Tuesday with Tara {take 359} Bookmarks!

Happy Tuesday, friends!

I’m sure I’m not the only person who looks forward to summertime reading!  I used to read so much when I was younger, but I find these days I really have to make an effort and take time to read.  All too often, when I finally do take the time I end up using a piece of junk mail or a receipt for my bookmark.  Friends, we can do better than that!  ha!

Today I’m sharing some sweet & simple bookmarks I stamped.  I paired this little mouse by Anita Jeram (not currently in the online store- sorry!) with some paint splatters & a swoosh from this fun crafty set by Taylored Expressions.  I stamped the painty bits in Distress Oxide Ink, picking the colors based on the scraps of ribbon I could easily find on my work space to match with them!  Here I’ve used Mustard Seed and Wilted Violet.  Lastly, the mice were quickly colored in with some watercolor pencils and honestly, it’s as simple as that!

The stamp set comes with some cute little sentiments that I added to the bookmarks as well.   Before stamping, I cut the bookmarks out of some mini slimline stackables stitched dies by Lawn Fawn, and they are perfect for this!

Here’s a closer look at my cute little bookmarks!  Now I just need to make the time to use them…

Inky hugs,

Tara

ROAD TRIP!!

Hello and welcome!! It’s Susan here with you today and I’m sharing today’s Random Act of Cardness post. The prompt today is ROAD TRIP!! I don’t know about you but with the warmer weather coming it makes me want to do a road trip. My husband and I just got back from one last week and are going to head out again next week.  I colored this image while we were on our trip. I ALWAYS take some form of stamping with me and this time I took some watercolors and images to have some fun with.

I used a stamp Set appropriately called Road Trip from Art Impressions. I LOVE this stamp set. I pretty much love all Art Impressions stamps – they’re such fun to color. I used my Tombow Dual Brush Pens for this image. I didn’t keep track of what colors I used where but I did link to them all below.

I stamped the image onto some Canson Mixed Media paper using Versafine Nocturne ink. I used the image on the stamp set as a guide for where to place shadows as that is something I tend to not take a lot of care in and have noticed sometimes I have shadows where there wouldn’t actually be any. I don’t tend to worry too much about that – as long as I’m having fun doing it and like the results then I’m good wherever the shadows appear. But if I have a guide then I’ll use it.

I’ve seen Kristina Werner stamp out the image she is using onto some scratch paper to figure out where the shadows are then shade them in with a pencil and use that as a guide. Maybe I should give that a try?

I cut the image out using the large die from the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched 4 Bar Die Set then layered it onto some Licorice card stock from MFT and adhered that directly to a white card base.

Next I stamped the sentiments with Versamark ink onto some Licorice card stock and heat set them with WOW Opaque Super Fine White Embossing Powder. My original plan was to try them out on the card then choose the one I liked best but I decided to use them all. I popped the Road Trip one up on some black craft foam for a little dimension.

 

Thanks so much for spending a part of your day with me.
Take care,
Susan

Happy Birthday

Hello all, Kia here with you today for Day 19 of the Random Act of Cardness challenge. Today’s prompt is “Pink”.

For my card I am using Gina K Designs Elegant Asters along with Sizzix’ Embossing Folder Quilted.

I ran the Quilted embossing folder through my Gemini Jr. using Neenah cardstock. For the smooshing I put down the colours on my work surface, starting with Spun Sugar, then Kitsch Flamingo and ending with Picked Raspberry.

I continued smooshing until I was happy with the look. For the final addition of the Picked Raspberry I spritzed with Perfect Pearls and water instead of just the water. This added a lovely shine to the background.

I then dried the piece using my heat gun and attached it to my Gina K Design card base using foam tape.

Moving on I stamped the butterfly first with VersaFine Clair ink in Glamorous, then with Nocturne. I then stamped the flower using Versamark embossing ink and heat embossed with Pink embossing powder.

Using the 66 Dot card I watercoloured the flower and butterfly using the Quinacridone Pink and Quinacridone Fuschia. To the flower centre I added Hansa Yellow medium.

I then die cut the pieces and styled them using my stylist. I stamped the sentiment using the VersaFine Clair ink in Glamorous, then arranged and attached the flower and butterfly with foam squares.

To finish I added a scattering a crystals and sequins.
