Cards, cards, cards

Today I need to get caught up with some cards I created recently that I haven’t shared yet!  Usually I am a one-card one-post kind of gal, so this will be more bang for your buck!


All of these cards feature images from Tiddly Inks – my favourite digital stamp company.  Two of these cards were created with newer Wryn stamps – a great collection of three in one called Flower Girls.May-20-angledJuly-5-angled

Wryn is one of my favourite characters to colour, these these new versions are no exception.  There is a tonne of detail in the flowers, so if you aren’t a big “colourer” Christy has done most of the work for you here!


The other two cuties are more of my favourites from another great set of digis – Mini and Many Friends. I love the style of these characters, and I think that their little pet friends add a lot of charm.  They are also a nice simple shape, so you can keep them together as one image or easily fussy cut them for some dimension.

All of the images were teamed up with Doodlebug paper from a variety of collections. If you’ve checked out the blog, you will know that I am huge fan – especially when finding paper to coordinate with stamped images.  Bright and intense, the colours are always fun to work with and really make the stamped images pop.  Oh Doodlebug, how I love your style!

Okay, so if you want some bang for your buck – these are some great images to consider!  This isn’t the first time I have worked with them, and it certainly wont be the last!

It’s been awhile!

Well, I have a little confession to make.  My blog has been a little neglected lately!  The good news is that I have still been crafting up a storm – sometimes it just feels like one extra to take pictures and share them here.  But today, I am back with a fun card created with a brand new stamp from Tiddly Inks.  Christy has created a new character namned Molly, and she is a darling.  If you love colouring hair, this is a character for you!



July-19-cuThis particular stamps is Molly Swims.  I coloured her up with my favourite hair colour combination – YR31, E13, E15, E18.

I love the bright highlights and warm depth it creates at the same time.  I teamed her up with some paper from Pebbles – so I coloured the rest of the image to coordinate.  It’s a simple layout – I think it works for a fun summer birthday card, invitation, miss you or even a thank-you!

So, if you are feeling summer inspired, we do have another fun challenge up on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog – Summer Sun!!  So think sunshine, summer fun, summer images, summer feeling!! As always, any creation is game at TI, as long as you include a Tiddly Inks stamp or image.

So, you go get crafty and I will get on more posts for the blog!  Thanks for stopping by!


Go girl!

Good morning crafty friends! It’s Friiiiiday!  As many of you know, I happen to be a teacher in the hours that I am not crafting, and although I love that job immensely, I have to admit that the Friday countdowns do start in June.  So here’s to 4 more Fridays!

Over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog, it happens to be Fab Friday which means that I get to have fun with any Tiddly Ink stamp that I want, and any theme too!  Given that my students are right in the middle of rollerblading, I thought this great Wryn image called Wryn – Skater Girl would be perfect. I know, I know – rollerblades are not the same as roller skates, but work with me here, okay?!  I coloured her up with my Copics, experimenting a bit with some purples. I love my Copics a lot, but I seem to have a hard time with purples!  This time, I played a bit with the BV00, BV02, BV04 on Wryn’s pants and I was pretty happy!  Still looking for that true purple though – the one right in between red and blue!  Any suggestions from you Copic fans?

One Wryn was finished, I did team her up with some fun Doodlebug paper – a few pieces from this collection and a few from that!  That is one of the things that I love about A2 sized cards – you can use up a lot of odds and ends without it looking like you are piecing together odds and ends!  June-3-angled

Well, I am off to get this day going – the weather here is going to be great so maybe I’ll do a bit of outside crafting this weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!

Wryn – Skater Girl

Let your Tiddly Flow!

May 10 angled

Good morning crafty friends!  It’s Tiddly Tuesday here at SCS, and I am so excited to share today’s card.  Created for this week’s “Let Your Tiddly Flow” challenge at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog, this card features one of my new favourites from TI –  Poppy Wryn!  This is one of the newer images that Christy has designed, and if you love to colour flowers, this one is for you!

I teamed up Wryn with some fun paper from DCWV’s Watercolour stack.  I don’t tend to use large sections of black when I am crafting, but I sure love the contrast it creates in this one!  The poppies on Wryn’s dress were coloured with the R20,R22,R24 combination of Copics, and although they are more coral than pink, they seem to blend in with all the different pink tones in the paper.

So, that’s it for me today!  Consider joining us for this week’s challenge!  It’s a great time to do some colouring!
