Tuesday with Tara {take 440} Knowing Bee

Happy Tuesday!

If you joined me live on Facebook last week (or caught the replay) you would have seen me color up this Funky bee near the end of our time together.  After all my watercolored bits were dry, I glued my layers together and added some Glossy Accents to his wings.  Since the watercolor paper I was working on was a lighter weight, it gives it a somewhat translucent effect.  It’s not what I intended… but it’s kinda perfect for wings!

I know it’s another grey card base, but I really thought the Silverleaf Willow by Prism Studio complemented the colors of my bee quite nicely.  I cut a wide border at the crease side of my card with one of the Puffy Cloud Border dies by Lawn Fawn.

Behind the bee, I used some book print which I spritzed with some Distress Oxide Spray in Salvaged Patina.  I then adhered that paper to white cardstock and attached it under the creased edge of my card.  I stamped a sentiment from one of my older Tim Holtz stamp sets (CMS086 if you’re wondering) to finish it off.

I’ll show you how I did that fold and assembled the card during this week’s Facebook Live, but our finished card will feature the dragonfly I colored :). Hope to see you there!

Inky hugs,

Tara

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,

Tara

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,

Tara
