Guest Post #3 for Craftin Desert Divas

Hi, friends!!  Today is the third card I made using the adorable new Nice List stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas.  I had so much fun using this set.  In fact, this is a record for me!  I have never used a single stamp set for multiple cards...ever.  It was actually fun and challenging at the same time!

Today, we are going to use the a couple of the cute critter images.  This time, I created a scene with one of the cute reindeer and the squirrel.


I started by stamping and colouring with Copics then fussy cutting the images.  For my scene, I knew I HAD to use the newer Fall Border Dies!!  This is a must have set of dies in my opinion!  I started by cutting the tree line and snow bank out of white cardstock.  I knew I wanted all my edges to have that great stitched detail, so I simply placed the pieces into the smallest rectangle die from the Fancy Frames Die Set, this way they matched perfectly with the blue background.

This card came together quickly.  Everything was mounted with a combination of foam and liquid adhesive.  I added white gel pen snow to the blue panel and a lot of glitter pen to the tree line.


I love the way this turned out!!

Thank you for stopping by!  I have ONE more card to share with you this week, so stay tuned!!

Craftin Desert Diva Guest Post #2

Hello, all!!  Welcome back!  Today, I'm sharing the second card I've created using the new Nice List stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas October Release!

Today, I've used the super cute "round man" from this set, otherwise known as Santa!!


Isn't he adorable??  I coloured him and the North Pole sign using Copic markers then fussy cut them out.  For the background I did a bit of ink blending with water droplets and used on of the Stitched in Circles Dies to cut it out.  Now here is where I thought outside the box!!  I looked through my stash of CDD dies and came across the Garden Border Die Set.  I think it's lumpy enough to look like snow, plus it has die cut lines in it to easily tuck images in!!  Second idea..those snowflakes, aren't actually snowflakes!!  They are floral images from the same Garden Border set only cut from glitter paper!  Clever, right?


I stamped that awesome sentiment on to a panel cut with one of the Fancy Frames, foam mounted the Santa circle and adhered the panel onto an A2 top fold cardbase.  And keeping it in my style, glitter pen and Glossy Accents finish this card!


Thank you so much for checking out this project!  I'll be back soon with another!!

Have a fab day!!

Guesting for Craftin Desert Divas!!

Hello again, welcome back!!  I am super excited to be a guest designer for the October 2016 Craftin Desert Divas release!  Through out this week, I'll be sharing four cards made with the new Nice List stamp set.

This 4X6 set is adorable!  I had a lot of fun working with it!  Let's take a look at my first card!!



I used the cute notebook paper die from the Mini Shaker Clips Die Set, masked the edges of each die and stamped a few of the images inside.  Everything was coloured with Copic Markers, including the background of each square.

I cut some white cardstock using the Fancy Frame Die Set (one of my all time favourite sets to this day!) and foam mounted my little pictures.  Before adhering the panel to a blue card base, I stamped one of the sentiments from this set in black ink.

To finish off and for a pop of red, I added those sweet hearts, which are also a part of the Mini Shaker Clips set!  A little glitter pen and Glossy Accents and my first project is done!!



Thank you for stopping by today and I look forward to showing my other 3 cards I've created using this stamp set!!

Have a fabulous day!
