Nuts About You

It's another Tiddly Tuesday!  This month's challenge on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog is all about dimension.  Go check out all of the details here and please play along with us this month.

For my creation, I decided to create a center step card.  The digital images are from the digital stamp set Fun Animals from Tiddly Inks.  I printed the squirrel, acorns and greeting onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored them with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. I fussy cut all of the images and arranged them onto the card. The grass is cut from a MFT die and I colored the grass by sponging my favorite color in the whole world...Adironack Lettuce dye ink.  The patterned paper on the card is from Carta Bella.

Thanks for being one of the eleven people who come to this blog.  I appreciate you sticking with me.

Another Pumpkin

Gina Marie Designs, Kecia Waters, Distress Oxides, pumpkin
I thought I should share another creation from the Gina Marie Designs Pumpkin Quilt Die.  This time around I used only the pumpkin pieces from the die.  I watercolored the die cut pieces with Distress Oxides. My favorite part of the pumpkin is the little curly Baker's Twine.  Totally makes the card in my opinion, but allows it to remain simple as well.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, which has somehow become a pumpkin patch, lol.

Pumpkin Quilt Die

Pumpkin Quilt, Kecia Waters, die cuts
At Stampaway, I truly can't resist the Gina Marie Designs booth.  I had to pick this Pumpkin Quilt Die.  Last weekend I started to play with it (about time!).  The above card uses patterned paper from Carta Bella.

The card below is the result of me playing with Distress Oxides on glossy paper and then applying Distress Micro Glaze.  I'm not sure what I think of it.

Both cards also use a greeting die from A Jillian Vance Design.

Tree Hugger

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Tree Hugger, Tree, Copic markers
I love the art of Mother Nature in the fall.  I couldn't resist turning the digital image of Tree Hugger from Tiddly Inks into an autumn tree.  I printed the image onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers using this month's color palette on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.  The sentiment is from A Jillian Vance Design and the patterned paper on this card is from Carte Bella.  A few sequins complete the details of this card.

Won't you join us for this month's challenge on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog?  Head on over and see some fabulous creations from the design team for inspiration.

Tiddly Inks, Genius, Kecia Waters, Copic markers

September is here.  Time for another challenge on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.  This month it is all about the boys.

For my card, I printed the sweet digital image of "Genius" from Tiddly Inks.  I colored the image with Copic markers, tried a new wonky die from Gina Marie Designs and mounted to a gray card panel.  

Felt good to take a few moments to color.  The start of the school year has consumed me.  Yay for the three day weekend that just passed.  I got to breathe a bit.

Take a few moments this month to join us, won't you?  All of the details for the challenge are on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.

The Ball Drop

I know it seems a bit early for this, but I had this idea a few weeks ago and wanted to see if could make a card to match my idea.  I succeeded.

You can read all about this card on my last post for A Jillian Vance Design on the AJVD blog.

Light Up My Life

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, fireflies, Copic markers
It's time for another Tiddly Tuesday!  This time around we are being challenged to created a Clean and Simple card.  That seems to be all I do, lol.

For my card, I used the Tiddly Inks digital image of Light Up My Life.  I printed the image onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  The glow from the fireflies was colored with Distress Oxide.  Using a circle die, I drew the circle that is acting as the sky.  I also drew the little dots around the circle.  The sentiment is from A Jillian Vance Design.

Sure hope you join us this month for the Clean and Simple challenge.  Go to the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog for all of the details.

I think the real challenge is how to keep our lives clean and simple, lol.  There's always something.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!
