DT Spotlight - Leanne

Hey everyone!
Happy September 1st!!  Today is the first Monday of the month which means spotlight time.  It also happens to be holiday for us in the USA, it's Labor Day!  Woo Hoo!!  A well deserved one me thinks.   Have you gone through our Halloween blog hop yet?  If you have terrific, hopefully you've left comments on everyone's blog.  If not, you have some time left, the hop ends on 9/7 and we'll announce the winners on 9/9.  Click HERE to get started.

Now let's get on with my spotlight for today.  If you haven't already noticed, owner and illustrator, Ruth Johnson not only created some adorably cute images for Halloween and Christmas, but she added some awesome sea animals to the mix!!  I am so excited to share one of the new sea animals today, as it was one that I specifically asked for.  She did an awesome job putting her cuteness stamp on this digi...  This is my card featuring Narwhal Love I...

Cute yah?  I love how squishy they turned out.  This is actually one image that I printed out two more times in different sizes.  For fun I used different colors on these guys.  To create the sea I used Distress inks, an embossing folder, a wave border die, Stickles and some Perlen liquid. The wave border was layered on the bottom and one of the narwhals fit perfectly inside it.  Using the Perlen pen gives these guys the wet look I was going for.  Love that stuff!

There are two more narwhals in the store as well as some cute sea honus (turtles) you can pick up. Don't forget in honor of Labor Day, Ruth is offering up the following coupon code:
  • 15% off coupon, use code 'Labor15' at check out
  • Offer good between 8/29 and 9/5
  • Can be used on your purchase for both clear and digital stamps
  • **Customers who spend $50 or more get a Mahalo (thank you) coupon for 20% off a future order. (Mahalo coupon expires 9/30)
Now's your opportunity to stock up on some really adorable Halloween, Christmas and sea animal images!  Head on over to the Etsy shop now...

Alrighty, thanks a lot for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your day!

DT Spotlight - Cely

Today's spotlight post is from Cely of Hawaii Paper Party!

Aloha guys! Cely here and its my turn in the spotlight this month! Woohoo! I used the image called Raccoon 3. Isn't he so cute? This raccoon is very versatile! I think he was initially made for Valentine's, but I'm using him on a baby card.  I colored him in with Copics and punched him out using a SU circle punch.  

The paper I used is a little scrap from a SU dsp pack. Cardstock and ribbon are also from SU. The sequins I got from CalypsosCards on Etsy.  

Hope you enjoyed my spotlight! To visit me and see more of my work, visit

This is just adorable Cely!  And you're right - it was an image released for Valentine's but he works perfectly on your baby card!!  Make sure you swing by Cely's blog and say hello!

Mahalo Plenty!

DT Spotlight - Julie

Today's spotlight is brought to us by Julie of I Made A Card!


This could have been my challenge card for our current "In the Garden Challenge" as I couldn't decide between two cute images - so what else could I do? I coloured them both and made two cards. (What's that? You've not linked your card to our challenge yet?  Come on... closes on Friday!  You need the link? Click here!)

I've chosen to use Plant Pot Owl and teamed it up with some lovely purple papers. In fact pretty much every card I've made over the last week has been purple as I bought a new pretty paper stack. Yep poor me I had no paper at all in my house, nope none and had to buy some more!  (OK so that last sentence may be a little fib - but you know where I'm coming from as you were probably behind me in the queue!)

Anyway thanks for looking - hope you have a fab day!


Ooooh love the purple Julie!!  This Plant Pot Owl is such a cutie!!!  Great job!!!  Make sure to swing by her blog and see all her other purple projects!!

Mahalo Plenty!

DT Spotlight - Michelle

Today's spotlight post is brought to us by Michelle from Just A Nutter Stamper.

Hi! My name is Michelle from Just A Nutter Stamper, and I'm a new member of the Kitty Bee design team. I love to pick adorable puppy images for my niece Anna as she is as big a dog lover as I am! Here is the cupcake pup I chose from the Etsy store-

This image was colored with my Spectrum Noir markers. I used Spellbinder dies to cut the image out, and used the polka dot embossing folder on the white background paper. The teal cardstock is Coordination Brights, and scrap yellow and red complete the card.

This is my first project as part of the Kitty Bee Design Team, and I'm so excited to join such a talented group of people!

We are so lucky to have you join us Michelle!  I love the bright colors you used in this card... I'm sure your niece will love it!  Make sure you swing by her blog and welcome her to the team!!

Mahalo Plenty!

DT Spotlight - Larissa

Today's spotlight is from Larissa of Muffins and Lace!

Good morning everyone. Larissa here with some note cards for you today. I decided to start my Halloween card series early this year so only saw it fitting to use a Halloween image for my Spotlight card. 

I decided to use Mr Batty

I cut 3 pieces of cardstock measuring 3x6 and scored at 3.

Added some twine to finish them off.
I think they would be perfect for lunch boxes or attached to a homemade goodie.

For more information Please check out my blog

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

This is super cute Larissa!  Great job on getting ahead of the season!!  Make sure you swing by Larissa's blog and check out more of her cute Halloween cards!
