Holiday Card Series 2017 - Mistletoe Kisses

Hey there,

Here is the last card I made for Craftin Desert Divas October Release shwcasing the new "Holly Jolly" stamp set and "Sending" die. Once again, this release was beyond gorgeous!


To create this card, I first started by embossing a scalloped rectangle to get a nice background. I die cut another scalloped rectangle from plaid paper and trimmed it smaller to fit at the bottom of my panel. I glued a piece of gold ribbon to make the edge prettier. Attached my panel to a white base.


I die cut the word Sending from white cardstock and its outline from vellum, and attached both pieces together. Colored my images using alcohol markers, and fussy cut them.


Attached everything on my panel using foam squares, and added some sequins to finish the card.

Holiday Card Series 2017 - Shaker Snow Globe

Hey there,

Here is a shaker card I made using a new Craftin Desert Divas stamp set called "Nice List". I love snow globes (actually I collect them! ^^) so I thought it would be nice to create a snow globe card starring this cute little Santa.


I first started by cutting my sentiment in a kind of round shape so it could be placed on the base of my snow globe. I used that shape to cut a bigger piece in silver mirror cardstock to make the base. Glued the sentiment on top of it. And attached that snow globe base under the circle window previously created in white cardstock.


To create the inside of my snow globe, I die cut a hill border and a house border. Attached little pieces of grey cardstock behind the houses to make windows, and added glitter paste on the edges, houses and trees to make the illusion on snow. Then I simply blended two shades of blue to create the sky, and I colored and fussy cut my image.


I attached strips of double sided foam tape at the back of my front panel, glued the borders on the sky panel, added a bunch of white dots to the sky, attached my image in the middle of the scene using foam squares, put a bunch of sequins in the window, and finally attached the background at the back of the window panel to close the shaker part.

I attached the whole panel to a piece of red plaid paper, and finally added an inside scallop vellum circle on the window to give the illusion of frost.

Holiday Card Series 2017 - Golden Angels

Hey there,

Back with another card showcasing some supplies from Craftin Desert Divas October Release. At the end, I find the card a little bit too crowded but I never know when to stop and always have to add more and more LOL


I first started by die cutting a scalloped rectangled, then I hid the edges using masking tape and applied a layer of gold glitter paste using a gorgeous stencil. While it was drying, I die cut the word Sending from white cardstock and its outline from gold glitter cardstock, and glued them together.


I die cut the other part of my sentiment using an inside circle die. And I used another inside circle die to cut a bigger circle. Glued that bigger circle on vellum, and glued the smaller circle with the sentiment in the middle.


Attached the whole circle thing in the middle of my panel, and glued the rest of my sentiment on top of it using foam tape and foam squares. Colored my images using alcohol markers, fussy cut them. I attached the panel to a white card base using a small sheet of fun foam. Glued the angels in place, and added some gold sequins to finish the card.

Holiday Card Series 2017 - Pink & Gold Shaker Card

Hello there,

How about another shaker card showcasing three new products from Craftin Desert Divas October Release? In this card, I used "Sending" die + "Sending Sentiments" stamp set, mixed with other elements.


I first started by cutting all the papers for my base: a pink square, a white square and three gold & white large strips. Attached all those pieces together. Then I die cut three circles: two from white cardstock, and one from fun foam. Glued one white circle on the foam one, and glued the other white circle on vellum, trimmed the excess around it and attached it to the foam piece.


I die cut the word Sending one time from white cardstock, one time from gold mirror cardstock and glued the two pieces together. Die cut the outline of the word from pink cardstock and glued the gold word on top of it.

I sprinkled sequins on the middle of my panel, glued the vellum circle on top of it to finally form the shaker part of the card. Attached the two sentiment elements on top of it, and glued a few sequins to finish the card.

Holiday Card Series 2017 - Blue & Silver Shaker Card

Hello there,

Here is a new shaker card I made using three new products from Craftin Desert Divas October Release: "Wishing" die + "Sending Sentiments" stamp set + "Polar Forst" sequins. Mixed everything with some other elements.


I first started by die cutting three banners from a piece of wood textured cardstock. I attached a piece of clear acetate at the back of it to create my window panel. And to make room for my sequins, I also attached strips of foam at the back of the panel. Used my powder tool to make the strips edges non sticky, put sequins in each compartment and attached a piece of silver cardstock to close the shaker.


To decorate the top of my banners, I die some bows: two from blue mirror cardstock, one from silver cardstock and three from vellum. First glued in place the vellum ones, and then mirror ones on top.


I die cut the word Wishing from silver mirror cardstock, its outline from vellum and glued the two pieces together. Attached the other part of my sentiment, and the word Wishing just above it. And added some sequins here and there to finish the card.
