Flying By To Say Hi

 Hello Tiddly Peeps, 

Well just as I thought spring was coming, we have a world covered with white again. Perfect weather for crafting though so I've had a play with a couple of the cute new bugs.

You can find 'Bee Mine' and 'Love Bug' in the Etsy Store now.

I'm loving the slimline cards I'm seeing around lately and realised I hardly ever make these any more.  They're great when you just want to make something quick and easy though.

Have you grabbed these images yet? I'd love to see your makes in the Tiddly Inks Group on Facebook.

Lucky Charms Aren't Just For Leprechauns!

 Hey Crafty Peeps,

Happy St. Patrick's Day.  Are you all wearing green today? 

I'm not a fan of green to be honest so I'm wearing orange, but my kids went off to school proudly wearing their new green shirts.

It's been a while since I've coloured anything from The Paper Shelter as I've been concentrating on design team projects and work, but I won some a little while ago and had to have this gorgeous mermaid (The Mermaid and the Treasure).

I love making different types of cards and came across this one on Pinterest. Someone was frustrated with stepper cards always flopping, so they created one that's both a stepper and an easel!

I've kept the mermaid in cool tones, with some pop of warmth in the treasure chest and  surrounding starfish.

I am just loving these mermaid scale gems that were sent to me with a prize. They're perfect to nestle into my 'sea foam' cheesecloth!

Bright Poppy Thanks

 Hello Tiddly Peeps,

Have you seen the new HuggaBugs images yet? They're simply adorable. You can grab them in a set over at the Etsy store, including some fabulous extras.

I have combined Poppy Moth with one of the backgrounds to make a bright card to bring us all some sunshine!

I kept to just a few colours to help the image pop.

I love these sentiment dies that have a background part. I didn't want to have the sentiment stark black or red, so this was a great way to keep within the theme.

Are you in our Facebook Group yet? We have lots of people sharing their makes and you can too!

Masked Munchkins at Tiddly Inks

 Hello Tiddly Peeps,

Have you seen the new images that Christy has been adding to the store? Well, they're re-drawn old images, but they're new to me!

I couldn't resist colouring all of the Masked Munchkins as they're so adorable. You can grab the whole set over on Etsy.

Making four cards at once I decided to create a set, all of the same style but with different papers. I think these are perfect for kids' birthday cards.

Cup of Love at Tiddly Inks

 Hello Tiddly Peeps,

Happy Galentine's Day! I hope you are keeping warm wherever you are. I've seen below average temperatures in many places lately.

Today I am sharing a quick card I made using another of the surprise freebies that comes with 'Molly's Donut' (well I guess it's not a surprise anymore, lol). I figured this 'Cup of Love' would be perfect with a Missing You sentiment, as many of us cannot be with our friends right now. At least we can still share the love virtually.

I chose some bright colours for this fun image

I had fun with my Distress Inks for the die-cut background!

Have you discovered any freebies with your downloads? I'd love to see what you have created with them in our Facebook Group.

  • Distress Inks - Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade & Picked Raspberry
