Wryn with dandelion

There is a big new Tiddly Inks release today! New clear stamps, new digital stamps, new awesomeness! There is no secret I love me a bit of Tiddly Inks and I think I might have a new favourite! I thought I would show a card with her today, because she is super cute! She is called Wryn Wishes.

I did, as I have done a lot lately, decide to make a clean and simple card. CAS card are quickly turning out to be my new favourite, and they take no time to make at all! This one I did with a printed sentiment, a border stamp from Neat and Tangled which I used blue memento ink on, and a background paper from Lili of the Valley. The image is coloured in with Copics as usual.

Copics used: (hair) E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, (skin) E00, E02, E04, E13, E15, (pinks) R20, R22, (green) YG01, YG13, YG63, YG67, G99, (sky) B32, C1, (yellow) Y13, Y38, E97

I will be back with a new card tomorrow!

Grow a little love, CAS

First Tuesday of the month meeeaaans new Tiddly Inks challenge, yey! Our theme this month is Give Love.

Tiddly Inks challenge means Tiddly Inks image, and it wasn’t hard to pick one of my favourites for this. It is called Grow a Little Love. I made a circular frame for her and cropped her to fit inside it, and with her hair peeking slightly outside it looks like a big speech bubble! I coloured in with Copics and made the heart background using distress oxide ink and a heart stencil from Carta Bella. The sentiment and hearts are from a TCP Studio stamp set which I embossed onto the card. A Magnolia border die and some pearls helped finishing off the card.

Copics used: (hair) E70, E74, E77, (skin) E00, E02, E04, E13, E15, (dark pink) RV14, R35, R39, R89, (pink) RV00, R81, R83, R85 + white gel pen

Magical dragons

There is a 30 day colouring challenge going on, hosted by Kathy of The Daily Marker. At the start of this challenge I saw loads of cute dragons and decided that of course I needed them, too! They seemed a bit hard to get a hold of, so I quickly just gave up and figured it could wait. A few days later they appeared in the post, as an “early birthday present”. Lucky me! I’m definitely keeping this guy, he understands me so well! haha.

I coloured the My Favorite Things dragons up with Copics and then cut them out by hand. Then I decided that for the first time ever I was going to make a proper stamped card! Yikes! I used two border stamps by Neat and Tangled (aren’t they great?!), and a cloud stamp by Panduro, and possibly for the first time ever used several ink pads for stamping on one project! About time, right?! Then I put it all on a Maja Design for the card base. The sentiment is also by MFT. It was a lot of fun to do, but I need more practice for sure. But hey, got to start somewhere!

Copics used: (purple dragon) V09, V12, V15, V17, Y13, Y19, E97, YG01, YG13, YG67, (green dragon) YR04, YR07, Y13, Y19, YG01, YG13, YG67, RV00, RV02, RV04

Thankful heart, CAS

This is one of my favourite Tiddly Inks images. I love the close-up, framed style of it. The last time I used this image on a card, I had loads of layers, so I wanted this one to be different. CAS it is!

The name of the stamp is Thankful Heart and you can find it here. I’ve coloured it up with copics. The papers is by Paper Cellar, the bottom sentiment by Stempelglede and the black buttons are candi by Craftwork Cards.

Here is another photo of the card; a close-up of the coloured image.

Copics used: (sky) B34, C1, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (jar) B000, B00, B02, (flowers) R22, R24, R59, Y04, Y19, Y38, YG63, YG67, (dress) BG53, BG57, BG78

Goth Ellie – be yourself

Clean and simple cards are so much fun! I think I am making like two CAS for every layered one atm. Today I am showing one I made for the Paper Nest Dolls, using the stamp Goth Ellie.

I used some candi in the top right corner, and kept them white for a change. I printed a sentiment right onto the card base and then used paper from Paper Cellar. Lastly I cut out the stamp by hand, put her upper body on foam tape to make her stand off the card a little, while keeping her feet firmly on the ground at the bottom where I drew on some shadow.

Here is a close-up of the colouring.

Copics used: (hair) BV23, BV25, BV29, (purples) V01, V06, V09, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (turquoise) G40, BG49, BG53, BG57, (greys) W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, W9
