Tiddly Alien Cuteness!

Argh! Every have one of those crafting days when everything seems to go awry? My Cricut seems to be on the fritz and decided to stop for no apparent reason. My Blue Copics are all running OUT, not low, OUT. And my printer ink smudged all over while colouring this project. I'm not sure which items to replace first, I seem to be running low on EVERYTHING, even my Glossy Accents, for shame! Argh!

Admittedly I think this little guys is much cuter in green skin tones, but I didn't choose a DT with green in it, my bad. As well, he is much darker then I intended, it was my light Copics that kicked the bucket. I did my best to work through all my colouring dilemma's, but something was terribly off today. I am not positive, but I think the scrap of Copic Paper I used may not have been Copic paper, hence all my issues.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your crafting is going smoother then mine ;D

Entered into the Following Challenges:
Card Patterns - Sketch #149
Craft Your Passion - #94 Colour Bingo - Blue, Red Grey

LMM - Blue and Cream #27 Play Along

Today's challenge over at the Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog is to use Blues and Creams. Easy enough.
I used LMM image Paprika. I didn't do her justice however, and got a way too carried away with the blue, much darker then I had planned. The paper is from SU, a paper pack I won waaaaaaay back, not even sure what the colour is called, it's not "Not Quite Navy" Oh well. Enjoy and please grab a Little Miss Muffet image and join along with us this week.

TI - Colour Challenge #78

Sorry this is late. The weekend was busier then I anticipated. The lucky winner of the Belinda image is #36 Anita of Just A Pigment of My Imagination!

Tiddly Tuesday - Color Challenge - green, yellow, orange and blue

Welcome back to another Tiddly Inks Challenge - #78. This week we have a Colour Challenge for you. Lets see how these colours inspire you!

Color Challenge - green, yellow, orange and blue

As you can see, I didn't EXACTLY adhere to the same shades as the colour image, but we have included the words too, they are where I chose my inspiration.

When I saw the challenge colour palette image, I instantly thought of this SU Delicate Dots DP collection. I happened across a wonderful tutorial for making paper chevrons by Jennifer McGuire Ink, which bloomed these creations. They look incredibly complicated, but are easy to make and use very little DP.

All of my supplies seem to be running out at once. So some of my colouring is off due to low Copic ink. I've found that my Copics stop blending easily once the colour starts to dry out. My greens, blues and skin tones are all acting up! blah!

TI - Baby Girl
I had to reprint her head and adhere with dimensional tape due to Copic ink failure ;(

Friends are the Flowers of Life - Tiddly Inks Blog Hop

Welcome to Tiddly Inks' first blog hop of the year!

We are celebrating the many friends that make our world a more lovely place and are so glad you are here as one of them. :)

We are trying to keep this simple, so the blog hop is based on the Challenge Blog home page. Instead of directing you to the next page, we suggest you keep the Challenge Blog open and create a new window for the hopping around (click Control when you click on each link and it will open the link in a new window).

After you visit with me today, just click HERE to return you to the main list (and that is where the prizes are listed...hint!)

Have fun playing along with everyone!

Tiddly Inks - Wryn or my boo ;D
Did you know that Tiddly Inks - Wryn is loosely based on Chrisy's daughter? Our kids must look alike because this is a complete caricature of my Boo, straggly hair falling out of the pony tales and all. The only thing missing is her busily doodling away with crayons.

I used a sheet of chipboard that shipped with an online order and cut it with my SU Top Note die run through my Cuddle Bug Machine.

My project today is a chipboard mini album using my SU - Top Note die and Wryn of course. You know how I love the bright colours, so I dipped into my Echo Park - Splash collection again - it has served me so well.

Inspired by Julie Johnson of Paisley and Polkadots, I tried to make a bundled mini album that was busting with accents without looking messy. Check out her blog, her mini albums are so stinkin' creative.

These photos are varying ages of Princess-ness!

Lots of chipboard layers.
Also, some great news! As a special thank-you for stopping by today, Christy has donated Belinda (seen below) to one lucky commenter of this post. So please leave a comment on this post, include your email address for your chance to win. There are more single image prizes to be won, so check out ALL the DT members blogs or you'll miss out.

LMM #26 Something New

I used E11, E33 and R23 for the skin tones on the middle Sugar N Spice doll. What colour Copics do you use for darker skin? As you can see, I started at her feet using E31 too, but it turned it all a bit green so didn't end up using it elsewhere.

Hey all, time for our first Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge of the new year and it's a super easy one - Use Something New! We also have two new DT Members joining us this week, so please welcome AJ and Shelby.

I have used these Little Miss Muffet's image - Cinnamon, Rosemary & Peppermint in this configuration for a previous challenge. They are from the Sugar N' Spice Doll Collection at LMM. Anyway, I had an extra copy printed just in case I messed up with my Copics. I've been meaning to use the extra, so today was as good a day as any. Cinnamon, Rosemary & Peppermint are so adorable together, they look like they are ready for a party, hence the Let's Get Together sentiment from Studio G Clear Stamps.

My something new is the "Parisian" border punch from Michael's which was left in my stocking. Thanks Santa ;D All combined with old various Echo Park - Summer Days DP.

Okay so now that you have seen my card and hopefully checked out the other LMM DT's, grab yourself something new and play along.

Submitted for the following challenges:
The Crazy Challenge - CCH #100 Party
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - New Something (new border punch)
Scrap-Creations Challenge - Something Old, Something New (new punch, old paper scraps)
Sassy Studio Designs - Something New #106 (new border punch)

Oh my gosh, I think I am in a Holiday coma. When I finally dragged myself to my craft table, which had been confiscated for the Christmas dinner table, I had a lot of searching to do. I couldn't find half my stuff. So scraps it was, along with some new Christmas goodies.

This card is to celebrate my hubby and I's 19th wedding Anniversary which is January 30th. He saw me colouring the image and ran off to grab some googly eyes. He very desperately wanted me to use them on the girl so she would looked shocked.

October Afternoon DP - Fly a Kite
Sentiments - SU: Treat Yourself, Studio G: always and forever
I used my NEW EK success Journal page punch and Tim Holtz game spinners. I didn't realize the dials had turned down until I uploaded the photo, oh well.

My little darling 6 year old daughter played along with me this week too. She has some fun cards she made to send to her extended family. How cute. With Christy's permission, I also made up a Inkspot watermark just for her.

SU sentiment -
I smudged out her handwritten name on the tag and under the circle stamp.
Jillybean - Watermelon and Gazpacho Soup DP
