Tiddly Inks Blog Hop - Friends are the flowers of life!

I love it when a company opens up a blog hop for all it's fans! And when I saw Tiddly Inks released a new character line called Wryn & Friends - well, I KNEW I had to purchase 1 (or 5) and make a card for the special hop today. Be sure to check out the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog for a list of everyone participating. 



I am a huge fan of Tiddly Inks but haven't had much time to create just for the sake of creating - this card I did just that. I used Wryn - Close to my Heart. I printed her on Copic Xpress It Cardstock and colored her with Copics. The paper is Basic Grey Out of Print and the lace & seam binder come from Creating is Fun. I JUST got this new rolled paper flower die by CC Designs and I'm having SO much fun with it. It makes the perfect rolled rose each and every time. I will be posting a video tutorial next week so be sure the check back or subscribe to my youtube channel so you won't miss it. :D



I actually used a new green combination for me, G14 & YG13 and I think I'm in love with it now. I also used a new RED combination as I just added 6 new colors to my R family this week, so for the heart I used R12, R14, R17 & R29. I have to be honest, I haven't loved an image like this in a long time. I have a feeling you will be seeing a LOT of Wryn & Friends on my blog!

Well, I want to keep it short & sweet as there is a VERY long list of blogs to hop through. I can't wait to get started myself. I'm bound to be inspired and learn a few things along the way.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey Carisa - totally awesome card. Amazing hair coloring. I really need some lessons!! Great flowers too.

Sarah said...

Hi Carisa, just wandered over to your blog from Krista's Saturated Canary Challenge blog and spotted the Tiddly Inks card - another one of my fav stamp lines!

Absolutely love this card - the image is gorgeous (and perfectly coloured) the colour combination is wonderful but what really spoke to me was the sentiment. I would never have thought of combining this image with that sentiment - but it works perfectly!

Sorry to have waffled on, but love your card and had to say.

Sarah

Ardelle Kanode said...

I absolutely LOVE LOVE this card. I have a baby shower coming up with someone very important and this card is perfect. If I had the stamp I would scraplift the idea, but I do not! Will you sell it? I've looked for a month now for a card and have not seen one that I like as much as this one!

Carisa said...

Ardelle, I would love to sell you a similar card if you are interested. I can use the same stamp and sentiment but since that was a rub on it would be slightly different. Let me know if this is something and email me at czglobicki at msn dot com

I tried to respond to your comment but you didn't leave your email and I couldn't find your blog. I hope you get this!
