Celebrate Joyfully!


Happy Friday, one and all! Hope you’ve had a great week. Mine’s been productive – and for me, that means a good week! I have one more week now before a HUGE deadline on a massive project, so I’m glad to have a lot checked off this week so I can focus!

My card for today has been waiting a while on the whiteboard…I keep a big list of ideas to make videos, and this one’s been waiting in line for a while! In the video you’ll get to see the coloring – but I’m mostly just chatting about other subjects, so please don’t skip the video if you’re not a colorer! 🙂 If you can’t see the video below, click HERE to watch it on YouTube.

I haven’t got a clue what to call this card fold. I’ll happily accept ideas, and swap out the YT video title — I can’t come up with anything clever!Sandy Allnock - Tiddly Inks Card2

And since I asked over on YouTube, I’ll ask here too – what do you blog subscribers subscribe for? Copic? Other card ideas? Nonsense? I’m considering some revamping of stuff later this fall, and figured I’d ask for some input!

  1. First of all, you would be a delightful person to be around~ 🙂 This card is darling~ Sandy, I’d like anything on videos from organization, products, cards, copics, different ways of making cards….like you did here, folds, etc., etc. I know it will be good~

  2. What an incredibly beautifully colored card! Love your colic coloring!

  3. I enjoy it all in your videos. You make it all so interesting that I want to come back for some more. Love your card (and video) and how you added the flowers to cover up a mistake. TFS

  4. Basically, I subscribe because you are so entertaining on every level – even beyond the talent and imagination you share with us.

  5. I love your coloring,card ideas,humor,love of the Lord,energy,smarts…..gee,everything!

  6. Wow are you ever talented! I love watching you color with comics and almost love your talking through it all too.

  7. I learn so much from your videos and get a lot of inspiration from your cards. You are so full of energy, it is contagious. I am not a Copic colorer, though I have purchased a few markers. So I learn a lot from your Copic videos. I enjoy all you do, from the crazy to the good design!!

  8. I watch you and subscribe for all the reasons you mention. I love your upbeat humor and attitude. There is so much negativity on the internet – you are a breath of fresh air! I have learned so much and continue to do so. I bought a set of Copic markers, because I love what you do with them and hope to be as good as you someday. How about the “scoop” cut?

  9. Love watching anything you do. I bought that die, put it away and forgot all about it, then along comes Sandy and shows me exactly what I could do with it. Thanks so much.

  10. Love ur utube video’s

  11. I absolutely love watching you color…the image just comes alive! I subscribe to Your You Tube just because I love watching you do what you do so well, I figure if I watch the coloring I might learn something. Seeing you make cards is inspiring to me and of course your silly videos crack me up.

  12. I love the different card ideas and how to do them. Don’t have the air brush system…yet. Would love to see more colored pencils and water color how to’s.

  13. Oh what an adorable “smile” card! Love your coloring!!! Great design!

  14. I am not a subscriber, but have you saved to favorites…really old school, I guess. I check your blog almost every day. But I first came to your blog because of copic coloring. I really appreciate the tutorials you give.

  15. You are absolutely BRILLIANT! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us.

  16. Sandy, I learn so much from every email / video that you publish. You are truly an inspiration. Your joyful attitude and positive energy radiates and is infectious. I have no idea of what I would like to see more of. I know that does not help you, and for that I am sorry because you certainly motivate me. I wish I could do the same!

    This card is the CUTEST card! I love this little girl! BTW…the hair color on that little sweetie reminds me of the two of us…both redheads!

  17. I signed up for card ideas and your silliness!

  18. I am a new subscriber and love getting inspired by your creations. I don’t own any copics. I have dye markers and dye inks. I am trying to teach myself to water color with those. So it helps to see how people do shading with copics and I can try to carry the idea thru to water coloring. Having said that, I would love to see videos with a variety of techniques.

  19. Completely adorable…little bloop fix and all. How about calling it “Opening on the Curve”.

  20. Okay so why do I follow your blog and watch your videos? For ALL of the reasons you mentioned. Your coloring is fantastic and I’m learning so much. I so appreciate your instructions on card making. Now your wit, amazing. I totally enjoy listening to what you have to say. You’re so down to earth. Today’s card is great. Love how you turned an “oh no” into an “oh yes” moment. I probably would have just trashed the card if the tape ruined it for me, so watching this makes me appreciate what you do even more. Thanks for doing what you do so well.

  21. I love it all!
    Variety is good ~ I like seeing what is interesting to you

    Such a CUTE card! Love how her shoes hang over flap
    so that she is standing on the grass

  22. This would be a good easel card…put a handmade easel on the backside….

  23. What a great card!! Loved the coloring on the little girl. I know this won’t help, but I love whatever you do on YT. What about calling the Curvacious (sp) cut card? Thank you for all you do.

  24. You are truly an amazing artist and I consider myself a just a crafter but I learn so much from your blog and videos. I finally made the plunge and bought a set of Copics after watching you use them and you announced a sale on them at Simon Says. I love that you love the Lord, that you had the courage to give up a job to follow your dreams, that you have such a positive, fun loving attitude that encourages me. You have way more creative ideas than I could ever imagine so that is why I follow you. Just keep doing what you are doing and I’ll keep watching

  25. I first found your blog when you did the tour at Hero Arts. I subscribed because of the wonderful copic videos you do.

  26. Adorable card. I like a variety of topics on your videos.

  27. I don’t comment often, but I read every post. I come because you are so REAL, and I enjoy everything from your creative endeavors to your wonderful kind heart. Oh, and then there’s that warm and fuzzy sense of humor! Yeah, that too! Hugs…

  28. Cute card. Good way to cover up mistakes, I always need to cover them up so I like your idea.

  29. Dear Sandy,
    I love how the card turns out! I love the curved flap…

  30. More ideas. And I love your sense of humor in your cards and your chat

  31. I would love to see ideas on interesting folds, unique cuts, etc,
