Tiddly Inks Movie and Book Challenge

Hey ya everyone!  I am taking a bit of a creative break this week with the exception of a few projects I made awhile back.  Sometimes to get the mojo flowing you have to step back and just enjoy life.  While I refuel though, I wanted to remind you that Tiddly Inks has a new and awesome challenge.  I know crafters either love to watch movies while they craft or take a break and read!!! So, today's challenge is to create a project inspired by a movie or book!  Check out all the details here!

Happy as Happy Gets!

Hi ya everyone!  Today, I'm sharing a simple card with you...why you ask...well...my coloring mojo is on hiatus.  I don't know why, but I've needed a coloring break.  SP & Company stamps, inks and buttons are perfect for my unfortunate need for no coloring. 

Often, coloring for a card and putting it together can take a very long time too and  I've been busy with family and a new job so being able to grab items that match is a perfect solution.  SP & Company offers these gorgeous buttons with matching inks!  I grabbed the two that match and threw this card together using the Chevron background stamp inking it up with the Ocean Waves and Sandcastle inks.  Then matched the same colors to the buttons!  EASY!  I also used an adorable sentiment from the Sunshine Emma set.

Be You, Be Crazy

Hi ya everyone!  Today, Tiddly Inks is releasing a number of beautiful clear stamp sets.  You can see all the new clear stamps on Christy's blog.  There is also a 15% off sale for all clear stamps!  Make sure to head over and check out all the details!

I created the layout above using a number of fun products.  The flower stamps are all from the Home With Harmony set at Tiddly Inks.  The ink is the new ink from SP & Company called Avocado.  The other items in the layout are from my April Cocoa Daisy set and add-ons.  I love the Cocoa Daisy sets as it makes scrapping so much easier for me.  I love making layouts but had always been intimidated by all the items that I didn't want to piece together myself.  These sets are perfect!

Smiles Across the Miles

Hi ya everyone!  Today, I have something a bit different for me.  You all know how I LOVE my Copics, but I also love playing around with all my fun ink pads.  All of these adorable SP & Company stamps were inked up with my Versamagic inks.  I used the Chevron, Medium Polka dot and Sunshine Emma stamps from SP & Company on Neenah cardstock.  I loved combining the colors right on the stamp for a great affect and chalk inks work GREAT with clear stamps too!  Make sure to head over and join Challenge #8 - Fun with Inks to win a prize!

Quacks and Kisses at Tiddly Inks

Hi ya everyone!  It's Tiddly Tuesday and there is a new challenge on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.  I created this adorable card using the Tiddly Inks image Danny's Duck.  Of course he is all colored up in my Copics.  I added a bit of texture to his pj's using some colorless blender on a terry cloth towel.  The bling is from Prima and the paper is from Echo Park Bundle of Joy.

A Little Tiddly in the House

Hi ya everyone!  Today, I'm sharing a card that I created for the Tiddly Inks and Whimsy magazine team-up.  I used the adorable Celebrate Joyfully from Tiddly Inks.  I paired her with some adorable papers from Whimsy, as well as lace and die cuts.  The awesome lace is lace tape from Whimsy and I love that stuff! 

Make sure to hop over to the Tiddly Inks blog today and see all the gorgeous team creations!

OH, Happy Day!

Hi ya everyone!  I'm sharing at SP & Company today and thought I would share here too!  I made a layout using a whole ton of gorgeous goodies from SP & Co too!


I chose the adorable Build a Banner 1 stamp set and coordinating dies for my little banner that says happy.  It fit so perfect and those banners are the perfect size for cards and layouts.


I also used the new flamingo pink buttons that are in so many fun sizes and styles.  The Oh, Happy Day! sentiment was from the Glam Girl Emma set and the sunshine stamp from Sunshine Emma set.


You can see I added a little subtle hint of more sunshine stamps in the background paper behind the picture.  Another stamp I used was the medium polka dot background stamp behind the picture as well.  These stamps add such a nice subtle texture to card stock and I couldn't resist making the plain a little more fancy.

Daddy card and Trend Challenge at SP & Company!

Hi ya everyone!  Did you know that I'm part of the SP & Company team now??  I am thrilled to be part of this super talented group first, and also, the number of amazing items that Sam has in the works for SP & Company is simply drool worthy :)  The above image is one of them.  This is a little sneak peak of an image to come to SP & Co this month.  The set is called Best Dad Ever and has a number of fabulous and fun sentiments for Father's Day!
