Jungle Littles with Tammy

Happy Monday, friends! Today, I have a fun Jungle themed Valentine, using one of my favorite Hello Bluebird sets, Jungle Littles! I wanted to make this card a bit larger to fit all those gorgeous leaves and darling critters, so I decided on an A6 card (measuring 4 1/2 X 6 1/4″). I began by cutting a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock to 4 !/4 X 6″, and ink blended the background using Distress Oxides in Milled Lavender, Seedless Preserves, and a little Black Soot to darken the edges. Then, using a paintbrush, I splattered some water and then...

Snow Play with Tammy Stark

Good Morning, crafty friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! Even though it doesn’t snow where I live, I couldn’t resist making a sweet Winter themed card using Snow Play. Keep reading to see how quickly this card came together! First, from Bristol smooth cardstock, I cut my backdrop using the Snowy Sky Scene Die. I inked the background with a combination of Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxides. I lightly inked the bottom edges of the snow drifts with Tumbled Glass, and attached it to an A2 card base, using foam tape to pop up the bottom snow drift. From white glittered cardstock, I cut snowflakes using the Frosty Flakes Die, and set aside. Next, I stamped the penguins and snowballs from Snow Play and the trees from Frosty Friends. I colored all images with Copic markers and cut out using the coordinating dies. I arranged all my images on my card, and attached with foam tape for dimension. Next, I glued on the die cut snowflakes using just a dot of glue in the middle and lightly bent the edges up for dimension. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment from Snow Play with embossing ink onto dark gray cardstock, and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I cut a strip, and attached it to the upper right corner to finish off my card. Thanks so much...
