Tiddly Inks Tuesday - Clean and Simple

Good morning everyone, Happy 2014!  After a wonderful holiday break we are back at Tiddly Inks with a new challenge for all of you.  Our first challenge for 2014 is Clean and Simple.  Some of you are probably raring to go while others are cringing at the thought of leaving some of those embellishments behind for this one.  I feel your pain, I do, I have evolved from the Clean and Simple card maker to a girl who likes a little bling myself.  Take heart, you can do it, I have faith in you creating the most stunning cards using Christys fabulous Tiddly Inks images!

For me I went with a boy image, My Super Boy.  I always find it easier to create CAS cards with boy images as boys don't usually go for all that bling anyway.  This card is going to be saved for my nephew's birthday on March first.  His name is Logan, which is why I added an L to the little guy's shirt.  He has a daddy(my brother) who likes superheroes and dad has immersed him in all things superhero.  Besides, I already have my brother's card as well which is Christy's other cute superhero image, My Batty Hero.

Now, I am not 100% happy with the look of this card.  Hubby got me a nice new little sewing machine for Christmas that I want to use for my cards only.  I love how sewing on cards looks and I've been wanting to give it a try, but not with my machine that I use for fabric.  Well, it's a lot easier to sew a hidden seam than one that you will see, hence the crooked lines.  I have a little practice to do on this one, including on working on matching my thread to my cards.

Materials Used:
Copic Markers
Unity KOM Sentiment
Prima Embellishements
SU Circle and Scalloped circle punch

If you are still stressing about creating a CAS card then I know where you can get a little more inspiration, and that is from the rest of the Tiddly Inks team of course.  Those ladies are always spot on with their creations and you will enjoy what you see when you take time to stop by the challenge blog to check them out.  Me, I am back to reality after a two week vacation and off to work, yuck.  I love my job but in the winter it is much more cozy and fun to stay inside and play with all of my crafting tools and toys!

Have a great Tuesday everyone!
Thanks so much for stopping by,
