Happy Halloween! May Your Treats Be Sweet

Hello Everyone!  
Donna K from @Studio 307 with you today on this spooky fun Saturday. 
I thought a Halloween card would be quite appropriate 
for today's post.  I mailed all of my goodies out earlier
this week except this one which will be hand delivered tonight
with some yummy candies.

I had a great time using the Fright Night Set this season.

There are endless options with this set.

The In Line Die set was really handy to create a unique
border for my image area.

I love the cut out circles along with the dash/dot stitch.

Whatever it is you are doing this weekend...I hope it's awesome!

Good morning everyone!! Lisa B. here with you today to share a very simple yet elegant card and tag combo I whipped up.  I love being able to make things like this in mass quantities.

First I cut out two black scalloped mats using the die from Fancy Frame die set.  Then I cut out two pieces of watercolor paper using the stitched rectangle die that comes with that set as well. I embossed a deer that I thought was very simple yet pretty on it's own.  I did pretty much the same process for the card and the tag as far as putting it all together.  The sentiments and mistletoe on the card came from the newly released Tis' The Season stamp set.  

To give the tag some strength I cut out four of the tag toppers from the Pocket Pieces Hi die set in black as well as one in the gold & black pattern.  I glued 2 black and the gold one together to adhere to the tag.  Using the last black one I adhered it to the back to finish it off nicely.  
** I would like to mention that I cut out another white scalloped rectangle die to adhere to the back of the tag if someone would like to write on it.  However, I forgot to take a picture of it to show you.**

I finished the combo off with some CDD Couture Sequins and walah, I was done!!

Thank you so much for stopping by the Craftin' Desert Divas blog today.  I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy card/tag combo.

Have a great day!

Happy Crafting!

Don't Be A Grinch

Hello CDD Fans!  DT Steph here from Paper Piecing by Steph sharing with you a card I actually dreamed up! I used the newly released Rudy & Tis the Season stamp sets.  For the present I used Owl-idays stamp set, the white stitched layer the image is stamped on is from Pocket Pieces HI Dies, the striped layer and banner are from Mix It Up dies.  I colored Rudy with my Spectrum Noir markers, I paper pieced the present with pattern paper.  I added Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to Rudy's hat and bow on the present.  I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder, scored the banner so that it folded to make it 3 dimensional, and mounted it with fun foam to pop it up.  Without further ado here he is.....

You've Been Boo'd

Hello Crafters!
This is Lori with got2bcrafting!
Today I wanted to share a project I created for my girls so they could "BOO" some of their friends this Halloween.

Here is one of the "BOO" door hangers I made:

 I filled the inside of the box with a bag of delicious Halloween candy and added a tag using the tag die from "Pocket Pieces Hi Dies" and then stamped Happy Hallo-Scream from the Hallo-Scream stamp set.

The BOO image is from the "BOO" stamp set:

Two For Tuesday Showcasing Deer Friends

It's Two For Tuesday and we are featuring Designers Giorgia and Kristin. Every Tuesday we will have a Diva Dual where 2 of our designers will collaborate and make a project using the same chosen stamp image. 

This Tuesday they chose to design with the deer and fox images from the Deer Friends stamp set. 

Giorgia- Ciocio Scrap

 Hi this is Giorgia here. This post is really special to me because I decided to do the Two for Tuesday with my sweet friend Kristin! I don't know if you all know that Kristin and me are friends since a while. We met thanks to Instagram and we became great friends. We chat almost every day: no Kristin no happy day! Ahah! 

I know she's fab at coloring with Copics so I tried to challenge her! But my coloring is really simple and quick! We chose the cute deer and sweet foxy from the Deer Friends set and I decided to put them inside the new scallop circle as they were inside some Christmas ornaments! More or less.. ahah! I added a little bow and heat embossed the sentiment "Christmas Blessings" in white!

Kristin- Eveolith
Hello everyone! Kristin from the Eveolith blog here. Giorgia and I used the
 fox and deer from the stamp set, Deer Friends

I colored all of the images using various Copic markers. For the sentiment, I used a partial sentiment from the stamp set, 'Tis The Season, Holiday Hugs!
For the background I used two Distress Inks and drew snow on the panel with a white gel pen. I stamped a bunch of snowflakes from the new stamp set, Chilly, and I used a present from Owl-idays!

Here are the CDD Products used:
