Tuesday with Tara {take 392} Birthday Birds

Since I’m inspired by our Windows of Wonder Inspiration Hop theme, I thought I’d share another window themed card!  This is another mini slim- a gatefold card that measures 3.5×6″ and features frames from the Picket Fence Slimline System, together with Tim Holtz Silhouette birds.

As you can see, I actually have two cards to share… one of which was completed during my Facebook Crafty Live last Saturday!

I’ve used the stitched frame for the front (open left) panel and the bare tree/branches die for the middle (open right) panel.  Behind them both I’ve attached a slightly larger die cut square, which was inked to resemble the sunny sky.  A die cut bird is perched on the branch, colored up in bold red.

I die cut & scored the panels in advance, then completed the card on a Facebook live video, which I’ll link to below- I’d love to have you watch it!

Hopefully you were able to catch the replay of the live! If it doesn’t show up embedded in this post, please click here to see it on Facebook 🙂

I’ve included a few more photos of the open card on my personal blog, if you’d like a closer look!

Thanks for stopping by!

Inky hugs,

Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 384} A Paper Hug

Happy Tuesday!  Today I’m sharing a quick & easy mini slimline card inspired by the Paper Hug sentiment stamp by Picket Fence stamps!  I’ve paired the sentiment with this sweet snowman die cut by Penny Black, called Snowman Joy.   I die cut him out of watercolor card stock and added some subtle touches of color with watercolor pencils.

I was playing around with some watercolor paints recently, and painted this ombre panel on a scrap of watercolor card stock.  It was fun to play around with blending and ended up being a perfect background for my snowman!  I layered it simply on teal cardstock (it was literally a scrap that already had a torn edge).  Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide ink ended up being a beautiful match to my pieces, so the sentiment was stamped on white with it.  It’s simple & whimsical and I hope it brings a smile your way!

Inky hugs,

Tara

I’m Dreaming of a White…

… martini? 😀  Today’s Random Act of Cardness prompt on the Scrap ‘n Stamp challenge page is WHITE! Here’s my take on a white card:

 

 

I don’t know about you, but some days when the holiday crunch is getting to me, this might just about sum up how I feel. 😀  As a festive card, I wanted lots of sparkle, so I started off with a Picket Fence martini stencil and some moonstone Nuvo glimmer paste. While that dried, I cut the My Favorite Things martini glass from some white glitter cardstock as well as two more from regular cardstock so I could layer them together. I also added a couple of layers to the MFT sassy sentiment, which I embossed with some sparkle embossing powder. I think we all know how tricky shine is to photograph, but this close-up at least gives a hint:

 

 

If you’re still working on holiday cards, I hope you’ll consider making a white card of your own, and adding it to the challenge page for a chance to win some Scrap ‘n Stamp spending money! Thanks for checking in today.
