Some Bunny Loves You

How about some Easter/Spring themed sillyness?  The Cat’s Pajamas has some fun new Digital Images out that are perfect for some fun.  This one is called Bunny Kitty, and our favourite Sprinkles is hiding in the flower patch trying to blend in for the season with some cute bunny ears.  He just wants to tell you he loves you :)  

Just a bit of Copic colouring on the flowers, ears and tie.  I wanted the image to match more to the patterned paper, (Echo Park Coffee and Friends)so I drew in some leaves tucked into the flowers, and it really ties them together nicely.   I added some sewing, and added the TCP Grass Die to ground the image.  

A perfectly peach grosgrain bow adds a bit of pretty detail.  

Copics I used are shown above.  

Don’t forget about the TCP Progressive Sale going on!  Its such a great time to get all the goodies you’ve been waiting for and March means 20% off your price tag!  

We’re down to our last 2 weeks of the TCP Tuesday Challenge, this month we invite you to help us close this Challenge down with your floral designs!  So perfect for Spring creating.  Link your creation here:  TCP Tuesday Floral Challenge and you are in the running for a $50 TCP Gift Code!

Party Pups and Presents with MFT


Do you ever just colour up a bunch of images and pull them out later for a card? I’ve had this coloured image in my stash for so long!  I finally pulled it out for the MFT Sketch this week.  Its using MFT’s Pawty Time Stamp set and a fun pairing of sage/minty green and peach.   I’m working on building my Birthday Card stash.  

Speaking of stashes, I used some older patterned paper in my collection from My Mind’s Eye - On Trend.

I stamped the streamers from MFT’s set Sending Sweet Celebration Wishes in Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide ink to add a subtle background print.  

Some iridescent sequins pick up some of the green and peach from the design, and the scalloped circle die makes a great frame for the image to work with the Sketch.  A Baker’s Twine bow mimics the bow on the present to also tie it together.  

Here’s a peek at the markers I used.

Rachelle Anne Miller’s Baby Giraffe


It’s always so fun to make a baby card isn’t it?  Today’s design is a precious one using Rachelle Anne Miller’s Giraffe and Bird Digital Stamp.  It has such charm and whimsy.  And her style really plays off of a light and airy theme.  For this design I took my colour cues from some Echo Park Hello Baby, It’s a Boy patterned paper.  

Simple touches like a ric rack ribbon die and stitched grosgrain accent.  The sentiment is from an older Stampin’ Up Set I had in my stash.  I thought the font was especially sweet and kept with the illustration theme.  

Ready for the next baby who comes along!  

Here’s a peek a the Copics I used below.  

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great day ahead.

MFT Cake Party for a Tween!

Today I’m bringing you a sweet celebration card that I created for my niece’s 12th Birthday.  She loves to cook and bake, and we actually got a cake decorating themed gift for her as a present, so it was fun to pair the gift with this stamp set from MFT called Pawty Time.  These cute critters and that gigantic decorated Birthday Cake were a sweet match.  

All the images are coloured up with Copics and I loosely interpreted MFT’s Sketch for the design.  I added an extra row of banners from another Stacey Yacula set from MFT called Sweet Celebration, to mimic the sketch.  

The fun paper adds to the feeling of celebration.  

Here are the Copics I used below.  

Thanks for stopping in friends!

Hello Hearts Abloom


Hello to you out there too :)  I’m here for some Power Poppy fun on Friday with this beautiful digital image Marcy illustrated called Heart Abloom .  I just love how the beautiful early spring flowers are arranged in the heart shape, over-laying the beautiful banner.  I coloured the image with Copics and Prismacolor pencils for a really nice sense of colour and definition.  It’s full of daffodlis, narcissis, lenten roses, trout lilies, hellebore and ripening blueberries.  A dreamy arrangment.  

That pop of blue from the ripening blueberries really informed the textured background paper, but to tie it in to the greens in the image, I used a stencil and Distress Oxide Ink and a blending brush to add it to the paper.  The Distress Oxide ink is perfect for the cardstock because it sits on top of the paper instead of soaking in and you get that beautiful chalky colour.  

Hoping your day is as vibrant and joyful, and full of promise as this bundle of blooms!

Barbara also has a beauty to show you today so be sure to pop on over!

Lemons and Rest Watercolour Wreath


Hello!  If you follow me on Instagram (ChristineCreationsArt) you’ll have heard that I’m working through a project this season called the #100DayProject, where you pick some type of art that you’d like to work on for a period of 100 days.  I decided to work on some freehand watercolour wreaths.  So, today’s design is one I painted last week and then put a pretty Bible verse on it to complete a card.  

Lemons are such a cheerful fruit!  I painted these with Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolours on Arches Cold Pressed Watercolour paper.  

The lovely verse is from Stamp Simply’s set Hope.  It’s full of lovely Scripture around the hope theme.  

To complete the design I added some tiny check gingham paper and a bit of baker’s twine.  Such a lovely invitation to find rest.
