Ghostly Good Time ~ Craftin Desert Divas September Release

September 27, 2018 0 Comments

Hello friends! Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Today I have a mother Halloween card featuring the new Craftin Desert Divas Ghostly Good Time Stamps.

This tamp set has the cutest critters all dressed up for Halloween.

To create this card I began by creating a square panel and doing some ink blending with Distress Oxide inks. I used the following: Carved Pumpkin, Mowed Lawn, Wilted Violet, and Black Soot. Once I had everything blended to my linking I flicked on a little water and blotted it up with a towel. I added some flicks of black acrylic paint for more interest. I covered the panel with some Clear Wink of Stella to give it some shine.

While my ink blended panel was drying I dry embossed a white piece of cardstock with an old Cuttlebug Embossing Folder to give my card some texture.

I layered all of my panels onto my card base and added this cute little fox from the new CDD Ghostly Good Time Stamps. I colored her up with my Copic markers and red her up on my card. I added a heat embossed sentiment from this same set and scattered some Trick or Treat Sequins across the front and that competes my card.

Head on over to Craftin Desert Divas and check out all of the new stamps, dies, and stencil from this release.

I hope to be share more with you soon!

Until then,
Happy Crafting!!

Fang-tastic ~Craftin Desert Divas September Preview

September 22, 2018 0 Comments

Hello friends!

I'm so excited to share my first halloween card of the season!

Today I am showcasing some new products from Craftin Desert Divas.

This card is created with Craftin Desert Divas new Ghostly Good Times stamps and the fabulous Spider Web Stencil.

I started by creating a background with my Distress Oxide Inks. I used Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, and Black Soot. Once I was happy with the background I spritzed it with some water and blotted it up with a paper towel.

To speed up the drying time I hit it with my heat gun and went onto stenciling.

For the stenciling I used the new CDD Spider Web Stencil and some Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonshine. This stuff is fabulous and really gives that spider web a little something extra.

I allowed my background to dry and went on to color my little vampire from the new Ghostly Good Times Stamps. This set has the cutes critters all dressed up for Halloween.

To finish up my card, I used CDD Fancy Frames Dies to cut out my background, heat embossed my sentiment in white, popped up my vampire with foam tape, and added some CDD Hocus Pocus Sequins.

The September Release will be in the CDD Shop on Tuesday, September 25, 2018.

Thank you for joining me today!

See you soon!

We can all agree, handmade gifts are the best - right?
There's something extra special about creating something from scratch and seeing the look on the recipient's face when they realize just how much thought and care went into everything from the wrapping to the card. 

Today I am sharing a process video of the gorgeous card and matching gift bag you see pictured. I love how you can use heat embossed images to create beautiful backgrounds to coordinate together! Click the "play" button below to watch my project from start-to-finish.
