Craftin' Desert Diva's January Product Release Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to the CDD January Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop. 

All stamps & Dies are in the CDD Shop and now available for purchase HERE.


















Here's what I've created for you...





For my first card I used the Lovies stamp set.  I think these kitties are just so sweet!  I stamped them on 110lb white cs, then I masked them with a post it note, I diecut a circle with the Stitched in Circles dies in copy paper to make a mask for the hill of grass.  I then used my Tim Holtz's distress inks to blend the green grass and blue sky, spritzing with water afterwards to get the distressed look.  I colored the kitties with my Copic markers.  I used Fancy Frames dies to cut the mats.  For the kitties mat I used fun foam to pop them up on the card.






For my 2nd card I used the Popped Up mini stamp set.

I stamped the cute lil gopher on watercolor paper then I used Lyra Aquacolor crayons to color in the hill and sky, I then went over it with a wet brush to blend.  I used Fancy Frames dies for the mat and the In Line dies for the 'thanks' diecut, which I cut directly from the watercolor paper.  To pop it up I cut 5 more 'thanks' in reg white cardstock and layered them underneath.  I colored the lil gopher with Zig Clean Color Real Brush watercolor pens.  Stamped the sentiment with Versafine onyx black ink.  To finish off the card I added the new Pink Heart Sequins and added a ribbon from my stash.

  12. So lovin' your coloring & shading on the "Lovies" cats stamp...it's purr-fect. Your blending work on both cards is flawless. You definitely used the Stitched in Circles dies in a way I never would think of (very clever). I so want to pinch those sweet cheeks on your gopher. The heart sequin is the perfect embellishment to finish such a wonderful card.

  18. SO MUCH INKY LOVE in your cards Steph, the recipients are sure to LOVE opening the envelopes and find these inside!!!
    Your kitties look SO CUTE on their grassy hilltop and your gopher ADORABLE with her rosy cheeks and hearty sky!!! LOVE your popped thanks too ... I tried this for the 1st time the other day and didn't add enough layers, so the sentiment is lost to the background and I will have to top it off with a plain layer before I can use it.
    THANK YOU for sharing your AWESOME INKY INSPIRATION :)
