Repeat stamping of this amazing sentiment helped create a great back drop for this lovely holiday floral. I used my large Misti tool to help me move the sentiment for perfect placement without having to measure. I stamped in a light green and for the focus sentiment in gold embossing powder. I added some gold sequins from a CDD mix and there you go! I actually think I will make a few more of these and have this as my main holiday card to give out. I think it's a show stopper but it was fairly easy so it shouldn't be too bad to mass produce.

Craftin Desert Divas
I am beyond excited to share these projects with you! I hope you love them because both of them were a lot of work! But super worth it. But did I mention the work? LOL!
Well today is the last day of our October Release Event. There has been an enormous amount of incredible projects shared and today, I personally shaved the best for last!
This first card features every critter from Santa's Helpers (minus one). These were stamped and masked to create these friends all hanging out together. I was able to stamp at one time, and then sit and trim all these out while I chilled on the couch with the family. Creating this card another time. The scene is watercolored with a soft snow falling over top.
I mixed a bit of clear glitter with my texture paste over a confetti styled stencil. Taking care to scrape the small pieces that did overlap my sentiment to make sure that stayed nice and bold.
As if I didn't get enough of trimming images and masking...I went even smaller! Each of these little nuts are a single stamp! And believe it or not...I did NOT go nuts making this! Yay! This is another favorite design of mine. In hindsight, I really wish I would have made multiples of this because it was a lot of work for a single card.
These images were colored with Spectrum Noir makers and details added with Prisma colored pencils, a white gel pen and a few gold highlights added to each.
Thanks for sticking around and checking these out! Have a GREAT weekend!

This would be easy to mass produce too. The only time consuming part would be die cutting. But not bad if you worked in stages!

I mixed some awesome CDD dies with some electronic die cutter pine trees, topped with a white pen to add snow.
Ok, I did some serious sentiment surgery to make this sentiment. But guess what, the stamps are totally okay with being cut up! Sometimes it's the easier way to trying to mask.
Don't get sick of me yet! I have a couple more days of posting! Keep coming back!

The details added were super easy...a glitter gel pen and some white Enamel Accents! That's it!
Now the good part...the CDD goodies...

I did lots of layering for the background using rich fall pattern papers. I love this tone on tone red leaf paper! It was perfect for my die cut, stamped and embossed sentiment. I added some gold paint splatters to tie in with the sentiment and added touches to the stamped images. So pretty, so Autumn!
Plus (my very favorite stamp set from CDD!)

Have an incredible week!!!!!!!!!!!
