Craftin Desert Diva Look for Stars | Sending Sunshine Card | C.A.S.E’d Creator Collab Event

Today’s blog post is a little bit different than my usual post (sort of). As part of a C.A.S.E. the Creator, a Craft Collab event,
I am casing a fellow crafter and creating a project inspired by her work. You can see some of her work here!

Craftin Desert Diva Look for Stars stamp set combined with Craftin Desert Diva Outdoor Landscape #2 Dies to create a Sending Sunshine handmade card.

For my project today, I Insta-stalked her page and found a ton of bright, cheery and adorable projects.
I certainly hope I did this C.A.S.E. card justice.

I stamped out the image from Look for Stars stamp set by Craftin’ Desert Diva and extended the swing rope by hand drawing it in.
Using my Scan and Cut (love that thing) I cut the image out and colored it in using my Copic markers.

Copic Markers Combination- Bunny: E57, E55, E53, E51, E50, R21 Outfit: R56, R85, R83, R81, Y17, Y15, Y11
Swing: E49, E47, E44, E43, W7, W5

I wanted the background to be very bright and cheery, so I used an MFT Cloud Stencil to create yellow clouds with
Wild Honey Distress Oxide Ink.
While I had the Distress Oxide Inks out, I inked up a piece of cardstock with Mowed Lawn and another with Walnut Stain,
which I die cut using Craftin Desert Diva’s Outdoor Landscape #2 Dies.

To finish this card, I adhered all of the elements using liquid adhesive, stamped the sentiment from
Weather Gnomes stamp set using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and set it with clear embossing powder.
For just a little more cutesy touch, I added three hearts by Doodlebug.

 

That’s all for my C.A.S.E’d project today, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Craftin Desert Diva | Pot of Gold | Altering image stamps | St. Patrick’s Day Card

Hello everyone,

Today I am sharing an adorable St. Patrick’s Day inspired card featuring Craftin Desert Diva’s Pot of Gold stamp set.

Craftin Desert Diva Pot of Gold stamp set colored with Copic markers set against a cloud background made by ink blending with Distress Oxide inks in Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover, St. Patricks’ Day card.

First, I stamped out my images and slightly altered the Troll Girl’s rainbow. I wanted to create the illusion that she was sliding down the rainbow from above, but the original image ended the Rainbow at a point and that was what I wanted to change.

Using my Misti stamping tool to help me, I inked up the image and simply wiped off the lines I wanted to change. I did stamp the image a couple of times, which was easy because of the Misti stamping tool.

Then I used an E.K. Tools Journaling Pen to simply draw in the lines I envisioned for the rainbow. After Copic coloring all of the images, I used my ScanNCut to die cut all of the images.

Working on the background, I used a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock to ink blend and create green clouds with an MFT Stencil and Distress Oxide inks in Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover.

To finish my card, I popped up the focal point images and the sentiment on fun foam and added a frame die cut out of white cardstock using a Craftin’ Desert Diva’s Inside Scalloped Rectangle Dies.

Check out the video below for all of the details on creating this card.

Spring + Summer 2018 Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop | Craftin’ Desert Diva Cactus Coffee | Copic markers

Hello everyone,

I have one last card that I made for the Spring+Summer 2018 Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop featuring a Craftin’ Desert Diva Digi Stamp of this adorable cactus with a coffee cut!

Craftin Desert Diva Cactus Coffee Digital stamp Copic colored and patterned paper Coffee card.

I printed my image onto Neenah Solar white 80lb. cardstock with a laser printer and colored my images using Copic markers.

Color combination I used:

Cactus: YG07, YG05, YG03 and YG01
Flower and cup: Y35 and Y32
Pot: RV34, RV11 and RV10

Craftin Desert Diva Cactus Coffee Digital stamp Copic colored and patterned paper Coffee card.

I used two patterned papers from two different collections for the base of the card and rectangle for the cactus to sit on.

I decided to create my own sentiment based on the discussion I had with my kids earlier about needs vs. wants. Any true coffee drinker knows that COFFEE is a NEED!

I kept this card pretty simple because of the busyness of the patterned paper and of course the star of the card, the little adorable cactus.

 

That’s all for me today, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Craftin Desert Diva ~ Apple of my Eye Digi Image ~ Copic Colored

Hey everyone,

Finally back in the craft room after what seems like an eternity to make a fall inspired card. Being in the Tampa Bay area of Florida, we evacuated during Hurricane Irma a couple of weeks ago, and it took me a couple more weeks to get back to a “normal” schedule!
This card is inspired by the Craftin Desert Divas Monthly Social Media Challenge for the month of September.

Craftin Desert Diva Apple of my eye digi stamp colored with Copic Markers and patterned paper handmade card.

I used a Craftin Desert Diva Digi image to create this card and colored it using Copic makers. I also used a piece of patterned paper from Crate Paper’s Pretty Party paper pad and a piece of Bristol smooth card stock with a water color background. I’m slowly finding my craftin’ mojo and hope to get back into the normal swing of things very soon!
Until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
