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.

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.

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.
