Craftin Desert Divas August Release Blog Hop




   Welcome to the CDD Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop.  All stamps &  Dies are in the CDD Shop and now available for purchase!!!

   Here they are...

(I have almost unlimited ideas for this set! Love!)

(Am I the only person on earth that has never had a cup of coffee?)

(I promise, with the addition of the little faces, these veggies are the cutest ever!)

(What do I even say about this crazy silliness! LOL!)



   The Autumn Wishes Bundle is available for this weekend only thru Sunday. 
This special price is for what is in stock only and ends 8/30 10pm MST.

We also have 3 new sequins: Limited Addition: Corn Maze, Candy Corn and Autumn Wishes


    This project was a joy (and a lil' bit pain) to create! Shakers are always tricky. I used Fancy Frames (die set) to create this and cut 2 layers with fun foam and added some of our new and LIMITED sequins in Corn Maze. 


   I started by stamping this scene in a light ink and then coloring. After everything was colored I went over the outlines again but with a darker brown pencil. After some highlighting and shadowing I was tickled with it. I'm not sure where I got the ideas for the sun rays but think that really made it pop!



    I even stamped my own tone on tone background with the pumpkin and leaves from Autumn Wishes (squirrel and sentiment are from that set as well). The basket and pumpkin are from Farmers Market. I love the option to combine sets and these do go together perfectly! 

   The last detail was the coat the entire frame in loose glitter...its gorgeous but darn, didn't get a good photograph to show that off! Ugh!

Great shaker card.

Donna K said...

Your details are just amazing. I have never tried stamping with a light color and shading in like this. I am sure I would need lots of practice but you mastered this perfectly. Your design has such a soft feel to it and the pumpkin background is just great. Your sun rays are a great touch...very talented, Leah! You should be proud of this for sure.
