Kissing Birds Shaker Card

Hello crafty peeps! I am back for Craftin Desert Divas and today, I am sharing with you this adorable kissing birds shaker card.

I started out by printing the kissing birds digital stamp by CDD with Neenah solar white card stock on my laser printer.  I wanted this image to pop so I adjusted the size to make it slightly bigger.  I fuzzy-cut the image with my cutter-bee precision scissors  and set it aside.  I stamped my card panel with some images from another CDD stamp and distressed the background with my spun sugar distress ink.

To create the sentiment, I used the Flag Banner dies and stamped “Love You” showcasing the Elegant brush script stamp set.  This set is a must-have for any stamper.

To create the shaker part of the card, I die-cut the tag using my Banner Dies from CDD with my doodlebug paper, with the acetate sheet and foam adhesive.  For my shaker element, I used my new favorite, shimmer sequins also available at the shop.  They are so sparkly and beautiful!  I also added the red and white twine to finish the design. Here is my card.

You’re One in a Chameleon

I am back today with Craftin Desert Divas and I am sharing this cute card for the January Mood Board challenge #CDDMonthly.  Below you will find the inspiration photo.

I started out with by die-cutting my card stock using the Fancy Frame Dies. I used my distress inks to distress my background and splattered white paint all over the card panel.  I stamped my cute Chameleon on Neenah solar white card stock, and colored him in with my Copic markers.  Doesn’t this cutie remind you of Pascal?  He is the Chameleon in the Disney movie, Tangled.

To create my scene and to finish my design, I die-cut the grass, the white picket fence and the birch tree using the Outdoor Landscape 2 dies.

Here is my card:

I started out by die-cutting my card base and used some cute patterned papers to layer them on my card. I then stamped my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers. I wanted to create a Valentine’s Day card, and wanted to use some soft colors for my robots.

For the second card you see below, I distressed my background with spun sugar distress ink.  I used my wet watercolor brush to splatter some water on my background. I really love the distressed look it gives once the ink reacts with the water!

I used one of my all-time favorite stamp set from CDD, called Doodled Frames for both cards. I used the delicate bow image, coloring them in with my Copic markers and fuzzy-cut them with my cutter-bee scissors. I finished off the design by adding the pink hearts with glossy accents. I love how this card turned out.

Here are the two cards that I made:

I started out with an embossed-resist technique with my white embossing powder and heat-set it to dry.  I used spun sugar and shaded lilac distress inks to achieve the colors, to match the mood board inspiration photo.   I then colored my images using my Copic markers.  I finished off the design of the card by adding glossy accents to the heart, eyes and nose, and used my liquid appliqué to add details to the beanie.  I hope you like my card.
