New Stamp just arrived!

Hello crafting Folk or whoever reads my little blog! Just had to blog about this,I've had some digi images from Tiddly Inks and always loved them but I decided to buy an actual stamp,even though they are based in America the shipping cost was fantastic and I would have no hesitation getting more or recommending them to any one in the U.K. or anywhere else,so if you haven't already have a look at TiddlyInks.com,anyway this was the stamp I ordered.....
I was over the moon with my stamp as they are so cute and great to colour,but not only was this in my package there were a couple of FREE gifts aswell.....
some fun paper clips and cute little stickers,so a really big thank you to Christy the very talented artist at Tiddly Inks.I just couldn't wait to play with my stamp and here is my card I also used some penguin stamps again by Tiddly Inks and covered with snowy acetate......
such a pleasure to colour with a mixture of pro markers,spetrum noir and flex markers,I just love the images ,hope you do to!!!!

First Explore SVG cut

Good evening crafters just a quick one,still finding out more and more about my cricut explore.I bought a great svg file and this was the first thing I cut from it after downloading it into the cricut design space.....
so cute this little bird cage,but then had to decide what to do with it,so many possibilities and as I have a fun side I decided on an exploding box with a little fun so.......
nice normal little box,nothing special until the lid is removed.....
do you remember Looney Tunes.....Tweety Pie,Sylvester and Granny,these little cartoons made me laugh,and inside the cage.....
there's little Tweety on his swing!! This was so much fun to make but I don't think I can give it away!! haha

3D Cuts!

Trying something a little different on the explore,typed in 3d to the search box and cut out these 3 little items.....
the little shoe is so cool and ofcourse I still have to glamourise it up.....
I thought maybe a few gems on the heel and white fluffy feathers for along the back and some gems or feathers on the toe and then put it in a lttle clear acetate box with a gift tag but we shall see,the clock tower...
this is actually the first of a little Christmas village so I can't wait to cut the houses and add finishing touches and ofcourse the background.Then lastly the little car....
I have no idea what I'm going to do with it,I just thought it was cute but all you crafters out there I am open to suggestions!!!!

Sorting My Markers!!

I decided at long last to sort my markers out as I am really getting into colouring again,so to start I made myself some pen trays for my desk(as I hinted to my husband that I would like new markers and the trays for them for Christmas)I had some card from packages I recieved and I also used the Roald Dahl papers just to cover it,this is what I ended up with........

This was great for the Flex markers and the Spectrum noirs as they have the colours at the end so you can see what you need but I also have a few pro markers so I came up with this idea,this was a little time consuming bit I put a little of each colour on a piece of paper.....
I used a standard hole puncher to cut out each colour and a little glue to put it on the pen to which it belonged and these are my storage boxes now....
now at a glance I can see what colour I need,so it will make my life a little easier!!

A little more colouring!

Well I'm getting back into colouring and blogging,who could blame me with such great images from Tiddlyinks.com,if any of you haven't been on the site before please do go have a look! I must also confess that crafters companion are discontinuing 'strawberry kisses and Humphrey' so I bought myself some great stamp sets and my wonderful hubby has promised to buy me some new pens so I will be colouring loads although I will still be cutting on my cricut explore,anyway I have this 1 card for you to see this evening,the image is from Tiddlyinks and ofcourse coloured by me,the background paper is from a crafters companion cd and the holly was cut out on the cricut and lastly some little green pearls.....
I also wanted to add a close up of the image because she is so cute and I am quite pleased with my colouring......
Hope you enjoyed looking as much as I enjoyed making!

1 card 2 looks

Good evening all my crafting friends,I was going through my crafty stash and came across 2 little cards just plain crying out to be stamped on or just made into something different....
lovely little card as it is but because I got those beautiful Tiddly Ink stamps I am really enjoying colouring again,so the first is one I've stamped the image straight onto and then coloured it,I added some glitter and then a little sentiment......
the next I stamped onto white card and coloured it then cut it out,I also used my cricut to cut out some holly and the merry Christmas words and I also added a little verse on the front......
these stamps are so cute ,I think I may be hooked on Tiddly Inks lol.....now just habe to build my collection of pens but that will come!!!

Couldn't Wait!!!!

Just a quick blog I just couldn't wait to start using the Tiddly Ink stamps and embossing folder so here is the finished card....
I coloured the stamp with pro markers and spectrum noir markers I have a few of each but hope to get more soon! The back ground is 'Jingle Bells' music I downloaded from google and then lightly coloured over it......
I also backed everything onto green mirror card and triple folded the red bow just to make it 'pop' and finally I embossed the folder onto red mirror card through my cuttlebug......
and again backed it onto green mirror card,I also added a little green marker to the holly leaves.I am really pleased with how it turned out!
