Day 10 of Advent Calendar 2017 ........

Happy Friday everyone! 
I am stopping by today to share a couple of cards 
I created using the newest release from Craftin' Desert Divas. 
It is available here

I created three cards to share. 
For the first card, I used the Far Out stamp set. 




I began by creating the alcohol ink background. 
I am a newbie to this technique. I love the look 
these inks create. 


For the second card, I did the same technique 
once again just using different colors. 
The unicorns from the Sparkle stamp set are super cute. 


For the third card, I used the PS I Love You stamp set. 
For the background, I used the Hearts Galore stencil. 


I also have the day 10 of my advent calendar to share with you. 
I used the Holiday Sweater stamp set along with the Nice List set. 




I hope you enjoy and feel inspired to create! 
Thank you very much for stopping by! 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day!

My Favorite Things Guest Designer .....YAY !!!

Hello everyone! 
Happy Thursday!  I am super excited, honored, and thankful to be 
today's guest designer on the My Favorite Things blog!! 
I can not thank My Favorite Things 
enough for this amazing opportunity! 
It is a dream come true! 

I created this card to share with you using two products from the brand new
release. Town Bears stamp set and. It is such an adorable set. 


I began by die cutting the base of my card using Die-namics
Stitched Rectangle dies. I used the largest one. 
I then stamped the bear, trees, and houses using MFT Hybrid Ink 
in the color Black Licorice.  I created masks for the images 
in order to create a patterned background. 




After taking off all of the masking (favorite part when creating these types of cards)
I colored my images using Copic markers. 


For the greens in the trees, I used G99, 94, YG95, YG67, YG17, YG13,
YG03, YG21. For the trunk of the trees, I used E47, 44, and 41


For the navy areas I used, B99, B95B93, and B0000.
For my bear, I began with YR27, YR24, YR21, and YR20
(I used these colors for the rust toned areas as well). 
I then went over the bear using E47, E44, E55, E35, and E31.

I loved how the background came out. I wanted to make my little bear standout a bit more, I decided to die cut another piece of cardstock using the same pale
I stamped the bear and the trees once again and colored them using
the same colors from the background. 
I glued the finished piece to the base of my card. 
My card was finished. 

I also have the treat box I created for my advent calendar to share with you. 
For today's box I used the same file from the online Silhouette store. 
It is the Favor Box by Lori Whitlock design ID# 187420
I used the adorable Town Bears stamp set again. 



I used the same color combinations of Copic as I did for yesterday's box,
you can find the ones I used here
For the 11 I used the Pop-Up Numbers Die-namics set. 





I truly loved creating with this set. 
I hope you enjoy and feel inspired to create.
Thank you so much for stopping by. 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day

CDD Social Media Mood Board Challenge December 2017 ....

Happy Wednesday everyone!
I am so happy to be stopping by today...
I feel as if I haven't crafted in a while. 
It has been a bit busy for me and I have to be honest 
I feel as though my crafty mojo took a mini vacation, lol. 
I am happy to say that today (thank you GOD) I felt creative
and actually had ideas!!  YAY!!! 

For today I created this treat box as part of my Advent Calendar. 
I love the Winter Village Digital stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas. 
From the moment Tara showed us this set, I knew I would love creating
with it. 


I began by creating a scene onto my favor box die cut file. 
This box is from the online Silhouette store
Favor Box by Lori Whitlock
design ID# 187420.


I cut out my scene and colored it in using Copic markers. 
For my colors, I was inspired by our current
 CDD Monthly Social Media Mood Board Challenge:

I hope you will join us, create something and share with us on the CDD Gallery. 
I used my all time go to red combination R46, R27, R17, and R05. 
I added a bit of R89 and E18 to deepen the shadow areas. 
For the green areas, I used G99, G94, YG17, and YG03.
I then added my 'snow' using my Uni-Ball white pen. 


Here is how it looked once I finished coloring. 









I love how easy it was to create. 
I hope you enjoy. 
Than you so much for taking the time to stop by. 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day.

Today we are sneak peeking two stamp sets.

I created two cards to share with you.

For the blue areas, I used BG13, BG10, and BG0000.

I then used Distress Inks to create the background. 
I used the Stitched Scallop Dies set to create clouds borders.

For the next card, I used the P.S.I Love You stamp set. 


This image has adorable images. 


I used Distress Inks once again to add color to the sky and the grass.
