Winter Cheer ~Craftin Desert Divas Mini December Release~

   We have having a MINI Release for December for Craftin Desert Divas! Our beloved digi stamps are being made into stamps! Thanks to your suggestions and requests! We have 2 darling sets to share, today and tomorrow!

   Check out our event page here

   The images were colored mainly with Spectrum Noir markers, though I did add in a bit of colored pencil as well. I gave a light halo of yellow around the images using colored pencils. I did the same for creating an area to ground the images. And then I came in from the outside in with distress inks. 

     You can find all the details by heading to the CDD shop to purchase this sweet new stamp set! 

    I used our Stitched Circle Die and some sequins on the card!

December Social Media Challenge

   Hi! I'm posting today to share a card for the Craftin Desert Divas monthly challenge, our Social Media Mood Board is a great photo collage for inspiration, it helps you create a project using something from CDD and then you just post using #CDDMONTHLY. So great, and don't forget to share on our FB gallery here

   Can I just say that I'm giving you all permission to make simpler cards! Nice of me, right? Though it's not always easy to keep to a more simple design, they can still be so cute! And you've got to give yourself permission to create, even if you have less time and that means not creating something that's over the top. So, with that being said, I really like this simple card. I took my time watercoloring this and fussy cutting it out and so went with a clean and simple base.

   I did a bit of masking to add the Santa hat directly to the gingerbread boy from Sweet Season. I cut a slit in the mug from Kitchen Cuties to add the candy cane from Tis the Season. I also mixed sentiments from both of those stamp sets as well.

   Here's our gorgeous Mood Board...

   And the product links...

   Hope you'll join us and share if you create! Don't forget #CDDMONTHLY
   Also, join us TOMORROW for a mini release! You will NOT want to miss the next 2 days! I'll be back to share! Hugs!

Hello You ~Craftin Desert Divas~

   Oh gosh, I hope you like this card share today! I shared yesterday...and just a lot this week due to our November Release Week at CDD! Good stuff all week long. Today we are sharing for a DARLING new set called Hello You. Actually, you can find the entire new release here! Check it out!
   This card idea was my very first thought when I first saw this. To have this little gift sitting on some Christmas gifts. I so gotta make this again but do a birthday version! I used the matching single bow from Sweet Season and then drew the rest of the gifts and ribbon. Coloring was done with Spectrum Noir alcohol makers. Additions were done with a white and glitter gel pen. And just for something a tiny bit different, I clustered the snow as if it were falling from the left corner into the bottom right of the card. 

   Here are the sets I used...
Hello You

Sweet Season

Santa's Helpers

   Hope you like this one!!! Thanks for visiting so often lately!!!
