Holiday Collection Release


Welcome to the last stop on the CCDesigns/Doveart Studios Holiday Release.  We so appreciate all the lovely comments you have left for all the Dove-Artistic DT!  I hope you have enjoyed all the inspiration.

Introducing the holiday collection!!
Featuring 8 NEW stamps from
DoveArt Studios Collection

We are very excited about each of these new stamps and we know you will want them all!!!
Thank you all for the sweet comments.  We are so glad you loved the release!! The winners are posted here.  You can contact Christine to claim your prize at

I like that you did pastels; it took this stamp over the top. The moose is probably my favorite, however, just like a child in a candy store, I want them all.

This Blog Hop was wonderful! I love the new releases!!! I don't know how you could expect us to pick just ONE stamp as our favorite. I want them all!!!!

Love the way you did this one too, Jenn. Goodness, so many really beautiful images to choose from. I would have to pick the Cardinal Birdhouse as my favorite since I love to color red bird images, followed closely by Making A List since I love presents and hope I am on that list! You are just so talented :)

Here is what I have created:

For this super cute stamp (with so many possibilities) I thought I would do something very outside the box.  I used some fun Copic colors and a water brush with alcohol in it (NO, I am not drinking!)...rubbing alcohol silly!  I am totally in love with this card and think I will have to keep it!

He's Making a List....Have You Been Naughty or Nice?

I think this Santa from the new DoveArt Studios holiday release, Making a List, is one of the best looking Santa's I have ever seen! So I decided to make him the main focal point of my Christmas book this year.  I really love how he looks on the front cover!

Tea for You!

This beautiful card was created by Irene Mendes.  You can check out her whole post at My Own Crafty Space blog.  Using Faber-Castell Pitt Pastel pencils she colored up Tea Time from LDRS Creative.  I love the soft feel of this beautiful card.  I love that you can color this stamp using any coloring medium.

I hope you enjoy the inspiration using this stamp, I know I did!

Gardener's Card.


I'm sharing a card today I have made for my step Dad, as I coloured the image I found myself thinking of him and how much he loves gardening so I'll be sending this one to him just because he is such a good man that I love dearly.

As you can see I used a LOT of markers for this image and a couple of polychromos pencils. The style of this card went through many changes from straight out CAS to an easel card then finally after all that colouring I decided to chop it into three and create this fancy fold screen card and I'm very happy with it :)

The Garden Bench stamp was a delight to colour.

Bye for now
