NND20170601_FurrEverFriends_PKG

 

I wanted to create a scene that is somewhat ethereal to make it look like the pets are just hanging out in heaven. I know this is where they go when they pass.

 

I stamped my images on Neenah solar white card stock and used my Brother Scan N Cut2 machine to die-cut my images. I die-cut another rectangular card stock and used my sun stencil to create the look of sun. I die-cut the rest of the card stock, as well as my acetate sheet to create the window for my shaker card. I added some iridescent confetti and sequins available from Kat Scrappiness to finish the design. Here is my card:

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.

Craftin Desert Divas – Spare Parts Stamp Set Release

January 20th was release day for Craftin’ Desert Divas and the Design Team is showcasing this adorable new stamp set called “Spare Parts” .  I absolutely adore the images on this set!  Please join us on the Facebook Gallery Page to share your creation and participate on the monthly challenges to win some amazing prizes.

Here are the new stamps and dies for the release.  If you placed an order of $50 or more before taxes and shipping, you will get a FREE Candy Jar die with your order whiles supplies last.

cdd-january-release-stamps-and-dies

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:

This stamp set is a must-have.  You can use it for everyday cards, anniversary or Valentine’s Day.  The kids will love this stamp set too.
