Plant Seeds Of Kindness In Your Garden...

Hi everyone DT  Natalie here,
I'm up on the blog today to share my newest card, where I used the adorable Garden bug stamps , aren't they the sweetest?!

I have been loving working with the new oxide inks and I thought they would be perfect to get me started. To make this lovely garden scene card, I cut two rectangles using the fancy frame dies. The first rectangle I used to make a sky blending the oxide inks, faded jeans and broken china. The second I used for the mud, blending oxide inks vintage photo and walnut stain. To give it an added texture, I sprinkled water on the two leaving for a few seconds then drying off with some paper towel. Next it was time to cut the soil to give the card extra layers using the garden border die. I also cut out some flowers from the garden accessories die and clouds using rainbow die coloring them with Copic markers.
Here you can see the 3 layers of soil and how I placed the flower in the cut outs so it looks like it's really growing out of the soil! The bee and ladybird were coloured with copic markers, then finished off with a Copic liner pen and white gelly roll pen to make the eyes really pop and add three cute dots on the cheeks.
When the card was put together, I added to some water droplets to give the effect of it raining and the watering can sprinkling using glossy accents. I hope you like it. I can't wait to colour in these cuties again they will forever be a firm favourite in my stamp collection!

Totally Awesome

Hello everyone! DT Ale here sharing a card that I made . This card is a bit different from the cards that I am usually doing , and really enjoyed a lot the process.
So for this card I started by taking a piece of watercolor paper and just playing with colors. I wasn't sure if I would like the end result but after messing a bit around and drying the paper in between the coloring I really loved how this turned out.
After the color was completely dried I die cut my panel using Crazy Stitched Frame dies and then took the word dies from Greeting word dies and die cut it twice to have some dimension to the words.
Next I adhered the words to the main panel using Multi Medium Matte and adhered the panel to the card base using foam tape.
Also I am in love with the Nuvo drops - Morning dew the are just amazing and Craftin Desert Divas are having it on the shop :)
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a lovely day

Wishing you a lifetime of happiness

Hi everyone, DT member Jeanin here with my last post as a design team member for Craftin Desert Divas. I've decided to step down for the upcoming term but I had such a wonderful time at this incredible and talented team!

For my final card I created a rather unusual one for this time of year. But I guess everybody needs some cooling down during these hot summer months. I printed these cute penguins on some mix media card stock and colored them in with Zig markers.

I decided to create a distressed background using different shades of blue. I then die cut the distressed card stock with the medium square of the Inside Scalloped Square dies and keep both the frame as well as the inside piece. Using some foam tape, I adhered the square on a standard white card base and also adhered the penguins in the center.

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment "Wishing you a lifetime of happiness" with black ink below the square. 

I hope you enjoyed this last card from me. Have a great day!

Accio Coffee!

Hello and welcome! Tatiana is here today from Tatiana Craft And Art and I'm sooooo excited to share with you my first release project featuring fabulous Coffee Wizards stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas June release!!!

Coffee Wizards stamp set is so amazing and I LOVE the fun sentiments you can find in it and, of course, it's so perfect for creating adorable scenes with the cute mischiefs, including some interactive elements to emulate a little bit of magic! Plus it's fantastic for all coffee lovers friends!!!

My choice was a shaker card made out of CDD Rainbow Die set. I placed the coffee bag on one side of the rainbow and the fox wizard on the other and then filled the shaker part with some little accessories images from the same Coffee Wizards stamp set along with some clear sparkling sequins creating the illusion of magic! I started by die-cutting the rainbow on an A2 size piece of a white card stock, inkbelding some blue ink around, coloring the rainbow die itself with copic markers and gluing it back directly to the card base. Then I stamped the cute fox wizard, the sentiment and a bunch of small images from Coffee Wizards set and colored them with copic markers as well. Finally I die-cut "Accio Coffee" Greeting on a cloud that comes with the same Rainbow Die set I used before for the shaker part and fussy-cut with my scissors the colored stamps!

Assembling the card, I applied a piece of clear acetate to the back part of my front panel and once filled the shaker part, popped the panel on a foam tape. I also added some dimension to the clouds, the coffee bag and the cute fox wizard and just couldn't resist to add a few matching sequins as a final touch! That all for today! Hope you like this bright and cheerful card! As always thanks so much for stopping by!
