Be Merry ~Craftin Desert Divas~

Be Merry
   I have a clean and simple card to share showcasing one stamp set from our most recent July release at Craftin Desert Divas. Can I tell you how in love I am with this set!  I can see Sweet Season becoming my go-to set for the holidays! 


   I created simple card with a white (dry) embossed background and Fancy Frame die panel. With an electrically die cut sentiment, popped and offset with red. Coloring of this image was done with Prisma pencils. I think this stamp set is just made for colored pencils, I like the texture and warmth and think it's a great combo for these images. I'll admit, this is one of my favorite cards in awhile ;)


Here are the CDD products used on today's card:

Sweet Season

Fancy Frame Die
   Remember we post daily over at the CDD blog, so there's always lots to see! Make sure to visit soon! We'll be glad you stopped by! Hugs!

   Here is what I made today! I created a fun beachy-ish scene with a few of my favorite CDD stamps and the amazingly fun new set, Scoops! You'll find all the products and links below! 


   For something fun and different, and summery I decided to stick with a red, white and blue theme. Which was really fun to use (plus, turns out I have a couple nautical paper stacks in that color scheme!) All images were colored with Spectrum Noir makers, a white gel pen and just a few hints of wink of stella. 









Wish Upon a Star

Fresh Fruit Basket Shaped Card ~Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons~


Fresh Fruit Basket Shaped Card 
   Hiya! I'm sharing with you today to post this shaped card with files from my FAV designer die cut shop- Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. Anyone else super excited about the new files recently added into the store? I know I am! I combined a couple new sets together to make my own fruit basket. This summer my family has been all around Northern California and getting to hit up some wonderful farmers markets. From seaside to the Sierra's! So that's the inspiration behind today's shaped card. 

   Ok, can I admit this was the first time that I goofed on making a shaped card? Well I did. I totally made the base backwards. Put it together knowingly backwards and just assumed whoever I gave it to would understand. But last minute before photographing, I knew I had to fix it! LOL! 
   For the sake of time, I inked everything but stuck with brown ink and then I added some details with colored pencils. Hope you like!
   Here are the 2 new files used today...
Silly Fruit 
Strawberry Basket
   Hope you all are getting some adventures in this summer!

   I made a sweet card set for this challenge with Prisma pencil colored images from Kitchen Cuties. The background was created with lots of layers from our Stitched in Circle die. Simple cards but darling. The the small floral cluster was created with a few ancient punches. 


   I think sometime I'll make a custom box and give this little set as a gift.
