry.

I die cut the Let if Snow from Tim Holtz Festive Words from Glitter Cardstock . Then added some colour blending to the solid layer behind it.  I found a couple of Scribbly Snowflakes left over from last year’s holiday crafting. While I don’t recall what colours I used, I took inspiration from them for the palette on this card- keeping the background softer to let them stand out.

I went to my old faithful, Distress Inks to do some colour blending over the card a subtle mix of Stormy Sky, Salvaged Patina & Chipped Sapphire.  Once it was blended, I spritzed with some water and wiped off the card to really make those glossy bits pop!

I finished everything off with a few sequins and mounted it on a light blue card base.

Remember it’s never too early to start on Christmas cards.

See you soon!

Tuesday with Tara {take 381} Viva Magenta

2023… the adventure begins!

Several years ago I started making my first card of the new year inspired by the Pantone Color of the Year.  Though I have very little time to create these days I knew that I could not overlook the release of Lumberjack Plaid Distress at the end of 2022, around the same time that Viva Magenta was introduced as the 2023 color!

I aimed to create a CAS card, and struggled with it… but my primary pop of ‘magenta’ is on the bird silhouette. 

I planned to add the sentiment and the strip of book print… the rest just ganged up on me so I could no longer call this CAS!  Hope it makes you smile as you join me in facing the adventure we are calling 2023.

Inky hugs,
