Did you see the new images Tiddly Inks released? They are so cute. For my card I used the new Happy Mail images. They were arranged, printed out on Neenah Solar White cardstock and cut and embossed with the Out of the Box Technique as well as the second smallest of the new 5″ x 7″ Matting Basics A Spellbinders Paper Arts.

The image was colored with Copic Markers (Skin: E50, E21, E33, R20    Hair: YR24, E99, E39, E18   Dress/Bird/Flower: Y13, Y15, Y17, YR15   Mailbox: E31, E34, E29, W3, W5, BV20, BV23, BV25   Flower Center: E99, E09    Grass: YG01, YG03, YG17)  and the edges were sponged first with Summer Sky, then with Bahama Blue Memento Ink. The image was adhered to a piece of black cardstock that had been cut and embossed with the second smallest of the new 5″ x 7″ Detailed Scallops Spellbinders die.

A 2″ x 3 5/16″ piece of My Mind’s Eye Six by Six A Mother’s Love was adhered to a 3 5/16″ x 5 5/16″ piece from the same paper pack. The edges were sanded and stitched before the layers were adhered to the card base, a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Solar White cardstock, folded in half.

The sentiment from Happy Mail was printed out and cut and embossed with a new die from the Charmed I’m Sure Spellbinders Shapeabilities® die. A button was tied to the left hand side of the tag with silver cord before it was adhered to the upper right hand corner of the image layer.

The card works wonderful the current Tiddly Inks Challenge (anything goes.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles

  2. Beate, everything you do is fabulous. I’m not a huge fan of “cute” or “whimsical” stamps like this, but I really appreciate your beautiful coloring and layout. The black rectangle frames this perfectly, and that red button draws the eye right to the sentiment. Wonderful!
