Magnolias For Her ..Thank You

Hello and happy Sunday everyone!! 
I am on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink blog today .
I created a card using the beautiful
Magnolias For Her 
stamp set by Altenew . 

I used my Zig Clean Color Brush Pens to color the images in...
YES , I am LOVING this method !!
I am enjoying practicing .
If you would like to see all of the details on this card please feel welcome to visit my post here

I also created another water colored card using the same set .
For this one I changed the colors and design . 
I used the Zig brush markers once again. 

I had so much fun watercoloring these cards ...that I continued with these
images from 
Neat & Tangled . 

I wanted to keep the colors soft . 
I adore the bunny from the Cottontail Cuties set , 
and thought it would be perfect inside the wreath from the 
Floral Heart stamp set . 

I hope you enjoy and feel inspired to create ! 
Thank you very much for stopping by ! 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day !

I will be entering the
Little Tangles 
Challenge #79

CDD April 2017 Release Projects Day 1 ....

Hello and super happy Friday !!! 
Our Craftin Desert Divas 
April 2017 Release 
is now available in the shop !!!
You can find it here

This release is absolutely AMAZING !! 
I adore each of the sets ! 

For the first card I created to share with 
you today , 
I used the Fiesta Time stamp set .

 I began by creating the background . I wanted it to have the appearance of a sarape . 
I was inspired by the bright colors in the new Sweet Pea Sequin Mix
for the colors I would be using. Next step...finding the inks that would match ! 
 I used Simon Says Stamp Hybrid Ink in Teeny Bikini , then I added a layer of Tsukineko Electric Coral , the next stripes I used VersaMagic inks in the colors Persimmon, Mango Madness then Key Lime <3.  I lastly added a couple of stripes using Distress Ink in Black Soot . 

For the second card I created I used Rainbows & Sunshine stamp set .
I went with a triple slider card . 

I heat embossed the images from the set using white embossing powder . 
I then used the same inks that I used for the Fiesta Time card to add color 
to my images . 
For the inside I used the super cute sentiment from the set 
"When others try to rain on your dreams , carry an umbrella and dream on ! " 
ADORE it !! I added the die cut Totally in between . 
This was a super fun card to create ! 

I hope you are loving this release as much as I do !! 
Thank you so much for stopping by !! 
Wishing you a BLESSED day !!

CDD April Sneak Peek Stormy Weather...

Hello everyone !! 
I am back today to share the card I created for the 
Craftin Desert Divas 
April Release sneak peeks
using the adorable 
Stormy Weather stamp set . 

I colored in my image using something 
besides my Copics (lol..I still love my copics ) 
to color in my image !!! 
I had the 12 pack of Zig Clean Water 
Real Brush pens for a while ... a looong while 
if I am being honest , lol ! 
I was excited to get them and could not wait to use them ..
here I am , I believe over a year later and I am now 
understanding the LOVE for these markers !! 

For my little mouse I used the color Pink (25) for the 
raincoat and umbrella . 
I stamped the image onto Archival cold pressed 
140 lb paper using
 Memento Desert Sand Ink. 
 For the actual mouse I used the color Dark Oatmeal (66) .
For the colors I was inspired by the April
Social Media Challenge Mood Board :
 Image may contain: plant and flower

 I thought the image would go perfectly with the brand new Rainbow Dies as well <3. 
 I used Distress Inks to color in the rainbow. I used Picked Raspberry , 
Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar . 

I hope you enjoy this card and feel inspired to create! 
Please feel welcome to join us here for the April Release Event page . 

Thank you so much for stopping by and for all of the amazingly sweet birthday wishes !!

CDD Somebunny Loves You Card and Tags ....

Hello and happy Saturday everyone ! 
Mayra here from Mayras Designs with today's 
post . 

I created this card and mini tags set 
using the super adorable 
Somebunny stamp set . 

Image 1

I created the card first . I was inspired by the colors I used 
for the card to create my mini cupcake topper tags. 

I colored the images in using my Copic markers , 
it went by pretty quick since 
I used the same color combinations for all 
of my bunnies . 

I added a bit of adhesive to the back of them 
and glued my toothpick to that part .
