Tuesday with Tara {take 439} Dogwoods

Happy Tuesday!

The dogwood trees are in glorious full bloom where I live, so I couldn’t resist making a card with the lovely Dogwood Triptych Die by Memory Box.  I die cut it in white and layered the pieces over a panel from the Vintage Letters 6×6 pad by Impression Obsession.  I wanted to keep my card soft and neutral, so colored it as realistic as I was able with Distress Watercolor Pencil Crayons, then pieced some green behind the open centers.  It was a bit brighter than I wanted, so I added some 3D dots with Glossy Accents and brushed a bit of copper (Mined Alloy) over them once they were dry.

I’ve used Lamb’s Ear cardstock as my card base- it’s a soft grayish green that was a lovely base for some white embossing of an older Tim Holtz sentiment, reminding us that Hope is Never Lost (kinda speaks like spring, to me!).  I added a pierced stitch border along each side of the paper panel for a bit of extra interest. (These are stitched borders by Paper Rose.)

I was going for a soft a simple card today, so I hope that comes through!

Inky hugs,

Tuesday with Tara {take 438} Hello Friend

Happy Tuesday and Hello friends!  Today’s card is a throwback that has me ready to CASE my own design and make something new… hope it brings you some inspiration as well!

Today’s card uses a fun combo of products to make a sweet and simple card… florals by Hampton Art Stamps (Hello Beautiful set), Hello There from Bold Text #1 dies by Tim Holtz and the little sweet friend is from Honey Bee Stamps Bitty Buzzwords.  Of course, I’m still playing around with my new Distress color, so today you see a simple color combo of Distress Oxide Inks- Saltwater Taffy and Twisted Citron.

Of course, there’s more fun details like the stitched border (love this nesting set by Prism Studio) , 3D foam squares and some lime sequins by Studio Katia!  I wish I could tell you where the pink card base came from, but I’m pretty impressed how well it matched the Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide ink! (I think the Azalea card stock by Prism Studio is very close)

I’m pretty pleased with this card… really want to play around with other sentiments from the die set in combo with stamped greetings!  Hope you like it too 🙂

Inky hugs,

Tuesday with Tara {take 433} Each Day’s Gifts

Happy Tuesday!

Today’s card features the same Altenew stencil as I used on my card from last week, paired with stamped images by Altenew on this tag I made a while ago.  I had just been waiting for the right card background for it.

The stamped image & sentiment are from Altenew’s Bloom with Grace stamp set (plus I used the coordinating die for the image).  I had the tag background pre-inked & cut and added some details to it with a stencil and some strips of patterned paper to match my image (which I colored with Distress Watercolor Pencils).  Both the tag & pierced detail dies are by Paper Rose (though neither is in stock right now).  They have some really lovely designs for reasonable prices!

The Kraft card background features the same Altenew stencil I used on my card last week.  I love how the leaves have an abstract look on this card.

I added crinkle ribbon and a few sequins as the finishing touches!

Make a note on your calendar to join us back here on Friday (and all weekend long) for our March Inspiration Hop!  Can’t wait to see you there!

Inky hugs,
