Tuesday with Tara {take 414} Sketchy Leaves

I absolutely love autumn!  One of my favorite things about moving south to North Carolina is that I can enjoy, decorate & make cards for autumn all the way through November. It’s especially nice because I love buying new autumn stamps… like these Sketchy Leaves by Tim Holtz!  I almost resisted them, but the big maple leaf caught my eye as I don’t think I’ve got one in all my other sets and it’ll come in handy for Canada Day, too 😉

I decided to start with some simple Distress Ink watercolor- blending a couple colors on the stamp and misting it with water before stamping on watercolor card stock.  I trimmed my card stock to size for a slimline card so I could fit more leaves on it, then had some fun with Mica Sprays over my colorful leaves!  I’ve used a trio of Distress Inks, Wild Honey, Crackling Campfire & Peacock Feathers.  I misted over them with two of the new seasonal Mica Sprays, Sugary Gumdrop & Wonderland, then added a some Antiqued Bronze to tie it all together with the copper embossed sentiment (by MFT).

The mix of the mica sprays is so pretty & shimmery, it was hard to capture in a photo!  It’s one of those combos I decided to try on a whim for this card, and I’m so glad I did!  I’ll be playing with these stamps some more over the next bit… keep an eye on my blog or instagram account for a peek!

Inky hugs,

Oh Canada


Happy Canada Day!

Today is Canada’s 156th birthday, and I wanted to celebrate. What better way than to colour up this fabulous stamp by AALL and Create. But first, let me start with my background.

For the background I am using Stampers Anonymous stencil Brush Mark. I cut a piece of cardstock to fit the left side of my card and stenciled using the stencil along with Distress Oxide ink in Barn Door. I then attached it to a piece of navy cardstock with the mat showing on the left side.

In my mini Misti I stamped the Mountie, being AALL and Create stamp #871, using Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black. I then stamped the flag using Memento Ink in Rhubarb Stalk, and fussy cut both of the pieces out.

I attached the Mountie and the Flag to the card front using foam squares and finished off with embellishments to the Mountie using red gel pen down the outers sides of his pants, adding gold to the buttons and belt buckle, and adding white gel pen to several areas.

I then put my card back in my Misti and Stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Medieval Blue to finish.

Another fun card to make and to celebrate Canada Day. I hope you have enjoyed this card, and I also hope you all have a fabulous Canada Day!

Copic markers used: E40, E41 face; E59 Belt, Stetson trim, Pouch, Congress boots; R27 Red Serge, E39 Hair and E34 Stetson Hat; B00 on Eyes, and B99 for the Banana Pants.

Time to Celebrate

Welcome back to real life after a holiday weekend! Today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt on the Facebook Scrap ‘n Stamp challenge page is CELEBRATE! It would be easy to use this prompt for a Christmas card, but I’m ready to ease back into regular cardmaking. 😉  Here’s what I came up with:



When a card is this clean and simple, it’s nice to add a bit of a WOW factor, and for me, it was cutting the two My Favorite Things martini glasses out of sparkly blue Memory Box glitter cardstock. It’s one of teammate Jess’s “picks”, and it’s a good one! Gorgeous shimmer, and die cuts beautifully. I also cut a few extra martini glasses out of some scraps of blue cardstock – the narrow stems of the glasses are hard to pop up with foam tape, I find.  For a little background interest, I added a light grey stencil of brickwork… perhaps this celebration is taking place in a trendy bar? 😀  The sentiments come from two different MFT stamp sets, Balloon Bundle and A Toast to You. To finish, I layered everything on a grey card base to pick up on the stencilling.



Just a reminder, if you’re doing some after-Christmas shopping, you can use the code 10Lindsey for 10% off your order! Have a great week.
