Bunny & Butterfly

I just love this stamp by KLM Designs "Bunny & Butterfly". It is such a sweet image. I am so ready for summer and this image really puts me in the mood to be outdoors and among nature.

I used my spectrum noir markers to color this stamp and create a 6x6 card. The paper is from my stash of Echo Park paper pads.

Flower - CR1, CR3, CR6 and for the leaves CG1, CG2, CG3
Rabbit  - IG2, IG4, IG5
Butterfly - OR2, OR3

This was a very fun card to create.

Honor Our Heroes!

Please remember to honor all the medical personnel who are on the front lines taking care of all of us. These stamps "Heroes" are created by Stampers Delights honoring and supporting the doctors, nurses, and all medical people that are truly heroes.

Coloring is such a great way to let go of our worries. I hope that you are taking some time each week to color or to do something creative. I created this card as DT inspiration for Stampers Delights Freebie Progressive Challenge and for A Bit More Time to Craft Challenge.

Please join the April  Freebie Progressive Challenge over at the Stampers Delights Fan Group page. The challenge is very fun. I used to participate  monthly before I became a DT for Stampers Delights. I enjoyed seeing all the great creations.

For this card I created a 6x6 card. I used Hearts Again paper by Lozzie. I wanted to keep the focus of this card on the two images, so I kept the card a bit simpler. I can't say enough about how proud and thankful I am of all the people who are on the front line fighting this virus. I colored these images with my hodgepodge of Spectrum Noir markers.

Kawaii Bunny Love a Stampers Delights stamp - Ever so cute!

I am so thrilled to be part of the Stampers Delights team. I love creating cards and blogging. So what could be better than being part of a design team? This adorable image is Bunny Love by Stampers Delights. I created this card with my mother in mind. I think she will get a kick out of it.

This is a 6x6 card. I used paper that was gifted to me from Sandra V. She generously surprized me one day with a beautiful package of paper. I have made at least 10 cards from her gift, and I have more cards in mind. I colored this card with my Copics. I love alcohol markers. Whatever brand you have they will work fine. The key is to be able to blend to create shading and highlighting.

I used the following Copics:

Coat, hood, and gloves - RV23, RV14, and RV13
Fur and boots - V09, V06, and V05
Heart - Rv04 and RV02
Pants and star - B00 and B02
Hair - E74, E71, and E70
Skin - E11, E01, and E000. I used R20 and R30 for the blush

Rabbit - who I mistakenly thought was a dog dressed up as a rabbit
Fur E15, E13, and E11. I used R20 and R30 on the inside of the ears, as blush, and on his lis.

I did use the sentiment from the digi set. Truly this is a great digi stamp set that is perfect for Easter or anytime of year.

My Facebook page is Creative Paper Crafting with Jacquie. I do lives on Thursday at 7:00 PM EST.  I would love for you to join me on my Facebook page. I hope that you will join me and color along!

Love Monsters by Bugaboo Stamps

This is Jacqueline for the Coffee Beans. I am new to the Lady Beans Design team and am so excited to share my creations with you. I am beyond excited to be on the team!

For this funny Mother's Day card I used Love Monsters by Bugaboo Stamps. Bugaboo creates really adorable images. This year, I wanted to give my mother a fun Mother's Day card and I think this one is just perfect. My mother is from Twickenham, England, so we celebrate Mother's Day twice. We live in the US and our Mother's Day is on May, while in the UK it is in March. Such fun!

I created a 6x6 card using paper from my stash. I matted the floral purple paper with black paper. I typed the sentiment on my computer. I often type my own sentiments. I wanted something funny to go with this stamp. I used a purple button to accentuate the sentiment, which I also matted in black. Buttons can be a fun embellishment to use. To keep the button in place I used fabric glue.

I used my hodgepodge of Spectrum Noir markers to color the monsters. I think that Spectrum Noir ink is very rich and intense. I colored on Copic XPress It paper. The image is printed at 4 inches.

I used the following colors:

Blueish Green Monster - AB1, AB2, LV3, CT1, and CT3
Green Monster - LB1, LB2, LB3, BGR1, and BGR2
Pink Monster - CR4, CR5, CR6, LG2, and LG3
Tan Monster - F6, F7, F8, HB1, and HB2 with a touch of LV1 for the eyes.
Purple Monster - HB1, HB2, HB3, LV1, LG1, and LG2

When I color, I try to think of where my light source is coming from. It makes it easier to shade if you decide how you want the light to shine on your image. I generally start with my lightest shade, move to my medium, and then followed by the darkest shade. I put 2 or 3 layers on as I color. I think the more layers the richer the colors look.

I hope that my mother likes this card. I also want to wish you a very Happy Mother's Day this year.
