The Sweetest new release at Tiddly Inks

large tiddlyinks badgeI have the cutest set of new releases ever from Tiddly Inks featuring both rubber and digital stamps, but I have to warn you ahead of time that this post is going to be picture heavy!!!  Christy got her ink on this month, so this release is HUGE!  And the truth is that once I started colouring these cuties, I couldn’t stop. Oh, and once I had them coloured, I couldn’t stop adding them to cards.

Now, I am not going to bore you with details about each of them, but I promise to add more about each in the upcoming month for challenges and Friday features, so make sure you pop back!  In the meantime, enjoy this awesome new release, and make sure you pop on over to the Tiddly Inks blog to see what the other ladies on the DT created with these cuties!

Celebrating with Tiddly Inks


Well, my borthday is next week, so I thought I would celebrate a bit with Tiddly Inks!  It’s FabFF-closeup Friday, so the DT has some inspirational cards simply to get you inspired to craft!  No challenges, no pressure – just crafting fun!  And that is a perfect way to celebrate my birthday.

This little beauty is called Willow the Birthday Fairy, but what I love about her is that she would make an awesome Christmas fairy too!  Colour her up with some traditional Christmas colours and you can take her into different seasons – just like a good pair of shoes! I think my favourite part of her are the wings – just a bit of BG11 and C1 topped off with a bit of Stickles.  So easy, and lots of fun dimension.

Well, here’s to getting crafty this weekend  Don’t forget to pop by the Tiddly Inks blog to see all the great cards the DT cooked up for today!  Thanks for stopping by!



Make Your Own Sunshine!

Recently, DCWV sent me a new stack called Blossom Couture available now at Hobby Lobby.  If you have ever had a chance to stop by my blog, you will know that I use a lot of bold and bright colours when I am crafting.  But this new soft, crisp, clean stack has me wanting to do away with the pinks and purples and embrace cream, teal, green, grey and white full time!  Let me tell you – this stack is a beauty!


For this layout, featuring my youngest daughter with her toothy grin (and complete with one of those new walker head bruises),  I decided to showcase one of the pretty journaling tags available in the stack as a title for the layout.  I really love these tags for both the graphics and the well placed embossing that takes each of them from flat to fabulous!

On top of all the embossing, you will also find all sorts of great patterns, blossoms, and a touch of foiling on elements like a great page filled with alphas. And this stack, with its neutral colours, is perfectly complimented with some of DCWV’s specialty material stacks like the Printed Corrugated cardstock.


Finally, I wanted to share with you one of my favourite parts of this new stack – a page that includes a couple of beautiful cards that you can cut out, fold and use just as they are!


It’s hard for me to give away anything but a homemade cards now, but I have to admit that sometimes I find myself pulling one together at the last minute.  This is a great combination of quick and homemade.  While the designs are pretty enough on their own, you can also embellish them a bit with products like DCWV adhesive pearls  or even a bit of ribbon and you are set to go.  Add one of the cute tags from the same page on the inside of the card, and no one will know that it took you less than 5 minutes to pull it together.

Well, that’s it for me today!  I am off to finish another layout that I started with this stack.  Thanks for stopping by today!

When you wish upon a star…


Star-fairy-closeupOne of the really fun parts of being on a design team for a stamp company is having access to the newest designs by the artist or artists. But sometimes it is great to look back to stamps designs from the past and play with those ones too!  After all, there is nothing better than that stamp standbys – the ones you love coming back to over and over again!  That’s why I always love Throwback Thursdays at Tiddly Inks! 

For today’s Throwback inspiration, I decided to use one of the darling fairies from the Buggs Mega Pack. All the bold stars on her dress and hat inspired me to use bright and bold colours (so I turned to Doodlebug paper of course). The stars also inspired the handwritten sentiment – and I think this little cutie makes the cutest fairy godmother ever!  She can grant my wishes any day!

Well, I hope this fun stamp and card brought a little smile to your day! Thanks for stopping by and have a great Thursday!
