You Are Refreshing

Hello everyone...

Jan's from handcrafthobby here.  I am so glad to be back on Craftn Desert Divas' Blog  to share with you my little project.

Here is what I made for you.

I don't know about you but for me I eat watermelon quite often due to the weather here in Singapore.  So I hope this little card can give you virtual refreshing in wherever you are. :)

I began by cutting my main panel from white cardstock using Crazy Stitched Frame dies using the largest and the smallest dies in the set.  I then put them back together secured them temporary with washi tape at the back.  Then I stamped the slice of watermelon image from Market Stand stamp all over the main panel except at the center panel toward the left.  I used the whole watermelon image and stamped it there along with the sentiment from Scoops stamp set.

I then took the center piece out and stamped the slice of watermelon image onto some post-it paper repeatedly (I mean alot *lol*) and fussy cut them out to cover all my slices.  Then I began to use Distress Oxide Ink in iced spruce covered lightly just to give it some light color rather than white.  For the center panel I used worn lipstick Distress Oxide ink.

I colored all images with copic makers and adhered the center panel onto some light weight layering paper in black and popped the panel up with form tape.   As in trend now I dropped Nuvo Crystal Drop in Apple Green color for additional interest.

I hope you like it and Thank you for stopping by today.

Sending Bugs And Kisses

Hi, Divas! It's Andrea here with a card featuring some of the adorable new stamps released last week. I hope you've picked up your favorites; if not, maybe my card will inspire you. ;)  
 The middle image and the cute caterpillar are from Ladybug Garden, and the other ones are from Garden Bugs. I stamped all of the images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored them with Copics, and cut them out. I added some details with a white gel pen and some sparkle with Zig Wink of Stella. 
 Using one of the Stitched Scallop Dies, I die-cut some white cardstock that had been trimmed to A2-size. I adhered some Doodlebug Designs' Spring Things paper to the bottom of a white card and popped up the die-cut panel with foam tape. The bug in the flower pot was also popped up with foam tape, while the other two bugs were adhered flat. The pink banner was die-cut with one of the Flag Banner Dies. I heat-embossed a sentiment from Ladybug Garden onto it and adhered the banner to my card, trimming off the excess with scissors, and then popped up the little caterpillar on top. I hope you have a wonderful day, and don't forget to check out the new release. I promise you won't be disappointed!

May Your Rainy Days Glisten..

Hello CDD Friends I hope you enjoyed the last release! Waleska here with a very fun project for you! with the cute little umbrellas from the Rainbows and Sunshine set! 

For this project I did a lot of paper piecing and hand cutting which I love doing! I wanted to have all the umbrellas in different colors so I stamped the different umbrellas in beautiful Doodlebug cardstock to give the umbrellas different patterns, after that I cut only the umbrellas and color with markers some details of them.  I stamped the umbrellas all over the front part of the card and glue the pieces, I added sequins in different colors and use the same doodlebugs paper for the card base!  I felt the front part of the card had a lot so I stamped the sentiment in the inside of the card.


This is another way you can use the paper scraps you have around! I hope you give this idea a try!!

And drew a dot with white pent all around.
Next step is cutting a circle ship using watercolor paper and applied embellishment paste.
After it dried drawing a sunrise image with watercolor.
And stamped a viking ship image stamp on watercolor paper and colored with watercolor then fussy cut leaving thin white border.
Lastly the circle and viking ship paper piece adhered to the craft card panel with foam tape.

Hello CDD Fans!!! It's Lindsay from the DT here with you on the very last day of the May New Release. If you are new to the CDD New Release Events, on the last two days we always have a look back on the newly released items. Today, I am sharing a card made with the brand new Garden Accessories Die Set. The die cuts I am using, I actually made in the CDD New Release Highlight Video for the Garden Accessories Die Set. Every time I make one of these videos, I always go back and use the die cuts I cut and put together in those videos. So here's a video tutorial sharing how I used those die cuts to create a shaped die cut scene!

Like I said above, all of my die cut pieces were put together already. If you want to check out how to put all the pieces together you can head HERE to see the New Release Highlight Video! The only die cutting left to do was with the Stitched In Circle Die Set. I used the large scalloped circle to cut a piece of white card stock, and the smaller plain stitched circle die to cut a piece of white card stock, two green pieces, and one vellum piece. To finish up the die cutting I used the grass border from the Outdoor Landscape 2 Dies to cut grassy border with the green card stock at two different heights. Also, I used the Stitched Scallop Die Set to cut the top of the vellum die cut to create a cloud border.
Finished Card 4
Putting the scene together was quite simple. Using the white plain circle die cut as a base for all the other layers, I first adhered the vellum cloud panel, making sure the circles were aligned perfectly. Next up was the taller of the grass borders with double sided adhesive. Moving onto the wheelbarrow, I wanted to fill it up with all of the gardening supplies. I used a liquid glue, glossy accents for this portion, and glued in all of those gardening elements on the back of the wheelbarrow. With fun foam and double sided adhesive, I adhered the wheelbarrow onto the circle panel and finally, the last green grass border on the very bottom of the scene.
Finished Card 3
To put the entire card together, I first adhered the scalloped circle with fun foam and double sided adhesive to the top center of an A2 top folding white card base. Inside the scalloped I glued down the die cut scene and stamped a "Hello" sentiment in the bottom right hand corner of the card base with black dye ink. I finished off the scene with a few clouds and a sun die cut from the Scene Builders Die Set. I also decorated the inside of this card with the larger and smaller flower pots, put together with the dirt and flowers in the bottom right hand corner and a sentiment from the "Special Delivery" Stamp Set.
Finished Card 1

This was a super easy card to put together and I just love the way it turned out. Die cutting is one of my favorite parts of cardmaking! It is kind of like a puzzle to me and putting all of the pieces together is so much fun! If you are interested in any of the Craftin Desert Divas supplies I used on my card today, they are all linked below! Until next time, Happy Crafting!!!

Thanks A Bushel!

 Hello and welcome! Tatiana here from Tatiana Craft And Art and I'm so excited to bring you my daily post at Craftin Desert Divas blog!!!

 Today is the first day of the Craftin Desert Divas May Release and so I just couldn't help playing with the FANTASTIC new stamps and dies! In fact, I mixed and matched a few new stamps and dies and have two fun projects to share!

 The first clean and simple card features an AMAZING new MARKET STAND stamp set. I particularly LOVE this one since it filled with a super adorable images that offer you infinite possibilities of use and suit any kind of paper crafting project: cards, tags, scrapbook layouts, planners, treat bags!

 Since the stamps from MARKET STAND set are so adorable, I thought that a clean and simple look would be perfect for my card! I started with A2 size card base made out of a Bristol paper and created a non-distractive background, inkblending a very light blue Distress ink from one corner. Then I went a little bit crazy, stamping and fussy-cutting a whole bunch of the images from the set. I worked with a copic friendly paper and ink at this point since my intention was to color everything with copic markers. Please, scroll down towards the bottom of this post to see all the exact copic marker numbers I used for coloring!

 Once completed coloring, I stamped the sentiment from the same MARKET STAND set, popped up all the elements on a foam tape and added a few crystal clear sequins as a finish touch.

My second card is completely different from the previous one! In fact, I used dies and digital stamps all from the CDD new May release and a few fun watercolor techniques as well! I started with a 3 by 9 inches watercolor panel and the slightly larger coordinating card base that once scored measures 3 ½ by 9 inches. First I die-cut the watercolor paper 3 times using new GARDEN BORDER die set and ended up with 4 more or less equal pieces. I smooched some Distress inks onto a craft sheet, spritzed them with water and put my watercolor paper on top. I repeated the process a few times, heat drying the paper every time. The top die-cut part was colored in a light blue shade since it was going to be a sky portion for my scene, on the others I used a few brown shades, instead, to emulate soil.

 While the watercolor elements were drying, I printed on a Bristol paper with a laser printer a few cute digital stamps: No Bunny Like You, Carrot Harvest and Harvest Crates; watercolor them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, cut out right against the stamp edge and hide any imperfection from cutting, applying a black marker all around every image.
Finally I literary rooted my carrots into the soil part as GARDEN BORDER die makes the fantastic marks into your paper that allow you to insert any kind of plant inside, and adhered the top part with a foam tape for some dimension and interest. The sentiment from LADYBUG GARDEN stamp set was simply heat embossed at the bottom with a white embossing powder. That all for today! Hope you like these lovely cards! As always thanks so much for stopping by!
