Black Cat Challenge

Halloween week continues here at SCS, and today, I have a cute little card to share with you!



This little cute duo is a new stamp from Tiddy Inks called Couple of Fall Cuties. I thought it would be the prefect image to use for this week’s challenge which is called “Black Cat”  If you haven;t been over to the Tiddly Inks blog today, you really need to check out all the great creations by the design team for this challenge, especially if “cute Halloween” is your “thing” (it is definitely mine).



I coloured up these cuties with Copics, and while my kitty did turn out more grey than black, let’s just say that she looks good for her age!  The paper is from Doodlebug, and that great ribbon is from May Arts.  Oh, and as has become my tradition, the sentiment was hand lettered.

I hope you will consider joining us for the challenge!  While Black Cat would probably work for a lot of Halloween projects, there are so many cute cat images over in the store that would work for any theme!  We always love seeing you work so link up!

Thanks for stopping by!



We HAIR you did something nice…

10444009_10152447028921014_6995170450824411293_nHappy hump day!!  It’s Wednesday, so it’s time for another Wonderful Wednesday challenge at Kraftin’ Kimmie stamps!  As always….it’s ANYTHING GOES, so find your favourite Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps and get kreating!

Yesterday, my girls received a couple of beautiful princess dress-up hand-me-downs from a colleague, so I decided it would be fun to make some themed thank-you cards.  So my daughters and I got out our Once Upon a Time 3 and Once Upon a Time 4 sets (the dresses we Rapunzel and Cinderella themed), and we got krafty!


For this card, I used some fun papers from American Crafts, and some pretty velvet and crochet ribbon from May Arts.

WW-June-11-closeupI coloured up Rapunzel with Copics, using some BVs for the purple on the dress (BV000, BV02, BV04) and the R81/R83/R85 for the pink. I also used my Sakura markers for the sentiment.  I seem to be in a bit of “hand lettering” kick right now – can you tell?

Okay, now back to the challenge – your submission must use at least one Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp but can be any theme, any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item….you name it!! It must be a NEW creation and you can enter on this post until June 17th!! At the end of the month, one winner will be chosen from all the submissions that month and will receive a Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps prize pack!!! So if there are four Wednesdays, you have FOUR chances to WIN!! What do you think…..wanna WIN?? Let’s see your krafty stuff!!

Don’t forget to take a look at all the beautiful inspiration from the Krafty Girls for today’s challenge!  Thanks for stopping by!


A Pastel Challenge

You would think that with two little gals in my house, I would be all about pastel colours!  But the truth of the matter is that when I colour images, I tend to gravitate
towards the bright and bold!  So it is pretty safe to say that the newest challenge at Tiddly Inks (Pastels) was, well, a bit of a challenge for me! ;)


Pastel-closeupI decided to work with this cute image called Wryn -Sunny Day.  It is a newer release at the Tiddly Inks store, but I hadn’t yet had the chance to colour her up!  I worked with my R81/R83/R85/R89 combination for herflower head piece, and my trust BG11/BG13/BG15/BG18 combination for her dress.  I actually usually colour up an image to match some paper I have in mind for the card base, but this time, coloured first!  I think the cute Kaisercraft paper if a great fit, and probably adds that extra “pastel” feel to the card!

I hope you’ll consider joining us for this fun challenge! You have two weeks to create a little something new featuring a Tiddly Inks design and a pastel-theme of some sort!  We always love to see you work, and you could win $6.00 worth of Tiddly Ink images!

Well, that’s it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by!


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!
