Today I am hopping along with a long list of designers for the new Anita Jeram Release from Colorado Craft Company. For my cards today I pulled out my Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils to color these sweet images.
For my first card I created a little watercolor starry night sky. I love how this little mouse from the Love Art set looks like he is standing back admiring his work.
For my second card, I felt that this tall image would work great on a slimline card. I kept things simple with some very light ink blending behind the image so that the bright colors of the image would stand out. This little guy is also from the Love Art set.
GIVEAWAY: I have a $25 gift card to Colorado Craft Company to giveaway. Please leave a comment by midnight EST on April 13th to be entered to win.
*** Congrats to Mary B the winner of the $25 gift card ***

Hi! Thanks for the opportunity to win a gift card from Colorado Crafts!! My favorite is the Farhers Day one w/ the tiny mouse bouncing on his daddy’s belly cuz when our son was younger, he & daddy would wrestle nightly. I could hear tons of laughter coming from both! Wonderful memories we cherish!! Many Blessings,
Oh My Gosh! This whole release is so uplifting, and what do we need more than anything right now…but the Love Art set really captures the feeling of fellowship and community we share as artists and papercrafters, so if I have to choose, this one is my fave. (I’ll be getting all of them, though). Love your use of vivid coloring!
OMGee! I love the mouse painting the night sky in bright golds stars! So wonderful!
Pretty cards! Love the art stamp set!
Such adorable stamps! You have a dream job, I must say!! You are very talented. It’s very hard to pick a favorite!!
Your cards are amazingly beautiful! I love the beautiful colors. CCC and Anita Jeram’s new release is awesome. My favorite is Love Art, but I love them all. Thanks for sharing!
Very clever cards and beautiful cards!
Beautiful colors! Love what you did with these adorable stamps
Your first card with the artist and night sky, is precious 😍
Love both cards. I can see doing both. I really like the starry night in that circle.
Especially loved the night sky card.
I love the images, of course. But I was so excited when I saw the Bob Ross sayings. My kids grew up on watching him on PBS. 3 of my 5 kids make a living off of their passion. Thanks Anita and Bob. Thanks Chari
Such an adorable way to use this set. Love the starry night.
I love the way you colored with the colored pencils and shaded with the ink. I think that the slim line card was the perfect choice for that card. Thank you for sharing it.
Love the night sky artist. I’m going to have to grab those pencils out. 💛
Your cards are very well done. I especially like the starry sky one. It is a unique take on that image.
Hi, Chari – Your colored penicl coloring is SPECTACULAR. TFS
This 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 love the little tiny “The Artist” stamp.
A virtual hug –

I love your cards. Adorable!
Very cute card.
Great card. Love working with distress inks too. These sets are all wonderful and the ones I like the best are the Masterpiece in the making (the set you used) and From all of us!
Loving both of these cards. Like that starry night on the 1st card and the background shading and shadowing on the other card. My favorite from the new release is Anita Jeram Love Art stamp and die set. Thank you for sharing.
My favourite is Best Chef Ever but who can resist a Bob Ross quote. Lovely!
Love the love set and your beautiful starry sky !
Chari, the slimline card is so cute. Colors and simplicity as you note is very inspirational. I have many distressed inks and you have given me great motivation to use them.
Love the starry night card. Very unique.
I love all of Anita Jeram’s stamps. The Love Art stamps are very cute and I love your cards.
Simply lovin’ the fun new stamps! Adorable cards!
Love what you’ve done with these. (This is my favorite set of the new release.) That’s such a sweet idea having the little artist admiring his finished painting of the starry sky! The slimline is perfect. Brilliant colors. Happy to see pencils too. Thanks for sharing your talents with us.
Your cards are spectacular! I love your ink blending on the slimline card – so soft and beautiful! My favorite from this release is For Mom or Amazing Mom. I would love to encourage my mom and daughters with those.
Very nice cards. Great techniques. Happy cards!
Love both of your cards but the starry night one is my favorite. Very creative. Thanks for sharing!
Both of these cards are wonderful but love that you changed it up with the starry night.
Such bright and colorfully created cards. Very impressive.
Love these stamps…Favorite is the cute mouse coloring the leaves, etc.
I love the 2 totally diffrent cards from the one set. Awsome job!
Love your cards and the respective quotes. Fits perfectly together.
I love your cards!
Such lovely cards! I can’t pick a favorite. I love them all!
The starry night card is just great. My favorite of this release is the Love Art set.
I love Proud of You–so sweet and I think can be used for many occasions. Thanks for the opportunity to win such a wonderful prize!
Cute and happy. Both cards live up to what you state is your purpose. I really love the night sky.
Thanks for sharing your adorable cards! I especially like the Proud of You set, but they’re all so endearing and hard to resist.
Love your cards!
So clever to add your own painting for the mousey. You’ve made him introspective and proud at the same time! I also love Bob Ross and truly appreciate his quote.
Darling cards! That first card is the best take on a step set! I so enjoy your work.
Wonderful coloring! Doesn’t help me pick just one set as the favorite cuz I love ALL the adorable mice! Can’t help myself with a nickname of “Mouse” .
The old-fashioned looking images make the sweetest cards.
The starry night card is swoon worthy, but that cutie painting all things in the colors of fall has me wanting to skip right to the fall season.
Who wouldn’t love these Anita Jeram designs? I like the way you did them both, but especially the second one….such pretty colors!
Such sweet, adorable cards! Love the colors…
Thanks so much for sharing.
Nice work! My first blog hop.
Yay, resolved! I love the starry night scene you created, and he does look like he painted it! How stinking clever is that? The artsy card looks great with your beautifully blended background. Thanks for all your hard work and efforts!
I love them all but if I HAVE to pick a favorite it would be Love Art – love your designs, such lovely cards 🙂
I absolutely love the starry night card! Two questions if you don’t mind. First of all, did you just print out the sentiment, or did you have a stamp and secondly, do you recall what dies you used for the moon and stars? Thank you!
The sentiment was a stamp. It was from a mini set that I do not recall the name of at the moment. The stars and moon were hand painted.
