Thanks for all you do!

As promised I'm back to share the second card I made for my niece's teacher for the end of the year!

My niece is moving up to middle school next year (I can't believe it!)- I made her teacher a simple yet pretty card using this Hero Arts Large Flower background (cling) stamp!

Thanks teacher
I stamped the flower image in white ink of kraft card stock and colored with Copic markers- I love the muted tones the kraft paper soesntoncopics, even when using the bright colors! I diecut  a banner flag and added the thanks diecut (Mama Elephant) to keep the card simple, I didn't want too much to take away from the stamped image.  I finished the card with faux stitching and a couple of clear sequins!

I've finally gotten the chance to clean off my craft desk so here's hoping for more cards in the near future!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Super teacher


Long time no post!! This week is the last week of school for 2 of my nieces, and my sister asked me to make some cards for their teachers.

For my younger *almost 3rd grader* niece, their class has had a superhero theme so I knew I wanted to use the You're Super stamp set from My Favorite Things!

Super teacher

I created the layout to look like a page out of a comic book using elements from the same stamp set, the buildings were made using a Paper Smooches diecut. Colored the Supergirl using Copics coordinating with the patterned papers, finished it all with some Spectrum Moir sparkle here and there and my card is done!

More on the second teacher card I made in the next post!

Thanks for Picking Me!

Happy May!

A new month means a new challenge at Tiddly Inks! And this month we're BLOOMING with flowers!

I 'picked' this sweet Poppy Wryn and gave her a rainbow colored poppy dress!

Picking Me

I'm still in a bit of a card making funk... I recently started getting into crocheting cute amigurumi critters and totally got hooked! (more on that in a different post!) - but hoping to get back into it soon- coloring this rainbow of flowers definitely helped & I have a few un-inked stamps calling my name!

Be sure to head over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog for all the details on the BLOOMING BEAUTIFUL challenge!
