Tuesday with Tara {take 393} Coffee. Craft. Repeat.

Coffee.  Craft.  Repeat.

I love creating anything with a coffee theme… so pairing the Papercut Cafe Sizzix dies and this coffee ring & sentiment stamp by Altenew definitely made me happy!    Today I’m sharing the two cards I created on my Facebook LIVE on Saturday, both have the same design but different color schemes.  We focused on the process of cutting and assembling these mini Tim Holtz Colorize dies and just how cute they are!

My first card, in shades of pink, orange & yellow, was composed with a painty background I created with Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays!  It wasn’t particularly pretty as a large piece, but the smaller elements were perfect for cutting the coffee cup layers as well as for the border strip on this card.  I finished off the pre-printed tag with a wide yellow silk ribbon.

My second card was made from an inky background I made during the live, which included Distress Inks & Distress Oxide together in shades like Squeezed Lemonade & Peacock Feathers.  I finished it with a piece of crinkle ribbon I had previously inked up in shades of green.

I love seeing the same design in two different color schemes, and had so much fun creating these whimsical coffee cups with bold colors!  Please follow me on Instagram this week to see more completed cards I made with the other cups that were assembled on Facebook live!  If you missed it, you can also catch the replay on Facebook HERE.

Hope to see you soon!

Inky hugs,


Tuesday with Tara {take 389} Flowers & Prayers

Happy Tuesday! If there’s one thing I’ve been reminded of lately, it’s that everybody is going through something.  We all have our own struggles and burdens that we often carry alone.  Something as simple as a kind word or a handmade card can really offer encouragement!

I made this card with that in mind, and unfortunately a friend lost a loved one recently and I had to use it.
I’ve used:
My creative studio space is halfway packed up right now as we anticipate moving soon (fingers crossed) but I’ve really missed getting inky, so I’m challenging myself to work with what I’ve got in the room still!  I’ll be channeling my ‘clean and simple’ since white card stock is something I did keep a lot of!  LOL
Inky hugs,

Tuesday with Tara {take 388} Party like it’s your birthday!

Happy Tuesday!  I’m back, after a bit of a break, to share a Tuesday with Tara project with you!

I created this card with the intent of sharing it for the April Inspiration Hop over at SNS, but I didn’t feel like it fit the vibe of the hop with the kit being featured!  The card I shared (linked in the post previous to this) does, however, use the same sentiment with a completely different feel!  I hope you like them both 🙂
I’ve used:
Birthday Banners Stamp & Die Set by Hampton Art Stamps
Blossom Stencil by Tim Holtz
Distress Mica Spray, Bronze

I started with a panel inked with both shades of pink and a touch of brown at the edges.  I then applied the texture paste through the stencil over the pink and set it aside to dry.  Once dry (I left it overnight, just in case!) I started to ink over it and wiped with a damp rag to reveal the shiny pink blossoms!
I assembled the base & layers of the card, then spritzed with the mica spray & again wiped off the blossoms for a bit of extra shimmer & grunge (why not have both!?).  The bird, bling & sentiment were all added as finishing touches once everything was dry to touch.
The splatters of shimmer remind me of the rainy spring days we’ve been having here in NC!  I’m looking forward to enjoying a bit of sunshine finally!
