Tiddly Inks: Home Sweet Home

Hi, everyone!! It's fabulous Tiddly Inkspiration friday! I hope we can all get some crafting time in this weekend. My project today features the adorable Home Sweet Home image on a card I made for my neighbor who moved into a new home.

I started out with a gray card base and blended on pigment ink over a brick stencil to create the background. The image is colored with Copics and then mounted flat on an angle. The sentiment is stamped in black onto a red banner. I added stitching with a white gel pen and a few sequins to finish off the card.

So what crafty project do you have in mind this weekend? Thanks for stopping by!!

Tiddly Inks Challenge #174: Thank You

Hey there, Tiddly Inks fans! We are kicking off a new challenge today where we want to see all of your thank you cards and projects. You can never have enough thank you cards on hand so it's nice to add one to my stash.

Shy Violet Digital Stamp
I started out stamping flowers onto white cardstock in various pink and purple inks. Then, I stamped the thank you sentiment and layered it for the center focal point. I secured Shy Violet to the inside panel with foam tape and then added a twine bow before securing it to the purple card base.

It's hard to see on the image that I added clear wink of stella to the headband, shoes, and African violets. A few sparkly embellishments on the front panel finish off the card.

Don't forget to checkout the #tiddlyspiration by the rest of the design team before joining in on the fun! I can't wait to see your thank you themed projects too!

Tiddly Inkspiration: Ricky Winter Light Wishes

Hi, everyone!! Today the design team and I have some fabulous Tiddly Inkspiration to get you in the crafty mood this weekend. Recently, I was asked to create a birthday banner for a friend of the family. His nickname is "Bear" so using Ricky Winter Light Wishes was a no brainer.

I used one of the free digital papers that was included with the set as the background and colored up the image with Copics. I cut the banner using a digital file from the Silhouette Studio design store and strung white seam binding through the holes.

With this post, I'm also really excited to announce I have been invited to be a permanent member of the Tiddly Inks DT. What a tremendous honor. Thank you to Christy and to the other members of the design team! I am forever grateful for this opportunity and look forward to bringing more Tiddly Inks inspiration your way!!
