Tiddly Inks Treasure Hunt and Blog Hop!!!

Photobucket
 Welcome me hearties to the beginning of a Birthday Bash to celebrate the one year Birthday of Tiddly Inks by the wonderfully talented artist Christy Croll!!  If you've just happened by today and want to join in the fun please START HERE at the Tiddly Inks Shop!  There is BOOTY to be found and we have a special treasure hunt...so in order to be in the KNOW start at the shop!  Now if you've come here from our special guest Nicole's Blog - you are on the right treasure map!!! 
Now for my projects!  I loved so many of the NEW RELEASE images that I had a hard time just picking one.  So I chose THREE - but I have to be honest there are so many gorgeous new releases that you will be seeing them from me for WEEKS!!  Here is the first I chose - HuggaBugga
Oh my gosh - aren't they just adorable - colored in Copics and matched with Basic Grey Paper from Oh Baby! Girl stack.
The imagine sentiment is a part of a collection of stamps that I picked up in a dollar bin at the CKC scrapbook convention!!!
I colored the ribbon with my Copic to have a perfectly matching bow!
I just love this adorable image and had a ton of fun coloring these sweeties and I had to make them the main focus of my card!
Next, I chose to use the sweet Rainbow Dreams!  Ok, who doesn't love a bright and CHEERY card.  Love this image because the rainbow can be tailored to all those yummy papers that you know you have in your stash and are too afraid to use. 
I colored her in Copics.  I also used my clear Spica pen to add some accents.  It's hard to see in the picture but there are accents on the clouds and her wings.
I also chose this GORGEOUS paper from Echo Park.  I love their papers and this is from the the Little Girl Stack.
I used a clear HELLO stamp sentiment from Clear and Simple Stamps.
Last but not least I chose this adorable image called You Are On My Mind.
 She is just too sweet and reminded me a bit of my oldest daughter.  I decided to make something special with this image for my daughter's room.
 She's turning 8 soon and is starting to get into the mode of girls only and girls rule!  I love it because I know it will change ever so fast...LOL.  This project was a bit more work as I cut out letters on my Cricut using the Hannah Montana cartridge.  I did a 3x multicut on cereal boxes. Inked the letters in Black Soot by Tim Holtz, UTEED them and then added some soft pink Perfect Pearls and reheated the UTEE.  I did the same to the chipboard arrow and flower.  The perfect pearls turned a really swirly pink color which looked awesome.  This technique isn't easy - but once I got the hang of it I had fun.
I added gems and flower accents to the large circle chipboard.  Oh and if you are wondering the paper here is also Echo Park.  OH and of course I colored this sweet Tiddly in my Copics!
One last picture of the door hanger on my daughter's door!
Make sure you are collecting the letters associated with Pirate Jane on the way!  You don't want to miss the secret message.
Pictured below is just one of the MANY prizes available!!  In this set of goodies you will find:  Cosmo Cricket 6x6 stack called Boyfriend, A variety of rub-ons, Inkadinkadoo and a Fiskar stamp set.  Also some metal embellishments including a few baby signs and colorful binder clips.  There is also a letter set of stickers and some Suzy Zoo stickers.  There is a collage sticker, crinkle ribbon and another small set of summer splash ribbon!
Now you are off to the wonderful guest designer Alex's blog!!!
