Here is how I made this card:

1. I stamped the moose image on the Copic friendly cardstock, colored with Copic markers, and fussy cut. I colored the edge around the fussy cut image with black marker.
2. I die cut using 3 biggest dies from the Fancy Frames Dies set. I also die cut a scallop circle from the Stitched in Circle dies. I used different greens and yellow Distress inks to color the edges of all the die cuts. (Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive, Twisted Citron, and Squeezed Lemonade)
3. I die cut grass with a green cardstock using the grass die from the Outdoor Landscape Dies set, couple of mini banners using Mini Banner Die, and a little bow from the Party Dies.
4. I cut a little yellow text bubble from the Mix it up dies and stamped the sentiment.
5. I assembled all the layers on the kraft card base using Scor-tape and foam tape.
6. I finished the card off by adding some Limeaid Sprinkles and Sunny Days Sequins.

Gopher Spinning card

 

Hello everyone!

I’m up on Craftin Desert Divas’ blog today with this spinner card I made with “Popped Up” mini stamp set.

I’ve been wanting to make a fun spinner card, and I thought this adorable gopher image is perfect for it!

CDD_Daily2_FE

Here is how I made this card:

  1. I stamped the gopher image on a Copic friendly paper, colored it with Copic markers, and fussy cut the image.
  2. I prepped all the die cut layers using “Fancy Frames”and “Stitched in Circle” die sets.
  3. For the base layer, I used a sheet of patterned paper from “Sweet Things” 6×6 paper pad. I colored the large scallop circle frame pink with Copic marker and applied Clear Wink of Stella to add interest.
  4. For the middle circle frame, die cut grass with “Outdoor Landscape Dies,” colored with Distress inks, and glued it to on the bottom. I also stamped the sentiment on the top of this frame.
  5. I sandwiched 2 pennies and a foam circle, and glued the gopher on top for it to spin between the circle frames.
  6.  I first adhered the background layer with some foam tape, then I slipped the gopher spinner between the circle layers, before securely adhering the middle circle frame.
  7. I die cut a vellum banner using “Mix It Up Dies,” stamped the sentiment from “Say It Big” stamp set with Versamark, and heat embossed in silver. I attached it on the bottom of the card with “Matte Sprinkles”

TCBJ Birthday Facebook Hop!

Today is the Day2 of the Too Cute By Jessica’s Birthday Facebook Hop featuring Craftin Desert Divas. TCBJ is turning  3 and we are celebrating with some new SVG Files & Digi Stamps along with freebies and fabulous prizes.

HOP STARTS HERE -> CDD- https://www.facebook.com/CraftinDesertDivas

Here is what I made for the celebration:

TCBJ_HopFeb16_FE

As soon as I saw the “Birthday Girl with Balloons” digital stamp, I fell in love with it. For this hop, I wanted to create something soft and sweet with this sweet girl! I would like to mention that pistachio ice cream and orange sorbet was my inspiration for the color scheme.

How I created this card:

  1. I sized and printed “Birthday Girl with Balloons” digital stamp. The girl was printed on the cardstock and the sentiment on the vellum. I fussy cut the girl image and colored with Copic markers.
  2. I die cut the banner out of silver glitter cardstock, and cut another one with white cardstock. I colored the inner pieces of the white banner die cut and pieced them with the silver glitter banner. I also die cut a little bow to embellish the balloons. All the dies are from CDD’s “Party Dies.”
  3. I prepped the background by water coloring and splashing with Distress inks (Cracked Pistachio & Dried Marigold). I let it dry completely and die cut the background panel with CDD’s Fancy Frame die.
  4. I swiped the Versamark ink around the white card base and heat embossed in silver.
  5. I adhered all the elements on the card base and finished off the card by adding some clear wink of stella & glossy accents on balloons and the party hat. I also adhered some CDD’s “Sunny Days” sequins.

You’re A-maze-ing (Panda shaker)

Hello everyone!

Today I would like to share a cute panda shaker card!

This card is very similar to the “Lovies” shaker card I posted yesterday. This time, I used Craftin Desert Divas’ “Panda Pals” Stamp set.

CDD_PandaShkr_FE

  1. I chose 4 little pandas from the set, colored with Copic markers, and fussy cut them. I also stamped the bamboo and paws on a 4″ square Neenah cardstock and colored with copics & white gel pen.
  2. I gave each of the couples a shaker “room.” The windows are die cut with smallest circle from the “Stitched in Circle” dies. I put foam tape around the circles & around the square, and filled it with some green heart sequins and moss. I sealed the shaker with 4″ square Neenah cardstock that I had aligned and adhered 4 pandas.
  3. I stamped the sentiment “You’re A-maze-ing” from CDD’s “Farmers Market” Stamp set with Versamark ink and heat embossed in white.
  4. I adhered the shaker on the 4.25″ square black card base with 1/2″ Scor-tape and finished the card by tying a bow with twine on top.
