DT Marine's Interactive Card

Hello there, it's DT member Marine! Today I'm very excited to share with you my very first diorama card ever. Making this interactive card was really fun and I like the final scene which I think is very cozy! I will definitely make more of them in the future!

The first thing I did was coloring all the images using my alcohol markers, and fussy cutting them.

Next I built the box. And for that, I cut two 18,2 x 10 cm rectangles and scored each at 13,2 cm and 17,2 cm. I die cut a rectangle from one of these two pieces to create the front window.

I also cut two 15,8 cm long strips and scored each one at 1,3 cm from both ends. Then I assembled the box.

The measurements are also written in the video (link below), and I think the whole process is easier to understand by watching it directly ^^

To add more decorations to my box, I die cut a light border, painted it using red and gold glitter pens, and attached inside the box at the back of the top. Then I glued all my images inside the box, either on the back strip or at the front one. And to finish the card, I simply added my sentiment banner above the wreath.


Hope you like this diorama card! Have a beautiful day!

November Release Day 2

Hello everyone ! DT Ale here today sharing a card that I made using stamps and dies from the new November release.
So to get started my card I die cut the main panel using Fancy frame dies  and then I also die cut another panel for my hill and mountains dies because I wanted them to have the same stitched edge . 
The hill die is from Fall border dies and the mountains are from Scenery dies which is part of November release 
After all the die cutting was done I picked some inks and inked the background and after the ink was dried I took the new stencil called Sorted shapes 1 and tried to create a snowy background , but also didn't wanted to overpower the scene so I used transparent embossing paste . 
While the panel was drying I added details to the mountain capes using the Marvy Snow Marker and heat set it using my heat tool, and this creates a very cool effect .
The final step was to color the adorable images from Yeti Fun stamp set which is also part of the new release using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers .
I also made a video were is show step by step how I created this card , so feel free to check that out too.
Also this release was so amazing that I really wanted to share some other projects that I made using some other stamps that are part of the new release 
Thank you so much for stopping by ! have a lovely day!

November Release Day 1

Hello there!!!
Michelle here on the CDD blog today sharing a card made for the November Release!!!

Today I am using Skating By and Scenery Dies, which are part of the November Release. I am also using Balloon Parade, Fancy Frame Dies and Outdoor Landscape Dies. Other supplies used: memento black ink, wilted violet distress ink, glossy accents, foam tape and CDD sequins.

First I inked up a piece of white cardstock with wilted violet distress oxide ink than secured the dies and ran it thru the machine...
Than a seperate piece of white cardstock for the snow drift...

Double check the fit before going any further. I stamped the skating critter with Memento black ink and colored him with Copic Markers in shades BG10, 11, 13, 78, V01, 04, W00, 1, 3, 4, and R20. I added some white accents with a gel pen.
Die cut a piece of clear cardstock with the Fancy Frame Die and glue it to the inside of the negative die cut panel. Add foam tape and glitter.
Before I secure the shaker panel to the card base I align it with the 4.25 x 5.5 outline to make sure I lay it evenly.
Don't be shy with the sequins...go ahead and fill it up!!!
Lastly, I added the sentiment to the inside. Added'll have a gorgeous inked die cut tree ready for use on another card!!!
Hope you enjoyed this project!!! Thanks for stopping by!

November Release Sneak Peek Day 5

Happy Friday! Tatiana is here today from Tatiana craft And Art! And I'm sooooooooo happy to bring you my daily post and a peek on the new super adorable ARCTIC PALS stamp set! All the products from the CDD November release will be available for purchase on Friday October, 17 at Craftin Desert Divas online shop!

I mixed and matched a few CDD products creating the layout with a circle focal point on this card to get more use of the dies and the stencil I already have in my stash. But if you're new to the cardmaking and don't have all those fancy products yet, please, read this post because I'll be giving the alternative ideas on how to create the same layout.

Here's the steps to follow:
  • Cut and score an extended A2 size card base (5½" x 4¼")
  • Die-cut a scalloped rectangle using Fancy Frame Dies or simply cut it out with your trimmer or scissors. The rectangle should be slightly smaller then your card base.
  • Die-cut a scalloped circle from Stitched In Circle Dies inside the rectangle or simply fussy cut it apart with you scissors. Use anything that have a round shape to achieve a perfect circle like a glass, for example, and trace around it a pencil line to help you at this step. Use a decorative scissors to achieve a fancy border on the rectangle and the circle.
  • Put the die-cut circle back in the negative place and secure it with a non permanent tape to keep it in place while you die-cutting the stitched border from Fall Border Dies or adhere the hand cut circle into the desirable position with a non permanent glue and use a cutter knife for a wavy line.
  • Add color to the die-cut parts above the wavy lines transforming them into the sky portion. I used a light blue ink and an ink blending tool for that, but you can use any color media you have on hand and let everything dry.

  • Keep the bottom part simply white and stamp the sentiment in the bottom left corner.
  • Stamp, color with any media of your choice and fussy cut the cute critters from Arctic Pals stamp set. I used here copic marker. Scroll down to the bottom of this post to see all the exact colors I used.
  • Once dried, apply the snowflakes to the sky portion through the Snowflake Flurries Stencil or simply draw you own with a white gel pen.
  • Start assembling the card. Adhere the rectangle piece straight to the card base. Pop up the top part of your circle on a foam tape. Then double the foam tape for the bottom part of the circle and finally pop up the colored stamps on top.
