Sending Love with Craftin Desert Divas

January 25, 2019 1 Comments
Hello Friends!

Today I am sharing a card featuring products from Craftin Desert Divas.

I adore these little mice from the P.S. I love You stamps stamps and had to make another card with them.

To create this card I first started by cutting a panel of Simon Says Stamp Fog Cardstock to fit an A2 sized card base.

I used CDD Inside Scalloped Oval Dies to create a window for my cute little mice and then ran it through my die cutting machine with the CDD Heart Galore Stencil and an embossing mat. I really love the effect this gives and it's another use for your stencils.

Once I had the car base prices ready it was time to stamp and color this cute little mouse couple from CDD P.S. I Love You stamps. This little couple were stamped onto some XPress It cardstock with some SSS Intense Black Ink. This combination is my preferred method to use when coloring with Copic Markers.

Once I had my couple colored I fussy-cut them out leaving their tails behind then stamped them again on another piece of white cardstock so that I would have their outlines.

I placed the stamped cardstock in the window of the Fog card panel and added the frame for the oval. I popped my little mice that I had colored up with some foam squares and added to the outline images. Now they have tails!!

I added this layer onto a card base and stamped my sentiment in some Versa Fine Onyx Black Ink.

I added a few dots with a black multilines and adhered the heart to the frame. To finish the card off I gave the heart some spark with some Clear Wink of Stella and added some Glossy Accents.

I hope you enjoyed my card from today!

Hope to see you soon!

Be a Panda! ~ Craftin Desert Divas January release

January 21, 2019 0 Comments
Hello and welcome to my blog!

Today I have another look at Craftin Desert Divas new Panda-Bilities stamps.

I adore this new stamp set. It has the cutest pandas!

For my card I started with a Neenah 110# card base. I taped off a section to do some ink blending with the CDD Hill Scene 2 Stencil and some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink. I love the pink clouds and really think it gives the card a whimsical look.

I cut  out my pandas with my Silhouette Cameo and the Panda-Bilities SVGs then stamp stamped the shapes with the new Panda-bilities stamps. I colored them with Copic Markers and set them aside. I created the bamboo using the bamboo shoot found in CDD Panda Pals stamps (no longer available). I used some masking to create the different lengths. 

Once all of my elements were colored I arranged them on my card front and stamped my sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

I adhered the bamboo directly to the card base and used foam squares to pop up my pandas. I finished the card off with some clear sequins and added some Clear Wink of Stella to the butterfly.

Adventure Awaits ~Craftin Desert Divas January Release

January 18, 2019 0 Comments

Hello and welcome to my blog!

Today I am featuring a card I created with Craftin Desert Divas new Pirate Pals Stamps.

This is a fun set that includes critters dressed up like pirates.

To create my scene I started by inking up a background using the CDD Burst Stencil and Distress Oxide inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, and Wild Honey. I blended these onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock. Once I was happy with the blend I splattered on some water droplets and soaked it up with a. dry cloth. For added sparkle I added some Perfectly Gold Perfect Pearls.

Next I worked on the ocean waves that were diet with CDD Ocean Border Dies and Outdoor Landscape Dies. I used Distress inks here, as well. The colors I used are Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, and Salty Ocean. I also cut out the sand from the CDD Outdoor Landscape Dies and added some texture with my Copic Markers.

I die cut each of the background components with the CDD Torn Paper Dies and adhered them together. I added the palm tree to the scene. The palm tree is included in the CDD Island Dies. I cut this from white card stock and colored the tree with my Copic Markers.

Lastly, I added the cute little bunny pirate, treasure, and flag from the new CDD Pirate Pals Stamps and a sentiment from the CDD Away We Go stamps. I mounted everything on my card base the that complete the card.

The January Release is now available for purchase in the CDD Shop.

Oh the Panda-bilities ~ Craftin Desert Divas January Release

January 13, 2019 0 Comments
Hello Friends! Welcome to my blog!

Today's project features the new Craftin Desert Divas Panda-bilities Stamps.

This set has the cutest pandas and sentiments!

For my card I started by ink blending my background. I used my neglected Ranger Distress Inks to create a night sky.  The colors I used are Milled Lavender, Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord, Faded Jeans, and Black Soot. I forgot how beautiful the regular Distress Inks are and really fell in love with them again! To create my stars I watered down a little bit of gesso and I mixed a little bit of Perfect Pearls in some water and spatters both on. I set my panel aside to dry and worked on the other elements I wanted for this card.

To create the grass I die cut some white cardstock with CDD Outdoor Landscape 2 dies and inked blended the grass with Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover Distress Ink.

I took a white panel and die cut a window using CDD Inside Scalloped Circle Dies. Now my card was ready to assemble.

I attached my ink blended panel to my card base added some of the grass and popped up the adorable little pandas from the new CDD Panda-bilities stamp wit some thin foam squares. I add another bit of grass to my window panel and popped it all up with some more foam squares.

Lastly I added a sentiment from the Panda-bilities stamp and embellished my card with a few sequins.

Be sure to check out the CDD Blog for more projects featuring the new Panda-bilites stamps.

Get your list ready! All of the new products will be available for purchase Jan 16, 2019 in the CDD Shop!

ARRRGH! Its Your Birthday! ~ Craftin Desert Divas January Release

January 12, 2019 0 Comments

Hello Friends! Welcome to my blog!

Today I am sharing a fun birthday card featuring Craftin Desert Divas new Pirate Pals Stamps.

This stamp set is filled with cute critters dressed up as pirates and it has a few accessories, as well. They are perfect for pirate themed cards or layouts.

To create this card I stated by inking up my background with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and CDD Hill Scene 2 Stencil to create my clouds.  I created the ocean by die cutting the waves with CDD Outdoor Landscape 2 Dies and sponging them with some Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink. I sprinkled the waves with a little bit of water to create some interest.

I used CDD Stitched Alphabet Dies and some wood grain cardstock that I created with this background stamp.  I cut the letters out several times and stacked them to give my card some dimension.

The cute little critter and the message in the bottle, both from CDD Pirate Pals, were colored with Copic Markers and added to the card.

The sentiment I stamped is from an older CDD stamp set that is no longer available but I felt it was perfect for this card.

Be sure to check out all of the sneak peeks not the Craftin Desert Divas Blog and the Facebook Gallery.

I'll be back tomorrow with another peek!
