Tuesday Challenge Time with Tiddly Inks


Good morning everyone!  It’s Tuesday, and that means it challenge time at Tiddly Inks (well, actually, it’s every second Tuesday ;))!  The theme for this challenge is “Celebrate”, so there are lots of ways you can go with this one – birthdays, new babies, new jobs, graduation… there are so many things to celebrate!

Flower-Girl-1-closeupI decided to work with a stamp called Danni and Danny.  I love this little pair of cuties. I coloured up the image with Copics, and actually decided to keep her dress white (which is always a bit of a risk for me because I tend to overdo the grey colours).  It’s hard to tell from the photos, but I also topped up the edges with Stickles for a bit of sparkle.  I think this would make a super cute wedding card or thank-you card for a little flower girl, but I think this would make a darling baptism, communion or confirmation card too!

So, I hope you will consider joining us!  You have two weeks to do some colouring and then link up over on the challenge blog!  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

She’s got wings and she knows how to use them!


Good morning everyone!  It’s Saturday, and here at SCS, that usually means I get to share some inspiration for the weekly challenge at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!!

This week our hostess is Sheri and her challenge is FLOWERS!! So create a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp that features flowers in some way! So in the image itself, in the patterned paper, add flower diecuts or flower embellishments!! Woohoo! We love to see flowers!!

IMG_0361For this little card, I decided to draw in my flowers!  I love this cute stamp from KKS’s “Pretty Little PIxies” set.  There is actually a really cute single flower stamp that goes with this cutie, but I thought it would be fun to make it look like she was growing a whole garden, complete with a sentiment.  She’s a pixie after all – and they are magical little beings, aren’t they?

We are ALSO sponsoring the challenge over on the Kit and Clowder online colouring community!!! Their challenge is WINGS so if you create a card featuring FLOWERS AND WINGS, you can enter it into BOTH challenges for DOUBLE the chances to WIN!!! How awesome is that?  So, go check out the wonderful creations by our Krafty Girls and special Krafty Guests featuring this week’s challenge and head over to the Kit and Clowder online clolouring community for their challenge!!

Love is in the Air


Hello crafty friends!  It’s Saturday, and that means it is challenge time for Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps. This week our hostess is TRACY and her challenge is called LOVE IS IN THE AIR (a great challenge for this time of the year)!

Love-is-in-the-air-closeupAlthough I have a tonne of adorable girly stamps that would be perfect for this challenge, I decided to try something without red or pink as a focus (I know, it is shocking)!  I pulled out ones of the cute little guys from the “Great Adventures” set, and tried to work with some “non-traditional” love colours!  I think these two little friends are picture-perfect “love” – the kind that is comfortable and warm and fun.  The sentiment is hand lettered, but there are all sorts of great sentiments in this set that would work for this challenge too!

So, I hope you’ll consider creating a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a Kraftin’ Kimmie stamp with a love theme!  We hope you can play along for your chance to WIN some Kraftin’ Kimmie stamps!

In the meantime, have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!


Tag – You’re it!

It’s another Tuesday and that means it’s time for a new challenge at Tiddly Inks!!  

Tag-frontThis week’s challenge is all about TAGS!  I am not usually a tag kind of gal, so I decided to use the idea of tags on a card. Now, that is not to say that you can’t create a tag on it’s own for this challenge – in fact, you should see some of the beauties from the deign team!  Just have fun with it, and do what works for you.

On this card, I used a stamp from the set called “Cat Fever“.  I love this cutie – and she is a breeze to colour up (she’s mostly hair! ;)).  The patterned paper is all Doodlebug, with a few mini pearls here and there for some texture.  

I hope you’ll consider joining us for the challenge.  Remember, new projects only, and don’t forget to link up on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
