Craftin Desert Divas "Flashback"!

Hello CDD fans and welcome back!! I'm here today to share a card made using "older" stamps and dies from Craftin Desert Divas!  It's always nice to go through your stash and find a set that's a bit older but still totally awesome.  Speaking of "totally", I used the Greeting Word Die Set which happens to have this word in it!!  I have never come across this in any other company. And the font is fabulous!

This set was released a couple of years ago and I love it! I haven't used it in awhile but this was the perfect time.  For the images, I used the Tickled Pink stamp set. Again, this set was released awhile ago but is still fun and trendy. Who doesn't love a beach bound flamingo??

I stamped, coloured and fussy cut my images out, then planned the scene I was going to create.  I die cut a circle from the Stitched in Circles Die Set and did a bit of messy ink blending with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink.  I wasn't concerned with getting a smooth blend as the "patchiness" gives the look of clouds.

As you can see, I changed my mind.  I decided to ink blend directly on a panel cut from the Fancy Frames Die Set.  I used the negative space from the circle die cut as a quick and easy mask.

Now, this is where I cheated a bit.  I could not resist using the brand new Beach Scene Dies on this scene!!  I die cut the "sand" and umbrella and used Distress Inks to give them colour.

Before adhering everything to the die cut panel, I did some masking of the sentiment with washi tape to break it up into two separate stamps.

I adhered everything to a kraft card base with a combination of liquid glue and foam adhesive.

Of course I stamped "fabulous" a little crooked but I went with it!  

A little Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents add a bit of sparkle and shine to different areas of the images.

I hope you enjoyed this "look back" at some of the older products that are available in the shop!!

  1. Much as we love those new releases, it's always good to remind ourselves of what we bought some time ago and need a bit more love. I love that script die. Reminds me of Bill and Ted - Totally...… xx
