Tiddly Inks Love

So, one of my all time favorite places for digital images, and now clear stamps, will be releasing several new designs for the new year.  If you've never been to Tiddly Inks, go there now and check out all the fun seasonal Wryn and other images that Christy has to share!...

And maybe soon I'll make some creative time (& clean off my desk enough for some creative space) and play with some of the newer images I've gotten from this site....
Happy New Year!

CFC 34

It's not like me to get cards done more than a month ahead of time, but with some motivation from the CAS-ual Fridays blog, I did it!  For the chipboard challenge there, and for one sponsored by Simon Says Stamp at Lily Pad cards, I created not one, but TWO Valentine's cards already.  I used both the punch out ....

and the negative space....

 from a Fancy Pants chipboard piece.  Each is painted with acrylics and stamped in black with a Hero Arts background stamp.  Quick, easy, and done early- gotta' love that!

Happy 40th Susan!

As soon as I saw this brand new image, Wryn- new nest, from Tiddly Inks I thought of a dear friend with a birthday soon.  I love the way Wryn looks colored with Prismacolors- can't wait to see how see dresses up in Copics.  Following the latest wonderful sketch from Deconstructed Jen, I created this card...

TGF Blog Hop

I'm so excited to be part of the 3rd annual Greeting Farm customer blog hop today.  If you did not come from a TGF link, be sure to catch the beginning here to see all the wonderful creations using amazing Greeting Farm images.  I chose to create a holiday ornament using their Chibi Alaska digital image.
I started with a clear glass ball ornament, removed the hanger top, drizzled a bit of floor wax into it and swirled it around, covering the insides completely, and drained out all excess. Then I sprinkled in some lime green extra fine glitter and shook it up to cover the whole inside surface. I tapped the excess out (unfortunately all over my floor and kitchen counter because I sneezed at the wrong time...) and replaced the hanger. To finish, I attached some plastic snowflake buttons and a Chibi Alaska image colored with Copics and highlighted with glitter. Then I added a printed ribbon bow and thin red ribbon as a hanger.  She is definately my favorite new ornament this year.
Thanks for joining in the hop today. Be sure to leave a comment on the TGF blog for a chance to win. In addition to the two Grand Prizes that will be drawn for the participants' creations, a random hopper will ALSO win the ENTIRE upcoming January Release! That's 6 sets in all- a HUGE prize...and the only way to win is by participating in the blog hop here!

TPE 128

I love the digital images created by Lori Boyd here. and always am inspired by the creations of her wonderful design team. I frequently check out her blog or "pink elephant challenge" for inspiration.
So, when I needed to create a small Christmas gift for a friend, I decided to use her images and participate in one of the challenges for motivation. This ornament was created with TPE 128: snowflake and sparkle in mind. Although the photo doesn't show it well (quality color photos are hard to take inside at midnight!!!), there is a lot of glitter and sparkle in the ornament itself, and also added to the images.
