Hello everyone ! 
Mayra here from Mayras Designs 
with today's post . 
I LOVE, love, love the new release !! 

For my card today I used one of my all time 
FAVORITE sets Timber  . 
Yes, I know it is one of the newest sets ,lol ...
That is how much I adore the images ,
it gets the honor of being one of my top fave sets !! 

I am hooked on creating matching treat bags with the cards I create . 
The Treat Bag die set makes it so easy to customize 
and create any theme of bag you want to create ! 

I knew I had to use red and black for my 
little lumberjack ... I had to !! 
I used my go to combination for reds 
using Copic markers in R46,27,17,05 and a bit of R12 or R11 .

I hope you love this set I created to share with you !! 
Thank you so much for stopping by ! 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day !

Hello Fall Planner

Happy Weekend Divas! It's Cheryl with the Design Team sharing a Fall inspired planner layout with you! 

First I stamped out the scarecrows, sunflowers, daisies, and squirrel from the Autumn Wishes Clear Stamp set onto sticker paper using dye ink and then fussy cut them. Then I colored all of the images using alcohol markers.

I thought the sunflowers would look so pretty between the days in my planner, however, I wanted to add some more visual interest. So I used some distress ink in tumbled glass behind the daisy. The tip of the round blending foam was a perfect match with the sunflower, no need to measure or checking to see if you've applied enough ink on your planner! :) After distressing I stuck the sunflowers on and then the rest of the images.

A planner layout just doesn't seem complete without some washi, I applied some washi tape on the inner sides of the planner pages and punched the pages. Lastly, I added some hand lettering for the month and "hello fall".  And there you have it!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Timber Shaker Card

Hello Friends, Waleska from craftinglovew here... thank you for stopping by.  Today I want to share with you a Shaker Card where the focal point is a fall scene with a cute critter from the Timber stamp set.


I started creating the scene, inside the smallest rectangle from the Inside Scalloped Rectangle Dies.  I measure the rectangle and cut a piece of  white cardstock  to fit the rectangle.  I sponge the piece with Spice Marmalade Oxide Ink and flick some water splashes, I also die cut a craft cardstock hill from the Outdoor Landscape Dies and some trees from the new Harvest Border dies.  

To create the little leaves I die cut several  of flowers that come in the Inside Scalloped Circle die and cut the petals to create little leaves for the fall scene, I color them with Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint Oxide ink. I color the cute critter with markers and assemble the shaker card.  I also used Fall Harvest CDD Sequins mixed with the little leaves, that look perfect with the colors of my scene.

Because I wanted the scene to be the focal point on my card I put the sentiment inside the card and put two layers of white paper cut with the fancy frame dies on the front part of the card.

I hope you like this idea of making little scenes with your favorite critters to create a beautiful focal point in the front of your card.  Have a nice day.

Halloween Scene Stencil

 Hey Divas!!! Design Team Member EK here today to share a ridiculously large number of ways to craft with the new Halloween Scene Stencil

  I was so excited when CDD released this stencil last month, having come to paper crafting from Mixed Media Art. I am actually quite a stencil junkie. But there I quickly learned that many card crafters are intimidated by stencils. EK Gorman CDD 9:21 3
So I thought it would be fun to compile a massive list of different ways to use a stencil when card crafting. I will warn you, this list is not exhaustive. There are so many other things you can use with stencils, and even as I type this, I am realizing all these really cool things I could add to the list. EK Gorman CDD 9:21 2

I also fully assembled ten different cards showing how to finish off the stenciled background using CDD's new Zombody and Frightfully Sweet stamp sets.

  EK Gorman CDD Critters I whipped up a video showing all these different techniques. It is a really long video, so I will list all the different techniques and when they happen below.

Distress Inks: :40 Distress Oxides: 2:15 Ghosting Inks: 4:08 Ink Transfers: 5:38 Spray Inks: 6:58 Spray Ink Transfers: 7:50 Watercolors: 8:25 Watercolor Markers: 10:18 Watercolor Powders: 12:13 Paint: 13:18 Splatter Paint: 15:00 Paint Smudging: 17:30 Textured Paint: 18:37 Mica Powder: 21:16 Embossing Powder: 23:28 Acrylic Mediums/Molding Paste: 24:50 Mousse (metallic textured pastes): 26:23 Crackle Medium: 29:21 Embellishments: 31:18 Tracing: 32:38
Ek Gorman CDD1 I hope this gives you some new ideas of how to play with stencils! Show us how you use the new Halloween Scene Stencil on CDD's Facebook Gallery, using one of these ideas or a completely new one. The Design team really wants to see how you are playing with this new line in the CDD collection!

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Hello Everyone!!! It is Lindsay from the DT and I am so excited to be sharing a new card and quick tip video with you today!! Just a few days ago, a brand new digital stamp was added into the Craftin Desert Divas Shop. As soon as I seen this adorable little image, I knew I wanted to create a card with it! Here's a peek at the new Pumpkin Spice Latte Digital Stamp that I used on my card today!!!! Oh, and it's only $0.99!!!!

I first printed off the digital image and sentiment using my laser printer, onto a piece of white card stock. For the sentiment, I used the largest plain stitched rectangle in the Fancy Frame die set to cut out a panel with the sentiment on the bottom. For the coffee cup, I made it a bit larger and quickly colored it in with my alcohol markers and then fussy cut right at the stamped lines.
Finished Card 2
Before adhering the coffee cup to the sentiment panel, I added a little Peacock Feathers Distress Ink to the top of the panel to create some shadow. After I was happy with the distress ink bending, I added the coffee cup to the top of the panel with double sided adhesive and fun foam. Next, I added the sentiment panel to a larger kraft die cut, from the same die set, and then both panels directly onto an A2 side folding card base!
Finished Card 4
I thought this card would be perfect for holding a little gift card ( to the recipient's favorite coffee stop) so I quickly grabbed my Fancy Frames Die Set and made a little pocket on the inside of the card! Watch the quick tip video below to see how I did it!!!

I hope you enjoyed the quick tip video and a look at this adorable new digital stamp and how I used it to create a CAS and fun card!! If you're interested in the Craftin Desert Divas products I used on my card today, you will find them all linked below!! Until next time, Happy Crafting!!!

Let's Hang Out Soon

Hello there!
It's DT Michelle, just stopping by to share my daily post with you.

Today I am using the stamp set Harvest Happiness...I am so loving this set!!!!
First I stamped the images with memento black ink than colored them with Copic Markers. I used shades B05, 14, 16, 18
C3, 4, 5, 7
E23, 25, 29, 31, 33
G24, 28
R27, 39
Y11, 15, 15
also 100 and colorless blender.
I added some white accents with a gel pen than fussy cut these adorable images. Now onto the background... I masked the back panel and sponged it with salty ocean distress ink. Than I inked up another piece of cardstock with fossilized amber and twisted citron distress inks. I die cut the panel with Harvest Border Dies. I added a few splashes of water to achieve the speckled look. Than I added my sentiment.

After the panels were assembled, I arranged this sweet little scene!!!!
Thanks for taking a peek!!! Hope you enjoy!!!
