Here's what Cassandra created for March:




When I saw that the theme for this month was Polka Dots, I immediately thought of Minnie Mouse!  Hee!  So that was my inspiration for this card.  This is the darling Stamp Anniething ~ Kelly : You're Purrfect.  In her original state, she's dressed up for Halloween, but I changed her up a bit for this card.  I colored her skin and hair with Copic Sketch Markers.  And then I paper pieced her outfit and mouse ears headband.  All of the papers, the balloons and the "magic" sentiment are from the Simple Stories ~  Say Cheese collections.  I cut the blue piece in the background using the Jaded Blossom ~ Stitched Square Dies.  The "believe in the" sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom ~ Easter Treats 2.

Copic Sketch Colors
skin ~ E50, E51, E93
hair ~ E50, Y21, Y26

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Here is what Annie created for March:

I took the super sassy Jessica and put her on a standard A2 card that I matted with the Card Mat Dies.  Again I used the Wine Tag die and Label dies to jazz it up!  A Sentiment Thank You Die finishes it off!

I hope you will play along with us in our Monthly Theme Week! You can see and post all your projects in our Facebook Group HERE

Here's my project for the challenge!

I decided to use James - You're So Hip because, well, he's one of my favorite cuties from Stamp Anniething and he's just too adorable NOT to use, don't you think?

I know it's a Polka Dot challenge, but I thought that, instead of creating polka dots out of his clothes, I would search my stash for some perfect polka dot paper to compliment my card. So I decided to use some beloved Basic Gray paper I've had in my stash for a while! Totally perfect, right?!

Please be sure to check out my blog for more details on how I created this card!

I hope you have a chance to play along with our Polka Dot challenge! Remember you have until April 8th to create something and play along! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Fluffy Bunny

Hello and happy weekend!

Today I'm showing a card I created for my mother. My mother grew up taking care of many animals  she has always had chickens, parrots, pigs, cows and horses among other critters. When I was a young child I remember having rabbits and turtles too. To this day my mom still has lots of chickens and a bunny. She had a very soft white bunny named Capullo (pronounced Kah-poo-yo)
it went under the fence and she never found it again... now she has one that my baby named Henrietta. Henrietta is sort of grayish brown color and my kids love being around her especially my youngest daughter Daenerys. 

I created this card using the stamp Melanie - Need a Hug. I felt this was the perfect image to make a card my mom and color Melanie as my daughter and no she doesn't have purple hair but I'm sure she wouldn't mind that. LOL  

I used Copic markers to color her. 
I came up with this purple hair combo which is one of my favorites to use
V04, V06, V09 and V17
For the bunny I used E70, W0, W1, W3, and a very tiny bit amount of W5.
The paper is from Wild Rose Studio and it's called Blackberry Lane
and I printed the poem on top. 

The poem/song is from a Spanish Gatorade commercial called "Conejito Pelucita" which translates to Fluffy Bunny but I'm not sure who wrote the poem.... It's a really cute though!

Here is a close-up of my coloring and paper piecing.

Thank you for looking.

Have a wonderful day.

Here is a closer look at the Pink Bunny Tag.

Make a Splash Audrina

      Hello Crafty friends,

Katya Bess, here and I'm showing you a card I made with
As I sat here and thought to myself,
 "Hmmm what colors should I use today?"
I have some "go-to" colors but I try not color the same 
all of the time since I like to challenge myself
the only problem is, this method 
takes longer than usual to finish- although very fun
and relaxing it's still time consuming.
So some strategies I have for myself is to choose one
of these: chose realistic colors, go monochromatic, pick
analogous colors (which means colors that are next to each other in the color wheel)
or I go with complimentary colors (colors opposite to each other) 
and sometimes not exactly the opposite but still complimentary
(colors that are analogous to the complimentary color.)
I hope I didn't confuse you. :P

So, since I chose this lime green hair I chose a purpley 
mermaid tail with various pinks... I don't know
I think it goes together okay...  
I was going to go with a bluish or greenish hue
for the skin and then thought we have been 
having blackouts because of the storm here in the Bay Area. LOL  
This is how I also chose my coloring... the weather and upcoming events. 
(haha yea don't laugh)

Alright... too much rambling on my behalf
here is my card...

Audrina - Make a Splash  was so much fun to color! 
Since it was raining so much all I could think about was 
WATER and I chose to color a little mermaid for you all. :)

I chose Copic BG01 for the water making sure
that I gave it at least 3 coats- that is very important so it doesn't look
too streaky and doesn't really matter if it doesn't look
completely the same color since some areas will touch and 
it will have more that 3 coats, it is under water after all and 
water is constantly in motion and reflects lights and shadows in different directions.

Now for the bubbles you wants to use a much lighter color
I chose Copic B000, this sort of bleaches some of the color out
but not completely... just draw some random circles and fill them in
and they don't have to be perfect
in fact, making them a little more wonky will make them somewhat realistic.
Lastly where ever your light source is coming from you want to use
the Copic Blender (Copic 0) and highlight and finalize that water bubble look - 
I chose my light to come from the left and 
I don't always follow light source since light is tricky but I try.

I hope you get to try it out some day with this cutie. 
Here is a closer look at her and the subtle water bubbles too. :)
I used one of my favorite pens - Sakura Clear Star Gellyroll
to give her some sparkle on her star and the pearls on her hair.
I used Copic Opaque White to highlight her eyes
I don't know why I keep using the brush it comes with 
I made a big glob on her eye and had to make the eye-lights
different than I normally do. LOL   

I usually don't talk this much in person... 
(just in my crazy head. LOL) 

I hope you have a lovely weekend
enjoy it to the max!!! 

Thanks for stopping by,

Howdy

Hi everyone! This is GiGi from The Cricut Bug and I have a fun card to share. 
I used the Savannah-Howdy Partner stamp set for this card.




I started this card with a standard A2 card base and added the mat in Neenah Dessert Sand cut with the Jaded Blossom Card Mat Dies.
I stamped Savannah directly onto the kraft paper and colored her with Copic markers. The colors are alot different on this type of paper so I had to experiment a little to get this final look.
I used a white gel pen to add all the highlights and outlined her in a light color.
I added some banners to the corner cut with the Flag Dies 2 and used staples on the corners of the card.
To finish, I added the "howdy" sentiment cut with the Alphabet Dies.

I hope you all liked my card for today and thanks for visiting!


Have a great day!

Abigail - Lucky friend

Hello Crafty Friends,

Katya Bess here with a little card I made using Abigail - Glad We're Friends.

I wanted to create a scene expressing the little sentiment on the card 
and also a theme for the month of March.
Abigail looks so cute with her pigtails sitting on the "floor" so I decided 
to sit her out in a field of grass and flowers. 
I stamped her first, then I masked her with "stamping mask paper"
from Inkadinkado. It's simple and much cleaner than with masking fluid, 
after that I stamped the background, lastly I colored her up.
Then I realized I wanted to draw a little four leaf clover on the grass.
Very easy to create a full scene. 

I chose a contrasting color to the grass like a red shirt and a red layer
but it doesn't look Christmasy.


Here is a close-up of Abigail - Glad We're Friends
the background and the little four leaf clover I hand-drew.
There are a few more details on my blog.

I hope you liked it
and I hope you have a fabulous weekend.

A Smile from a Fairy

Hello Everyone! Melissa from Doxie Mel Designs with a new post.  For my card today, I colored one of the stamps from the last release, Kelsey - Believe.  Kelsey is colored with Copic Markers.  The "smile" is a new die from Little Yellow Bicycle that I purchased at Hobby Lobby.  I layered a few of them for a little more depth. Well, to be honest, I thought purple first but it looked a little washed out. I liked leaving a hint of the purple behind the teal blue paper. ;)  To finish the card off, sequins! All fairies love the sparkle of sequins.

dies - (word die) Little Yellow Bicycle, Lawn Fawn

Hello everyone! This is Cassandra from Creating with Color by Cassandra.  And today I went a little clean and simple.


This is a little "head shot" of the Stamp Anniething ~ Julie : Enjoy the Ride.  Doesn't she look cute peeking out there?  I colored her in with Copic Sketch Markers.  I cut the background with the Jaded Blossom ~ Card Mat Dies.  And I used the Jaded Blossom ~ Stitched Square Dies to cut the little peek-a-boo window. 

Copic Sketch Colors
R81, R89
T0, T1, T2, T3, T5, T7, T9

Well my creative friends, that's it for me today.  I will see you all again soon.  Have a great day everyone!

Springtime


Hi everyone!

JoAnn from JoBoogie Stamping here with a new card to share with you using the new Danielle - Springtime stamp from Stamp Anniething!


I'm really loving teals and blues for spring so I decided to color her up in my favorite colors of the moment, not forgetting to color that cute little ladybug on her shirt red, of course! I used some Spring-themed patterned paper in my stash as well to complete my card. 

I really love how it turned out! It really turned out to be a great birthday card.
