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.

Floral Birthday with My Favorite Things

November 02, 2018 0 Comments
Hello and Wellcome to my blog!

Today I am sharing a birthday card I created for my mother-in-law for her birthday using products from My Favorite Things, Altenew, and Simon Says Stamp.

I don't know about you but I have ordered many products over the years and sometimes they sit for quite awhile before I have a chance to use them. That is the case with these products.

I started this project by stamping the MFT Painted Prints with Altenew Inks. I used Frosty Pink, Coral Berry, and Ruby Red for the flowers and Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades for the leaves. I die cut the flowers with the Coordinating Dies.

I used MFT Dynamics Flower Vase die to die cut a vase with white cardstock. I inked the vase with some Distress Oxide Ink in Spun Sugar and added a little gold detail with some gold thread from my stash.

I arranged my flowers and leaves in the vase and set it aside.

I took a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and embossed it with a Sizzix embossing folder to give my card some texture. I layered it on my card base and added a tag that I had splattered with a little Altenew Watercolor that coordinates with the ink I used for the flowers. To the tag I added more of the gold thread,

For the sentiment I used the Handlettered Happy Birthday Die from Simon Says Stamp. I die-cut the sentiment in white cardstock and heat embossed it a few times with some Recollections Sparkling Clear Gold Embossing Powder. This matched perfectly with the gold thread I had used on the vase and tag. The sentiment die is actually long so I cut it apart so that I could stack it on the card.

Once I had all of my elements completed I layered them on the card.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope to see you again!
