May Flowers challenge

Swing-fullIt’s challenge day over at Tiddly Inks, and this time we thought we would go with some flowery goodness.  We all love those flowers don’t we?!!  So perfect for so many occasions too, so  the next challenge is… May Flowers!
 
Swing-closeupGrab your favourite Tiddly Inks stamp or digital image and think along the lines of..
Images/stamps with flowers, making your own flowers,
flower themed papers/ embellies!
(**remember…We love to see any new creation, a card, 3D project, journal page etc
but you must use a Tiddly Inks stamp or image to be eligible for the prize**)
I decided to work with –Wryn Swinging By – a newer release by Christ.  A lot of my cards need to go in the mail, so I like to keep things flat. So while I love making handmade flowers, most of my cards will not include them!  But I do love to sneak the flowers in there, especially through the use of patterned paper.  It’s an easy way to make so many different cards and images fit the theme!  I pulled out my Doodlebug paper for this one, but what are your favourite floral papers?
We sure would love to see you join in on the challenge, and don’t forget to pop on over to the blog to see the amazing inspiration by all of the DT members!
Thanks for stopping by!

Let’s get this party started!

Birthday-cake-full

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!

Birthday-cake-closeupThis 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!

Black Cat Challenge

Halloween week continues here at SCS, and today, I have a cute little card to share with you!

Black-cat-front

 

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!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Mother’s Love

Elephant-full

Welcome back to day THREE of our DECEMBER Kraftin’ Kimmie Peeks!!! Today we are sharing a LOVELY new set by artist Thais Narciso! It is called…….A MOTHER’S LOVE!

Elephant-closeupToday, I decided to work with this darling image of a baby elephant cuddled up in the trunk of his momma or dad!  Wouldn’t this make the cutest Valentine’s card, or be perfect for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day?  I also used paper and twine from this month’s Krafty Kardmaking kit, featuring paper from Doodlebug’s Day to Day collection.  Although the colours are not really traditional, I think it makes a super colourful and happy card!
