C.C. Designs Carrot Love!

Howtowhatnot
Welcome to our next installment of How To’s & What Not’s. Each week one of our DT Members creates a post with a how-to tutorial or a what not tip on the C.C. Designs Blog.

Today I'm sharing a tutorial on how I colored the fur on this cute guy called Carrot Love! I just think he's the cutest bunny ever and he's available in the C.C. Design's Store HERE. The sentiment is from AmyR Hopped Up Sentiment Set.

2015-03-06 Carrot Love (full view)
Copics:
Bunny: E41, E42, E43, E44, N0, N2, Blender/ Carrot: YR04, YR07, YR09, G21, G24

First, I covered my image with my lightest color, E41.
2015-03-30 Step 2
Next, I added some shading with E42 and E43.
2015-03-30 Step 3
Then I came in with my darkest color E44 and started adding little small flicks.
2015-03-30 Step 6
To get a better blend, I started adding dots with E43 close to the darker flicks.
2015-03-30 Step 7
Then, I came back in with E42 and E41 and added more dots in the lighter areas.
2015-03-30 Step 8
Finally I added dots with my Colorless Blender to pick up some of the ink. I let it dry and if I needed more color I came back in adding more dots with E41 and E42.
2015-03-30 Step 9
And here's my image all colored up. :)
2015-03-30 Step 10
 
Have an awesome Monday!

Happy Sunday everyone! I'm back to share my card featuring this cute and adorable girl from the Dollhouse Premiere Collection called It's A Celebration.

Do you see the cute corner die? Well it's not really a corner die.

Then below the ribbon I used the Little Darlings Dewdrop Border Die. I'm loving these dies from Little Darlings!! They are awesome!! The dps are from Amy Tangerine. The flowers are from I Am Roses. The pearls, butterfly and ribbon were in my stash.

By DIEzyne Dies NEW RELEASE at C.C. Designs!!

 It's finally here!  The second release from By DIEzyne Dies. We are celebrating this weekend on Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook Group and C.C. Designs Facebook Group.
We are kicking everything off with a really big blog hop!
We have the C.C. Designs DT sharing their creativity with the new By DIEzyne Dies. You can find By DIEzyne Dies by clicking HERE.

For my card today I used C.C. Designs Swiss Pixie Angel Wings. She's one of my favorite stamps! I just think she's so beautiful. She's colored with Spectrum Noir Markers.

 Spectrum Noir Markers:
Skin: FS1, FS2, FS3, TN3
Teal Blue Dress: BT2, BT4, BT5
Red Hearts: DR3, DR6, DR7
Wings: IG1, IG3, Blender

I used several of the By DIEzyne Dies on my 5x7 card: Big Stitched and Pierced Rectangles, Double Circles, Stitched Flags Two, Dotted Wings and Puffy Things, and Stitched Circles. I LOVE these dies!! They are so easy to use and the cuts are clean. I kept the Big Stitched and Pierced Rectangles together and ran them through the Cuttlebug to get several nested frames before I cut them apart and that was the inspiration for this card!! The dps behind the ovals each have a white rectangle frame around them. The sentiment from the AmyR Elegant Valentine Set is cut out using Stitched Flags Two. And that awesome butterfly is from Dotted Wings and Puffy Things (my FAVE)!!

Little Miss Muffet Stamp~Spencer Loves Cake!

Little Miss Muffet Stamps
TGIF everyone! Hope you had an awesome week so far! This week was a rough one for us with some unexpected news of changes to the hubby's job. We could definitely use lots of prayer on this huge upcoming change. I don't handle change very well and this one is a big one. I know we'll get through it as a family, but it's going to be a challenge in the beginning.

Today I decided to make a boy birthday card. I've been making lots of girly cards lately that I needed to change things up a bit. Plus I wanted to used this super cute bear called Spencer Loves Cake! Isn't he the cutest thing ever?! He's stamped on Spectrum Noir Premium White Cardstock and colored with Spectrum Noir Markers.
 
 Spectrum Noir Markers:
Bear: EB3, GB10, GB9, GB8
Eye area: EB2, GB8, GB9
Ears: FS6, FS7, FS8
Blue: TB3, TB4, TB5, TB6
Orange: OR2, OR3, CR11
Cupcake: EB3, EB5, EB7/CG3, CG4, DG3/DR3/
CT1, CT4, GB4, GB6/FL2, GB6, CT4

I decided to try my hand at a CAS style of card....that means Clean and Simple. These are hard for me because I want to keep adding stuff, haha! I used the Crafter's Companion 6x6 Petite Dot Embossing Folder for the white cardstock panel. The "celebrate" sentiment is from Make It Crafty Doodle Celebrate Wood Chipboard set. I used a blue sharpie to color the sentiment. I kept wanting to add something in the corners or some ribbon, but I stuck to my guns, haha!

Don't forget, you still have 4 more days to enter our ANYTHING GOES Challenge on the LMMS Challenge Blog. I hope to see you all participating! Also, be sure to check out the LMMS STORE to get some amazing stamps! There are lots of new goodies in the store!!

My dps are from Close To My Heart-Lucy 12x12 Paper.


The wooden LOVE was originally red so I layered a bunch of pink acrylic paint on top and then covered it with some Martha Stewart loose glitter.


I used EK Success Mason Jar Love Stickers for the jar, and then added R43-00 Mixed Pink Color Paper Roses and L20-151 White Paper Rose Leaves.

The flowers in the corner of the frame are:

Now, don't forget to come play along with us on the IAR Challenge Blog!! You have until APRIL 8th, so if you place an order soon in the IAR STORE you could get your flowers before this challenge ends!!
