Tiddly Honeymooners

First Tuesday of the month means time for a new Tiddly Inks challenge! It’s been a while since I’ve made inspirational cards for the challenges now, but this one should mean that I’m back properly. Yey! The theme this month is anything goes, so I’ve made a wedding card using The Honeymooners.

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, N9, R35, R39, R89, G00, G21, G94, G99, E41, E42, E43, B000

Hero Arts and Lion King

For the longest time, (yes we are talking years here,) my sister wanted a Lion King themed card for her birthday. I was never really able to find what I wanted to use for it until a couple of months ago when I came across two perfect stamp sets from Hero Arts.Funnily enough, her birthday was right around the time of the premiere of the new Lion King film as well. My sister finally got her birthday card and I no longer have to be annoyed at that one little challenge I seemed unable to complete. Thank you, Hero Arts! Oh, and I had to promise to get her the film once it’s out on Blu Ray, too!

I used Distress Oxide Ink for the background and coloured up Make it Crafty alphabet letters using Copic.

LotV Christmas sled

Time for another preview of the new Lili of the Valley stamps coming later this week, on Thursday to be exact. I made this card to match the one I showed you yesterday, but this time I made a layered card. Love the new stamps!

Copics used: N0, N1, N3, R22, R24, R27, R59, G21, G82, G94, G99, E71, E74, E77, B000, BV20

Aurora Wings angel

Do you remember that I used Young Angel by Aurora Wings not so long ago? Well, I had another request for a card using that stamp and that is what I’m going to show you today. This card request was also quite specific with orange being the main colour and using loads of embellishments.

Orange.

When someone asks me to do orange I’m stuck. I’m not a particular fan of the colour and I very rarely use it. But there I was with orange as the main colour, staring at my markers, determined to find a combination I could be happy with.

And I did.

I am so happy with this orange combination. Like… so happy that I might use orange again… for fun!! Yes, that surprised me as well. Now I’m glad I accepted this challenge.

I’ve used papers by Pion Design and MFT Stamps as well as dies from Joy Craft, Precious Marieke, La-La Land Crafts and a puncher by Martha Stewart. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and The Hobby House.

Copics used: (skin) E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E31, E35, E37, E29, (green) YG13, YG17, YG67, (wings) N0, N1, N3, (orange) YR04, YR07, YR21, YR23

Book fairy

I was asked to make a confirmation card for a girly girl who likes books, cats and plays the piano. This stamp from Ching-Chou Kuik was the first one that came to mind and I think it’s pretty perfect. It’s a bit fiddly to colour up all the details, but I think it went alright.

For decorations I’ve used dies from La-La Land Crafts, Papirdesign and a Martha Steward puncher together with an old book page, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts as well as my favourite lace, a darker semi-transparent ribbon and a metal note charm hanging on twine. The papers are from Maja Design.
