Today I am sharing one of the new stamp sets along with some of the gorgeous new papers!

I used a group of stamps from the Refresh The Soul set I decided to attach little  stems to make sure the flowers were tucked into the vases.


I grabbed a group of Copics and colored the image.

I paired the image with the beautiful new papers from the Honey Blooms collection for a simple card.

Adorable Dare 2B Artzy Alpaca Card in Copic Color

A quick Happy hello I have a bright, cheery, and a little silly card to share today. Make sure to check in tomorrow to follow a long with a weekend blog hop and don’t forget the latest D2BA challenge!

For today’s inspiration I am playing with the Alpaca Cake set and coloring them up with my Copic markers.

Here is the pile that I used for at least most of the image

Notice I have a blank area? I wanted to brighten up the blanket so I went into my pile of D2PA papers and pulled a little pile then matched 4 markers to the papers

So then I trimmed off all those beautiful paper edges, they need a little love too, and filled a full card front with them

Then I finished up the coloring on my Alpaca and added the image. Really no embellishment was needed with all that color!

And LOVE the sentiment!

Happy Thursday, make sure to check into all the details about Copic Colleges. They are open for registration now! Head to the Dare 2B Artzy Blog for the blog hop tomorrow!

Have a Happy Colorful Day!

The products used for this card include:

Alpaca Cake

Dare 2B Artzy Premium Ink Totally Black

Assorted Dare 2B Artzy patterned papers

Simple Copic Coloring and Dare 2B Artzy

Did you know Copic coloring does not HAVE to be complicated? You can keep it really simple! This week I created a card using only a handful of colors that I love and a gorgeous new flower stamp from Dare 2B Artzy.

I colored up the image, including a little ombre on the message:

2 colors for the petals, Y17 and Y11, 2 colors on the center YR14 and YR187 then 2 colors for the leaves YG61 and YG63. I used the Y11 and Y17 on the lettering.

Then I used the back ground I created using the D2BA stencil and my Copic ABS. (Air Brush System) You can see a post all about this a little lower down that includes a video over at Copic In The Craft Room on YouTube.

I put a simple card together and now I am ready to mail it!

Here is a quick close up peek at the flower. Remember Copic can be EASY, keep it simple!

Dare 2B Artzy has a whole slew of new products filling their shelves as the new year gets rolling so if you are needing an influx of inspiration head that way!
