From Our House to Yours - PPPR dt

Happy Monday!!!  Today is my turn to post over on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' Blog and I have a card to share -


As soon as I saw the newly released Birdhouses Cutting files I knew I needed to play with them!!
To create my card I also used the tree branch from the Bird on Branch cutting files.  I cut out two of the birdhouses but did a little editing in my silhouette software and using the knife tool I cut off the bases of the birdhouses.  I popped up the birdhouses with some foam tape to add extra dimension to the card.  I hope I have inspired you with my card today - thanks so much for stopping by!!

CDD June Release Inspiration Showcase Day 3

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Craftin Desert Divas Day 3 of our June Release Inspiration Showcase! For the next few days we are going to highlight our new products by sharing the fabulous Design Team's projects for each stamp set that was just released!
Today we are showcasing "Greeting Word Dies" and "Tiny Sentiments" stamp set.

 

We are doing these showcases on our Facebook fan pages so you will want to head over HERE to start at the top of today's showcase and that is where you will want to leave your comments to in order to be eligible for the prizes.
I created a card using both of these new sets along with the "Botanical Layers" stamp set . I did a bit of masking to stamp my images and used 3 different ink colors for each flower. I used Memento dye based inks for all of my flowers. I cut my word die out 3x and glued the layers together to give it a bit of dimension.


 I cut my top layer smaller in the width than my cardbase and popped it up on fun foam. I added some black heart designer paper on my base card and offset my top layer so that the black paper strip showed on the left side. I finished my card off with some "Fairy Dust Sequins" .

Mr Fix It Father's Day Card - PPPR dt

Happy Monday my fellow paper crafters!! Today is my turn to post over on the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' Blog.  I hope you had a great weekend and were able to stop by the PPPR Facebook hop :-)  I am still working on getting ready for Father's Day and created this card for my husband.  He really is quite handy so this will be perfect for him!!



I used the "Power Drill Cutting Files" for my power drill.  I created an offset to back him up on - I did this to help his eyebrows from getting lost on the background paper.  My background paper is created from the "Man Oh Man Pattern Pack 1".  I did a print and cut with my Cameo using the digital paper.  


Well, one more card down and one more to go and then I should be ready for Father's Day!!  how about you?  I hope I have inspired you for the special man in your life!!

CDD June Product Release Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to the CDD June Product Release Blog Hop. 
All stamps are in the CDD Shop and now available for purchase HERE.








We also offer SVG stamp outlines for .99 they work perfectly with your cutting machine. You must have a program that opens these files. This is a great alternative to coordinating dies and much less expensive. 


New $1.00 sequins....







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



For my first card I used some images from the "Peek A Boo Animals" stamp set.  I created my windows using a die from the "Pocket Pieces Hello Dies" and did my best to cut 3 windows evenly spaced.  I popped that layer up on foam tape and added in my animals peeking out of the windows.  I used the new "Greeting Word Dies" and cut out the word thanks 3x - twice in black, once in gold and then glued the layers together slightly offsetting the gold layer.  My sentiment is from the new "Tiny Sentiments" stamp set which goes perfectly with the new word dies!


Here's a closer look -


For my second card I used the new "Crazy Stitched Frame Dies" and using the largest die in the set cut out some watercolor paper.  I watercolored a simple background.  The rest of my images along with my sentiment are from "The Sky Is the Limit" stamp set and after I colored them in I cut them out with the coordinating dies.



Here are the specials for this release:

**New sequins mixes will be on SALE for $1.00.

**FREE SHIPPING with minimum on orders placed.

$10 USA use Code: 10SHIP

CDD Linky Party - Masculine


Hello friends! The theme for this Linky Party at Craftin Desert Divas is "Masculine"! We would love to see all of your projects that fit this theme! So go ahead and craft it and link it up on the Craftin Desert Diva's Blog.




Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly Linky Party over 
at the CDD blog. We hope you will share your projects with us! And don't forget 
about  the prizes! Every Linky Party will have a winner and a Top 3! 
The more times you link up...the more chances you have to win!!

Our Sponsors for this Linky Party are:

One 4"x 6" stamp set
One Digi Stamp of choice

Here is what I made..



To create my card I used the following CDD products -

Build a Scene 2 - http://craftindesertdivas.com/build-a-scene-2/
Happy Celebrations - http://craftindesertdivas.com/happy-celebrations/
Fancy Frame Dies - http://craftindesertdivas.com/fancy-frame-dies/
Pocket Pieces HI dies - http://craftindesertdivas.com/pocket-pieces-hi-dies/


I started off by making a "mask" to create the rectangle area on my card.  I used a rectangle die from Pocket Pieces HI dies and cut out an opening on a scrap piece of cardstock.  I taped that down over my watercolor paper.  I then stamped my image from the Build a Scene 2 stamp set (did some masking on that too) with Versafine black onyx ink.  I used my Zig Clean Color real brush markers to color in my image and create my background.  To finish up my card I die cut it using the Fancy Frame Dies, stamped my sentiment from the Happy Celebrations stamp set and then popped that layer up with some fun foam onto my card base.

Here is another look -



Here again are the products I used to create my card -



  


Thanks for stopping by today!!  I can't wait to see your creation(s)!!
