Watercolor Window Shaker Card!!!


Hello everyone! I am here today to share a card I made! This one is super exciting for me because not only did I get to play with watercolors for the background but I did something NEW! I created a window shaker card! I think that is what it is called lol??? I used Craftin Desert Diva's "Fancy Frame Dies" to create a shaker on the front card panel. In this shaker I used some CDD "Fairy Dust" sequins along with some purple glitter I had in my stash. I then used my Tim Holtz "Salty Ocean" distress ink to blend on the frame. As well as some "Mowed Lawn" distress ink on the grass I cut using CDD "Outdoor Landscape Dies". This beautiful Digi is from Craftin Desert Diva's as well and it is called "Blooming Cricket" ! The sentiment comes from CDD stamp set "Be Inspired" and I embossed that with some gold embossing powder. I also used my embossing pen to cover the hearts on this image as well and heat embossed it with some gold! This is not my original idea by any means I got this from an old video from K Werner Designs on YouTube! Here is the link to the video that inspired me "Friday Focus-Birthday Card"! If you don't already know who she is please head over now and check her out! Now on to my version of the shaker window!

Craftin Desert Diva Sushi Card!!!


Hello everyone here today to share this card I made. I had a freakin blast with this one! I know I say that a lot but seriously come on!!! How cute are these little Sushi Digi's! Colored these up using my spectrum noir markers and fussy cut them all out with my Tim Holtz "Tonic Scissors". This card base is from my stash that I ran through my die cutting machine with a chevron embossing folder. Of course CDD "Fancy Frame Dies" were a must as well on this card! To create the watercolor background I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink "Mowed Lawn" by smushing it down my acrylic stamping block and spraying it with my water bottle and then taking a clear acetate sheet (this can even be what your stamps come on) and then rubbing it down on the block to pick up then ink and smushing it down on your watercolor die cut. I also used some Tim Holtz Distress Ink "Spiced Marmalade" distress ink for the splatters and then on the chevron card base I splattered on some of my black dye ink I use for all my sentiment stamping. Last but not least the sentiment comes from CDD "Kitchen Cuties" stamp set! 


Here is a close up of the Sushi Digi's and the dimension I added to this card!

I had a blast layering all these Digi's together on my computer to create a scene on my card! I used School Bus Digi and Flower Power Digi! I colored these digital stamps in with my spectrum noir and copics. I used my Fancy Frame dies for the layers. And I actually created the yellow and polka dot layer with my distress ink pads and then put a stencil over top and sponged in the green ink for the polka dots. I then traced all the dots with one of my black doodle pens. Then I used that pen to help draw my flower stems and the road. last but not least I added some stickles and Sunny Day Sequins to the middle of the flowers. I am so excited for back to school! Can't wait to be able to give this to one of my girls new teachers. Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card today, I really appreciate each and everyone of you!

Here is what I made..


I started off creating this card using a kraft card base and then I cut out this super cute stitched scallop die from the CDD "Fancy Frame Dies"! I then ran this watercolor sheet through my Big Shot using one of my embossing folders. Then I used my distress inks to create the colorful background. This cute "Coffee Time Kitty" image came from CDD as well. I colored her up using my spectrum noir markers and then also used my white gel pen to add highlights as well as some fo-stitching around the card base. The sentiment came from CDD stamp set "Baked With Love" even though this set at first sight may look like a Christmas set it is really so much more! This set is actually one of my go-to's! And what is one of my cards without some kind of glitter so I added some gold sparkle twine from my stash as well as some stickles on the cute Digi! I hope you all enjoyed my card and look forward to see you back here again. And I can't wait to see what you all come up with for this Linky party!!!

Teacher Card Featuring CDD Digi Hippo Ice Cream!

Hello everyone here today to share a card I created last week for my daughter's teacher. When I seen this "Hippo Ice Cream"  Digi I knew it was a must have. I had so much fun coloring this cutie with my Spectrum Noir markers. But to be honest I didn't know what I wanted to use it for until I seen this sentiment from Craftin Desert Diva's  "School Zone" stamp set. Then it clicked yes the girls need cards for their teachers. Honestly I think this card would be perfect for even a fellow parent to cheer them up that school is out lol! But no really it is such a fun image to color and the ideas are endless. I also used CDD "Fancy Frame Dies" and "Pink and Blue Heart Sequins". Oh and if you have ever ordered from Craftin Desert Divas you may recognize the purple ribbon on my card!? Yep that is right I save that pretty ribbon she packages her stamps with and use it for other projects. Hope you all enjoyed my card as much as I did creating it! Thank you all for stopping by today it means so much! Hope you all have a fabulous day!


Also don't forget to go check out all the amazing new Digi's CDD has over in her shop. I can't wait to share more Digi's with you and how I create with them. My kids love them as well so hint hint ( keeps the kids busy while you craft too)!

Craftin Desert Diva Digi Coffee Card!


Hello everyone! I am so excited you are here today to check out the card I created! I made this card using Craftin Desert Divas "Fancy Frame Dies". The first layer I used a pieces of watercolor paper and ran it through one of my embossing folders. I then used Picked Raspberry, Scattered Straw, and Spun Sugar distress inks to blend on top of the embossing. I took a pieces of vellum and cut out another layer using the dies and white embossed the greeting with the Craftin Desert Diva stamp set "Kitchen Cuties". Tied some twine around those two layers and colored up this cute Coffee cup digi from Craftin Desert Diva using my spectrum noir markers. This image is called "Coffee Couple"! I then made some polka dots all over the cup with a white get pen and pop dotted it up. I took some "Pink Heart" Craftin Desert Diva sequins and scattered them around the card. This card was so much fun to create! I hope you can come and join us on our Month long June Digi "Coffee" challenge in the CDD Gallery
