With Sympathy

Good morning!  Lisa B. here today to share with you a project I made for my Throwback Thursday post here at Craftin' Desert Divas. I used Simply Said and Tissue Time stamp sets.  I embossed the sentiments on the watercolored background on the front of the card.

I replaced the flowers on the tree with some of CDD's Pretty Petals sequins.  If you haven't done so already, you need to stop on by and check out the HUGE selection of sequins CDD now carries.  Lots of fun and different styles.

Front of the card using Simply Said.

 Inside of the gatefold card. Sentiment is from Tissue Time.

Have a great day, and Happy Crafting!

Buzzing By....

Hello friends! This is Tina from The Scrappin Rabbit blog 
and today I am sharing a couple shaped cards I made.

I made a pair of hexagon shaped cards with a bumble theme. I embossed them both with a honeycomb embossing folder. The first card features the adorable bees from the Sending Love stamp set. I stamped the "thanks" sentiment from the Short & Sweet Tags set inside the flutter heart. I also used the stitched oval die from the CDD Banner dies.

For the second card I used this cutie pie bee and a sentiment from the
Just Bugcause stamps. I glittered up the wings and finally added some bows.

Here are the stamps and dies that I used and you can
find them at the Craftin Desert Diva's shop!!

Hi friends, Leah Schaeffer here to share a watercoloring project with you. 
I used the sweet Just For Mom stamp set and really did
tailor this card for my mom. She taught me the love of art
and so I wanted to make her a card that had more of an artistic feel to it. 
Watercolor is super popular these days
and we would love to see any Craftin Desert Diva examples
you may have made so feel free to share those
with us at our CDD gallery on Facebook

Hope you have a wonderful day!
