Yes, lot’s of texture and color, somewhat of a departure away from my love of clean and simple, BUT I think I like it! Stop on over the Die-Namites blog and play! Take care! xo, Tyra



Playing Along: Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes!

Hi It’s Tyra and I wanted to share these funky little tags I created using Distress inks and a little ribbon from Allison Kreft:

JustTyra Funky Dress Tab


Isn’t that dress perfect for a party?  I’m going to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog where this week the theme is Anything Goes!  I don’t very often play with Distress Inks likes this, but I must say that I enjoyed it! I think I’m going to continue mixing (literally and figuratively speaking – ha!) things up here and there. Change is good sometimes, no?

Thank so much for stopping by!!


P.S. Stay tuned for more and more exciting news this month! Everything is just totally bananas around here!

Time Savers: Back to School Tag

With school starting next month (time flies, doesn’t it?), I searched my stash for stamps with a “back-to-school” theme and I created the following tag:

Teacher Tag JustTyra_edited-1

The tag above was created with Sweet Stamp Shop images, Studio Calico Alphas and Inspiration Ave’s stamped sentiments.  I colored in the images with Copics of various colors.   I was pretty satisfied with the finished product except for the fact that I have more than one child, which means  I have more than one teacher to create a gift tag for.


So I made a photocopy of the tag using my supper cheap and old HP Inkjet onto more Neenah card stock. I used my lil’ inkers tag die cut the copy, resulting in:

Teacher Tags Just Tyra


Two tags that are nearly identical.  I added some shading to the glue bottle on the copy similar to the original.  A true timesaver!    That’s all for now. Take care and thanks for stopping by!
