Craftin Desert Divas - You Make Me Happy

Hey there,

Back to share this card featuring the new "Gnomie" stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas. It's absolutely adorable, I think it's my favorite set from February release.


I first started by cutting a scalloped rectangle in the middle of a white panel. On another white panel, I marked the place of the window with a pencil, and applied different colors of distress inks to create a nice background.


On the window panel, I stamped my sentiment using my misti tool and black ink. Colored my image using zig markers.

Replaced the scalloped rectangle on the window by taping it at the back, and attached double sided foam stripes at the back of the panel to add dimension to my card.


To add more details and interest to the card, I die cut some green inked leaves, and colored a sun flower. Arranged and glued them on the left side of the window. Attached the image on the right side using foam squares, and added some sequins here and there to finish the card.

Easter Card - In The Carrot Field

Hey there,

Wouldn't it be totally awesome to drive a carrot car? Oh I'd love to do that! This cute image is from the new Jellybean Kisses stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas. Mixed it with several dies to create this cute little scene.


I first started by die cutting different borders: two grass borders, and one fence border. Colored the grass borders using two shades of green distress inks, and left the fence border white.


Then I created the sky using two shades of blue distress inks, and applied white pigment ink on top of it using a home made cloud stencil. Glued both grass borders together, attached them to the white fence border, and then to the panel.


I die cut some carrots, colored them using distress inks, and tucked them in the grass borders using glue dots. Stamped my sentiment, colored the image using zig markers, glued it in place, attached the panel to a kraft card base, and finally added some clear sequins here and there.

Birthday Card - Pastry Shop - Shaker Card

Hello there,

Here is the second card I made using the brand new "Me Time" stamp set. Seeing this image, I immediately thought of make her walk in the street and passing by a pastry shop ^^


I first started by cutting a rectangle in the middle of a white panel to create the window, then I embossed that panel using a brick wall embossing folder, and at the back of the panel, I attached a piece of clear acetate. To finish the window, I attached a thin stripe of white cardstock at the back of the scalloped rectangle frame, and finally glued that frame in place.


Attached several stripes of double sided foam tape at the back of my window panel to make room for the sequins. Put clear sequins, and then close the shaker using a panel of pastry pattern paper.


I cut the awning from yellow striped pattern paper using a small scalloped die, and attached at the top of my panel. Also attached the ground at the bottom, and added some white stitched lines for more cute details.

Colored the image using my zig markers, and attached my panel on a white card base. I die cut the word Happy twice: one from pink cardstock, and one from foam. Glued both pieces together, and attached the element on the awning.


Attached my image, and the second piece of my sentiment right under the awning, and appied glossy accents on the word Happy to add more shine and finish the card.

Easter Card - Painter Bunnies

Hey there,

Back with another Easter Card featuring the new "Stitched Alpha" die set + the new "Jellybean Kisses" stamp set. This card is pretty simple, that's why I used colorful pattern papers to make it cute.


I first started by picking several pattern papers, and from them I die cut all the letters I needed. I also cut the same letters from a sheet of white foam so everything could be dimensional. Glued each paper letter on a foam letter.


Then I stamped, fussy cut and colored two cute little Easter bunnies using zig markers.


On a white panel, I traced a thin frame along the edges using a light grey marker, and next I simply attached all the letters using liquid glue, and the bunnies using foam squares. And I simply added white drops at the corner to finish the card.

Easter Card - Egg Hunt

Hello there,

Here are three colorful tags I made using several CDD items, including the new "Jellybean Kisses" stamp set and the new "Sorted Shapes 2" stencil. I think those tags would be perfect attached to chocolate bunnies or chocolate eggs for the traditional children egg hunt!


The process is the same for each tag, here it is.

1. Started by cutting three random egg shapes from bristol smooth cardstock.
2. Applied distress ink on each little panel ; I chose three different bright colors and kept that color scheme for eveything.


3. Die cut three grass borders from green cardstock, and attached them at the bottom of my tags.
4. Die cut three balloon borders from white cardstock, and colored the three balloons in the middle using alcohol markers.


5. Attached these borders at the top of the tags, making sure the colored balloons were centered, and then trimmed the excess. I also popped up the balloons using foam squares, added white touches on them for highlights, and then applied glossy accents to make them shine.

6. Uisng the same color combo, I colored my images using zig markers, and attached them on each tag. I made sure each hair matched each balloon in the middle.


7. For the top of each tag, I simply punched a little whole, and glued colored rings previously made using distress inks and a 1cm punch.
8. Stamped my sentiment three times, framed them using an oval die and attached them to each tag using twine.
9. Finally I glued some sequins for more shine.
