Need Coffee??

Hello there!!

Long time no post! I'm steadily starting to get my card makin' mojo back.. it got a little kick start today with the start of the latest Coffee Lovers blog hop!



I couldn't resist the cuteness of this new coffee girl from The Greeting Farm- I knew she would be perfect for this hop!

Need Coffee?

Feels good to make a card again!

 I've gotten so hooked (literally!) on crocheting amigurumi critters that it's taken over! It's a post all on its own- but if you're interested, I post more regularly on Instagram @LysaQR!

Thanks for stopping by & happy hopping!

Thanks for all you do!

As promised I'm back to share the second card I made for my niece's teacher for the end of the year!

My niece is moving up to middle school next year (I can't believe it!)- I made her teacher a simple yet pretty card using this Hero Arts Large Flower background (cling) stamp!

Thanks teacher
I stamped the flower image in white ink of kraft card stock and colored with Copic markers- I love the muted tones the kraft paper soesntoncopics, even when using the bright colors! I diecut  a banner flag and added the thanks diecut (Mama Elephant) to keep the card simple, I didn't want too much to take away from the stamped image.  I finished the card with faux stitching and a couple of clear sequins!

I've finally gotten the chance to clean off my craft desk so here's hoping for more cards in the near future!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Super teacher

Hello!

Long time no post!! This week is the last week of school for 2 of my nieces, and my sister asked me to make some cards for their teachers.

For my younger *almost 3rd grader* niece, their class has had a superhero theme so I knew I wanted to use the You're Super stamp set from My Favorite Things!


Super teacher

I created the layout to look like a page out of a comic book using elements from the same stamp set, the buildings were made using a Paper Smooches diecut. Colored the Supergirl using Copics coordinating with the patterned papers, finished it all with some Spectrum Moir sparkle here and there and my card is done!

More on the second teacher card I made in the next post!

Thanks for Picking Me!

Happy May!

A new month means a new challenge at Tiddly Inks! And this month we're BLOOMING with flowers!

I 'picked' this sweet Poppy Wryn and gave her a rainbow colored poppy dress!

Picking Me

I'm still in a bit of a card making funk... I recently started getting into crocheting cute amigurumi critters and totally got hooked! (more on that in a different post!) - but hoping to get back into it soon- coloring this rainbow of flowers definitely helped & I have a few un-inked stamps calling my name!

Be sure to head over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog for all the details on the BLOOMING BEAUTIFUL challenge!

Blooming Great Day!

Happy Easter!!

I'm on the LDRS Creative blog today sharing my card using these adorable Garden Bunny stamp & die set along with the new circle dies from Creative Basics!

Blooming great day

After coloring my image with copics, I die cut the image and coordinating patterned papers from the Soft Blush & Eleganza paper packs using the circle dies. I adhered them to my card base that I had embossed using the Picnic Quilt embossing folder. Finished off my card with washi tape, some wood veneer embellishments, sequins & twine!

Hope you had a BLOOMING great day!

Road trippin'

Oops, Almost forgot to post this! (it's been a bit of a hectic week!)

Tiddly Inks is back with a new monthly challenge, ROAD TRIP!

I used this super fun image of Wryn Scooting by for my card, she comes in some different variations too- the other give her a furry sidekick riding along!

Life's adventures

Added some cute coordinating patterned papers & a doily to pull it all together. (My sentiment is from Hero Arts.)

Now I want to go on road trip!

Hope to see you join the fun!

Time for Coffee!

Hello!

I'm on the LDRS Creative blog today sharing a card I made using the newest release from CHA!

...and it falls along with the Spring Coffee Lovers blog hop!!



Here is Time for a Coffee Break...

Time for coffee


I colored with Copic Markers and layered my image with Creative Basics dies:

- Basic Pierced Ovals

- Basic Stitched Flags

- Fancy Rectangles & Layers

I also embossed the patterned paper on my card base using a Majestic embossing folder, and as usual embellished my card with coordinating twine & sequins!

Hope you take the time to enjoy a coffee break!
