Gimme My Elixir! Interactive Pop-Up Card

Hello my crafty friend!  Today I am on the blog with Gimme my Elixir card featuring the fun and barely there Caffeinated Dragon!  I have him in pop up mode coming to the top of his castle when you open this interactive card card

The castle was created with printed paper pieces. Do you recognize the window shapes?  These are created using the small light bulbs from the Light Me Up Stencil.  They are the perfect shape, right?
I used a 85# dark blue cardstock for the card base, added the grass and drawbridge creating a moat around the castle. On the front of the card base, I use printed paper and die cut letters. 

To color the dragon, I chose pinks red and golds from my TriBlend alcohol markers.  I start by coloring the dragon body with the lightest pink and then using a stippling/dotting technique. I add a graduation of lighter to darker pinks and red dots to create the shading. I love the stippling look.  Not only does it add an interesting look to the dragon,it give it almost scale like texture.  The wings and horns are colored in the yellow golds to give look smoother look.

Here are The Rabbit hole Design products used in this card:

I hope this inspires you to try the stippling/dotting technique on your next creation. Remember it does not have to be alcohol markers (that is my preference),  you can use any type of coloring medium such as colored pencils, watercolors, and other types of pigments to color your image.

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog!

Puff and a Cuppa Coffee

Hello Rabbit Hole Designs Fans!! DTM Shanna here with another fun card using my newest favorite Caffeinated Critter, Caffeinated Dragon!  
I was playing around with my Zigs again, and had a lot of fun making a green dragon.....pairing it with a background I made using the Spell It stencil!!  You know you are singing the song with me right now!!

To add some sparkle and detail to my critter, I used Liquid Pixie Dust, from Inkon3, to paint oval-scales on the body of the dragon.  This was my first time intentionally painting with the pixie dust, and oh my goodness will I be doing it again!  Subtle-sparkly-texture-goodness!!! 

Lastly, I added a sentiment banner using a sassy sentiment from the Perfectly Blended sentiment set.  Dragons are old right? So of course they drank coffee before it was cool!!  (or so my 10 year old says!!!)

What is your go-to supply for sparkle??  I am enamored with the Liquid Pixie Dust right now, but have used many things in the past.  
That wraps up my post for today, I will be back for another trip down The Rabbit Hole next week!  Until then you can find me over on my blog, Caffeinated Craftiness or over on Instagram
***BONUS*** I have a speed coloring video with me coloring this dragon over on my FB page and IGTV channel!!  Take a peek, I will be sharing it in the fan group as well!

Caffeinated Valentine Tags

Happy Valentine's Day!
Michelle here, I created some caffeinated gift tags for mini Valentine's Day gifts. The whole 
Caffeinated line is perfect for gift tags!
 Having the coordinating dies makes it a lot easier! I used Caffeinated Owl Stamp and Die, and
 I stamped the owl and flamingo, than die cut the images. I colored the caffeine cuties
with Copic Markers. I die cut each image twice per tag. One colored, one blank. 
After I colored the front of the tag I adhered the black die to the back.
 I stamped the back of the tags with sentiments from the set, Perfectly Blended.
I filled each treat bag with some Starbucks Via packets and Hershey Kisses...perfect combo!

Hope you give this a try!
Hope you enjoy today!
