Distress Oxide

Tuesday with Tara {take 376} Snowy Bird

Happy Tuesday!  I’m sharing another festive BIRD card today (I promise I’ll have a different ‘theme’ next week- LOL), using the same “cardinal” MFT set as last week, with the addition of a snowflake background image by Woodware!  This snowy stamp is both cute and affordable (only 6 bucks!) and is a fabulous background for so many different images.  It’s a smaller image, but repeats easily- I’ve stamped it twice for the snowy panel on this card!

I chose to work with blues today- stamping the snowflakes in Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide Ink.  I colored the little bird & branch with my Copics in blues & browns as well, to tie everything together with the Kraft card base as well.  The finishing touch on the card was some little wooden snowflakes I found in my stash- they’re such a fun element I’m kinda sad to use them because I’m getting to the end of my supply!

It’s a simple, but I think sweet little card!  I hope you like it 🙂

Inky hugs,

Tara

Toucan Paradise card featuring Concord& 9th

Tara’s Toucan of  My Appreciation card features  the Toucan Paradise stamp set from Concord & 9th.  Raya here sharing some oldie but goodies with you while Tara is on the move.  I think if I was moving my craft stuff is the last stuff I’d pack and the second I’d unpack. Kitchen first can’t unpack or craft without coffee!

Tara’s original post —

Happy Tuesday, and happy birthday to ME! I’m definitely feeling another year older this year, but every day I wake up is a gift I am grateful for! I want to take today to share a TOUCAN of my appreciation with you. Yep, I’ve got another card (actually TWO) featuring the fun Toucan Paradise stamp set by Concord &9th, together with Distress Oxide Inks.

I’m so grateful for each of you that visits the SNS blog every Tuesday to see what I’ve been up to! I’m making an effort to share more on Instagram and here on my personal blog this year. I’ll try to mix things up and keep the inspiration coming… so I hope you’ll check those out too! I’ll be having a little giveaway on my Instagram account, so come visit me, msespresso, there!

Card Elements

Today’s card has a lot of the same elements you might remember from the one I shared a couple weeks ago. This time I went with Abandoned Coral as my main accent colour. The rest of the colours are actually the same, isn’t it amazing how changing one colour can give it a much more feminine feel? I also added a few stripe details & the leaf outline in Pumice Stone, which really lightens things up! I love the addition of that pale grayish tone in the mix!

Simple Stamping

My second card was made ultra simple to coordinate with the first. It was inspired by a CAS (clean and simple) challenge on instagram to stamp ‘along the edge’ of your card. I’m loving the foliage in this Toucan Paradise stamp set, so I used just the leaves & flowers for this card. I’ve noticed that most cards people share as CAS are on a white base, but I think a kraft card can still look clean 🙂 This simple design will look great on white as well, so I’ll be duplicating it in the near future, I’m sure!

Thanks again for stopping by to see what I made! I hope you’ll look me up (msespresso) on instagram- follow me & leave a comment… perhaps I’ll be sending you some happy mail soon!

Inky hugs,

Tara

Love and Sunshine Tag

Hello everyone, Kia here today to bring you this tag I made for the Random Act of Cardness events, day 10, which does say floral! But, as sometimes happens, I had to change it up a bit. So my keyword should be Stars and Hearts I think.

I am using the Honey Bee Rainbow Dreams die set for this tag along with Worn Lipstick distress oxide ink.

There is a coordinating stamp set to this, which I am sure will be in the store soon. which has the stamps that match the set. I used the hearts from that set to stamp and give me the shape, then fussy cut.

I then added the clouds, a total of 8 with one being on each side of the 4 clouds. This gives added weight to the tag.

I sponged on the Worn Lipstick to the clouds and running up the rainbow on all sides. I placed the tag in my mini Misti and stamped the sentiments again using the worn lipstick ink, then added a few die cut stars from the set.

To finish up I made a hole with my paper piercer in the middle of the rainbow and added the pink satin ribbon.

It was fun to do this tag for a change today. Thank you for dropping by.
