Halloween Scene Stencil

 Hey Divas!!! Design Team Member EK here today to share a ridiculously large number of ways to craft with the new Halloween Scene Stencil

  I was so excited when CDD released this stencil last month, having come to paper crafting from Mixed Media Art. I am actually quite a stencil junkie. But there I quickly learned that many card crafters are intimidated by stencils. EK Gorman CDD 9:21 3
So I thought it would be fun to compile a massive list of different ways to use a stencil when card crafting. I will warn you, this list is not exhaustive. There are so many other things you can use with stencils, and even as I type this, I am realizing all these really cool things I could add to the list. EK Gorman CDD 9:21 2

I also fully assembled ten different cards showing how to finish off the stenciled background using CDD's new Zombody and Frightfully Sweet stamp sets.

  EK Gorman CDD Critters I whipped up a video showing all these different techniques. It is a really long video, so I will list all the different techniques and when they happen below.

Distress Inks: :40 Distress Oxides: 2:15 Ghosting Inks: 4:08 Ink Transfers: 5:38 Spray Inks: 6:58 Spray Ink Transfers: 7:50 Watercolors: 8:25 Watercolor Markers: 10:18 Watercolor Powders: 12:13 Paint: 13:18 Splatter Paint: 15:00 Paint Smudging: 17:30 Textured Paint: 18:37 Mica Powder: 21:16 Embossing Powder: 23:28 Acrylic Mediums/Molding Paste: 24:50 Mousse (metallic textured pastes): 26:23 Crackle Medium: 29:21 Embellishments: 31:18 Tracing: 32:38
Ek Gorman CDD1 I hope this gives you some new ideas of how to play with stencils! Show us how you use the new Halloween Scene Stencil on CDD's Facebook Gallery, using one of these ideas or a completely new one. The Design team really wants to see how you are playing with this new line in the CDD collection!

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Hello Everyone!!! It is Lindsay from the DT and I am so excited to be sharing a new card and quick tip video with you today!! Just a few days ago, a brand new digital stamp was added into the Craftin Desert Divas Shop. As soon as I seen this adorable little image, I knew I wanted to create a card with it! Here's a peek at the new Pumpkin Spice Latte Digital Stamp that I used on my card today!!!! Oh, and it's only $0.99!!!!

I first printed off the digital image and sentiment using my laser printer, onto a piece of white card stock. For the sentiment, I used the largest plain stitched rectangle in the Fancy Frame die set to cut out a panel with the sentiment on the bottom. For the coffee cup, I made it a bit larger and quickly colored it in with my alcohol markers and then fussy cut right at the stamped lines.
Finished Card 2
Before adhering the coffee cup to the sentiment panel, I added a little Peacock Feathers Distress Ink to the top of the panel to create some shadow. After I was happy with the distress ink bending, I added the coffee cup to the top of the panel with double sided adhesive and fun foam. Next, I added the sentiment panel to a larger kraft die cut, from the same die set, and then both panels directly onto an A2 side folding card base!
Finished Card 4
I thought this card would be perfect for holding a little gift card ( to the recipient's favorite coffee stop) so I quickly grabbed my Fancy Frames Die Set and made a little pocket on the inside of the card! Watch the quick tip video below to see how I did it!!!

I hope you enjoyed the quick tip video and a look at this adorable new digital stamp and how I used it to create a CAS and fun card!! If you're interested in the Craftin Desert Divas products I used on my card today, you will find them all linked below!! Until next time, Happy Crafting!!!

Let's Hang Out Soon

Hello there!
It's DT Michelle, just stopping by to share my daily post with you.

Today I am using the stamp set Harvest Happiness...I am so loving this set!!!!
First I stamped the images with memento black ink than colored them with Copic Markers. I used shades B05, 14, 16, 18
C3, 4, 5, 7
E23, 25, 29, 31, 33
G24, 28
R27, 39
Y11, 15, 15
also 100 and colorless blender.
I added some white accents with a gel pen than fussy cut these adorable images. Now onto the background... I masked the back panel and sponged it with salty ocean distress ink. Than I inked up another piece of cardstock with fossilized amber and twisted citron distress inks. I die cut the panel with Harvest Border Dies. I added a few splashes of water to achieve the speckled look. Than I added my sentiment.

After the panels were assembled, I arranged this sweet little scene!!!!
Thanks for taking a peek!!! Hope you enjoy!!!

Thankful For You

Hello Friends Waleska here... The fall season is almost here and for my card today I used one of the cute critters from the new Timber stamp set from this past release, this set is full of images perfect for fall projects, all the characters on this set are just too adorable.


This cute critter is picking up leaves and I die cut many times the one small leave that comes in the inside scalloped circle dies to create 3D leaves, I colored them with oxide ink spiced marmalade and peacock feathers.  I also used peacock feathers oxide ink for the background sky of the scene.  For the ground I used the outdoor landscape dies and colored the piece with vintage photo oxide ink. 

I also die cut from brown cardstock the wheelbarrow from the Garden Accesories Dies and I filled it with leaves.  I frame the scene with the big Inside Scalloped Rectangle die and colored it with spice marmalade oxide ink, to have the same color combination in the card.  For the sentiment I used the Flag Banner Dies.  The cute fox looks so cute picking leaves! I colored the fox with different gray markers.

I hope you can be inspired to start creating your fall cards, with this set.... have a great day!

Thanks From All Of Us

Hello everyone!  Jan's here from handcrafthobby.  Im excited to be back on Craftin Desert Divas' Blog today sharing with you my project and I'd like to take this opportunity to invite you all to join us for our September Mood Board Challenge.

Here is what I made for you

and here is our September Mood Board Inspiration Photo

Click here to join us at CDD Facebook Gallery

When I saw this mood board photo inspiration I immediately thinking of flowers and orange and gold.  That's what I decided to do with this card.

Flowers In Boom stamp is one of my all time favorite stamp from CDD.  I kept coming back to color different flowers that this set has to offer.

I began by cut my watercolor paper panel from Picture Frame dies and started arranged my orchid stamp images at the bottom right of my main panels. I heat embossed with gold embossing powder and I did masking all the flowers when they overlapping each other.

I colored them with my peerless watercolors and I love how vibrant they are.   I wanted to put the word die cut "Thanks" from Gretting Word dies and decided to cut it from the piece of paper that I heat embossed with the same gold embossing powder.  I also used the sentiment "from all of us" from Tiny Sentiment stamp and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder as well.

Before I attached the sentiments on I did some splatters of colors for some interests.

I hope you like it and hope you can join us for some fun and prizes.

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
