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!

Hooked On You

Last year, I learned how to crochet.  So, I'm sort of in love with this card because now, along with stamps, I seem to collect yarn, lol.

You can read all about how I created this card on the A Jillian Vance Design blog.  (Well, actually you can't.  Sorry about the confusion).  If anyone wants to to know how to make this card or need specifics about the products used, just send me a message.

Surprise from Jason

Ten years ago, I had a student named Jason in my Kindergarten classroom.  Fast forward to last week when I reached into my home mailbox.  I found a package from Jason.  In it was the most adorable dachshund pillowcase ever.  I am touched that he thought of me and remembered my love for Sloopy after all of these years. 

So, I made him this thank you card.  The fun dachshund alphabet is from Cowtown Stamps, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. The other part of the sentiment is from Honeybee Stamps.  That's some fun washi tape along the bottom of the card.

Thanks so much, Jason!  I'm so proud of the kindhearted soul you are.

A Fringe Flower Hello

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Distress Inks, flower, hello
Every now and then, I make a card I actually like.  This is one of them.

I'm not sure why I waited an eternity to play with the A Jillian Vance Design Fringe Flower Die Set like I did.  This card came together quickly.  The coloring method is sponging Distress Inks onto scrap pieces of white cardstock and simply die-cutting.

You can read all about this card today on the AJVD blog.

Light My Life

TIddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, lighthouse
It's July's Fab Friday at Tiddly Inks!

For my contribution, I made this card using the Tiddly Inks digital image of Light My Life.  I printed it onto X-Press It cardstock and colored the image with Copic markers.  I then added the wave border along the bottom of the card cut with a Memory Box die.  The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and is from A Jillian Vance Design.

Make sure you check out the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog to see some beautiful Tiddly cards and projects.

Have a great weekend!
