Tuesday with Tara {take 238} Be Creative

Tuesday, February 4th, 2020

Happy Tuesday!

I’ve been playing around with a mix of some new & old supplies, working on ideas for our February Blog Hop- (coming up on Friday, Feb. 7).  One idea had me pulling out Color Burst powders (I used some I’ve had for a few years, but tried to pick colors similar to the new ones in this Sunrise Color Burst Trio by MFT).  The card I’m sharing today is a sort of happy accident…  I set the piece I was inking on another sheet of cardstock and THIS is the overflow spray from my spritzing and shaking happily away with my Color Burst 🙂

The colorful splatters you can get with Color Burst is one of my favorite things about it!  I decided to go ahead and trim it down for a card front!  In the spirit of keeping it simple, a fabulous sentiment was in order.  It seemed perfect for the Crafty & Creative stamps by Gina K Designs!  There are two stamps in this little set, and the second one is stamped inside my card.  Crafty friends really are the greatest friends!  And these Gina K stamps really are a dream to work with- I love the crisp black image I got using them with Nocturne Versafine Clair!

Inky hugs,


Sweet Peas Hello Friend

Sunday, October 6th, 2019

Hello crafters! Kia here today to share this stencil card using distress oxide inks and a another great way to use your stencils.

Using The Crafters Workshop Sweet Peas on the back side of my 110lb cardstock I ran the stencil through my Gemini along with 2 shims and the embossing mat in place of the magnetic mat.

This leaves a beautiful impression on the front of the card, as shown below. This view is the back of the cardstock.

On the front of the card the embossing is raised. I placed the stencil over the front of the stencil embossing and brushed the flowers with distress oxides in Squeezed Lemonade and Ripe Persimmon, and the leaves in Twisted Citron.

For a bit of contrast I added Mowed Lawn to a few leaves and stems.

I trimmed my piece to 4 x 5.25 and brushed around the edges with Mustard Seed, then attached the piece to a orange card base.

The sentiment is stamped using VersaFine Clair Ink in Tulip Red and matted with the orange cardstock then applied with foam squares.

And to finish I added a few drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops Glossy to the card.

Sunburst Hello

Monday, March 18th, 2019

Kia back with you today with this bright and happy card. We had more snow yesterday and today in my neck of the woods, so I was determined to make a bright card, and using Color Burst is one of the best ways I know to get bright saturated colours.

I started with some Fabriano Hot Press 140lb water colour paper for this, stamping first with Penny Black’s Sunbursts stamp and heat embossing with white embossing powder.

Then the fun began. I first spritzed my piece lightly just to dampen, then added the colours, spritzing gently after each addition, until the background looked the way I liked. I dried with my heat gun and die cut the panel using my Wonky Rectangle die. I wanted to use the yellow card base, and did not want black around the whole panel, so I die cut a piece of the black card stock and attached on an angle, then attached my panel opposite. I stamped the sentiment heat embossing with the white powder, and attached to the card using foam squares.

Following is my video on this card, along with the Affiliate links for the products used.

Thanks for visiting us today.
