Hello Bluebird Elephant Friends....

Happy Wednesday!! 
I am stopping by today to share a set of cards I created using the
cutest stamps from a brand new to me company Hello Bluebird. 

From the moment I saw the images I knew they would be super 
fun to color and create with. 

For my cards, I used the Elephant Friends, Sprig Script, and Gallery Frame Dies.


I began by creating the day and night scenes that would be the background. 
I used Distress Inks in the colors Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire. I also used 
Broken China Distress Oxide ink. I added a bit of Memento Danube Blue to the nighttime scene as well. 


I then colored the super cute elephants. 
I used mostly the same colors for both scenes. 
For the night scene, I made the elephants a bit darker.



I used Copic markers in the colors C7, C5, W5, W3, C1, and C0. For the ears and cheeks, I used 
E93 and R000. 


For the bunnies and duckies, I did the same thing I added a bit more of the darker colors to the night scene ones. 


I used E50,51, 31, 35, 55, 37 and 47 for the bunnies. 
For the ducklings, I used E50, YR23, Y19, and YR21.





These were lots of fun to color! 
I hope you enjoy and feel inspired to create! 
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by! 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day!

Celebrate This Special Day with Altenew...


Hello everyone!! 
Happy Tuesday! 
I am so happy to be stopping by to share this card I created. 
I have always loved watercolor, especially watercolored 
flowers! They are absolutely beautiful! 
I enjoy practicing and know I have a lot to learn and
believe me I admire the beauty the watercolor artists create. 
With that in mind, I pulled my Winsor&Newton  watercolors out and decided to practice with
the beautiful flowers from Altenews Magnolias For Her stamp set. 


I began by stamping my image onto Arches 140LB Cold Pressed watercolor paper.
I used Antique Linen Distress Ink. 



I then began to watercolor using my Winsor &Newton colors. 
It is such a relaxing process, it does take time( for me it does, lol). 






I hope you enjoy and feel inspired to create!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by! 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day!!

Easter Picnic with Neat & Tangled.....

Hello everyone! 
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 
I am stopping by today to share this fun set I created for 
the Neat& Tangled Throwdown Challenge. 
As you know I adore Neat& Tangled stamps and love creating party decorations.
They are hosting an awesome challenge: 


Party ensemble challenge!!! I could not wait to create something for this challenge 
the second I saw it( which was last week...where have I been, lol). 

I knew I would be creating something Easter/Spring themed. I began by choosing the color 
combination which turned out to be a non-traditional Easter combo. Blue and Orange.
I love these colors together, not just because we are Chicago Bear fans, lol.  
 It also goes perfectly with my husband and sons favorite flavors for me to bake with: 
Blueberries. They love anything blueberry related and it does not last in my house, lol! 
I love these colors together, not just because we are Chicago Bear fans, lol.  


I began with the adorable Cottontail Cuties stamp set. 
I adore the entire set, but I knew that the bunny would be the main image 
I would be using to create my decor. 


I added the bow from the Eggstra Special set,
to dress up the bunnies. 


I also added a bit of the floral images from the Friendly Florals stamp set. 


I went for an Easter Picnic theme. 


I added mini blueberry pies to each of the small picnic baskets. 





 To create the little banner for the paper straws I used the Neat & Tangled Scalloped Dies set. 






To color, the images in I used my Copic markers. 
For the blues, I used B28,24, 21, 0000. 
The greens G94, YG17, and G20. 
For the orange, I used YR07, 04 and E93.
The bunnies were colored using W5, W3, and E41 with a bit of E93.

I hope you enjoy what I created to share with you 
today and feel inspired to create! 
Thank you so much for stopping by! 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day!
