Craftin Desert Divas Product Release Blog Hop Day 1

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














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

For my first card today I've used the new Magical Wishes stamp set. OMGosh how adorable is that set?? I told you that you were going to love it. Those images are simply amazing!! My card today I've made for my daughter McKenzie. The twins birthdays are May 1st,  so I already have both cards done. WooHoo!

My favorite color combo right now happens to be purple and teal, so I decided to make this card with those colors. My bottom 2 layers are made from the Fancy Frame Dies. The purple layer is watercolor paper that I've blended some Wilted Violets Tim Holtz Distress Ink on. The next layer up is my Fancy Stitched Label Dies  inked in Peacock Feathers Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

The mermaid is colored in with Copic markers. Her hair is colored with V05, V09, V15, V17. Her tail is colored with BG11, BG13 and BG49.

I wanted this card to look like a scene, so I decided to add some waves. I made them by blending some Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink on paper and then using my Outdoor Landscape Dies to cut out the waves. The other accessories like the fish, plants and coral are from my Under The Sea stamps and Under The Sea dies. Lastly I stamped the sentiment and it was done.

 My second card is sharing the new  Spots stamp.  I've taken my Banner Dies for the bottom layer and blended Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Squeezed Lemonade and Ripe Persimmon Distress Inks on it. Next I've used Stitched In Circle dies for my black and white layer.

I wanted it to look like he was standing on grass so I've used the new grass stamp from Build A Scene stamps and then colored it in with my Copics. Spots is also colored in with my Copics. Next I've added some CDD Coral Heart Sequins and the black sequins are from my Couture Sequins. To finish it I added the sentiment that comes with the Spot stamp.

  33. Another great Day at the Blog Hop...I thought I was confused yesterday on what stamps I needed to get, but the wonderful thing is they all seem to coordinate with one another which makes for a lot of creativity, in particularly still favoring the scenery's flexibility, but you need all those adorable animals to compliment it. You have a great team of people showcasing your stamps.
