Tell us or show us in a project why YOU are glad to live in a world where there are Octobers!

My Answer

Well, when I think of October, I think of rich colors, textures and warmth : ) . I hope you see this come through in the cards I created using Masquerade Ball!

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:

It’s sometimes hard to photograph gold, so please bear with me on this photo.  All of that totally blinged out gold is courtesy of DCWV gilded paper stack + vellum pack.  Two gorgeous packs of paper for a wonderful price.  Talk about making a ton of ready made cards.

Honor Society Challenge…Wild and Free

Hello It’s Tyra and today I will share some of what I made with my latest Clique Kits  Kit Haul . The theme is “Wild and Free” and so I thought I would create a few cards and add in a few feathers here and there.  Here goes!9457536_orig Happy Days Card Clique Kits August Release Just Tyra

For you card makers out there, this kit is packed with a ton of goodness to create cards to your heart’s desire.  Even the packaging is beautiful.  I created the middle feather from packaging used for the wood hearts.

In the second card I reused the gold polka dot washi tape from some of the embellishment packaging for my card.

Thank You Card Clique Kits August Release Just Tyra

HB2U

Hey crafty people!  Today I’m playing along with the latest Runway Inspired Challenge. Here is the challenge picture:

And here is my take on that cute outfit:

HB2U card JustTyra_v2

I decided to create a “Happy Birthday card, using card stock from Allison Kreft for the base, added a layer of vellum with a few holes punched here and there, and finally letters from Pinkfresh studio. I also emphasized lines (stripes) in this card, similar to the seam lines in the jacket that flow into the crease lines in the pants.  And yes, I’m still using sequins (sequins are still a little trendy, right?).

Take care and thanks for stopping by! xo, Tyra

 

 

 

 

 

 

Honor Society Challenge…July

9457536_orig

Hello It’s Tyra and today I’m participating in the Clique Kits Honor Society July Blog Share! I enjoyed playing with the beautiful Allison Kreft papers and I managed to make a few more layouts and cards.  Let’s get to the pictures, shall we?

 

 

 

Notebook_Scrapbooking_JustTyraI did something a little different with this first layout.  I had a leather bound journal sitting around with several clear picture pockets. I created this journal entry and added a few embellishments. I love the way it looks and I will probably continue to journal this way when I have the chance.

A traditional layout, and then, of course…
