Tuesday with Tara {take 412} Fall Fragments

Happy Tuesday!

The focal point of my card is a gorgeous Leaf Fragment by Tim Holtz, which I inked up with assorted Distress Inks (smooshing technique) and then spritzed with Mica Spray.   I layered it over a piece of book print which I embossed using an autumn leaves embossing folder (I’m gonna call it vintage Tim Holtz since I’m sure it’s long ago discontinued).  It gives some subtle texture that you don’t really notice at first!

Adhering everything to a Kraft panel then a green card and the addition of a simple sentiment sticker (with gold text for more shine) finish it all off.

The second card is very much the same… just extra leaves and no embossing folder. I love them as an inky autumn pair!

I hope you like them as much as I do!

Inky hugs,

Tuesday with Tara {take 409} Autumn AALL & Create

Happy Tuesday!

Last Thursday for my Facebook Live I made a last minute change of plans and decided to make cards with the new AALL & Create die cut leaves, which come pre-colored in a package of 62 pieces!  They are colorful & whimsical and are also available in black & white, ready for you to add color… but I decided to try some for a little something different and they were so much fun!

Today I’m sharing a card & tag which I put together using the die cut leaves, a framework background stamp that is also by AALL & Create and metallic sticker sentiments by Tim Holtz.  I used the stickers because they are what I had… but I definitely want to purchase some more ephemera by this company, including sentiment strips in three colors (black, white & Kraft) and themes like “bite me” and “sharp tongues” they look like fun!

For this card, I lightly sanded some white core cardstock then stamped the background twice in black to give a repeat design.  I adhered some torn book print across the middle and selected three leaves to adhere.  Two were adhered flat to the card surface and the third, on the left side, was raised up with some foam adhesive.  I chose a sticker based on it’s length, so it would cover two of the stems and once I had everything adhered, I spritzed the entire card front with some mica spray to add a touch of gold/ bronze shimmer!

The tag was a really quick project- the hardest part for me was selecting my leaves!  I tried really hard not to be too ‘matchy’ with these and since I was using a pre-inked & die cut tag, I also tried not to overthink it!  I selected short, one or two word stickers and ended up loving how it came together.  I’m still debating if it’s going to end up on a card front- this would fit really nicely on a mini slimline 3×6″ card.

I made two more cards as well- one of them I’ve already shared on Instagram, so please stop by there and see it!   These leaves were really fun to play with and I look forward to more projects with them soon!

Inky hugs,

Tuesday with Tara {take 371) Hey Pumpkin

I’m delighted to share a new card with MFT’s Autumn Blessings stamp & die sets.  I started reaching for one of my newer sets, but for the card design I had in mind this one was perfect, since it includes three different pumpkins!  You see, I made this card for a very special baby shower that took place last weekend and we are so excited to be looking forward to the arrival of our third grand baby!  The two larger pumpkins represent our 3 year old grand son and 5 week old grand daughter, together they are our perfect little pumpkin patch 🙂

So I kept things pretty simple, stamping in black and coloring with watercolor pencils (I can’t wait to get my hands on the new Distress ones, even though I have a very large collection already!).  I chose shades of teal and coral for my card and layered the pumpkins onto patterned paper with text print in dark green.   Since I embossed the sentiment in white, I chose to also add some subtle embossing of leaves from the set on the printed panel for a bit more texture.

I also finished off the pumpkins with a touch of glitter and popped up the middle pumpkin with some foam squares.   Here’s another look at my finished card- this one is totally different lighting as it was taken inside, ready to go tucked into the gift basket.Hope you like it!  This is a fantastic stamp set I know I’ll keep pulling out for years to come!   As a bonus too, the coordinating dies are on sale right now!  If there was ever a sign to get the dies too… this is it! 🙂

Inky hugs,
