Splash ~ Craftin Desert Divas May Release


Hello Creative Friends!

Today I am sharing a look at the new Craftin Desert Divas Mermaid Tail Dies.

This die is so unique and can only be found at Craftin Desert Divas.


I paired the die with an older CDD stamp set called Magical Wishes. I really love the mermaid on this set and knew she would be perfect for my card.

I started by preparing a panel of Yupo paper with alcohol inks. I used 3 colors from Ranger: Wild Plum, Turquoise, and Egg Plant. I let that dry and ran some of this pretty purple metallic cardstock through my Big Shot with the new Mermaid Tail Die. This die is great for a shaker card but it does not cut around the edge. I just fussy-cut the tail out of the cardstock and adhered it to my Yupo paper, then fussy -cut it again. (Note: Since this card has been made Craftin Desert Divas has come out with an SVG file that will cut out the tail with an electronic die cutting machine. You can fin the SVG HERE.)

Once the tail was completed I set it aside and inked up a panel with some Distress Oxide ink to create the sky. I used Fossilized Amber and Broken China being careful not to get to close to each other and create green. Once the panel was inked I die cut it with CDD Crazy Stitched Frames Dies.


For the ocean waves I used CDD Outdoor Landscape 2 Dies inked them with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink. I added my tail to the background and adhered the waves on top. 

My little mermaid and her accessories were colored with Copic markers and a little Clear Wink of Stella was added to her tail and seashells.

I have her resting on the an island that was die-cut from CDD Island Dies.

I added a sentiment from CDD Magical Wishes stamps and added some Nuvo Jewel Drops in Sea Breeze to complete the card.

Here is on last look at that shiny tail!
