Craftin Desert Divas January Release - Get Well

I have one more project to share with you featuring the new release from Craftin Desert Divas! This one features one of my favorite stamp sets from the release - Get Well! I am seriously lacking in the get well card department and I love the images in this stamp set!

 Get Well Stamp Set

 Get Well Stamp Set

I started by sponging on some Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink through the Sorted Shapes 1 Stencil. This stencil is shaping up to be a staple in my craft room! I spattered on some black ink and colored my images from the Get Well Stamp Set with Copic markers while the ink dried. I heat embossed my sentiment onto black cardstock - one of my favorite ways to do a sentiment. It just makes it pop!

I hope my projects this week inspired you to pick up some of the new products from Craftin Desert Divas!

Summery Birthday Tag

Hi! Here in NEPA we just got about 6 inches of snow...that's not a lot by any means...but it has me wishing for warmer weather! I colored up some cute Craftin Desert Divas images and made a cute shaker tag!

Isn't it the cutest! I used Staedtler pens - a new favorite! - and a watercolor brush to color a few images from the Summer Vibin' stamp set. I die cut a tag from the Shaker Tag Die Set and used Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide and then stenciled some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink through the Sorted Shapes 1 stencil. I stamped my sentiment from the new Happy Sentiments stamp set, added some Shimmer and Citrus Bliss sequins to the shaker portion, and tied up the tag with some tulle and twine from my stash! All in all this project only took me about 30 minutes! Can't beat that!

Craftin Desert Divas January Release - Crabby Critters

I love cute critter stamp sets and this one has a seriously unique critters and sentiments! I love that these little guys are angry, sad, etc! Here's the whole set: 

 Crabby Critter Stamp Set Crabby Critters Stamp Set

This Crabby Critters Stamp Set has so many possibilities, but I thought this little crying reindeer would be super cute if he had a little potty accident! I have a 2 year old and we are going to start potty training soon - so I know a lot of pee pee accidents are in our future! It made me giggle!

I made the background with a Mermaid Lagoon Distress Crayon and colored the reindeer with Copic markers! I added some glitter and Glossy Accents, too!

Ultra Violet Inspired Unicorn Card

Hey, everyone! I am so excited that the Pantone color of the year is Ultra Violet! I have recently fell back in love with purples and I'm glad to have an "excuse" to share all of my purple creations!! Today I made a card inspired by the Craftin Desert Divas color challenge! Head over to the Facebook group to play along!

I made my background with some purple shimmer paper and a We R Memory Keepers Gemstone embossing folder. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the 3D effect! I wanted a little something more, so I added some flicks of white and gold.

I colored up the unicorn image from one of my FAVORITE CDD stamp sets - Sparkle! This set is full of adorable unicorn images, this one just happens to be my favorite! I watercolored her up with some Staedtler markers and the gold is a Gelato stick from Faber-Castel mixed with a bit of water.

I even used a pearl embossing powder for the sentiment to give it some extra pizzaz! I die cut my sentiment panel first from the smallest rectangle in the Fancy Frame Die Set and then finished off the edge with a die from the Shaker Tag Die Set. A sprinkling of watercolored hearts and this super sparkly card is done!

Craftin Desert Divas January Release - Happy dies and Happy Sentiments

Hello! Today I'm sharing another card featuring the Happy Sentiments stamp set and Happy die!

 Happy Die

Christmas is that means it's time for Valentines! I used the Happy die (which comes with the word and the layer!! I love dies like that!) and used the shadow part to repeatedly die cut a white panel. Then I used the actual word die to cut a bunch of "happy" words. I backed the die cut panel with some dark pink cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment from the Happy Sentiments Stamp Set onto matching cardstock and cut it out using a Flag Banner Die. I sprinkled on some Bubblegum sequins and this card is done!

Craftin Desert Divas January Release - Happy Sentiments and Party Time Stencil

Hello! I can't believe that it is release week for Craftin Desert Divas already! I love the versatility of the Happy Sentiments stamp set and Party Time stencil!

 Party Time Stencil

I am seriously in LOVE with this card! I used a variety of Distress Oxide inks and the Party Time stencil to create the background and then I cut my sentiment that I built from the Happy Sentiments stamp set into strips and popped them up with foam squares.

I am going to have projects from the new release all week so be sure to check back!
