Adorable new Wryn at Tiddly Inks!

Hi ya everyone!
  I know I've been missing in action!  I had a scientific conference to go to but I'm back!  I had a marvelous time in San Franscisco and learned a lot!  But boy did I miss my family and my craft area!  Here is an adorable card I made using the super cute Patriotic Wryn from Tiddly Inks!
I love that Christy Croll (designer and owner of Tiddly Inks) left the flag open so you could put whatever you wanted.  I thought a cute Olympic flag was perfect for this time of year!  Can't wait to show you the other card I made with her for our next challenge!

Everyday Card using Some Odd Girl Image

Hi ya everyone!I made a simple card using the adorable Some Odd Girl - Nouveau Girl - Grow. I love this stamp and the accents and sentiments that come with her are fabulous!
I colored her dress before anything else and felt I had a slight dilemma with the apple. I didn't think red would look good with this color of dress. Although, the more I thought about it the more I thought it might look fantastic! Once I colored the apple I decided that red accents were the perfect pop of color with this blue green dress!
Once I had the general layout of the card using paper from Bo Bunny and flowers and lace I wanted to pop in that red with more accents. I added red roses and a bit of red card stock behind the sentiment to bring out that red. Often times adding pops of color will really make a card/creation come to life in a new way.
I hope you enjoyed my simple card today and got a few ideas how to add your own pop of color to any creation. Don't forget about our Facebook Fun day coming this weekend! Also, we have a new release that will be showcased starting on Monday and you won't want to miss these beauties!

A Wild Birthday!

Hi ya everyone!
  Today I want to share a little project I did for my daughter's 9th birthday invitations.  She is really in to animal print.  May I say that she did not get this from me.  I think maybe her Aunt Erin as she has much more style then I'll ever have.  Because of Anna's love of animal print I chose to do her invites in a fun pink zebra print.  She also loves black and pink!  I used the fabulous tutorial on Splitcoaststampers for a Card purse.
I used an adorable candle stamp that came with the Some Odd Girl clear stamp set - Birthday Mae.  The sentiment is from My Craft Spot - Birthday Wishes Set.  Anna loved this little invite set and so did her friends!

Created from Color

Kristy creator and owner of Some Odd Girl and I have two Copic classes we offer to anyone online.  The classes are all modeled from the Copic certified courses.  Though you won't receive certification you will learn the information! 

Now, Kristy and I are sharing lots of fun information on the Created from Color blog too.  Today, I discuss using Copic's Opaque White!  It's a fabulous white pigment for adding highlights to images.  People often ask how to use it.  Today's tutorial shows you a few ways to use it and what tools to use too!  Check it out right HERE!!!

Hi ya everyone,
  I needed to create a sympathy card for someone and well these are always hard for sure.  It took me a long time to create.  I liked the sentiment for a sympathy card - you really do want to remember all the special moments with a person and not just the day when it was over.
I used a number of new dies from Cheery Lynn Designs in my cuttlebug and I must say they are pretty fabulous.  They include the flowers, the greenery and the lacey doiley!  I love I would highly recommend them to anyone!
