CDD June 2017 Release Sneak Peek Day 3 ....

Happy Tuesday everyone !! 
I am stopping by today to share a couple of cards 
I have created . 

It is Day 3 of our Craftin Desert Divas June Release 
Sneak Peeks . 
Today we are sneak peeking the 
Western Bandits stamps . 

 I used Distress Oxide Inks once again for this card . 
I used the colors Broken China, Spiced Marmalade, Vintage Photo and Peeled Paint . 
I also added a bit of Chipped Sapphire to darken the sky a bit . 
 I colored the image in using Copic markers .

For the second card I created to share with you today , 
I was inspired by the current Color Challenge 
from My Favorite Things 
and the Camp Create Challenge 

For this card I went with the Spectacular Shakers challenge for this card . 
I used the super cute 
Beautiful Girl stamp set . 

 I love the colors from the challenge and knew I had to use them for this card . 
 I colored in my images using Copic markers . 
I started with RV69, 66 and 63 for my plum shade . 
I then added a bit of YR16 to the edges of her tutu then blended inwards with 
Y38 , Y35, Y23 then a bit of B000 and B01 . 

 I used tulle for the first time for my shaker , inspired by the amazing Jennifer Mcguire . 
 I die cut a matching piece of cardstock to go on the inside of my card and used my 
Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet to create the background . 
The sentiment is from the 
adorable Forest Friends stamp set . 

I also created a matching spread in my mini happy planner 
with the same colors and images . 


Thank you so much for stopping by !
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day !!

Happy Birthday with Mama Elephant ....

I am back with a second post for today <3 . 
If you would like to see the first one , 
please feel welcome to click here . 

For the second post I am sharing two birthday cards 
I created for some of the sweetest IG 
crafty ladies I have been blessed to meet !! 

I used the adorable Lunar Animals 
and Little Edibles stamp sets 
from Mama Elephant . 

 For the first card I heat embossed the sentiment from the Mama Elephant Surprise Sentiments stamp set . The fonts in this set are beautiful !! 
 I used Bristol Smooth cardstock for my card base since I knew I would be doing a bit of watercoloring. I started by adding the Distress Oxide Inks in the colors Worn Lipstick , Cracked Pistachio and a bit ot Wilted Violet . 
 I heat dried it , then went over the middle area again with an actual watercolor in a minty tone . 
I heat dried that layer as well . 
 I then colored up the images and assembled my card . 
 For the second card I went with the same design , with the exception of heat embossing . 
Instead I stamped the sentiment using Ranger Archival Ink .
 I began with Distress Oxide Ink in Wilted Violet .
 I did the same process as the card above . 
 Here is a look of both cards side by side . 
These were quick and fun to create !! 

Thank you so much for stopping by !! 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day !!

CDD June 2017 Release Sneak Peek Day 2 ...

Hello and Happy Monday !! 
It is Day 2 of our 
Craftin Desert Divas
June 2017 Release 
Sneak Peeks . 

Today we are sneak peeking the 
Wild West stamp set 
and 
the Southwest Border Dies . 

 I decided to create a pop up card .
 I used a file from the Silhouette Store . 
The only adjustment I made to the card base was to make it a bit smaller . 
 I added Distress Inks to the backgrounds to make the sky and ground . 
I am loving the new Distress Oxide inks , 
I used a couple of those for this card ( I will list them below ) . 

 I die cut the Southwest Border die , then I inked it up to match my card base . 
I did the same thing to the cactus . 
 I then used my Copics to color in my little cowboy , saloon and horse . 
It was such a fun and easy card to create !!! 
I hope you will join us for the 
CDD Facebook Event here

Thank you so much for stopping by !!
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day !!
