PSL Card Making Time

Tuesday, September 6th, 2022

Break out the MFT Autumn Blessing stamps and a Pumpkin spice from Lawn Fawn and we’re making PSL Cards.  We are mixing things up a bit this month, Tara is on the move and packing up all her craft stash. So, I’m here with a   throwback card from a blog hop. I chose this one because it’s the same stamps she used in last weeks post.

I’m featuring Autumn Blessings by MFT once again!  I had a card idea in mind, but tweaked it a bit at the end and added some PSL vibes 😉 so I hope you like it!

I colored up the pumpkins from the MFT set and the Pumpkin Spice Latte stamp by Lawn Fawn with Distress Ink & water.   They were all stamped on water color card stock with Archival Ink.  I cut them out with the coordinating dies.  I decided afterwards that this would be a fun project for Distress Embossing Glaze, so I used Clear Embossing Pen to color in the mug and glazed it to give a nice shiny mug!  I used the glaze over Clear Embossing Ink on the sentiment, which I stamped directly on the Kraft card base.

I really wanted to pair these pumpkins with Buffalo Plaid, but my new stamp didn’t arrive in time (I’ll have some fun with it in the near future though!) so I found some patterned paper to use.  A touch of silk ribbon and some glitter (Distress Stickles are the perfect ‘spice’ here… they are discontinued, but still a fave of mine.  Buy some if you find them!) are the finishing touches for my fun FALL card!

I’m not gonna lie, autumn cards are my favorite and I love seeing the creative mix of cards by everyone this time of year.

Tuesday with Tara {take 337} Meow & You

Happy Tuesday!

Today I’m sharing a simple card I put together using one of the stenciled backgrounds I created a few weeks ago.  I used a combination of two stencils, a Window Panes design by MFT and a ‘nature’ design from Tim Holtz which I layered over it.  I worked with a few colors of Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool to get this subtle design.  Since this background didn’t work with my snowman card, I thought it would be sweet with the cats from this mini meows stamp set by MFT!

Since I had a background of full color, I stamped my images in simple black ink, just added a tiny bit of dimension with some Nuvo drops on the hearts.  I used the die cut stitched sentiment strips to add one of the cute sayings that is included with this stamp set.

It’s a super simple card, but it has some fun details that are sure to make the recipient smile 🙂 I added one more cat with another sentiment inside to carry on the theme… it should make a sweet, non traditional valentine for someone who loves cats!  Hope you like it too!

Inky hugs,

Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 332} Celebrate!

Tuesday, January 4th, 2022

Happy Tuesday & Happy New Year!  It’s my first Tuesday with Tara for 2022… it only seemed right to bling things up a bit and celebrate!

I love glitter paper for maximum bling with minimum mess, and the 6×6 pads by Memory Box give so many colors in one stack!   I’ve paired it with a solid Cardstock layer with the falling stars die by Tim Holtz cut from it, as well as some of the additional stars cut from the glitter paper itself.

I kept this card really simple, with an embossed sentiment by MFT and a little mouse who snuck in to help out with the sparkle, lifting a star as high as he can!

I had two things in mind when I was making this card… but I tried to keep it neutral enough that it could perhaps be used for a variety of occasions!  First, of course, was a card for the new year!  I try to make one every year and I tend to forget to send them to anyone, so… lol.  I think this will also be a cute card for a new baby or any other celebratory occasion!

It’s a pretty simple card overall, but it carries lots of punch with all the glitter!  I hope you like it and I hope 2022 is a year full of creative days for all of us!

Inky hugs,

Tara
