Tuesday with Tara {take 438} Hello Friend

Happy Tuesday and Hello friends!  Today’s card is a throwback that has me ready to CASE my own design and make something new… hope it brings you some inspiration as well!

Today’s card uses a fun combo of products to make a sweet and simple card… florals by Hampton Art Stamps (Hello Beautiful set), Hello There from Bold Text #1 dies by Tim Holtz and the little sweet friend is from Honey Bee Stamps Bitty Buzzwords.  Of course, I’m still playing around with my new Distress color, so today you see a simple color combo of Distress Oxide Inks- Saltwater Taffy and Twisted Citron.

Of course, there’s more fun details like the stitched border (love this nesting set by Prism Studio) , 3D foam squares and some lime sequins by Studio Katia!  I wish I could tell you where the pink card base came from, but I’m pretty impressed how well it matched the Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide ink! (I think the Azalea card stock by Prism Studio is very close)

I’m pretty pleased with this card… really want to play around with other sentiments from the die set in combo with stamped greetings!  Hope you like it too 🙂

Inky hugs,

Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 437} Easter Wreath

Happy Tuesday!  Easter is just around the corner so I thought I’d use my new Vault Funky Floral Wreath die set by Tim Holtz to create an Easter card!   It’s a pretty simple card, just die cuts & bling on a Kraft A2 card base, but the variety of colors & shapes definitely keeps it interesting!
I used a mix of scraps of papers I’d previously inked up using a variety of Distress Inks & sprays for all the pieces you see, except for the bow & lettering cut from glittery card stock!  It was a lot of fun to mix and match the dies in this set in some softer, springy shades.

I didn’t have a die cut sentiment for Easter, so I decided to have some fun & do some mixing & matching!  I’ve paired a script “happy” from Shadow Script #2 (which I’m kinda surprised is still available in the SNS online store as I type!  It’s an oldie, but a goodie!) together with assorted letters from one of the sentiments in Bold Text #1 set (Best Day Ever).  I love how together it makes a whimsical greeting that really suits the mix of florals on the wreath!

The finishing touch on the card is more bling from the Spring Florals Mix Ups set by Buttons & Galore.  I love this mix for spring and suggest you snag some while you can.  LOL
FYI- if the Easter eggs in the background of the card photos caught your eye, you can check out my posts how I made them HERE (Coffee Filter Tie Dyed Eggs) & HERE (Distress Collaged Eggs).  Both are fun techniques to give you some pretty eggs to decorate with year after year!
Inky hugs,
Tara

Tuesday with Tara {take 432} Wildflowers

You belong among the wildflowers.

Happy Tuesday!  Last week I got inky on my Crafty Live with the new Scorched Timber Distress, and I was determined to make something with one of my backgrounds for this week!   I kept things pretty simple and die cut one of the backgrounds (I believe this one features the two sprays together- Distress Spray Stain and Distress Oxide Spray) with my new Stitched Oblong STAX dies by MFT.  I love how the mix of the two sprays gives almost a dirty chalkboard effect.

I embossed a wildflowers sentiment (this is from an older Gina K set that it still in stock!) in white, then scattered a few mini brushstrokes flowers along one edge.  I’d pre-cut a variety of flowers in yellows & blue from some backgrounds so these were ready to go!

I added some subtle detail to the background with an Altenew stencil called “Leaf Bed” and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink, then decided to add it to a coordinating envelope as well!  I added a few sequins as a finishing touch…

I hope this brings a bit of sunshine to your day, especially if you’re experiencing the endless days of winter wherever you are…

Inky hugs,

Tara
