You Are Special ~ Craftin Desert Divas December Release

December 13, 2018 0 Comments
Hello! Welcome to my blog!

Today I am sharing another look at the new Craftin Desert Divas Mice to Meet You stamps and All Together Sentiments.

To create this card I started by ink blending some Distress Oxide Ink onto my Neenah Solar White Cardstock. I started by blending some Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber onto CDD Burst Stencil. I wanted to see the sun's rays come from the side of my scene. With the CDD Hill Scene 2 Stencil I sponged on some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to create my clouds.

I stamped my sentiment from CDD All Together Sentiments in Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I wanted this to be par of my grass area and a landing area for my mouse image. I completely inked the bottom on my cardstock with Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, and Pine Needles Distress Oxide Ink.  Once I was happy with ink blended background I sprinkled it with some water and blotted it up with a paper towel. I hit the panel with my heat gun to make sure everything was dry then ran it through my Big Shot with the CDD Crazy Stitched Frame Die. I added the panel to some craft foam and glued it to my card base.

For my images I used CDD Mice to Meet You stamps and colored them with Copic Markers and fussy-cut them out. I stamped the mouse image again onto my background so that I could get her tail. I popped both of the images up with foam squares and added some details with a White Gel Pen and some Glossy Accents on the heart. 

The complete the card I added a few Fairy Dust Sequins.

Be sure to check out the December Release in the CDD Shop.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope to see you soon!

Love You This Much! ~ Craftin Desert Divas December Release

December 09, 2018 0 Comments
Hello and Welcome to my blog!

Today I am sharing a sneak peek from Craftin Desert Divas December Release.

The stamp set I am featuring is Mice to Meet You. This set has the cutest mice. I love these little mice and think you will, too!

To create this card I started by stamping a sentiment from CDD All Together Sentiments across my Cardstock with embossing ink. I added some clear embossing powder and heat set it with my heat gun.  Once cooled I added some color with Spun Sugar and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Ink to reveal the embossing. For the scalloped edge I used CDD Fancy Frames Dies.

I colored the cute little mouse with Copic markers and fussy-cut her out. Yes, I even cut out those time hearts! I put together CDD Stitched Box Die and added some polka dots with CDD Sorted Shapes 1 Stencil and white pigment ink. I added my little mouse inside and arranged her on the card panel. 

I heat embossed the sentiment that is included in the new Mice to Meet You set and added a few details with a white gel pen, Clear Wink of Stella, and Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew.

All of the new product will be available Monday, December 10 in the CDD Shop.

Hey Girl ~ Craftin Desert Divas December Release

December 07, 2018 0 Comments
Hello Friends! Welcome to my blog and another release from Crafting Desert Divas

Today I am share a sneak peek a the new CDD Dragon Tales Stamps and All Together Sentiments.

The Dragon Tales stamp set is a 5"x7" stamp set filled with cute images to make so many fairy tale scenes. You've got castles, dragons, a princess, and knights in shining armor all included in this set.

For my card I created a scene. I started by creating a background with CDD Hill Scene 2 Stencil to create my clouds and ground. For this I used Tumbled Glass, Twisted Citron, and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks. 

The tree was inked with Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Gathered Twigs, and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks and CDD Blooming Tree Stencil. I used my Copic makers to give the tree a little bit of detail.

I colored my princess and dragon from the CDD Dragon Tales stamps using Copic markers and fussy-cut them out. Before I adding them to my card I stamped a sentiment from the new All Together Sentiments. These sentiments are designed to go across the card but I decided to stamp it a bit off my card.

I popped the images up with some foam squares and added my panel to a white card base.

Be sure to head on over the Craftin Desert Divas Gallery on Facebook to see even more projects using these new stamps.

The full release will be available for purchase on Monday, December 10, 2018 in the CDD Shop.

I will be back with more sneak peeks in a few days. See you then!

Warmest Wishes ~ CDD November Release

November 15, 2018 0 Comments

Hello Friends!

I am back to share another card from Craftin Desert Divas Bear Hugs Stamps and the new Snowflake Border Dies.

I love how this sweet card came together and I hope you do too.

To create this card I started with a panel of Neenah Solar White 80# cardstock and used the new CDD Snowflake Border die to die cut the beautiful snowflakes across 3/4 of my panel. I adhered the panel to my card base the is made with Neenah 110# Solar White.

Next I took some Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock and ink blended my panel with Distress Oxide Inks in the Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet, Faded Jeans, and a little Black Soot. I spritzed it with a little water and picked it up with a paper towel. I hit it with my heat gun to make sure it was nice and dry then used CDD Stitched In Circles Dies to cut out my circle.

For my sentiment I used CDD Chilly Stamps (no longer available) and heat embossed it using WOW! Super Fine Embossing Powder in Opaque Bright White. I added my die-cut circle to my panel.

Now it was time for my focal image. I just think this little bear from CDD Bear Hugs Stamps all cosy in his cave is the cutest!! I colored the image with my Copic Marker and fussy-cut it out.  I added some Nuvo Crystal drops in Simply White. Instead making a drop I placed a bead of it on the different laces on the case and sprinted the areas with some Martha Stewart Coarse Glitter that I have had in my stash forever. I used my finger to press it into the Nuvo Crystal Drops. When I was happy with the look I added some foam squares to the upper portion of my cave and added a bead of glue to the bottom portion and added it to my card front.

I added some more Nuvo Crystal Drops and glitter to the bottom of my cave and ground.  My last step was to add a few of the snowflakes from the CDD Snowflake Border Dies around my sentiment that had been glittered and some additional snow in the sky using my White Gel Pen.

I just adore the way this card came together!

Bear Hugs ~ Craftin Desert Divas November Release

November 08, 2018 1 Comments

Hello, my friends! Today is the start of another Craftin Desert Divas release.

My card features the new Bear Hugs Stamps and Snowflake Border Dies.

The Bear Hugs stamps are so cute! I love all of the images in this set and the fonts for the sentiments are fabulous!! 

I am in love with the new Snowflake Border Dies! I used one of the small dies in the set to create a faux "cover plate" design and I adore the way this came out!

I wanted to keep my card pretty clean and simple so I layered my white die-cut panel over a white card base. 

For my focal point I used CDD Stitched in Circles Dies along with the CDD Hill Scene 2 Stencil to create a background for my image. I used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink for the clouds. Before layering my circle I stamped my sentiment from the new CDD Bear Hugs Stamps, I layered the die-cut circle onto my panel and trimed the edge. 

I colored up this cute polar bear with Copic markers and popped him up on some foam squares onto my card, then took a few of the snowflakes for the new CDD Snowflake Border Dies and added them around the sentiment. For more sparkle and shine, I added a few clear gems to the centers of the snowflakes, Clear Wink of Stella to the snow, and some Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops to my polar bears nose.

Be sure to head on over the the Craftin Desert Divas Facebook Gallery to find more inspiration using the Bear Hugs Stamps and Snowflake Border Dies.

These products will be available in the CDD Shop on November 13.
