Foxy Birthday ~ with Craftin Desert Diva's

Hi there! I am back today with another project featuring Craftin Desert Diva's "Bring On The Cake" stamp set.

When I saw this cute bag at My Scrap Chick I knew that I wanted to make it.

This was really simple to put together and I think these would be great for a child's birthday party. This fox is from My Scrap Chick called Fox Treat Bag. I put it together as is after inking all of my pieces.

As I said earlier, I used the Craftin Desert Diva's Bring On The Cake stamp set. I, also, used the new Deer Friends set and heat embossed the sentiments in black.

Have a look at these 2 sets.

Cake! ~ with Craftin Desert Divas

Hi there! 

Over the next 2 weeks I am going to be sharing a few projects featuring the Bring On The Cake stamp set from Craftin Desert Diva's

I think this is a great basic birthday set and one that will be used over and over.

For my first project I created a shaped card.

For my shaped card I started with a cut file from My Scrap Chick called Happy Cake Treatkins.

I wanted my cake to have some texture so I embossed the frosting with the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls embossing folder. I thought this sentiment from Craftin Desert Diva's Bring On The Cake would look perfect on a speech bubble. So, I hand cut it and layered in on some blue cardstock.

Here you can see that I added some Yellow Stickles to my candle flames and some Glossy Accents to the candles.

A few white pen work and this cute card is finished!

Here is a look at the stamp set I used:

You can find it in the Craftin Desert Diva's shop -- HERE

Yesterday was the beginning of a special feature going on at Craftin Desert Diva's.

Go check it out!

Live, Love, Grow ~ Craftin Desert Divas Linky Party

Today is the Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party hosted by Tara of Craftin Desert Divas! Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party and you could win fabulous prizes!! Welcome to our mid post for this weeks "Ribbon" challenge.

For this this challenge I decorated the front of a mini album I have been working on.

I taught this mini in a class at JoAnn Fabrics. My pages are in the mini but I have yet to decorate them so you only get to see the cover today.

I used DCWV Mariposa 12 x 12 paper stack and various Prima Flowers that I have had in  my stash. I added some gold tread behind the flowers and scattered a few gold sequins about. Ribbon was added to the spine and will be used as the closure for the mini album.

My sentiment on the front and spine is from Craftin' Desert Divas Blooming For You stamp set. It was stamped inside the tag shape from Tag It. I just fussy cut it out.

Here is a look at these 2 fabulous sets:

Take Time to Smell the Flowers ~ A Daily Post with CDD

Today I am sharing this sweet card over on the Craftin Desert Divas Blog.

 I used the Blooming for You stamp set. This stamp set contains both sentiments and images.

I chose to use the cute bear from this set to be the focal point of my card.

I thought I would be a little brave and try my hand at some water coloring. I used my Distress Markers to color in the image.  I still need some practice but I am happy with the result.

Here is a little close up.

The sentiment is also in the "Blooming For You" set. I stamped it in some brown Momento ink.

Have a look at that stamp set.

You can find this set and many more in the Craftin' Desert Divas Shop.

Thanks for stopping by!
