SLOOPY!

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, dachshund, Sloopy, weiner dog, love
TAKE A LOOK AT THIS!  SLOOPY....MY SLOOPY....INSPIRED THIS DIGITAL STAMP FROM TIDDLY INKS!

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 see....today's Fab Friday on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.

Colorful Birthday Balloons

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Distress Oxides, balloons, birthday
So much fun playing with Distress Oxides and water on glossy paper, then rubbed with Distress Micro Glaze.  Loving the vibrant colors that seem to magically appear.

These cards use the Happy Birthday Stamp Set and the Balloon Trio Die Set, both from A Jillian Vance Design.

Check out the post on the AJVD blog today for all the details about these cards.

Mermaid Circle Card

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Distress Oxides, mermaid
Go round or go home.  That's this month's challenge on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.  We sure hope you join in on all the fun.

My circle contribution is this card using one of the adorable mermaid images from Tiddly Inks' Amy and Her Mini Mermaid Friends.  I printed the adorable digital image onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I then fussy cut carefully around the image. 

The card base itself was made with the help of some circle frame dies from My Favorite Things.  The "ocean" was made by repeatedly activating Distress Oxides on glossy cardstock with water and then heat-setting.  Once I liked the look I applied some Distress Micro Glaze onto the circle to achieve the brightness of colors.

The sentiment is from a retired stamp set from A Jillian Vance Design and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.  A few crystal beads serve as bubbles to complete this card.

Swim on over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog for all of the challenge details.

Come back to this blog tomorrow for another I-played-with-Distress-Oxides-on-glossy-paper card.

Just Peeping In

Taylored Expressions, Kecia Waters, Peeps, Easter
"Just Peeping In" to say Happy Easter!

When Taylored Expressions released the Marshmallow Bunny Stamp and Die Set, I'm pretty sure it was made with me in mind.  No surprise that I had to own it.  Had to.

Wryn Shares Hope

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, cancer ribbon, hope
It's Fab Friday at Tiddly Inks

Today, I'm featuring one of the newer images from Tiddly Inks called Wryn Shares Hope.  I printed it onto X-Press It cardstock and colored it with Copic markers.  I did a bit of sponging around the edges of the card with Distress Ink Peacock Feathers.  The faint dots and stars, both images from Stamps By Judith were stamped with Distress Ink Peacock Feathers.  The sentiment is from The Cat's Pajamas and was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.

Go the the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog for some more Tiddly inspiration from the Design Team.  They certainly are the reason it's called Fab Friday.

And what a Fab Friday it is....woot!  A much needed Spring Break starts today at 2:55!

White Rose With Sympathy

AJVD, Kecia Waters, rose, sympathy, heat embossing
I usually struggle making sympathy cards.  I almost hate to admit how quickly this one came together.  I like the elegant look I achieved.

For this card, I white heat embossed the rose and the sentiment, both from the Beautiful Rose stamp set from A Jillian Vance Design, onto gray cardstock base.  I place onto a white card front panel and added a red heart punched from red cardstock.

This card is featured today on the AJVD blog.  Do go check it out.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Molly Celebrates

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, birthday
It's time for another Tiddly Tuesday!  Our March challenge is to use a Molly image from Tiddly Inks.  Such a hard challenge because it is so hard to choose which one to use.

I finally decided on the Tiddly Inks digital image Molly Celebrates.  Makes for the perfect birthday card, don't you think?  I printed the image onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I fussy cut Molly and placed her onto a card panel that was dry embossed with an embossing folder.  The strip along the side of the panel is some patterned paper from Lasting Impressions.  A few little pink sequins complete the details of this festive card.

Sure hope you join us during this Molly March!  Make sure to stop by the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog to get inspired and see all of the possibilities.

Green Leaf

AJVD, Kecia Waters, leaf
Isn't this leaf so realistic looking?  I just love the Grand Leaf Trio die set from A Jillian Vance Design.  I used it in the fall A LOT, but I started thinking how it is crazy not to use it in the spring and summer too. 

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

I'm Here For You

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers
The new release reveal continues at Sassy Cheryl's

Today, I'm sharing a card that features the new digital image "I'm Here For You".  I just love it.  I printed it onto Hammermill Color Copy and colored with Copic markers and did some shading with Prismacolor pencils.  Fearlessly, I fussy cut the image, lol.

On some white cardstock, I sponged Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean).  I added a little SeaShells SeaShell pink dye ink as well.  A couple of spritzes of water.  I made the grass with a MFT die, and sponged with Distress Ink Peeled Paint.  I placed the white frame, cut from a MFT die, over the scene and placed the heartfelt Sassy Cheryl's image into the scene.  The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and is from MFT. 

If you want "I'm Here For You", you can get it at a discounted price today, over at Sassy Cheryl's.  Simply enter the code LOVEME

New Friendships

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, umbrella
It's March 1st.  How is that possible?

With a new month comes a new release from Sassy Cheryl's.  Today I bring to you the new digital image called "New Friendships".  I printed it onto Hammermill Color Copy paper and colored it with Copic markers.  I did some shading and some detailing with Prismacolor pencils.  If you are wondering about how I did the raindrop effect...I simply took my Copic blender pen and randomly put big blobs all over my picture.  I'm kinda liking the effect.

This heartfelt image is available at a special discount over at Sassy Cheryl's from 9:00 AM Eastern until 9:00 AM tomorrow. Simply enter in the code  FRIENDS

I'll be back again with another new image tomorrow with a new code.  See you then!

This card is featured today on the A Jillian Vance Design blog.  Make sure you head on over and read all the details.

My stamp room is a total wreck.  I got the idea to get rid of some stuff this weekend and now it actually looks worse.  Good thing I am off today.

You Are Loved, Yupo!

Kecia Waters, heart, yupo, alcohol inks, Valentine
So, I finally played with alcohol inks and yupo paper over the weekend.  SO fun!  What's even more fun is that I have several alcohol inks in a drawer from the last time they were so trendy and popular.  Yupo paper is new to me.  I think it is going to be my new friend.

I after playing with some reds and purples, I cut the yupo paper with a Spellbinders die.  HOW PRETTY!  I then cut the word "you" from a piece of black cardstock with a Taylored Expressions die.  I teamed it up with "are loved" from a very versatile stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I adhered a few purple sequins for some interest.  I framed the card panel with some bright purple cardstock.

A quick card....the result of just playing.  If you haven't tried alcohol inks on yupo yet, I encourage you to do so.  Again, it is just plain fun.

Tiddly Inks Galore!

Tiddly Inks, Copic markers, thinking of you, Kecia Waters
If you have not been to Tiddly Inks lately, you need to know you are missing out on a bunch of amazing images being released by Christy.  She is an illustrating machine right now (I can't keep up, lol). 

This image is from the Tiddly Inks stamp set Pawfect Day.  It is available digitally, as well as in a clear set.   For this card, I kept all of the cute little paw friends away and just focused on having Wryn.  She looks rather pensive, so I thought this sentiment from Simon Says Stamp seems perfect, serving as a thinking of you card.  The image is colored with Copics.  The paper I used was Hammermill Color Copy.  The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink.  A few white sequins were added to the white space for interest.  The patterned paper is from an unknown source.  Another product of my hoarding, lol.

Now...go.  Treat yourself to some Tiddly Inks candy.

To My Love

Kecia Waters, watercoloring, Valentine's Day, hearts, AJVD
This card became home to some die cut hearts I cut from a piece of Canson Watercolor paper.  I was simply playing around with the following Distress Inks: Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, Candied Apple and Dusty Concord.  I had smeared these ink pads onto a craft mat and misted with water. With an acrylic block, I picked up the colors and applied to the watercolor paper.

The hearts were cut with a die from A Jillian Vance Design. The sentiment is from AJVD too.  The sequins were added for some interest. You can read all about this card over on the AJVD blog today. 

Thank you so much for visiting the my blog today.

Owl You Need is Love

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, owl, Valentine's Day
It's another Fab Friday over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog. Make sure to visit all of the Design Team goodness over there.  Lots of new Tiddly Inks images are being shown off.

My card though has an oldie but goodie image.  It is called Who Loves You?.  I still think it is so adorable and fun.  I printed the digital image onto X-Press It cardstock and then printed it again onto masking film.  I fussy cut the masking film to place over the X-Press It image.  I sponged the sky, ground and moon with various dye inks.  I then removed the mask and colored the image with Copic markers.  The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and is from A Jillian Vance Design.

Time to get in full gear with Valentine's Day cardmaking.  Tiddly Inks has some LOVE-ly images.  Go see.

A Helping Hand

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Valentine, dog
Just one more day until Sassy Cheryl's has all of these fabulous new digital images in her shop.

Today, I bring to you the fourth and final image.  It is called "A Helping Hand".  I printed it onto X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  The side strip of patterned paper was simply a scrap I have been hoarding.  The heart was cut from a punch from this same scrap.  The sentiment is from an old There She Goes stamp set.  I thought it was appropriate to get out the Baker's Twine on this card since it looks like something wonderful is about to be whipped up.

And there you have it.  It has been a blast getting to show you the January release for Sassy Cheryl's.  Remember, it goes live tomorrow morning at 6:00 eastern.  This release will satisfy all of you Valentine's Day cardmaking needs, don't you think?!

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Valentine
Hello again!  And welcome to Day 2 of the January release from Sassy Cheryl's

Today, I get to share two more digital images from the release. 

The card above features the digital image of "Forget Me Not".  It will be available at 6:00 AM Eastern on Sunday, January 7.  This particular image was so much fun to color, especially that tree.  I printed the image onto X-Press It cardstock and colored the image with Copic markers.  The die "you" is from Taylored Expressions and "are loved" is from Simon Says Stamp.  The heart is a punch.

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, mice, coffee, Copic markers

Share and Share Alike

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers
Get ready!  Sassy Cheryl's is releasing four new digital images.  They are so sweet and adorable.  You will want them all.

I am honored to share the first one with you.  It is called "Share and Share Alike".  It will be available for purchase at 6:00 AM Eastern on Sunday, January 7th. 

To make this card, I printed the image of "Share and Share Alike" onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from an old There She Goes stamp set and was stamped with Marvy Black dye ink.  I kept it rather CAS and just adhered the image panel to some kraft cardstock.  Sort of a vintage feel, if you will.

I'll be back again tomorrow with two more images from the release.  In the meantime, here's a tease for one of them...

Best Chapter of My Life

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, reading, books, Valentine's Day, Copic markers
We're back!  The Tiddly Inks Design Team got some rest and relaxation, but now we are ready to make 2018 a great year.

Our first challenge is an "Anything Goes" challenge.  You know, we got to ease back into things.  We hope you join us.  All of the details are over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.

I decided to feature the adorable Tiddly Inks digital image "Sweet Dreams Wryn".  Doesn't she look all warm and cozy?  With this cold weather, I'm thinking she has the right idea.  I printed the image onto X-Press it cardstock and colored the image with Copic markers.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.  I wanted this card to work for Valentine's Day.  What do you think?

Thanks so much for visiting my blog.  I hope you come back for more visits during 2018.  I do appreciate your time and comments very much.
