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,


Tuesday with Tara {take 375} Merry Bird

There’s just something about birds at Christmas- and this cutie is from a sweet set by MFT.  The set is called “Christmas Cardinals” but I took some creative license with my colors on this one, choosing to make his hat red instead!  I kept this card simple, pairing my bird with a bold, glittery ‘Merry‘ sentiment by Tim Holtz.

I layered the two elements over a book print circle (this one cut from an old technical manual I found) on a simple, clean white card.  A few pieces of bling finish it off and a bit of Nuvo glitter on the hat ties all the sparkly elements together!

This card might be a touch more than your basic CAS card, but it’s how I do CAS so I’m gonna say it counts!  I hope you like it 🙂

Inky hugs,


Tuesday with Tara {take 371) Hey Pumpkin

I’m delighted to share a new card with MFT’s Autumn Blessings stamp & die sets.  I started reaching for one of my newer sets, but for the card design I had in mind this one was perfect, since it includes three different pumpkins!  You see, I made this card for a very special baby shower that took place last weekend and we are so excited to be looking forward to the arrival of our third grand baby!  The two larger pumpkins represent our 3 year old grand son and 5 week old grand daughter, together they are our perfect little pumpkin patch 🙂

So I kept things pretty simple, stamping in black and coloring with watercolor pencils (I can’t wait to get my hands on the new Distress ones, even though I have a very large collection already!).  I chose shades of teal and coral for my card and layered the pumpkins onto patterned paper with text print in dark green.   Since I embossed the sentiment in white, I chose to also add some subtle embossing of leaves from the set on the printed panel for a bit more texture.

I also finished off the pumpkins with a touch of glitter and popped up the middle pumpkin with some foam squares.   Here’s another look at my finished card- this one is totally different lighting as it was taken inside, ready to go tucked into the gift basket.Hope you like it!  This is a fantastic stamp set I know I’ll keep pulling out for years to come!   As a bonus too, the coordinating dies are on sale right now!  If there was ever a sign to get the dies too… this is it! 🙂

Inky hugs,
