Happy Monday! Today I am playing along with the Metal, Wood, & Cork Challenge in the Moxie Fab World AND

The latest CASE Study:

I love all of the wood grain! So, using the wood grain as a source of inspiration, I created the following card:

I used a little faux wood grain paper  as a background for the embossed sentiment.  I used a real wood heart, from Studio Calico.  The sentient, and colored card stock and cute sequin are all from the Simon Says Stamp card kit.  Simon Says Stamp also has a curvy die I used to cut the bluish card stock.  I love it! The copper polka dot leaves were die cut from SEI card stock.

That’s all for now. Thanks so much for stopping by! xo- Tyra

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:

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

Happy World Cardmaking Day! I’m celebrating simply by doing what I love, marking cards! Today I’m playing along with the latest Runway Inspired Challenge:

Tanya Taylor Spring 2014

I love how the black and white is on the left and the color is on the right, with a slight offset in the lines.  That flow  and offset of color is what caught my eye and inspired me to create the following card:

The sentiment is simply stated and I thought a pattern of hearts flowing from plain black to color matched the feel of this sentiment perfectly.  Thanks so much for stopping by! xo- Tyra
