It’s challenge time at the Tiddly Inks blog, and it’s a great one – Anything Goes! I always love these challenges because it is a great excuse to get some cards done for upcoming events, together with participating in a challenge! Two birds with one stone is always good for me!
For this card, I decided to team up the darling Cute as a Cupcake stamp with some paper from Doodlebug. I tend to shy away from using yellow to colour larger areas on a stamp mostly because it scares me (like colouring red)! ;) But I almost always love how it turns any card into something bright and cheerful, so I gave it a go! It probably helps that I just got some refills too (streaky yellow is not pretty).
Once the image was coloured, I topped off the card with some Chevron ribbon from My Arts (you know it is my favourite), and did a bit of doodling – some stitching and a sentiment. I am not sure if I have mentioned it before, but my Sakura pens are my favourite for doodling (Micron 01).
Okay, there is a ton of inspiration over at the Tiddly Inks challenge blog, as well as all the details on how and where to post. We always love seeing what you come up with, so make sure you join in and let us see your beautiful work!

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!
Last month, we celebrated Thanksgiving up here in Canada, but it is never a bad time to think about the things we are grateful for, and to give thanks for our many blessings! Today, the Tiddly Inks challenge is all about gratitude and joyfulness, and I couldn’t think of a better challenge to be a part of!
I love this theme! I decided to work with a digi called Minnie’s Christmas Lights mostly because this image makes me smile and think of my two little gals!
During the Christmas season, there are usually lots of times when someone goes out of their way to help, so I thought that a Christmas themed thank-you card would be in order. The image was coloured up with copics (Skin – E00, E11, E13; Hair – YR31, E11, E34; Dress: C1, C3) and the sentiment was hand lettered.
Speaking of hand lettered sentiments, I have a bit of a surprise for you today too! Often times readers comment on the hand written sentiments that I include on many of my cards. Today, I have teamed up with Christy at Tiddly Inks on a little giveaway. If you pop on over to the blog, you might just find a little digital file to download. In fact, I think you will find a couple – one from the uber talent Christy and a little one from me too! Oh, and later this week, I’ll share a little card that I used with the sentiment!
Have an awesome day and thanks for stopping by!
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!
