Just Scooting by for a Tiddly Inks Birthday

Hi All,

Happy Saturday to everyone! I’m just relaxing this morning thinking about playing with some watercolor pens later today. I ordered a basic 12 color set of the Kuretake Clean Color Real Brush Pens, so I think I’m going to do some experimenting later this evening or tomorrow.

Right now I wanted to share the card I made for one of my co-workers whose Birthday was last week.

I’ve had this digi image from Tiddly Inks since it came out and had been itching’ to put it on a card for a while.   This image is called Wryn Scooting by. I have to admit that I was sold when I realized that this cute little digi had a doggie riding on the back of the scooter with Wryn. How stinkin’ cute is that? The nice thing about this digi is that you actually get 3 different images to color. One has Wryn with her doggie, then there’s Wryn with her kitty and finally Wryn by herself (for those of you that aren’t animal lovers I guess).  Confession, I actually broke down and ordered the actual stamp for this image because I liked it that much, LOL.

First I started with coloring Wryn and her dog using my Copic markers. I added a little Wink of Stella clear to the hubcaps and finally some Glossy Accents to the goggles the dog is wearing.

Once she was colored, I fussy cut her out and added some dimensional foam to the back of her.

Next I used the Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX from Die-namics and cut two pieces of  cardstock from the largest die.

Then I used the scalloped border die from the Die-namics Blueprints 20 set and cut a piece of polka-dot paper from a Kaisercraft Kaleidoscope paper pad.

Finally, I cut a piece of black cardstock 1/4 inch larger than my scalloped polka-dot piece.

I layered each piece onto a A2 size card base made from Neenah Solar White cardstock.

I added my Jumbo Fishtail Banners so that they were a little offset then added my colored Wryn image to the top. I actually typed up the sentiment for the card front and then die cut with the small banner die which was also from the Blueprints 20 set. I used a little bit of Ranger distress ink in Dried Marigold around the edge of my sentiment.

Then I added a few orange Sugar Dots to the card front. Here’s a look at the finished card:

The best part about putting this card together is the squeal of delight I received from my co-worker who loved it. Makes me feel good when people like my cards because I enjoy making them and sharing them.

Well, as August is apparently a huge month for Birthday’s, I have another Birthday card that I’m working on which features some “Crazy Birds” (if ya catch my drift) that I’ll be able to share here next weekend.

Hope everyone has an amazing weekend! Do something fun and crafty! Hubs and I will be going to a BBQ at a friend’s house tonight.
