Inky Sending U Hugs

Here is a simple love card I made to send to OWH a while back. I am a teacher and just switched to a new school in a new district so life is crazy busy right now. I havent had any crafting time but luckily I have quite a few projects I havent shared yet so I am spending the few free minutes right before bed to post a few of them.

The ticket is a sentiment by Inky Impressions.
I love how this quilt pattern came out. I used one of my punched and them embossed them with different folders. I couple of cute buttons and ribbon and there you have it. Simple and fun.

GDT Butterflies & Bow

This challenge on Card Mania is butterflies and bows. My butterflies are subtle on the background paper.
See here they are, lol. I used a punch that I haven't used much to make the double holes for the bow. I like it and might do it some more.
This image is super cute. This is a Paper Shelter image that I cut out with my Spellbinders and colored with Copics.

Tiddly Ink School Girl

My 3rd entry! Ya I tend to go overboard but when I get on a roll it is hard to quit. I really wanted to express my love for Tiddly Ink stamps!
Seeing as how I am a 3rd grade teacher I just couldn't pass up SchoolGirl. I was amazed that is was only $1. I love school images because I am constantly making cards and gifts for coworkers. This card is going to go to a fellow teacher. I like to give cards to teachers when they are feeling down so I left this one blank inside until I figure out who and why I am giving it out.
I colored her with Copics and added some red ink around the edges. I used some pop up dots to make her stand out against the busy background.
I used scraps of paper and added multiple layers. I used a couple school related brads to give the card a little something extra.

Repeat alert, lol. If you are here from Tiddly Inks I would like to thank you for your consideration. I truly love your stamps and would love the opportunity to showcase them. I add my creations to my FB page and Pinterest as well as here on my blog. I also add my creations into several FB groups. So I will work hard to showcase your cute stamps. Please look on my side bar for the Tiddly Inks label to see what else I have created using your stamps.

Tiddly Inks Missing You

Normally I don't post back to back but I am so excited to have the opportunity to apply for Tiddly Ink DT I couldn't help but make a few cards. I have one more to share but I think I will wait until tomorrow for that one.
Now this is the Tiddly Ink image that started it all for me. I say Wryn-Heartfelt Love on Pinterest and I was in love. I just love the dangling hearts and the fun you can have with these. I colored her with Copics and inked the edges with some dark pink ink. I added the missing you stamp in the corner of this image. That is one of the great things about this image, it can be used for just about anything. I can see myslef switching out that sentiment to many different ones in the future.

If you are here from Tiddly Inks I would like to thank you for your consideration. I truly love your stamps and would love the opportunity to showcase them. I add my creations to my FB page and Pinterest as well as here on my blog. I also add my creations into several FB groups. So I will work hard to showcase your cute stamps. Please look on my side bar for the Tiddly Inks label to see what else I have created using your stamps.

The papers are from DCWV.  I am donating this card to Operation Write Home (hence the no glitter). Sometimes it is so hard not to add glitter. The hearts would love so good with glitter. I guess I will need to make another card for myself and add glitter, lol. That will be no problem for me since I love this image.

Tiddly Inks Birthday Presents

Tiddly Inks stamps a recent addiction for me. I re-found them a few months back and have been obsessed every since. I have quite the collecting going. I have been waiting for a DT Call since the first week I discovered these lovelies. I am hopeful to join in show casing these beauties.
Picking one image that is my favorite was impossible! So I made three projects for this DT Call. Wyrn is my favorite. I will be showcasing Wyrn Birthday Girl. I colored her with Copics then added Stickles to the presents. I cut her our with my Spellbinder dies and added some dark pink ink around the edge. 
I like to decorate the inside of my cards as well. I have the papers inside but left out the sentiment. I will add it once I now who this card is going to. I like to personalize that insides.

The paper I used is DCWV Birthday Stack. I cut out the base of the card with my Cameo and a Silhouette File.

If you are here from Tiddly Inks I would like to thank you for your consideration. I truly love your stamps and would love the opportunity to showcase them.

Mist Heart Cards

I was in the mood to use my color sprays so I decided to make some cards to send to OWH. These are the only two colors I have that don't contain glitter. I used a paper mask I had left over from cutting something out with my Spellbinders on the top card. I used the purple only on the background and the green only on the heart. The bow came out perfect. I added a Jaded Blossom sentiment and a Heidi Swapp heart.
This one I sprayed both colors randomly and added only purple to the Heidi Swapp heart. I add some matching twine and a Pink By Design sentiment.

Both of these cards are on their way to Operation Write Home.

Blue Heart ~You+Me

I was experimenting with my alcohol inks and was not incredibly pleased with the results so I got out my circle punch and cut up the page I made. The circles looked a lot better than the layout did. I used some blue ink to distress the edges. It was a little to CAS so I added a strip of embossed paper and the blue Heidi Swapp heart. I also used alcohol ink on the heart. I added a Pink by Design sentiment that I love to use on cards I am sending into Operation Write Home.

IS ~ Sit & Read

 I made a simple card today. Sometimes the stamps with the perfect paper are all you need. I used Bazzill Vintage paper. The stamps are Inspired Stamps.
This one is from the very popular Hymn line. This is Hymn Girls: Sit and Read
