Thoughts of You ~ CDD Creative Inspiration

Hello Friends,

Today I am sharing a card created as inspiration for the current Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Creative Inspiration. This month's theme is Thankful for Spring.


I decided to use CDD It's A Spring Thing stamps and the Hill Scene 2 Stencil for a clean and simple card.



I started by creating a background using the Hill Scene 2 Stencil with some Distress Oxide Inks. Using three different inks I kept my focal area to the lower right side of my card panel. I used Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn for the grass and for the clouds I chose Shaded Lilac. Once I was happy with the blended background I used the CDD Fancy Frame Die and Big Shot to cut my panel.

Before stamping I cut my images out using the Its A Spring Thing SVG file. With the help of a stamp positioner I stamped my images using Momento Tuxedo Black ink. The images were colored with Copic Markers.


I stamped a sentiment for an older CDD stamp set that is no longer available and arranged my images. I  popped up the butterfly and squirrel with some foam tape and added the orange flowers directly to the base. I took my panel and added a piece of fun foam that I had prepped with some Scrapbook.com Adheasive. Using a little bit of Lawn Fawn Glue I added the panel to my card base. 

To finish the card off I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers ad butterfly and a few CDD Shimmer Sequins.

I hope this card gives you a smile and little inspiration. If you would like to participate in this month's challenge created a project and use #CDDCREATIVEINSPIRATION on Instagram. We would love to see what you create!

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
