Tiddly Inks Challenge Puzzle Birthday Hop

This week instead of Tiddly Inks regular challenge they are doing a special final birthday hop, but one part of this challenge was to post a card, any card that used Tiddly Ink digital stamp by 9pm.  Fortunately I had already colored one of the Bunny Boo Adventures for a card I was making for my niece who just had a little boy.  Nothing will make you feel old more than your niece having a baby……lol!  Boy they sure do grow up fast!
Anyhow, I used Copic markers to color the bunny in and also the blue background.  I then used Spellbinders to cut out the circle and layered lace circle and Sizzix to cut out my swirls.  Adding a little bling by adding gems and a couple of stars to add a little saying!
I hope you enjoy my quick creation for this week!

Tiddly Inks Challenge #48 Mother's Day & Tuesday Morning Sketches!

This week’s challenge was a Mother’s Day challenge, which is perfect, because I needed a card for my mother!  I also figured I would do 2 challenges at once, so I followed the pattern challenge on Tuesday Morning Sketch.
I picked 2 different digital stamps this week from Tiddly Inks.   The first one I did was the background flowers called Flower Garden – it is not just a digital stamp, but paper also.  Although a good portion of the stamp got cut up, it still worked for a background great!  I then used digital stamp FlutterBy which was part of the birthday release.  I did cut it out and again didn’t use all portions of the stamp as I cut out the butterflies.  I decided instead of cutting out each butterfly I would just use butterfly gems.
I used my Spellbinders to cut out the shapes and the Cuttlebug to give some texture to the sky.  Coloring it with Copic markers.  I was unfortunately at a hotel trying to do this so sometimes you have to cut stuff up before you go and hope it works.  Although as I started to put it together I may have done a couple things different if I was at home, I can’t complain, and my mom liked it, which was who it was for, so I guess that is all that matters……  I hope you enjoy my project this week.
