- City Crafter - Autumn Leaves Falling
Thursday, October 28, 2010
Good morning! I hope today finds you doing well!
I want to share another vintage set with you from Create with TLC. This sentiment just makes me giggle every time I see it. I hope it brings a smile to your face as well.
Please forgive the funky colors from my scanner. it didn't seem to appreciate the greens and yellows last night as I entered the card in..... irl there is a much greater difference I assure you.
I tried something fun and new on this card - I used the spritz sparkle spray as a paint here on the water. and oh my landsakes, I will most certainly be doing it again! there is such a beautiful shine that went exactly where I wanted it! it gives a lighter coverage than my beloved shimmerz paint - just a subtle shine. gorgeous!!! you will see another project using a different use for this fun spray tomorrow, too, so be sure to tune in! :)
I grabbed some neat goodies from my stash on this project - this great flourish transparency gifted to me by my friend, Melissa, some paper from my Rhonda stash, and lovely Daisy D's paper that I try so hard not to hoard, but love so very very much. some fun punches, a few unique buttons, a Prima, and good old fashioned twine finish this off.
enjoy your day and I will see you tomorrow! btw, I am sooooooo close to being caught up on craft projects! yeeehaw! :)

Coffee of the Day - Tiramisu
Hello everyone! Sorry to have been away for a bit. We had the entire fam at home for the weekend. Mick had Fall break until Tuesday, so what a joy to spend some extra time with him! didn't even know such a thing existed, so that was a treat indeed! then had a few other not-so-treatful things to deal with, but don't wanna talk about ickies here.... so suffice it to say, my crafting has been on hiatus for a while.
But now I am back and better than ever! tee hee! I don't know about better, but I am back! :D
I have a card to share with you made for the SCS Hope You Can Cling To challenge - Let's Dabble in Some Scrabble. The idea is to make a square card with pink and then add at least 4 other squares. I chose to use this adorable little Baby Bud Designs image called 'Heidi'. I used fun papers from the Cosmo Cricket DeLovely collection, added some faux stitching with my white gel pen, popped up the main image with some foam tape. added a few highlights with shimmerz paints, and then put on a few more little embellies to accent. The card is a smaller square than I usually make, coming in at 4 1/4" square.
I hope all of you have been well! see you tomorrow! :)

- Tiddly Inks - Diamond Glaze/crackle accent
Sunday, October 3, 2010
Good morning! Just a quickie little post to start us off. It was a BRISK 45* here this morning when I woke up. add the rain on top of that and my toes were chillin'! think it is time for a new pair of pink fluffy slippers for these tootsies! hope you are comfy cozy wherever you are today!
I wanted to send Tyler out the door this morning with a card for his girlfriend. He told me that her fave flowers are daisies, so I printed out this precious little one from Baby Bud Designs.
To do something a little different, but still try to keep with a fall feel, I went with paper from Basic Grey's Sugar Rush collection. I like the fun, fresh colors in this pack, in addition to the funky, hip mood it inspires. Added a bit of vintage lace tied with some buttons, a scalloped photo corner, and Prima with rhinestone center. a few little glitter pen accents complete the card once a rub-on sentiment was added. Pretty simple, but I think she will like it.
The fall/Halloween challenge is still going on over at Baby Bud Designs throughout the month, so we would love to have you play along! A great prize pack is up for grabs! :)

Sorry to be so late posting today. for those of you who aren't aware, today is World Card Making Day!!!! woooo hooo! doing the old lady fist pump over here... btw, that is becoming my signature move much to the delight (cough, cough, sputter, sputter) of my beloved family. hey, I figure at 46 years of age, I need a signature move. so why not the fist pump that so many 'noted' celebrities have adopted as their own? I can be so ghetto right along with them! ;)
anyhow, I think we need to start a petition stating that all take-out should be free and there should be mandatory pedis on WCMD. anyone want to be the first to sign? I have a pen right here.......
okay, on to my card -
the other day I was blessed beyond belief to discover I had won the challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's. so on a shopping spree I went! this adorable angel bunny was the first image that went into my cart. it is my new fave digi by her! isn't this little cutie just as precious as can be? I sparkled her up with so much glittery shimmer shine, but of course none of it came through the scan.... sigh.....
the wings were painted with opal shimmerz and then sprinkled with white glitter. I rubbed off a bit of the glitter to add to the prim feel. the hearts on her dress are painted with the same opal shimmerz, stars with sunny shimmerz, and dress lace with candlelight. I made a flower from pink tissue and a portion of a hymnal page that were all sprayed with pearl glimmer mist. The glitter leaves behind the flower are Prima. Papers are Basic Grey Figgy, pearly buttons are from my vintage stash, little baby tag is Making Memories, and vintage seam binding finishes it off. oh yes, can't forget the doily!
I am trying to get back involved over at SCS, so was reading about some of the WCMD challenges going on over there today. I will be sending this card off to the cancer hospital in Texas as part of their month long drive. I know I will be making more cards for this great cause, so will have more info for you in future posts.
