Angelic Thoughts

Hi all, Dorinda here today with my inspiration.

As Christmas draws near, we begin to really think about our blessings; those we hold dear,
helping others, even having a home.
I'd like to think I appreciate my blessings year round.
I am truly blessed with my family and friends.

So, today I'd like to share a little Angelic Fairy with you.

This is DoveArt Studios, Fairy Ella.
She is so fragile and precious.

I hope she adds a little blessing to your day.

Big Hugs,

Dreams Do Come True

Hello everyone, Nic here to show you one of the new stamps.

I have chosen to use the new Castle stamp.  I have created this card in honor of my daughter, Madison's, love for Disneyland.  It brings back special memories of her very first visit to Disneyland when she was a little girl and she was scared of all the characters but Cinderella.  I still remember the look of awe on Madison's face when she met Cinderella and the kindness that Cinderella showered upon her.  Her love for this magical place, that allows everyone to dream big dreams, keeps on growing and for that I am grateful!

Here is the picture that inspired my card...isn't it dreamy?!

Copic Colors Used:

Castle ~ T0, T1, T3, T5, T6
          B21, B23, B26
                    Y00, Y11, Y15, YR23
Greenery ~ G20 G21, G24
Pathway ~ W0, W1, W2, W4
Water ~ B21, B23, B26
Background ~ Y04, B23, B26, RV34

Supplies Used:
Clear Wink of Stella Brush Pen
Liquid Gold Opaque Paint Marker by Deco Color
Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive

To create this card, I first colored the Castle with Copics on Hammermill Color Copy Digital Cover, 100lb. and then did some fussy cutting.  The background is created by using the airbrush machine with Copics on glossy cardstock and then spritzed with 91% alcohol in a Mini Mister.  I wanted to really give the Castle a lot of dimension, so I popped the castle up by using a double layer of foam tape.  For the finishing touches, I used my Big Shot to cut out the word, dream, from white cardstock and added some sparkle with my clear Wink of Stella brush pen; and I couldn't resist using these chipboard mini stars in three different sizes from Make It Crafty.  I first colored them gold with my Liquid Gold Opaque Paint Marker and added that extra sparkle with my clear Wink of Stella brush pen.

I am so thrilled how this card turned out and I hope it gives you inspiration to dream big dreams!!!

Mountain Song

Hi all,

Andrea here today to share this card I made using the gorgeous New stamp 'Mountain Song' it just oozes tranquility so the sentiment 'Life is Beautiful' from the 'Perfectly Beautiful sentiments stamp' was a perfect match for this card.

Unfortunately I don't have a list of Copic marker colours to share with you this time, sorry. 
I stamped the image three times and chose to only colour the one and pop it up on top of the other two.  I love how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by

Hop Hop Hop - Egg Hunt

It's not fair to ask to pick a favorite, that's like asking me which child is my favorite! But nudging to the top of the list is the Horse Barn stamp and the coloring Faye did. I feel like I could drive right by this image on a country road.

You have outdone yourself with this release! Such a variety! I love them all, and it is hard to label just one as my favorite! If I am forced to choose one as my fav.........then it would be....the Castle.

Egg Hunt Background and Through the Window are my favorites! Awesome hop to highlight these beautiful new designs! Gorgeous creations, and I enjoyed visiting the blogs of these talented ladies on the DT!

Congratulation ladies!!  Everyone left such inspirational and sweet comments.  Thank you for being apart of the Hop!  Winners can contact Christine with CCDesigns to claim your prize at

We hope you enjoyed the hop and the new release from CCDesigns and DoveArt Studios.  If you are just starting on the DoveArt Studios blog be sure and start at the beginning and follow the links below to multiply your chance at winning a new release stamp of our choosing.

This hop featured 12 new stamps ranging from Easter, Southwest, oriental, in the woods, magical and country.  Something for everyone!  We really hope you were inspired!

I had fun coloring Egg Hunt background.  I know its hard to think Easter quite yet but I thought I would make this available to you early so you have time to create something fabulous after the dust settles from Christmas.  Plus by now you might be tired of coloring everything red and green and need some color in your life.

This stamp is a full background stamp that can be cut down, cut out, popped up, colored monochromatic with color pop and so much more.  I colored it twice and cut a layer out of one image to pop it up in the center and give it dimension. I know it is hard to see in the photograph.  It is a very therapeutic image to adult coloring but better!
