Designing with Clique Kits

This weekend I’m on the Clique Kits Blog, sharing my love of all the different types of adhesives available for paper crafting! Here is sneak at one of my projects:

JustTyra_CliqueKits_Happy_Card_Tyra Babington_1_edited-1

 

Interestingly enough I used three different types of adhesive to create this card (adhesive to the max!):

  • My Scotch ATG Tape Glider Adhesive Applicator  worked perfectly for adhering the blue polka dot panel to the card base
  • Tombow’s  3D Foam Tabs popped out the two smaller paper panels
  • Inkssentials Glossy Accents for the sequins!
  • Find pretty paper kits at  Clique Kits (TYRA10 gets you 10%)
  • Find all the adhesive at Blitsy.  (You can use Big Box Competitor Discounts, yeah the 40% off ones)

Designing with….Chickaniddy!

Hello crafty friends? How are you? I am doing well. The husband and I are balancing work outside of the home with helping a pair of kindergarteners read, enjoying our little preschooler expand his vocabulary by leaps and bounds and taking every single chance we can to grill outside when the weather is nice (hugs to you, Spring).

I realize my posts have been infrequent and I apologize. But I have been super busy busting out (yes I said busting out) designs with some of the fabulous crafty goodness I have been fortunate to get my hands on.

Today I want to share some of the goodness I created featuring Chickaniddy’s Twirly Girly, Date Night and a little bit of Jolly Good. Those names tho’ (I need to ask my sister if I’m using 2015 slang appropriately.)  Chickaniddy’s collection names are just fabulous! Here is what I have designed along with a sneak photo:

Sweet and Simple with the Sweet Stamp Shop and CASology

Hello It’s Tyra and today I’m playing along with the latest CASology challenge where the cue card for this week is: EAT

Week 123 - Eat

I’m sharing this sweet and simple card I created using the “Take Out” set from the Sweet Stamp Shop:

And here is the card I created:

SSS Take Out Card Tyra Babington_edited-1

Since moving back to the midwest, I’m delighted that I can now enjoy a few (truly Americanized) take out restaurants! My favorites are beef and broccoli, shrimp with veggies and rice, rice rice. And did I mention rice? Speaking of rice, I wonder why I have yet to invest  in a rice cooker?  There are so many textures, flavors and variety of rice!  If anyone has a rice cooker, please leave a comment with your recommendation – please?

Sorry for the rambling, back to the CASology challenge.  It’s so nice to play along with card challenges. There’s such a wonderful community cultivated on the  various challenge sites. One last thing about CASology – The design team provide tips called “Design Defined.” When I started to take up an interest in card making, these tips proved to be so valuable to me.  I love to see the new tips posted with each challenge! This to me is what set this talented team a part from many others!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! xo, Tyra

YAY! This Card was recognized!

A “Cut” Above The Rest, featuring Sweet Stamp Shop

Hey Crafty friends, today I want to share a few ways I use my metal nested dies to make a statement.  I’m featuring Sweet Stamp Shop’s Enjoy Calligraphy set — it’s truly a go-to set when you need to create quick and easy cards: Enjoy_Calligraphy__07272.1405390711.386.513   The quotes are in so dreamy, I used one of my dies from a “nested” set to crop out a cloud scene: die cut cloud scene justtyra

To make this card:

If you can Dream Sweet Stamp Shop JustTyra

Super Fast and easy! Drawing off of the inspiration of this quote, I use a metal balloon die to create the same impact in a slightly different way:

 

Sweet Stamp Shop Enjoy Calligraphy Stamp JustTyraHave you noticed a theme here? I used the quote as a source of inspiration for using the cloud paper and the balloon die.
