Tiddly Inks - Fabby Friday!


Hi there! It's Fabby Friday time over at Tiddly Inks. I'm still obsessed with the new release. I can't stop making cards with these gorgeous images! Here, I used Sweet Tooth - Cute As A Cupcake. I was inspired by this beautiful floral paper and decided to colour Sweet Tooth to match. The yellow is a bit out of the box for me. I don't often use yellow on cards, but I think it works with this one. I added some dazzling diamonds to her dress and shoes, and couldn't help but add some of my favourite chevron ribbon! Thanks for looking, and don't forget to pop over to the Tiddly Inks Blog so see all the amazing creations from the DT. Have a Fabulous weekend!

Tiddly Inks New Release

Hi there! I am back with some exciting news! My last post was my submission card for the Tiddly Inks designs team, and I am completely surprised and super excited to say that I won a spot!!!!! I have been a big fan of Tiddly Inks for some time now, and can't believe I get to work with Christy and her amazing team for the next few months.

Some more super exciting news is the new release from Tiddly Inks today!

You have to check out all the fabulous new images, and creations from the design team.

Here's a look at what the four cards I made :)

 

First I used Wryn - Smart Cookie to create this card and pillow box set. I was thinking it would be perfect, with this sentiment, to give to a little girl who's doing well in school so I had that in mind when I chose the colours. I love creating co-ordinating tags and gifts to match my cards. It's why I love these digital stamps because I can print them in whatever size I need!

Stamps: Wryn's Cookie (Tiddly Inks)
Ink/Colouring tools: Copic markers
Cardstock: Copic X-Press It. Corrugated Kraft (Fancy Pants)
Papers: Kneehighs (Basic Grey). Glimmer paper (Stampin Up - Dazzling Diamonds)
Accessories: Ellen Hutson doily, Spotlight buttons, sequins and lace, Stampin Up white thread, button and tag die, Prima flower



Next I used this adorable image, Wryn - Have Heart.

 
I only recently purchased the green copic markers I used with this stamp, and they are now my go to greens for a lot of things. They combine perfectly with the soft pink. I wanted to keep the layering relatively simple and the majority of the card white, to really make the image stand out. I often like to cut out the main image and layer it on something else, but I couldn't resist keeping all the little hearts on Wryn's left.
 
Stamps: Wryn's Heart (Tiddly Inks)
Ink/Colouring tools: Copic markers. Stampin Up black marker pen
Cardstock: Copic X-Press It
Papers: Just Splendid (My Mind's Eye)
Accessories: Heart Trio die (The Cat's Pajamas), Stampin Up button and white thread, Spotlight sequins
 
 
 
Next is my card using the Sweet Tooth - Semi Sweet image. I wanted to try something a little different so I watercoloured the background, very loosely, and only used two shades of colour for the girl, grey and a grey/purple.
 
 
Not sure if you can see in the photo, but I added some sparkle to the cupcake icing. I had fun making this card as it's a bit more "Clean & Simple" than I'm used to, but the image is soooo adorable I couldn't resist colouring it up! I used the little skulls and crosses that come with the girl to make a tag at the top.
 
Stamps: Semi Sweet (Tiddly Inks)

Ink/Colouring tools: Copic Markers, watercolour paints
Cardstock: Tim Holtz watercolour paper. Copic X-Press It
Papers:  -
Accessories: Kaisercraft red pearls, Stampin Up dazzling diamonds, The Cat's Pajamas grey twine, Simon Says Stamp Bundle Of Stitched Shapes die
 
 
 
And finally I have this card featuring Sweet Tooth - Let Us Eat Cake. I loooove this image. I know that in the future I'm going to make some birthday invitations and party favours with this. But for now I couldn't resist colouring her in a sweet peach for this card. I added some dazzling diamonds to her dress and crown too.
 
 
Thanks for looking! And be sure to check out what the rest of the design team have made, you're going to love them all!
Have a great weekend

Tiddly Inks Design Team Call




I'm so excited it's time for another design team call at Tiddly Inks! I was unable to enter last time, but I certainly can this time! I am a huge fan of their stamps. I have so many favourite images that I couldn't decide what to use so I thought I'd just show a card I made a few days ago with a digital image I recently chose from a challenge win - Fairy Fae! I wanted to make this card for an older girl, and so I used grey/black for most of it, and a gorgeous peach for her wings. And what fairy wings wouldn't be complete without a little sparkle ;)
