Oh the Panda-bilities ~ Craftin Desert Divas January Release

January 13, 2019 0 Comments
Hello Friends! Welcome to my blog!

Today's project features the new Craftin Desert Divas Panda-bilities Stamps.

This set has the cutest pandas and sentiments!


For my card I started by ink blending my background. I used my neglected Ranger Distress Inks to create a night sky.  The colors I used are Milled Lavender, Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord, Faded Jeans, and Black Soot. I forgot how beautiful the regular Distress Inks are and really fell in love with them again! To create my stars I watered down a little bit of gesso and I mixed a little bit of Perfect Pearls in some water and spatters both on. I set my panel aside to dry and worked on the other elements I wanted for this card.

To create the grass I die cut some white cardstock with CDD Outdoor Landscape 2 dies and inked blended the grass with Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover Distress Ink.

I took a white panel and die cut a window using CDD Inside Scalloped Circle Dies. Now my card was ready to assemble.

I attached my ink blended panel to my card base added some of the grass and popped up the adorable little pandas from the new CDD Panda-bilities stamp wit some thin foam squares. I add another bit of grass to my window panel and popped it all up with some more foam squares.

Lastly I added a sentiment from the Panda-bilities stamp and embellished my card with a few sequins.


Be sure to check out the CDD Blog for more projects featuring the new Panda-bilites stamps.

Get your list ready! All of the new products will be available for purchase Jan 16, 2019 in the CDD Shop!

ARRRGH! Its Your Birthday! ~ Craftin Desert Divas January Release

January 12, 2019 0 Comments

Hello Friends! Welcome to my blog!

Today I am sharing a fun birthday card featuring Craftin Desert Divas new Pirate Pals Stamps.


This stamp set is filled with cute critters dressed up as pirates and it has a few accessories, as well. They are perfect for pirate themed cards or layouts.

To create this card I stated by inking up my background with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and CDD Hill Scene 2 Stencil to create my clouds.  I created the ocean by die cutting the waves with CDD Outdoor Landscape 2 Dies and sponging them with some Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink. I sprinkled the waves with a little bit of water to create some interest.

I used CDD Stitched Alphabet Dies and some wood grain cardstock that I created with this background stamp.  I cut the letters out several times and stacked them to give my card some dimension.

The cute little critter and the message in the bottle, both from CDD Pirate Pals, were colored with Copic Markers and added to the card.

The sentiment I stamped is from an older CDD stamp set that is no longer available but I felt it was perfect for this card.
