Practicing Creativity

Congrats on Your New Place card, featuring Tiddly Inks Thankful Heart freebie

New Home card featuring Tiddly Inks Thankful Heart freebie, by Paperesse.

My niece moved into her first all-to-herself apartment recently. She's shared with roommates in college, but this is the first all her own. This is definitely a card worthy event in Auntie's book.

This super cute Thankful Heart digital image is a free coloring page/stamp from Tiddly Inks. I had every intention of coloring it, but the more I looked at it I thought it was just so pretty on its own it didn't really need coloring. I decided to just highlight the yellow flower centers.

The retired paper is from Authentique. The yellow and black papers from this pack really are stunning (you can see more of the same on this Happy Bird-Day vintage theme card). Embellishments are pom-pom ribbon and a little bee. I used Dancing Script font for the sentiment.

Paper – cardstock, Authentique paper pack
Digital stamp – Tiddly Inks Thankful Heart digital image freebie

  2. Oh, Shani, this is so lovely! I adore the concept and the papers are gorgeous. What a wonderful piece of art for your niece to display in her new home.

  3. Que lindura Shani!!! It's so cute!!! J'adore ce combo de couleurs! Et c'est vraiment excellent comme tu as utilisé l'image en noir et blanc... Le détail de l'abeille est magnifique, j'aime tout!!! Ta nièce sera très contente!!

  4. This is so beautiful!! The image is really sweet and I think it does look fabulous not colored. Great idea! Thanks for playing with Di's Digi Designs.

  5. The highlighted flowers are perfect with the black/white/yellow paper. Pretty card! Best wishes to your niece on her new place.

  6. Really like your choice to use a spotlight technique with this image! The background DP and the bee could not be more perfect with this. The pom-pom ribbon is so celebratory, your niece is going to love it!

  7. A beautiful gift, i'm sure it has made your Niece feel right at Home. Love your accent of yellow you are so right to say it did not need anything other than a highlight of colour, this could be done in so many variants. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us over at That's Crafty.
    Best Wishes Tracey DT
