Summer Fun Shaker Card With DT Anna

Hi crafty divas! It's Anna here today with lots of SUMMER fun! Woo-hoo!



Now quick to making ^_^

I did a full front pannel shaker card with cute shape. So I started out from die cutting the front pannel which is actually to be the shaking part. For that I used my die cutting machine and CDD die.


I attached the accitate to both pieces using sticky stripes. Then I put sequins mix (mixed from multiple mixes) inside one part and using foam tape attached the second part to it. 


Then using the die I draw its shape on the piece of card stock and cut it out with the help of scissors.
(I also cut small piece that I'll later use as connection between pannels).

Using stamping tool I stamped the surfers' image on to pre-cut piece.


To apply distress inks I stamped the image once again on thin piece of papper and cut it out. I attached (using glue) it to the image. I also taped the edges of the whole piece to keep them white. After that I applied distress inks (peacock feather + salty ocean) hiding "sky".

I also did some water splashes.


When I removed all the masking parts I did the coloring. I used color pencils. (Kept the surf board white as I love lately to keep some parts white for a cool affect).


After that I stamped the sentiment (from the same set) straight on top.

This is when I used the pre-cut small piece to attach pannels together with glue. 


And here it's done! Looks so absolutely cute, isn't it? ^_^


Seen you soon with more inspiration!

Ocean Of Birthday Wishes With DT Laurie

Hello friends and welcome back!! Laurie back to share a fun Summer themed card with you!!  The past couple Craftin Desert Divas releases have had some absolutely amazing summer themed stamps and dies, so this card was so fun and quite easy to make!!


I started by picking the umbrella and the cute little mouse on her beach blanket from the Waving Hello stamp set and did a little masking to make them into one image.


I stamped the umbrella first, applied the mask and then stamped the mouse.


Always stamp what you want in the foreground first!!!  I coloured up this cutie with my alcohol markers.


For the background, I used the Bright Horizons Stencil along with Wild Honey, Scattered Straw and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks. 


This stencil is so beautiful and gives such a great result!


To complete my scene, I of course, used the Beach Scene Dies. This has to be one of my all time favorite and most used die sets!!  I cut the "beach" die out of white card stock and used Tea Dye Distress Ink for some color.  I cut the pretty scallop die from the Outdoor Landscapes Two Die set out of white card stock as well and used Peacock Feathers Distress Ink on it.  I ended up cutting a piece of vellum with this same die.


I fussy cut the sweet little mouse and thought I needed one more element to this card...a bird!  So, I die cut the bird from the Scene Builder Dies and applied a light grey ink.



I decided to cut down my stenciled background as well as all the die cut pieces with the largest of the Fancy Frames Die set.  This gave everything a beautiful scalloped edge.


I simply layered each piece onto the scalloped card panel using tape runner adhesive.  I did use foam tape for the mouse.


The sentiment comes from the Mermaid Lagoon set and was stamped on a thin strip of card stock which I angled at one end.


Of course, every card of mine has to have some sparkle and shine, so I added some clear sparkle to the pink areas and added Glossy Accents over top!!  And don't forget about the Shimmer Sequins!!


And that's my Summer Themed card for you today!!  I hope you enjoyed!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!!  Until next time...stay crafty!

Summer Inspired Card with Cheryl

It's Cheryl with the DT sharing a summer inspired card! The kids are out of school and it's time for some summer fun! That's why I made a card using the cute little critters from the "Away We Go" clear stamps!


First I cut out some printed cardstock using the largest die from the Fancy Frames die. Then I stamped the critters in the car onto cardstock and cut it out using the circle from the Stitched In Circle Die set. I also cut out banners for a sentiment in two contrasting colors using the Flag Banner Dies.


After coloring the stamped image, everything is ready to assemble!


Put it all together and there you have it! A card that's inspired by the summer! <3

Summer Inspired cards with Toni


Hello Beautiful Divas!  Toni here sharing yet more nautical cards--love this summer season!  


I started my cards by sponging my absolute favorite Distress Oxide combo of Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade onto a 100lb cardstock. Swoon, right?!


You may not have realized that the Mermaid Tail die cuts partially in that you end up with two perfectly usable options.  To take advantage of the scales, I dotted Ranger Multi Medium Matte on the backside of them after diecutting and before removing the pieces from the die. Next I placed the blue cardstock on the backside of a mousepad.  I then pressed the tail onto the cardstock.  

Any sort of slightly spongy surface would work--the point is to have some give so when you press down with the die and cuts, the metal cutting edges don't interfere with the glue being able to reach the cardstock base.  You then gently remove the die, maybe fix a couple of scales that didn't quite adhere, and voila, you have two gorgeous card fronts.


To finish up my cards, I:

Card 1
I spattered water on the inset tail then placed it on a glitter base.  I used the Hello Beautiful die for the sentiment. I really like how I was able to curve the hello to follow the tail.

Card 2
I used Wink of Stella on the embossed card.  You can see that best in the top photo.  I then used both parts of the Hello Beautiful die to pop up the sentiment.  That done, I used Ranger Multi Medium Matte to adhere Bubblegum and Fall Harvest sequins to the scales.  Blingy ding ding!



You have another couple of weeks to join us for the last CDD Moodboard Challenge (you can also tag #cddmonthly to play).
