Just For Ewe

February 22, 2019 0 Comments
Hello Friends and Welcome to my blog!

Today I am sharing another look at Craftin Desert Divas Wooly Lambs stamps.


These images are so sweet! I could not wait to use them again.

To begin I started with a panel of Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock and used the CDD Hill Scene 2 Stencil with some Shaded Lilac Distress Ink to create my clouds. I let that dry for a few moments then used CDD Blooming Tree Stencil along with some Distress Inks in Tea Dye and Twisted Citron to create some tree branches. To give the leaves a little more depth I colored the leaves with Copic Markers.

To the bottom of the panel I added some grass die-cut from CDD Outdoor Landscape 2 Dies and used Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover Distress Ink to give it some color. The fence, also from CDD Outdoor Landscape 2 Dies, was cut three times and glued together for a bit of dimension and add to the scene. This panel was then added to a card base of Neenah Classic Crest 110# cardstock.

For my images I first cut the shapes using my Silhouette Cameo and CDD Wooly Lambs SVGs. I stamped the images from the Wooly Lambs stamps and colored them with Copic Markers. Before adding them to my panel I stamped my sentiment and colored it in with Copic Markers.

I popped up the little lamb and butterfly with some foam squares and the card is complete!

Eastercorn Wishes! ~ Craftin Desert Divas

February 20, 2019 0 Comments
Hello Friends! Welcome to my blog!

Today I sharing card featuring Craftin Desert Divas new Eastercorn Stamps and the new Sorted Shapes 3 Stencil.


To begin, I started with a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock, some Distress Oxide Inks, and CDD Hill Scene 2 Stencil to create some clouds. I was in the mood for some color so I used several Distress Oxide Inks to create my rainbow clouds. The colors I used are Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet.  I let it dry for a bit and ran this panel through my Big Shot with the CDD Crazy Stitched Frames Dies. I really love this die and its stitched detail.

Next I took the new CDD Sorted Shapes 3 Stencil and some Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone and added some random hearts to my background. I set this aside to dry and went on to do some stamping coloring.

Before stamping and coloring I cut out my images with the Easterncorn Outline SVG with my Silhouette Cameo. I stamped the new CDD Eastercorn stamps and colored the cute unicorn and birdie with my Copic Markers. For some detail I added a few highlights with a white gel pen

Now that everything was dried it was time to assemble my card. I started with some Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock to create my card base. I layered my die-cut panel on top and stamped my sentiment from the new Eastercorn stamps with some Black Gina K Amalgam Ink. I popped up my images with some foam squares. To bring this up to another level I added some Ranger Glossy Accents to the balloons for some added shine.


These stamps and dies are available for purchase in the CDD Shop.


Now through February 24, 2019 you can can receive an Exclusive Mini Stamp FREE with a $40.00 Purchase before shipping.

Be Mine ~ Craftin Desert Divas February Release

February 17, 2019 0 Comments
Hello Friends! Welcome to my blog!

Today's card features the new Heart Mandala Die from Craftin Desert Divas.

This die is absolutely beautiful and I kept my card pretty simple to let this die shine.


I die-cut the Heart Mandala Die in the center of some Neenah Classic Crest 110# cardstock and then die-cut it again with the CDD Fancy Frames Dies. I ink-blended this panel with Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks and set it aside.

I took another panel of cardstock and ink blended it with some Abandoned Coral and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Inks. This panel was layered under my die-cut panel and I white heat embossed a sentiment in the center. The sentiment is from an older CDD stamp set that is no longer available.

Now it was time to build the card bu I felt I needed my card base ink-blended, as well. I used the same Distress Oxide Inks in Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick. To my card base I added a a layer from velum, my ink-blended layer that goes behind the die-cut panel and then by die-cut panel. 

I could have called it complete at this point but I decided to add once more finishing touch with some Strawberry Coulis Nuvo Jewel Drops.

The full February Release, including the Heart Mandala Die, is now available in the CDD SHOP.

Thank Ewe ! Craftin Desert Divas February Release

Hello Friends!

Today's card features the new Craftin Desert Divas Wooly Lambs Stamps and Sorted Shapes 3 Stencil.


The new Wooly Stamps are so cute! I cannot get over it! I had a lot of fun coloring this image and really love that I was able to achieve this much texture with Copic Markers and a white gel pen.

I popped this sweet lamb up with some foam squares onto a background panel that was cut with CDD Fancy Frames Dies. The create the background I masked off the edges of the card so that I only had a circle shape in the middle. I used CDD Hill Scene 2 Stencil with some Distress Oxide Inks in Mowed Lawn and Worn Lipstick to created my grassy hill and sky. With the mask still on I used the new Sorted Shapes 3 Stencil and some Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone to add some shimmery hearts in the sky. 

While that was drying I took a piece of pink cardstock and prepared it to mat under my die-cut panel. The color wasn't quite right so I used my blending brush and the Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide to get a better match. I added the panel to my card base of Neenah Classic Crest Cardstock and added craft foam to my background panel. 


I stamped my sentiment with a little Shaded Lilac and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks for a bit of gradients and popped my little lamb onto the card. I love the subtle shimmer of the glitter paste and this sweet image will make anyone smile.


Only a few more days until the full reveal and all of the new products will be in the CDD shop!

AND, Check out this cute little freebie that come with any $40.00 purchase!



Thanks for stopping by. I will be back soon with another project!

Always Be Yourself Unless...

February 12, 2019 0 Comments
Hell0 Friends! Welcome!!

Today I am sharing card featuring products from Craftin Desert Divas.


I really love the way this card came together!

To create this card I started with a piece of Neenah Solar White 110# Cardstock, CDD Polygon Stencil and Distress Oxide Inks in Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry. I blended the ink onto my cardstock until I achieved the look I was going for. I splattered a few water droplets on to the cardstock and picked it up with a cloth and then sprayed it with some Iridescent Glitter Dust Spray. Once everything was dry I cut my panel at an angle and layered it on a piece black cardstock and added it to my card base,

My sentiment and image is from CDD Panda-bilities Stamps. I cut the panda using the co-ordinating SVG and stamped him with my Misti stamping tool.  I colored the cute little pandas and balloons with Copic Markers.


I stamped my sentiment with Versa Fine Onyx Black in and added clear embossing powder and heat set it. I added my little panda and popped him with some foam squares. I added some Ranger Glossy Accents to the ballon and the panda's eyes and for a finishing touch I scattered some CDD Lollipop Sequins to the card.

That's it for today's card! I appreciate you stopping by.

Easter Wishes ~ Craftin Desert Divas February Release

February 10, 2019 0 Comments
Hello and welcome to my blog!

Today I am sharing a look at the new Craftin Desert Divas Eastercorn Stamp set.

It is another take on the cute little unicorns that you have come to know from CDD.



For my card today, I started with a piece of Distress Watercolor Cardstock and Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors and created a fun rainbow-colored background. I am still learning about this coloring medium so backgrounds may be what I play with for a while.

I applied a few layers of color allowing them to dry between. Once I was happy with the final layer I allowed it to dry them splattered it with more water color.  I set that aside to dry completely and proceeded to color my images.

I used the coordinating SVG my Silhouette Cameo to cut out my shadowed layer of the images and them stamped the images on top.

I colored the little unicorn and bird friends with Copic Markers and added a little bit of sparkle to the images with a glitter pen.

Now that the background piece was dry I ran it through my Big Shot with the CDD Fancy Frames Die. I added some craft foam to the back and popped it up onto my card base.

I stamped my sentiment from the new Eastercorn stamps and popped up the Wishes sentiment with foam squares. I added the images to card and popped them up, as well.

To finish my card I added a few sequins from CDD's Pastel Paradise Sequins and Pizazz Sequins.

These stamps will be available for purchase February 15, 2019. You can find them in the CDD Shop.

Sending Love with Craftin Desert Divas

January 25, 2019 1 Comments
Hello Friends!

Today I am sharing a card featuring products from Craftin Desert Divas.

I adore these little mice from the P.S. I love You stamps stamps and had to make another card with them.


To create this card I first started by cutting a panel of Simon Says Stamp Fog Cardstock to fit an A2 sized card base.

I used CDD Inside Scalloped Oval Dies to create a window for my cute little mice and then ran it through my die cutting machine with the CDD Heart Galore Stencil and an embossing mat. I really love the effect this gives and it's another use for your stencils.

Once I had the car base prices ready it was time to stamp and color this cute little mouse couple from CDD P.S. I Love You stamps. This little couple were stamped onto some XPress It cardstock with some SSS Intense Black Ink. This combination is my preferred method to use when coloring with Copic Markers.

Once I had my couple colored I fussy-cut them out leaving their tails behind then stamped them again on another piece of white cardstock so that I would have their outlines.

I placed the stamped cardstock in the window of the Fog card panel and added the frame for the oval. I popped my little mice that I had colored up with some foam squares and added to the outline images. Now they have tails!!

I added this layer onto a card base and stamped my sentiment in some Versa Fine Onyx Black Ink.

I added a few dots with a black multilines and adhered the heart to the frame. To finish the card off I gave the heart some spark with some Clear Wink of Stella and added some Glossy Accents.

I hope you enjoyed my card from today!

Hope to see you soon!

Be a Panda! ~ Craftin Desert Divas January release

January 21, 2019 0 Comments
Hello and welcome to my blog!

Today I have another look at Craftin Desert Divas new Panda-Bilities stamps.


I adore this new stamp set. It has the cutest pandas!

For my card I started with a Neenah 110# card base. I taped off a section to do some ink blending with the CDD Hill Scene 2 Stencil and some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink. I love the pink clouds and really think it gives the card a whimsical look.

I cut  out my pandas with my Silhouette Cameo and the Panda-Bilities SVGs then stamp stamped the shapes with the new Panda-bilities stamps. I colored them with Copic Markers and set them aside. I created the bamboo using the bamboo shoot found in CDD Panda Pals stamps (no longer available). I used some masking to create the different lengths. 

Once all of my elements were colored I arranged them on my card front and stamped my sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

I adhered the bamboo directly to the card base and used foam squares to pop up my pandas. I finished the card off with some clear sequins and added some Clear Wink of Stella to the butterfly.

 Be sure to head on over to the CDD Shop.

Adventure Awaits ~Craftin Desert Divas January Release

January 18, 2019 0 Comments

Hello and welcome to my blog!

Today I am featuring a card I created with Craftin Desert Divas new Pirate Pals Stamps.

This is a fun set that includes critters dressed up like pirates.


To create my scene I started by inking up a background using the CDD Burst Stencil and Distress Oxide inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, and Wild Honey. I blended these onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock. Once I was happy with the blend I splattered on some water droplets and soaked it up with a. dry cloth. For added sparkle I added some Perfectly Gold Perfect Pearls.

Next I worked on the ocean waves that were diet with CDD Ocean Border Dies and Outdoor Landscape Dies. I used Distress inks here, as well. The colors I used are Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, and Salty Ocean. I also cut out the sand from the CDD Outdoor Landscape Dies and added some texture with my Copic Markers.

I die cut each of the background components with the CDD Torn Paper Dies and adhered them together. I added the palm tree to the scene. The palm tree is included in the CDD Island Dies. I cut this from white card stock and colored the tree with my Copic Markers.

Lastly, I added the cute little bunny pirate, treasure, and flag from the new CDD Pirate Pals Stamps and a sentiment from the CDD Away We Go stamps. I mounted everything on my card base the that complete the card.

The January Release is now available for purchase in the CDD Shop.

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.

I'll be back tomorrow with another peek!
