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

Back To Reality!

Well the kids are back to school today and the sun is shining. It's so quiet here now, but it's nice to have some time to myself!
Do you ever save photos of a card meaning to blog them, but then other projects need to be done first and they kind of get left to the wayside?  That's today's card for me.  It's a bright anniversary card that I made for my parents a while ago using Power Poppy's 'Chinese Lanterns'.  I love this image, it's so fun to colour and is great for many occasions. 

I created a bright background using distress inks and finished off with some sequins

Products used:

  • Kraft card blank
  • Kraft & coloured cardstock
  • Corner die
  • Sequins
  • Tim Holtz Script Words sentiment die
  • Distress Inks - Mustard Seed & Spiced Marmalade
  • ProMarkers - Walnut, Saddle Brown, Pine, Forest, Moss, Burnt Orange, Pumpkin & Gold

Celebrate The Twenties

Do you follow Tiddly Inks? Christy has recently closed the blog challenge and her website store and moved over to being solely on Etsy.  With this move came the downsizing of the design team, with a DT call in December.  I am so excited to announce that I was chosen as one of the few!

So for my first post of the year I have chosen the perfect image to bring us into the New Twenties! 'Shine Bright Flapper Couple' is now available in the Etsy store and is perfect for many occasions. 

I used a bright, fun colour scheme and some sparkles.  I was feeling champagne bubbles for the background.

I used a chipboard sentiment and some gems to finish off

Products used:
  • Card blank
  • Patterned paper
  • Cardstock
  • Gems
  • Chipboard sentiment
  • Spectrum Noir Sparkle - Spun Gold
