Let's Get Krafty

Hi, everyone! Welcome back to another Tiddly Inks challenge! This time we are getting krafty showcasing projects that use kraft cardstock.

I couldn't resist using My Beach Boy as a final farewell to summer -- I mean, let's get real -- it's technically Autumn as of last week and the weather is turning cooler everyday. I just hate to see summer go! Anyone else with me??

The tag and friend word dies were included in my recent Stamp of Approval box of goodies. The sentiment is die cut from orange cardstock and layered three times for dimension. The top part of the word die is secured directly to the tag which is popped up with foam tape. A good dose of glossy accents adds a wet look to the sentiment, sunglasses, nose of the dog, and the crabby eyeballs.

The darker kraft cardstock layer with the stitched oval cut from the middle is inked up with vintage photo distress ink. Several strands of orange and green twine compliment the overall color scheme.

Don't forget to check out more inspiration from the rest of the design team and link up your projects too! I can't wait to see how you get krafty this week!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Fabby Friday Birthday Wishes

Hi, everyone! Today is Fabby Friday over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog. For my project, I created this birthday card using Wryn Birthday Girl. I followed Deconstructed Sketch #188 for my layout.

I colored her up with Copics, trimmed her out using my Silhouette Cameo, and popped her up with foam tape. The doodles on the purple layer were also done on my Cameo using a black sketch pen.


RV-52/55 + V-000

 A few sequins and a lime green bow finish off the card.

I hope you have a chance this weekend to get crafty with your Tiddly Inks images. Don't forget to share your crafty projects with us over at the Tiddly Inks Facebook page so we can see how you've been inspired.

Tiddly Inks: Don't Be Square Challenge

Hello friends! Today I am happy to share my design team project for the new Tiddly Inks Challenge: Don't Be Square. I made this thank you card using Wryn Floating Along for my mom's friend who was so kind to invite my kids over this summer to swim in her pool.

I designed the summer fun circle and imported the image into Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, printed it out on cryogen white cardstock and then cut it out using my Cameo. I then secured it to a stand-up easel card base.

The edges of the sentiment are inked with squeezed lemonade and worn lipstick distress inks. The bow was created from white seam binding which was inked in worn lipstick and picked raspberry distress inks and then secured to a yellow button.

Wryn is colored up with Copics. I added a dab of fruit punch Stickles to the flowers and diamond Stickles to her swimsuit to give the card some sparkle.

Don't forget to link up your project to play along with our challenge this week! I can't wait to see how you are inspired. If you need more ideas, check out what the rest of the design team has to offer!

Fabby Friday Bathing Beauty

Hi everyone! It feels great to be part of the Tiddly Inks design team again with such a wonderful group of talented ladies! Here is my Fabby Friday make using the one and only Bathing Beauty digi. I colored her up with Copics and created the watercolor background layer using my new Zig clean color real brush markers.

Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers:

Orange (070)
Peacock Blue (038)
Persian Blue (032)

This design sketch inspired me to make a birthday card because you can never have enough on hand. I tend to make cards on demand and never have a stock pile when I actually need them.

The layers are secured with foam tape and I added in a few mix-and-match sequins to follow along with the design. Here's a close up:

We have a fabulous line up of projects to share with you today, so be sure to check out the rest of the design team makes here.

Have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by!!
