Craftin' Desert Divas April Release

Melon Drop

Moonlit Kisses

Violet Flicker



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

My first card uses the new Flowers In Bloom stamp set.  I wanted to try something a bit different, so I got out some felt that I've had in my stash forever!  I stamped the images using StazOn Ink then fussy cut them out. I arranged the flowers and leaves around a die cut circle frame (using the Stitched in Circles Dies).

I added small clear rhinestones to the centre of the flowers to add a little sparkle.

The sentiment is from Be Inspired. Everything was adhered to a white panel cut from Fancy Frames dies, then adhered to a white card base.

For my second project I used the new Picture Frame Dies, Wishful Thoughts Stamp Set and Wishful Thoughts Dies and Botanical Layers.


I started by colouring three of the same flower in a shade of fuchsia, pink and purple.  I used watercolor paper and waterbased markers.  I fussy cut the images out. I then die cut the word Sorry from black cardstock three times and adhered them together to create a dimensional die cut. To finish off this "clean" card I added a purple banner using the Mini Banner Die.


This die set has quickly become one of my faves!

I hope you like what I've created for you and that you're having fun and getting excited for these new products!!
