Somedays... Craftin Desert Divas Inspiration

Hi Everyone! Today I am sharing some Craftin Desert Divas inspiration on the CDD Blog.

I am in love with the new Your Wish stamps and just can't seem to get enough of them. These genies are so much fun to color! I just had make another card with these cuties!


Seriously, I love these genies!!

My Card card uses quite a few dies but they work so well together.

I started with watercolor cardstock and did some inking with a stencil that I created with the Outdoor Landscape Dies. I, then, used the dies and vellum to create some clouds.


I colored this little genie and her carpet with Copic Markers. A white gel pen was used for a few accents and some Glossy Accents was added to her eyes. I, also, used my Clear Wink of Stella for her clothing.  I stamped the sentiment with some Versa Fine Black ink and heat embossed my sentiment with Clear embossing powder.

I added some Shimmer Sequins for a final touch.


I hope you found a little inspiration today!

Here are all of the CDD products I used today.

My husband needed a card for the secretary where he works because she is leaving. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to pull out my Craftin Desert Divas stamps and make a pretty card.

I used CDD Flowers in Bloom set to white heat emboss my flowers. I, then, watercolored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. They turned out just the way I had it in my mind.

I added a sentiment from the Wishful Thoughts stamps and die cut my panel with CDD Fancy Frames Dies. My card was finish when I added the new CDD Crystal Sequins.

Welcome Little One ~ with Craftin Desert Divas

Hi There! It's my day to share an inspiration project on the Craftin Desert Divas Blog.

This is what I am sharing:

I made these quick and easy baby cards that you can literally whip up in no time with the wonderful products from Craftin Desert Divas!


 All that is needed to make these cards is a few dies, sentiment stamps, and some patterned paper. 

My card base color was dictated by the patterned paper I used. I layered it with some designer paper cut with the Crazy Stitched Frame Dies.

I used the new Tiny Treasure Dies and cut my pieces with various patterned paper and inked around all the edges with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink.


For my little girl card I added a flower to the onsie from the Crazy Stitched Frame Dies and a few little buttons on the shoes for some detail.


For my boy version I added a star from the Pocket Pieces Hello Dies and a bit of Baker's Twine to the shoes.



To finish the cards off I used the adorable sentiment from Sugar & Spice.

And there you have it! Super easy but, oh, so cute!

Thanks for joining me today!
