Graduation Season

AJVD, Kecia Waters, graduation, 2018 graduation
Year after year, it seems like I get a lot of requests for graduation cards.  I tend to reach for my A Jillian Vance Design Congrats Grad stamp set to meet the requests.

If you'd like to read all about this card and the card pictured below, all you have to do is surf on over to today's A Jillian Vance Design blog post.

I had fun using my Adirondack Meadow dye ink on these cards.  They never should have retired the Adirondack line.  Grrr!!!!

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, coloring book, Copic markers
They say it's a Fab Friday.  It sure better be a Friday, lol.  What a week.

For my Tiddly Inks creation, I went straight to the Tiddly Inks digital coloring book Everyday Fun with Friends.  This image is one of the pages.  I simply printed it onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers.

Head on over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog.  There happens to be some beautiful Tiddly creations over there this Fab Friday.  You don't want to miss them!

Beautiful Mother's Day

Good thing I made this card *last* weekend, because this weekend I fell off my front step and broke my foot.  Not in the cardmaking mood...probably because the stamp room is upstairs and I'm spending a lot of time downstairs.

You can read all about this card on the A Jillian Vance Design blog today.

Happy Birthday, Succa!

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, cactus, succa
I squealed when Crissy Croll drew a cactus for Tiddly Inks because you know how much I love them.  In fact, she drew a bunch of cacti in this digital image set Cute Cactus.

It's a Tiddly Tuesday on this first day of May.  The challenge for this month is to create a Tiddly Inks project with Florals or Plants.  You can read all about the challenge and see some BEAUTIFUL creations on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.

For my card, I used one cactus from Cute Cactus.  I printed it onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. 

The sentiment cracks me up.  It is from A Jillian Vance Design and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.

A strip of pattern paper from an unknown source is along the side of the card panel.

Don't be a succa!  Join us at Tiddly Inks this month for all of the fun!

Tiddly Inks Spring Is Here Blog Hop

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, flowers
What a lovely day for a blog hop!  Tiddly Inks is celebrating the arrival of spring.   About one day a week it actually feels like spring around here, lol. Maybe all of these beautiful flowers will make things better.

This card features the Tiddly Inks digital image of Wryn Blooms.  It is an older Tiddly Inks image but I've had my eye on it for quite some time just waiting on the right time to use it.  I think a spring blog hop is the perfect occasion.

To make this card, I printed the adorable Wryn Blooms onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  I added a bit of sparkle to the flower centers with a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen.  The sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and is from Hampton Arts.  I added a small sequin below the sentiment for a little interest and balance.  The card base that shows along the side is dry embossed light blue cardstock.

I'm set for Mother's Day with this card.

And don't forget, you are set for all occasions with Tiddly Inks.

You will want to see all of the GORGEOUS spring creations on this blog hop.  You can find your way by following this link.

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, dachshund, Sloopy, weiner dog, love

Be still my heart!  The fabulous Christy Croll made my dreams come true with this new Tiddly Inks image Puppilicous Dachshund.  A few months ago she asked the Tiddly Inks Design Team for image ideas. I begged her for a dachshund, and this was the result.  She said it was modeled after Sloopy.  I'm in love.

Thanks you so much Christy!

To make this card, I printed the image onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from a stamp set made especially for Creative Chaos in Circleville called Buzzwords from Scraps Of Love.   I framed the image with scarlet cardstock and added a scarlet heart.

Tiddly Inks has so much wonderful, heartfelt images.  Go's Fab Friday on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.
