Tuesday with Tara {take 437} Easter Wreath

Happy Tuesday!  Easter is just around the corner so I thought I’d use my new Vault Funky Floral Wreath die set by Tim Holtz to create an Easter card!   It’s a pretty simple card, just die cuts & bling on a Kraft A2 card base, but the variety of colors & shapes definitely keeps it interesting!
I used a mix of scraps of papers I’d previously inked up using a variety of Distress Inks & sprays for all the pieces you see, except for the bow & lettering cut from glittery card stock!  It was a lot of fun to mix and match the dies in this set in some softer, springy shades.

I didn’t have a die cut sentiment for Easter, so I decided to have some fun & do some mixing & matching!  I’ve paired a script “happy” from Shadow Script #2 (which I’m kinda surprised is still available in the SNS online store as I type!  It’s an oldie, but a goodie!) together with assorted letters from one of the sentiments in Bold Text #1 set (Best Day Ever).  I love how together it makes a whimsical greeting that really suits the mix of florals on the wreath!

The finishing touch on the card is more bling from the Spring Florals Mix Ups set by Buttons & Galore.  I love this mix for spring and suggest you snag some while you can.  LOL
FYI- if the Easter eggs in the background of the card photos caught your eye, you can check out my posts how I made them HERE (Coffee Filter Tie Dyed Eggs) & HERE (Distress Collaged Eggs).  Both are fun techniques to give you some pretty eggs to decorate with year after year!
Inky hugs,

Tuesday with Tara {take 436} Spring Hares

Happy Tuesday!

I’m celebrating the beginning of spring and Easter is just around the corner… so I wanted to share a card with the adorable ‘Wild Hares‘ set by Lavinia Stamps.  It includes three different small hare silhouettes.  I had in mind to create a scene, but realized I may have to add more Lavinia stamps to my collection first!

I had the idea to do something on a soft, pastel background- which I created with a few colors of Distress Oxide Spray Stains!  I’ve used Cracked Pistachio, Speckled Egg & Saltwater Taffy together, with a bit of Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide stenciled over them.  I sized up the stamps against the Pointed Arch nesting dies by Hero Arts, finding the perfect size to create a banner across a slimline card.

I cut to ‘pendants’ from each different color blend on my background, then stamped a hare on one of each color in Nocturne Versafine Clair Ink for a bold black silhouette.  I embossed on a white background (in two steps since the panel was longer than my embossing folder) and then finished the card off with a variety of embellishments from the Spring Florals Mix Ups set.  It’s super pretty and includes these sweet little blossoms in addition to some pretty gems & sequin bits.

I find slimline cards to be a bit of a struggle to photograph, so I decided to grab some spring decorations for my little photo shoot for this card.  I hope it captures all the whimsy!

Inky hugs,

Have a Hoppy and Sunny Easter!


The calendar has moved into SPRING here in Canada! (I’m just gonna ignore the snow in the backyard…) And so my word for today’s Random Acts of Cardness challenge: SUNSHINE. I was tempted to make a beach scene, because wow, I miss the beach 😉 , but then my thoughts turned to Easter:




I still wanted to make sure my sun motif was prominent, so I started blending my sky background with some squeezed lemonade distress ink to give my whittle sun a nice sunny glow around it. The rest of the sky is blended with tumbled glass distress ink to keep the background light. I was going to cut the grass out of regular green cardstock, but this Photo Play polka dot paper happened to be out, and I thought it would be a fun addition.  The Easter bunny, eggs and sentiment are all from a mini Lawn Fawn stamp set. There are days I might colour all the different Easter eggs… and days like today when I cut them from scraps of coloured cardstock. 😉



Are you like me, ready for some spring sunshine? Hope you’ll play along!
