Tuesday with Tara {take 376} Snowy Bird

Happy Tuesday!  I’m sharing another festive BIRD card today (I promise I’ll have a different ‘theme’ next week- LOL), using the same “cardinal” MFT set as last week, with the addition of a snowflake background image by Woodware!  This snowy stamp is both cute and affordable (only 6 bucks!) and is a fabulous background for so many different images.  It’s a smaller image, but repeats easily- I’ve stamped it twice for the snowy panel on this card!

I chose to work with blues today- stamping the snowflakes in Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide Ink.  I colored the little bird & branch with my Copics in blues & browns as well, to tie everything together with the Kraft card base as well.  The finishing touch on the card was some little wooden snowflakes I found in my stash- they’re such a fun element I’m kinda sad to use them because I’m getting to the end of my supply!

It’s a simple, but I think sweet little card!  I hope you like it 🙂

Inky hugs,

Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 370} Miss You Mugs

Happy Tuesday!

I’m excited to share a card I made with the Fall Calls for Lattes stamp set by Catherine Pooler. I fell in love with it when I saw the first project with it and since there’s so many great elements on it, you’ll likely see me share several cards with it while autumn is still here!

I started with some simple stamping and coloring with my Copic markers.  I stamped a bunch of mugs & elements and just started to play… these images are so much fun!  After fussy cutting a few pieces, (the coordinating dies might be something I invest in soon!) I selected cardstock colors to work with.

I had already chosen a layout I wanted to use, inspired by a sketch I saw on Instagram by Freshly Made Sketches.  I knew these small elements would be perfect framed on a die cut square!  For my background layer, I pulled out a ‘vintage’ Tim Holtz embossing folder with simple leaf shapes.  I embossed a Kraft panel then inked the edges with Ground Espresso Distress Ink.  A hint of mica spray is a great touch, I love the gold on Kraft!

The rest is pretty self explanatory!  I finished everything off with some foam squares for dimension and a touch of twine & bling for texture.  Next up I need to get this in the mail to one of the many friends I miss having coffee with…

Inky hugs,

Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 365} cheers to you

Happy Tuesday!  Cheers to you!

Today’s card is inspired by the challenge word over at the SNS fb challenge group “stencil” so I used two very different stencils in two different ways… along with a generous heaping of Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide Ink!

My starting point was the tag, which features one of the Tim Holtz Doodle Art Stencils and some leftover crackle paste from another project.   This is a very detailed stencil with a ton of fun elements.  I sprinkled some Uncharted Mariner Distress Embossing Glaze over it and once dry, heated it.  I also just wiped excess paste off on the other corners of the tag to clean my palette knife which gives a bit of a resist to the Kraft tag base.  I inked over the entire tag with the Distress Oxide Ink and then added a bit of shading around the edges with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide.

A smaller Kraft tag with a sentiment stamped on it and a ribbon bow adds a bit more texture, as well as a touch of bling.

I built my card on a 5×7 Kraft card base, stenciling and stamping in the same ink.  I’ve used Woodware’s Wheel stencil and my sentiment is by MFT.  The finishing touches are these glittery silhouette birdscut from somesugar crystal card stock.  They pretty much steal the show, but I am here for it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Inky hugs,

Tara
