Happy Tuesday & Hello There, Sweet Friends!

Today’s card uses a fun combo of products to make a sweet and simple card… florals by Hampton Art Stamps (Hello Beautiful set), Hello There from Bold Text #1 dies by Tim Holtz and the little sweet friend is from Honey Bee Stamps Bitty Buzzwords.  Of course, I’m still playing around with my new Distress color, so today you see a simple color combo of Distress Oxide Inks- Saltwater Taffy and Twisted Citron.

Of course, there’s more fun details like the stitched border from MFT, 3D foam squares and some lime sequins by Studio Katia!  I wish I could tell you where the pink card base came from, but I’m pretty impressed how well it matched the Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide ink!

I’m pretty pleased with this card… really want to play around with other sentiments from the die set in combo with stamped greetings!  Hope you like it too 🙂

Inky hugs,

Tara

Hello all! Kia back with you today to share my card for day 25 of the Random Act of Cardness series. Today’s prompt word is “Flowers”.

I have used flowers by Honey Bee Stamps, which I stamped on vellum using Seedless Preserves distress ink. My background is done using a Paper Rose die to cut a piece which I used as a stencil, adding embossing ink, then heat embossing with Broken China distress ink.

When the heat embossing was finished I added distress ink in Seedless Preservcs around the edges of the heat embossed panel and attached it to my card base using foam tape.

I then inked up the centre die piece using the left over ink from my distress ink Seedless Preserves brush and attached the piece to the card using foam strips. To the back of the blooms I added vellum tape from my EZ runner.

To finish my card I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink, trimmed it and added to the card again using foam strips.

Thanks so much for joining me today. Following are Affiliate links for the products I used for this card, at no extra expense to you.


Tuesday with Tara {take 345} Blessed & Bling

Tuesday, March 29th, 2022

Happy Tuesday!  My inspiration for today’s card is the word for Day 30 on our Facebook Challenge group– Bling! I’m trying to slip creatively into spring mode, so I played with a few shades of Distress Oxide Ink for a fun splattered background with ink blending.  I then die cut some assorted sizes of the Tim Holtz Stacked Hexagons and played around with a layout for them on a mini slim (3.5×6″) panel I had cut out.

For the BLING- I used a glittery die cut word ‘blessed’ that I had leftover from one of my cards from earlier this month.  I wanted to use some tiny paper flowers I had, some of which have glittery petals, so I added some gold to their centers to tie it all together.  I trimmed white pearly card stock to layer onto my card base and finished everything off with some gold toned bling!  I know at a glance this is not a seriously blingy card, but trust me- the elements are all there 🙂

I love the soft looks you get ink blending with Distress Oxide Inks, even using vibrant colors!  It’s perfect for spring and all those little speckles have me craving Robin’s Eggs Candy!  Yum…

Hope you like my simple, blingy card!

Inky hugs,

Tara
