Winter/Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!

Hey guys!

When I saw the announcement that Coffee Loving Cardmakers would be a Winter/Holiday themed coffee lovers blog hop (say that three times FAST) I just knew I had to participate!

I won an Instagram contest sponsored by Elle’s Studio and the prize pack was chock full of goodies from Elle’s Studio Let’s Eat and Cienna collections.  Combine that goodness with a throwback holiday stamp set from Elle’s Studio and a card was born:

Merry Christmas 2015 Card Elles Studio JustTyra

I super love it (is that even a sentence?)! I have followed Elle’s Studio for quite some time now and I think their collections are super fab! Thank you very much Elle’s Studio!

Check out the entire blog hop HERE.

Sending you off with crafty wishes and washi tape dreams!

Inspired by the beautiful and crisp autumn palette, I created this card:

Featured on Blitsy Today: Cards for Special Occasions

*This is my second post today! Please check out my Craftwell Post here*

Hey!

I’m over on the Blitsy Blog today sharing a card I created using the awesome Memory Box Open Studio Die-Circle Forest Scene die set.  Memory Box dies cuts heavyweight card stock so well.  I used 80 up to 100 pound card stock for this card and I had not one problem whatsoever.

Here is a peek

LOVE how this card came together!  I might pop onto Periscope to share my supply list and comment on the steel dies I used to pull this card together. Would you be interested?

How are you doing today? At the time of this writing, I’m rather fantastic, thankful for healthy kids, my family and an extended weekend coming up.  I love fall in the Midwest, so I’m going to brave taking my kids (by myself) to an orchard.  Sending crafty wishes and washi tape dreams, my dears. Hugs – – Tyra 🙂

Clique Kits Blog Share Featuring Carnival!

Hello It’s Tyra and today I’m finally sharing some of what I made with the Clique Kits  May 2015 Kit, Carnival!

9457536_orig

The challenge:  Anything goes. Create whatever your heart desires and share!

I absolutely loved working with the May kit and I can say that it’s nearly gone!

JustTyra_Clique_Kits_May2015Kit_Smile_Card

The kraft cardstock and alpha letters featured in this month’s kit really inspired me to use more of what was once my favorite color.  Kraft simply goes with everything. I’m in love with kraft again!

JustTyra_Clique_Kits_May2015Kit_Altenew_Hello_Card_edited-1

Amy Tangerine’s Rise and Shine patterned paper needed nothing else but a sentiment.  So I used AlteNew’s Super Script set, featured in the Clique Cards Spring Edition.  Speaking of the Spring card kit, I created cards from that lovely kit as well:
