Happy {Christmas Foxy!} hello!

Hello again!

It's been a few days since my last post- but I'm still here! Coloring behind the scenes and just squeezing in time to put everything together. Things are about to get much crazier as the holidays creep closer too!

Anyway, while doing some blog reading, I came across the new challenge for Paper Smooches!

And the November challenge is GOLD! (I'm not usually a fan of gold.. but it's slowly growing on me, especially with all the fun embellishments and sparkly papers it's hard to resist!)

I pulled out this sweet Chilly Chums set that I surprisingly haven't inked up yet (til now!) and just had to use the lil chummy fox first...

Happy (foxy) hello

I stamped him on kraft card stock and my original plan was to just use copics, but when I used a white colored pencil for his face and tail, I found that I really liked the texture so I added a layer of colored pencil on top of his body & head- makes him look fuzzy and soft! I added gold with the diecut happy from the Birthday Words die set along with the gold glittered tag & sequins.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy almost Friday!

Oh Baby!

It's a new challenge day at Tiddly Inks! This week's challenge is BABY INKS!

This one was extra fun for me (well they all are but...) especially since I have a little on myself! My baby girl is 7 months old today! Time flies!

I decided to make a cute tag that I could use in her scrapbook (once I can actually get to it!) I used this adorable Baby Girl image...

Baby girl

I colored her some extra hair since my daughter has a ton! :)

There's also *NEW* images just released TODAY!!  I haven't gotten to all of them yet, but did manage to make a card with Angelic Wishes! She's just too cute and pretty so I kept my card very simple...

You can find the rest of the new releases here:

Be sure to check out the rest of the design team's creations and join in the BABY INKS challenge!

I'm hoping to be back soon with some of the new images on cards- I have about half of them colored!

Happy Tuesday!

Brewing Happy Birthday Wishes!

Hello again!

A friend of mine recently ordered a card for her daughter's upcoming birthday and requested a coffee themed one after seeing some of my posts from the last Coffee Lovers blog hop not too long ago.  Of course I jumped on the opportunity because coffee cards are just SO much FUN!!

So this card... could win an award for most products used on a single card- LOL!

I love piecing together different stamp sets to create my own sentiment and this one was definitely a fun one! How many different stamp companies can you spot?...

Brewing Happy Wishes

FIVE... yes 4 different stamp sets and a die cut went into making this card! The "brewing" is from Simon Says Stamps What's Brewing, the "happy" diecut is from Winnie & Walter, the mug is from Lawn Fawn's Love You a Latte, the heart in the mug as well as the "birthday" is from Mama Elephant's Three Amigos, and finally the "wishes" is from Hero Arts Banners and Messages!


I'm also entering this card in the newest challenge over at CAS(E) this Sketch! 

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Weekend!

A Tiddly Inks catch up!

Hello & Happy Friday!

Took an unexpected break from the blog (and crafting really...) for a few days- perhaps just recovering from all the Halloween hoopla! We definitely had a tons of fun celebrating my baby girl's first Halloween and collecting lots of candy of course! (You *may* have seen a pic I posted on Instagram of my family all in costume!)

Onto to my card for today, actually 2 because it looks like I forgot to share my card from a few weeks ago on here! OOPS!... I couldn't get enough of these sweet Mini & Many Friends from Tiddly Inks when I colored them during the 30 Day Coloring challenge!

I Miss You

What She Said...

I paired them both with some scraps of patterned paper in my stash and sentiments from Mama Elephant's Three Amigos set.

Be sure to check out more cute cards from the rest of the design team on the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog and come back again next Tuesday for the next challenge!

Halloween Witches

Sneaking in another Halloween card before Saturday!

I'm joining in on the October Farm Fresh challenge on the TGF blog: Black, Orange & Purple! I finally got my hands on this *sweet* Hallo Witch from The Greeting Farm. (I've had my eyes on her every Halloween since she was released! LOL)

Halloween Witches

Again, I colored her up a few days ago since participating in Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge! I've been a bit behind the past few days but hoping to catch up with some new stamps that just arrived- Woohoo!

I'm also joining in on the fun at Simon Says Stamp for their Anything Goes Challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!

Too Cute to SPOOK!

Happy Tuesday! & it's the LAST Tuesday of October! Can you believe how fast the year is flying by?!? (I certainly can't!)

Tuesday means it's time for a new challenge over at Tiddly Inks! & since Halloween is on Saturday... the challenge is SPOOKY DOOKY!

While I totally love Halloween... I'm not all about the scary stuff. (I'm a wimp! LOL) So on to my challenge card...

Too Cute to Spook

I used this cute Peekaboo Bugg and did some serious distress ink layering for the background. I masked a circle to create a moon and layered some night sky colors (broken china, seedless preserves, dusty concord) and swirled in a bit of clear wink of stella for a bit of a shimmer!

Hope to see you play along with us at Tiddly Inks! Check out all the deets on the Challenge blog!
