Craftin Desert Divas - Greetings from the pumpkin patch

Hello there,

Today I'm sharing with you a fall card inspired by the Craftin Desert Divas Challenge Mood Board. I used digital images, and a die from the September release.


So I first started by die cutting two stitched rectangles, and then from them I die cut two ground borders and a corn field border ; this way all my borders have stitched details on the edges.

Next I colored all the borders using different distress inks: a light beige for the corn field border, and two shades of browns for the ground borders. I also created the sky using a light blue and a light orange.


Once all my images printed on white cardstock, I colored them using alcohol markers, and fussy cut them. Attached my borders on top of each other using double sided tape, and placed my little elements using glue dots and foam squares.


Attached my panel to a white base, and attached that to a piece of pattern paper. Glued my homemade sentiment at the top right corner, and finally attached the whole thing to a white card base.

Craftin Desert Divas - Fall Coffee Lovers Hop - Hello Fall

Hey there,

Here is a quite simple card, but yet very cute I think that I made for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop using the cutest owl ever from Craftin Desert Divas. By the way, this image is a freebie for everyone through 9-22-17. Use the code: coffee in the CDD shop to get it for free.

I first started by cutting all the papers at different sizes so I could make several layers and levels. I printed the sentiment and image, and colored it using my alcohol markers.


Then I assembled everything: I attached the plaid rectangle to the largest craft rectangle, glued a long piece of ribbon at the back and attached the whole thing to a white card base. I tied a knot on the right side of the panel and attached the little owl panel on top of it using foam squares.


Added stitched lines around the front frame using a glitter pen, and glued some sequins to finish the card.

Craftin Desert Divas - Trick or treat bags - Mass Production

Hey there,

Today I'm on the Craftin Desert Divas blog sharing these spooky cute trick or treat bags. I've been wanted to make some kind of those for a very long time so when I saw these cute images from the new digital stamp sets called "Ghostly Greetings" and "Happy Haunting", I thought it was perfect time!


I followed a tutorial from PootlesPapercraft to help me build the bags so you will find all the details in the description area of her video.


So. I first started by cutting all my papers (cardstock, pattern, glitter and vellum) and then I assembled the bags. I punched holes at the top of the bags so I could put ribbon and tie a knot using twine.


Then I colored all my images using alcohol markers, fussy cut and attached them on the front of the bags using foam squares. And to finish them, I cut little tags from a pattern paper and added them to the bags.

Craftin Desert Divas - Singing by to say thank you

Hey there,

Today I'm sharing with you this adorable little moose passing by to sing you a lovely little song. Isn't he too cute with his guitar? I simply love him!


I first started by die cutting all the pieces I needed to created my background: a grass border, a water border and a cabin border. I colored the grass and cabin borders using two shades of green, and the water border using two shades of blue. I colored the little cabins and tress using my zig markers. And to create the sky, I used a homemade cloud stencil.


Next I die cut a circle from wood textured cardstock. I attached the two pieces at the back using regular tape so they would stay together. And I started to assemble the background: first the cabin border, then the water border and the grass border, and finally the wood textured panel on top of everything.

I colored my image using my alcohol markers and soft colors, fussy cut it and attached it on my card. Also printed my sentiment on white cardstock, cut it using a banner die and attached it below the circle window using foam squares. And added some clear shimmery sequins to finish the card.

Craftin Desert Divas - Happy Spookoween

Hello there,

We don't celebrate Halloween in France but I still love to make cards for this special occasion. These new dies are part of the September release, as well as these cuties that I love so much, especially the bats. I couldn't help myself I had to add wiggly eyes on them!


I first started by printing my sentiment on a piece of watercolor cardstock. Then I die cut a circle from masking paper that I attached to my panel so I could mask where I wanted to place the moon and create the night sky. I created it using black ink and two shades of dark blue inks.


Next I masked the night sky and started to create the moon. I first applied some pale blue ink all over the circle, and a darker blue ink on the edges. Then I splattered a bunch of water drops to make it more interesting and spooky.

I die cut two borders from black cardstock: one hill border and one haunted house border. I also colored a piece of white cardstock in yellow, cut thin strips from it and glues then behind the haunted house windows.


Attached the borders at the bottom of my panel, and colored the images. I fussy cut them and finally added wiggly eyes to the bats to make them funnier and cuter.
