Sending Get Well Wishes ~ with Craftin Desert Divas

Happy Friday, Everyone! Today I am sharing a little Craftin Desert Divas inspiration on the Craftin Desert Diva Blog.

The last release was filled with beautiful flowers and I wanted to make one more project using them.


I colored the beautiful flowers from CDD Flowers In Bloom stamps with Copic markers. I did a lot of masking to get them arranged how I wanted them. I stamped a few extra and popped them up with some foam tape.

I added these to my background that had been cut with CDD Fancy Frames Dies. I used a piece of corrugated kraft paper and splattered it with some Mister Huey's Color Mist.


My sentiment is from CDD Wishful Thoughts stamps and stamped on vellum. This is a fabulous set of sentiments! I added a few enamel dots to finish off the card.

I hope I gave you a few ideas and inspired to create with your CDD products.

Thanks for joining me today!

Lastly I used the new Wishful Thoughts Word Dies and a sentiment from CDD Bring on the Cake stamps and my card was complete.

Pretty Botanicals ~ Craftin Desert Divas April Sneak Peek Day 3

Hey there! I am back with another sneak peek for Craftin Desert Divas April Release!

The featured stamp set for today is called Botanical Layers.

This set is just what it says layers. 

Here is the card I created:


I started by using a Heidi Swap stencil to ink my background. I stamped my images with Momento ink in several different colors. I decided not to use all the layers but I did do quite a bit of masking.


I stamped a few flowers more than once to give my card some dimension.

To see even more projects done with this new stamps set head on over to Facebook HERE and join us in  a sneak peek hop.

Who knows? You may even win something!!

The new Craftin Desert Divas products will be available on Friday in the CDD Shop.

Sorry... Peas Forgive Me ~ Craftin Desert Divas April Release Sneak Peek

Hi there! I hope you all are having a good week so far!

Today is the second day of Craftin Desert Divas April Sneak Peeks and I wanted to share a card I made with today's featured set.

We are having a Facebook Hop for our sneak peeks so you may want to go check out what all the designers have created and get a chance for a prize.

Today's featured sets are Wishful Thoughts Stamps and Wishful Thoughts Dies.

I used them to create my card, along with an older CDD stamp set called Garden Cuties.


You are getting an another sneak peek of something we will be showcasing later this week. Wink...

I love this new set of sentiments and dies. I cut the word Sorry out  twice using the new dies and layered them together. I wanted the brown to peek through so I off-set them a bit. There are 3 total in the Wishful Thoughts Dies


The "I forgot" sentiment is from the new Wishful Thoughts stamp set. There are a lot of great sentiments in this set that compliment the dies nicely.

I little sweet pea is from CDD Garden Cuties and was colored with Copic markers.


I used the Pocket Pieces Hello Dies to create a border for my little guy to rest. The sentiment here is from the Garden Cuties stamp set.

I splattered a little Distress Paint on my background for a bit of added interest.


If you would like to join in the hop head on over to Facebook and start on the Craftin Desert Divas Fan Page HERE.

All of the new stamps and dies will be available for purchase on Friday.

Thanks for joining me today!!
