Hi there folks.  Im so glad to be on Craftin Desert Divas blog today.  I am here to share with you our Day 4 stamp debut for May Sneak Peek Release "Away We Go" stamp set.

And this is what I have for you.



I created YouTube vdo sharing how I colored and created this one layer card scene with combination of Away We Go stamp and Island Paradise stamp set using Copic Markers.

I created the beach scene by did some masking at the surfboard and the beach bar and coconut drink stamps from Island Paradise stamp which was sadly retired stamp.  I hope you managed to get it when it's on sale.


I colored in the sand area all over with E31


I then used Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker's rag technique with colorless blender at the sand for some rough look and textures.


As for the white form line where the sand meet the water, I created by doing dots lines... lots and lots of them.  You also can used White Gel Pen or some white acrylic paint with stiff brush.

I colored all images with copic markers and the list of markers that I used is below

I created YouTube vdo sharing the process how I colored this card...


Here are some still photos for you as well..


I used MISTI for stamping but you can also use acrylic block for this job.


I wanted this card to be one layer card so I traced the medium size heart die from Nested Heart dies to marked the spotlight area.  You can also used the die to cut off that area and color it then puzzle piece it back or pop it up with form tape for some dimensions.
 
 

Here are copic colors that I used.
Spotlight area : 
Inner petals - R56 R85 R83 R81
Outer petals - R83 R81
Leaves - YG17 YG23 YG21

Outside Spotlight area : C3 C1 C0
Heart shape : B02 B00 B000


I cut the panel with Crazy Stitched Frame dies and adhered it to black card base.  I accented my card with Nuvo glow in the dark in Apple Sour to bring back some greenery to the card.  I finished it off by using Wink Of Stella at the sentiment and the flowers  and traced the "thank you" word with Glossy Accent for some dimensions.

I hope you like it and I thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a Wonderful day.

Hugs,
Jan

Happy Birthday Love

Hello Everyone!
Im super excited to be on Craftin Desert Divas blog sharing with you my little project using CDD dies and stamp to create this Birthday Banner.

Here is how it look.


I tried to think outside the box of using our frame dies to create the banner.  In this project I used Inside Scalloped Octagon dies along with Stitched Alpha dies to create the sentiments.  Since it's a banner for birthday boy so I think it'll be fun to use our Classic Cars stamp... Well most boys love cars right?.. 

Here is my YouTube vdo showing how I did it. 
Hope you like it.


Here are some still photos for you.


I began by cutting from white card stock as well as pattern paper from Doodlebug - Kraft In Color paper pad using Inside Scalloped Octagon dies both big and small ones.


I took the inner pieces and did some stenciling with Sorted Shapes 2 stencil for some light backdrops.


I colored all the images from Classic Cars stamp with copic markers and fussy cut them out.


Using Stitched Alpha dies to cut all those letters for the sentiments.  I assembly them all together using multi medium matte.  I punched holes on top of the banners and used baker twines to create the banner.  
I hope you like it.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Hugs,
Jan

Hey There Cutie... Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone!  
Today I got an Easter card to share with you and would like to invite you all to join us at Craftin Desert Divas April Mood Board Challenge. Click here to join us.


And here is the Photo Inspiration for April.
Isn't it so sweet and cute?


Look at the center of the photo... Yes I was inspired by those cuties in the eggshells..  
Here is how I made it.


I used the small oval shape from Fancy Stitched Label dies from white card stock and used one of the scallop border dies from Stitched Scalloped dies to cut it into half... I need 3 eggshells for my cuties images from Friend In Me stamp.


Using distress oxide inks in bundle sage, worn lipstick and squeezed lemonade on those eggshells and used Sorted Shapes 1 stencil on those eggshell with Nuvo Glimmer Paste Moonstone.


I cute my main panel from white cardstock with Inside Scalloped Rectangle dies and used the same scallop die that I cue for eggshell to create the puffy clouds.  I also used the grass border dies from Outdoor Landscape 2 for my grass. 

I stamped and colored all 3 cuties from Friend In Me stamp set with copic markers and fussy cut them out.  I also cut the arm areas for tugging them on the eggshells.  To finish up with the sentiment, I used Flag Banner dies on Vellum and Nuvo Drop in Bubblegum Brush.

Here is the closer look one more time 


I hope you like it and joining our April Mood Board Challenge.  There are prizes to be won and the winner will be announced at the beginning of each month.  Good Luck and Thank you for stopping by today.

Hugs,
Jan
