Sweet Life

I'm on the LDRS Creative blog today sharing my latest card featuring the All Dressed Up stamp line, Love the Weekend...

Sweet Life

After coloring my image I die cut it using the Fancy Squares & Little Things die set, I squared off the bottom, making it a 4 1/4" card. I used some coordinating patterned papers and also die cut the "buttons" from the same die set. The sentiment is from Friendly Greetings. I finished it off with some sparkle of sequins and Spectrum Noir sparkle on her skirt.

Thanks to a comment on Facebook, I'm also joining in on the All Dressed Up- Anything Goes Challenge!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello! Happy ❤️ Day!!

Quick post today to share this card I made for my kiddos to give their Dada for Valentine's Day!

Looove You

I thought this ADORABLE image from C.C. designs was a perfect match for my son & daughter! Paired it with a sentiment from Mama Elephant's Origami stamp set since my kids looove to be silly and say love it all different ways!

I created my card, using the CASe This Sketch for challenge 208!

That's all for today- hope you have wonderful Valentine's Day!

Stuck with YOU!

TIDDLY INKS is back after a holiday break to kick off the new year with a *NEW* challenge...


Stuck with you

If you didn't already know I'm a little obsessed with cacti &  succulents... so I thought it would be cute to transform Wryn's heart plant into a succulent with some teeny spikes!  Using coordinating patterned papers, I stamped a cactus (from My Favorite Things) in Versamark ink & heat embossed using clear powder, the sentiment is also from the same MFT set. I tied on some twine before adding my colored image.

dress: RV66, RV69, C3
shoes: C1, C3, C5

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you join us for this new challenge! AND we've made some changes for the challenge- instead of a new challenge every 2 weeks, challenges will now run a month long! Which means MORE time to play along!!

Hedgehugs With You


I've finally had the itch to get crafty again, I mean there is so much cute stuff calling my name on my desk!

I'm also joining the latest MFT card sketch challenge #318

I decided that these cute hedgies were shouting at me the loudest...

Hedgehugs with you

Using the mushrooms from the hedgehog set as well as from You Gnome Me, I stamped them randomly in Versamark ink and colored them with copics for a soft background. I masked the 2 hedgies nose to nose and fussy cut them out. I created my sentiment using words from Fall Friends, it originally says 'I Love Hanging Out with you', I just switched the 'hanging out' with the word 'Hedgehugs!'  I finished putting my card together with washi tape on the edge and some faux white stitching.

Mushrooms: R14, R17, R24, R27, R29, R35, R37, R43, R46, R59
Hedgies: E000, E00, E21, E50, E51, E53, E70, E74, E77, E70, R01, R20
Scarves: R17, R37, R46, R81, R83, R85, B23, B24, B26, G14, G17, YG25

Year of the Rooster!

Happy Chinese New Year!  2017 is the Year of the Rooster- my year!

It wouldn't be new years without some handmade lucky envelopes for my kids, niece's & nephew!

I pulled out my favorite animal set to make these, Lunar Animals & Lunar Extras from Mama Elephant!

Year of the Rooster

I originally intended for them to be much simplier, but it just wouldn't come together for me- so I created this sweet scene!

I used a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Tag die and stamped the flower branch & rooster, colored with copics. I made the mini envelope using my envelope punch board and layered red glitter paper under the tag. It was still missing *something*... I die cut the flag (basic stitched flag) and stamped & gold embossed the, "Gong Hay Fat Choy" sentiment too look like a traditional New Years banner hanging from the tree branch! I finished them off with another rooster on the back mounted with foam tape so the flap of the envelope tucks under it.

Rooster: E23, E25, E27, B37, Y35, R37, R46
branches: E53, E55, E57, RV00, RV02, RV06, YG61, YG63, YG67

Wishing you all a Prosperous & Happy New Year!

It is absolutely the cutest and I had so much fun making this card.


Sorry to cut out the details, hope to update as soon my computer is back up and running!

Sweet Day

Happy New Year!

I'm finally jumping back onto the card making train, and kicking off the new year (2 weeks later...)  with a new card over on the LDRS Creative blog today!

Sweet Strawberry Fields

Now that Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I thought this adorable Strawberry Fields stamp would be a sweet start!

After coloring with copics, I fussy cut the image. Layered it on top of Fancy Squares & Little Things and Basic Stitched Flag dies, added a red heart doily, and adhered it all on a kraft cardstock piece trimmed slightly smaller than my cardbase and embossed with the Picnic Quilt embossing folder. Finished it off by stamping part of one sentiment from the Friendly Greetings set.

mice: C1, C3, C5, R20
strawberries: R32, R35, R46, R89, Y02, Y06, YG03, YG17, YG67, YR04
