Tuesday with Tara {take 429} Many Hearts

Happy Tuesday friends!

Today I’ve got a sweet & simple Valentine to share- once again I’m featuring die cut hearts in a variety of colors & sizes.  I had fun arranging the glitter & foil hearts in a “random” pattern I liked for this card, but it needed a little something more.

A textured white background, created using the layered dots dies from Tim Holtz was a fun addition.  It’s a set of 3 dies, but I’ve only used the top two layers for this card (the bottom one is solid).  I finished things off with a sentiment (also Tim Holtz) stamped in purple and assorted sizes of red & purple bling scattered across the card.

I find when you are working on white, it’s nice to add some texture and I think this worked out pretty well!  You would never know the background was part of a Halloween release… I hope it inspires you to pull out some of your supplies and maybe use them for a Valentine this year!

Inky hugs,

Tara

Tuesday with Tara (take 428) Sending You Love

Happy Tuesday, friends!  This card was inspired by all the pretty new Prism Studio papers- there’s a gorgeous range of Whole Spectrum Foil Cardstock  and Whole Spectrum Glitter Cardstock.
Today I chose to showcase a trio of hearts in RUBY.  Isn’t it pretty!?  I’ve also used the Brushed Gold Foil for the die cut “love” sentiment.  I kept this card really simple, cutting 3 hearts the same size from one of the Prism Nesting Hearts dies.  I chose to let the glittery heart be the central one, though it could have gone either way!  I had a 2″ strip of Patterned Paper (from the vintage letters 6×6 pad by IO) and mounted it to the lower portion of an A2 Kraft Card.  I mounted my trio of hearts from the outside in, giving the glittery heart a 3D boost with some foam squares.
The sentiment features stamps & dies from Honey Bee’s ‘Bitty Buzzwords’ set.  I added some foam squares to the edges of the sentiment strip as well so it was level over the central glitter heart.

And here’s another photo so you can get a better look at all that shine!   I know it’s simple, but isn’t it pretty, too!?  It feels like a very classic Valentine to me!  I hope you like it too.

Inky hugs,

Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 427} This calls for coffee

Happy Tuesday!  It seems like all of North America is facing a cold spell right now… this calls for COFFEE!  Today I’m sharing a fun monochromatic card I made for a coffee loving friend’s birthday.

I had fun digging through my supplies (and the scraps on my desk!) for blue pieces I could use for this card.  My coffee cup is from the fabulous Papercut Cafe die set by Tim Holtz.  I cut it from a scrap of Knit Picky Winter Patterned Paper by Lawn Fawn (also used on the middle layer on this card!) along with some other blue scraps, including a fun glittery piece.  I paired it with a white embossed sentiment by  Catherine Pooler.

The background of the front panel features the honeycomb from one of Tim Holtz’s mini stencil sets and some sparkle texture paste.  The bottom layer is from Vicki Boutin’s 6×8 Ready to Use Mixed Media paper.  The stitched layers were cut with the Prism Nesting Stitched Rectangles, which rarely leave my desk these days!  I finished it all off with some blue crinkle ribbon, inked up with a whole lot of Prize Ribbon Distress Ink (seriously, I think my ink pad got double inked so I tried to use some of it up on ribbon!).
I love all the fun textures in this card that I got from using a variety of materials and patterns, all working together because of the simple color palette.  Hope you like it too!
Inky hugs,
Tara
