Special Kind of Nut ~ Craftin Desert Divas August Release Blog Hop

Hello Crafty Friends! I'm so glad you are visiting me today!

As you can see this blog post is part of the Craftin Desert Divas August Release Blog Hop.

If you arrived from Jackie's Blog then you are in the right place. If you just happened to stop by and would like to to start this hop from the beginning then head on over to the CDD Blog.

I am so excited about this new release! Crisp leaves, fall friends and more make this release absolutely darling!

My card today features this cute little squirrel from the CDD Favorite Nut Stamps. I colored my images with Copic markers and fussy-cut them out.

I created a background scene with the new CDD Hill Scene 2 Stencil using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and die-cut my panel with CDD Fancy Frames Dies. Added to the cloud background is the a few trees on a grassy hill that we die-cut with CDD Fall Border Dies. I inked the ground with Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Inks and colored the trees with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I added the border to my background panel and put my Fancy Frames dies over it to give it the same stitched edge as my panel.

To complete this fall scene I used CDD Blooming Tree Stencil on my card base.  Distress Oxide Inks used were: Gather Twigs, Mowed Lawn, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade.

I added foam tape to my stitched frame and pop dots to my stamped images to give some dimension to my card. Some twine and sequins were the perfect touch.

You can find all of the August Release in the Craftin Desert Divas Shop. Be sure to check it out!
