Craftin Desert Divas - Golden Wishes

Hey there,

How about some gold and bright colors? I made this birthday card using some brand new supplies from Craftin Desert Divas January release: "Sweetest Birthday" stamp set + "Party Time" stencil.

I first started by applying some pretty colors of distress inks using the stencil. I sprayed water droplets on top of it and dried the panel to get more interest on the background.


Then from white and gold pola dot paper, I die cut a rectangle. And using the same rectangle die and a smaller one, I created a frame for my polka dot rectangle.

I fussy cut my images, colored them using my zig markers, glued them on the polka dot rectangle and attached the gold frame.


For my sentiment, I die cut the word Sending from gold cardstock and stamped the second part on a banner. I also die cut some little stars and circles from the same gold cardstock. And I finally attached all the pieces on my panel.

Craftin Desert Divas - Legos & Cars

Hello there,

Craftin Desert Divas January Release is finally available on the shop so I'm back to share another card showcasing some new supplies, and maybe it will inspire you.


I first started by cutting all the squares, rectangles and little circles in order to build my lego pieces. To get some dimension, I attached the circles using glue dots.


On a white card base, I attached a black & white panel, and started to assembled the legos.


I die cut the word happy twice, glued both pieces together and attached it at top right of my panel, right above the second part of my sentiment. And to get more shine, I applied glossy accents on "Happy".


While it was drying, I colored my image using watercolor markers, and fussy cut it. Attached it at the bottom right of my panel using foam squares. And to fill in the blank areas, I simply die cut and glued some little stars and circles.

Diorama Card Series - White Winter

Hey there,

Today I'm back with a new series: dioramas! I really love making that kind of card because they're very easy to build, and the recipient can put it on the fireplace or on the sideboard to kind of decorate the house ^^ The colors were inspired by the challenge mood board on Craftin Desert Divas facebook page.

Please note that all the measurements are shown in the video below.

I first started by applied white paste on a piece of grey cardstock. While it was drying, I cut all my papers: a big one for the base, three strips, and three different borders to build the winter scene.


I attached each strip inside the base, and then attached each border on a strip. Please watch the video to get a better view ^^ Stamped my sentiment on a banner that I glued on the front strip, and it was done.

Craftin Desert Divas - Cheeky Birthday

Hey there,

Look at those cheeky guys, aren't they too cute? Love their funny faces! They're from the new "Crabby Critters" stamp set. I paired them with some other new supplies: "Party Border" die set + ""Happy" die + "Happy Sentiments" stamp set + "Party Time" stencil.


I first started by die cutting a balloon border from white cardstock, colored each balloon using my alcohol markers, and applied glossy accents on top to make them shiny.


I also embossed the stencil on a piece of white cardstock to make the background more interesting, and attached at the top of that panel the balloon border.


Die cut two "Happy" words, glued them together to get some dimension, attached the element on my panel below the balloon border, and applied glossy accents on top of it. Then I attached right below it the second part of my sentiment.


Colored my images using zig markers, fussy cut them and attached them on the left and right of the sentiment banner using foam squares.


Glued the panel on a white card base, and added a bunch of star sequins here and there to finish the card.

Craftin Desert Divas - Winter Unicorn

Hello there,

I think everyone should have at least one unicorn stamp set in their stash, it's definitely a must have. We're in the middle of winter so what's cuter than a unicorn wearing leg warmers?

Please note that this new stamp set will be a freebie and automatically added to every order of $50 and more (before taxes and shipping)


I first started by stamping a bunch of scarves on a bristol smooth panel. Next I simply colored them using my zig markers. I chose soft rainbow colors to make the whole card more cheerful ^^ I colored the unicorn the same way.


I die cut a circle from pink paper, glued it on a piece of vellum, trimmed the excess and attached the whole circle on the right side of my panel. Trimmed the excess again.

I glued a cloud behind my banner sentiment, and attached it at the bottom of the pink circle. And then attached the unicorn on top of that cloud using foam squares.


On the right side of a white card base, I glued a strip of black & white polka dot paper, and next I attached my panel on top of it. Added a bunch of black enamel dots here and there, and applied clear glitter on the unicorn's hair and tail to finish the card.
