Welcome to our Treasure Hunt

Welcome to the Tiddly Inks Treasure Hunt bloghop. We are kicking off Tiddly Ink’s first birthday celebration and I am so glad you joined us to hunt for inspiration and goodies. 
If you came from Kiara's blog then you are at the correct spot. If not, you might want to go back to the CHALLENGE BLOG and start hopping THERE. You might miss some of the prizes that are hidden around the hop if you don’t start at the beginning. :) 
My creation today features Tiddly Inks’s new image Party Time.   Christy created about 20 new images for her birthday celebration and you can find the rest of the images HERE.

As soon as I saw these delightful Pixies I knew that my creation for the blog hop had to be made with them.
I have done a few firsts with this card.
This my first creation using Party Time, my first stepper card, my first bit of paper piecing (on the flags) and my first time as a guest designer for Tiddly Inks. 

I started out by printing my pixies.  The pixies are coloured with copic's and have some glamour dust on their wings for some special pixie sparkle.
The roses on the pennant are coloured with pink sakura stardust pen and the leaves with sakura souffle pen.  I then added the word Hello to the pennants in adobe elements and printed the whole stamp first onto pink floral paper and then onto green cross-hatched paper.  These were then cut out and stuck on.  The final bit of work on the pixies was to add a bit of white highlights and to  fussy cut them out.

I then made the stepper card to exactly fit the pixies across it.  Once I knew the measurements for the middle step I bought Hilly Lane digi stamp from Make it Crafty and used the same shades subtle to colour it in.
Finally I covered the front of the card in blue gemstone cardstock and began assembling everything.
The flowers are punched from the pink PP used for the pennant and a darker pink and the green leaves are the same paper from the banner.
The sentiment was then printed, mounted onto the pink PP and attached to the front.

As a special thank you, I am offering a prize of the beautiful Party Timedigi stamp.
 Please leave me a comment telling me who is your favourite digi stamp from the new birthday release to get entered to win Pennant Pixie from Christy.
You don't have to a follower of my blog t enter into the draw, but it would be nice if you did.
Just a little reminder that Tiddly Inks will be having a sale May 1-3 to celebrate it’s first birthday. If you are interested, visit the SHOP and then plan to create a fun project for the challenges or the next blog hop on May 10.
On May 10, Tiddly Inks will hold another blog hop that is open to everyone. You can check out the details on Christy’s Blog . It will be part of TI’s fun birthday party celebration and the special prize for the that blog hop will be a chance to win a digital stamp customized and designed for you.
Thanks so much for hopping in our Treasure Hunt. I hope you enjoyed seeing a lot of new images, some beautiful cards and visiting with our special guests and regular designers.
