Make It Crafty AND Tiddly Inks "Unlock The Secrets" Joint Blog Hop!!!






How cool is this??!!! After months of preparation Christy from Tiddly Inks and Zoe from Make It Crafty are ready to share with you this amazing release! 

Not only do we have some AWESOME new images to showcase for you today from both of these spectacular ladies, we have a hieroglyphic "SERCRET" code too, so as you hop along check for a set of hieroglyphic symbols that spell out a secret saying....  

To keep this hop simple, we are going to be hopping from the main post HERE and not linking from blog to blog. To make this work, we suggest you open a new window for each link (click CNTRL and the link you wish to visit), which will open the next blog and keep the main post up too...that simple. This way, you can easily navigate between each blog in the hop and return to the main page when you are ready to go to the next blog.


Here are my cards...




This card includes the Make It Crafty "Desert Oasis" image, which you can find at the Make It Crafty Store and the very cute Tiddly Inks "Cleo Hand Maiden" which you can find HERE at the Tiddly Inks Store.

I started off this card by printing out the Desert Oasis and Cleo on white card stock and then colouring both in with my Prismacolor pencils, all except for Cleo's dress which I paper pieced. The strips of scrap papers I have used on the card are from MME's {don't ask me which because I think they are all mixed up lol!}.  



This card was really simple to put together. I cut Cleo out and then placed her on the Desert Oasis background image and then basically just fiddled with the card until I was happy with the end result.


For my second card I chose to do a C&S card using the very gorgeous Tiddly Inks image of Cleopatra on Chaise, which you can find HERE at the Tiddly Inks Store




I really loved doing the C&S style and it's something different for me!! I started off by printing out Cleopatra on white card stock, coloured her in with my Prismacolor pencils and then using some strips of papers from MME's Indie Chic "Nutmeg" 6x6 paper pad, finished the card off....



Now that you have seen my cards off you go back the the main post HERE and checkout all the other AMAZING creations that the Make It Crafty and Tiddly Inks DT's have in store for you!!



 Oops!....Oh yeah... Don't forget this!!!
