Flamingo love

I was so inspired by the black and white theme at La La Land Crafts this week that I made another two! Technically I made this one first as I got a bit carried away, but I did them both the same day and had a lot of fun doing them.  This one has no stamps at all and no colouring. That doesn’t happen very often!

All the LLLC products will be listed at the bottom of this post.

Here you can see the pearls moved over to another side. It was quite fun making the shaker card. I think I’m getting a hang of them now!

Here is the sentiment with some of the pearls scattered in the shaker bit. I love how versatile the happy birthday sentiment die is and that I can use it for loads of different combinations. I printed out the word Anniversary to go with it for this card. If you don’t have it already, I’d say just get it. It’s perfect!

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


Another garden wedding

I couldn’t help myself when I got these new images. I simply had to make more than one card! I decided to keep the green through this one as well as the image, by Tiddly Inks, is called Garden Wedding after all.

I’ve used Noor Design and Memory Box dies. The lace, ribbon and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The paper is by Pion. I’ve made the sentiment myself and coloured it all in with copics. You can find the list of colours below the image.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, (hair – her) E25, E27, E29, E31, (hair – him) E41, E43, E44, E47, (clothes) W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, W9, (grass) YG03, YG63, YG67, (roses) R24, R29, R89.



Here it is: my final post for the Tiddly Inks Design Team. The post is a week late because I have spent the entire start of the year with a nasty cold that seems to finally loosen its grip on me! Anyway, my tiddly term is up, unfortunately. I have absolutely loved working with this images and my pile of favourites has grown a whole lot bigger! One thing is definitely not over, though, and that is my love for colouring up these images, so you most certainly haven’t seen the last of my tiddly makes! As it is a new year, we are not doing a normal themed challenge, however there is a challenge! See the title of my post? You got it! Tag your creation in your blog or on Facebook, Instagram etc with #tiddlyspiration for your chance to win a fab prize! It’s so easy! See the challenge blog for more details.

My card for this post is one I recently made for a friend who got married right before new years. Congratulations, hun! I wish you both all the best!

Of course it also had to have a box to go with and Love You Mostest Couple is the best stamp as it didn’t only have the most adorable bride and groom, but it also has a lovely floral heart which was perfect for my box. I coloured it all in with copics and had a lot of fun (read struggled..) with the hair!

GoKreate dies were used for the shape of the card and I used Noor Design dies for the butterflies and the box is also from there. The lace and pearls are from Live and Love Crafts whereas the ribbon was bought at Range in the UK and doesn’t seem to have a brand name on it.. How odd. Anyway, I used loads of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, distressed all the edges and added some frantage!
