Tuesday with Tara {take 432} Wildflowers

You belong among the wildflowers.

Happy Tuesday!  Last week I got inky on my Crafty Live with the new Scorched Timber Distress, and I was determined to make something with one of my backgrounds for this week!   I kept things pretty simple and die cut one of the backgrounds (I believe this one features the two sprays together- Distress Spray Stain and Distress Oxide Spray) with my new Stitched Oblong STAX dies by MFT.  I love how the mix of the two sprays gives almost a dirty chalkboard effect.

I embossed a wildflowers sentiment (this is from an older Gina K set that it still in stock!) in white, then scattered a few mini brushstrokes flowers along one edge.  I’d pre-cut a variety of flowers in yellows & blue from some backgrounds so these were ready to go!

I added some subtle detail to the background with an Altenew stencil called “Leaf Bed” and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink, then decided to add it to a coordinating envelope as well!  I added a few sequins as a finishing touch…

I hope this brings a bit of sunshine to your day, especially if you’re experiencing the endless days of winter wherever you are…

Inky hugs,

Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 424} Winter Birthday Wishes

Happy Boxing Day, friends!  (or happy Tuesday to those of you in the USA. LOL)

Just because Christmas Day has come & gone, we don’t have to stop using our snowy crafty supplies!  Especially if they are relatively new and you still have inspiration for them… so today I’m sharing a winter birthday card!  It’s fairly simple, but has tons of shimmer & shine!

My background is this gorgeous Pierced Fancy Flakes A2 cover plate by Honey Bee, cut in blue then spritzed with some pearly mica spray.  I was looking for something shiny to complement the background, and none of my blues or silvers looked quite right… then I remembered I had some Holographic Foil Cardstock and thought I’d give it a try… I think we can agree it turned out kinda fabulous!

I cut a sentiment (birthday wishes by MFT) and some snowflakes (snow time by Penny Black) from the foil cardstock (sorry- can’t fine either of these in the online store at the moment!) and added some clear bling to finish it off!  Any snowflakes or sentiment would be lovely out of this- it’s a touch finicky to deal with, but is totally worth it when you get these results!  I was very impressed it photographed well, too!

I hope you had a lovely Christmas- and if you’re still on vacation, enjoy every minute!  Don’t forget to take some time to be creative and make some snowy thank you or birthday cards to get you through January 🙂

Inky hugs,

Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 413} Autumn Blessings

Happy Tuesday!  Today’s make is a tag bringing autumn blessings… but not just any autumn blessings, glowing ones 😉

After the spooky fun I had with the GLOW Grit Paste for our Ghostly Greetings Hop (missed it?  See it HERE) I wanted to try something different with my colorize pumpkins!  I paired them with a sentiment from one of my favorite autumn sets by MFT and had some pattern matching fun with this gorgeous lace frame stencil by Brutus Monroe.

I used pieces of ready-to-use Mixed Media Card stock by Vicki Boutin to cut parts of my pumpkins & the panel for the sentiment.  I chose to layer up just the short pumpkin and cut the tall one from a part of the paper that had a pretty foil design on it.  The stenciling was pieced together in stages so I wouldn’t smear the paste while it was still wet.  I played up the gold elements on the pumpkins by painting a bit of gold perfect pearls in the open spaces on the tag, as well as adding a bit around the edges of the sentiment.  I did this by simply dipping a wet brush into the perfect pearls powder, mixing on my Kraft sheet and painting!

Everything is simple, but elegant… but it gets fun when the lights go out:

Look at it GLOW!  This grit paste is so much fun and really unexpected when you first glance at it!  It definitely adds a new level of fun to your projects 🙂 I hope you love it!

Inky hugs,

Tara
