Teacher, You are the Best ~ Craftin Desert Divas April Release

April 14, 2019 0 Comments
Hello Friends! Today I am sharing a look at Craftin Desert Divas new Happy Girls Stamps and Moroccan Stencil.


For this card I started with a panel of Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock cut to 4.25"x5.5". I taped off the bottom third with some Thermoweb Purple Tape and used the new Moroccan Stencil on top. I blended the stencil with Distress Oxided Inks in the following colors: Picked Raspberries, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet. Once I was happy with the blend I went on the blend the ink into my letters that I die cut with the CDD Stitched Alphabet Dies.

I set everything aside to dry and stamped my images front new CDD Happy Girls Stamps. I colored my little teacher with Copic markers. For the chalkborad I carefully stamped just the outer portion with Momento Tuxedo Black ink and then I used Versamark ink to do the letters. I heat embossed the letters with some Wow Embossing Powder in Opaque Bright White. I colored the outside of my chalkboard with Copic markers but for the inside I blended some Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink.



To complete this card I popped up my images and letter onto some foam tape and added sentiment from the new CDD Mom & Me stamps. I added some white gel pen accents and some Ranger Glossy Accents to my little girl's glasses.

The new stamps and stencils will be available for purchase April 17 in the CDD Shop.

Mom, You Are the Best ~ Craftin Desert Divas April Release

April 12, 2019 3 Comments

Hello Friends! Long time no posting!

It's been a while since I posted. A family need has been keeping me away but I am happy to say that I an getting back into the swing of things

Today kicks off the new Craftin Desert Divas April Sneak Peeks

The first stamp set that I am featuring is the new Mom & Me Stamps.



Since this is a card for a special mom I decided that I had to do everything pink!!

I started by creating a background using the cute spots pattern that is included in the new Mom & Me stamps. The pattern was stamped in Spun Sugar Distress Ink and heat embossed in Clear Embossing Powder by Ranger. Once everything was cooled I die-cut the panel with CDD Crazy Stitched Frames Dies.

Next I colored up these cute little leopards and their momma using Copic markers and for a fun twist I chose shades of pink. I fussy-cut my image and set it aside.

I took the scalloped circle die from CDD Stitched in Circles dies and cut out the circle, I used the same Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink I used earlier and added some clouds using the CDD Hill Scene 2 Stencil. To this I stamped a sentiment from the new Mom & Me stamps using Cathrine Pooler's Icing on the Cake Ink and them stamped again using some Versamark ink, I heat embossed the sentiment using the same Clear Embossing Ink from Ranger.

Now that I had all of my elements ready I put the card together. I chose a nice chocolate cardstock for my card base and added some fun foam to the back of my background. I added some Baker's Twine  before adhering to the card base.

I then popped up my scalloped circle with some foam tape and added foam tape to my little family, as well. 

To finish off my card I added a bow using the same Baker's Twine and a few hearts that I had colored with a brown Copic Marker. I added some Ranger Glossy Accents and my card was complete!
