Craftin' Desert Divas January Release Blog Hop!!!!!

Welcome to the CDD January Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop. 
All stamps & Dies are in the CDD Shop and now available for purchase HERE.





















Here's what I've created for you...



This card is showcasing the new Fancy Stitched Label Dies.  These dies remind me of vintage frames. So I paired them up with the vintage-looking truck from the Farmer's Market stamp set.  I coloured the truck using my Stabile pens and water.  I also, used a die from the Fancy Frames die set. To finish off, I just traced an outline with a brown marker.



My next project uses the stamp set Sweet Kisses.  This set is full of everything you need to create a "Sweet Handmade Card or Baked Goodies"!!  I stamped the whisk image to create my own border.  I coloured in the images with my Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut them out.  Of course, I used the Fancy Frames dies as well with this card :).  I added Wink of Stella to the whisks (hard to tell in the photo) and some white dots on the frosting of the cake with a white gel pen.  And of course, a few sequins to finish it off!!




And finally, my third project uses the Super Cute Slow mini stamp set.  He is just too cute and I've had a blast using this little guy!!!  I stamped him directly onto the base of my card with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I created a partial mask (of his rear end only) so I could stamp the balloons from the It's All About Zoo stamp set. I masked the balloons as well and stamped them twice.  I coloured the images in using my Lyra Rembrandt PolyColor pencils.  I actually cut the sentiment up so I could stamp only the "get well soon" portion.  I was going to leave it as it was but if you know me, I have a bit of an issue with too much white space.  So I used the Stitched Scallop Dies to create the edge...these dies are awesome because they leave stitching lines on both pieces!  I adhered some bright pink cardstock to the inside of the panel, rounded the bottom corners and added stitching line detail with a white get pen.  I added Glossy Accents to the balloons and the shell of the turtle.



I so hope you enjoyed these cards!!  This release is just the sweetest!!!

  4. All three cards are delightful. The truckload of thanks is wonderful for a masculine card and I would love to make a baking card like the second one for my daughter. The turtle card is darling and I love the glossy balloons. Great job.

  5. Wow! They are all so amazing! I love the truck - that is brilliantly done. I think the border you created with the whisks is really inspired and works really well and finally, what can I say other than hurrah for your little tortoise - beautifully coloured and with super highlights. I'm loving all your creativity since you joined the CDD team :) xx

  9. Your "Truckload of Thanks" card is fantastic. I so agree with you on how vintage looking both the Farmers Market truck stamps & the Fancy Stitched Label Dies are. They got together like "Peas & Carrots". Your coloring work on your YUMMY Sweet Kisses card is amazing and I just love the fantastic details of your "Slow" card.
