January Product Release Blog Hop Day1

Welcome to the CDD January Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop. 
All stamps & Dies are in the CDD Shop and now available for purchase HERE.


















Here's what I've created for you...



I just love the new Heart Of Heart Die and had to use it again for my hop project. This is a really simple card and came together quite easily. I first started with some watercoloring on watercolor paper. I've used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Picked Raspberry for this card. I then used the new Heart Of Heart Dies and Fancy Frame Dies on that layer.

I also found some red glitter paper and adhered it behind that layer. To finish up the card I heat embossed the sentiment from Say It Big in white and it was done.

I just adore this sweet gopher, so I had to use it several times in my project. LOL

I stamped and then colored him with my Copic markers. My background is blended with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I've used Salty Ocean, Cracked Pistachio, Shabby Shutters and Mowed Lawn. I got this color combination from DT member Bianca Instagram account. I call her the blending Queen and I think the name says it all!! After blending the distress inks my watercolor paper, yes I like to blend them on watercolor paper. I think it's much easier than regular cardstock.  I then used my  Fancy Frame Dies to cut out that layer. I did hand cut a small black layer to put behind it.

To finish up the card I've used Outdoor Landscape Dies for the grass and The Sky Is The Limit dies for the clouds. Stamped some sentiments on the clouds and it was complete. I just love how this card turned out. Sentiments are from the new Popped Up and Sweet Wishes stamp sets.
