This week we’re excited to welcome another company that is new to Paper Crafter’s Library: Tiddly Inks.
Tiddly Inks’ images are illustrated by Christy Croll. Tiddly Inks offers their cute and unique images mainly as digital stamps, along with some clear stamp sets as well. Christy is a self-trained illustrator who likes simple, cute and quirky drawings with a sense of humor. She draws what amuses her, which means some days it is quirky and cute and other days it is a bit of a twisted gothic feel.
This week Tiddly Inks is giving away the two 3″ x 4″ clear stamp sets shown below.
In addition, they are offering a fabulous deal for any of you who want to purchase the digital version of the stamp used in the feature (shown below), which is called “Fox” Me Up. You can purchase this image for only $1 when you use the discount code PCL at checkout in the shop, www.tiddlyinks.com
Today we are thrilled to welcome 3 different Tiddly Inks Designers, each sharing their work. Below you’ll find a little bit about them as well as their project.
Tiddly Inks Designer – Lisa West
My name is Lisa and I live on the South Coast of the UK with my hubby, 5 year old boy and two year old girl. I have crafted on and off since I was a little girl, but have been seriously papercrafting for just over 10 years and have been very lucky to design for some fabulous companies. When I’m not crafting, which doesn’t happen often, I love to cook, bake, garden, watch TV/ movies and spend time with family.

This little 4 1/4″X 5 1/2″ card was inspired by the warm colours of the cute fox in the Tiddly Ink image. The Copic colors used for the image were chosen to match the DoodleBug Forest Friends paper, and the card was topped off with a Chevron Twill bow from May Arts Ribbon. The sentiment was hand lettered to add a personal touch, focusing on the “helping hand” theme in the image.

Tiddly Inks Designer – Myndi Fraser
I am a mom to five wonderful kids, spanning the ages of 18 to 2, and one Ragdoll cat. I have a great husband who puts up with all of us. I have lived all over the world as a Navy Brat, and then as a member of the Air Force. Now, I am a stay at home mom, and my kids keep me plenty busy.
I started crafting about five years ago, and I started colouring with Copics two years ago, and it has been my main crafting focus since then, although I am starting to get into mixed media now as well.
Get Well / Thank You Card
I made a card and left it sentiment free. It could be used as a “get well” card or a “thank you” card to someone who helped you through an illness. I distressed the edges of all the layers, inking up the edges of the image with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Victorian Velvet. I layered them all with the lace for the mat. I used hot glue to adhere the flowers, and craft glue to adhere the pearl string.
