You're The Fairy Best!

Hi, there, divas! It's Andrea from Blissfully Scrappy here sharing a card inspired by this month's Social Media Challenge. Have you seen the current moodboard? The images and colors are soooo gorgeous! I hope you play along with us in CDD's Facebook gallery. You might even win a prize! :) That beautiful fairy and the sentiment are from the Magical Wishes set (All products are linked below). I die-cut the grass with the Outdoor Landscape Dies and adhered it to my ink-blended panel. I die-cut the entire panel with the largest Fancy Frames die. The banner for the sentiment is from the Flag Banner Dies. I die-cut one of the banners and used the negative to create a smaller banner, which I cut out with scissors.

 Here are the CDD products I used on my card:

Missing You Pig Time

Hello everyone! Juhi here, today I'm sharing a card I made using the super adorable Farm Living Stamp set.
I used the Fancy Frames die to create the background panel which I have distressed with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. The cute pig image is stamped on watercolor paper, colored with water based markers and fussy cut.
I just love the soulful expression on the pig's face, I think it goes perfectly with the sentiment!
Thank you so much for stopping by !

Hello everyone! It's Lindsay from the Design Team, and I am here with you today to share my card for this month's Social Media Challenge. If you haven't yet, make sure to head over to the Craftin' Desert Divas Facebook group to get all the details on this month's challenge, and make sure to play along for your chance to win! It is a great month to get started, the mood board is absolutely GORGEOUS!! Here is a link to the Facebook Group, so you can join in on all the fun and check out the official rules for the challenge in the Files tab! Today I am sharing a video on creating my first card for this month's challenge. Make sure to check it out below to see how I interpreted this month's mood board!

First, I needed to cut out a panel from white card stock using the largest rectangle die in the Crazy Stitched Frames die set from CDD. For my stamping I used the owl and tree from the Build a Scene stamp set. I first stamped the owl in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then masked him off with a mask created from Inkadinkado masking paper. Next, I stamped the tree to make it appear as if the owl was sitting in the tree. After masking the tree, the edges of the panel with painter's tape and a hilly border with scrap paper, I brought out my Distress Inks.


Using Distress Inks and a mini ink blending tool I started blending on a sunset sky. I was inspired by the mood board photos, so I used some Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, and a bit of Black Soot. When I was happy with the sky I pulled up the hilly border mask and added a tiny bit of Peacock Feathers to give the appearance of snowy hills. With my inking done, I removed the masks and started coloring in my images with my alcohol markers. I kept the coloring very simple, but did add white "snow" on top of the branches and along the snow mounds on the ground with a white gel pen. I also used a purple and hot pink alcohol markers to add shading around the outside of the tree.


With my coloring finished pulled out the "Simply Said" sentiment set from CDD and stamped "thanks" in the bottom right hand corner on the panel with black dye ink. Then, it was time to start putting the card together and that only took a few steps. I first adhered the panel onto an A2 card base with fun foam and double sided adhesive. Finally, I popped on a few sequins from the Pizazz sequin mix (also from CDD) using glossy accents to adhere and my Quickstik tool to speed up the process.


So now it's time to head on over to the Craftin' Desert Divas Facebook Group and enter a card of your own into the challenge! As long as there are 8 entries, everyone is eligible to win a prize. First place is a $15 gift card to the CDD Shop, Second place is your choice of two digital stamps, and third, your choice of one digital stamp!

  Hello Lovelies, today I am sharing a cute little card that depicts barnyard animals and starry skies. I am enjoying the diverse animal stamps at Craftin Desert Divas so I couldn't resist inking up another CAS card for you all.
 I happen to love horses, I think sheep are cute and I am not sure about cows as I don't know any! These fun stamps are great for any scene you want to create. The products I used are as follows: Pocket Pieces Hello Dies, Fancy Frame Dies, and Barnyard Stamps. I love having a few dies for the base of a card, it just lends to a more finished look. The star and word dies were popped for a more 3D effect so the card had just a bit more visual interest. Don't forget to stop by the blog for daily inspiration and join in on the monthly challenge #CDDMONTHLY.

Coffee With You Is My Favorite Perk!

Hi, everyone! It's Kevin and I am so excited to be posting my very first post as a member of the CDD Design Team! For my project today I decided to make a gift card/treat holder. I plan to insert a Starbuck's gift card to give my girlfriend for Valentine's Day, but you could definitely use it for some chocolates or anything else that fits inside. Check it out! phonto-5.jpg I've never made anything like this before, but it was super easy to do with the Fancy Frame Dies. I used the largest scalloped rectangle to die cut some heavy weight white card stock. Then I scored both of the short ends at 1 and 3/8 inches. This made them able to overlap so I could add some adhesive to secure the gift card. Then I stamped a sentiment and two of the ADORABLE coffee images on the front from the Coffee Break stamp set. I colored them in with my Zigs. I also took a blue Zig to color the scalloped edges to finish it off. Thanks for stopping by to check out my first posting! Have a great day!
