Okay, I will admit it. I have a soft spot for anything crafty that happens to be cute (I know, I know, you are shocked right?) I always have. I remember as a teenager, I was a huge fan of Suzie’s Zoo. So, it is no surprise that this great digital stamp from Tiddly Inks is one of my favouites. Called Mini and Many friends, this digi is actually one of four that you get in the set – all just as cute as the others!
Although I had fun colouring up this digi with Copics, this is a great stamp for those of you who are not as comfortable with colouring. There are not very big sections that need colour, and I have a feeling that this would look great in black and white as well. Team it up with some cute paper (like Sugar Shoppe from Doodlebug), and you will have a cute card together in no time!
To make things even easier, we actually have a sketch up over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog for you to use! Team it up with a Mini digi or any other from Tiddly Inks and you are all set. Oh and remember – it doesn’t have to be a card! Make sur eyou check out all the great inspiration from the team over on the blog.
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!
