Holiday Hugs ~ Craftin Desert Divas October Release Blog Hop


Welcome to the CDD Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop. 
All stamps & Dies are in the CDD Shop and now available for purchase.





Here's what I've created for you...


I just love this release!! to create this card I first made my background using Ranger Distress Inks and CDD Outdoor Landscape Dies. Here is a fabulous tutorial on creating a background like this: https://youtu.be/jFOGI6XZN1k

Once the background was finished I added my snow covered ground cut from the Outdoor Landscape Dies and then cut the panel with the new CDD In Line Dies. I added a scallop circle from the new CDD Stitched in Circles Dies behind my panel and topped it off with the Mini Banner Die (Free to the first 60 orders, $40 minimum before taxes and shipping!) .


These little snow critters are just too cute! They are from the new CDD Chilly Stamps. I stamped them with Moment London Fog ink and colored them with Copic markers.


I added a few heat embossed snowflakes included in the Chilly set finished my card off with a sentiment from the new Tis the Season stamp set.

This is a super fun release and I have loved playing with the stamps and dies!!
