Colorado Craft Company April Reveal

I am so excited to be part of today’s  Colorado Craft Company April Release. This release is full of Anita Jeram whimsical characters. Anita is an accomplished children’s book author and illustrator:

“Having sold over 47 million copies worldwide, she has truly captured the hearts of children and adults alike. Now, together with 3C, we bring you stamps, dies, papers, and stencils that are sure to help you create handmade cards that are fun, kind, and whimsical.”

I made a clean and simple card, featuring the new Proud Of You stamp set. I adore this image, and couldn’t wait to get busy watercoloring them. You can see the process here:

I loved how this card turned out, and can’t wait to get started with more sets.

I will Be back on Monday with more inspiration, so be sure to stop back by! Now, as Anita would say, go “create something delightful today!”

Giveaway is closed. Congratulations, Lisa.

  1. I love the way your card turned out. I think that your restraint in painting the “wispy grass” is admirable… it was obvious you were enjoying the new brush and the background turned out fabulous. The whole card turned out fantastic.

    The choice of which set is the one I would get is a tough choice. I think the Love Art set is my favorite. I love the quotes around the edge. I also like “Amazing Mom” a lot. I also like that little “The Artist” tiny stamp. I did not see it until you showed it. I must have missed it on CCC’s site.

    1. Gah!! I just made a card with that little artist tonight. IN LOVE!! I’ll be sharing it Monday. 😍

  2. I have to admit I must reiterate the two ladies comments above me. Exactly my thoughts! My face is the kitty on the bed, I do so many get well cards, that one is for me hands down! Fun video, love the wispy and snappy tip pleasure in your voice

  3. I love what you did with the AJ Proud of You stamp from CCC. I like how clean it looks! Your demo video was very helpful to me as I’m just recently trying wc again. The colors you chose (and how you chose them) brought the scene to life very crisply. Hooray!

    1. I’m so happy. I do love to Copic color, but my heart is leaning watercolor, so you will see al lot more if you stick around. ❤️

  4. Love how all the critters are dancing in “proud of you” but then again, how can I not love a painting mouse??? thanks as always for sharing.

  5. Absolutely adorable! This is my favorite set from the release. You colored them perfectly, and I really love the grass!

  6. Beautiful card, I need to try watercolors again. I need that little artist small set in this release, although all the images are super sweet!

  7. Too cute for words…. love the coloring of the critters and love the long grass behind.

  8. Great card. I can’t get enough of these adorable Anita Jeram images. I also the mini’s….what’s not to love!?!

  9. Wow! Stunning cards! I love the „Love Art“ and „Proud of you“ set.

    Thanks for sharing these cards with us!

  11. My favorite of the new release is Anita Jeram Love Art stamp and die set. Your Hooray Card is lovely. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Angelica, your card is all things dreamy! I love how sweet the images are and you’ve given them such depth and life! TFS!

  13. Just love your sweet card! Your water coloring is beautiful! And your suggestions and tips are awesome! You have inspired me to get back into watercolor painting. Thanks so much for sharing your talents!

  15. Cute card, I really like the added grasses. The Love Art is my favorite of the new releases but this stamp is very cute too.

  16. Your watercoloring is beautiful! My favorite form this release is Amazing Mom or For Mom. So hard to pick!

  17. Love this! Your card definitely shows the beauty of this set much better than the image of the stamp set ever could!

  18. Your card should be framed! Absolutely gorgeous! I think I would have to select Love Art. We had mice in the basement last year and they were NOT painting flowers. 😁

  19. I love this stamp set and especially how you used it and colored it for your terrific card.

  20. The stamp design is delightful and your water coloring is perfect to be in a storybook! I couldn’t find the link to “see the process here:” 🙁
