C.C. Designs MARCH Release NOW Available!

The MARCH RELEASE is now available for purchase!! Be sure to head over to the C.C. Designs Store to pick up yours today. You definitely don't want to miss out on the awesome stamps and fabulous new BOW Die. 
 
 
I knew when I saw the APRIL & MAY Clear Stamp Set that I wanted to try my hand again at the Rain Shaker Card Tutorial by Laura Dovalo. I'm still trying to figure some things out to keep it from snagging on the paper. I think this time, my foam tape was too thin. Hopefully, the 3rd time is the charm, LOL! 
 
 Copics:
Bear: E41, E42, E43, E44
Blue: B93, B95, B97, B99
Red: R24, R27, R29, R39
Duck: Y15, Y17, YR21, YR23, YR24
Duck Bill: YR04, YR07, YR09, E19
Pink: RV02, RV04, RV06, RV09 


 I used paper from the C.C. Designs Hearts and Dots Paper Pad. I rubbed some DI ink over the top to darken the white dots. Next I die-cut the cloud and grassy border with the C.C. Designs Cloud and Grass Die. The pointy part of the grass was causing issues with the beads falling down behind the green cardstock so I had to trim off the pointy grass edge.
 
  
Be sure to head over to the C.C. Designs Store and grab your favorites before they sell out! If my card inspires you to make a purchase, please click on the Store link in this post or use my affiliate code at checkout: ROSEB46
 
Thank you bunches and have an awesome day!

Make it Crafty: Livana Love Letter

 
Happy Friday everyone! My card today features this adorable gal from Make it Crafty called Livana Love Letter. I love the images from the MiC Store! They have a huge variety so you can find something for pretty much any occasion, and they are so much fun to color!

I tried to do a card that was somewhat Clean and Simple by adding Heart Splatters from Your Next Stamp and a cute sentiment from Mama Elephant Oh Happy Birds. The panel underneath the girl is just ribbon on top of black cardstock.
 
 
To finish it off, I added black rhinestone bling to the corners and raised Livana on foam tape.
 
 
Don't forget to check out the amazing Coloring Tutorials on the Make it Crafty website. These classes are very affordable and provide so much step-by-step instruction that you will be coloring like a pro in no time. 
 
Zoe also started a site called The Coloring Lab. There is a FREE class on the site now that is fantastic for beginners, but also a great refresher for those who are advanced.

C.C. Designs: MONKEYS!

Happy Friday everyone! Today, I'm showcasing a card for C.C. Designs featuring one of my fave sets from the C.C. Designs February Release.....MONKEYS!! I also used awesome paper from both of the new paper pads. The paper pads are 6"x6" and have 16 designs with 2 sheets of each design.
 
 
Aren't these monkey adorable? They seriously make me smile! To put this card together, I first put the green Hearts and Dots Paper on my white card base. Then I glued the patterned paper from Razzle Dazzle Paper Pad to some green cardstock, and die cut a circle out of the center. I placed foam tape under that panel and placed it on top of the green Hearts and Dots Paper.
 
 
 I die-cut some leaves from a Waffle Flower die set and placed them around the cut-out circle on foam tape for even more dimension. I love how the monkeys look like they are jumping out of the frame. This card was so much fun!


  Head over to the C.C. Designs Store and grab your favorites. Please click on my links or use code ROSEB46 at checkout! Don't forget to check out the Monthly Challenges and Tutorials sections of the Store too.

C.C. Designs: SPRING THINGS

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today, I'm showcasing a card for C.C. Designs featuring SPRING THINGS. It's one of the new stamps recently release as part of the C.C. Designs February Release.
 
In addition to new stamps, they also released a new Cloud and Grass Border Die, 2 new paper pads, and 2 sets of coordinating enamel dots. The paper pads are 6"x6" and have 16 designs with 2 sheets of each design. The shiny dots have the color throughout the entire dot, while the clear dots have the color in the base, but the dome is clear (almost like a mirror effect).
 
I used lots of goodies to create this card including the Cloud and Grass Border die to cut the grass for the center panel. The In and Out Circle Metal Die was used to cut out the white scallop frame. The blue heart paper and green polka dot paper are from the new Hearts and Dots Paper Pad.
 
  
I framed the circles with some beautiful I Am Roses Flowers and also included a pink bow.

Lee Holland Art: Teddy with Heart Balloon

Happy Thursday and Valentine's Day everyone! I hope you have an amazing day! Since it's Valentine's Day, I had to make a card celebrating LOVE. I'm also celebrating today because it's my first post as a Design Team Member for Lee Holland Art! I love his digital stamps!!

My card features an adorable bear from Lee Holland Art called Teddy with Heart Balloon. This cute bear is part of a LOVE BUNDLE in Lee Holland's Etsy Store at a special price! You get 8 images for only $6.68. And you can get a 10% coupon code by signing up for the Lee Holland mailing list here: https://www.leescutecreations.com.

I decided to go a nontraditional route with this cute bear by coloring the bear pink and adding a plaid design to the nose, stomach and bottom of the foot. For the background, I created a bokeh effect using Copic Markers. I just added dots in the colors listed below around the image. Then I dipped a Q-tip into Colorless Blender Solution and pressed the Q-tip onto the paper in a random pattern.
 Copics:
Pink: RV02, RV04, RV06, RV09
Plaid: BG13, BG75, YG23, G28, RV04
Bokeh Effect: BG10, BG13, BG15, BV02, R83, Colorless Blender 

I used some decorative paper in my stash. To finish it off, I added beautiful flowers from I Am Roses. I think they really frame the image well, and are the perfect embellishment to this bear image.
Be sure to head to the Lee Holland Etsy Store and check out all the awesome digis! You're going to LOVE them!!

Have an awesome day!
Rosie
