Designing with….Chickaniddy!

Hello crafty friends? How are you? I am doing well. The husband and I are balancing work outside of the home with helping a pair of kindergarteners read, enjoying our little preschooler expand his vocabulary by leaps and bounds and taking every single chance we can to grill outside when the weather is nice (hugs to you, Spring).

I realize my posts have been infrequent and I apologize. But I have been super busy busting out (yes I said busting out) designs with some of the fabulous crafty goodness I have been fortunate to get my hands on.

Today I want to share some of the goodness I created featuring Chickaniddy’s Twirly Girly, Date Night and a little bit of Jolly Good. Those names tho’ (I need to ask my sister if I’m using 2015 slang appropriately.)  Chickaniddy’s collection names are just fabulous! Here is what I have designed along with a sneak photo:

A Fanciful Celebration

Today I’m playing along with the latest Runway Inspired Challenge: Zac Posen.


Zac Posen Resort 2014 (from style)

This dress screams luxurious!  This is what I created:


Keeping with the luxurious theme, I used pearlized cover stock for the card base and the flower.  The script like font of the heat embossed sentiment, from Technique Tuesday, really suited this card well.  I added a few reddish gemstones as a nod to the beautiful dress colors.  Take care and thanks for stopping by! xo- Tyra

Solid Gold!

Today, I’m playing along with the latest CAS(E) this sketch


…and CASology: GOLD

Week 54 - Gold


..AND last but not least, the  Birthday Card Challenge in the Moxie Fab World 🙂

I created this party card:


The gold dots are leftover die cuts. I used a leftover scrap of gold paper behind the “celebrate” sentiment.  I think this card is ready for a party! Take care and thanks for stopping by! xo-Tyra

Polka Dot Birthday

Today I’m playing along with the latest Color Throwdown Challenge:

As well as the latest CAS-ual Fridays Challenge:cfc109polkadot

I created a crazy polka dot birthday card, complete with dancing “Happy” letters.


I love CAS-ual Friday’s Shenanigans sentiment set.  The sentiments are some of the larger sentiments I have seen and really stand out!  I tried the ghosting technique seen on some popular inky blogs and I like it. One tip: If you do not get the white outline around all the letters, use a white marker to touch it up.  I used Zig’s writer chalk marker.  The polka dots are leftover circles from die cutting I colored with Copics.  Thanks for stopping by! — xo- Tyra
