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!



Angelica and hearts

As it is the start of December we have another Progressive Challenge for you at Mi Ran’s Facebook group. Buy the first image this month, play along, and get next month’s image given to you! Fab deal, right? This month we are playing with Angelica. If you’d like to just purchase her, then she will be available in the Art by Mi Ran shop in January.

I coloured mine in with copics and used various papers and embellishments from Lili of the Valley (papers), Wild Orchid Crafts (flowers), Craftwork Cards and Martha Stewart.


Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R20, (hair) E31, E34, E37, (outfit) B0000, B000, B00, (hearts) RV00, R81, R83, R85.

Don’t be square

It is time for the first challenge where I am on the Tiddly Inks DT and the theme is don’t be square.

I have used the Tiddly Inks image Grow a Little Love. She is so adorable! I’ve used copics to colour it in and decided on a pink card this time. The shaped template is a die by Go Kreate and the lace is from Live and Love Crafts, as are the berry looking flowers. The rest of the flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts whereas the straws are from a local shop. The rest of the dies and punches I’ve used are by Noor Design, Spellbinders and Martha Steward. A dash of frantage around the image and distress ink around the edges of the card, pearls as the butterflies’ bodies as well as drawn on stitches were added as extra touches.


Peaches and greens

Aren’t weddings wonderful? I think so. So here is a wedding card!

This one is made with Pion Papers and an image by Wild Rose Studio, a pre-coloured one. I have made butterflies and leaves with Martha Stewart punchers. The ribbon and big pearls are from The Hobby House and the smallers ones for the body of the butterflies are purchased at Bikuben. Additionally I have (of course) used flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts.


Wedding in Paris

It’s wedding season, isn’t it? Here is the first of about a handful of cards I have made. I stumbled upon some lovely pre-coloured images by Wild Rose Studio. Aren’t they lovely?!

The paper I used is a lovely rose frame by Pion Design. The leaves and butterflies are made from a Martha Stewart puncher. I used pearls to give the butterflies bodies and also to decorate the top corners of the card and to frame the image. The ribbon is from one of the Christmas flowers from last year, I believe, and all the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
