Here is what I made...


I wanted to "think outside the box" for this project.  I created a handful of mini shaped cards that could be used as lunch box notes or even tags!!  To be honest, once I started these I couldn't stop!!  I wanted to try ALL my stamps with this technique!!!  I used stamps with co-ordinating dies as well as stamps that didn't have dies...just to see if I could do it :).  Here…

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.

So, when the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge came out, I thought I'd give it a shot.  That, and I haven't participated in a challenge for awhile.

I started with an Oatmeal piece of cardstock and the Roses for You stamp set from Simon.


I embossed the front of the card base with a polka dot embossing folder, something I haven't used in a LONG time, so I cannot link to it!!  I also dug out of the embossing bin some embossing diffusers.  These are also one of the very first purchases I made when I started down this road, so I can't link to these either, but I think they are a Darice product.

To define the edge of the embossing, I …
