Bloody Great Birthday at Tiddly Inks

It might be Valentine's Day, but I'm sharing the love with a birthday card. I've been dying to share, but had to wait until it was received.
When I saw this image I had to have it as it is so different and perfect for a few people I know!  You can grab "Bloody Great Birthday" over at the Tiddly Inks Etsy store.


The recipient loves purple, just like me, so I had to make the top and hat band this colour.  The other colours I have kept pretty neutral to make the 'blood' drips stand out more. 

The image comes with extra pieces, so I decoupaged these to give more dimension

You can't have a Bloody Great Birthday without some poison. I continued the bubbles with some gems

I usually use brads or plastic flower centres, so thought it would be cool to use some smaller flowers instead for a different effect

I finished off with a sentiment that I created in Photoshop

Poppin' With Gifts at Tiddly Inks

With the extreme cold temperatures we've been having here, I have just wanted to curl up under a blanket with a movie!  So in thinking about movies, "Poppin for You Molly" seemed the perfect image to use for my next project.

I had bought some mini popcorn boxes for when my kids had friends over and had some left. These are the perfect size to use as gift boxes and of course go perfectly with the image. 

I coloured Molly's skirt in bright yellow to contrast with all the red and white of the box.  

I finished my box with a bright yellow ribbon and some sequins so the front wouldn't look so plain. The handle is ribbon on top of a strip of card to keep it from flopping down.  Of course being a gift box I had to add a couple of 'cinema' tickets to complete the look! These are edged with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo

ProMarkers - Cinnamon, Tan, Dusky Pink, Satin, Berry, Red, Cool Grey 1 & 2, Champagne, Sandstone, Black, Cool Grey 5, Gold, Sunflower, Yellow, Burnt Orange, Spice, Ginger, Apricot, Caramel & Pumpkin
