Be Brave

Hello! I’m here to share a fun card I created for Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking’s Galley Idol 2014.  I’m far into watching American Idol (Go Caleb! Go Jena!) so  I thought this was the perfect opportunity to get in on the fun!

Here are one of the cards I created:

Brave Card JustTyra

 

I used We R Memory Keepers shape n tape washi tape for the gray decorative strips. I also used washi for all the butterflies.  I used my computer and printer to create the sentiment “be brave.”

“Brave,” the song sung by Sara Bareillis and the Disney Movie by the same name served as a source of inspiration.  Whenever I have the opportunity to create just for the sake of creating, I find myself using whatever song, quote or story I’m inspired by at any given moment. I’ll share more about how I channel that inspiration in a special announcement this weekend (smile).

Take care and thanks so much for stopping by!

You Are The Best

Happy Monday! Today I’m home with the kids and decided to play along with one of my favorite challenges,  the Runway Inspired Challenge:

Diane_von_Furstenberg_004_1366.450x675

This iconic Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress features a bold pattern with a lot of movement. Love it! Let’s get to the card I created:

Encouragement Cards

I cut out banners and used a variety of border stamps and different inks in colors similar to the dress.  I also added vellum banners and washi banners to help create the illusion of movement.  I added paper string and stapled the banners to bring this card together.  So fun and fast!  Thanks so much for stopping by! xo, Tyra

Love, Part 1

I’m playing along with the Ready-Made Embellishment Challenge in the Moxie Fab World and I created a card using some fun elements from Bella Blvd:xoxo_card

It was super easy to die cut the paper using my favorite curvy die from Simon Says Stamp and add the ready-made banner. Super CAS and super quick! Thanks so much for stopping by!  Love, Part 2 coming soon! xo- Tyra

So Awesome

Today, I’m playing along with the Moxie Fab World Challenge: Metal, Wood & Cork. I thought to myself  “metal, wood and cork? what in the world will I create?” I ended up creating a super simple card that I love — from the texture of the paper to the shiny metal clip, the faux cork tape and the wood heart.  This card makes a great masculine card.  I think I’ll save it for the husband:

Just Be Yourself

Today I’m playing along with the latest CASE Study Challenge.  Check out the beautiful inspiration photo:

There is so much inspiration from this photo, however, the red and turquoise/teal (?) is what caught my eye and inspired me to create this simple one layer card:

be_yourself_card

I love, love the clear and white sequins — a great way of embellishing a card, without taking away from the main design.  Thanks so much and stopping by and I hope you enjoy your weekend! xo- Tyra
