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,


Tuesday with Tara {take 370} Miss You Mugs

Happy Tuesday!

I’m excited to share a card I made with the Fall Calls for Lattes stamp set by Catherine Pooler. I fell in love with it when I saw the first project with it and since there’s so many great elements on it, you’ll likely see me share several cards with it while autumn is still here!

I started with some simple stamping and coloring with my Copic markers.  I stamped a bunch of mugs & elements and just started to play… these images are so much fun!  After fussy cutting a few pieces, (the coordinating dies might be something I invest in soon!) I selected cardstock colors to work with.

I had already chosen a layout I wanted to use, inspired by a sketch I saw on Instagram by Freshly Made Sketches.  I knew these small elements would be perfect framed on a die cut square!  For my background layer, I pulled out a ‘vintage’ Tim Holtz embossing folder with simple leaf shapes.  I embossed a Kraft panel then inked the edges with Ground Espresso Distress Ink.  A hint of mica spray is a great touch, I love the gold on Kraft!

The rest is pretty self explanatory!  I finished everything off with some foam squares for dimension and a touch of twine & bling for texture.  Next up I need to get this in the mail to one of the many friends I miss having coffee with…

Inky hugs,


Tuesday with Tara {take 368} Hello There

Hello There!  I’m back after some a bit of time off!  It’s been fun for me to see Raya’s picks of my past cards to share on Tuesday’s here 🙂   Life is a bit crazy for me right now, and will continue to be that way for a while but for now I’m happy to share another card and some ‘creative therapy’ as I’m able to make things!

Today, I’ve got one more card I did using the fabulous Leaf Fragment dies by Tim Holtz.  This is the first one I’m sharing here on the SNS Blog, but if you participated in our September Inspiration hop  (or follow me on Instagram) you probably saw some of the others!

I made a series of 4 cards using a variety of inky leaves, Kraft card stock and book print and for this one, I added a glittery sentiment!  I die cut a BOLD TEXT sentiment with gold glitter Cardstock and pieced the letters carefully together along a ruler to keep them as straight as possible.  I kinda wish I had cut it from white or black also to layer under it and add a bit more pop, but since I didn’t I simply highlighted the left edges of the letters with a dark green pen to add some definition.

It definitely feels like autumn is here in the south now- temperatures have dropped and we had quite a bit of rain & wind as Ian landed in the United States.  Thankfully, where I’m living we didn’t have any major damage.  There were plenty of trees knocked down from the winds, and because of that we had a power outage for 12 hours on Friday night/Saturday morning.  It was mostly an inconvenience here and we are very grateful for our safety!

Be sure to stop back by this weekend- our October Inspiration Hop begins on Friday and it’s sure to be a treat!

Inky hugs,
