Tuesday with Tara {take 423} Coffee for Christmas

Happy Tuesday!  It’s that time of year when I realize I have way more ideas for Christmas cards than I have time to make them… I should probably try to be one of those people who makes them all year for next years cards, then they might actually get sent out to people 🙂 I was finishing up some in progress cards and thinking about what I should post when I realized that this is my LAST Tuesday post before Christmas- yikes!   So, I’ve decided to share one I had ready to go and save more for Instagram shares this week.  Knowing me I’ll still be making them this weekend and will just have posts ready to go for next year!

This card came about when I was playing with shades of blue and found this big Lawn Fawn Merry Christmas I bought last year and didn’t get around to using… doesn’t it look fabulous cut from aquamarine glitter!?  I’ve got a variety of blues happening here, but the Lawn Fawn Knit Picky paper is a fun addition too.  I wanted to take some drinks from Catherine Pooler’s Fall Calls for Latte’s stamp set and winterize them- so inking this one in blues & adding a little snowflake to it seems to have done the trick.  I added a few more tiny snowflakes & pearls from this fun set of Sprinkletz, which was meant for shaker cards (& I will probably keep using well into January!)

Final touches are some small die cut snowflakes and sheer ribbon from my stash, plus a little sentiment from MFT that I believe is discontinued.  I think there’s some definite winter vibes happening here in this simple, whimsical card!  Hope you like it!

Inky hugs,

Tuesday with Tara {take 420} Snow Peaceful

Happy Tuesday!

It’s officially Christmas countdown time and for a pro-craft-inator like me, that means it’s full on Christmas card time!  Today that means playing with some of my new supplies- like this gorgeous Pierced Fancy Flakes A2 cover plate by Honey Bee!  I paired it with some snowflakes from my stash (these are by Memory Box, but aren’t available in the online store anymore) and a foiled sentiment using the new Stick & Shine Xmas Classics sentiments & Metallic foil by Penny Black!

As you can see, I die cut my snowflakes from some of the new Prism Whole Spectrum Glitter Cardstock- for this card I’ve used Sapphire & Chrome.   The circles feature Prism products as well- the Nesting Stitched Circle dies and the cardstock in dark blue and grey!

I tried to keep this card simple to showcase the gorgeous products, but covered up more of the background than I originally intended!  You’ll definitely see this background again soon 🙂

Inky hugs,

Tuesday with Tara {take 418} Immense Joy

Happy Tuesday!  Today I’m sharing a card I created last year, but never shared here on the SNS blog!  It features the fabulous Immense Joy die by Penny Black- I hope you like it!

I fell in love with this bold JOY die & immediately saw it as a frame for what I hoped would be quick & easy cards… paired with the sweet Holly Berry Birds stamp, it seemed a bit of an odd combination since both items essentially fill a card front.  I didn’t want to eliminate the pretty holly branches, so I chose to try my hand at the spotlight technique.  Since Kraft is my favorite neutral, I started there and added some bling with a glittery die cut.
It took some trial and error to get everything lined up… next time I’ll use my stamping platform to keep things straight!  But I did some quick coloring with watercolor pencils on this one.  The stamp was inked in black and stamped both on the Kraft background panel and again on white, then die cut from the JOY die to get the best fit inside the open “O”.

I look forward to seeing what other stamped images will fit inside that big open space.  It’s so much fun to mix and match older & newer products, especially with Christmas when you have favorites that are only used once a year!

Inky hugs,
