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!!

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
Muffins and Lace
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!

DT Spotlight - TraceyB

Today's post is from TraceyB of Tracey's Corner Cards.


My name is Tracey from Tracey's Corner Cards.

This is my first posting for Kitty Bee spotlight.I am very excited to be part of this lovely DT.

For my spotlight I chose 'Lovebugs' it was very hard to decide which one to work on as they are so lovely.

Here is the card I made

I have coloured with Promarkers then I mound the image onto a Spellbinders oval die cut. I have used one of my favourite dotty sheets of card. 

To embellish I have used black gems,tiny red gems,jewel butterfly and a sentiment which reads 'love you'

Thank you for reading and I hope you will enjoy using the Kitty Bee images.

Tracey this is soooo cute!  I love the red and black color scheme... perfect!  Make sure you swing by her blog and say hello!!

DT Spotlight - Zella

Today's spotlight is brought to us by Zella of Joyful Expressions!

August is my Anniversary!  So in honor of the month - of course I had to use the image "Bunny Love" for my card today!  LOL!!  They are just so darling that I didn't want to color them - I left them white because they are pure like love.  The pink bow and the red heart really pop - don't you think?  Check out all the great images at the Kitty Bee Itsy store...and hop on over to our Aloha Friday challenges too.  They last for 2 weeks so there is plenty of time to make card.  Have a great weekend!!!!!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful anniversary card with us Zella!!  And congrats on your anniversary, I hope you have a wonderful one!!  Swing by Zella's blog to see more about her card!

On another note, I just want to say that Hawaii is currently in between 2 hurricanes - Hurricane Iselle hit Thursday/Friday and Hurricane Julio is expected to hit Sunday/Monday... so please be patient with us if we take a bit to get back to you.  We will catch up as soon as possible next week!!

DT Spotlight - Leanne

Can you believe summer is quickly coming to an end?
 Leanne of Finding My Groove has this fun and sweet image to share
as we try to hang on to what's left of summer!


It's the first Monday of the month and that means it's spotlight time.  I chose to spotlight another adorable panda from the Etsy store.  This is Flying Kite Panda and I created a scene using Copic markers & Distress inks.  I decided to keep it really simple so I made it in to a shaped card.  For some fun texture I added black & white twine for the string.

I hope I was able to put a smile on your face and get your Monday on the right path.  For more fun images to purchase for your crafting needs head on over to the Kitty Bee Designs Etsy store.  Don't forget to join our current Aloha Friday challenge which ends next Friday.  Click HERE for all the details.

Mahalo for stopping by!  Have a terrific week!
