A picture makes every moment last forever

Hi and welcome, everyone! Lisa M.  from In The Crafting Cave bringing you the CDD daily post.
For today's daily post I want to show you a fun way to combine three stamp sets and create a unique gift. Using Bitty Blessings, Capture The Good Times, and Picture That Stamp Sets I created this card with one thought in mind, the gift of pictures. As I sit here and write this post, I realize the many different ways this can be used.  Give a gift certificate to the local photography studio, gift a camera or a scrapbook. See, the possibilities?

I love using different stamp sets to create one card. I feel like I'm  getting my monies worth then.

I don't do a lot of no-line coloring, so I thought this would be an excellent opportunity to give it a go. 
I like the look of it with this particular card. While this card is very fun and whimsical, the no-line coloring keeps the feel of the photo real, as real as it can. You could even take this a step further and add a background to the picture.

I use the Picture That Stamp Set for so many things. It's on my favorites list.

This card is super easy to create. You can find all the details along with a step by step tutorial on my blog, In The Crafting Cave

Hello everyone!! Laurie here to share a "Congrats" card with you.  This idea has been in my head for quite some time,  I just wasn't sure exactly how to execute it.  The Tag It stamp set is a great set to make tags, obviously.  But there is one particular image in that set that I thought I could do something "different" with.

I wanted to create a background pattern.  I picked some spring colors..yellow, pink, blue and orange.
This is the pattern I came up with...

After stamping my background, I used the largest scallop die from the Fancy Frames Die set to cut this panel.  This is where I got a little stuck with my design.  I really liked how this turned out, but it was far too plain!!  I used the Party Dies set and die cut the ribbon image from cardstock that matched the inks.  I adhered the ribbons to the inside of each "tag" image.

Of course, I didn't actually plan for a sentiment...for some reason it's always an afterthought :)
I lucked out and found that the "Congrats" from the Be Inspired stamp set fit well between the stamped tags.  To finish off, I die cut some scrap vellum with the Heart of Hearts die and adhered a few of the hearts to the card (I adhered them with Multi Medium Matte, the glue did not show at all!)
I added a few clear rhinestones to the centre of each ribbon for a bit of bling.

I hope you enjoyed today's project!!
Thanks for stopping by!!

Happy Birthday

Hi everyone, this is Jeanin from Craftin Desert Divas. Today I want to share this fun birthday shaker card with you today.

I used the cute lion from the It's All About Zoo stamp set as well as the balloons included in the set. I stamped the images on watercolor cardstock and colored them in with watercolor markers. 
For the shaker part of the card, I used a white top-folded notecard and cut out a piece from the top. I used a clear zip log bag to create the shaker pocket that was slightly larger than the part I cut out from the card. I filled the pocket with Emerald Isle sequins, closed it up and adhered it to the notecard.

To hide the sides of the shaker pocket, I adhered a larger and smaller white strip on top. I used the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from the Simply Said stamp set and stamped it in the bottom left corner of the card with black ink. To finish off the card I adhered the little lion to the card using 3D foam squares.

You can get more details on my blog HERE.

I really hope you enjoyed my card. I am looking forward to seeing your creations on the blog.

Oh slow life....

Hello there my lovely crafty friends... It's Jan here from handcraft hobby.  I am here today on Craftin Desert Divas Blog sharing with you my project I made using Peek A Boo Animals stamp set

Here's what I created :
I have to admit that I purposely made this card just to use this Sloth image from Peek A Boo Animals with particular sentiment "Oh Slow life" and altered the sloth's eyes to be half closed like the movie Zootopia.... I love Mr. Flash from the movie :)

This card is quite simple, I stamped the hat and masked it off then I stamped the Sloth toward the left side of my panel and hand-drawn the tree for him to hang on. I also stamped the Fence at the bottom right of my panel and also the Leave.  Both images are from Build A Scene stamp set.

I colored all images using various copic markers.  I used the 2nd largest die from Fancy Frame Dies to cut my panel out and mounted onto a blue card stock.

 Here's the closer look at the image
I used 2 stamps set to build my sentiment. One is from Wishful Thoughts stamp set for the words "Oh" and "Life". And another one from Slow mini stamp set for the word "Slow".  I used masking tape to mask off the words that I didn't want before I inked them up.

I then used my cloud stencil to do my background.  Picture Frame Dies become my favorite die to make my card base.  I cut the panel 3 times. One I dried embossed with woodgrain embossing folder and attached to another one of the panel.  The last one I scored about half an inch from the edge.  I used strong double sided tape at the flap and attached it to my front panel.  I then adhered my main panel using foam tape onto my woodgrain card base.  To finish off my card I sprinkled Moonlit Kisses sequins around the sentiment.  And my card was done!

Wishing You....

Hello my crafty friends!  Linda here to share with you a card I made for today's daily post on the CDD blog.

Here is the card that I made:

I started out by die cutting the flowers from watercolor paper using the Flowers in Bloom SVG Outline.  Then, I randomly placed the coordinating stamp on my MISTI, inked it up and stamped it on a piece of scratch paper:

Then I took the negative portion of the die cut and placed it around that stamped image so that it would have a perfect border:

Next, I placed the die inside the negative:

Then, I inked up the stamp again using Versamark ink and embossed it with white embossing powder:

As you can see, it is a full-proof way to perfectly stamp onto a die cut!

Next, I watercolored the flowers using a wet on wet technique:

I then popped it all up on a kraft background to make my flowers pop and stamped my sentiment using Versamark and brown dye inks.
