The Beauty of Winter

Hi it's Janet with The Craftin Desert Divas Design team and today I am showcasing the brand new Winter Wonderland Dies. This set is stunning and so versatile. I start with an A2 white card base folded at 5.5". I then cut a red base panel using the Crazy Stitched Frame Dies. I also use the smallest frame die from the Crazy Stitched dies and cut that out of white paper. I stamp my sentiment using Tis the Season and heat emboss with clear embossing powder to give it shine. Now for the fun part!!! I die cut all the new Winter Wonderland dies out of white paper, some I cut twice, and ink them with Distress inks. You can make your project any color combo with this technique. I decided to use greens with browns and light reds with darker reds to give dimension and interest. I finalized my project with silver sequins from the Peppermint Twist mix. I hope you enjoyed this project and I hope you joined our event going on at the Craftin Desert Divas Facebook page.

Hello this is Janet from the Craftin Desert Diva's design team and today I bring a fun Thank you card. I used the Greeting Word Dies and Tiny Sentiments stamp set by Craftin Desert Diva's. I looked to my scrap pile for color combos and found a multi colored pattern paper I used for my pallet. I die cut five Thanks and used a glue pen to adhere to a white card base. I then stamped "for everything" from the Tiny Sentiment set in black ink. This set has so many great combinations you could make a whole set and every card would be different. Thanks for visiting and happy crafting!

CAS Anything is Possible

Hi friends it's Janet with the Craftin Desert Divas design team and today I'm sharing a clean and simple card featuring the Your Wish stamp set. I start by cutting the matching SVG files on my Cricut Explore machine. I stamp this adorable genie standing in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and color her with Copics. Once this is complete I put her face down onto some double sided adhesive, I used Be Creative tape it comes in a 8 1/2" x 11" sheet. I then peal the backing and pore fine crystal glitter all over the image and rub it down with my finger. I then trim this down against the image. I cut my card base to be A2 size out of white card stock, and cut an additional white front panel. I cut the front panel in an diagonal to create a space to put a pattern paper behind it. I picked a paper that was bold and had some color variations. I place the pattern piece behind the large section and glued to my card base and then placed the bottom white piece on top of that. I stamped my sentiment "anything is possible" in black ink from the same set. I popped my sparkly genie onto some pop dots and placed her to the left side. It can still be beautiful even if it's simple! Thanks for visiting!

Get Well Wishes

Hello Craftin Desert Diva fans! It's Janet with the design team and I'm sharing this beautiful get well card today. I started with an A2 white card base. I cut a layer in red paper using the Crazy Stitched Dies. I then made my bouquet using the Flowers in Bloom stamp set and matching SVG files. I stamped the roses with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics. I then cut the wide urn with the Urn Dies out of copper metallic paper. I layered my roses in the urn until I got it just right and glued them together. I added a green Scribbled Circle die cut to the bouquet for interest.  I then stamped Get Well Wishes from the Wishful Thoughts stamp set onto a Flag Banner die. I popped the flag banner up on pop dots and added silver sequins for the final look. 
Thanks for visiting today, Happy Crafting!
