G ood morning crafty peeps! I am so excited to be part of the Faber Castell/May Arts hop that has been going on all week! Designers from both teams have been showing off all sorts of fun projects, and I get to round out the ladies today. If you haven’t been over to see what Jennifer and Tracy have to share, make sure you take the opportunity to go over and leave some love! And while your at it, pop on over to the May Arts blog to let us know what you think – it’s worth your time! Both companies have chipped in for some serious goodies – $50 prize pack of FC goodies and 3 rolls of May Arts ribbon!
Okay, so let’s talk a little bit about this project. I recently got my hands on some the 7/8″ Embroidery/Satin Ribbon from May Arts (I was using white), and I was curious to see if the texture in the ribbon would play nicely with my Gelatos from Faber Castell. Did they ever! I simply rubbed 2 of my Mix and Match Gelatos from the blue collection across my ribbon and then added some water, rubbing the colour into the ribbon with my finger. After it dried, I had this beautiful light blue colour over my ribbon. I then tried to play up the pattern in the ribbon a little bit more, this time working with a Double Scoop Gelato in Bubblegum to just add a bit of colour along the pattern. What a fun way to customize some ribbon for any project!
Alright, so get yourself on over to the other blogs so you don;t miss out on your chance to win! Thanks for stopping by!
It’s Fab Friday time at Tiddly Inks, and it is always one of my favourite days because the sky is the limit in terms of choice! The design team get’s to pick any stamp and just have some colouring fun! I decided to show off one of our new releases called Dandy as Candy – a perfect stamp for that cute gal in your life!
One of the things that I try to do before I start colouring an image is have some paper in mind. It helps me pick colours, and makes it easy to coordinate and pull the card together. When I found this Doodlebug paper in my stash, I knew I had a winner – jelly beans, I tell you!!! Perfect! Together with some cute ribbon from May Arts, I hope the recipient thinks this card is cute enough to eat! ;)
If you are in need of some sunshine and smiles, make sure you head on over to the Tiddly Inks blog for all sorts of inspiration from the design team! Trust me, there is no way you will be able to leave the blog without a smile on your face!

I am usually a fan of winter, but I have to admit that I am ready for spring this year. I blame Mother Nature entirely – she has teased me with great temperatures over the last week, and the convenience of not having to dress in triple layers from head to toe before leaving the house is not lost on me. However, winter has returned with a vengeance, so I will have to settle for a bit of spring on paper!
It’s challenge time over at the Tiddly Inks blog today, and we have a fun one planned – TINGO! The goal is to choose any row from the Tingo board, making sure to run through the middle and include a Tiddly Inks stamp.
For mycard, I decided to use one of Christy’s new images called Wryn – Berry Sweet together with flowers and buttons. Now I know that there aren’t any actual buttons on the card itself, but I used that component as an inspiration for the sentiment. That’s what I love about TINGO- there are some parameters to play with, but there is still room for all sorts of creativity. Maybe you have button-patterned paper, or maybe the flowers are in the image. Or maybe you will be like some of the DT and try to use all of the elements from the board. In any case, we hope it is an inspiration to get crafty!
So, go check out the Tiddly Inks blog for more fun ideas, and have an awesome Tuesday! Thanks for stopping by!
Good morning crafty friends! It’s Fabulous Friday time over on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog, so I thought I would share a bit of inspiration here at SCS as well!
This cute stamp (available in clear as well) is called Let Us Eat Cake, and she is darling. Perfect for young adults and grown ups alike, I think this stamp is pretty and cute without being “cutsie” (not that I think there is anything wrong with cutise as you may have already noticed). I coloured her up with Copics, focusing on matching them to some Doodlebug paper. I love the contrast of her black hair with all the bright colours – I am always a bit nervous to try curly black hair, but I think it was worth it for this one!The ribbons are from May Arts – a grosgrain/satin that is really fun, and my favourite eyelet.
Make sure you stop by the Tiddly Inks blog for more inspiration by the design team, and to check out all the new stamps (digi and clear) if you haven’t had a chance to do so yet!
Well, that’s it for me today! I hope you can find some time this weekend to do something you enjoy – crafting or otherwise! Thanks for stopping by!
