Craftin Desert Divas Is Closing


It's with a heavy heart, that I came to a decision to close Craftin Desert Divas. Many of you are not aware, but I've been dealing with some family difficulties for quite some time now.


I normally don't share much of my personal life, but I wanted to let you know the reason I've had to make such a difficult decision.

My Mother has been sick with Alzheimer's for quite some time and as it progresses, I really need to be there for my Mother and Father.

I hope you all understand that family comes before anything and I don't want to have regrets later that I didn't do as much as I could or spend the extra time with her.

Thank you for all the support you've shown me over the years. I'm having a going out of business sale and would greatly appreciate your final support in helping me clear out my inventory. I'll be clearing out my craft room and turning it back into a spare bedroom for any future needs.

Thank you so much!

Sincerely,

Tara

So what are you waiting for?  Click here to join our CDD Facebook Gallery Group.

For June, we have fun theme for you to play along and it's super easy.

"Cute Critters"

 Here is what I made for you.

It's a simple card and easy to do background.  In this card I used the adorable mouse from Waving Hello stamp set and sentiment is from Harvest Happiness stamp.  Decorative frame is Crazy Stitched Frame dies.  
And here is how I made it.


Find any round object around you or you can use circle die but for my convenience I just grabbed the circle bow that I put small little images when I do fussy cutting.  I don't have big piece of masking paper so I used typing paper.


I wrapped around my white card base using partial area of the negative circle space.  I used distress oxide in squeezed lemonade for the sun, salty ocean for the sky and combination of salty ocean and cracked pistachio for the sea.   Look not so pretty right? :)


I stamped the mouse image outside the circle and began to color him.

Mouse - E31, E33
Hat, Short and Cup - R35, R29, R89
Sand - E53, E55, E57, E31


I used gray shade markers T5, T7, T9 and 100 to fill in the gap between the sky and sea.  On the left side of the mountain I used T5 since it's nearer to the sun and darker shade of Ts markers when it's further away.

I cut my panel with Crazy Stitched Frame dies (my favorite) and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder onto black card stock.


To finish up the card I used white gel pen for small waves at the sea and on the sand areas.  I also put light blue stickles on the waves for some sparkling.  I then used the red sequins from Berry Christmas sequins mix and attached them here and there.  
I hope you like it and decide to play along with us.


Our Design Team members will start sharing their #cddcreativeinspiration projects thru out the month.  Here are some of them.


Hope you'll join our fun!  Have a Wonderful day.
