Sneak Peek: "Garden Border" and "Garden Accessories"

Hello Crafty Friends! 

I am here to share with you a sneak peek of the upcoming Craftin' Desert Diva's upcoming release! They are releasing a couple super cute die sets called "Garden Border" and "Garden Accessories" which are featured on my cards that I'm showing you today! These dies won't be in the shop until this Friday, May 26th. I hope you like what I've created!

Garden Border 






For this card, I made a shaker card using elements from the new "Garden Border" Die Set, as well as the gnome from "Whimsical Wishes" Clear stamp set, "Flutter By" Digital Stamp and the "Stitched In Circles" Die Set (previously released).

"Garden Accessories"







For this card, I wanted to create a scene using elements from both "Garden Border" and "Garden Accessories" Die Sets. I also used the "Window Pane" Die Set, "Flower Basket Skunk" Digital Stamp and "Beautiful Day" Digital Stamp

Thank you for stopping by! I hope that you've been enjoying all the sneak peeks the team has been sharing. Join us again on Release Day for more inspiration! Have a great day/night!

"Served with Fun" Treat Bag

Hello everyone!

It's time for the Craftin' Desert Divas April 2017 New Release Previews! They are releasing 5 new clear stamp sets,  dies and digi stamps and 2 new sequin mixes! For the sneak peek today, I'm using the new "Treat Bag" Die and "Served with Fun" Digital Stamp. The digital stamp is already available for you to purchase, so just click the link above to purchase your's! The entire release will be coming to the shop this Thursday! Anyway, I hope you like what I've created with the new products!






I colored the image with my copic markers as usual. I framed the image with one of the dies from the "Treat Bag" Die Set and added another of the same shape facing another direction. It's hard to see with the lace ribbon, but the sentiment says "Served with Fun" which is included with the digital stamp image. I also added some Nuvo drops (I used Jewel drops, but you can find the crystal drops in the shop which are just as lovely) around the image and sentiment to add some extra dimension to the treat bag. I don't remember the exact copic combos that I used for the image, but if you're interested, just leave a comment and I'll try to figure it out for you =) !

Thank you for stopping by! I hope that you liked my sneak peek project for the new releases. Feel free to leave some comments and check back here on the 21st & 22nd for more sneak peeks! We also have the rest of the DT showing sneak peeks on the Facebook Event Page and if you click "Going" you can find out about digis that are free for 24 hours! How cool is that?! Have a great rest of your day!

Lamb With Flowers

Hello Crafty Friends!


I hope that you're all doing well. Can you believe that Easter is this Sunday?! I wanted to share with you my project for Craftin' Desert Divas using the adorable image called "Lamb with Flowers" and super cute paper from Doodlebug Design "Spring Things" 6" x 6" Paper Pad ! I hope that you like what I've created with this cute little lamb!



I colored the image with my copic markers as usual. I don't remember the exact combos for this one since I colored it during the March 30 Day Coloring Challenge. For added dimension, I added a bunch (okay, alot) of Nuvo Jewel Drops in Rose Water and Lilac. I layered it on top of patterned paper by Doodlebug Design from their Spring Things pad, available also in the CDD shop! This project is also inspiration for our current Facebook challenge which is going on all month! 

Thank you for stopping by! I would appreciate any comments if you would like to leave some. Also, if you want to purchase using my affiliate links in this post, I would very much appreciate that as I get a little compensation at no extra cost to you! Have a wonderful day!

Ellie with Heart Cupcake

Hello crafters!

I am here with my next project for The Paper Nest Dolls. We are starting a new "Anything Goes" Challenge over on the Challenge Blog, so I hope you'll join in! Here are a few details that can also be found on the Challenge Blog:


We have changed the way we will be awarding prizes from now on, and there will only be one prize for the overall winner.  The top 3 will still be named and will still have the honor of displaying the Top 3 winner badge on their blog.  From now on, the overall winner will win a Paper Nest Dolls digital image!  So, if you are the overall winner, be sure to send a message to papernest.challenges@gmail.com with your choice of image and indicate in the subject line that you are the Monthly Winner.  





I colored the image with my copic markers as usual. I cut her out with a die from my stash ( I think C.C. Designs?) and layered her on some new Lawn Fawn 6" x 6" paper. I added some lace behind her and then added some flower clusters around her as well as sequins. I also added a heart border by C.C. Designs to compliment the hearts on her. The card base is "Marshmallow" from Bazzill Basics Cardstock Card Shoppe line.

I hope that you like my card and that it inspires you to enter your own creation into the challenge this month! Have a wonderful day!
