Fun Interactive Card With DT Janni

Hi Divas, DT Janni here.

Today I want to show you how I made this super sweet interactive baby card.

I started with the coloring of the cute koala in the hot air ballon from 'Up Up & Away' and of course I'm coloring with pastels <3 I colored with Copics: Balloon R00-R20-R42, Y00-Y02, E51-E33. Koala W0-W1-W3.

For my backgrounds I used white cardstock and 'Fancy Frame Dies' and for the interactive part I used the new 'Tag It Dies'

I made a cloud border stencil in white cardstock using 'Stitched Scallop Dies' for my cloudy background.

I used Distress Ink 'Tumbled Glass' with my new stencil.

I used the same technique on the tag, and I tried to make the same pattern as the background.

I used the little tag from 'Tag It Dies' on my background.

I also used the little tag to cut in my cardbase and stamped the cut sentiment from 'Hitched' on it. On the big tag I stamped the sweet sentiment from 'Up Up & Away'

Then I used adhesive tape on the background, making sure not to place it where the tag is going to be.

I then placed the cloudy background on my cardbase, and as you can see the tag fit the little pocket I made.

Time to place the sweet Koala in the clouds.
I added some blush satin ribbon on the tag and used some 'Bubblegum Blush' Nuvo Drops. I colored the little heart in the same colors as the hot air balloon.

Here you have a super sweet and simple interactive baby card <3

See you soon again.

Fun Interactive Card With DT Waleska

Hello Friends Waleska here, from craftinglovew to share a very fun, fold card for the dinosaur lover in your life, in my life is my son Ian... He is 10 and loves Dinosaurs.  You can customize this fun fold card with any theme you like to make someone smile let me share with you how to do it.


To create this fun fold card you are going to need two pieces of paper.  One piece 28 x 10.5 cms. and the smallest piece 21.5 x 5 cms.

You fold both pieces, the biggest piece you fold on 11.5 and the smallest piece you make two folds of 5.5 from each side, just like the following photo.

After you have your fold pieces, you glue the small piece to the front bottom of the card, in the center, I used the craft tacky glue by tonic that you can find at the shop, which has become my favorite glue for most of my projects.

I found this dinosaur pattern paper to match the theme of my card and I cut different pieces of it and craft cardstock to embellish the front of my card.

I finally added the adorable dinosaurs from the Dino Dig Stamp set, I colored them with markers and adhere them with foam tape.

I added the funny sentiment and some nuvo crystal drops in color Sugared Almond, I did not want a lot of embellishment since my son does not like any glitter or sparkle (you know is a boy).  

Now is you turn, make a fun fold card with any theme you like, I love this design because you are able to stand up your card for display.  They can be decorated in lots of different ways, and because they have many small sections you can even use some of the scraps you have been saving! 

Have a wonderful day,

Fun Interactive Card With DT Suan

Hi Everyone,
DT Susan here with tutorial blog post on easel cards for Craftin Desert Divas! I decided to try easel cards since I had never made one which is shocking considering I have been stamping for about 20 years! I also decided to try no line or light line coloring with Copics. I wanted to get my Mom's Mother's Day card made way ahead of time since I am always scrambling at the last minute to make one for her. I have also uploaded a  You Tube Video. For my main stamp set I used Craftin Desert Divas' Botanical layers and I just used the outline images. Here is the card I made!

First, I cut a piece of 110 pound card stock to 4.25 x 11. I scored this at 5.5". Then I scored at 2 3/4" to make the fold for the easel card part.

Then I started my stamping using a light colored die ink, my images, and my Misti. I pre-cut the masks from Eclipse Masking Tape. I could not find my Distress Ink Antique Linen and this is usually the perfect color for no-line coloring.

I then adhered some adhesive from my tape runner to the bottom of the easel fold and attached my card panel to that. I then adhered a stack of hearts to hold up the card front like an easel does.

Supplies are listed and linked below. Thank you for visiting and I hope you liked the card.

Yellow flower - Y11 - Y17, YR18, R17, C3, E09 for the center
Red flower- R12, R32, R17, R35, R89, E07, EO9 and Y13 and BG09 for the center, C3 for cast shadows
Pink Flower: RV0000, RV63, RV66, RV69, R81 and Y13 and RV99 for the center
Leaves: YG11, YG13, YG17, YG91, G20, YG0000, G40, G29
Double check on the video- I may have missed "a few" lol!!!

Fun Interactive Card With DT Margaret

Hi Divas! It's Meg here with you to share a quick tutorial on making an Accordion card...and a bonus scene! Accordion cards are some of the easiest "fun fold" cards out there, and look so elegant when complete! Here's my project:

Now, let's get started!

For this project, you will need:
STEP 1. Using your 4.25" x 11" cardstock base, divide into quarters and score: 2.75", 5.5" 8.25". Fold on score lines, alternating valley and mountain fold. This will result in an "M" shape. your basic accordion fold card base is complete...seriously.

STEP 2. Center the Blooming Tree stencil on your extra 4.25" x 11" piece, and color up. I chose to outline the tree and then color with Copics.

STEP 3. Cut your kraft cardstock to size to matte each of the 4 panels of your card. Then, divide your tree. To cut the tree, start by cutting at the 5.5" mark. Then, measure off your 4 panels.

STEP 4. Now all that's left to do is adhere your tree and decorate! I added some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to each tree panel before adhering it. Have fun creating a fun scene of your own!

Here's my design again (ahem, yes you can see where I miscalculated up my tree cut...gotta be careful when you measure!)! I've listed all the products at the bottom, too. See you next time!

Here are CDD supplies :
Flower Kisses stamps
Blooming Tree stencil

Fun Interactive Card With DT Adela

Hello crafting ladies! It´s CDD DT Adéla here with a new tutorial. I will show you how to make a neverending card. It is super easy and fun to make.

You will need 4 pieces of paper 3x6 inches to make a card 6x6 inches big. Or you can start with 2 panels 6x6 inches and decorate it before cutting as I did. Stencils are great way to make a gentle background.

When you are finished, cut them into halves. One vertical, one horizontal. I made a small video to show you, how to score the pieces before assembling whole card together.

When you have a card base you can start putting in your collored images and small decorations like enamel dots etc. I diecut "sending" word with my Big shot and gave it on front side.

As you flip the back side you can start over again...Here is small video with finished card.

Thanks for stopping by!
