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!

LDRS Creative Hop

LDRS NEW MA _edited-1 2 (1)

Hi everyone!  Thanks for popping by today.  I am hopping with LDRS Creative and I wanted to share a bright and cheerful card I created with a couple of their great products!Hanson-1 I love to colour!!!  So when the darling new stamp called Abby Lynne arrive at my door, I knew that she would be friends with my Copics in no time at all! Abby Lynne’s hair was coloured up with one of my favourite Copic combinations – YR31, E13, E15, E17, E18.  It’s my “go to” combination for a really warm hair colour.


I decided to team her up with some Doodlebug paper that was die cut with one of the Basic Stitched Flags (designed by one of my crafty friends Rhea) – these flags are perfect for any size card!  I happen to create A2s most of the time, and this set of dies is perfect!  And if you look careflly, you’ll notice a cute stitching pattern around the edge of the die.  Hanson-3

I think it’s a fun combination of products that will definitely be part of a regular rotation here on my crafty table! LDRS Creative has great projects up all week for the hop, so make sure you pop on over to check out all the beautiful designs!

Playing favourites


Okay, it’s confession time again!  I really try hard not to play favourites with my Tiddly Inks stamps, but I really love it when Christy draws fairies!  My first Tiddly Inks stamp was Fairy Happy Day, and there are a huge number of other darling ones over at the Tiddly Inks store!  So, this week’s challenge called “Fairy Happy“, well, it makes me happy!


I decided to use Willow- The Greeting Fairy for this week’s card. I used my trusty Copics to add some colour, trying out a bit of a different technique for her skirt.  I was trying to create a bit of an iradecent appearance on her skirt by using two different colours – my BV 00/02/04 for the purple and the R81/83/85 for the pink, blending them together halfway.  It always feels a bit strange to me blending two different colours together in one shape, but I think it’s a fun effect.  And in the land of fairy fantasy, anything is possible!  So if it doesn’t quite look as intended, no harm done, right?

The variety of inspiration cards from the design team is really something to be seen, so it’s worth a trip over to the Tiddly Inks challenge blog!  We hope you’ll join us by creating a little something of your own – card, 3D project, treat bag…whatever.  Just make sure it has a Tiddly Inks stamp and makes you fairy happy!

Have a fairy great day!  Thanks for stopping by!
