Tuesday with Tara {take 430} Yappy Pyramid Card

Happy Tuesday!

If today’s card looks familiar to you, it’s probably because you saw it in another color palette during our Dimensional Designs Inspiration Hop last month!  I never did give directions for the assembly of the pyramid, or photos of it laying flat, so I thought I’d share some of that with you today!

Here’s another angle of the pyramid card, showing how it ties closed at the back.

My card was formed from 3 squares (mine are 4 1/4″) which are scored diagonally.  The decorative pieces are cut from 4″ squares and I’m using 3 triangles on this card.  You also need two pieces of ribbon to tie it shut, but you could also use magnets or velcro or some other kind of closure!

Here is a photo the flat lay of the card- start with the square on the left and layer a second square against the score line, then repeat with the third square as shown.  From here I suggest folding the card into a pyramid and marking where you will need to adhere your ribbon so it matches to tie together.  You’ll want to adhere the ribbon underneath the decorative panels, so start with the ribbon then decorate!  (You can catch the live tutorial of the pyramid card on the Scrap ‘N Stamp Facebook page!)

Simply fold the card in half to mail it- this size fits in a 5×7 envelope.  I’m still experimenting with sizes to figure out what fits perfectly in an A2 envelope!

Here’s the details & links from how I decorated both cards:

I kept the decorating pretty simple on this one because I didn’t want to distract from the design and I also didn’t want to cover up the paper I stenciled!  I started with a vintage letter print from the new 6×6 pad by IO and layered on the Puppy Love Layering Stencil by Taylored Expressions.  I chose to use Distress Oxide Inks because the patterned paper has a slightly glossy coating on it that I knew regular Distress Ink would not work on.
I’ve used Puppy Play stamp & die set, coloring the pups simply with Distress Watercolor Pencil Crayons and stamped the sentiment on a strip of Kraft cardstock, to match my pyramid card base.
I die cut some of the Prism Nesting Hearts from scraps I had on my workspace.  The card still seemed to be missing something, and bling was not doing the trick for me this time (so weird, it is almost always the right finishing choice!) so I die cut the word ‘hugs’ from some brushed gold foil cardstock, and a tiny heart as well for my finishing touches!
Hope you like the card and this little tutorial was helpful!  It’s really quite simple to assemble and very fun to decorate!
Inky hugs,

Tuesday with Tara {take 413} Autumn Blessings

Happy Tuesday!  Today’s make is a tag bringing autumn blessings… but not just any autumn blessings, glowing ones 😉

After the spooky fun I had with the GLOW Grit Paste for our Ghostly Greetings Hop (missed it?  See it HERE) I wanted to try something different with my colorize pumpkins!  I paired them with a sentiment from one of my favorite autumn sets by MFT and had some pattern matching fun with this gorgeous lace frame stencil by Brutus Monroe.

I used pieces of ready-to-use Mixed Media Card stock by Vicki Boutin to cut parts of my pumpkins & the panel for the sentiment.  I chose to layer up just the short pumpkin and cut the tall one from a part of the paper that had a pretty foil design on it.  The stenciling was pieced together in stages so I wouldn’t smear the paste while it was still wet.  I played up the gold elements on the pumpkins by painting a bit of gold perfect pearls in the open spaces on the tag, as well as adding a bit around the edges of the sentiment.  I did this by simply dipping a wet brush into the perfect pearls powder, mixing on my Kraft sheet and painting!

Everything is simple, but elegant… but it gets fun when the lights go out:

Look at it GLOW!  This grit paste is so much fun and really unexpected when you first glance at it!  It definitely adds a new level of fun to your projects 🙂 I hope you love it!

Inky hugs,

Tuesday with Tara {take 407} Inky Bouquet

Happy Tuesday!

Today I’m sharing one card in two color palettes, featuring Inky Bouquet stamps by Altenew & Distress Spray Stains as the medium!

I love this set because it includes a gorgeous bouquet as well as some fun ink splatter stamps and a variety of beautiful sentiments.  I love the ink splats because, to me, they give permission for some messy, inky coloring!  I decided to start with white embossing the stamp on two different papers.  The first card, with a brighter color palette, was done on watercolor card stock.

I spritzed over the entire image with Saltwater Taffy Distress Spray Stain, then selected a few colors to blend with it for my watercolor painting.  You can watch the process on replay of my Facebook Live Crafty Class HERE.  For both cards, I tied it all together by adding some stamped splatters in the same ink I used for the sentiment.

As you can see, the second card has a much softer color palette.  I used Kitsch Flamingo as my starting place, but the main reason it’s lighter is the paper.  This one, a smooth white, absorbed the color more than the watercolor paper.

I did both cards side by side in my Facebook Live and it really helps to demonstrate the difference between them!  I encourage you to experiment with different materials in your stash to see how they respond to your techniques.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing these two cards side by side!  I really had fun making them!

Inky hugs,
