Friends are the Flowers of Life - Tiddly Inks Blog Hop

Hello! It’s time for another blog hop…Tiddly Inks style! The theme of this hop is Friends are the Flowers of Life. You can find all of the details HERE. For my card, I used Pinky.

I colored Pinky with my watercolor markers. And I did blonde hair! Which is something I never do. Here’s a close up.

I want that cupcake! Love the skully on top! For the rest of the card, I just played around with different papers and colors. I made sure that most of the circles had flowers in them, because of the theme, and of course, my sentiment goes with the theme as well. It says “you are my best friend.” I “built” it with words that I have from K & Co. If you notice, they are all different colors. But to make them work together a little better, I inked the edges of each word in the same pretty shade of green. This unifies them a bit.

I added a few blobs of Stickles for some sparkle…cause how could I not add some sparkle to this card? ;) I think it’s a sweet card.

There is a lot more hopping to be done! Be sure to hop back to Tiddly Inks to see the other wonderful creations!

For those of you that frequent my blog, I have some exciting news! I sold my first Washer Necklace on Etsy! I am so, so excited! And I promptly re-listed it so that perhaps I can sell some more! The blog post for it, in case you missed it, is HERE. Thanks to all of the kind words I’ve received about them. They seem to have a pretty nice following!

And thanks to all of you hoppers that are visiting for the first time! Have an inspiring day!!!

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team will be sharing projects that fit the theme, "Dear Santa, I've Been Good!" I used the sweet Christmas Package stencil (which frankly, can be used for plenty of other occasions too!), and a scrap I had leftover from the Chevron Stencil. Check out the full tutorial below.



Supplies:

Directions:

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
